The building

Al Hamra is one of the tallest towers, and by far the tallest sculpted skyscraper, in the world. With a height of 414 m (1358 ft.) and 80 levels Al Hamra contains a business centre as well as a luxury centre. The tower is visible from miles around and provides a spectacular view over Kuwait and across the Arabian Gulf. The solid south wall is designed in a way to decrease the solar radiation.

The requirement

The impressive glass facade required a sustainable solution for temperature and solar control.

The solution

To optimise energy efficiency, all offices and meeting rooms have roller blinds with EnviroScreen. These metallised fabrics are highly reflective and 100% recyclable, with OEKO-TEX, Greenguard and Cradle to Cradle certification.
