The affordable PHP is a model of housing based on the "Face Me I Face You" or "Rooming Houses" concept.

This housing type is found extensively across the country because it is affordable to a large segment of the population.

Households occupy one or two rooms in houses with corridors along the middle, or verandahs to one side, and all the households share communal bathrooms and kitchens, or cook in the corridors or the rooms.

PHP address the critical deficiencies in “rooming housing”

Poor access, natural lighting and ventilation
Central corridor is generally “no-man’s-land”
Poor security and control
Poor sanitation
Lack of privacy
Lack of dignity
