LOW COST HOUSING PROJECT IN SIERRA LEONE

Posted on 15th March 2017

MEB Design director Mark Eddison traveled to Sierra Leone in the last week of February with the charity Home Leone who are leading a project to develop low cost housing near the capital city of Freetown. The purpose of the trip was to plan and layout a new primary and middle school and follows on from a previous visit by Mark in September 2015. Below you can see a selection of photos from Mark’s trip.
