Resort and Residential Island Community

Role: Project Designer

The program for this 110-acre master plan contained mostly private residential villa lots next to a high density urban center.  A small 5-star boutique resort hotel with free-standing cottages, a small retail entertainment area, and a marina were also integrated into this proposed island community.  The peninsula-shaped islands helped to maximize sea frontage for each villa.


The proposed design utilized innovative landscaping and street scape to enhance the marketability of this prime waterfront location while also taking into account the local environmental traditions particular to this region as well as the culture and lifestyle pertaining to the GCC Region.
