This primary school acts as the gateway to the new heart of the city centre in the Msheireb Downtown project. Accommodating 550 pupils, the school will provide the local community with an integrated learning environment, as well as a nursery school and sports and recreation facilities. The school buildings are inspired by the forms and massing of traditional Qatari village communities - orientation, windows and shading devices create naturally ventilated spaces for most of the school year. Classrooms are arranged in clusters around the perimeter of garden courtyards which act as additional open-air teaching spaces.
