CAUKIN Studio: Impact through Architecture

CAUKIN Studio is a social enterprise that creates impact through architecture. They use their projects as a vehicle to educate and upskill local communities and international participants in design and construction. 

They believe that every human being should have the opportunity and tools to shape the spaces that they inhabit and that they should all benefit from the quality of life that is achieved through informed design. That’s why they’ve spent the last 7 years designing, building and educating on more than 30 community projects around the world.

Their projects span across 12 countries, in 5 different continents and consist of healthcare, education and community buildings.
