Cost estimation services
This mega development is a high end mixed use project in the heart of Kuwait City. The office tower and hotel development is supported by a parking structure with a capacity of 1,557 vehicles and an overall area of 60,000 sq. m. The geometry of the wood shading fins covers multiple building façades, creating a strong, visual distinction from neighboring buildings, while enhancing climatic performance for the occupied spaces. The new 250-room Four Seasons Hotel will feature two large ballrooms, an expansive pool-level terrace, three restaurants, and world-class spa and fitness facilities.
The Hotel Tower accommodates guest rooms and high-end suites of various sizes depending on the final room mix. The hotel will have 250 Keys. The Hotel Tower, with the core on one end, will provide adequate privacy from the neighboring office building. The design concept is based on regional architectural tradition, resulting in a contextual building that successfully represents the Four Seasons brand, as well as the local environment. Composed of three distinct buildings including an office tower, hotel tower and podium, the development is unified by a traditional Arabian carved wood latticework window treatment that offers significant solar control and air circulation.
