villa design

Cape Town-based Craft of Architecture (COA) designed Suluwilo Villa, a getaway retreat located in Vamizi island in Mozambique. This group of boat-shaped shelters has steeped roofs withstanding strong winds from the sea. Each house has thatched roofing and walls made from local sustainable materials like mud and water that have each room cool and abound with fresh air. The living space formed by the roof is a study with stunning views of the sea, while at a higher level was provided a bridge from the master suite to a private bathroom.
