“People ignore designs that ignore people”
- Frank Chimero -
Are you looking for an architect in Tanzania?
We have specialized in custom architectural designs since 1986. Our goal is to enhance the way in which people interact with the spaces they spend most of their time in whether private homes or public institutions. We will take your project from conceptual sketch to completed building and will also handle all tedious work with permits and licenses.
Our office is in Arusha but we work with clients from across Tanzania. Each individual project that we undertake is evaluated and designed within its explicit local environment to guarantee that each solution is supported by its context.
As an architecture company we strive to follow the principles of functionality, aesthetics, economy, outcome and the environment to achieve the best possible results for all parties involved in the project.
The Full Package - Inception to Turnkey
The first thing we do is discuss your project in depth - your vision, your budget, the site, the functionality of the building, legal issues, timelines, our fees and so on and we advise you on the best way forward.
After the groundwork is laid out we start on the first sketches. These will give you a clear picture of the way the building looks and functions, the construction costs, materials, orientation on the site etc. We ensure that you are 100% satisfied before we proceed with any further steps.
This is the point where we create fully detailed drawings to be used for construction. There are a number of different types required depending on the project. The set will always include architectural drawings and will often include structural drawings, electrical drawings, mechanical drawings and bills of quantities. Interior design drawings and landscaping drawings can also be included if necessary.
Having completed all drawings and calculations it is time to start building. We help you select a contractor either directly or through tendering the project. All paper work, permits and registration is taken care of at this stage and finally construction can start. We then supervise the construction process to ensure the building ends up as it was intended to all the way to a completed building.
Concepts and ideas behind a few of our recent designs
UNITED WORLD COLLEGES EAST AFRICA - CAFETERIA
As part of phase 2 of the UWCEA project we designed a cafeteria to be used by 300 students. In the same spirit as the boarding house we pulled elements from the local Maasai culture and incorporated them into the design.
THE FOUNDATION FOR TOMORROW - LIBRARY CLASSROOMS AND OFFICES
Based on the mission and vision of TFFT the starting point for this project focused on creating a building representing an open and inclusive community.
PRIVATE RESIDENCE - NGARAMTONI
Contemporary home for a large family built in Ngaramtoni, Arusha. The design concept takes its starting point on the great views at the site. The directions of the 3 main visual attractions at the site are reproduced in the form of a plan in a triangular form.
