This development for Shell Trustees Nig. Ltd, (STNL) (now known as Shell Nig. Closed Pension Funds Administrator, SNCPF) comprises 4 blocks of residential accommodation laid out on an 11,000sqm plot in the Second Avenue Extension layout opposite the popular Dolphin Estate, Ikoyi, Lagos. The site was arranged to have the 4 residential blocks, each containing 8 apartments, focus on a central recreation area comprising gardens, a swimming pool and a clubhouse next to it.
The style of the architecture is urban contemporary, with great thought given to energy efficiency through recessed and shaded openings. The quality of the design and finishing endeared the project to many, especially the users, and the client commissioned us to repeat the design (with minor changes) in one of their existing estates in Abuja. The project has since become a reference point for all of Shell’s residential developments in Nigeria.
