Al Hamra is the new landmark with its iconic tower heralding a new era of development and prosperity in Kuwait.

The Building

Al Hamra is one of the tallest towers, and by far the tallest sculpted skyscraper, in the world. With a height of 414 metres and 80 levels Al Hamra contains a business centre as well as a luxury centre. The tower is visible from miles around and provides a spectacular view over Kuwait and across the Arabian Gulf. The solid south wall is designed in a way to decrease the solar radiation.

The Requirement

The impressive glass facade required a sustainable solution for temperature and solar control.

The Solution
