Ghanaian Earth Construction specialists, Hive Earth in partnership with Accra-based Orthner Orthner & Associates have unveiled Pata 4 two, an affordable 3 bedroom home with a price tag of $15,000 (N 5 400 000).
Pata4two follows OOA’s philosophy of “small, simple, local”. The sustainable home features 3 bedrooms, a storage room as well as an outdoor kitchen and is built with natural, local materials including Rammed Earth walls, wood and bamboo. The design of the home takes cross ventilation into consideration with shading elements in tandem with passive solar design principles, all of which are geared toward low energy and water consumption.
The first prototype of the Pata4two concept is currently under construction and we look forward to seeing how the final build comes together. To stay updated on the progress of the project you can follow both Hive Earth and OOA on facebook.
