Award Entry

A spectacular piece of sculpture in the heart of the old town 

Located on a prime waterfront site along the Doha Corniche, this contemporary project is one of the latest landmarks in this city's rapidly emerging skyline. The development consists of a 7-storey high linearly arranged office block anchored by a 15-storey residential tower. The massing of the project is a direct response to the development's proximity to the water.

Abstract building forms, clad in polished and honed black granite, cantilever dramatically over a reflective pool. A sky-lit atrium featuring internal landscaped gardens traverses horizontally between the office blocks and folds up into the residential tower. Internally, public and private spaces are designed to allow natural light and provide views out to the bay.
