TEXTILE ARCHITECTURE ON THE ZAMBESI

SITE LOCATION: Mana Pools, Zimbabwe

With the great Zambezi River slowly flowing past, Little Ruckomechi nestles under iconic Albida trees, in Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools National Park, a World Heritage Site of exceptional beauty and wildlife diversity.

SCOPE OF WORK

Textile Architecture & Engineering

Tenthouse Structures design-engineered, supplied and installed the striking roof membrane structures covering the main areas. 

Our sophisticated stretch-canvas solution met the client’s needs, exuding a wow-factor whilst remaining economical in design and installation. We mirrored twin canopies to transform the hospitality area into a peaceful sanctuary, creating an intimate and sheltered communal space that boasts unhindered views of the great Zambezi flood plains.

 

The elegant and contemporary style combines technical ingenuity and unique design to reinvent the classic bush camp.
