Arraya Office Tower
Set in the heart of Kuwait city Arraya Tower rises a breathtaking 300 m into the sky to become one of the most prominent buildings in Kuwait and to also mark an important milestone in the history of Pace. A sixty storey glass curtain wall narrows into a telecommunications mast that made it the tallest building in the country upon completion and the first skyscraper in Kuwait. Innovative use of linear glass and stone, further strengthened by a series of square punctuated windows and a series of angled ribbed like steel structure make this skyscraper an instant icon in the region and has helped to re-define the standard for the surrounding skyline.
