The new building for the Nubuke Foundation will provide additional spaces for artists, curators and visitors to engage with, whilst allowing the institution to become a civic hub in the growing network of cultural spaces in Accra and the region. It sits opposite the existing building framing a central garden with Nubuke’s Indian almond tree at its focus.

The two-storey reinforced concrete structure is partially raised and sits on four rotated reinforced concrete walls. The entire building is based on bored piles.
