Le Palais des Gouverneurs, Lomé, Togo 

The Palace of the Governors was built from 1898 to 1905 under the technical direction of the German engineer FURTKAMP , following the decision of Governor August KOHLER – the one who erected Lomé as capital of Togo – to build a palace enough representative that is recognizable at a distance of a thousand kilometers to impress boats .

The ” head-high ” architecture at first glance not only recalls that of the metropolis whose aura it reflects, but it also rhymes – proudly – with the rating of ” the German model colony ” that constituted the Togo at the time.
