TYPOLOGY : Mixed-Use
CLIENT : TGM Education
SIZE : 900sqm
LOCATION : Lagos, Nigeria
STATUS : Design Proposal
Taking full advantage of its prime location along a busy highway in the heart of Lagos mainland, this mixed-use development is designed to be simple but also striking enough to standout and afford the owners the requisite visibility they need for their business and to also attract potential tenants.
Following the shape of the site, the building’s form is a basic rectangular block with slanted edge planes in front that gradually rise from the first floor all through to the fifth. The block is punctuated with large glazed openings to bring natural light into the internal spaces and for optimal views of the surroundings.
The interior spaces are open and free of internal columns to ensure the spaces are flexible and adaptable to various configurations.
Ledges and nooks where plants are grown are also introduced on the façades to give some greenery to the scheme and compensate for the limited green areas at the site level.
The core of the building is very compact and it is positioned at the rear to free up ample spaces in front for parking at the ground level and street-facing lettable spaces at upper levels.
