BELLE MARE PLAGE
A key feature of the Belle Mare Plage landscape is the development of rear circulation areas that have been designed as sanctums. The volcanic stones - which create the gentle walls of these sanctums - are abstracted versions of the basalt stones seen piled high in the many cane-fields of Mauritius. These forms are a homage to the people who worked (and continue to work) those fields. The great mounds of basalt stones were cleared from the plains by slaves to ease the production of agirculture. Local legend has it that every stone represents the head of a dead slave.
