Anglo Mauritius
Port Louis, Mauritius

Anglo Mauritius Assurance Society owns one of the largest plots of land at the heart of Port Louis. A master planning study was carried out in an effort to revive the capital city Port Louis at a time when decentralization was the preferred option. The master plan proposed a 36-storey double skin glass tower as the tallest building in Mauritius. It contained shopping on the lower floors, offices in a stacked atria arrangement and a panoramic restaurant on a double volume top floor. The 8-storey Anglo Mauritius House is proposed to be converted into a business hotel, a wellness centre, with a glass bottom pool overlooking an 8-storey atrium fully glazed on two sides against the existing facade enclosing a café on ground floor. The new complex of three buildings including the Swan Group Centre is sustained by a multi-storey car park for 500 cars.
