If there is anything that stands out from Kuwaiti culture, up to these modern times it is their Diwaniya.

Being a strong element in communication, sharing and preservation of customs and traditions, the Diwaniya endures in the contemporary times as a space for meeting and dialogue, where different generations come together. It is not just a centered space where you can have some tea, but specially to live friendships and belonging to a group of peers.

Let’s have some tea?

The entrance to the building is an important moment of architectural experience. Curiosity, expectations, respect. We feel warm and welcoming atmosphere but we are also impressed by a monumental door element.
