Architecture 256: Africa's Premier Magazine Architecture 256

BELLE VUE: Kampala Uganda


In the heart of Lweza, the house was designed on the hill side with a very steep incline and 150degree panoramic view to lake victoria. It sits on a series of garden terraces accessed from different levels of the house, finally culminating in the infinity pool that overlooks the main garden and the lake. All major rooms were designed to have a lake view and minimal solar heat gain. Wood and glass have been used to allow for interaction between the indoors and outdoors while also blending the building into its natural woody surrounding. The underground gym located on the lower pool level allows for use of space above it as private garden.
