Just Beachy

Afro-minimalism best defines a beautiful new beach pavilion designed by Nigerian architect, Tosin Oshinowo. Situated on the island of Ilashe in Lagos, it represents an oasis of tranquillity outside of the hustle and bustle of the inner city. Oshinowo’s dream-like structure employs clean, elegant lines that do not detract from the dramatic views of the crystalline pool and the Atlantic Ocean. Designed for a private client, the Coral Pavilion’s subtle hues are easy on the eye – the floating coral-pink pool deck contrasts with the golden-yellow beach sand, and the olive-green accents in the furniture pick up the shades of surrounding palm trees. Cooled by a constant breeze, the pavilion’s tasteful living room is also an open space that invites the elements in.

We are committed to Africa

Unlike many global publications, for nearly a decade we have been committed to showing a complete picture of Africa – not just a single story.  Offended by one-sided coverage of wars, disasters and disease, the founders of Africa.com created a website that provides a balanced view of Africa – current events, business, arts & culture, travel, fashion, sports, information, development, and more.
