Doreen Adengo, Jonathan Kateega
Adengo Architecture worked with renewable energy company SoloGrid to design a mobile medical clinic aimed at improving healthcare access in rural Uganda. The result is a shipping container modified for travel on the back of a truck. We provided an outdoor waiting area and, inside the truck, public and private consultation rooms.
The container's roof comprises a layer of corrugated metal sheets sloped to accommodate solar panels and direct rainwater into a water-storage unit. A purification system cleans the water, which is then directed to a sink inside the private consultation room.
Material selection focused on maximizing durability and minimizing weight to ensure longevity and ease of transport.
