WOODEN SKY­SCRAPER FOR LA­GOS

Identity - - SUSTAINABILITY -

Con­cept plans have been re­vealed for the first wooden sky­scraper in Africa.

Cameroon-based Her­mann Kamte & As­so­ciates has taken the wraps off its de­sign for an 87-me­tre tower in La­gos which would be con­structed on top of an ex­ist­ing con­crete struc­ture.

The new tower fea­tures three dis­tinc­tive six-level blocks which are sep­a­rated by open floors fea­tur­ing gath­er­ing spa­ces and recre­ational fa­cil­i­ties for res­i­dents.

These mixed res­i­den­tial spa­ces will ac­com­mo­date one-, two-, three­and four-bed apart­ments that are shaded by a stylised wooden en­ve­lope, com­plete with sym­bols re­flect­ing Nige­rian Yoruba her­itage.
