Fintas Centre(1979)

Kuwait City, Kuwait
Government of Kuwait

Office Building, Retail/Hospital/Theatre


The Government of Kuwait initiated the development plan for a new town envisioned as a major urban centre. The Fintas Centre was to accommodate retail and commercial office space, as well as focus on clinics, cinemas, recreation, parking, a botanical garden, and a market, serving a population of 500 000. The site was a vacant rectangular superblock approximately 1 hectare, situated between the Fahaheel Expressway and the As Safar Motorway. There are four gates at the cardinal points: two of which enter low rise office buildings; one a conservatory surrounded by a hotel, library and theatre; and one on a bridge which links the east and the west sides of the centre.
