Completed in 2009, with built up area of 121,925m² this edifice adorns Doha’s cityscape while reflecting in the waters of Arabian Gulf.
Located in the elite West Bay area of Doha, this $190 million state of the art property is operated by internationally renowned hospitality group Kempinski. This aluminum-clad tower has 62 levels that offer spectacular views from its shimmering glazed curtain walling. At 252 meters high this tower is the tallest operating tower in Qatar to date.
The design team’s vision for Kempinski Residences and Suites tower is based on exploration of scale, shape and proportion of the traditional “Wind Tower”. This tower is the only structure in Qatar whose footprint is based on a simple square. Incorporating mathematical proportions and notions of the wind tower, this building makes a unique landmark and one of a kind structure that dominates other structures surrounding it.
