DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
The Yoga Center

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
wellness Center

INSPIRATION:
The Yoga Center follows a unique type of Yoga , known as Bikram yoga. This approach within our environmental context influenced the color & material selection. Earthy colors & sandy tones helped reflect this approach, and thereby were a guideline in selecting the Turkish marble flooring, the brown mirrors, limestone, with dark textured wood for the walls.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Located in Kuwait City’s busiest district Qibla, The yoga center is an attempt to revitalize the basement floor of Jassim Tower. The location of the project was unorthodox. However it was an attempt to serve women both within the city boundaries and from the surrounding residential areas.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The Yoga Center, was designed according to the socio-cultural influences in Kuwait, meaning that privacy for women was a key factor. This being said, the hierarchy in zoning came into place. The main elevation of the yoga center indicated two zones, private & public. The public zone was clearly visible as a retail shop allocated for the sales of yoga accessories, where’s the private zone was indicated by the curve of the wall inwards. Having the wall in this orientation made it welcoming yet private. The space program of the yoga center was tailored to the clients requirements, and based on the information given the spaces were designed accordingly.

The project is located in Kuwait and finished in 2013
