A new build commercial and residential master-plan of an 11 acre site in Arusha in northern Tanzania

d u s t was invited to tender for a commercial and residential masterplan over an 11-acre site in Arusha, Northern Tanzania. A project of gargantuan proportions, we have worked closely with Tanzanian consultants and a local architecture practice, Kapwani Associates, to ensure that we are meeting every part of the brief. Our proposal is a simple, straightforward construction with contemporary flourishes; the commercial segment of the plan will be split into two distinct zones for retail and dining – thoughtfully placed to ensure footfall across the site from morning to evening.
