A look at some of these images of the Dakar Sow House already impressed me, and then to find out it was built atop an old World War II bunker was the icing on the cake. This abode created by SAOTA Architects has an expansive view of the Atlantic Ocean and could easily catch the eye of some of the world's most prominent architects.

The Dakar Sow House was freshly constructed this year and rests on the edge of a cliff in Dakar, Senegal. At an astonishing 1,402 square meters this abode represents the perfect living quarters for a lavish family; complete with panoramic views, gaming room, study quarters, and pooltop terrace, the Darak Sow House is a dream destination.

Implications - While lavish living may appeal to bachelors and young people, companies need to be considerate that older demographics -- including families -- also appreciate the opportunity to indulge in luxe living. Companies who create luxurious, yet family-friendly products will seek growth from this undiscovered target market.
