“Riverhouse” – Nairobi, Kenya
HM Design is currently the Design Team Leader, Architect and Landscape Architect for the 8,000 square feet house and providing full services – from concept to implementation. The local Consultant team is led by Sketch Studio. The post-modern building concept is simple – juxtaposition of three rectangles. However in its simplicity, is its complexity! The interior volumes interweave to create both private, semi-private and public spaces and these spaces are connected to a pool, garden and external recreational and resting spaces. The whole project is being designed using vastu shastra and ecodesign (cross-ventilation, alternative energy, rainwater-harvesting, grey water irrigation, environmentally friendly materials, native plants) principles. The house and garden contains 4 bed-rooms, a penthouse floor, gym sauna and massage center, pool, garden recreation gazebo and staff housing (9/94 to present).
