House at Antananarivo

This double storey family house of generous proportions is in Antananarivo Madagascar. The design is enhanced by the exceptional use of solid rosewood trusses expressed internally. The roof cladding is a combination of local hardwood shingles left in its natural state and interspaced with green reflective glass roof lights. The verandah stretches along the length of the house and faces a large pool, itself embraced on both sides with a colonnaded covered walkway reflecting in the water.
