THE NEST ENCLAVE

The Nest Enclave is to be constructed in the commercial zone of Abelemkpe, one of Accra’s premium residential locations. Built as an apartment hotel, it will offer fully-furnished 1, 2 and 3 bedroom long stay lodgings with all essential amenities. The Nest Enclave will cater to the needs of families and groups seeking hotel accommodation for extended periods of time.

With this in mind, the design taps into the essence of an enclave of birds’ nests;  assuring guests of comfort in a secured environment. The recessions and projections in the façade provide an exciting mural of both shade and light to create an interlocking pattern of agile spaces. The design maximizes the use of the land to accommodate a well-planned landscape with adequate parking for the convenience users. With an approximate gross internal floor area of 2100m2, the design also comes with a sky bar with an infinity pool, a restaurant, a meeting room and a gym.

With this iconic building situated on a corner site of an approximate area of 1000m², the Nest Enclave delivers a radical shift in the architecture of Abelemkpe. It will challenge the apparent but subtle redevelopment agenda of the area by deepening the commitment to it.

THE HAIR SENTA

The Hair Senta has over the years become known as a one-stop-shop for all hair needs in Ghana. Through its branches across the country the company deals in the sale, distribution and application of a variety of hair products. It organizes product activations, sales, exhibitions and fashion shows to introduce products to customers. Given how strongly the business has grown to date, the company needs to expand and create a more spacious avenue for its activities.

The Hair Senta headquarters is a proposed six-level mixed-use facility located on a 1,196-meter square parcel of land. With an approximate gross internal floor area of 4,300 square meters, the proposed design occupies a prime site in one of the business corridors of the East Legon America House area of Accra.  The Hair Senta also comes with apartments and other lettable spaces.

The building design features two giant interlocking forms that create a distinct look that will enhance the streetscape of the business corridor. The double height glass façade on the ground floor increases patronage by offering passers-by an aspirational customer experience of the activities within. The design is intentional in creating this interface between the public, the customer and the Hair Senta to offer an attractive and dynamic retail experience.
The uniqueness of the architecture of the Hair Senta is expressed by the peculiar use of materials. It is all finally topped up with the glowing hair details on the facade brilliantly showing off the distinct identity of the Hair Senta.
