Buildings in non-urban Kenya

Temporary and semi-permanent structures

The building types and also in non-urban South africa are significantly affected by the region and conventional culture of individuals residing in a specific province. For instance:

The Maasai and Samburu communities build short-term sheds called ‘Manyattas’ to match their pastoralist lifestyle. These are created from branches tied together by dry tree-bark or post to create surfaces with thatched rooftops.

The Kalenjin group build semi-permanent sheds using branches and posts signed up with together using claws. Mud or clay-based is applied on the branches to create surfaces and the floor while the top is created of long lawn or reeds.

Seaside individuals such as the Mijikenda create homes from grape leaves famously known as Makuti houses

The Kikuyu, on the other hand, use wood for the surfaces and metal linens for the top.

Permanent structures

Temporary components are passing away off and being changed by long lasting homes created of rocks and mortar.

For those who cannot afford rocks and mortar, stones are created by combining clay-based with sand, hay, stone, tangible and lime, and then formed into prevents that are either air-dried with fire or dry in a kiln. The stones are used for surfaces and streets.

Interestingly, stones are finding their way into towns as designers seek to build cost-effective real estate for city residents.

The few long lasting components in non-urban places have identical styles due to from the components used and lack of sufficient skills by local employees. Most of these homes have:

L, T, U and I formed designs

Several rooms and an income space area (sitting room)

Washrooms and kitchen often designed in separate locations from the main house

Commercial components are simply designed as plain vacant places with no design and design taken into account.
