The Arcapita headquarter in Bahrain is one of the centerpiece designs in the Bahrain Bay development. The main building is a cuboid floating 15 m above ground level. The cuboid has a length of 135 m and a width of 40 m. It rests on two cores and has an overall height of 25 m. An undulating concrete structure between the ground level and the cuboid houses the entrance area.
