Diary of MyWeku Restaurant: Getting a sense of scale
I arrived in Accra on the 3rd of December 2016 with two close friends I had met at the University of London (Wye College) years ago.
James and Matt had come to see what all the fuss was about Ghana and of course to see the land on which MyWeku Restaurant was to be sited. Busy James had made incredible use of his “Tree Surgeon” profession to uproot a rather large tree stump on the site whilst Lazy Matt looked on completely unperturbed.
James and I eventually got round to plotting the various points or corners of the restaurant and cafe to get a sense of scale. The architectural plan was incomplete but we had enough information to plot the building’s dimensions.
This exercise was particularly useful in gauging how much space we had for landscaping and outside seating. It was a pleasant surprise to find out that the space for landscaping was a lot bigger than I had expected.
