Doha City Centre

Share on:

With a brief to reflect the growing spirit of Qatar and its emerging significance in regional affairs, GHD has created an exciting retail and entertainment complex of international standard.

The master plan for the multi-use City Centre project, developed with Davenport Campbell, provides almost 300,000 sq m of built-up area over five levels and facilities for 3000 car park spaces. The retail and entertainment mall provides a broad range of family-based activities – in specialty retail outlets, a hypermarket, food courts, entertainment area, a cinema complex, ice skating rink and a bowling alley.

The design team developed a distinctive glazed roof and facade system integrating fabric sail structures for protection from external elements. The need for spatial flexibility has called for clear-span space frame structures for the entertainment and cinema complex.
