A Nautilus Inspired Mixed-Use Development

Qatar Petroleum District

Doha, Qatar

Qatar Petroleum (QP) District, formerly known as Barwa Financial District Project, is a mega, integrated mixed-use development with a built area of over 500,000 sqm

QP District is an award-winning project designed and engineered by KEO. It comprises 9 office towers, a 5-star hotel (25 levels, 409 keys), an elevated and underground carpark, mosque, data center, auditorium, its own substation, and a central cooling plant.

Two nautilus forms spiraling in opposing directions create a dynamic flow of mass and space. The opposing geometry builds up the movement of the towers to create the pinnacle at the southwest corner of the site, creating a landmark building visible from both the West Bay area and the main road arteries west of the site. There is an outer ring of 6 office towers ascending in a clockwise direction from 18 to 32 stories

The inner ring of 4 towers, comprising of 3 office towers and a hotel, ascend in a counter- clockwise direction from 27 to 47 stories. The placement of the 9 office towers and their opposing spiral heights provide unparalleled views and ensure that all the buildings have access to natural light.

KEO provided full multi-disciplinary services.
This included construction phase services as the construction manager and supervising consultant meeting the many challenges of the 1,000m2 heavily congested inner-city site. KEO exercised the role that of the Engineer under a FIDIC based contract until handing over.
