Best Commercial building project_The Courtyard_Bowman Associates
The Architect magazine has featured this project in full in a previous issue. It is a sure winner in its category. It was presented as a compact and appropriately scaled building, with pleasing proportions and sufficient detail for everyday business life. Its heart is a serene and balanced space, extraordinary for its sense of drama. This project shows that it is possible to create uplifting places in the sometimes nondescript new development zones along previously suburban streets in densifying cities across Kenya and the continent.
