Kuwait University College for Women A State of the Art Learning Oasis | C7A
C7A, in association with Gulf Consult, was commissioned to undertake the study, design and supervision of the College for Women (CFW). The CFW will serve 3,000 students on both the male and female campuses. It will house five major departments: Art and Design, Communication Science and Language, Environmental Technology, Family Sciences, and Information Science. This state-of-the-art facility will feature laboratories, classrooms, lecture rooms, exhibit hall, an administrative office suite, faculty offices, prayer rooms, and a Food Production Demonstration Facility. The design is centered on the themes of "art" and "environment" which act as common threads linking departments together. Natural daylighting, ventilation and the incorporation of sustainable building materials create a healthy environment. It is anticipated to receive LEED Silver certification.
