This project is a renovation  house in the city of Dakar, Sénégal.  The target of the project connect itself to the topic taken on by the next Architecture Biennale in Venice: the will to win some battles and cross some borders in order to reach the better quality for the -builtscape- and try to get better the life of the people. The process that define the body of architecture  is a fusion between two cultures -Italian and senegalés- , two way to think the spaces and their roles in the daily uses earn by the collaboration among the Italian Architects and senegalés client and workers.


The volume of the extension is layed down on the body of preexisting house with the intent to create continuity, not camouflage, between the two different fases. The pure white extension is incrased by an elegant colored frame that draw on the façade the balconies and some covers to attenuate the sun effect on interior spaces. These, connected by the interior scale, become the natural conquest to the sky.
