 architecture

Here is an amazing and highly original beach house on coastal Madagascar by SCEG architects.

 architecture

The house is superbly designed to maximize coastal breezes.

6 architecture

The roof is flipped up to catch and direct a flow of air through the structure.

22 architecture

Under the shelter of the straw roof, only four rooms at each corner are enclosed.

23 architecture

Only two enclosed spaces are on a second ‘floor’ that is otherwise completely open.

 architecture

Between these stucco rooms, the heart of the home is entirely open to the cross breeze.

 architecture

The enclosed spaces on the second floor are connected by wooden paths under the roof.

 architecture

A modular rhythm is established by the persistent use of open air trelliswork to separate the spaces.

 architecture

The four enclosed stucco-clad spaces are at the four edges of the house.

 architecture

In the enclosed rooms, the modular rhythm is continued in the window muntins.

 architecture

A platform of cooling concrete keeps the bedrooms cool.

 architecture

Wooden French doors attractively frame the cool grey concrete.

 architecture

The straw roof is loosely suspended above the entire structure.

 architecture

A lovely earth toned stucco is combined with a warm red wood to create a simple but sensuous texture palette.

 architecture

The overall effect is simultaneously sultry and cool.

 architecture
The wood detailing throughout has a beguiling charm.

 architecture
The uniqueness of the design is all the more astonishing for being on such an isolated island.
 architecture
The design, combining architectural woodworking with colored stucco and concrete is reminiscent of the work of Studio Mumbai.
 architecture

Wood is even used to frame tiny square windows that poke out from the bedrooms upstairs.

 architecture

Each day’s end brings the warm glow of the sunset behind the island of Sakatia.

 architecture

This is a very unique home that is warmly welcoming and civilized, while being completely open.
