Designing Google's first office in Africa
Google is known to have the most innovative and creative work spaces in the world. So we knew we had our work cut out for us when we began designing the Google office in Nigeria. It was important for us to create a space that was locally relevant and empowered employees to be more productive.
Size: 300 square meter
Completion Date: 2016
Scope: Interior Design
How we made Google local.
A Mud Hut meeting room with materials such as mud, hay, and rafia mat used on the walls | An Okada work station that provides an alternate work space where employees can literally ride an Okada while crunching away on their laptops | A Keke Napep meeting room that provides an alternate work space, where up to 3 employees can sit in while they work or just hangout | Original artworks from local artists, such as Biodun Omolayo that show case the hustle and bustle of Africa's largest city, Lagos.
"They took the time to understand our needs and designed a space that was Googley."
