The Milele House by Urko Sanchez Architects was built on the main island of the Lamu Archipelago in Kenya. The floor plan is centered around a breezy courtyard from which the wings unfold into a traditional Swahili-style house. The building’s framework was designed to be timeless, so the walls and floors were left largely in tact during the renovation. To take full advantage of the stunning views of the Indian Ocean, a rooftop platform rests under a shade made from palm leaves that offer a light and breathable protection from the weather.
