2007 – 2009

Duhaira District Masterplan

This Masterplan creates the new representative heart of the Saudi Capital, combining a strong vision for the future with a new image of modernity, innovative architectural solutions, connectivity with the surroundings and symbolic reference to the history. This complex project will be the starting point of the process of renewal of the entire center of Riyadh. The core of the project is outlined by three iconic towers, which are aligned with iconic buildings of the northern part of Riyadh, therefore creating a visual link in the skyline of the city. Between the three towers a central square becomes the space for celebrations.

From the central square, the north-south pedestrian spine and the west-east green corridors connect the project with the surroundings, forming the first pedestrian area of the city. The variety in the project’s layout is based on the combination of innovative fabrics with curved shape, traditional grid with north-south orientation and historical ‘organic’ road pattern.
