Capital One apartments, Nairobi, Kenya top of the market, and the firm’s apartment complexes contribute to an enjoyable urban lifestyle, with individual houses and villas continuing the lifestyle theme. With such a busy working schedule throughout the year, the firm tends not to record its milestones. “Our decade anniversaries seem to come often,” Mr Beglin says, “and our twenty-fifth anniversary approaches.” In addition, it has not been easy to achieve external milestones, as the awards system in Kenya is not well established. Mr Beglin admits that steps are starting to be taken to recognise achievements in the area. “The architectural association is starting to do awards every two years.

international property awards for Watermark, Eaton and local awards for Naivasha Simba, and Nova Apartments.”

The World Marketplace “We enjoy the lifestyle that emanates from producing economical and well-crafted design work,” Mr Beglin explains, highlighting the firm’s core values. “As technology develops, so do building components and services.” For Beglin Woods, the world is now a marketplace, with anything able to be bought from anywhere. This allows buildings to be more sophisticated and economic, encouraging the firm to introduce elements into a building that were not possible a short time ago.
