Inkline Studio
Lagos, Nigeria

An architectural design studio and furniture manufacture, the single-storey building contains a reception area, an open architectural studio, a wood workshop, and a metal workshop. The principally timber structure on concrete foundations is made from local ekki wood, and the design of the roof is drawn from the Japanese art of origami. 30-cm cavities between the interior and exterior surfaces, including the roof as well as the walls, are filled with mineral-fibre insulation panels to minimise heat absorption. Another Japanese technique, shou sugi ban, was used to preserve the timber window frames from water damage by scorching them with hot flames.
