Benin-based architect Pascal De Souza recently completed this beautiful eco-villa situated in Cape Coast, Ghana.

Villa Amina / Pascal De Souza

The villa, a combination of a traditional technique of palm concrete, isolation in ceilings with grass and brickwork, explores the breezy coast with open facades and indoor outdoor spaces that connect the specific rooms of the house into one seamless spatially inclusive space.

This villa is a new concept, using solar energy as a major source of power for the house, an initiative towards sustainable design and manageable renewable sources.

The swimming pool is a bio one, built around a cluster of trees that were maintained all through the construction process.
