INTRODUCTION
The Diamond house plan is inspired by the Botswana Diamonds and was designed by www.a4architect.com to offer the most efficient housing solutions to the people of Haiti after the 2010 earthquake.
The Diamond House is made of materials readily available in every hardware shop in Kenya. The efficiency is attained through unique architectural design and construction technology.

The walls are made of the usual masonry quarry stone or interlocking stabilized soil blocks,roofs made of the usual iron sheets, doors from the usual wood door Kenyan manufacturers and window frames from the usual aluminum/Louvre systems.

As the family size grows, the house also grows concurrently.
This architectural design aids greatly in planning for the future.
The beauty about this design is the fact that one can start with the low price 1 bedroomed house. After a period of time as the space need increases, the 2 bedroomed unit is added then the 3 and 4 bedrooms consecutively.

The use of Structural Insulated Panel technology assists in that with these panels, its very easy to add extra rooms to the building. SIP houses are light weight so there will be no settlement cracks as witnessed in the normal masonry house types whenever new additions are extended from the main house.
With the normal masonry stone houses, people are forced to buy larger houses-3 bedroomed houses-yet maybe they only require to use just 1 or 2 bedrooms.
This way, they are forced to buy and pay for space that they are not using.
In this design, the occupant pays for the exact space that they require in that if the occupant only requires just 1 bedroom for the time being, that’s the only space they pay for.
