La Mivoie
Black River, Mauritius

The site which is on the slope of Tamarin Mountain has spectacular views stretching from Le Morne and the salt pans of La Preneuse to Flic en Flac.  The master plan proposes a sustainable development comprising of an office park and shopping centre, high density living in close proximity to the shops and offices and low density living on large individual plots on high ground. 

To keep unity and identity, and for the first time in Mauritius, the houses would have had to be built within strict rules governing materials, roofs, colours, height and density.  The higher slopes of the mountain was reserved for a high class apartment building with edge pools, stepped balconies and overhanging plants blending the building into the landscape.
