The project involves the design of a mixed use development In Mpirigwa village, Mityana district. The project focuses mainly on the design of low income and climate optimised dwellings with innovative housing qualities. With a critical approach to sustainability, the project focuses profoundly on social sustainability thereby engaging its users besides the usual sustainable aspects. The site is located in a rural setting therefore emphasis has been placed on the development of dwellings that integrate the requirements of a rural quality user profile .The project has therefore foreseen the development of different types of attractive dwellings to fit the specific user profile as a means to achieve the main goal of the project. The dwellings are designed according to design parameters that define an ideal home, not forgetting the immediate neighborhood context. The project also incorporates commercial development into the design as a means to enhance the relationship between the design and its vicinity. Further more, in order to enhance the lives of the user profile, the project integrates a farming area onto the proposed site which on the other hand defines identity of the village in relation to one of the many economic activities that are carried out in that village.
