HOK designs new mall in Doha

Marina Mall takes a bold step forward in the creation of a modern shopping complex. Inspired by forms generated when water erodes stone, five smooth sculptural masses are enclosed by simple transparent membrane to create a space which is both fantastic and sleek. The enclosed spaces flow one into the other as if the complex was formed by the ebb and flow of the gulf. Made possible by recent innovations in building and design technology, the design represents a distinctly low tech desire to attract, delight and comfort. While purposefully trying to appear free form, the massing is crafted to mitigate solar gain, the massing designed to overhang and shading the enclosing plane of glazing.

A warm rich material palette along the ground plane compliments the sculptural purity of the massing. The white FRP (Fibre-reinforced Polymer) shell and blue tinted glazing enclose abstracted natural areas of water, rock and planting which flow through the central axis. The landscape treatment flows seamlessly out into the surrounding context, blurring the distinction between interior to exterior space. Sculptural pods embedded in the landscape are designed to animate the public realm between the main complex and the adjacent marina.

Located on the east coast of Qatar, approximately 15 km north of Doha City Centre, Marina Mall is situated within the Lusail Development. Comprising 37 sq km of waterfront, subdivided into 19 integrated and diverse mixed-use districts, the plan’s vision is to create a vibrant, community-oriented lifestyle offering the best in modern urban living. HOKs challenge was to create an inspiring design, embodying the vision and ethos of the new city. The mall, which totals 72,000 sq m of leasable area, includes three levels, with an additional 10,000 sq m hypermarket at basement level. The complex includes cinemas, restaurants with terraced dining overlooking the marina, and spa facilities.

Status: Concept design

Media Headquarter Doha

Architect: BIG
Status: Competition
Size: 653 700m2

A Community Under One Roof. Media at its core is about communication between people. The Media Headquarters Building is designed to maximize the interaction between staff, visitors
and audience under one common roof. A single tensile canopy spans between the two towers covering a vertical village of newsrooms and broadcast studios.

The Qatar Media Headquarters will form a framework for international broadcasting grounded in the specific culture and place of Doha Qatar, reflecting the core elements that
characterize the Media HQ. At the intersection of the contemporary media and the heritage of Qatar’s rich culture we have explored innovative uses of traditional architectural elements.
We have been inspired by the bazaars, the tiled ceramic roofs and the architectural use of textiles indigenous to the Arab world. The archetypal character of the Media HQ building makes
it a timeless icon capable of accommodating and projecting the ever changing needs of a dynamic and lively media organization of today. Both a landmark and a communal space the
Media Headquarter Building will become the heart of the entire media city attracting people from near and far. Several institutions framing a single forum. Two squares forming a
single landmark.

Qatar Railways Company (Qatar Rail) marks another milestone with the unveiling of the Doha Metro and Lusail Tram designs. The disclosure of the exterior designs of the upcoming railway vehicles, 'Al Faras' for the Doha Metro and 'Al Mehmel' for the Lusail tram will give the public a glimpse of what the new systems will look like when they open in 2020.
