INCORPORATION OF RENEWABLE MATERIALS IN AFRICAN CONTEMPORARAY DESIGN OF CONVENT GARDEN HOUSE

ABSTRACT
The Convent Garden House was started in the 2006 and it is a quiet and serene place for people to go and relax away from the
hustle and bustle of the city life. There is a massive rise of guest houses in the city of Nairobi since then. In this day and age
due to the degradation of the environment there is global warming. People are turning to green and sustainable solutions as a
way of living to preserve the earth. Designers have a mandate to also come up with sustainable solutions to solve the design
problems that arise.
This study seeks to tackle the topic of renewable materials as a way of designing sustainable environments for people to live in
and at the same time create a beautiful theme of African Contemporary Design in Convent Garden House. Renewable is any
material or energy that can be replenished in full without loss or degradation in quality. Renewable materials hold
environmental appeal in that they are able to replenish themselves readily as needed
