My Clean Green Home design competition:

The winners have been announced

In collaboration with the Green Building Council of South Africa, we are delighted to announce the winner of My Clean Green Home. Congratulations Team Mahali. Team Mahali’s  innovative design for a net zero carbon home is inspired by the typical African tradition of community formal and informal gatherings under an expansive tree canopy. The design tries to recreate the communal space by creating a courtyard-like space between two more private spaces for sleeping and living. 







First runner up, 2AD Space also had a great proposal with a small, high density unit that made use of an extensive roof area to take advantage of solar energy. The second runner up, was Team Panache, with a well-conceptualised layout that integrates sustainability features.


These designs were selected from 13 high quality and innovative submissions that were adjudicated by an independent panel of judges made up of architects, urban designers, property management and sustainability professionals.


We would like to thank the following individuals and their respective organisations for the role they played in the success of the My Clean Green Home competition:


Thank you to all those who submitted expressions of interest and designs. We hope that the competition has sparked a long-term interest in net zero carbon design and development and look forward to Cape Town residents experiencing the Mahali Hub, a one-of-a-kind home at the physical event in early 2021.
