The main feature of the project is a landscape form that is inspired by geographic formations that are typical of the region’s topography. Composed of a series of terraces, it flows through the site and negotiates three main programmatic zones: one public, one private and one for services. The architecture appears to be carved out of the landscape and uses a crystalline geological language that aims at blurring the separation between the natural and the artificial.
The spatial experience is articulated through a sequence of different garden typologies (Janna, Bustan and Rawda) that lead you through the whole project in a winding itinerary, gradually revealing the totality of the landscape/architecture while remaining completely immersed in it.
The design INTEGRATES the solar panels into the architectural language of the project.
The technology is no longer just an add-on, but actually generates the design through the use of 4 roofs directed perfectly South and sloped at an optimal 25degrees for maximum energy generation.
