Al Sharq is the way forward in terms of defining a new architecture for Kuwait.

The Al Sharq office building quietly pursues a rigorous sustainability agenda. A shallow plan office floor plate with heavily shaded facades reduces the tower’s environmental footprint and provides an internal environment with extremely high levels of occupant comfort, flooded with diffuse natural light.

The 180m tower will cover an area of 56,400sq.m and combines work and leisure, internal and outside spaces, and offers a variety of scenarios for business within a sustainable and environmentally responsible design.

The stunning design is conceived as a pairing of parallel blades from which office spaces are hung. At ground floor level, the glass-fronted entrance and shop fronts are set back in a shaded arcade. The podium hovers above and, on its roof, restaurants and shops are set amid a sky garden.

Even the Al Sharq’s lowest level of office space is high enough for panoramic views. At the top of the tower a variety of uses include an executive gym, health club, spa and swimming pool.

Planted sky gardens are strategically placed to offer respite from western sun, and providing a place at selected office levels where people can step outside, to rest and think.
