The Project is a planning development of 30,000m2 lot which connects the old residential quarter and Al-Hafayer Historical area. In order to generate active commercial, cultural, social and tourists activities.
The program consists of shops, restaurants, cafes, 3 stars motel, offices and Mosque.
Our basic idea of the urban planning concept is a series of varied urban spaces and visual points of interest (northern gate, octagonal corner, the tree plaza, twin mashrabiyya, Birkah plaza, and finally the Minaret) that occupy strategic locations that would orient pedestrians and themselves enhance the beauty of the public plazas (sahat).
