Looking at the lovely smooth lines and comfortable color combination, you can think of ACCL (Adeniyi Coker Consultants Limited), and you’ll be right because this is the team of architects that stands behind Folorunsho Alakija’s mansion in Lagos.
The impressive white mansion is believed to cost more than 70 million U.S. dollars (according to nairaland.com, blog.jiji.ng, and other sources). However, as for now, it is unclear whether the project is a single or multi-residence.

Firstly, there are swimming pools inside and outside. Secondly, there is an impressive glass-fenced garage for luxurious vehicles. Thirdly, if you need to get to the 4th floor, you can take an elevator that goes through the glass-pipe which is transparent and gives you impressive views of the house.
At last but not the least, several TVs are built into the floor (they are covered with high-quality glass so no one will break the screens or damage themselves). You hardly will find something similar in other houses of the Nigerian celebrities and wealthy people.
