The Minna Development site is situated in a formerly residential block in the city of Minna, a city of 500,000 residents located 150 kilometers north west of Abuja – Nigeria’s capital city.
The project brief called for the design of a speculative commercial development potentially for a bank tenant on half the site, with the rest of the site planned for residential development.
The zoning requirements for the site mandated a maximum of 4 stories for any building, while the contemporary intention of the design is influenced by the modernist architecture of adjacent commercial construction in this burgeoning commercial sector of Minna.
