Diriyah Gate Bujairi Streetscapes, KSA, Riyadh

    landscape design Diriyah Gate Bujairi Streetscapes, KSA, Riyadh

    These sensitively designed streetscapes within the setting of the At-Turaif WHS emphasise the extraordinary sense of place whilst respectfully providing routes through a culturally significant landscape that minimise archaeological erosion. 

    Cycle paths and walkways are lined with native grasses, palm trees and locally sourced stone. Designed to be inundated by infrequent natural flood events, stone terraces lift the streetside linear parks above the main flood level. This design met the challenge of integrating the spaces with the Formula E street racing circuit, creating a truly flexible urban environment.
