Project Info

Gulf Consult in association with Cambridge Seven Associates, Inc. of Boston have been commissioned by the Kuwait University Construction Program to undertake the Study, Design and Supervision of the College of Business at the new Sabah Al-Salem University City Campus.

The College of Business is being designed for a total of 4,000 students divided between the female and male campuses. It will house eight major departments including: Accounting; Economics; Finance & Financial Institutions; Management; Marketing; Quantitative Methods; Information Systems and Public Administration.

The Architectural Concept Design for the College is based on the main building wrapping around a large central garden as the major public space or ‘College Agora’.

The building itself is wedge shaped in plan and spirals up about its interior public space, stepping vertically from three to six levels, and maximizing views to the internal and external spaces. The building massing is lifted above a recessed ground level, providing shade around the buildings perimeter.  

The college has been designed to comply with a LEED Silver rating.
