Dutch designer Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) has unveiled its concept for a residential project for Kuwait City’s waterfront.
The Wafra tower is made up of five twisted blocks, which OMA says maximises lower floor occupancy, and allows units to have views of both the seafront and the city.
The stepped blocks create terraces for each floor that can contain community space.
The project’s street-level plinth will house a lobby with lounge areas and co-working spaces. The tower will contain one, two and three bedroom apartments as well as penthouses.
OMA worked with Kuwait-based consultant Pace as a local partner on the project.
Construction on the development is due to start at the end of 2020.
