For a site with limited outdoor space and limited access to the main road, we suggested row houses, a fairly new typology in Kampala. The final design includes a series of four offset two-story houses, each with a semi-private front and back yard, as well as shared parking and utilities.
The houses feature a modern aesthetic with an open plan. Louvres and facade overhangs provide sun shading. A parapet roof, flat in appearance, hides a gently sloping roof that collects water in the back and stores it in an underground system.
The building also features a hybrid solar system.
