Jennifer Margell creative designer came up with this wonderful idea of creating these modular homes for the people in Nairobi, Kenya. House design created by Jennifer Margell does not require a great deal of resources and the materials used are recycled. The hollow plastic walls are filled with mud on site for insulation and parts of it are made from recycled frosted panels. Called Makao (Swahili for home), each house can be customized and configured according to individual needs. The roofs of the house design collect and filter gray water; the roof panels also open to release heat. It also completed with modern doors.
An optional bathroom (with a self-composting toilet) and kitchen module with modern doors can be added to the home. It’s been designed in such a way that the bathroom is on the inside space and an open kitchen wraps around the outer wall. The water storage tank is placed behind the bathroom, and keeps the utilities in one central area.
Over all a very well thought out plan that do a lot of good for the under-privileged community. (more…)
