The peak of Kilimani, along Valley Road, Kenya is no longer silent since the completion of THE AEA PLAZA, a 10-Storey Office building . As you drive along Valley Road from the CBD of Nairobi, the new building strikes you with its eloquent language giving it clarity amongst its austere neighbors.
Its bold and brightly painted facades reflect light, warmth and high spirits in the Kilimani area, a testament to its ecumenical inspirations. 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.
