SSH-designed Kuwait JACC wins top property awards

Kuwait-based Sheikh Jaber Al Ahmed Cultural Centre (JACC), a major entertainment facility designed by SSH, a leading project management company, has won two major awards at the Africa & Arabia Property Awards.

The project was declared winner in both 'Best Public Service Architecture' and 'Best Public Service Interior' category by the award jury.

The awards will be given at a special ceremony to be held at The JW Marriott Marquis Hotel, Dubai, on September 7.

Following this accolade, JACC will now go on to compete with other category winners for the top spot in the International Property Awards gala, to be held in London this December.  

Since its grand opening in November last year, the JACC has showcased performing arts, local performances and international acts. The facility is the centrepiece of a world-class theatre quarter set in spacious parkland, said SSH, the lead architecture and engineering designer for the complex.

The key buildings that form the JACC complex are the Theatre Centre, Music Centre, Conference Centre and National Library for Historical Documents, all set within a national Park for Kuwait.

On its innovative design, SSH said the complex geometric shapes, inspired by Islamic architecture, form the richly textured outer skin of the four buildings that make up JACC, which sit like jewels in a larger public park.

Luxurious world-class buildings below the outer skin exude character, drama and a heightened sense of expectation. The wonders continue inside each building, as visitors find jewels within jewels, as they explore the beautifully designed interiors, it stated.

The Africa & Arabia Property Awards, now in its 26th year, are judged by an independent panel of 70 industry experts.

The jury focuses on design, quality, service, innovation, originality, and commitment to sustainability for picking the winners. The awards are the largest, most prestigious, and widely recognised programme of its kind in the Africa and Arabia regions.-TradeArabia News Service
