Buro Happold sets out Muscat stall

The traditional Muttrah fish market in Muscat, Oman, is to be replaced by a new waterfront landmark. Consultant Buro Happold will be working with Danish architect Snohetta to deliver the project.

The new market will form a focal point on the Muscat quayside by replacing the existing 1960s premises, which has seen demand outgrow its capacity and functionality. The traditional working market is visited by thousands of people every year.

The regeneration project will be led by Buro Happold’s Copenhagen office, which moved to new premises in the centre of the city last month.

“This is an opportunity to add another exciting project to a growing list of successful collaborations between Scandinavian architects and Buro Happold in the Middle East,” said Buro Happold principal Nick Nelson.
