Winning entry for the renovation of the park Jardim dos Professores in Maputo. This historic garden, with a privileged view over the downtown of Maputo was in a state of great degradation and was occupied by homeless people, creating an undesirable environment of danger for the Hotel and especially for the neighbouring secondary school, Escola Secundária Josina Machel. The project includes a new landscape design of the whole park, rehabilitation of the existing fountain and public toilets and the design of a new restaurant, kids area and small open-air theatre.

The architecture achieves a contemporary style using simple and local materials, such as wood, glass and natural stone, creating a pleasant and open eating area with a view over the Maputo Bay.
