Regional Associates have undertaken a major renovation of this existing lodge in Buhoma, South Western Uganda, home to the famous mountain gorillas. To begin with the main areas were reconstructed using local eucalyptus pole framing and thatch. The forms were inspired by the steep hills of the Bwindi Impenetrable forest onto which the lodge faces. Locally sourced bamboo was used to create a new pergola structure. A new reception building and massage house have also been constructed.
The lodges 8 existing banda’s have also undergone major upgrades with the introduction of new bathrooms complete with solar hot water and flushing toilets. Deep timber window reveals are utilized to create a space for the display of objects and artifacts whilst offering a variety of glimpses out into the landscape beyond.
