Madagascar: a hotel designed to resist cyclones
The second advantage is that construction of the buildings will respect a particularly strict process. “The operation initiator, Gérard Hoareau, wanted the twenty bungalows in this hotel complex to be sustainable, says Fabrice de Oliveira. This is why he called us in to carry out a wind study.” An essential precaution before starting to break the ground in 2010, because the island is right on the path of cyclones that regularly cross the Indian Ocean.
A special design for bungalows on piles
The Andzaha Ecolodge is located on a three-hectare private site and in particular comprises about twenty bungalows, ten of which are located with their "feet in the water" and 10 are located along the beach. They were designed by the architect Claudia Rubio. A special design was made for the structures supported on piles, particularly dealing with air passageways between the sea and the floors.
