‘The Chelsea Camp’
Mogadishu International Airport (MIA)
Outline Proposals: located within the high security precinct of the coastal international airport, a public ‘runway’ provides the armature for organising FoH, BoH and leisure accommodation, for an upmarket, secure hotel compound.
A guest village matrix of two storey courtyards comprising 40′ and 20′ containers, rises up the sloping site giving views of the sea to the East. In-house catering of a remarkably high standard, video conference facilities, office space and camp security compliant with UN-Moss standards as well as CPOs for guests travelling into the city. In forthcoming expansion for 2017, more rooms will be added as well as additional facilities such as a conference room and basketball court.
Completed in 2015, the customised containers were fabricated by the Croatian shipyard Brodosplit.
