Modern design with functionality and sustainability
The ceilings and walls inside the Qatar National Convention Centre are clad with 6,000 m² of architectural wire mesh made by Haver & Boecker. To meet the exclusive requirements of the room’s ambience, the designers chose bronze wire mesh. The high-quality aesthetic of the architectural mesh, as well as the excellent long-life properties, non-flammability, easy maintenance and recyclability, made choosing Haver & Boecker wire mesh an easy decision for the client.
The walls of the Theatre Hall are clad with bronze wire mesh type MULTI-BARRETTE 8123, which underlines the exclusivity of the ambience due it´s colour. The elegance of the wire mesh allows interaction with various light reflections and gives the mesh a unique aesthetic.
The wire mesh was specifically designed for the acoustic requirements of the theatre. The mesh is coated with clear varnish, canted to the edges and glued into black-coated aluminium frames. Due to their structure, the wire mesh types combine air permeability and acoustic neutrality with an optically closed and homogeneous overall picture.
So as not to affect the homogeneous appearance of the decorative wire mesh claddings, Haver & Boecker developed a special invisible fastening system whereby the cassette elements remain removable.
With 40,000 m² of exhibition space and facilities for up to 27,000 people, the Qatar National Convention Centre is the largest exhibition centre in Middle East.
This building, located in the Education City of Doha, is the first of its kind that’s built to gold certification of the US Green Building Council´s Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED).
