Voronoi Façade

Akinwale designed the M&G building façade with Voronoi parametric patterns along the building’s external glazing elements. The major significance for this design element is to attract the visual focus of the public from the street point of view, towards the elevated store front display. Constructed with fabricated aluminum panels, these Voronoi façade elements also provide interesting shadow architecture in the internal spaces.

Roof Gardens and Abuja City Lifestyle

A major design challenge was to create a building that would not only merge perfectly with this distinguished surrounding landscape in terms of the city life, but also celebrate and pronounce these traits. Akinwale was able to tackle this by integrating high level roof gardens at significant vantage façade corners of the building. These architectural building elements not only gives occupants a grand view of Abuja City Center, it also contributes to its cultural pulse and lifestyle.
