The design is carried out using the Design Thinking method, namely by collecting ideas from various literatures to obtain a solution. The results of this design are an orphanage that can accommodate the needs of orphanage children in the form of buildings with rooms arranged in a zoning manner, the shape of the building is made thin to maximize natural lighting and ventilation, the park as an open space for children's social activities, and self-development facilities for children in the form of recreation rooms and hydroponic gardens.
