|DOMAT is a not-for-profit architectural practice.
We work with communities and people who do not normally have access to architects. We believe that everybody is entitled to a good living environment, and that good design should be available at all levels of society. Through the processes of research, design and implementation, we engage with local people to understand the communities involved.|

|Hygiene Station for Cattlefield Village School|
Hygiene is often less valued in a rural context; facilities may be neglected and out of maintenance. Charities and NGO provide vital software programmes to teach children the importance of for better hygiene, but without decent facilities to shape their habit it is not easy for the children to change their way of living.
In KPMG's Fangniucang Hope School, we have redesigned the facilities so that the shower rooms and toilet are united into one architecture. The building will not only tackle the hygiene issues, but also create a sustainable living habit for children to love.
