UPPER HILL | CIC Plaza | U/C

KAIC Proposed HQ


PORTFOLIO:
A town is defined by constant change. To this end we conceptualised this building to dazzle the human senses and create a sense of awe as one walks through the CBD. With the greatest of ease, it will when complete stand out of its post modernist peers in the city centre.

Its sophisticated design and detailing ensures a solution that meets environmental performance by facing away the glazed area away from the sun protecting against heat gain and offering unparalleled comfort, control and cost effective use of energy. For us that forms the difference between glare and grace.

Infor: www.aaki.co.ke/portfolio

Hope to get more information soon on location and flrs..

Looking good. Thought insurance companies run to Upperhill when they think about building towers.

It will definitely have an impact on the CBD.

As always DB, seems like insurance|assuarance industry is having a roll. UAP, British America, KAIC... among others.

When completed this tower will be the toast of town..

I haven't seen any updates yet and the website seems to been on maintenance mode(Works now) but will be checking. Their also seems to be conflicting information regarding Kenya's Insurance companies umbrella body name, it could.. well may have changed.

Another beauty not built. It should also be a +30flr to impact the CBD skyline. Reminds me of Kakakuona tower in Dar

The render was replaced as you may well have noted. The first render was just the best I must admit, but atleast they are building something.
