Expertise

Designed as an impressive addition to the Lagos skyline, elevated above the canopy of trees acting as an island in a sea of lush vegetation. A completely private and secluded retreat that encompasses every amenity for entertaining, relaxing, created for social and business interaction.

Tropical vegetation rises to the atriums and decks in which the activity and buzz take place. Beneath the tree lined areas of seclusion reside areas for quieter moments. Cascading pools and catwalks transport guests through a range of vistas, with guest rooms that look out over the trees through floor to ceiling windows.

Semi-reflective glazing in the form of the façade subtly reflects the sky and surrounding vegetation. Indoors and outdoors completely connected and simultaneously reflected back.

The arrival is an immediate immersion in the trees meandering through the forest to enter the building. Elevators open to the dramatic view over the sunken lobby bar, out to the terrace and to the pool that cantilevers beyond.
