Amazing Architectural Model Making Projects in Bahrain by RJ Models

Introduction of Architectural Model Makers in Bahrain, RJ Models:

There is a very long history and abundant natural resources in Bahrain.

But it is also the first Persian Gulf country to enter the post-oil economy after the twentieth century.

In addition to the development and utilization of petroleum resources.

Bahrain has invested heavily in the finance sector and tourism market.

Thanks to the support of the Bahraini government and the strong financial strength.

So that the Bahrain enterprise groups, novel, eclectic and luxurious buildings are rapidly emerging in Bahrain.

And architects from all over the world show their creativity and imagination in Bahrain.

RJ Models provides these architects with excellent architectural models in Bahrain support to help them visualize and materialize their design concepts.

Whether it is to inspire the creativity of architects, to showcase architectural concepts in competitions.

It can clarify planning solutions to relevant government departments.

Or showing people the blueprint of the future, exquisite models are the  outstanding contributions of architectural model makers in Bahrain.

1. Marsa Al Seef Site Model in Bahrain

  • Scale: 1: 500
  • Size: 7000mm x 6500mm
  • Production Time: 55 days

Marsa Al Seef, which stretches 1.8km and borders the Al Fahidi Historical District.

The area has a strong cultural and historical component.

And there are galleries that sell Emirati artwork and boutiques where one can admire traditional dress.

The surrounding area has an interconnected waterway system.

So it gives visitors the opportunity to glide across the water on wooden dhows, as the first traders once did.

The developer of Al Seef District is Meraas, a top leading developer in Bahrain. Its previous developments include The Beach at JBR and Citywalk.

This is the first time RJ Models cooperates with Meraas.

And they are very satisfied with the exquisite model made by experienced architectural model makers in Bahrain.

Since the client wants to show not only the Al Seef district alone, but also the city behind it.

It can also show the city behind it to demonstrate the close connection between them.

RJ Models chooses the 1:500 scale to make the architectural model in Bahrain.

It can both show the entire surrounding environment and the details of buildings along the riverbank and the yacht models, etc.

There are hundreds of buildings in the architectural model.

So RJ Models use a CNC engraving machine to cut the components of each building.

It can promote efficiency and accuracy for this project in Bahrain.

For those two significant parametric designed streamlined cultural centers, architectural model makers in Bahrain pay more attention to them.

Moreover, RJ Models use 3D printing to make the semi-finished shell and then manually polished.

And RJ Model can spray to restore the texture in real life.

2. Bahrain Bay City Planning Model in Bahrain

  • Scale: 1: 1000
  • Size: 1500mm x 1500mm
  • Production Time: 21 days

Designed by SOM, this large-scale master plan aims to advance the development of Bahrain and its capital, Manama.

It also responds to a broad vision of economic development coming from the Middle East.

The 432,000-square-meter site consists of an island connected to the mainland via causeways. The pattern of the new district is strongly radial.

This was divided into twoby a comprehensive function avenue that ends with a grand public open space.

SOM's planning calls for a variety of buildings and supporting facilities, including residential buildings, cultural sites, hotels, and lush parks.

RJ Models makes this miniature city model with strong geometric characteristic.

It uses simplified rectangular graphics material to present the buildings, landscapes, and bridges.

Even some needed curved parts are all cut neatly with CNC engraving machines.

The architectures in that Bay are all created from white PVC and acrylic.

It contrasts with the mass uniformed greenery and tailored coastline, conveying a pure, noble, and elegant feeling to viewers.

Even the scale is 1:1000 and the production method is organic, details are not omitted or neglected.

There are also the cobbles on the shore, wooden decorations in the pavilion and landscape design in the park.

All of them can show the elaborated model-making technology and craftsmanship.

Architectural model makers in Bahrain install various type of lights in the model.

It adaptd to different atmosphere needs.

Low-rise buildings were fitted with moderately warm-yellow lights, while high-rise buildings and cultural facilities were fitted with bright white lights.

3. Marsa Al Seef Model in Bahrain

  • Scale: 1: 500
  • Size: 4500mm x 4000mm
  • Production Time: 45 days

This is the master planning model for Marsa Al Seef in Bahrain, showing the blueprint of that area in the future.

Architectural model makers in Bahrain do a great deal of research before the model making process.

In addition to planning technical specifications, they make sure that they know enough about the local environment, geography and culture.

Despite installing lights for the building, the architectural model makers also decorate the coastline with stripe blue lights.

At night, the city lit by yellow and white lights and the coast lit by blue light.

Coupled with the lights reflected on the sea surface, the whole area looks like a pearl in the Persian Gulf.

Due to the vast area, the size of the green space in the architectural model is correspondingly large;

Architectural model makers cut a few PVC plates according to the terrain and then colored them.

A thin layer of adhesive binds the ground material to the colored powder. And finally planted some small trees and piled bushes.

The greenery made through this process is vivid and highly efficient.

Modeler affixed blue paper under the propylene material and added some reflective particles, which gives the water a sparkling feeling.

When making the streamlined buildings, the architectural model makers in Bahrain use sediment, gypsum or foam as the basic shape.

Then they made it by one-time molding of epoxy resin and fiberglass wire.

Finally, manual grinding to achieve a high standard fineness.

4. Commercial Building Model in Bahrain

  • Scale: 1: 250
  • Size: 2500mm x 2000mm
  • Production Time:  2 months

The designers draw inspiration from local culture and context, while pioneering  energy-saving strategies to high-rise office buildings in the region.

The curtain wall made of glass offers a wide view of the sea below.

And the commercial street with palm trails below the building provides a first-class office environment for the office.

The building’s color scheme alludes to the natural palette of the region: the emerald-blue waters of the Persian Gulf and pale beige sand of the desert.

Similarly, the pre-cast griller facade references the thick, heat-resistant walls and latticed sunscreens found in local architecture.

A two-story arcade shields the sun, dust, and wind from the commercial street, making it a luxurious place to shop.

Glass terraces connect the richly detailed Arabesque interior spaces.

At night, warm yellow lights illuminate these terraces, and the structure glows with diffused light.

To increase richness and realism of the commercial building, the model makers installed several delicate sailboats on the “sea”.

They also made several gray areas of the same size directly below those sailboats to mimic the shadows under sunshine.

This also highlights the clear waters of the Persian Gulf in Bahrain.

Architectural model makers install warm yellow lights in the high-rise buildings and low-rise commercial streets.

They also decorate the coastline with strip blue lights that sketch the shape of bund and shore.

The model-maker installed special trees and vegetation around the site to match the tropical climate, giving viewers a stronger “immersion”.

5. Commercial Building Model in Bahrain

  • Scale: 1: 250
  • Size: 2500mm x 2000mm
  • Production Time: 45 days

Located near the coast, the project's design draws on the rounded form of Bahrain’s traditional fishing boats.

The curved facade contains rows of deep-set exterior windows fitted with heat-absorbing glass that help mitigate the intense Gulf sun.

Transoms above the windows reflect and filter ambient light into the building, taking advantage of direct sunlight while mediating heat.

The building's glass facade captures daylight and limit solar gain through a sophisticated series of horizontal and vertical shading devices.

These devices articulate the building’s primary facades.

To show clients the most realistic scenes of the building, model-makers take photos with the real sky in the background.

In keeping with the effect of the real material, the model makers use the same steel  to make the façade. Due to the excessive rigidity of the steel, it is difficult to meet the accuracy requirements of manual cutting.

So each part of them is engraved in advance by CNC engraving machine, and then assembled manually.

Model-makers installed lights in the commercial building and surrounding architectures, allowing viewers to display different combinations through the control panel.

This drastically increases the richness of the model .

6. COM Elaf Bank Building Model in Bahrain

  • Scale: 1: 150
  • Size: 850mm x 900mm
  • Production Time: 30 days

The Elaf Bank building is one of the region’s most iconic corporate edifices in the Middle East, designed by SOM.

It is divided into three parts, the office building, the reception hall, and the conference hall.

In addition, it has a sky garden and a air exhibition hall. Both the office building and the sky garden have direct access to the air exhibition hall..

The sky garden and the straight ladder form a sculptural "T".

The designers choose the traditional light brown limestone as the exterior wall material for the building.

This not only reflects the local architectural style but also inherits the maximum wear-resistant characteristics of limestone.

Using numerous glass facades on the walls facing the Persian Gulf, users can experience unique light effects throughout the day.

In the process of making the office building model, because the limestone is difficult to sand to the proper proportion and maintain its rigidity.

Architectural model makers use the cement, concrete, gravel and other materials to make the basic model.

Architectural model makers in Bahrain design a unique lighting system for the building.

The basic interior lighting allows the audience to see the interior structure.

Additionally, model-makers install bright light on the façades of the air exhibition hall, fully revealing the shape of the building.

7.  Diyar Al Muhharaq Model in Bahrain

  • Scale: 1: 75
  • Size: 3500mm x 5500mm
  • Production Time: 45 days

Diyar Al Muharraq is an iconic addition to Bahrain’s north-eastern coastline.

This vast archipelago of 7 man-made islands lies off the shores of the Kingdom’s historic former capital, Muharraq.

Bustling retail centers, picturesque marinas, and tranquil sandy beaches provide dynamic community focal points that connect larger clusters of neighborhoods.

These neighborhoods are linked throughout the islands by a network of roads, footpaths, and waterways.

This is an architectural model of a yacht club located in that area in Bahrain.

Among this architectural model is a meticulously portrayed sailing boat model, also known as the schooner sailing boat, is meticulously portrayed.

The mast, sling, hull and streamlined dock are carefully scaled, with light-yellow lights underneath the sailboat to highlight its esteem.

Instead of using blue glass panels to make water, the model-makers use glazed white plates to represent the water surface.

It abstracts the water body by showing the physical properties of reflectivity, guaranteeing unity and purity of the model yacht.

The dock is a parametrically designed ellipse that is geometrically symmetrical.

The model makers use 3D printing technology to make this unique base.

To highlight its symmetrical feature, the lighting system is also assembled in that way.

There is a strong axis wire when viewed from the front.

It is also worth mentioning that the architectural model makers do not use the outwardly illuminated light in this model.

All the light is refracted or diffused and leak out from the structural part of the yacht.

This indirect light source has excellent performance in presenting the building’s esteem.

It avoids direct glare, increasing the pleasure of viewing the architectural scale model in Bahrain.

8. Wood model for a Private villa in Bahrain

  • Scale: 1: 75
  • Size: 3500mm x 5500mm
  • Production Time: 45 days

This is a wooden architectural model for a private villa, designed by the famous architectural and design firm MAS.

The model-makers from RJ Models use a simple and delicate way to make this villa model. It outlines the front yard, the main house, and the backyard.

In this model, the only material used by the architectural model building team is 0.5 cm thick enamel boards. It has a light brown color and beautiful wood grain.

Wood is a commonly used material in architectural models.

But in general, most people use it to make some decorations or add some changes on the façade.

In Bahrain, few model makers use it to make an entire model.

Even the texture of the eucalyptus is very beautiful.

However, making tiny components out of this material is difficult due to the brittle nature of the wood.

Also, because wood has burrs after breaking, model-makers must cut nimbly and neatly. Otherwise the entire piece will be wasted.

In this model, even the trees planted in the garden are wood materials, which are quite idiosyncratic and beautiful.

Through this wooden architectural model, the designer can introduce the various designs of the house to the client.

Meanwhile, because the model is clean and pure, designers and clients have enough space to show their ideas and inspirations.

The warm yellow lighting in each room conveys a cozy and homelike feeling to viewers.

9. Bahrain Tower Building Model by Atkins

  • Scale: 1:300
  • Size: 800mm x 600mm
  • Production Time: 4 weeks

A feat of engineering and architectural marvel, Bahrain World Trade Center stands proudly on the shores of the Persian Gulf.

Designed by a company famed for its skyscrapers in the middle east, Atkins studied wind turbines for four years.

Sublime beauty and imposing heights are one thing, but what makes this unique is it's powered by its own energy.

This one-of-a-kind, state-of-the-art vision trusted RJ Models to construe the ingenuity of the design.

And RJ Models never fails to deliver with utmost precision and speed.

Our architectural model makers used transparent, translucent acrylic and white cardboard to creatively showcase the monochromatic split funnel-shaped building.

From one advanced thinker to another, RJ Models used computer laser carving machine cutting function and other advanced technology.

This project proves the capability of RJ Models to parallel Atkins, and therefore with the world of the greats.

10. Toyota Plaza Industrial Model in Bahrain

  • Scale: 1:250
  • Size: 1800mm x 1650mm

11. Dana at Hawar Urban Planning Model in Bahrain by HOK

  • Scale: 1:300
  • Size: 1500mm x 1500mm
  • Production Time: 30 Days

A jaw-dropping high standard mixed-used development is about to rise in Bahrain, the Pearl of the Persian Gulf.

In 2008, this third smallest nation in Asia is the world’s fastest-growing financial center establishing itself as a powerhouse nation.

Commissioned by a firm on top of their game, HOK sought RJ Models’ expertise for this project.

Within 30 days, RJ Models delivered the massive 1:300 scale 1500 x 1500 mm piece at a rapid pace.

These architecture model makers value quality and aesthetics to assist the client in conveying their design.

This model used various materials with variable intensity of finishes to contrast and give equal focus on each structure. The glorious sea used a semi-gloss finish translating tranquility and giving distinction to the inviting sand in a flat finish.

This ambitious urban masterplan majestically showcased a scale model worthy to be called an artwork.


These architectural and master planning models are only part of the many projects that RJ Models has conducted in Bahrain.

Due to the delicacy of the models, architects and companies are willing to continue cooperation with RJ for further projects.

The local climatic conditions and Islamic-style architectural culture were considerations for the team when making architectural model building in Bahrain.

Since every architectural design companies has his own expectations and ways of looking at a thing which is usually very personal.

The model makers must fully understand and find a way to go beyond what they expect.

Nothing can make people really understand what a building looks like than a concretized model in Bahrain.

The model-maker uses various advanced technologies and machines in the architectural model making process, including LED lighting, 3D printing and computer programming. For example, making the model controllable through intelligent equipment.

Despite the many automated processes, there are still exquisite manual qualities in each model that gives it soul and vitality.
