Ajman, United Arab Emirates
Straddling the Ajman-Sharjah border and enjoying close proximity to the Sharjah International Airport, this large-scale development seeks to redefine suburban living.
The masterplan takes inspiration from the sloping contours of an amphitheatre. Orientated in a grand semi-circle, building heights gracefully graduate down from 35 storeys at the periphery, to five storeys or less near the centre.
The project's focal point is an idyllic lake, beautifully set within a central park – where a wealth of waterside attractions and recreational facilities entertain children and adults alike.
A cohesive, well-knit community, the project is internally arranged into different districts – connected by an efficient road network. Each neighbourhood enjoys a great degree of self-sufficiency in terms of communal facilities such as mosques, retail outlets, kindergarten schools and pleasant local parks.
