The making of an architectural marvel that is African Heritage House

What you need to know:

  • The floors, walls, windows and ceilings are a replica of Swahili architecture and its usage of locally available materials such as mazeras stone slabs for the floors, while the mangrove poles on the ceiling make it as African as it can be.

Donovan did not have a dream house until he saw the pre-colonial African mud hut.
