Silver Sands, Kunduchi Beach, Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania
2003 – Feasibility
Site Area: 240,000 m2
Client: Galgo Servises Ltd
Design Architect: Photiou Architects
Set within 20 minutes from Dar Es Salaam this luxury resort at Kunduchi Beach offers a refreshingly informal resort with superb facilities.
We were commissioned to design a long term master plan to turn the existing Silver Sands Hotel and the adjoining land which was partly owned by Dar-Es Salaam University into an exclusive beach resort.
Sports facilities on the west part of the site were provided for the university and wider community.
Thatched beach pavilions and bungalows line the white sand beach, while water bungalows are built on stilts over the lagoon.
From their thatched roofs and timber latticework to the beautiful white stone walls all the architectural details will be constructed using local craftsmen using indigenous materials and techniques to reflect a true sense of Tanzania.
