The Dangote Head Office building represents an exceptional integration of return on investment, strict planning regulations and innovative form adaptation to context and scale.
Situated on Alfred Rewane Road, a premium real estate zone, we had two challenges to exploit: The development must optimize the use of the site, and most definitely, elegantly portray the grand image of the organization whose head office will be located in it.
Four floors of ramp parking seats above of the site, the choice of elevated parking was informed by the high water table which makes multiple basement floors prohibitively expensive. Faceted perforated Aluminum Panels clad the parking floors, winding from the soffit of the double volume entrance lobby to the last parking floor.
The form rising eleven floors above the parking base is composed of 2 sets of identical towers at varied heights butting each other on 2 sides to create a radiating petal form .
The building consist of a 200 capacity auditorium style conference hall on the ground floor, 300 capacity banquet hall overlooking a golf course on the 16th floor, generous sloped parking and a state of the art facade cladding and glazing system.
