Private Villa Accra - Ghana - IBA

The site and views

The site is a large hill just outside the capitol of Accra. From the site one has the most wonderful views over the surrounding valley. This interaction between build spaces and rough external nature therefore became the driver behind the idea to make the external spaces the center of the villa. The existing most characteristic views were first documented. The house was subsequently designed around these views, so to perserve them and to enrich them.
