Kilifi, Kenya

Sirai Beach

Operator: Sirai Beach

Rooted on a cliff at Kilifi, Sirai Beach house is a private residence designed around a series of inter-leading courtyards, anchored around ancient Baobab trees. The hierarchy of spaces are arranged to allow for uninterrupted and multiple views of the Kenyan coast and Indian Ocean.

The material choices were informed from the local vernacular use of Coral stone, Lamu plaster, and Makuti thatch. The large openable covered verandas cater for lounge space and allow for the cooling sea breeze to flow through and reach all areas.
