Kawe Apartments|Proposed

Designers: http://spacelab.co.uk/projects/devel...-dar-es-salaam
Kawe Dar-es-salaam

Continuing our pioneering work in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, Spacelab has designed this residential development of 40 apartments (16 two-bedroom and 24 three-bedroom), aimed at families. Comprising five buildings, the scheme centres on a communal leisure courtyard, which acts like a town square, with a swimming pool, gymnasium and tennis court. All apartments feature generous balconies, with living rooms and bedrooms arranged in a linear way, so that they all have access to this outdoor space. Penthouses feature larger terraces, and the buildings are staggered in height along the sloping site to maximise sea views for all.

I think local architects/consultants should have a blog/forum or portal that can exchange ideas,see their projects if are sustainable,economical,environmental green,futuristic or just plain boring concrete jungle!

That was the intention for :

I'm catching up after long and it seems to me that Tanzanian architects/designers really need to come to a single forum, like the one above. This opens them up to criticism not only from neighbouring/African countries, but the world over. How do we encourage this ?

exactly

People are very gurded with their privacy so they might like the FB page but will be reluctant to post anything

what SSC offers is the anonymity.

I suggest you come more often here...FB won't do justice...as you can see since last time you logged in, there are more Tanzanian members. Soon you may see wale wakala wa wasanifu wa majengo pale pamba/tetex house inside here.

Of course I love this forum. You guys are the source of info which I use to publish to the "outside" world. However, I am fed up with the Kenyan/Tanzanian non-sense in this forum. I respect both critical and patriotic views and hence needed more Tanzanian architechts to expose themself to "criticism" from world over. That would be a transparent thing, less biased (kenya/tz) and a challenge to improve designs.

Would also help to form collaboration, companies can meet each other, people can advertise properties etc etc.. u get the idea. I will put the renders out there anyway, may be this will serve as the source of all things East African.. our fights and our heritage.

Mwinyi, take it easy with the criticisms.. Perhaps start sharing your own designs or ur version of say, Uhuru Heights. How wud u have done it better. I am assuming ur a designer ?
Tanzanians, keep up the patriotic spirit :-) .. Peace!

+10000000, I prefer someone who will critisize and at the same time say how he wish the thing should look like, and point out the strenght and weakness, rather than ugly this ugly that IMO

Well....I was supposed to get a flat at VIVA TOWER but as it is, im getting fed up with the speed and I have two friends who managed to get flats in UHURU HEIGHTS

Wanna know what put me off UHURU HEIGHTS? Believe me or not it was those pictures on the holdings overlooking Peugeot and Raha tower.

They looked cheap without a class whatsoever...the bowling alleys etc

That said, since VIVA was too expensive I recommended UHURU to a friend of mine.

Now do I like the building? well....its unfinished so will reserve my comments for now till I see the end product. Would I move in if I were given a chance absolutely but I would like my apartment to overlook Gymkhana Club.
