BUILDING IN DAKAR
Dakar I Senegal I 2017
This residential building takes advantage of the required distance from the plot perimeter to create a facade open to the outside. The facade creates a zig-zag like pattern all around the building giving the illusion that the floors are different from one another, when in reality- for structural and organizational reason – they are all the same. From the 1st floor up the building widens allowing for more spacious apartments.
Three cavity are carved out of the building to enable a natural ventilation of the apartments and allow natural light in the living spaces.
