Castle Bruce, Dominica, West Indies

Kwanari Ecolodge is located on a bay a few kilometers north of Castle Bruce Village – eastern part of the Island of Dominica and facing the Atlantic Ocean.

HM Design is the lead Consultant, concept architect and landscape architect for an ecolodge in the eastern part of the Commonwealth of Dominica. It is the first planned and designed ecolodge in Dominica and there are many benefits to the neighboring native Kalinago people. HM Design is introducing a whole new type of Architecture in the Caribbean called “Forest Caribbean”. HM Design and their local team of consultants (including Architect of Record) are providing full services including construction supervision. The lodge was to open in the summer of 2018 but was partly destroyed by Hurricane Maria. The master plan includes an ecolodge and wellness center, forest and ocean cabins, tree house, swimming pool, library and trails.
