Al Taif masterplan, KSA

 

The Client's intent is to create a resort community that will attract the inhabitants of the western coast of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, as well as the inhabitants of other cities such as Jeddah and Riyadh.
 
The 500-hectare site, located at an altitude of 1500m, combines picturesque landscapes and vegetation with a pleasant climatic setting. Some of the proposed functions include a theme park, horseback riding, water sports activities, as well as the project’s center, which consists of a mall, a hotel and a spa
 
The approach to vegetation proposed in this master-plan aims at providing a contextual environment that requires low maintenance. A main central circulation spine extends throughout the site and links the program components together. This circulation spine provides a space for walking, riding bicycles and driving electric cars that do not pollute the environment.
