Abu Hamour Shopping Village

Doha, Qatar - 2013 - Design Completed

With a total of 25 buildings, this large mixed-use development contains offices, hotel apartments, several retail units and a supermarket. Situated next to a large residential area in Qatar, with limited amenities, the project aims to capitalise on this potential market. The client requested a Rodeo Drive feel, so Lacasa’s designers selected a material palette of ceramics, stone, painted concrete and terracotta tiles to complete the Californian-Spanish aesthetic.

An additional requirement was extensive vehicle access. In order to maintain a pleasant environment, Lacasa created pedestrian-friendly, one-way streets to ensure a steady flow of traffic. The complex also contains several interconnected plazas with fountains in between buildings, to reinforce the community atmosphere.
