Banana Island is an exclusive residential suburb of Lagos, the most populous city in Africa. AWW was invited to submit a proposal for a high rise apartment building on a prime waterfront development plot.
The scheme adopts an organic form, providing flexibility in terms of floor plate and a dramatic, curved and tapering structure enabling views of the water from all apartments.
The façade and the internal layouts are optimised to exploit the site’s development potential whilst responding to the equatorial climate. The passive building strategy maximises natural ventilation and provides well shaded external terraces.
“This landmark scheme will be a fantastic addition to the Lagos skyline and an exciting development in AWW’s rapidly developing international track record.”
