Amwaj Island
Muharraq, Bahrain
The man-made Amwaj Islands are rising from the sea as a fully fledged tourist destination just eight kilometres from Bahrain Airport. The main island’s attractions include luxury hotels and residential and commercial high-rise buildings. The other three islands are devoted to golf and equestrian pursuits, an aquapark and a children’s theme park. This architect was involved in the masterplanning and in the design of the Meena 7 condominium towers and two waterfront developments: Saraya Al Bahar and Floating City. 'Local architectural language was a reference in the treatment of facades' throughout. The construction is concrete.
