PROJECT 5: TOURIST TERMINAL/INFORMATIONAL CENTRE, LOCAL CASE STUDY : RED PEPPER HOUSE, LAMU.

Specifications
-The house was to be designed in zones that could be occupied
by the whole family or reduced to one when he was alone.
-Fernando wanted to have one acre of plot secluded for is
friend, Rafa, where a private residence would eventually be
designed for him too.
- Fernando also had a knee problem, which meant that the
house would have to be designed on one floor.
-Eventually Fernando would like to profit from a design where
parts of the house could be rented out yet still maintain a barrier
of privacy between the occupiers and himself.
These needs made necessary to revisit the Swahili traditional
catalogue of solutions to give response to very specific demands.

Challenge and Response
The challenge is to give response to very specific requests not
specifically related to the local tradition and to do it using the
local construction systems, workmanship, and sense of space,
looking towards the future yet having one leg grounded in the
past.
Gaining knowledge from local Lamu construction, the project will
be approached in a similar way and, paying great respect to the
surrounding environment.
The house is to be integrated with the history and nature of the
island composing a dialogue of organic architecture.
