Text description provided by the architects.

A building structure with character, both simple and intricate in its design details, with an emphasis put on natural ventilation.

Our works in the coastal city of Assinie-Mafia, Côte d’Ivoire, are part of a large urban landscaping project by Koffi & Diabaté Architectes (currently in progress) centered on the development of an eco-friendly city where notions of sustainable development are fully integrated in building design concepts and a new “coastal” aesthetic is being introduced, locally.
