KFAS Headquarters & Conference Center

The Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Science is building new headquarters and a conference centre, situated on two small harbour basins and embedded in a park landscape.

Both new buildings have a striking block structure with several deep, large-format openings. The ground floor in the headquarters is an outdoor area and open to the public. It interlocks with the park, which connects the two buildings via a "green corridor" along the harbour basin.

Transsolar advises on outdoor comfort. Solar radiation studies and assessment of outdoor comfort according to UTCI make it possible to derive targeted measures for comfort improvement for different locations and conditions on the site.
