Pomene Community School, Mozambique


Luxury Frontiers has undertaken the architecture and interior design work for MSC's Pomene beach and Portuguese Island beach clubs. In March 2023, Cyclone Freddy struck Mozambique, devastating Pomene and damaging infrastructure, including local schools. MSC requested Luxury Frontiers to partner with them on the rebuild program for the Pomene Community School. We agreed to undertake the design of new school classrooms on a pro bono basis.

We needed to design the school in the most cost-effective and straightforward manner possible, given the available labor and materials. We opted for a simple design approach, using breeze blocks instead of glass windows to allow natural light and facilitate passive airflow through the buildings. This design also took into account wind load to reduce uplift forces and limit future damage of these buildings during cyclone seasons.

To celebrate the school's opening, a private luncheon was held at MSC Pomene Lodge, attended by over 80 children from Pomene. Luxury Frontiers donated school supplies, which were distributed on the day. Additionally, we coordinated further donations from our suppliers. Special thanks to Cool Living for providing insect screens and Signage Production Studio for the signage stencil.
