Reimagining the housing infrastructure in a remote African village.

Sub-Sahara interstice is a prototype that seeks to generate a pragmatic and scalable urban condition. At the core of this urban condition are a series of interconnected programs, materials and site conditions. These include the orientation of each massing block in relation to the trajectory of the sun, solar heat gain, flow of rain precipitation, local source material (laterite) and courtyards. The first phase of the project is to orient the housing blocks in the trajectory of the sun; thus, reducing solar heat that affects the units.
