Masterplan of the villages

Nouf Abhur, Saudi Arabia

A vision for a sustainable urban village by the Red Sea

For many years our client has been promoting new ways of thinking about sustainable development throughout the Middle East. At Nouf Abhur that vision is at the core of a new development that is to be constructed on the shore of the Red Sea.

Here we are helping to lead a team, developing a plan that will bring development forward. The village will be arranged around a series of streets and spaces sitting comfortably with the local topography, sea edge and climatic conditions. This natural urban form sets the sustainable DNA for this place allowing the other challenges of sustainability - water consumption, power and waste - to be tacked within the built form.
