Kuwait: CallisonRTKL (CRTKL), a global architecture, design, and strategy firm, is proud to announce that 360 Kuwait has won three awards: the 2021 ICSC Gold Global Award for Design and Development, the Mena Shopping Centre & Retailer Gold Award for Renovations and Expansions, and the RLI International Shopping Centre Renovation Award. 360 Kuwait is an expansion of 360 Mall which opened in 2006, also designed by CRTKL. The mall expansion connects to the original mall by bridge and is composed of a new mall concourse, a Grand Hyatt Hotel and the Rafael Nadal Tennis Academy.

”We are honored to have been recognized on a global scale for our work on the 360 Kuwait shopping center,” said Hernan Molina, Associate Principal at CRTKL. “As a firm, we always aim to push the boundaries within design to create elevated moments that capture the essence of the regional culture, tastes, and preferences. Such noteworthy recognition is an honor and reinforces the project’s place as the premier shopping experience in Kuwait.”

360 Kuwait consists of 260 retail stores, 300 guest rooms, 17 tennis courts, 15 movie screens, and 13 major anchor spaces. The strategic expansion includes an additional 20250 square meters of retail space, and five-star Grand Hyatt, the largest multi-purpose arena in Kuwait, and the second Rafa Nadal Tennis Academy in the world. This exclusive and unique destination integrates retail, sport, and entertainment in a luxurious environment.  

In 2022, spaces like 360 Kuwait will serve as a window to examine the inevitable evolution of retail spaces. No longer just places to shop, retail centers are repositioning themselves to coalesce with the daily activities of the surrounding community. Now functioning as lifestyle destinations, these spaces will utilize multi-layered, multi-service offerings that cannot be replicated virtually to draw consumers into physical shopping environments. 

“360 Kuwait represents the future of retail locations, providing significant opportunities for enhanced engagement with activities and amenities that serve to compliment the consumer experience,” said Eduardo Churquina, Associate Principal at CRTKL. “The space truly embeds itself into the daily lives of the surrounding community, creating value while meeting both basic and high-level needs of locals and visitors alike. These recent accolades are indicative of the success of this innovative project.” 

With recent commendations from the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC), Retail & Leisure International (RLI), and Retail Congress, 360 Kuwait continues to be acknowledged as a premier establishment on the cutting edge of retail design-thinking and development. The multi-faceted destination allows consumers to shop, exercise, unwind, and ultimately maximize their lifestyle at their desire.
