Oshinowo Studio is an architectural, urban and interior design practice based in Lagos, Nigeria.

Our extensive, international portfolio includes individual houses, pavilions, commercial and cultural venues, community housing, and large-scale humanitarian projects.

We believe in human-centred design to meet cultural and climatic needs – at its core, our work is about improving the ways people live. Drawing on traditional craft and material palettes from West Africa and beyond, our designs are as instinctive as they are sustainable.

A wide array of built projects alongside contributions to the international architectural stage, informs a practice that sustains style and environment in equal measure.

In Lagos we experience the full complexities of a rapidly urbanising continent. One of the new global, urban frontiers, the city affords us a unique insight into the metropolis of the future Oshinowo Studio was formed in 2013 by architect and curator Tosin Oshinowo. After completing her studies in London, Tosin worked in Europe before returning to her native Lagos. Her perspective on design though rooted in West Africa, shaped by Yoruba culture, calibrates regional approaches to global social and environmental challenges.
