Small corner of paradise in Lagos

Nigerian architect-designer Tosin Oshinowo, founder of cmDesign Atelier (cmD+A), continues her exploration into modernist, minimalist, and responsible architecture with this coral pavilion, located in the Lagos lagoons. The particularity of this design is that it is located on a peninsula accessible only by boat from the Nigerian city. It thus gives the impression of being lost on a deserted island, but remains within the metropolitan limits, serving as a relaxation area for day trips. The interior-exterior building takes into account the equatorial climate: it plays on the shadow lines created by the sun, protects from the rain with its cantilevered roof and lets a refreshing breeze filter through with its north-south wind. The colors are equally important, between the white structure, the coral-pink floor, the turquoise pool and the olive-green furniture elements that recall the lush nature. An idyllic space, lined with palm trees, far from the urban frenzy.
