IGE

Gbagada, Lagos.

TYPOLOGY : Residential
CLIENT : Ige Family
SIZE : 401sqm
LOCATION : Lagos, Nigeria
STATUS : Design Proposal

Our design concept for this scheme was derived from the Chinese philosophy of Yin-Yang – complementary opposites within a unified whole to create balance: Female & Male, North & South, Shade & Light – opposite but equal. This concept was aptly carried through the entire scheme. From the floor layout to the building form, exterior to interior.

The building is sliced into two equal halves of front and rear wing by a common wall. Two stair shafts towering beyond the structure are located at opposite corners diagonal to each other, giving the rather small building a robust presence.
