KAROO VISTA CENTRE @ AQUILA
This exciting project created a specialist Day Visitor Centre. This substantial investment includes a dedicated day visitor coach drop-of, separate check in area, new dedicated game drive departure point and dining area for day visitors.
This multipurpose facility is also perfect for group corporate functions.
The Karoo Vista Centre was designed by well-known interior designer, Nick Wright of The Archi Co., who noted: “We drew our inspiration for Aquila’s revamp based upon its unique location. Situated along the beautiful semi-dessert Karoo mountains, surrounded by fynbos landscape in breath taking colours of burnt oranges, olive greens, dusty browns and golds. In keeping with this palette, we used local raw materials in the architecture, but also introducing a modern take with design elements. With the natural connotation that comes with the term “safari”, a touch of African influence was introduced with the use of textures, fabrics, lighting and finishes. Consciously designed to respect existing architecture and insuring that it blends seamlessly into its surrounding.”
