Having been presented with 3 much photocopied pieces of paper – one a council drawing showing scale of land, another Google map of Zanzibar showing location and another Google Earth image of the land, we were asked if we were interested in coming up with an overall concept for this property. Never one to shy away from a challenge, we researched Zanzibar and what is on offer and decided to go 360 from this. The result is a modernist mid-century style resort located in a contemporary cubist botanical garden given that botany has had a long history on the islands.
