KATARA TOWERS

ABOUT KATARA TOWERS

The Iconic Towers of Lusail are an architectural translation of Qatar’s national seal, representing the traditional scimitar swords. Two hotels, a 5-star & Luxury 6-star hotel opened in 2022 with a total area of 300,000m2, the project was completed in time for the World cup being hosted in the Country, following ten years of construction. The venue has quickly become a true landmark in the gulf region.

THE CHALLENGE

 Extremely decerning clientele, who demand the absolute finest quality and luxury lifestyle in everything they do. This meant, that whatever was deployed, it needed to deliver the highest quality sound quality, combined with an aesthetic that did not distract from the stunning
surroundings. Moreover, it would need to withstand the harsh environmental conditions of the region, without the sound quality or appearance deteriorating over time. 

REQUIREMENTS

 The objective was to deliver balanced & even audio coverage throughout the outdoor space, whilst blending into the landscape garden areas around the pools and outdoor seating areas. 

BEYOND EXPECTATIONS

“The client had a very clear understanding of what they wanted; exceptional audio performance, combined with an industrial design that would not compromise their carefully curated outdoor spaces. We turned to Sonance, because they are the only loudspeaker manufacturer that we know of, that puts as much emphasis on aesthetics as they do sonic performance and reliability. If it sounds amazing, looks amazing, and delivers many years of reliable service, the client is going to be happy!”

METHODOLOGY

 98 Omni 6T speakers, combined with 119 of the LS6T landscape speakers were deployed on this project, providing coverage throughout the outdoor spaces of Katara Towers & delivering hi-fi delity audio, using Sonance’s laminated core transformer technology via 100v transmission. 

RESULT

Professional audio integration is more than merely fi lling an area with music. It’s a tangible design element and a critical part of the space’s environment that is meant to create a mood, elevate the senses, and not distract from the designer’s vision and aesthetic goals. For 40 years, the architectural speaker pioneers at Sonance have continually explored and refi ned the fi ne art of musical fi delity within a designed space, with their award-winning loudspeakers. This project is no exception, with breathtaking audio and aesthetics that are “designed to disappear” into the surroundings.
