The goal of this initiative is to help young Kuwaiti graduates launch their projects in a practical environment; the 7 Zones project includes a design center, simply called "7 Zones Design Center", catering for the needs of all construction related industries.
Eng. Khalid Esbaitah, Managing Director and CEO of Al Mazaya Holding, said
"We wanted to ensure that we could provide spaces for lease with reasonable and encouraging prices to help the Kuwaiti youth release their creative energy and in the right environment. We will equip the vicinity with a number of Smart offices, an art studio, and a fully equipped workshop for the gifted"
"As development works rapidly progress to launch 7 Zones next August, and with the beginning of the leasing process, we wanted the project to have a social facet that caters for the needs of the creative youth, as they need the support of both the private and government sectors", added Esbaitah.
Al Mazaya will start accepting submissions from those who are interested in booking their spaces in 7 Zones during the "Proud to be Kuwaiti" campaign, an event which is to be held on the 22nd and 23rd of February. The exhibition brings together aspiring Kuwaiti youth behind small projects with big companies, in order to encourage and support the youth of Kuwait to help develop these small projects.
Al Mazaya stated that applications will be open to all those with a flair for painting, sculpting, décor, architectural design as well as those with a passion for interior design, website design, cartoon animation, photography and landscape design. The application will be thoroughly studied by a jury of Al Mazaya specialists, and successful applicants will move on to join 7 Zones.
The 22500 square meter 7 Zones project is located in Al Shuwaikh Industrial District, one of the most popular areas in Kuwait due within close proximity to the Capital of Kuwait, Al Shuwaikh Port and the Free Trade District.
Throughout the project, Al Mazaya has plugged a gap in the sector with full services and amenities, from a parking garage to gathering together the biggest possible amount of construction materials, contractors, offices, galleries and stores; even setting up a special department for décor and interior design and establishing offices for contractors and consultants to service target markets. The Seven Zones project is named after the seven major construction related industries it is intended to cater for - furniture, water works, joinery, tiles and flooring, electronics, walls and painting, and lighting.
