Nigeria 1

Ikoyi, Lagos, Nigeria

2017 – 2018


This project represented a unique opportunity for us to design a bespoke residence outside of our borders.

The site is in the bustling heart of Lagos, Nigeria This home for a prominent young family, needed to balance the varying needs of the owners in terms of functionality.

Though a very large home, it can be partially opened and closed when entertaining or when privacy is needed.

At ground level, we have created transparency through the main spaces to allow vistas through to the lush tropical gardens that surround them.

A ‘resort’ pool extends the full length of the site and connects all garden spaces.

At first floor level each primary wing, children’s bedrooms, main bedroom suite and guest wing can be shut down when necessary , offering both acoustic and visual privacy.

The house is a statement in modern, open living.
