Kisawa Sanctuary on Mozambique’s Benguerra Island is set to debut in September. The luxury resort is entirely 3D printed using seawater mortar and seeks to set a new standard for sustainable design.
The patented 3D sand-printing technology has been commissioned specifically for the project and was used for the building facades, as well as components for flooring, tiling, and masonry.
Local artisans, including carpenters, textile designers, and weavers, were commissioned to entirely design the 12 bungalows and the Kisawa Residence, creating more than 1,000 jobs for the community.
The resort is designed to give guests the utmost privacy and all bungalows are situated on one-acre beachfront plots, complete with private swimming pools. A spa, two beach clubs, a lagoon-style swimming pool, the Barraca beach bar, a library, and a lounge at the main terrace are also available.
