(Initial Design Proposal)

Gulf Consult was commissioned by Kuwait Municipality for the  Design and Construction Supervision of the Kuwait Municipality  Al Shuhada Building. This new office building is to accommodate  the Minister of Public Works and Municipal Affairs, in addition  to the Director General of Kuwait Municipality and his deputies.

Gulf Consult prepared four concept designs for review with the Client, and the fourth concept was selected.

The advantages of the selected concept are the large typical floor plates which allow flexibility in building use; as well as mashrabiya and glazing design details that are reminiscent of the existing municipality buildings.

The office tower rises 34 storey’s above a seven storey car parking podium, and has been designed to accommodate 800 employees.

It includes offices, a library, auditoriums, meeting rooms, committee rooms, restaurant, and archive facilities.
