House Wessels is situated on the coast in Tofo, Mozambique. An interesting design challenge was intergrating the PV panels into the traditional Mocambican Makuti thatch 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.
