Inspired by her time working in India, architect Clare Kennedy has based her design & practice around one Gandhi principle, build with materials in a Five Mile Radius. It’s led her to seek out salvaged materials like leftover concrete and rotten power poles, and alongside a collective of like minded designers, carpenters, and makers they’ve developed zero-footprint product lines and practical architect and design solutions that keep waste out of landfill. Developing new ways to build our homes, and the things that fill them, more sustainably; for everything from individual homes, to cafes, breweries and skyscrapers.
