Gorgeous Green House 

Gorgeous Green House – Description from Afrisam.

A client driven green research project, The Gorgeous Green House encapsulates all green and eco gadgetry there is within the market. This project shows just how strong the client’s voice was with decision making on a sustainable level. Special thought, consideration and research by the client allowed the design of the house to incorporate many sustainable features from roof top gardens, green walls, evaporative cooling ponds, water harvesting, storage and recycling, and solar energy to name a few.

Not to mention the choice of sustainable and environmentally friendly materials from bamboo, recycled carpets and kitchen countertops. The house also boasts an incredibly integrated eco-system of bee hives, kitchens, veggie garden and natural swimming pool with fish all which attract over 40 species of birds, insects and wildlife to the property. This house is the ‘poster-child’ for a sustainable green living.
