Rebero Villa - Architecture

4 bedrooms villa overlooking the city of Kigali

- Rebero Villa -

Rebero villa is a house for a Rwandan couple that bought a plot on one of the highest hill of Kigali. They wanted to build their family residence, host parties, work from home, invite guest.

When asked to designed the four bedrooms villa, we decided to work witht the biggest asset of the site -the view -  and the biggest asset of the country - its art-de-vivre -.

 

The layout is organised around patios dividing works, services and living areas. The patio let the light and vegetation inside the house, while creating buffer zones to protect privacy. They create an interesting sense of perspective and depth that highlight the volumes. Construction materials will be sourced locally. The bricks will sourced near Gitarama. They have a distinctive pink shade. The result is more a compound that a massive villa. It offers generous views over Kigali and the gardens.
