Modern Homes To Grow With The Family

Back Home

Private rooftops and superb views

Vizazi means generation in Swahili. And made for multi-generational living are the new Vizazi homes now on sale in Fumba Town.

The Vizazi homes will add to the variety of houses and apartments already available in Fumba Town, the seaside property just a 20-minute car drive outside the capital Zanzibar City. “We are building the new units for families with flexibility in mind”, said Sebastian Dietzold, the CEO of estate developer CPS when launching the homes at the end of February in Dar es Salaam. Architect is Leander Moons, an urban planner from the Netherlands. Moons has been with the Fumba project from the start and has designed the community row houses Moyoni Homes and the most luxurious Bustani Villas currently under construction.

“What we need nowadays are living spaces that grow, or shrink, with our life”, says Moons. “Children move out, while elderly parents may move in to join you.” The Vizazi homes include four- and three bedroom town houses as well as two- and one-bedroom apartments. Floor plans and walls can be altered before and after moving in. 

“Privacy was the most important for us”, says Moons. Like a Victorian row house, each unit built in a new wood technology stretches over three floors with its own divine individual rooftop and a private inner court. Although blocks of four houses form one greater building, each unit feels like a house on its own. All the windows are set back for sun-shading, the homes are alternatively facing sea or garden view. The steps on staircases are lit – adding to the safety and comfort of the elder generation, and also rendering a modern touch. “The homes are built in a way that your neighbour cannot look into your property”, Moons emphasises. 

Architect Leander Moons’ flexible family homes for Zanzibar are built in wood technology, “good for your health and the future of the planet”
