Riffa’ Fort Museum, Bahrain

The historic Fort in Riffa’, restored in 1993, is important in Bahrain’s history as a long-time seat of the al-Khalifa family. In the concept design for adapting the fort for the Royal Family Museum, the demands of modern museum display were balanced with respect for the traditional historic architecture.


Commissioned by the Culture & Heritage Authorities, Kingdom of Bahrain, 2007.
