Lamu One House is a multi-award winning property. In 2023 it won Best Luxury Architecture in Kenya by Luxury Lifestyle Awards, New York and was voted Best Single Residential Architecture in Kenya by the Laufen African Property Awards, UK.

Located at the coast, this charming contemporary Swahili house is designed to celebrate outdoor living, natural materials & craftsmanship, and a love of nature.

Designed to take advantage of the Kuzi winds, large openings and louvered shutters capture the cool breeze. The house is 3-bedroom, all ensuite, with the Master suite on the top floor enjoying a spacious roof terrace, sunset gazebo and views of the mango treetops.

The main living spaces are arranged around a beautiful open verandah complete with an infinity pool in the middle of this tropical oasis.

Blending the coast’s Swahili roots with contemporary design are at the heart of the project. The interiors and styling are inspired by the enchanting flavours of the Swahili Coast.

Construction started in 2022 and is expected to be completed this year.
