A building product isn’t something that exists in isolation. At Yakha, we believe that the relation between the building product, it’s regional context and the architectural space to which it’s applied is fundamental to a successful project. That’s why we’re working on linking African architectural projects with the furnishings, materials and fittings that have been used in their execution, resulting in a completely new information resource for African architects and contractors, as well as for designers and manufacturers.
