A bakery for the Emtongeni Community Centre in Zandspruit, Johannesburg

Bread building

Involving and empowering the community of Zandspruit 

​The project was done in association with Bread Companions and Sesego Cares for the Emtongeni Community Center in Zandspruit. The aim of the project was to empower community members with a business opportunity by providing them with a sustainable bakery.

In order to educate the community on alternative construction methods and to create a greater sense of ownership, the Zandspruit community was involved in the construction process. A bottle brick wall was therefore incorporated into the design, also acting as a security device. Community members were responsible for the collection of bottles and the production of the bottle bricks.

Within a very limited budget, the building was designed from lightweight materials based on the principals of enhanced natural light and ventilation.
