The Downtown Doha project is a 31-hectare mixed-use development in the centre of Qatar‘s capital. It is part of the old commercial district’s regeneration process with a new architectural language that is modern yet inspired by traditionial Quatari heritage and architecture. The lighting commission includes interior, exterior and public realm lighting of high end office and retail spaces, leisure facilities, luxury apartments, hotels, a mosque, entertainment venues and public outdoor spaces. The designs developed during concept stage formed project wide lighting strategies that bring consistency and balance to lighting of individually designed spaces and provide sitewide lighting language. A number of bespoke luminaires were developed to achieve excellent lighting functionality and unique architectural integration.
