LASWA Head Office & Jetty Terminal

Status: Completed

Location: Waterfront of the 5 Cowries Creek, Falomo, Ikoyi, Lagos

About the project

The LASWA Head office building is located on the waterfront of the 5 cowries creek, Falomo, Ikoyi, Lagos. It is bounded on the East side by the Falomo bridge and the 7 floor Multi-storey Car Park on the North side.


The building is a three story Jetty Terminal building (LASWA Head Office) with a GIA of 2,010 m. sq. incorporating berthing space for 20 boats.
The development is designed to take full advantage of the views along the water front. This concept is expressed by the full curtain wall on the south façade of the building as well as the circular perforated window openings on the cladding wall on the east and west sides. The north side façade is merged with the roof which shields the service zone from direct view. The white scheme allows the form to be expressed.


The building’s context makes it visible from different views and heights, hence the design as the building will be seen from all aspects. Support facilities have been provided on the east and west sides of the building. The terminal facilities include departure and arrival lounges with support facilities as well as a café and private lounge on the 1st floor. Heavy duty floating pontoon which rises with the tide for ease of use.
