If you wish to send tips regarding work that is not your own, please do. Just use the email address provided below. We receive a lot of submissions weekly so please help us understand your project quickly.

Boring legal stuff

By submitting content you agree to our terms and conditions, which can be reviewed here

We like submissions via email

Please send text and images of your project to one of the following addresses:

Architecture projects: hello@yakha.co

Interior projects: hello@yakha.co

Design and technology projects: hello@yakha.co

How to submit a project

To submit a project for consideration, simply email us a selection of good jpegs (at least 3000 pixels on the shortest sides), some text about the project and links where appropriate. Please have a look at our copyright policy before submitting material. 

If you need to send zipped images or links to filesharing sites, please send a few sample images in your email to give us an idea of your project. Please don’t scrimp on the number of images – the more, the better.

Then what happens?

If we like the look of the project we’ll be in touch. It may take us some time to get back to you. It’s fine to send us the odd gently reminder – we are only human and we do overlook things sometimes.

Meanwhile we’ll add you to our contributors mailing list (a list of people who’ve submitted projects to us or have been published). You’ll therefore receive the occasional email from us.

If you do not want to receive these emails, please make this clear in your submission. It’s fine, we understand. Or you can unsubscribe at any time. For more details of how we use data in relation to newsletters, see our privacy policy.

We like exclusivity

We are more likely to publish projects that are sent to us exclusively. If you are offering us an exclusive, please make this clear in your submissions email.

We like movies

If you have a movie related to your project, send it in! We usually upload submitted movies to our own channels (particularly YouTube and Instagram) rather than embedding from other accounts. We may edit movies but we’ll ask for your permission first.

We like plans, drawings and sketches

Plans, sections and sketches are very popular with our readers, so please include them if you can.

We like to credit everyone

Send us project credits! Especially for the images. We are rarely able to pay for photography but we will happily give credits, links and full copyright details where appropriate. Many photographers happily give us free imagery as publication on yakha is a good way to promote their work and often leads to commissions from other publications. NB you MUST ensure you have the permission of the copyright holder for all material you submit. For more details, see our submissions terms and conditions.

Share, share, share

When we’ve published your project please share like crazy on social media, newsletters, your website and so on. It will help your project get more visits and more attention. Don’t be shy!

Get involved in the comments

Hopefully people will comment on your project in our comments section. Hopefully the comments will be intelligent and constructive. Even if they’re not please get involved by responding, challenging and generally engaging with our audience. See our comments policy for details of how we manage comments.

Armadillo Crèche | Cornell University Sustainable Design

Armadillo Crèche | Cornell University Sustainable Design

Armadillo Crèche is the design for an early childhood development (ECD) center in Johannesburg, South Africa. It accommodates 80 children and houses a teacher-training center. Standing on an elevated site, the ECD center is a beacon for education. To embrace the necessity of a fence, the design likens itself to an armadillo: it curls in on itself, protecting its soft underbelly with a hard shell.
