Winning Design For Kuwait’s New National Security Bureau

By architect Meshari Al-Tulihi.

What I loved about the design is being environmentally friendly. The main lobby’s vast skylight not only lets large amounts of natural light in (don’t we just l.o.v.e natural light?), it also reflects summer sun rays, reducing heat. It’s also improved with solar cells that can drastically reduce power consumption during the night.

You may recognize Meshari Al-Tulihi’s name from his furniture designs with partner Emad Al-Qattan (link)
