BRITISH STANDARD / LAGOS EXCEPTION

RIBA International Award Winner, 2006 British Council, Lagos, Nigeria Achitect: Allies and Morrison “The client needed a building that conveyed openness, transparency and accessibility, while simultaneously providing high security arrangements for its occupants. The material palette of white rendering, exposed concrete and locally-sourced Iroko timber, combined with the majestic height of the façade, helps to evoke both vernacular informality and the authority proper to a quasi-diplomatic institution.“
