The client for this project is a family of four who have lived for a number of years in the USA where they were absolutely charmed by the Tudor style. Back home to Kenya, they wished to build their home. Working as a team with the architects, we created an American Tudor style house in the suburbs of Nairobi. It is a two storey house that is welcoming. The key word for this project was “light”. The glass wall at the back brings the natural light into the living room and the dining room. While in the entrance hall, a “mushrabiyyah” with hidden electrical light is a master piece along with the stately staircase.
Light, elegant, very comfortable furniture were chosen to match the white walls and to contrast with the dark African wooden floors.
