Lubango Center
by Promontorio

This mixed-use building is situated in a consolidated area next to the main square in Lubango, Angola.

The nine-storey building includes residential apartments, offices and shops that are accessible through a common entrance and underground parking. The construction concept is based on a principle of robustness that enables this solid building to guarantee comfort, durability and low maintenance. The materiality of the brick facade is evocative of the rich textures and colours of African rammed earth and pottery. The stratification of this materiality is emphasized by the white paint on concrete lintels and bronze aluminium window frames.
