Muharraq Cinema Complex, Bahrain

International architecture and interior design firm dwp were called upon by Gulf Film LLC, for their architectural and interior design consultancy services. Gulf Film LLC were interested in the concept design for the proposed Muharraq 14-screen cinema project, to be located on the 2nd floor of the Muharraq Mall, in the Kingdom of Bahrain - the first mall on Muharraq Island. Dwp was requested to explore all areas including the cinema halls, concessions and ticketing, public and back-of-house areas.

The client required the concept design to address cultural preferences of the location/country, including social and religious customs and traditions, of which dwp has a deep understanding. The Muharraq area is the historic capital of the Kingdom of Bahrain, so dwp sought to draw inspiration from the existing buildings and the new developments there.

Modern architecture is constructed, blending the old with the new. Contemporary techniques mix with ancient ideals, culture and materials. Notably, the pearl industry helped boost the economy. So to inject colour into the space, dwp took the mother of pearl shell concept and applied it literally. The external shell is soft and textured, whilst the interior is beautifully coloured. This makes for a fluid, yet striking visual impact to all areas.
