The intention of the proposal is to provide Qatar with a building that gives it a strong, open and welcoming presence in Lebanon, proudly rooted in its Qatari and Islamic architectural histories. The concept behind the project is the creation of an urban icon within a luscious and green garden enclosure that is both ecologically and environmentally responsive.

In a contemporary interpretation of Islamic architecture, the building layout stretches the building program both horizontally and vertically to expand it into a wealth of internal spaces, outdoor gardens, courtyards and pools of water all enclosed within a secure perimeter wall.
