Our mission is to bring you a carefully curated selection of the best architecture, design, interiors projects and building products from Africa. Core to our mission is changing the African built environment for the better by providing inspiration, knowledge and developing online tools to help and inspire architects to do their jobs better and to distribute this across the Yakha community of architects, designers, researchers, manufacturers and retailers.
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 planners, as well as for designers and manufacturers.
