Built along Valley Road, Nairobi, The AEA Plaza is a 10-Storey Office building with eloquent, bold, and brightly painted facades. The Association of Evangelicals in Africa (AEA) tasked Triad Architects with the brief to design an office building to serve as their Africa Head-quarters as well as grow their cashflow, through leasing of space to sister organizations and the general public.
AEA Plaza provides 650 square meters of lettable area on each of its 10 floors. The Floors are characterized by picturesque views of the Nairobi City below. Moreover, the building stands alone in the premises, free from surrounding buildings, shadows, or obstacles. This gives the building an advantage of enjoying natural lighting and ventilation.
Completed in 2019, it provides 100 outdoor car parking slots, a backup generator, firefighting systems, rainwater & council water storage tanks and 2No. modern lifts that are automatically linked to the fire evacuation system.
The building takes advantage of its natural site, with the floor to ceiling curtain walling windows creating a subtle transition from the outside to the inside on the lower floors making users one with nature.
