Sahab Tower - Pace - Architecture Engineering + Planning

Sahab Tower

Kuwait City, Kuwait

Located in the famed Salhiya Precinct, Sahab Tower is one of the modern and distinctly identifiable towers in Kuwait City. Lower floors consist of commercial space, with convenient access to the adjacent Meridien hotel and a suspended bridge connection to the Salhiya Commercial Complex. Upper floors house headquarters of major domestic and international companies.

The tower sits on two-storey podium clad in Verde Gloria Granite. The upper levels are clad with composite metal, harmonizing with the adjacent Salhiya Complex. The corners of the tower are clad with a structural glazing system. Roof top utilities are capped by an open space frame.

The office floors are designed to be column free to allow maximum flexibility of office layout options and efficient utilization of space. The floor plates are proportioned to accommodate large or small, multi-tenant configurations. The top two floors are joined by interior open stairs in support of large executive suite arrangements.

The interior design of the main entrance and public areas combines traditional Arabian designs with modern interior finishes. The entrance lobby incorporates a grand three storey atrium flanked by marble columns and delicate traditional wooden mashrabiyas. The walls are clad in high quality marble.
