African Heart

Kigali, RW

African Heart is a small resort with the highest degree of comfort and security standards in the center of Kigali. The cupola architecture with the characteristic arched entrance, as well as the exterior structure with various semicircular courtyards are all based on the Rwandan palace. This results in an ensemble of striking Rwandan identity aligned along a central square or cultural events.

Individual pavilions are combined to create generous suites. The intermediate areas between the outer cupola and a smaller also cupola-shaped construction in the interior are reserved for the baths and the service areas. This way, the round interior remains entirely undisturbed.
