Project Name: JBR, The Walk
Client: Dubai Properties
Cracknell were appointed as public realm and landscape consultants for Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR) ‘The Walk’ and led the design from vision and concept through to construction.
A dynamic public realm design successfully achieved the vision to connect 300 retail, dining and leisure outlets along this pedestrianised street. The concept centred on linking a series of visual experiences along The Walk. This was achieved through a mix of landscape elements such as small water features to large iconic fountains, and a series of open piazzas for entertainment and weekend markets.
A rich paving pattern and bespoke furniture further created a unique character to this development.
“Landscape architects bring spaces to life for society as well as shape human interaction. Championing projects such as JBR The Walk in Dubai, Cracknell demonstrates with such clarity how it is not about the buildings themselves but about the spaces between the buildings that provide the context for creating a vibrant urban lifestyle."
