Royal Palace Maseru

2013

The existing Royal Palace was built some 35 years ago in 1975/76 and its completion and occupation was deliberately intended to coincide with the celebration of the 10th anniversary of Lesotho’s independence. July 2008 saw the initiation of the new Palace project by the Ministery of Public Works with the appointment of Palace Group.

Makeka Design Lab, in association with A+I Unlimited, was appointed in 2012 for the Palace interior design. The nature, materiality and palette for the new royal residence is informed by the rich context and history of Lesotho and the royal family.
