Urban planning & tourism

This huge tourism project in Saoudi Arabia was commissioned by Monsha'at office to developpe strategies and opportunities on its west end side territory.

Working closely with AECOM uk, we developped a full analysis on various terrain regarding their capacity, connexion, energy, environnement, heritage... to then highlight general strategies and design 9 typical locations accross the land.

Our approach focused on designing with the existing landscape, consider nature as a real treasure (desert ecology, biodiversity mapping...), understanding local heritage and protect site integrity, inculde waste management control with the objective of zero waste to landfill, habitat creation around lake and wadis combined with food production to minimise food imports.
