A relic of Qatar’s history converted into a modern icon, Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art houses numerous art collections, galleries and facilities. We provided Project and Construction Management services to support the complete re-design and renovation of a former school building.

Situated in Education City, Qatar, the project has a total gross area of 5,500m2, housing modern art that represents the full spectrum of genres produced across the Arab world.
Mathaf is used as an inspiring space for dialogue and teaching of modern and contemporary art in Qatar with a collection of more than 9,000 works spanning from the 1840s to the present day.

The structure has a tangible sense of balance where the old blends seamlessly with the new. This approach is reflected with an emphasis on the educational possibilities of art, which have been incorporated with functional use.
