Manhal Clinic is a project for a medical facility in Garissa, Kenya, near the Somali border. The project was instigated by a Somali community in Australia and has an emphasis on childbirth and infant health facilities.

The 5000m2 building acts as the local hospital and contains also a substantial outpatient clinic, teaching facilities for medical staff, accommodation for visiting practitioners. The design has an efficient footprint with a secure internal courtyard, and a sun screening skin on its perimeter. This screen creates an ornamental facade and a circulation arcade with informal sheltered spaces, built from a low tech masonry construction.
