    The thing is As beautiful as you make it now, unless Somalia becomes 100% Stable no NonMogadishans will move in. So i think it'll be a struggling market for a while

    A lot of interesting posts I must say.

    As much as I hate those "Hansel and Gretel's house" lookalike houses back home; I would pick them any day over the ones the ottomans build or the Zanzibari inspired ones. We just need to figure how to make the hideous colors work & look harmonious. As someone already mentioned, Somalis do love their rainbow colors after all.

    As for interior design, aqal soomali & hido iyo dhaqan could work as great inspirations. The obsession with fadhi-carbeed & heavy curtains that blacks out everything need to stop.

    This is one of my favorite twitter accounts on interior designs:

    Berbera should of been given Turkish contractors and builders, the ottoman architecture there would be beautiful if it was renovated.

    Buildofy is the most underrated architecture channel on YouTube.

    These are all Indian builders doing incredible homes and mid-rise projects throughout India.

    Thanks bro, as an architect this is my passion and insha'Allah will bring it back home.

    The construction / architecture companies in Somaliland charge heavily inflated prices my goal is to design & build people's dream cheaply but if the highest quality by minimising operational cost

    Nice! I've always been fascinated by houses carved out of hills and mountains. With the correct design, you wouldn't need an AC because of the earth's natural temp regulation. This is what I'd like to see and it's perfect for Jigjiga's green hills. I'd have to find a way to stop the goats and cattle from eating my roof though :patrice:

    Adobe houses are ideal for the hot climate of Somalia. They are cool in the heat and minimise the need for AC. The material , which is basically mud, is also cheap and abundant.

    The origin of the word Adobe may interest you.

    The English borrowed it from the Spanish word adobe, while the Spanish borrowed it from the Arabic Attob. The Arabs it borrowed it from the Coptic Tobe hwhich is ultimately from the ancient Egyptian word for mud: Dobe.

    The Somali word for mud is of course, Dhoobo or Dhoobe depending on your accent.


    Now ain't that as clear as mud!
