Africa faces a real and immediate need for affordable homes. Like many of the continent’s cities, the Ugandan capital is growing fast. (According to the Kampala City Council Authority, the current rate is 5.6%.) Our project aims to address the city’s housing crisis by targeting the substantial local population with a small, yet stable income — a group that has historically had limited access to high-quality housing.

Our project comprises a series of one-story semidetached houses placed according to the site’s sloping topography, with a road network design that maximizes buildable area. We propose the use of solar energy, water-harvesting systems, and other sustainable design approaches.
