TEN HOUSES IN ABIDJAN
10 Houses in Abidjan.
The brief was for 10 houses on a large parcel of land in the best area of Abidjan.
As the street was at a 45° angle to north the site was divided diagonally, resulting in triangular stands which required a more interesting solution than stands which are merely rectangular.
The owner also requested a variation in designs, though all homes to be built from steel, glass and, concrete with some natural stone finishes, he did not want mere copies. This resulted in five distinctly designed houses, then mirrored – each changed and adapted individually.
All the houses are designed with 4 suites, a study, family/dining room open plan to the kitchen and a large lanai.
Double volume spaces were used to create a spacious feel, and to allow light to enter from above the lanai roof.
Sun control was extremely important as it is a hot, tropical climate where sun is never needed inside the dwellings, and all of the homes have their own swimming pools.
A guardhouse and gym was also supplied on the stand and provision was made for ample landscaping.
