Designed to imply dominance as a landmark & also emphasize stylish living along the shorelines of Lagos Island, Nigeria, the fly-roof towers is a mixed use development consisting of 920 workstation units, 86 luxury apartments, 185 parking spaces, 10 service floors, 30floors in each tower approx 95 floors in all, 4multi-level parking stories 6 panoramic glass sky-bridges, cabling chases, passenger and service lift shafts, firemen lifts, sky observatories and many more.

A series of sketch workflow images are being showcased here to take you through the composition of the building.
