A stunning and stylish entrance at The Piano in Nairobi

The Piano is a strategically positioned commercial building along Brookside Drive in Westlands (Nairobi) offering rental spaces for offices, showrooms, restaurants, and other activities. The building comprises an impressive modern sixteen-storey retail and office development with a total gross lettable area of approximately 136,137 sq.ft and was completed in Q2 of 2022.

The main issue to be solved was to provide a pedestrian entrance control system to be integrated with access control and visitor management systems while maintaining the highest levels of aesthetics. The customer needed a reliable product in terms of performance and, at the same time, an elegant and unique design to blend into the modern interior designs of the reception area. The customizable colors of mWing gates created a blend and harmony in the entrance hall colour scheme. A Key requirement was the aspect of consideration for the physically challenged which we met customer requirements by providing a specific wide lane for wheelchair users.

Specifically in this location, we have installed two standard lanes (600mm) and a wide lane (900mm).
