Grimshaw is building new recreational facilities in Qatar

Promoting healthier lifestyles


Architecture practice Grimshaw was selected to construct a series of recreational establishments across the country in order to inspire local communities to be more active in public social environments

The location will include different specialised courts for football, basketball, volleyball and handball, as well as children's play areas, public-access facilities, and will cater to families, young people and sports enthusiasts.

The opportunity to build the facilities came from Qatar's Olympic Committee, and the structures will feature a centralised and raised café, with the building in it's entirety being surrounded by the country's vast desert scenery.

Also, since Qatar has a considerably warm climate with plenty of sunshine, there will be an abundance of shade situated around the premises in the form of decorated canopies that sit atop seating accommodations. Additionally, there will structured funnels that create natural cool breezes, as well as a recycled water system that provides irrigation for the location's natural setting.
