Reconstruction of a water station combined with a 10 m high cooling tower as central village object. The 28 sqm former cistern room has been remodelled into a naturally air-conditioned, shaded, and water providing space by using the traditional technique of cooling towers.

The debris has been put into 7 gabiones that form a “recycling-bench-installation” in front of the tower. Two water tanks, each with a volume of 4000 l, are on top of each other inside the tower.

The water station is a PPP project (Public Private Partnership) of the GIZ.
