ABOUT

UBU PROVIDES INNOVATION AROUND THE HOUSING CHALLENGES THAT FACE THE PEOPLE OF CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA, WITH A STRONG FOCUS ON AN INFORMAL SETTLEMENT COMMUNITY IN PHILIPPI EAST, CALLED SWEET HOME FARM.

WE WORK WITH LOCAL COMMUNITIES TO CREATE HOUSING SOLUTIONS USING PROCESSES AND SELF-BUILD TECHNOLOGIES TRIED AND TESTED BY THE UBU TEAM AND COMMUNITIES THEY WORK ALONGSIDE.

UBU Facilitate aids in the process that leads to community led participation and design, and UBU Build activates the building using sustainable and appropriate materials.
