2,500 sf design-build residence in Tema, Ghana made out of 40,000 cement-stabilized compressed laterite earth blocks (CSEB), manufactured on-site with an Auram 3000 press. The project elevates a ground courtyard condition to upstairs roof terrace and exploits passive cooling via open tread hardwood staircase stack, operable wood louver shutters in place of glass windows and orientation to winds off the Gulf of Guinea.
