Doha Design District will enhance Msheireb Downtown Doha’s position as a district of art and creativity and serve as a state-of-the-art centre for local designers to flourish. It will also attract local, regional, and global reputable designers to be part of the new district.
Ali Alkuwari, Acting CEO, Msheireb Properties, said: “Doha Design District will be the new permanent home for ideas, innovations and projects, providing affordable workspace to all creative industries. Design Districts are important throughout the world. They are the face of their cities and a part of the people's culture and identity. Since inception, our city was intended to be not only smart and sustainable, but also a beautiful destination that reflects a design aesthetic that blends Qatar's past and future. We believe design is beauty, and cities should be beautiful - places to feel hope and happiness.”
Doha Design District will be home to galleries, showrooms, creative services, stores, and even eateries and cafes. Centred around innovation and creativity, Doha Design District aims to be a world-class destination that prioritises creativity. The new Doha Design District will be a landmark in Qatar and the region and attract local and regional designers to interact with their global peers.
Interior Design Manager at Msheireb Properties, Shaikha Al Sulaiti, explained that the new hub’s role is vital as a centre of collaboration with Arab and international designers to exchange expertise with the wider community.
