Project: Social Security HQ, Kuwait    

The complex is located at one of the most important approaches into Kuwait City and provides the opportunity of creating a striking landmark at the junction of Soor Street and Al Mubarak Street as a gateway into the downtown business area of the city.

The Concept:
The headquarters building rises dramatically as two shimmering reflective triangular sails linked by a ten-storey atrium. The sails accommodate the administrative offices of the various departments. The atrium provides convenient communication links between departments and creates an imposing entrance into the complex. The ground floor of the atrium contains the visitors Dealing Hall. Special staff amenities, the health and social club, kindergarten and seminar hall are accommodated within the landscaped podium, planned around a series of shaded gardens.

Car parking for staff and visitors is provided in two levels of basement under the whole of the development.
