Le Sharq, Office Tower Competition jmarchitects
The Le Sharq office tower in Kuwait was designed by
jmarchitects to reflect the dynamics of both client aspirations
and function. Featuring five distinct office zones arranged
vertically throughout 28 floors, the tower is accessed through
a triple-height office entrance foyer with restaurant and retail
functions below and a conference mezzanine above. Major
challenges for this $8 million project included restricted site
conditions and a small footprint.

A holistic, integrated design approach works with the natural
environment to create a comfortable, low-energy building
that remains visually exciting. Bentley’s BIM solutions enabled
a single model for concept, design, and animation and visualization so changes in design could be accommodated quickly.
The Gayatri Park hyatt in hyderabad, India, will be a super-deluxe, five-star hotel. Envisioned as a seven-story building,
it will have a lower and upper lobby plus four floors of guest
rooms topped by two floors of high-end serviced apartments.
A dramatic atrium will rise through all seven floors.
Bentley’s BIM solutions allowed the study of massing and
forms at an early stage, which helped the project team ensure
that the design stayed within the many height and set-back
restrictions. In addition to facilitating communications with the
owner and external consultants, 3D modeling enhanced
communications and collaboration internally within the
architectural firm. BIM eliminated traditional labor-intensive
2D drawing, facilitated the cost-effective use of personnel,
and permitted the architects to focus their time on design
and service activities.
