Concept

• a flat piazza-like central hub, where the views are unobstructed

and allow visual connections through the entire site

• souq-like spaces (narrow and shaded) to promote the retail

component of the project

• a desert/ wadi-inspired design language for the architecture of

the central hub that is characterised by:

- fluidity

- alternating levels

- naturally shaded canopies

- alternating landscape/ hardscape and water-scape

• provisions for handicapped people embedded throughout the

entire site as part of the design

The lower level spaces are designed to be large and comfortable, in such a way, that allows light

and air to penetrate the “ground level platform” and thus give a feeling that this is indeed the

ground level of the project.

These spaces can host from outdoor F&B venues to larger public gatherings such as outdoor

exhibitions and temporary markets as well as concerts and festivals.
