3bd Architects Planning Design for Villa Tatu, Lubumbashi, DRC by mbachi kaluba

3bd Architects recently completes the Concept, Outline and Planning design (RIBA Stages 2 and 3) for a contemporary Villa in Lubumbashi, Democratic Republic of Congo. The private residence is predominantly built from concrete and steel. Although the main programme of the house is comprised on the ground floor, the level of the spaces varies in different rooms as you flow through the building, allowing the forms to appear floating or comfortably settled in their surroundings.

Inside the property sits a delightful but simple composition of building forms. As you wonder through the unique spaces you feel the joy and excitement reminiscent of a museum/gallery. Specific attention is given to the external areas which provide passive cooling, living and dining options day or night.

3bd Architects Concept Design for Bollorée Logistics Offices, Lubumbashi, DRC by mbachi kaluba

Bollore Logistics has hired 3bd Architects to lead the Feasibility Design (RIBA Stage 1) process for the new New Bollorée Logistics Head Offices in Lubumbashi, Democratic Republic of Congo.

We are honoured and excited about this project - The aim of the conceptual visualisation is to provoke a discussion. The concept design for the New Bollorée Logistics in Lubumbashi, Democratic Republic of Congo is by no means a representation of the final building, but a suggestion of materials, atmosphere and relative size to be constructed on the existing site off avenue Shangungu.
