Construction has begun on Allies & Morrison’s 1,165 home scheme for nursing staff at the new Sidra hospital in Doha, Qatar
Part of the wider Education City development, the new walled community will include a small mosque, community centre with a pool, gym, multipurpose hall and commercial units for restaurants.
According to the practice, the masterplan is ‘created by a strong east-west grain, two main diagonal access routes,
a central square, two north-south secondary roads and a central Sika’.
The scheme for developer Mazaya and the Qatar Foundation, is split into three different building typologies – duplex units, ‘clustered’ single-stair units and two-stair internal corridor units.
