In partnership with the GBCSA, the My Clean Green Home design competition called for professionals and students to develop a home that demonstrates sustainable living in action. The Mahali Hub, the winning design from Team Mahali, is an innovative, modular ‘house in a box’ covered by an overarching tree-like structure made from upcycled and locally available materials. The design for the net zero carbon home incorporates solar power generation, energy efficient appliances, passive cooling, rainwater harvesting and an edible food garden.
