House, Msasani Bay, Dar es salaam. 2000 – 2009

The owners had several designs drawn up by different architects for this site at Msasani Bay, before being satisfied that our design would fulfill their requirement for through ventilation for most of the rooms. In order to minimise solar gain, the roof is cantilevered over the west facing facade fronting the Bay, and the wall retracts as far as possible. The line of exposed columns frame and add a degree of formality.
