Design. Build. Better.

BuildX Studio envisions a world made for people and planet by creating the buildings of a radically better tomorrow.


We develop exceptional design solution which are founded on human-centred principles and prioritise environmental performance, functionality and local resources.


We lead the way in trusted, transparent and efficient construction. We work with local people and materials, creating high quality and affordable buildings.


We pioneer low carbon solutions in design and construction. We see a critical role for bio-based materials and have identified mass timber as the most promising opportunity for eliminating carbon in buildings on a global scale. Find out more about why building with wood is the answer to the rapidly growing housing needs in the region: BuildX LT initiative.


In 2020, we set out on an ambitious journey to develop an affordable housing product, which aims to be an exemplar in affordability, sustainability, and inclusivity. Find out more about Zima Homes, one of the first affordable housing projects in Kenya to achieve EDGE green building certification.


We develop innovative building solutions that go beyond business solutions to maximise impact. We have set audacious impact goals towards creating buildings that are net zero carbon, more inclusively designed, and enhance the quality of life and wellbeing of building users. We have started tracking and publishing our progress. Find out more about our Impact model.
