West Bay Complex
Design Aesthetic Inspired by Cultural Heritage
The West Bay Complex is a mixed use development along the Corniche in Doha, Qatar near the Qatar International Exhibition Center and Diplomatic District. The central feature is a Four Seasons Resort Hotel and Club that features a grand lobby, club spa, restaurants, a ballroom, meeting rooms, a business center, and porte-cochere. Other components of the complex include a 30 story office building, two 20 story luxury residential towers, townhomes and a marina. All facilities are linked by landscaped pedestrian walkways.
The project is themed around classic indigenous Qatari architecture. Significant research was undertaken to find and understand those architectural elements that were unique to Qatar. The resulting building designs, detailing and material palette reflect Qatar’s architectural heritage on a commercial scale.
