Award Entry

KEO International Consultants design BARWA’s prestigious Financial District Project in Doha, Qatar 

The 375 000 sq m project has an outer ring of 6 office towers ascending in a clockwise direction from 20 to 35 story’s in height. The 4 inner ring of towers, comprising of 3 office towers and a hotel tower, ascends in a counter-clockwise direction from 31 to 50 storys in height. The placement of the 9 office towers and their opposing movement of heights help maintain maximum views as well as ensuring that all the buildings have access to natural light.

The plaza at the main retail level will be open to air and lined with restaurants and cafes. The axis from the main street to the northeastern corner of the site culminates with the Prayer Hall providing geometric order to the development.

The towers clad in glass and terracotta emerges from a solid plinth of clad in travertine stone. The facades of the project juxtapose the natural materials of terracotta and stone with man made materials of glass and metal screens.
