About ATO Architects

Getting to know who we are

The Beginning.

ATO Architects started out in 1987 on the back of a winning entry in a design competition for the squash court complex of one of the oldest clubs in Nigeria, Ikoyi Club 1938. The firm went on to prove herself by winning a string of other competitive bids for work, the most recent of which is the 17-storey, 3-tower headquarter building for the Federal Inland Revenue Service at Abuja.

In 1996, it became incorporated as A.T.Onajide Architects Limited and subsequently ATO Architects Limited.
