Architectural Design: Trends and Inspiration

What are the current trends in architectural design? This post seeks to take you through the trends of architectural design in the capital.

Apartments

According to an Accra-based architect, the current trend in building style is the high-end apartments: apartments or self-contained housing units in a high-rise building. The high demand for these buildings leads to a high number of developers turning to this market. Constructing these buildings save space and apartments also offer their occupants the opportunity to interact with other residents, thus promoting social interactions. Most of the apartments springing up in the city are safer than houses, because neighbours are constantly watching one another’s properties. Some of these apartments are gated and have a security service. Examples of apartments in Accra includes Rivonia, Villagio, Clifton and Beaufort Properties. Neighbourhoods with a high number of apartments are Cantonments, Labone, Osu, Ridge and Airport. Most of these new apartments springing up provide their residents with recreational facilities such as swimming pool areas and lawn tennis courts.

Office and commercial complexes

A lot of investors are going into the construction of commercial complexes that are sustainable and environmentally friendly. The spaces serve as retail, convenience shops, offices for financial institutions and other businesses. These buildings are mostly high-rise with elevators leading to the various floors of these buildings. Most of these commercial properties are located in the Central Business District of Accra. More modern office complexes are located at Airport City and they are home to businesses such as UT Bank, Vodafone, Silver Star, Stanbic, SSNIT Emporium and others. The World Bank Building is popular for its environmentally sustainable features, including energy- and water-saving features.
