Ghana Street Plaza
Retail and community space in Accra, Ghana.
Nia was contacted by a developer to develop a commercial design space, with three main programs; a restaurant, an office and a retail space in Ghana. After doing some studies and research on the social, commercial, cultural, economic, and ecological factors in Ghana, specifically Accra. We based the retail space on the concept of the Asante traditional buildings, by providing a public courtyard for the three main programmatic areas.
Positioned in the capital Accra, the Ghana Street Plaza is a public space that serves to connect a newly revitalized zone of the city. From the project’s inception, it progressed under the principle of maximizing programmatic, environmental, and ecologic variety within the site’s surroundings.
