Location: Kiwengwa, Zanzibar North, Tanzania

Project Work Status: Ongoing Projects

The fractional ownership resort on the spice capital, Zanzibar, covered in local flora and fauna.. also frames a spectacular reef views where the waves break...

The main objectives are to:
Offer an authentic experience of the island
Seamless integration with minimal impact on existing geography
Saving on energy use in terms of energy spent during and after construction Encourage the use of local materials and methods for construction provide the local population with work during construction, landscape stages as well as staff to run the entire development after completion.

SITE STRATEGIES
The fundamental nature of water is extended by locating pools at the natural lowest parts of the property. A giant tidal pool is introduced where the coosta erosion of coral is at the highest to protect the coastline from receding further.

The roofs will be shaded by a canopy of fishnets and growing creepers making most part of the development effortlessly integrate with the botanical surrounds.

The physicality of the site remains unchanged as a simple rectangular plinth will be constructed on site. Pre -worked wood from the workshop is shipped to site from the mainland. To restrain construction costs, gabion walls of coral an one side connect the inside and the outside.
This echoes waves of green that converge to the shore.
