    Tofo, Mozambique

    This is also a totally off the grid. An interesting design challenge was intergrating the PV panels into the traditional Mocambican that roof.

    The walls were done as an insulated panel covered in ply sheathing, with reflective foil insulation to the outside. This is covered by timber cladding on battens creating an open cavity where warm air can rise up behind of the cladding and out of the wall. The client recently informed me that walking in to the house on a day of 30deg outside felt like walking into a cool air-conditioned space.
