Koffi & Diabaté Architectes has designed an A-frame church in the coastal resort town of Assinie-Mafia, on the south coast of West Africa, in Ivory Coast. Built in 2008, the Assinie-Mafia Church measures 607m² (6,534ft²).
Here, our goal was to go beyond the traditional and to create a building in conformity with religious norms, all the while being modern, imposing and reflective of the spirit of the city. A building structure with character, both simple and intricate in its design details, with an emphasis put on natural ventilation. The project was built as a part of our community projects initiatives (donating the architecture) with the help of local residents.
