Peponi

A Swahili word meaning paradise. I discovered a place a long time ago on the island of Lamu off the coast of Kenya called Peponi - A small hotel on the beach. It was paradise. The word Peponi has a special meaning for me. It was a trip and adventure not forgotten. East Africa captured my imagination and influenced me and my work in design, architecture, and photography.
