Omrania joins in a limited international design competition to design the Secretariat General of Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Building Complex In Bahrain.
Grandeur and formality are the name of the game in this complex. Starting with the architectural masses and ending with the detailing language, everything works in harmony. A new interpretation of Mashrabiah screen façade is presented, and an interesting outdoor-indoor relationship predisposes the approach to the building. The proposed architectural monolithic image allows for a better understanding of how the functionality of the building relates to its visual qualities. The complex interacts with its immediate context with form and orientation, creating openness to the best views and a plaza to the street approach and main entrance gate.
