Nubian Vault Trainings
Thiès, Senegal

In partnership with Association la Voûte Nubienne - - Chiwarà is engaged in triggering the emergence of a socially and environmentally sustainable construction market in the Sahel.


The Nubian Vault (NV) technical concept is an ancestral architectural process that uses neither wood, which has become rare, nor sheet metal, which is expensive and uncomfortable. Mainly made of raw earth, a widely available material, the Nubian Vault is an adapted housing solution even in urban areas.
The program aims at formalizing this sustainable construction concept applying it to middle-class housing projects that will serve as exemples for the diffusion of a sustainable construction sector in Senegal.
