In this design project the brief was for a masterplan and design
for a community housing project located on the Arabian Gulf,
Saudi Arabia.


The brief called for 500 houses of varying size and mixed use
between local muslim and expatriate also with the provision of
schools, a mosque and a souk.


The local muslim housing design became a fusion of traditional
high density traditional islamic housing but with the integration
of car parking to create a hybrid solution.


Traditional methods of environmental control have been used
including the use of wind towers to cool the houses.
