About This Project
Gold Line Mock up Station Qatar Rail
The one of a kind design of the Doha Metro stations revolves around a contemporary ‘vaulted space’ concept; a concept that reflects on the heritage of the region by introducing open spaces that mimic traditional Bedouin tents. The design also uses ornamentations that shed light on the aesthetic elements and foundations of dynamic lighting and ventilation systems. The station mock-up brings to life the tribute that the Doha Metro station designs pay to Qatari heritage through the use of traditional elements of Islamic and local art and ‘pearl-effect’ interiors.
The first phase of the Doha Metro is expected to be complete in 2020, when the project’s 37 metro stations are expected to be operative, with an average journey time of two minutes between adjacent stations.
