The Golf Estate of Beau Rivage is on a beautiful natural site on the east coast of Mauritius. Several single storey house plans were developed on standard 30x50m plots with a 30m frontage on a golf course. A single storey development was proposed to maintain privacy with no possible overlooking over the neighbour’s boundary wall, continuing the practice’s beliefs in courtyard housing. They are designed in a generous scale and have large 2m roof overhangs. This allows the spaces to remain open for natural ventilation during inclement weather whilst providing ample sun-shading in good weather. Living and private spaces always give out onto small courtyards and pools creating an interplay of ever changing inside-outside living experiences.
A hotel and golf club were also planned next to an existing boat quay at the estuary of a river and under the shade of mature trees. Existing derelict stone structures were intended to be restored and integrated into the new buildings.
