Construction photos of the Mauritius Cruise Terminal at Port Louis Harbor, Mauritius.

June 27, 2022
Bermello Ajamil & Partners, in association with local engineers GIBB Mauritius Ltd., was selected by the Mauritius Port Authority to design the 75,350-square-foot, $14 million cruise terminal at Port Louis Harbor, Mauritius. The design recalls natural volcanic stone textures, and colors of the sea, and mountains through material applications such as Patina copper, exterior grey metal & organic wood textures in the interiors. The iconic form of the building is complemented by an equally creative interior design to provide passengers with a pleasant and rejuvenating experience. Play of glazed façades and skylights create a dynamic appearance from the view of passengers on the approaching ships
