Case Study: Senegal

This is a design for a small property in Nguerigne, Senegal. This is a property of around 2,400 sq m, currently almost entirely bare and exposed except for one baobab tree. It is level, sandy and dry.

This region is close to the intersection between the Sahel, and the West Sudanian savannah – in an area where the landscape is severely degraded and denuded of vegetation. The planting is designed to create a healthy and biodiverse site within this mostly desertified area.

The site will become home to a family of four. They plan on growing food for their own consumption, and selling excess, and will also ultimately build and rent out four guest houses on the other end of the plot.

In addition to the concept plan above, full planting plans and details for implementation were delivered to the client.
