Our History

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.

The Firm

Our vision at ATO Architects is global.  We have always been at the cutting edge of project and service delivery, especially using every tool that information and technological advancements avail us.  We continue to strive to provide the very best architectural and management services promptly, accurately and professionally, and deliver these services better every time.

With a solid operational base in Nigeria, ATO Architects is also registered to practice in the United Kingdom and in South Africa.  We have been invited to submit proposals for a number of key developments in Cameroun, Ghana and Liberia and besides Nigeria, have completed projects in South Africa and in the Republic of Benin.

The range of project types that we have designed and managed to completion is very broad and includes work in Oil and Gas, Aviation, Education, Ecclesiastical, Banking and Finance, Corporate development, Hospitality, Healthcare, Recreation, Residential and Housing, Commercial and Retail.

In our bid to provide the very best architectural services to our clients, ATO Architects Limited has formed bilateral professional partnerships across borders with architectural firms in the United States, Egypt and France to compete for work on an international level. In 2010, partnering with a firm of architects from Louisiana, USA, we created the winning entry on a major design competition for an international oil and gas conglomerate.

We are confident of our ability to offer our services to individuals and corporations in other countries either in our own capacity or as part of a multidisciplinary group and are also proud of our proven ability to represent international firms locally on selected projects.

At the core of everything we do is the visualization of possibilities along with Our Clients and helping them turn possibility into reality.  We recognize at all times our corporate responsibility to always help to protect the environment and do not take this lightly.

In 1994, we sought to improve our design services by implementing a Total Quality Management System. In 2018, we received our ISO 9001:2015 certification from Bureau Veritas. We are now working towards implementing ISO 19650:2018 standards for BIM.

"We received ISO 9001:2015 certification on the 4th of March, 2019."

Green Architecture & Sustainable Development

We’ve been providing sustainable solutions for residential as well as commercial buildings since the early 1990s.  Most of our work has been carried out in the tropics, and we employ the basic principles of building design and orientation to maximize ventilation through buildings and minimize solar radiation.  This ensures that our buildings are comfortable and are not energy-hungry.  Most of our building materials can be locally sourced.  We have a LEED Accredited Professional on our staff and are currently doing projects where LEED and Sustainable considerations are a requirement of the Clients.

Architectural Design & Project Management

Architecture is at the core of our business.  We have had the unique privilege of designing a wide range of building and facility types.  We consider our style to be eclectic and highly responsive to the requirements of the client.

Our designs are well-tailored to create the best possible design solutions. From small single-family residences to multi-hectare multiple-use complexes, estates and facilities, we are careful to pay attention to the unique requirements of each client, for each project, at each location, each time.

OUR PARTNERS

Design Philosophy

ATO’s design philosophy is influenced by his initial training at Manchester School of Architecture (then polytechnic) for which the Victorian Eclecticism was very apparent in the context of the school at Manchester.

The early work of the firm was geared towards satisfying the needs of new financial & banking institutions, for which the stylized neo-classical and post-modern were the vogue. Most of ATO Architects, later schemes have been eclectic, and largely influenced by the client’s requirements, site, materials and environmental constraints. Having said this, the firm has explored a variety of solutions to problems brought to bear by these constraints.

In tackling a range of building types our philosophy of exploiting and experimenting with materials have yielded dividends in some of our design solutions. We have exploited structural systems not readily used in the West African environment and continued to focus on developing these systems.

The firm has concluded several solutions over the years with a unique aesthetic.

The firm has built a reputation for providing competitive services for our clients, most of who have been continually serviced by us for many years by producing multiple buildings.

Our design philosophy is to provide workable, aesthetically pleasing solutions to a myriad of simple and complex design problems and clients’ requirements in order to create flexible, environmentally sensitive, functional and cost-effective buildings and spaces. Our design style is somewhat eclectic as we strive to achieve uniqueness on each project.

We have a unique understanding of the dynamics of various scenarios honed over 32 years of consistent hard work and service delivery. We have a talented and well -trained firm of architects and are confident of exceeding your expressed expectations.
