Sala Terrena is a ‘concept to key’ home building company working primarily on the coast of Kenya with projects in the bush and around Nairobi. With a passion for creating dream homes, boutique lodges, and exclusive camps, we have the experience, paired with creativity to turn your vision into reality. 

Our architect, designer and CEO Andrew Melesi, tailors each of his designs to work in harmony with the natural landscape, catching the breeze and framing all views.  His coastal designs are inspired by Swahili, Casa Mexicana, and coastal Morocan styles, while his bush designs all work around the environment they are in. 

We approach building in a holistic way to guarantee our high quality standards and achieve a cohesive design. 
We have built homes, lodges and boutique hotels in Watamu, Lamu, Kilifi, Diani, Tsavo, Masai Mara, Sarara, Naivasha and Nairobi, as well as Tanzania. Notable projects include; Watamu Treehouse, Shwari House, Sarara Camp and Tree Lodge and Dhow House, Kilifi. We have significant experience in creating second home, high end rental properties along the Kenyan Coast, as well as working in the Kenyan bush.
