Ramzi Towers

Area: 8,000m2
Status: Completion in 2020
Type: Residential
Client: Athena Capital Ltd
This unique 18 storey structure on Victoria Island is designed to give 360 degree panoramic views from 5 Cowries Creek and the Lagoon beyond, to downtown Lagos and across the Gulf of Guinea to the Atlantic Ocean.

The tower’s distinctive form and striking, deep window reveals, provide shading from the heat of the direct sun while maximising sunlight. MAX has designed a uniquely African solution which responds to local climatic, social, financial and cultural drivers. Ramzi Towers’ sprayed concrete curved shells provide structure, water-proofing, air-tightness, fire protection and solar protection in a single solution, while being sculpted to minimise wind resistance and provide a curvaceous African response to the global vernacular.
