Mall of Qatar, one of the world’s most significant shopping centres, has its grand opening

Mall of Qatar, a ground breaking retail and leisure destination in Doha, officially opened over the weekend.

Designed by Chapman Taylor’s London and Madrid studios, this 500,000m² project is one the largest new developments in the region. It is the first component in the Al Rayyan Gate masterplan and is adjacent to the Ahmed bin Ali Stadium, which is a host stadium for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

This large project offers a wide range of retail facilities with over 500 shops in a variety of spaces containing many Chapman Taylor designed artworks, as well as over 100 food and beverage outlets, and a Curio Collection by Hilton 5-star hotel.

What makes Mall of Qatar unique is the quality and quantity of its entertainment leisure experiences.  This includes a 19-screen cinema with the largest IMAX Laser 3D projection system in the world, a 10-lane bowling alley and a large Family Entertainment Centre featuring KidzMondo, which provides role playing real life experiences for children.

At the heart of the leisure offer is the ‘Oasis’ landscaped 30-metre high atrium at the centre of the project.  This dramatic space is surrounded by restaurants looking onto a rotating multi-lift stage, where the world’s first resident mall theatre group performs free shows all year round.

Chapman Taylor director, Chris Lanksbury, commented: “From the early concepts produced in 2012, it was intended to introduce a very wide range of experiences to the shopping centre design. This, combined with the unique entertainment facilities, takes shopping centre design to the next level.”
