The Sankofa Plaza project is a proposed 40,000gsf. mixed-used development in the Amasaman district of the Greater Accra region of Ghana. It is designed as a hybrid building with ground floor retail, two upper level apartments and a penthouse suite at the top. In line with the design philosophy of LGD, we’ve managed to once again achieve a modern aesthetic, enabled by the magnificent composition of glass and bamboo siding. Further, the project explores the way a facade can deliver a visual impact by the vibrant panoply of orange and yellow paint colors serving as a tint splash of formal appeal. The roof is designed as a private habitable landscape surface with environmental, as well as social benefits. Sankofa Plaza strives to be a small scale commercial neighborhood development, with the intent to serve the growing community in which it belongs.
