This research examines the ability to promote the African culture by coming up with cultural inspired sustainable design spaces. Recommended approaches include using of locally available materials and at the same time achieving the concept of customer satisfaction, loyalty and health.

Therefore, the definition sustainability is viewed by the researcher as a technical term in the face of problem solution. Knowing what kind of relationship, we want to have with the global and local environment is the first consideration. It is important to address on how to achieve this relationship.
