Many of us may think of water scarcity solutions as short term solutions, but only a few whom may think of the long term ones. So, in this project, I’ve decided to design an independent house which consists of 4 different approaches to lessen the water scarcity phenomenon and help global warming gain back its original state, even if it’s after 50 years or more.

Collecting reused water from different home usages, then using it to irrigate the garden in the ground floor of the house to grow fruits and vegetables for the occupants and animals. Building materials used are those which are made from mud and non-heat-conductive materials. Solar energy to produce electricity and operate devices.
