    Hotel Park, Doha, Qatar landscape design children around fountain

    An urban refuge of green planes and waterscapes in the heart of Doha, evokes Qatar’s natural environment of dunes and wadis.

    Covering four stories of underground parking in one of the Worlds’ biggest ‘green roofs’ are extensive gardens, play areas, shaded seating areas and cycle paths that promote outdoor living across 7 hectares.

     

    Green spaces increase thermal comfort in a harsh urban atmosphere. Hotel Park is up to 10° cooler than non-treed areas in Doha’s centre.

    Museum of Islamic Art, Doha, Qatar

    I.M. Pei’s iconic art museum bridges Islamic history and Doha’s urban growth. 

    The Museum of Islamic Art in Doha is a stunning space that showcases an extensive range of art and artefacts from the Islamic world, offering conservation displays and immersive exhibitions. Set on an island off a peninsula, the Museum is composed of two cream coloured limestone buildings connected across a central courtyard and encircled by an informal park.

     

    The landmark building draws influences from ancient Islamic architecture, a theme that is extended throughout Cracknell’s landscape design which links the Museum to Doha Harbour. The surrounding park includes seating and relaxation areas, a function lawn and dynamic waterfront promenade providing framed views of the Museum.
