From renting to buying land

May 3, 2015

 

When coming to Senegal we have no intention of ever buying land, we are simply planning to rent. In Yene we find a nice house close to the fish market and the sea. It is bigger than we are looking for and a bit too expensive, but we cannot resist it. For €300 per month we have enough space to live comfortably on the ground floor and have an office and workshop

Designing

July, 2015

 

In the beginning we brainstorm and sketch in many different directions. Every time we pick up ideas, as stepping stones they lead to a design that reflects our way of living and is adapted to its location in as many aspects as possible.
