Scope:  Architecture
Size:  2,325 sq. m.
Status:  Concept

The Qatar post office wanted to “re-brand” the postal service.  They want this prototype to remind everyone of the importance of sending mail the old-fashioned way. 
One design option is inspired by the image of the folded paper rocket.  The folded shell that covers the building will provide a huge open space to welcome visitors while it allows protection and security for the back office.
The second design option is inspired by the original post office building, included the arches.  This design allows natural light from an atrium to brighten the interior of the post office.
