Affordable Housing- Kenya- Maisonette Concept (100 sq m)
My company Ujenzibora seeks to provide a series of affordable housing solutions to first-time home owners in Kenya. This great service can only happen in partnership with your input and that of Arcbazar. We consider your contribution a great service in solving the housing challenge in Kenya. The winning design shall be uploaded at www.ujenzibora.com with full acknowledgement of the Architect.
We are excited about our project in Kenya, which we plan to implement in the next 3 Months. We are looking for a solution for a first - time home owner interested in a design that can easily be built but looks elegant. The land is virgin land with no existing structures.
We have attached images of some building blocks we intend to use made using concrete. However, the facade can be plastered or cladded with slates or as per your proposals.
We have tried to summarize all the design constraints in a single image to help you visualise our vision. We plan to set up similar contest in the near future and look forward to doing better Design Briefs.
