Kuwait Financial Tower

Manama, Bahrain

Client: ETEC
Status: Concept Design 2008

The project is located in the prestigious diplomatic district of Manama. One part of the building provides residents with great views of the city through curved glazing, while flamed grey granite and polished black granite, play on chromatic contrasts and add a crisp finish to the overall appearance. Planted trees at different levels of the 47-storey tower create suspended gardens that soften the building’s impact on its surroundings. The last two levels, being a public space, are expressed through more creative forms consisting of an organic shaped metallic structure.
