This scheme design is part of the city-wide expansion plan for Jubail in Saudi Arabia. In a scheme of this size, it was important to emphasise the value of variety. Several house types were developed in collaboration with the client. To break-up the large scale of this development, we divided the houses into separate character areas. Homes in each of these areas have their own distinct style and shape, with many different floor plans and layouts. This will allow the areas to be easily distinguishable from one another whilst also promoting a sense of place for the people who will live there. It was important that the housing layouts upheld and promoted the values of Saudi culture. We worked with the Royal Commission to create contemporary designs, which had levels of privacy and density that were appropriate for the area. It is expected that the finished development will achieve LEED Gold status, making it very sustainable.
