VGC, Lagos

TYPOLOGY : Residential
CLIENT : Private Client
SIZE : 800sqm
LOCATION : Lagos, Nigeria
STATUS : Design Proposal

H2 is a terraced house of four units within the leafy neighbourhood of VGC, Lagos. Distributed across four levels, the scheme aims to respond to the accommodation schedule and requirements of the brief.

The ground floor accommodates the general lounge and the utility areas. Open play living/dining area and the kitchen are accommodated on the first floor. Sleeping areas occupy the second floor; and the master suite is at the pent level with view opening towards a private rood garden.

The façades are composed of clean straight lines along with subtle colour and material palettes to create a simple but instantly distinguishable form – achieved with modern reinterpretation of the traditional gable roof, sliding timber screens and extended concrete planters.

Because the site is deep with the shorter length facing the road, each unit is “pulled out” beyond the next by 650mm to afford every unit at least a snippet view  of the street.
