HOME, SUS­TAIN­ABLE HOME

Toyota Connect/Lexus Life - - ECO TRENDS -

Load-shed­ding, wa­ter short­ages... it’s easy to un­der­stand the ap­peal of go­ing off-grid. Um­nyama Ikhaya has made it easy to do just that by sup­ply­ing trans­portable pod homes that can be lo­cated on any level piece of ground mea­sur­ing 50m². The homes (or garages, schools, shops – what­ever, re­ally) are man­u­fac­tured from pre-fab­ri­cated mod­u­lar blocks in just 28 days and – here’s the clincher – al­low res­i­dents to bid a fond, fi­nal farewell to the grid by in­te­grat­ing gas, wind, so­lar, wa­ter­less toi­lets, a green grow­ing façade, rain­wa­ter har­vest­ing sys­tem, in­verter and so­lar pumps.
