Architecture

Inspired by elements of traditional western African architecture, the house incorporates earth based construction, a courtyard and large roof overhangs to fulfill the need for beautiful, functional housing in the Ashanti region of Ghana.

The rammed earth construction insulates and protects the home from extreme temperatures, and is a familiar material that is readily available.
