Al Bidda Tower, Doha

A gem in the crowded Doha skyline: the Al Bidda Tower is the first of many such landmark buildings being constructed on Doha’s waterfront esplanade.

GHD completed the design – from the initial concept to the final development – and it conforms to exceptional standards of aesthetics, quality and excellence. Among the features incorporated into the tower are elevations derived from the concept of a tornado. The design creates a unique twist in the tower that gives the impression of dynamic movement. Al Bidda is much like a sculpture with its glass façade. It will shine in the Gulf sunlight, presenting a different appearance from each angle of observation.

The façade is formed from the utilisation of an unconventional diagonal curtain wall, which accommodates varying floor plates and results in an elegant waisted-type spiralling façade that culminates with an illuminated chamfered roof.

The tower includes business centres, showrooms, restaurants, art galleries, an outdoor café, a health club and a seven-storey car park, which will have direct underground access to the tower, the design of which complements the unique diagonal elements of the tower.
