Light House by W design Architecture Studio

Posted on

Following the success of previous projects, W design architecture studio known for creating spaces that enhance the experience of living in Africa amongst its nature has completed yet another project they call ‘the light house.’

Located in the Eye of Africa Estate, the residence is characterized by an exterior façade clad in steel and concrete. The gabled roof structure uses its durability to reduce the overall height of the house with the understanding that a conventional roof of wooden joists and struts would have added an unnecessary amount of volume. The cement mixture provides a surface occupied by a green roof where fresh grass extends the ground floor garden to the rooms above.

Within the center of the complex, a pond provides a cool oasis functioning as an air conditioning system that allows air flow into the house and a spot where large groups can relax. Maneuverable doors work in complement to the feature as they let north-facing light penetrate the boundaries between the interior and the exterior.
