Redefining A New Relationship Between Space & Esthetic

What We Do


Our Portfolio is one big international experience



We are a studio focused on creating, developing and designing both new and existing spaces.

Who We Are
FAA Designs was conceived and operating in Paris since 2008 before opening the main branch in Lagos in 2015.  The primary motivation for our move to Nigeria was the conviction that it is now possible to do things differently.

Through a critical approach and a total embrace of the context, we can rediscover new ways.

It is a matter of questioning what we use and why we use certain materials or tools to create our environment.

How We Work 

Through punctual partnerships within a network of valuable professionals, FAA Designs focuses on offering the best proposals. This allows a variation of results, relevance and efficiency in answers.

The specific requirements of the site, program and client needs are fully integrated, hence each project evolves as an unique exploration of its own rather than reflecting a predetermined architectural or design style. We strongly believe that the design of details is the secret for the best realization and an optimal design and cost control.


It is time to redefine a new relationship between space and esthetics
