335 Rhapta is a bungalow, originally built in 1967, that has been renovated to modern standards, relying on natural lighting, natural ventilation, solar PV powered energy needs, LED lighting, rainwater harvesting, low-flow plumbing fittings, and re-use of existing materials wherever viable. The project was developed by Urban Nirvana, a local property developer in Kenya.
Urban Nirvana’s ethos is to build and renovate to a minimum EDGE standard wherever viable to do so, especially in light of the necessity for energy and water resilience in Kenya, and the lack of quality, sustainable materials for construction in the market.
335 Rhapta has received a Final EDGE Advanced Certification from Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI).
