Diriyah Gate Bujairi Streetscapes

    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. 

    Green Riyadh

    We developed Design Guidelines for Riyadh City, covering nearly 2000km2, setting, specific strategic KPI’s for urban greening and shade and thermal comfort of city and neighbourhood parks, wadis, educational and health and wellbeing institutions, government areas, and roads and streetscapes.

     

    Development of plant supply strategy, nursery management and irrigation for sustainable achievement of Design Guide goals towards Saudi Vision 2030.

    ROSHN Front

    At nearly a kilometre long a cooling, partly covered landscape of plazas, gathering spaces and terraced lakes enhanced by vibrant lighting disperses footfall and encourages exploration, providing a high-quality lifestyle experience for visitors.

    With the KSA 2030 sustainability goals at its core, ROSHN Front looks to boost social engagement and outdoor living encouraging a healthy lifestyle.

    King Salman Park

    Competition winning design for a new heart of the city fostering Saudi productivity, creativity, and innovation for future generations – the park will be a destination that celebrates arts, culture, sports, entertainment, and innovation in a richly planted setting that will act as a green lung for the capital.

    The Park will integrate with and enhance the adjacent city fabric by extending landscape ‘tendrils’ linking it to surrounding neighbourhoods and, by the Metro system, to the wider city. The extensive open spaces will reflect and enhance local character, culture and planting, and provide inter-connected immersive experiences through visitor attractions such as museums and botanical gardens.

    Prince Turki Road

    Designed around SMART city principles this key arterial road in western Riyadh is given a renewed emphasis on public realm with shaded pocket parks and retail spill out.

    Paths and tracks meander through taking cyclists and pedestrians on a tree-lined journey away from vehicular traffic. A new sculptural bridge will connect both sides of the road creating a socially connected hive of activity.
