The Black Coast Resort

UNGUJA ISLAND, ZANZIBAR

The development is located in Zanzibar, in the northern side of the island. The resort forms part of a wider masterplan which will provide a leisure retreat over a 400-hectare site picturing a popular tourist destination off the coast of East Africa south of the Somali Sea.

The masterplan design is based on the vision of the developer reflecting the coastal fluidity idea, which takes its inspiration from breath-taking cliff retreat. It aims to help guests reconnect with the natural environment.

The development consists of a 5-star hotel with luxury serviced apartments and villas. It has been designed over 10-hectare to mimic the site topography of the slates contours and the forms of the landscape looking over the Indian Ocean. The Hotel floorplates decrease in scale towards the summit, tapering to create a peak-like formation to frame the main entrance. The buildings carve out their own internal and external spaces and dynamic views to the external vistas for visual interest.

The outdoor concept creates a series of different strata, each with its own garden. Landscaping is used extensively as an architectural surface treatment and forms a major part of the development. It allows generous outdoor areas for recreation and social interaction throughout the development.
