Tamarin, Mauritius

The brief was to develop housing on a beachfront site at Tamarin on the west coast in one of the hottest parts of Mauritius. The climate makes external living possible. The site contains mature trees and the concept is site sensitive. A single storey development is proposed to preserve privacy. Individual spaces are detached from each other and intertwine around the trees. An array of gardens and reflective pools create a continuous inside-outside living experience.
