Gulf International Bank Headquarters
Manamah, Bahrain
The project contains the headquarters for a prominent international bank, built on a site overlooking the sea in the business center of Manama. The free-standing tower comprises public banking facilities on three floors and offices on the above nine. The massing of these upper floors cantilevers out from the lower mass. The external facades are distinguished by prominent vertical bays which incorporate aluminium screening devices and reflective glass to provide protection from the sun. The steel frame structure is clad in travertine.
