Quatalum Steel Factory - Qatar
Qatalum is the biggest aluminum factory in the world. The richness of the project was reflected in the design: the square, symbol of purity and complete harmony. The pattern created was squares within squares that repeat themselves to infinity reflecting the splendor of the space.
We worked on five main buildings and their surrounding landscapes: administration, service center, workshop, mosque and guardian house .
Every building was studied as an independent entity only linked by the repetition of the pattern and the transparency of the huge open spaces, creating an ambiance of freedom and richness.
International standards were applied in order to meet the requirements of the building code and construction in Qatar.
We also used the pattern to define the passages and the facades, linking them together in an innovative way. A modern and simple approach was used for the rest of the building in order to highlight that pattern in a subtle way.
