Project Duration: 2000 - 2003

A residence, as an introverted box, a place to entertain and an office, this project was commissioned by a member of parliament to be built in a town, along the banks of lake victoria.

All the spaces and circulation paths are set around a black reflecting pond. The principal window of the house faces the sky. The living room wall is painted with natural light through a skylight, A double height staircase allows for diagonal movement along a Masai Red wall which acts as a gallery for East African Art.
Vertical Afzelia Timber slants, Offer slight glimpses of the water court.
This Timber will over the years, age to an ashen colour. The silence we sought turned into a symphony of light.
