Allford Hall Monaghan Morris wins Ghanaian scheme

  • Comment
Allford Hall Monaghan Morris (AHMM) has won its first commission outside Europe in a competition to design a mixed-use scheme in Accra, Ghana.

The scheme is for developer Trasacco Estates Development Corporation (TEDC) which is headed up by Ian Morris, a former student of AHMM directors Simon Allford and Paul Monaghan.

The project, thought to cost in the region of £40 million, includes a 75-bed private hospital, a 100-room boutique hotel, 10,000m2 of flexible office space and 60 200m2 courtyard apartments.

AHMM worked with DSDHA and healthcare specialist Tangram Architects on the scheme, which according to AHMM 'knits together the scale and programmes of the various sites into a strong masterplan'.

Senior AHMM architect, Ross Hutchinson, who led the scheme in Ghana, said it was hoped the prestigious project would 'reverse the Ghanaians' 'brain drain' and attract those that have left the country'.

He said: 'This is a landmark project for TEDC, Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, the design team and most importantly Accra. It's fantastic to be working in this fast-developing country on a pioneering scheme that will become a benchmark for future developments in both Ghana and Africa.'
