Marina Yacht Club for the new city of Lusail.

Lusail Marina will be a lively destination where the landscape design meets the high quality demanded by the prestige of the site. The Marina Yacht Club occupies a prominent position in Lusail Marina, on its central axis, over the water. Together with the landscape design, it will give a strong identity to the Marina. The Marina Yacht Club is highly visible from the promenade that develops on three sides of the Marina, and also from the sea when entering the Marina. It is a focus point not only seen from four directions, but also from the sea level and from the sky. The Yacht Club is an eco-friendly landmark building designed to be also a “seamark”. The sculpted roof curve of the Marina Yacht Club emerges from the promenade horizontal line, and curls dynamically to offer a signature skyline to the Marina. It is a kinetic object that invites to turn around and discover its evolving aspect: the curved roof bursting from the West, the transparent prow oriented towards the East, and from the Marina, the openness of the wide panoramic terraces. The Yacht Club is detached from the Marina promenade and completely surrounded by water. The internal organization allows a clear separation between staff and guests. The administration at the ground floor enjoys both privacy and panoramic views on the marina. The entrance lobby distributes direct access to all Yacht Club components: on one side, the retail spaces, close to the promenade entrance, the club members’ foyer and facilities, and offices dedicated to administration; on the other side, the café and shisha bar, the panoramic lift and sculptured stair that lead to the top-end restaurant on the first floor.
