House of Love





This is such a lovely story. Ghanaian-born architect Joe Osae-Addo was living and working in Los Angeles, when on a visit to Ghana in 2000 he ran into (and eventually fell in love with) Sara Asafu-Adjaye, an old high-school classmate who was living in London. The two embarked on a long-distance relationship, and before long Osae-Addo sprang a surprise on Asafu-Adjaye: He suggested they build a house together on a piece of land in Accra, given to him by his mother. The result is this gorgeous open plan home with a mid-century modern influence. Read the rest of the Dwell story by Frances Anderton here. (Photos by Dook)

Thank you! What a good story and a beautiful home. I love that they are now living and creating full-time in Ghana.
