Audrey Dumée-Duval, a student doing her Masters in Architecture at ENSA Nantes-Maurice, completed an ambitious and new type of housing project to be implemented in Mauritius. She was supported by two architects: Maïti Chagny, architect who specialized in social housing and participative approach, as well as a consultant for UN Habitat based in Mauritius; and Nicolas Paturau a renowned architect based in the region, also sensitive and involved in local projects with a social impact.
Five beautiful houses have been built on land located in Cité EDC, Black River. The five families living in these homes are 19 people aged from 7 to 60 years old and the land belongs to them. Each house has a bathroom and a kitchen.Houses were previously made of corrugated iron sheets and asbestos and all inhabitants shared only two toilets. The families were completely involved in building their homes and contributed financially.
