Dakar Sow House

Dakar Sow House
Real Estate

Captured between two changing shades of blue – the sky and the Atlantic Ocean – Dakar Sow House rises on a cliff just above the immense stretch of water. Constructed areas cover a surface of 1,402 square meters, and the residence is the result of collaboration between the architects of SAOTA (Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects) and Antoni Associates as interior decorators.

Because the residence is inhabited by a Senegalese businessman and his young family, it had to be designed in a way that encompasses all the family’s needs. Designed to offer the best floor plan possible for enjoying extensive panoramic views, the Dakar Sow House features a long hallway crossing the house from the study area – built as a separate volume – to the kitchen, with all the other rooms extending from it.

The house in Dakar, Senegal features a gaming/family room, a large lounge, a kitchen, barbecue terrace and pool terrace, as well as guest room adjacent to the private gym and reflecting pond.

Another interesting thing is the arrangement on the site and the house’s location on the edge of a cliff, which includes keeping part of an old World War Two bunker and transforming it into an underground cinema, connected to the house with a spiral staircase. What more could you want from a modern home like this one?
