All the projects have their own uniqueness due to their location and context, but the more outstanding would be the St. Veronicah Catholic Church in Syokimau (currently under construction), the tuition block and science complex for Meru University of Science and Technology, the Education Resource Centre for KICD, The offices and headquarters building for KCDA and the Industrial Incubation Park for Kenya Industrial Estates as well as Serenita Apartments and Villa Vista commercial development in Meru. In all these projects, extensive research was undertaken and a critical review of site parameters considered as well as the clients brief on uniqueness of design and environmental considerations.
The St. Veronicah Catholic Church, in Syokimau, for example, is a modern reinterpretation of worship spaces with strong emphasis on light, space and imagery whilst the Rusinga Sixth form college is as a result of strict budget and restricted space! The feedback from the students and pupils was very positive and the simple forms interlinked by wide arched horizontal passages with double circular columns gave the buildings a distinctive character and image.
Over the years, Maestro Architects have been engaged in projects mainly within the Republic of Kenya with some presence in Burundi in association with CORE engineers, led by engineer Ayub Salum. With the advancement in technology and integration of the East African countries into a single market, the firm intends to create liaisons with specific firms in Dar Es Salaam and Kampala. Equipped with cutting edge design skills, the firm will be able to provide services in the new frontier markets with the aim of eventually covering the whole of sub-Saharan Africa and setting up satellite offices in Botswana and Ethiopia – emerging regions with a dynamic construction industry.
