Department of Petroleum Resources Headquarters, Abuja


The Department of Petroleum Resources needed a befitting setting for workplace productivity. As a hub of resources for a nation such as Nigeria, the Organisation needed an erection that is not only durable, functional and modern but equally timeless in its existence- this is it.

Like a barrel of crude oil of yore (in figurative terms) emerged a form that shaped the Building’s iconic –image, while also serving the dual purpose of protecting the main façade from direct sunrays based on analysis of the sun-path-diagram. Looking for an Oil barrel that stands a façade? well, this is it.
