Explore the JOI House in Parkview Estate Ikoyi, Lagos designed by Nigerian Architect Chuka Ihonor.
About the JOI House Parkview 1988/1991
In 1925, legendary architect Le Corbusier unveiled the Pavillon de l’Esprit Nouveau at the International Exhibition of Decorative Arts in Paris. The pavilion was originally designed as a maisonette (apartment) within his earlier 1922 studies for high rise residential blocks.
In 1988, Chuka Ihonor designed an apartment block for Barcelona Spain of which one unit was built in 1991 as the JOI House in Parkview Estate Ikoyi. It stands as a modest Modernist home on a square footprint of 10.8m by 10.8m on a small plot with a small garden. The architect, Chuka Ihonor , would later found ARG Studio. The building is a lesson in design of Modernist space and shares a plot with another, larger building.
