The concept of Home means something different round the world. In some places, it is a n apartment during a tall tower and in others it’s a stucco building by alittle road. Whichever option describes your life best, a home should be a dignified place that gives for your needs and supports your future.

The question becomes, why do so few homes do this? Especially in developing communities round the world. How can design be a light-weight for a far better life?
