About Us

We are a socially and environmentally conscious team with the goal of transforming the construction industry, enabling a circular economy and offering healthier building materials for the whole world.

From Togo to the World

Dr. Gnanli Landrou, one of two founders of Oxara, grew up in Togo and made it his goal to develop a building material that enables affordable, save and comfortable housing in Africa and beyond.
Together with Dr. Thibault Demoulin, Oxara was founded in 2019, after the two became friends and coworkers during their PHD's at ETH Zurich.
Since then the Oxara family has grown to over ten people working towards the ambitious goal of transforming the global construction industry.
