Mapping of Beirut roofscapes, past and future uses
Join us for a screening and drinks on our own roof on Monday June 25 from 7 to 10 pm
Being since its inception the lead architect behind the original vision and the full design for the Doha Oasis Mixed Use Development (460,000m² of a built area on a 73,000m² site in the Msheireb District of Doha), nabil gholam was given the floor to speak about the Project at the annual event taking place in Doha.
Nabil explained, it all started with the Owner’s willingness to create in the center of Doha a unique place for people to live, work, and shop. It eventually evolved to include a five-star hotel in the tower, an indoor Themed Experience Centre, a luxury department store, a VIP cinema complex, a world class Spa, and a range of exclusive apartments. It is a project of superlatives, but perhaps the most consistent focus in all its components as well as in its overarching vision is that it is truly people focused, evolutionary and pertinent to its location and culture.
From the start of the Construction works, on yearly basis, the Owner HALUL Real Estate Investment Company “HREIC” and the Doha Oasis Project Management Office “DOPMO” get together in a celebration event the committed Doha Oasis project teams and partner stakeholders “Doha Oasis Family”.
On the occasion of this 3rd Anniversary of construction start, while works are getting to a substantial completion in record time (with the highest standards of safety), in addition to the growing “Doha Oasis Family”, HREIC and DOPMO invited to a Gala Dinner at La Cigale Doha on April 15th, 2018 and introduced the new partners:
- Jacques Garcia, the French and internationally renowned decorator undertaking the interior design of the five-star Hotel, restaurants and spa of the Doha Oasis
- Printemps Paris in its 1st international expansion will occupy the whole retail areas at the GF and in the two elliptical floors above and overlooking the indoor Themed Experience Centre of Doha Oasis
- Paramount Pictures – Hollywood will incorporate, within the indoor Themed Experience Centre, “QUEST” a specific Paramount Pictures vision attraction for Doha Oasis.
- Guinness World Record: The Roller Coaster Ride of the Themed Experience Centre of Doha Oasis would become the tallest indoor ride.
This year, HREIC and DOPMO honored Nabil Gholam for his invaluable partnership and unwavering commitment towards Doha Oasis long term success.
We wish Doha Oasis a seamless completion soon and a lasting success.

ALMOST INVISIBLE ECO-TOURISM RESORT
The Invisible Eco-Tourism resort designed with sustainable eco-living objectives in mind as a seaside all year round retreat preserves the natural beauty of the site located on a beautiful hill on Gökova Bay, East of Bodrum – Turkey. ngª's intervention had to be subtle yet pertinent by discretely burying itself almost invisibly in the Mediterranean landscape yet capturing the breathtaking views of the Aegean Sea.
