I wish more if not all east African cities had Swahili themed architecture. It would have given them a sense of Identity like what Arab and European cities have. Here are pics of two hotels in Nairobi which incorporated this and they came out amazing, notice the curved windows, protruding porticos but shorter than the main structure like in most Lamu buildings and the wedge like dark colored roofs resembling makuti roofs
