Taking all necessary precautions, Havelock One made this project happen, on time and in spite of a global pandemic and regional lockdowns. Our reward? Now we can officially say: Yalla! Let's go Bowling!

scope of workTurnkey fit-out
Despite Covid19, the trend to turn malls into indoor community and entertainment centres continues unabated. Having worked for VOX Cinemas and Magic Planet, Majid Al Futtaim nominated Havelock One to do the full turnkey fit-out, civil and MEP works for Yalla! Bowling at Atyaf Mall, Riyadh.
Previously part of Magic Planet, Yalla! Bowling has become a more independent brand – and in Al Yarmook it covers a space of close to 10,500 sq. ft., including a games area, eight pin bowling lanes as well as a diner. Our KSAfit-out team worked hard – also in spite of Covid19 – and finished the project within five months. Sourcing from overseas and subsequent logistical challenges were overcome with temporary local solutions, and our factory in Askar, Bahrain contributed all joinery, seating, tables, F&B counters, and feature ceiling wooden items, in its usual fashion – on time and of high quality.
A design highlight of the bowling alley clearly is the F&B counter and bulkhead made of laminated patterned glass, also manufactured by our team in Bahrain.
