Dakar Sow Residence - Dakar, Senegal
  • Size: 12,000 sq. ft.
  • Built: 2011

Built for a Senegalese businessman and his family, the Dakar Sow Residence is a breathtakingly ultra-modern contemporary open-plan 12,000 sq. ft. three-level luxury cliffside home, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean in Dakar, the capital of Senegal in West Africa.

Constructed on the edge of a cliff on the site of an old World War II bunker, near the intersection of Avenue du President Fr. Roosevelt & Avenue des Diambars, the incredible Dakar Sow Residence embraces a spectacularly mesmerizing coastline vista that takes full advantage of dramatic panoramic ocean views that sweep out beyond the Ile de Madeleine โ€“ the smallest national park in the world, and a UNESCO World Heritage tentative list site.

โ€œWhilst the cliffside site presented an extraordinary opportunity for a house on the edge of Dakarโ€™s CBD, the slowly eroding nature of the cliff face required a very carefully considered structural solution resulting in a building design that seemed to float off the cliffโ€™s edge,โ€ said Greg Truen, Project Partner of SAOTA.

Part of the old WWII bunker was retained to house an underground cinema that opens up into a water courtyard /moat that runs along the boundary of the property to create a water feature at the gateway to the residence connecting back to the home via a timber-paneled walkway leading to a spiral staircase that runs from the lower ground level through to the first floor and second-floor levels of this incredible residence.

Exquisitely architected to facilitate the ultimate in seamless luxury indoor/outdoor living without equal, the Dakar Sow Residence features a stunningly crafted open design that includes an L-shaped infinity edge pool and garden terrace that are cantilevered over the cliffside, creating a distinctively extravagant private luxury lifestyle experience, rivaling some of the very best resorts in the world.
