Private Villa Accra - Ghana - IBA

the house as landscape

Since the villa covered a large extensive area we could design the house as if it were a landscape. In the villa we used distance to make the spaces change along a route. This created a new idea of luxury and choice. So there are routes which run parallel to the inside facades, but their are also routes crossing the various outdoor courtyards: creating a wealth of possibilities of how to experience the same set of spaces in a different way.
