House MSM

RE of No 3 of Farm 737. Chipata. Lusaka. Zambia.

Project Type: ResidentialNew Build

Client: Abdullah Akbar Memon
Program: ResidentialNew Build
Status: Construction – October 2019
Value: R 6 Million (US $330 000)
Area: 1005m²

The project amounted to the company’s first “debut” into the greater Southern African context and was complimented by immediate transition from the concept and design stage development into building implementation.

The requirement was to accommodate three family units within an extended family arrangement. Notions of family privacy, identity & maintaining a non-hierarchical cohesive became defining architectural considerations. In-turn, a key architectural undertaking was the formulation of a developing housing structure, which “spoke” the same aesthetic language in its external presentation, while simultaneously allowing for a varied configuration within. A collective linear aesthetic reflects a connected facade, while two south facing central courtyards integrate the three residences providing opportunities for  joint, interactive family socialization / entertainment.

Within the architectural articulation, layers of different forms and varied materiality have been utilized to accentuate different areas and create dynamic planes of interest: rough hewn, green, natural, linear and contemporary, luxuriously comfortable, private and public.
