The landmark SSH-designed Sheikh Jaber Al Ahmad Cultural Centre (JACC) in Kuwait has featured in the Spring 2017 issue of Harper’s Bazaar Interiors magazine.
Ray Phillips, Design Director, CSO and Senior Partner at SSH, and Lead Designer of the JACC, spoke with Harper’s Bazaar Interiors about the design of the complex being inspired by Islamic architecture, which resulted in “complex geometric shapes interpreted in a modern way with a 2.5 m titanium and glass skin”.
He describes the centre as “a series of gems within jewels”.
“Internally, the jewels became the theatres,” Ray said. “Light is used to magical effect inside to illuminate each building, with shafts of natural light that flood through the huge walls.” He added that the complex is a “world-class building for ceremony, celebration and artistic expression”.
