To Design a Mixed Typology Township which includes apartment blocks, Stand Alone Villas and A Vernacular Resort.

Concept – Our Design for the mixed typology township focused on the Views to the Ocean. Tanzania being a Humid place, it was of paramount importance to ensure we can achieve the optimum Comfort Zone. This was done by controlling the Temperature and Humidity within the Structures using Heat gain analysis and design experiments.

Core Design Concept


Climate of a region plays a very important role in our designs. Weather and climate are primary factors that affect any region and hence, are important to design spaces that have better indoor thermal conditions.


The culture of a region is another key determinant of our architectural designs. It is the way people live and function in a city or space that defines the use and style of how the space should look and feel like.


Critical Regionalism' or context is the process of design which accommodates climatic and social factors of the region where the building is to be constructed. The overall context of what surrounds the structure to be built.
