Michael Gebhart FAIA, Boston, USA
(Architectural Concept / Schematic Design)

Gulf Consult, in association with Michael Gebhart Architects AIA, who provided the architectural concept and schematic design input, were awarded First Prize in a competition for the design of this office complex. Following this we were commissioned to undertake Design, Interior Design and Construction Supervision, for the whole project.

The Headquarters Complex consists of the main office building, a multi-purpose building, a mosque, sunken garden and a car park building, located on the main road leading into Ahmadi.

The office building has a circular atrium with ample public spaces, panoramic elevators and ceremonial staircases. Offices are located on the first and second floors.

Training rooms, cafeteria and other support services are placed in the basement. The board room and VIP lounge have been located at the top floor level.
