Architecture & Interior design

The Swahili design of Mr. Kahawa Restaurant and Lofts is a mixture of Arabian influences from the island, with a modern Mediterranean feel. The use of local building methodes, materials and finishing Neru – coloured concrete – make it unique.

The architecture focuses on the user – user centered design – and tries to give the user the right surrounding, each moment of the day. The sun is dictating a lot of the decisions. Wake up with the sun, hide from the sun when having a lunch or enjoy the sun to get a tan, with the amazing views over the ocean, even when having a shower or laying on the bed.

The interior design is a mix of local the fabrics kitenge, dhow woodwork – made from old local sailing boats – and carved woodwork for some of the furnitures.
