PROJECT OVERVIEW

  • Total Plot Area: 6,595 sqm
  • Built Up Area: 6,696 sqm
  • Floors: G+1

We interpreted the vision of the museum into creating an oasis for inspiration and creativity. The museum provides the opportunity to uncover the layers of the artwork’s character/identity and offer an insight into the artists that created them. The building is inspired by local elements like Muqarnas, Lightwell, and Barjeels.

  • The building volume has been carved to guide and welcome visitors to its doors, they will then pass by a contemporary form of the Muqarnas as a Symbolic for the creativity and a transition to a different experience.
  • Based on the concept of the Barjeel which was used to cool down the social space in the house, an outdoor space is created with an orientation to the Dominant wind direction and a shaded water feature.
  • Finally, the light wells concept allows for a diffused indirect sunlight, we created a skylight which serves as the function of the art exhibition.
