Wafra Tower

Strategically located on Salem Al- Mubarak Street in Salmiya, the complex consists of a high-tech shopping mall and office tower. The twenty storey office tower was designed to have two curved walls facing the Arabian Gulf to achieve the maximum office space and stunning views of the Sea. The office tower is crowned by a mechanical “butterfly” structure. The shape of the shopping mall podium creates an eye-catching landmark on the main commercial street.
The podium consists of two unique forms. The first part of the Podium is facing Salem Al-Mubarak Street and is the main entrance of the shopping mall and resembles a big sea urchin shell. The smooth blue external surface consists of a Lexan heat-formed panel to follow the curve with external steel bolts at the corners. The interior is a combination of a triangular shaped fabric and architectural mesh in white metal colors. The second part of the podium faces the Arabian Gulf Street and is similar in form with soft edges. The surface of this form is covered by Titanium blue-silver metal composite panels. The two main entrances leading to the complex via public parking are enhanced by special water features and bridges.
