On an eight-hectare plot in Southern Ridges, the residential complex rounds off a nine-kilometer green belt filled with parks and recreational facilities. Thirty-one apartment blocks, each six stories high and of the same length, are stacked in a hexagonal arrangement around eight generous courtyards. These interlocking blocks create a vertical village with a multitude of shared outdoor spaces at different levels. While privacy in the individual apartments is guaranteed by the separation of the blocks, the project creates an interactive network of outdoor spaces around courtyards, which reflect the natural landscape.
The 170,000-square-meter development includes 1,040 residential units of different sizes, with views over the park, the city and the sea, and is designed based on environmental analyses of sunning, wind and microclimate conditions based on passive strategies. A variety of public amenities dots the landscape, offering opportunities for social interaction and shared activities while at the same time providing private spaces, reuniting the desire for individual privacy with a sense of community and togertheness.
