From Bamako to Tombouctou
pour Terres & Rivages
Fleuve Niger, Mali 2007
Floating hotel new concept for 7 days cruises on Niger river.
The organization is radically different from existing ships. Peripheral wooden gangways, glazed to the exterior, take the place of the usual blind central corridor. 35 cabins, independently fabricated, are craned in the structure to comply with requirements of finishings, acoustic insulation and space modularity. A plaited enclosure, realized thanks to the local know-how, protect the vessel and confer it a contemporary and ethnic identity.
