Residential Building, Kenya

The site is approx. 2100 sqm located in an upscale neighbourhood in Nairobi, Kenya. The brief required a dense development with almost 50 apartments to be accommodated for a total built-up area of 10,000sm. To capture daylight as well as avoid view from the adjoining sites, the design is based on the concept of “wrapping” the building with perforated metal screens. These screens are operable and can be opened and closed as desired by the user thus creating a dynamic façade that adapts based on the user requirement and usage. Internal courtyards are provided for light & ventilation.
