Watamu is a small town located approximately 100 km north of Mombasa and it is surely a small paradise. The shoreline in the area features white sand beaches and crystal clear water and the Clients plot was directly connected to the beach. The newbuild house can have a wonderful sea view in a neighborhood that is still undeveloped.
I think every architect dreams of a project like this – a paradise environment, stunning views and everywhere turtles running around – (let´s not talk about the snakes though).
The design brief was a 3 bedroom holiday house with an open living area, extended terrace with big pool which blends in beautifully with the environment around it. A use of robust and local materials with natural cooling and ventilation.
