Nokwezi’s RDP house in Philippi was falling apart, so instead of trying to repair it, OPEN CITY designed and built a new house. The challenge with a narrow, long site was to provide good natural lighting and ventilation to every room.  Our aim was to explore a typology that would allow Nokhwezi to house her own family of six, as well as accommodate tenants in order to boost her monthly income.
