Global Partners for Development Joins Forces with Bay Area Architect Peter Strzebniok

We are excited to announce our partnership with Peter Strzebniok, the Principal and co-founder of nottoscale.

The partnership was formed after a chance meeting where Peter learned about the impactful work that Global Partners has been doing in East Africa over the last four decades. Impressed by the organization’s dedication to empowering local communities and its focus on sustainable development, Peter reached out to lend his expertise to the cause.

Both Peter and Global Partners share the belief that local people have the right to decide what development projects will best serve their communities. By working together, they strive to bring innovative and sustainable solutions to the challenges facing communities in East Africa.

The project was to design a new canteen for 260 students at the Community School in Chonnabot, Thailand.

Peter brings a wealth of experience in architecture and design to the partnership. His firm, nottoscale, has worked on a variety of projects including civic buildings, commercial spaces and residential homes in Ghana, Thailand and the US. Throughout his work, Peter has demonstrated a commitment to sustainable design and a belief in the transformative power of architecture.

We look forward to working with Peter to identify new opportunities for community-led development in East Africa. With Peter’s design expertise and our longstanding relationships on the ground we aim to develop building systems for projects that use local materials, labor and expertise, empowering communities to thrive for years to come.

Together, we’re embarking on a groundbreaking pilot project to develop a sustainable water treatment site on the shores of Lake Victoria in Homa Bay, Kenya. The project will involve implementing a cutting-edge wastewater treatment system designed by 374Water, around which we’ll create an entire infrastructure that fosters a circular economy of communal, educational, and commercial features.

Our vision is to not only improve the water quality in the region but to also enhance the quality of life for the local communities. By leveraging our expertise and resources, we hope to create a sustainable and equitable ecosystem that promotes economic growth, environmental responsibility, and social development. We’re excited to work alongside 374Water and nottoscale to make a positive impact together. Stay tuned for more updates as we embark on this journey of community-driven development and sustainable innovation.

This partnership is a testament to the power of collaboration and the importance of working together to achieve common goals. We look forward to an impactful partnership with Peter and nottoscale.
