Low Cost Housing based on concrete panel prefabrication
Dar es Salaam, 2012 -


Housing concept to contribute to the enormous need for affordable urban housing in Tanzania. To meet the cost requirements at a high standard of quality, the floor area per unit was radically reduced in an extremely efficent plan. Large private „Sky Gardens“ which are cut into the building as voids combine the tradition of performing many chores outside with the technical need for simple, natural ventilation.
Being scalable in size, approximately 40 units will be implemented as a pilot project for hospital staff housing.
