Thumbnail Placeholder

Short Description

COBA Group developed, for GAMEK, the Architectural Design for a Design-and-Build Tender of the Chicapa II Hydropower Development.

This Design sought the integration of the whole area of the Powerplant building, as well as the Substation’s platform, in the surrounding landscape, thus optimizing its topographic relation with the levels defined for the operation of the Hydropower Development.

Due to its presence in the landscape where it is set, the Powerplant building was subject to a detailed development in the architectural design, by integrating its functional organization with the façade, exterior arrangements and respective access roads.

GAMEK Building - Luanda | Angola

Thumbnail Placeholder

Short Description

COBA Group developed the Preliminary Study of the architectural design of GAMEK’s new facilities (GAMEK – Gabinete de Aproveitamento do Médio Kwanza [Cabinet of Middle Kwanza River Development]).

This Project embodies an opportunity of partial requalification of the Luanda’s urban landscape with its cosmopolitan habits.

It is based on this assumption that its functional organization aims at a new occupation of the GAMEK building, graphically represented in the form of an architectural study for the conception of an office building, shopping galleries and the corresponding reorganisation of the enveloping public area, comprising an underground parking lot.
