Nestled within Lusail Marina, the Lusail Yacht Club
stands as a prominent structure, defining the Marina's character with its
distinctive, fluid design within the multifaceted skyline of Doha. Serving
various commercial purposes, this architectural gem comprises retail spaces, a
club members' foyer, administrative offices, a café, a shisha bar, a panoramic
lift, and an artistically crafted stairwell leading to a premier restaurant.
The striking layout of the building, reminiscent of a shell, pays homage to the
thriving local pearl industry, harmonizing with the region's cultural heritage
Designed to achieve top ratings under the Global Sustainability Assessment System, the building strictly adheres to eco-friendly principles, evident in its cutting-edge building technology. To reduce vehicular traffic and parking demand, the site integrates with pedestrian and cycling pathways. Additionally, a smart energy usage strategy is implemented both within and outside the building. The sleek louvers on the roof minimize direct sun exposure, turning down the need for cooling energy. High reflective façades actively lower heat gain and subsequent energy consumption. Incorporating energy recovery systems, heat wheels and highly efficient LED lighting further solidify the structure's sustainable approach. The optimization of daylight exposure within the interior spaces consistently lessens the reliance on artificial lighting. Moreover, the use of locally sourced materials for construction has significantly diminished the overall carbon footprint.
