A new vision for the work environment

beginning in the company's array of plans and is considered to be a
technical masterpiece that will add splendor and beauty to the Doha
Corniche upon the end of the work in it."
Al Hitmi Office Building is a showcase of architectural
innovation. The landmark project looks like a spectacular piece of
art in the heart of Doha Corniche, Qatar. The design is inspired by
imagery of stone formations cantilevered over a body of
water, which metaphorically links the site to the Arabian Gulf.
The Building is designed with a huge glass atrium, the biggest
man-made lake and water features in Doha, refreshing landscapes and
a roof garden. The massing is clad with dark tinted glass and
polished and textured natural stones and ceramic tiles which create
a mosaic of horizontal layers. The overall effect portrays the
massing as a monolithic block suspended over water.
This high-quality commercial building complex is divided into
two wings. The east wing comprises two basements, a ground floor, a
transfer level, six rentable office floors and a roof garden.

imagination as the interior lights dim as workers leave the
