Sitting area ground floor at Baobab House Lamu
The house has been built with the use of traditional Swahili materials, the floor and walls are plastered with neru (limestone and color mixed), which gives it a very cool, soft touch. The ceilings are built of mangrove poles (boriti) and the outside walls are plastered with coral stones, to match the environment.
