Rushungi Eco Lodge

Rushungi Eco Lodge
2018

The basic principle of the project is to achieve a harmonious integration with the natural and cultural environment. The design of the ecolodge is based on characteristics of the natural milieu, respecting native vegetation and wildlife, soil, beaches, and the adjacent sea (including coral reefs). Ecodesign criteria have been applied, so that the ecolodge seemingly sprouts naturally from the environment, by utilising simple forms, based on traditional local materials. Building materials include: timber, thatch, native grass, and local stone. All labour will be sourced from the surrounding villages in order to support the local economy as well as to ensure upskilling of the labourers.
