Like seeing a celebrity

I’ve seen this house before…

Most Ghanaian houses are built with concrete — not wood.

Yesterday I went to my friend’s house for her 3-year old son’s birthday party.  I knew her husband was Joe Osae-Addo, a renowned architect.  Turns out the house was featured in a 2007 issue of Dwell magazine.  My pictures won’t do the house justice so I’ve “borrowed” them from the magazine’s.
