You may remember Urko Sanchez from our piece on their Red Pepper House. We’ve come across yet another intriguing piece of design from their portfolio- The Tudor Apartments in Mombasa, Kenya.
Heres their description,
Tudor Apartments is an intimate project of 14 apartments in Tudor Creek-Mombasa. Enveloped in a mashrabiya structural shell, the building is distinctive in its creative design, ensuring privacy and optimizing natural ventilation and lighting. We took the challenge of translating our contemporary Swahili style to a groundbreaking high-rise structure where the apartments benefit from the experience of outdoor living, contact with nature and the integration of the surroundings into each private home.
The award winning design ( AAK-Awards of Excellence in Architecture: Best Residential Project, 2013-Honorable Mention) covers 4000sqm and makes excellent use of the slope on the site to create both vista and amenity for the residents.
