The New Residential Tower in Doha is an apart-hotel, a structure meant to host foreign guests and local businessmen for medium and long-term periods.
The building has 23 floors and basement levels; it establishes a new landmark for the city, giving life to a vigorous plastic form, intensely sculptured by sunlight, highlighting its chiaroscuro effects. The composition is based on the volumetric articulation of large masses, studied to optimize the views towards the exterior landscape. It is clad by a semi-transparent metal skin, intended to reduce heat gain within the residential spaces.
The two lower levels host common functions such as the entrance hall, a restaurant, a spa and a business club, all designed to become urban-level meeting spaces. The upper floors are entirely residential, with high-end apartments ranging from 70 to 200 sqm. The top floor, surrounded by a wide panoramic terrace, hosts a restaurant.
Each interior space was accurately studied, with the idea of giving life to places of particular character, where both inhabitants and guests can feel at home and pleasantly carry out their activities.
