Corniche Bay Villas + Banyan Tree Hotel
in association with NLA
Black River, Mauritius
Project proposal 2008

Contemporary thinking in Landscape Architecture calls for a design approach that is responsive to local conditions and rooted in the indigenous landscape. This however begs the question, what is indigenous Mauritius? It is impossible to imagine an untouched Mauritius; an island isolated from the world. In association with Newtown Landscape Architects and Foster + Partners, the landscape design approach is therefore not merely rooted in the natural indigenous landscape, but in the full technicolor of the Mauritian naturalised and cultural landscapes and the master plan for the Corniche Bay development. The landscape design evolved as a series of responses to these layers.
