Kuwait-based architecture firm SSH has been hired to design a new resort-style recreational and residential project in the Gulf state’s southern region.

The company said in a statement that it has been awarded the contract for the Khiran Pearl Mixed Use Complex, the latest project by Tamdeen Shopping Centres Company.

SSH, along with RTKL, will complete the design of the $700 million project located at the heart of Sabah Al Ahmed Sea City, the environmentally-friendly recreational waterfront development, adjoining a 900 berth luxury marina, which will be the downtown to a community of approximately 200,000 people.

The resort-style project which will be spread across 350,000 square metres of waterfront will eventually create significant opportunities for Kuwait's tourism and business growth.

The project will include Kuwait's first high-end Outlet Mall, two high-rise residential towers, one furnished apartments tower, a marina to house over 900 boats and a five-star hotel with an international spa component.

The 75,000 sq m luxury Outlet Mall within Al Khiran will have an outdoor ambiance with indoor streets covered by continuous skylights to provide natural light.

SSH said at the heart of the marina will be Al Khiran Park with a rich and varied vegetation which will include a variety of open air attractions for children as well as huge performance spaces.

SSH has offices in Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, the UAE, Iraq, Bahrain, Algeria, South Africa and London. Founded in 1961, it has completed more than 1,000 projects.
