Dar Jinaa

Dar Jinaa


Designed by the Belgian architecture firm, Office Kersten Geers David Van Severen in collaboration with Emaar, the Dar Jinaa project comprises the transformation of the existing Dar Jinaa in the old city of Muharraq as well as an extension on a neighboring plot, which will accommodate workshop and training areas. The new Dar Al Jinaa will act as a training and research centre for traditional folk music and will enhance the intangible heritage of Muharraq. Situated along the Pearling, testimony of an Island Economy pathway, the extension is a three- storey building enveloped with a steel mesh, which also acts as a cooling device shading the building from direct sunlight. The mesh can be lifted on the ground floor, opening it up directly to the street and reinforcing its role as an open majlis to the city.
