The concept was derived from the successful completion of the adjacent Norfolk Towers. Both projects are owned by the same client being the first scheme in Nairobi to plan deluxe apartments into an integrated community with offices objectively to attract high income tenants.
The brick facing was used to give a high quality appearance and a maintenance-free finish in sympathy with the neighboring Norfolk Towers. The project was completed in 1985.
Diani Reef Hotel
The building is set on a high coral cliff overlooking one of the most beautiful white sand beaches in Kenya located 20km south of Mombasa. The brief and the inspiration of the beautiful topography have resulted in a grander, more formal building eminently distinguishable from the prevalent Makuti style hotels in the area. The design has a coordinating theme of white Swahili style arched openings set off by red clay grills and dark mvuli screens. The project was completed in 1989.
