Hello there…

Do you ever search online for certain information that can help you with your schoolwork but any information you lay your hands on is missing that Nigerian factor? That little piece of information that can make studio life way easier, or make studying courses more interesting and make you want to pick up your notes and study?

I was part of the pioneer set of architecture students in my school. I was once in your shoes. That feeling of not knowing where to turn to in your time of need. The hours of going through the internet not knowing exactly what to search to help you find what you’re looking for. This is why I started Quif Studio, an architectural blog where architecture students in Nigeria can get all the help they need to get through those long harsh hours of studio work and bulky courses.

This blog is dedicated to providing you with tips and tricks that will help improve your abilities and motivate you to be the best that you can be. It would be my pleasure to see you turn into an amazing architect in the future. So, refill your pencils, grab your set squares and stay tuned for more updates.
