The brightly lit living room overlooking a tranquil reflecting pool, is designed in arabesque patterns and a Mashrabiya inspired atrium. The reflecting pool is a tribute to the old Msheireb area, which was centre of Doha and well known amongst the local community as ‘the place to drink water’. Translated from Arabic, Msheireb means “drinking well” and the name is inspired by the city’s heritage.
