improving the quality of life and the physical and emotional health of those who live there.


This strategy is used to promote social participation in low-budget projects. The use of panels makes it easier for inexperienced people to participate. The house consists of the roof, walls and a solid bamboo structure. 


A model house that has been optimized for rapid construction, the parts are prefabricated as wooden frame panels covered with sliced bamboo previously treated in a solution of boric acid, borax and copper sulfate. The houses measure 4.8 meters wide by 9 meters deep, with a usable area of ​​43.20 m2 and have two bedrooms, living/dining room, kitchen, bathroom and covered patio.
