Agodi Gardens is a park in Ibadan, Oyo Province, Nigeria. We were part of the professional team led by consultants Earthworks Landscape Architects, in a programme to re-develop the park. As infill to the broader scope of work, which included large re-planted areas, clearing and re-opening natural waterways, walkways and pedestrian bridges, open picnic areas and a waterpark with slides and pools, we provided architectural services for the buildings within the park. This included the entrance building with food courts and outdoor covered seating areas, ablution buildings and the pool area entrance and change room building.

The buildings structural type is hybrid timber and blockwork. The food court has a glass and timber post and beam facade, with the kitchens and service areas built of concrete blockwork. Floating roofs, supported on tree-like structural posts provide shade and shaded filtered light to the outdoor seated areas.

Knysna

This project was done with Tracey and Donald Brink while I was a partner at Tradon Architects & Consultants       in Knysna.

The predominant structural material used was SA Pine, with roughsawn ‘wany edge’ planks used for the external cladding. An exception to this was the bathroom areas to the cabins, which were built on concrete foundations with stone clad brick walls.

The wany edge boards were ‘as they come’ from the sawmill, without any planing or finishing, giving a rough bush lodge feel to the exterior. The interiors were however, finely detailed and finished, to provide sleek and luxurious accomodation.
