Architecture Boom is High in Mozambique


Africa and Africans are moving from the bust to the boom, an economic growth rate of 7.1%, which eventually augmented to 8.1% in the final quarter of the last year undoubtedly gives a concrete proof to it. Mozambique, especially, is witnessing an abrupt growth in the form of modish and colonial buildings in the capital Maputo, endowing it an absolutely distinct character.

The Mediterranean-style architecture, wide tree-lined avenues, amazing beaches, sidewalk cafés and Portuguese-styled villas, a wide range of hotels and restaurants, and a lively cultural blend have accounted to Maputo’s reputation as one of the most developed and charming cities in the Southern Africa.

The refining building architecture in Mozambique has led its investment to pour in on an unprecedented scale. All across Maputo, to be precise, cranes stretch up can be seen alongside new towers to house luxury hotels, corporate offices, and posh apartment houses. The unique architecture of Maputo gets acknowledged when we talk about beautiful architectures in the world. Recently, Maputo Railway Station, often called as one of the most attractive stations in the world, got featured in the famous Hollywood movie, “Blood Diamond”

Though Mozambique still ranks 185 out of 186 on the United Nation’s 2012 Human Development Index, it is Africa’s one of the fastest growing economies over the past decade, the huge infrastructure projects, foreign equity scrambling for opportunities in telecoms, and enhancing financial services are certain factors that ensure Mozambique is on the good move. 

Construction projects of home architectural services in Mozambique with an approximate worth of $25 billion are ongoing with the nation’s most valuable real-estate in Maputo. With a current population of around 2.5 million (increasing at a pace of 5% per year), eighty percent of Maputo’s inhabitants are living in slums, however, the new buildings on the horizontal plane are overwhelmingly changing the building architecture in Mozambique. With each passing day, this growth is getting distributed to other cities too, from Cape Town to Cairo, the existing and unbuilt infrastructure is vigorously showing greater densification, growing the land values in the majorly in the central parts.

Even expats are showing sheer interest in the home architectural services in Mozambique that cover multi-story housing typologies, houses rooted in the local socio-economic and cultural conditions, and infrastructures seeking to utilize space more efficiently. The architectural project organizers in Mozambique are inclining towards facilitating the development of more compact urban environments in the slums, making future infrastructure investments more cost-effective. “On this background, the projects seek to improve the mobility, the access to the infrastructures and their economize space,” state the project organizers.
