OCEAN VIEW | The urban planning of Fumba Town is
characterized by a gradual increase of building height
and density once moving away from the ocean front. The
Mwangani apartment buildings are part of this area a bit
more distanced from the water line. With four to six stories
the Mwangani buildings contribute to an increased urban
density while providing for ample green and parking space
on ground floor. The increased building height allows for
magnificent views over Fumba Town towards the ocean,
especially for the apartments on the higher levels. On the
front portion of the currently over-sized common roof
terraces the integration of sustainable SkyLofts, constructed
in a light-weight timber structure, is projected.
SUSTAINABLE PRIVACY | The Mwangani SkyLofts
are designed as luxurious 1-bedroom apartments. The
integration of the lofts on top of the existing buildings
allows for panoramic ocean views from both the living room
and the bedroom. The vast terraces and green planters in
front of the living spaces create a very private character for
the SkyLofts and the balconies of the apartments below.
Wooden facade features provide permanent sun shading
and elevate the luxurious look and feel of the lofts. Most
kitchens are designed with a small yard and roof lights
over the kitchen and bathroom not only allow for cross
ventilation but also create unique interior atmospheres. The
construction in modern engineered timber further enhances
the interior climate of these extraordinary SkyLofts.
MWANGANI IV SKYLOFT
For the Mwangani VI building an additional pergola has been
added to the penthouse apartments. This pergola enhances the privacy
on the terrac and allows for plant to grow up to create a green and shad-
ed roof garden as an additional amenity for the penthouse apartments.
