NAIDI COMMUNITY HALL

NAIDI COMMUNITY HALL
Fiji

Used to host weddings, birthday parties, funerals and much more, the community hall is at the heart of communities throughout Fiji. The Naidi Community have been without a space for 7 years, following the gradual decay of their previous hall, which was eventually deemed to be unsafe for use.

The Naidi Community Hall was built to serve the village of 400 people and 75 households. CAUKIN Studio worked in partnership with The Jazmin Fund, a charitable arm of the Naqaqa Giving Foundation to realise the project. The Jazmin Fund, run by Jazmin Grace Grimaldi, brought a performing arts theme to the hall and it’s design, due to Jazmin’s career in music and performing arts. The brief was to create a space which enabled the Naidi Community to express themselves creatively whilst providing a structure strong enough to take shelter in.
