Al Wakrah

Location: Qatar

 

@StrideTreglown. A competetive bid to the Qatari Government for the  regeneration of a 5km stretch of unused waterfront south of Doha. The brief was to create a new place within a town that largely turned its back to the waterfront.

 

Our proposals included nearly 20 million square metres of mixed use development including homes, hotels, retail and leisure quarter, beach resorts, watersports centre, hotels and a golf course. A key desire was to link the site to the local football stadium inland - to be one of the WC2022 venues.

 

We used sketch masterplans as well as high quality CGI images to convey an exciting new quarter that boasted tourist as well as a significant cultural and residential quarter.
