The strikingly beautiful building has become synonymous with Bahrain. Its cool colours and sleek aesthetics create an ultra-modern backdrop, against which global corporations, luxury brands, and five-star hospitality meet architectural ingenuity and flair.
The Bahrain WTC has an intelligent and environmentally responsive design. Enough buffer spaces have been incorporated between the external environment and air-conditioned spaces to reduce solar gain on the building. High-quality solar glasses used with a low-shading coefficient reduce the air temperature of the building. Balconies to the sloping elevations with overhangs also provide appropriate shading. The opaque fabric elements of the building are given enhanced thermal insulation.
