Palmyra MauritiusIsland Dreams
Palmyra is a building built and designed to be energy efficient, keeping in mind the island country´s climate. This is a project on a beautiful river side plot with a large landscaped garden overlooking the hills beyond. The apartments built on this site are angled to overlook the garden below and the hills in the distance. The wind in Mauritius blows from the South East during the year and the apartments are largely oriented in the direction of the wind to facilitate cross ventilation and to craft energy efficient homes.
