An iconic setting, Northern Tanzania is undoubtedly one of the world’s most celebrated wilderness landscapes. Renowned for the greatest wildlife spectacle on earth and now home to two lavish lodges and one high-end tented camp. The luxury collection is spread across three of Tanzania’s world-renowned National Parks. All three projects, developed and owned by Helios Lodges Tanzania will be operated by international hotel brand Kempinski.
Source Interior Brand Architecture alongside GAPP Architects are proud to have been selected as the design team for this landmark collection.
Harnessing years of experience working with luxury brands to create sustainable resort developments in remote, ecologically sensitive areas in Africa, the team is well placed to provide beautifully crafted designs worthy of their unique sites.
‘We actively seek projects that inspire and challenge us, as well as clients who really hold the intrinsic value of our design in high esteem. Being afforded the opportunity to compile a bespoke professional team to bid for and win no less than three international projects that embody these values is a design team’s dream,’ says Jeremy Stewart, Executive Director of Source Interior Brand Architecture.
Each development has a distinct design ethos related to its unique wilderness setting. Delivering a luxury experience while referencing distinctive features of each specific landscape draws the three together as a complimentary collection. This spoils visitors with three distinctive experiences in three distinct locations.
Featuring raw surfaces that relate the architecture to the landscape, the Serengeti Lodge’s design is sophisticated, intuitive and non-invasive.
Lake Manyara boasts a dreamy tented camp, inspired by deep earth tones and fine grasslands with flowing sheer fabrics framing the incredible views.
In a location renowned for its diverse and colourful bird life the Tarangire Lodge features a playful, light and textured interior full of colour surprises set in bold architecture.
‘Being aware of our collective responsibility to protect these precious sites, the design of these off -the-grid destinations has been driven by finding appropriate and sustainable solutions that have the least possible impact on the environment’. says Sally Tsiliyiannis, Director of GAPP Architects.
Helios Lodges Tanzania are confident that the combination of iconic settings, inspired aesthetics, responsible design and world-class facilities under an international brand will make this an extraordinarily valuable new offering to Tanzania’s national parks.
“Working together with The Source IBA, GAPP Architects and Kempinski on these projects is an exciting journey through modern African design and architecture. We are very happy with the outcome of all team efforts, competence and creativity, which will ultimately award our future guests with a unique and unforgettable experience in these magical parts of our planet.”, says Lachezar Todorov, Director of Helios Lodges Tanzania.
