Lagos State commissioned us to provide a dilapidation schedule of the heritage building as part of a tourist area redevelopment. The building had also being under-used and as such a proposal was to be developed to increase foot traffic in the building and rehabilitate the building.
To this effect we have provided a design that brings the building into the 21st Century proposing the hall as to be used as an high tech cinema full with advanced new sound systems and lighting. The lighting full with multiple rigs to improve the use of the hall for stage plays and fashion walkways.
To further promote the use of the space, we have added a rooftop restaurant with an impressive view of the ocean ensured by providing a panoramic glass view from the restaurant. The restaurant is added with the help of steel sections around the building to support the light structure above. The restaurant structure is cladded using bronze coloured aluminium cladding.
