Sencillo meaning simple in Spanish is the name given to a stylish minimalist private beach house on the Island of Ilashe in Lagos Nigeria. Situated on a serene beach front which can only be accessed by water travel Sencillo offers a respite from the bustling traffic heavy city of Lagos. As such the architectural design of the property reflects the desire for a calming retreat with captivating views of the Atlantic Ocean.
Centred around a crystal-clear pool that reflects the colour of the sky the beach house features a series of inter-connected spaces designed to accommodate differing guest sizes from couples to larger family gatherings. Sencillo was designed by local architecture firm cmDesign Atelier who devised a neutral minimalist style that complements the surrounding area. The building was constructed with mainly locally sourced materials such as cedar wood and concrete.
The all white exterior heightens the feeling of serenity and provides a backdrop to elegant rose-gold steel screens featuring a cutout pattern based on traditional Yoruba Adire fabric designs. Not just decorative the screens also provide privacy and help reduce glare from the sun.
Available for private hire the beach house comprises 3 ocean view bedrooms, a private lounge, dining area, jacuzzi, kitchen, and onsite concierge amongst other offerings.
