Akili Tower is a 30 storey mixed use tower in Upper Hill, Nairobi, Kenya designed by Richard Keep Architects with Henry Goss Architects. The proposed site is on the prow of the hill over looking the Uhuru Park and the Central Business District. The shape of the tower is defined by the above ground requirement for car parking which forms the 6 levels separating the lower 3 levels of retail from the upper levels offices, restaurants and residential.
The car parking is a continuous ramp around the central core. The concrete external structural shell sets up a framework for the different uses a which have a different elevation treatments, appropriate to their use.
The deck level separating the car parking and the tower above contains restaurants opening on to the large terrace and gym with views over the city.
Open plan offices occupy the next 12 floors with residential and penthouses over the top 6 floors.
