Pegboard, a collaboration between Latitude Architects and Object 31, is an example of our international humanitarian work and demonstrates creative design under a modest budget. The design emphases neighborhood connectivity, spatial adaptability and ease of expansion.
Pegboard uses local materials with minimally required maintenance such as concrete, corrugated metal, wood, bamboo and Kente cloth. The house is assembled with a kit of lightweight concrete components that can all be poured on site. A corrugated roof is used for contextual reminders. The bamboo and wood elements of the house (screens, shelving, beds, awnings) are handcrafted by local craftsman. Natural ventilation and cooling are utilized with one room wide structures.
