Phoenix, Mauritius

The building is the Indian Ocean headquarters of the Structural and Civil Engineers firm GIBB (Mauritius) Ltd.  Formed by Sir Alexander Gibb, the practice has grown from its Mauritian beginnings to a regional office serving the surrounding islands of the Indian Ocean and employs over 120 people.

The building is square in plan with four corner offices acting as towers. The roof is clad in natural timber shingles. Bronze aluminium fenestration is set into large natural timber frames with copper cladding.

Upon entering the building the visitor is welcomed by a top lit planted courtyard around which the offices are planned and which acts as the main circulation of the building and informal meeting space.
