Lamu's unique stone townhouses, many dating back to the early 18th Century, are celebrated for their intricately carved wooden front doors, imposing entrance porches and shady courtyards, the grandeur and elegance of their interiors and their beautiful decorative stucco plasterwork.

Thick external walls and high ceilings protect the inhabitants from the equatorial sun and ensure that the interiors are cool, private and secluded.

A new townhouse is proposed in the heart of the World Heritage Site of Lamu Town. It is contemporary take on the traditional courtyard house and where ventilation and privacy are paramount.
