ARIJIJU
TUCKED INTO THE BORANA CONSERVANCY, KENYA, THIS PRIVATE RESIDENCE BLENDS IN SEAMLESSLY TO ITS LANDSCAPE.
DETAILS

Arranged around an open central courtyard, the arched colonnade surround is a nostalgic threshold between the inside and outside spaces, partly being sculpted into its surroundings.

Combining contemporary re-interpreted elements such as large Crittall glazing with Swahili curves, the design becomes reminiscent of its surrounding context. Landscaped roofs have a dual purpose of cooling the building in the Kenyan climate as well as creating a minimally invasive footprint on the environment.
