Marassi - Bahrain

The developer’s goal is to create a ‘landmark’ mixed use residential development covering an area of 88 hectares, within the community of Diyah Al Muharraq Island. The success of this, as a workable, comfortable place to live will be partially dependent upon the presence of an exciting public realm that is accessible, navigable and offers year round program for the evolving community.


The Public Realm component, as defined
for the public realm scope, includes
streetscape Right of Way (ROW), and
public open spaces (which include the
promenade and a network of parks and
open spaces).

Original inspiration built around Bahrain’s
history, nature and culture, influencing
the colours, shapes and forms expressed
within the public realm. These respond to
the following key drivers:
• The beach front destination and activity
• Physical and visual connections
between the beach and the
developments interior
• Free flowing geometry
