The opportunity

Create a world-class visitor experience

The Doha City Tennis Stadium and Sports Precinct in Qatar is set to become a new world-class sports-led destination. It underpins Qatar National Development Framework’s (QNDF) vision to make Doha ‘the Gulf’s most liveable city.

Designed by Arup Associates, the stadium will house 12,000 spectators, feature a retractable roof and will sit alongside a new tennis precinct incorporating practice courts and a club house.

We have been chosen to create a wayfinding scheme for the stadium along with a comprehensive strategy for the masterplan of the whole site. Sure to put smiles on faces, we are creating a world-class visitor experience befitting of a world-class destination.

The result

An evolving design that will engage and delight

We are creating a scheme that will engage and delight the senses and help put this new sports destination on the map.

When completed, the aim is for the stadium to join the roster of venues for the ATP Tennis World Tour.

Our approach

Taking inspiration from the beautifully crafted architecture

We are taking inspiration from the beautifully cambered form and other architectural principles.

Key to the scheme will be a focus on connectivity with the local urban environment and access to the stadium and tennis precinct areas during event and non-event modes.
