Villamar, Bahrain

The Villamar at the Harbour development in Bahrain provides a prime example of complex geometry building façade design.

The scheme by Norr Architects comprises three towers; 54, 52 and 43 storeys respectively. The towers distinctively appear to twist upwards in an anti-clockwise direction with the façade made up of triangular glass panels in stunning hues of blue and green complementing the surrounding waters.

The initial concept design of the façade envelope was developed with KEO. Wintech Ltd engineers were able to devise methods using software of identifying panels that could be produced in similar dimensions.

Construction of the residential complex has resumed and completion is aimed for 2017.
