Casa A Due Altezze by Ewald Erribus:
“A young artist and writer from the age of twenty-one years went to live with her grandmother and aunt in the small village of Ollongeir in the coastal strip of the Altezze.
The climate is mediating, the sea facing shores are often rainy and cold and she prefers to spend part of the year on the land in the middle of the South East of the Cameroon country. The family is the origin for her to travel to the seaside during rainy season. The family also includes her brother and her husband and they are architects/designers with two decades experience. Casa A Due Altezze has four sets of spaces:
1. Kitchen/Cooking/Dining room:
This set consists of a desk and two benches, one of which is used as a reading bench. The kitchen can be closed by two sliding doors that can be tilted inwards. The beachside scene is stunning and the food is served at table straight away. The beach is also serving as a backdrop for the reading bench.
2. Space for a Study:
This room is the second bedroom set on the first. A fireplace is the centre piece of this room and a huge multicoloured scarf is displayed on the window-wall. The room is kept clear so that it provides a nice view over the sea and the wall is painted a striking Taupe. A drop of water across the table looks like a favourite flute and the ‘stemkids’ water fountain is visible from every corner. The background of the room is shelled with a multicoloured ribbon placed at a great angle to create the impression of raindrops. A basket full of books is seen at the end of the corridor and looks great when lit with the lamps. The ‘stemkids’ water fountain is illuminated by a row of lamps and looks incredible when double lit with a candelabra light. The soul of the room is thus illuminated and the colours of the sunset come into play.”
