|Project Size||15,600 sqft | 1,4500sqm|
Porto Arabia Yacht Club is located in the heart of the prime shopping scene of Porto Arabia in the prestigious Pearl-Qatar mixed-use urban development. The project just steps away from the hundreds of local boutiques, restaurants and international luxury retailers with stunning harbor views and the serenity of glittering turquoise waters of the Arabian Gulf.
Inspired by the sails of Qatari traditional Dhows and framed by the clean minimalistic façade, we are creating a unique experience for all dining guests and club members to enjoy uninterrupted views of the marina with seamlessly connecting outdoor and indoor spaces. The design strategy of the sail is pulling all building components under one protective umbrella, starting with interior spaces and expanding to outdoor decks while making sure that there are unobstructed views of the marina, yachts, and sailboats.
Marina club interior space is naturally opening with folding partitions towards an exclusive elevated balcony with the sail protecting the balcony during all seasons of the year for most of the day. This smart and elegant roof solution will significantly reduce building heat gain, allowing for easy roof runoff, cleaning needs and working efficiently with seafront breezes. This roof volume will also provide the required double volume space for the upscale dining experience. The exterior façade will be equipped with an operable folding façade extending the interior space to the climate-controlled outdoor terrace supported by under floor air conditioning while taking into consideration overall building efficiency and operational needs. The facility will provide signature casual and fine-dining destination along with exclusive Members Lounge, Cigar Lounge supplemented with Private lounge and management offices for elite members.
