The Kenya House concept was borrowed from the Elmolo community. The Elmolo are the smallest ethnic group in Kenya living on the southeastern shore of Lake Turkana. The woven rim around the top of the house is used to increase the stability of the thatch in the super windy region the Elmolo occupy.
The house also features 4 doors inspired by the hand carved, wooden Swahili heritage doors of Lamu Island.
The landscape featured here is the Lake Turkana Basin, the Cradle of all Humankind!
