This cliff side villa with a view of the Atlantic Ocean is home to a Senegalese family. Since the site once contained a World War Two bunker, SAOTA used remnants of it to create an underground theater room. Another amazing feature in the house is a stainless steel spiral staircase.
The staircase connects the subbasement to the first floor. It has black platform steps, no risers and glass guard rails. The way it curves with its many slender spindles makes the steel staircase look like a wonderful sculpture. It creates a grand architectural focal point in this luxury family home.
A rustic wood paneled pathway is located near the stairs. At the bottom of the staircase in the basement, a rough textured , light neutral wall displays some metal artifacts as well as more colorful artwork. The layout stays spacious to give the family room to spread out. A theater area is carefully defined.
A raised wooden platform in a bedroom is the room’s first noticeable feature and it serves to define the sleeping area. The platform leaves a hallway area and a desk with a chair separated from the bed. The bed on the platform doesn’t fight it for visual competition by being done all in white bedding.
Dark, rectangular bedside lamps flank each side of the bed. Beige carpeting and a dark gray area rug add some plushness to contrast with the solid platform feature. The master bedroom has a terrace with ocean views. Both the master bedroom and children’s bedrooms are designed by SAOTA to be on the same floor in the dream home — the first.
The luxury Dakar Sow Villa has ample family living space both indoors and out. A gourmet kitchen and games room are features in the dream house’s interior, but the living space that continues outside is a beautiful lounge area that would put some hotels to shame. A wonderful looking, large L-shaped pool is the main attraction and seems perfectly fitted in the space. The deck is very large with enough room for rows of deck loungers like a cruise ship if that was desired. Instead, the layout is left spacious with just enough furniture for comfort.
A breathtaking architectural feature on the back exterior of the home is the large overhang of the roof. It stretches over the pool deck area right to the water’s edge. Rows of lights create a pattern along the inner edge of the overhang. More lights along the edge of the pool reflect the beautiful blue of its water.
