The DM Residence
Banana Island, Lagos, Nigeria
In partnership with LISFORM.
Building next to or on water (the site is sand filled) is an architect's dream. Our first visit to the site triggered a design borne out of intuition: the synthesis of water, land and man.
It is only appropriate that our building respects its privilege and blessings of this magical location.
Our building represents a skeletal, in motion marine life that emanated from water and resting on land. It is, literally a building in motion, with its gaunt, athletic and transparent feel.
