Pavillon Camelia by Koffi & Diabaté Architectes
Pavillon Camelia is a modern house combined with traditional building techniques in Assini-Mafia, Côte d’Ivoire, designed in 2009 by Koffi & Diabaté Architectes.
To create a building integrating both modern architecture and traditional building techniques, such was our ambition with the Pavillon CAMELIA, our first experiment building with rammed earth in Assinie-Mafia.
Located on the waterside, the residence stands at the heart of a natural landscape, offering protection against natural sunlight, all the while providing thermal comfort with the building’s rammed earth walls which allowed us to propose a different approach to the traditional North/South orientation.
Composed of two main units with strong, graphic, architectural tones, the whole is covered with a double-ventilated roof on one side, and a grand terrace overlooking a pool and majestic greenery… A modern tropical haven, such is the experience of the PAVILLON CAMELIA.
