What was once a fire station that was used for over 30 years, the Doha Fire Station was transformed in 2012 to become one of Qatar's contemporary art spaces for the country's artists.
Easily spotted next to the Al Bidda Park, the Doha Fire Station is a sight to behold with an incredible architectural design and the fascinating art surrounding it.
In this guide, the ILoveQatar.net (ILQ) team gives a glimpse of what's in store for you here!
The Doha Fire Station houses more than one gallery where international and up-and-coming artists can showcase their art to the public. As art exhibitions frequently occur in Doha, the artists that present their art vary.
These galleries act as one of the major platforms for local artists to proudly put up their masterpieces for the public to marvel at!
Fostering its home-grown talents, the Doha Fire Station provides a hub for its resident artists to create and improve their work in the area.
The building has dedicated rooms and areas that cater to the artist's needs to complete their masterpiece.
Apart from that, the centre of the Doha Fire Station is also filled with numerous art installations and murals where artists have freely expressed themselves!
The Doha Fire Station not only houses amazing visual arts like paintings and sculptures but also holds film showings and events in its cinema! It is bookable with a capacity of 112 seats. Often, the space is booked with artists' talks, lectures, panel discussions, conferences, and film screenings.
The sculptures & murals inside the Doha Fire Station are not only Instagram-worthy but are also thought-provoking! The installations placed in the centre of the hub vary depending on what or who would be showcasing their art.
The Doha Fire Station is also ready to feed your hungry souls with the recently opened and reimagined Cafe #999! This restaurant led by DUCASSE Paris chefs, a group created by Michelin-starred chef Alain Ducasse, gives you authentic Italian cuisine inside a restaurant designed by artists and creatives.
