Lluanda

Luanda Affordable Housing
Location: Luanda, Angola
Sectors: Residential, Sustainable

This project looked at the abject poverty in the outskirt of the Angolan capital where many thousands of families arrive to seeking a living. The project looked at construction techniques and the way in which the home works in this part of the world.

Constructed from adobe bricks with lightweight roof, the curved form is derived from the vernacular round houses found throughout western Africa. A prefabricated kitchen and bathroom pod provides ease of construction and the voids between the neighbouring buildings create personal garden and entrance spaces.
