DIVE PLUNGES INTO BAHRAIN

NEWS IN PICTURES

These are the first images of Dive Architects' new building for the British Council in Bahrain. The London-based practice has teamed up with the council's own in-house team on the 1,800m 2 project, which includes plans for a learning centre, a café, video-conferencing facilities and 20 classrooms. Building-services engineer Max Fordham has also worked on the scheme, along with structural engineer Price & Myers. The project will be built on reclaimed land in the Middle Eastern island state and will be angled to minimise solar gain. The building, which boasts a double-height central space and incorporates an energy-saving enthalpy wheel, will be set within a new garden, linked to the gatehouse by a covered walkway. The project is due for completion next year.
