Abandoned buildings in Kuwait always had one option; demolition. Much of those buildings shape the architectural heritage of Kuwait. This project aims to adaptively reuse a Modernist school building into a mixed-use housing project. Thus preserving the building, tackling the local issue of housing, and introducing an economically attractive alternative to developers. As a result, the debate on the value of Kuwait’s existing and abandoned building stock is tackled.
