Zain Head Quarters
Zain is a telecommunications company in 24 countries in the Middle East and Africa, employing 15,000 staff and having some 64.7million customers. For the relocation of their group headquarters from Kuwait to Bahrain, Zain engaged world-class architecture and interior design firm dwp, to shape the interiors of a new 11,000sqm 22-storey building in Seef. To accommodate 650 staff, the design by dwp had to respect concept guidelines by Future Brand.

The work involved an upgrade of all existing building services and finishes: lift lobbies, lifts, kitchens and toilets, in addition to office and client areas. Each floor received its own graphics, relating to its function: Finance, IT etc... These graphics were designed by Future Brand, for use in Zain corporate offices. The furniture was primarily from Vitra, with classic pieces from the Eames collection, and workstations were by Hayworth.

Having won the Zain Headquarters project in a competitive bid, dwp were subsequently engaged to provide services for several more Zain projects, including 3 in Africa.
