ALHAJI’S RESIDENCE

TYPOLOGY : Residential
CLIENT : Alh. Yusuf Rabiu

STATUS : Construction Documentation

Our design programme for this scheme was majorly hinged on the regimentation of the religious and cultural values of the Client. Spaces are clearly defined and accentuated with strong elements. On the ground floor, formal and informal activity zones are separated by a wide elegant gallery which allows for a clear distinction between semi-private and private areas. The use of same gallery is reversed on the upper floor where it now serves as the link to all sleeping areas and the family lounge and thus allowing for easier interaction amongst residents.

This 832sqm mansion – on 2805sqm site – features extensive green area, a mosque, tree-lined drive way, outdoor kitchen, gazebo, water fountain, stewards’ quarters and services building.
