Client:  EMBASSY OF CANADA
Project:  Official Residence of the Canadian High Commissioner
Location:  Toure Drive, Dar es Salaam
Completion:  2002
Floor Area:  750 m2
Contract Value:  Approx US$ 600,000



This was a major refurbishment and extension of an existing residence on Toure Drive, Dar es Salaam.

Although the existing building is retained in terms of some internal room walls, all of the external facades of the building are new. The main new feature at the front elevation is the deep covered veranda at the ground and first floor. Both look out onto the ocean and are designed to be large enough to cater for official functions. The materials selected for the residence were as natural as possible using timber, stone floor tiles and cut coral stone wall cladding panels at the double height entrance hall.
