Work begins on the reconstruction and renovation of Number One Lagos in Nigeria

New façade design

Enabling work has begun to facilitate the reconstruction and renovation of a landmark office building in the Nigerian city of Lagos, the most populous city in Africa.

The Number One Lagos building, in the Victoria Island area, the city’s main business district, will see the former IMB Plaza building being transformed. The structure, with its distinctive, blue-glazed pyramidal form, has been a feature of the Lagos seafront since 1984, but had fallen into disrepair in recent years. The building required a revamp to remain viable as a commercial offer. 

Chapman Taylor’s plan for our client, Green Eagle Realty, rationalises the floorplan and layout, and incorporates a new façade design. The interior façades in the reception area have also been improved. Commercially lettable floor space has been increased from 5,500m2 to 8,900m2 GLA.

The much-needed redesign will create a modern and flexible office environment in the dynamic and expanding commercial hub of Nigeria’s, and Africa’s, largest city.

Existing building

Chapman Taylor has designed the exterior restructuring and the CAT A office fit-out, along with the interior design of other areas of this striking office building.
