Carbone Building
Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire

The Carbone building is an investment property made of three floors above ground with an underground parking space naturally ventilated by an areaway. Its design meets the standards of an office-type building by simple principles of spacial organization. The construction system chosen for this building is that of the pole beam structure, allowing the creation of open-plan office floors. The structure principle and materials choice allow for the production of a building with traditional construction materials. The architectural statement and the simplicity of the materials used provide the building with a sense of urbanity where design and functionality blend to create a geometrically pure and dynamic architecture, reflective of a new modernity.
