Wumawimbi diving and fishing village hotel

Pemba (Tanzania) , 1997

The project proposes the establishment of a tourist village along Vumawimbi beach in the isle of Pemba (Zanzibar). Its receptive capacity will be of 332 persons. The project consist of common buiding for the sevices and 43 bungalows of three different types and 4 two-storey buildings. The walls of the bungalows are pertly plastered, partly covered with stone, as shown in the drawings. Frames and bannisters will be in natural wood and the main door of each unit will be in carved wood in the traditional local style. Roofs in makuti moreover think that the beauty of vumawimby beach and of Ngezi forest should not be corrupted by using roof tiles or any other covering system not commonly used in the area. The common service building are located orthogonal to the beach, so that both these and the bungalows can always refer to the sea nearby.
