"This phenomenon has its pro’s and con’s, however, this has not stopped a few people who are now living in the city from developing their parent’s house or building their own contemporary houses in the rural areas.
"This goes back to affordability, due to this there has been a shift over the years in the architectural landscape in villages, where one’s neighbour lives in a shack and the other in a ‘luxurious’ Tuscany style house," shared Kana Afrika founders Karabo Malope and Nomalanga Mahlangu.

They also added that this transition might not necessarily fit inside the commonly understood definition of ‘luxury’ but development is happening.

They shared that there is still an enormous gap in the development of rural areas vs urban areas in South Africa but the transition of the building typology is also quite prevalent in some rural areas.
