Project Info

This facility is considered an international center for research into diabetes, as well as positioning Kuwait to be a leader in the prevention and treatment of this disease.

This six storey building includes medical and health facilities, re­search lab​o­ra­to­ries, re­search library, fitness center, au­di­to­ri​um and ad­min­is­trative department.

Gulf Con­sult, in association with NBBJ of USA, has de­signed this building to have a strong vis​u​al form which takes its in­spi­ration from the sea.

This building fea­tures a variety of fen­es­tration types :

  1. Recessed windows on the south for shading and increased thermal resistance.
  2. A solid precast wall on the east and west side to break away from views of the adjacent properties.
  3. A curved curtain wall facade on the north facing the ocean will afford employees with panoramic views.
