Information Communication Technological based shopping facilities provides the public with an exclusive ICT shopping arena. User experience has also been evaluated in other public spaces from schools, recreational centres and other version of these spaces but has been scarcely evaluated in terms of ICT facilities. Although these facilities are provided with the required circulation components to promote usability, these human activity hubs must be evaluated based on their supply of a pleasant user experience and circulation characteristics. This is critical in order to give information on the expanding corpus of architectural users' experiences, particularly in critical architectural components like circulation. The aim of this study is to evaluate circulation elements and their influences on users' experience with a view to design an ICT complex in Lagos State, Nigeria that will enhance free flow movement of users and services within the facility. It attempted to do this by examining the current circulation systems within ICT facilities, investigating user experiences within ICT complexes, assessing the link between circulation characteristics and user experiences, and incorporating these findings into the suggested design. The selected study area for this project is computer village, Ikeja, Lagos Nigeria. The design proposal is sited on a land along Lekki-Ajah express road. The study is a descriptive quantitative and qualitative research and it evaluates spatial circulation and user experience in some selected ICT complexes at computer village, Ikeja. In order to choose users and gather data, a census sampling method was utilized. They were analyzed and displayed in tables and figures using the Statistical Program for Social Sciences. The findings show that environmental variables have a major effect on user experience and that circulation systems play a significant role in affecting user experience in ICT complexes. These findings were integrated into the proposed design.
