A residential scheme on the beach of Al Marjan (a man-made island off the coast of RAK, UAE). The villas have direct access to it and the apartments are located just behind these with views and access to the beach.
This 10 Acre residential development houses 368 apartments of 1800 sq.ft each. The low-rise design is organised around courtyards to maintain the scale to human proportion. A commercial structure at one end accommodates retail outlets, gymnasium, spa, food court, cafes and a rooftop pool. A kindergarten is tucked away , for the community children to remain within the secure perimeter of the development.
The Courtyards play the most important role in the design of the complex. Each courtyard serves the following functions :
- Open Spaces between buildings
- Screens offering privacy to opposite buildings
- Space for recreation of different age groups
- Most importantly , they serve to bring beauty and nature to the people living around them.
Each of the four central open spaces have been given a distinct identity. The four themes selected are Japanese, French, Mediterranean and Tropical. The layout, forms, material, feature elements and plantation, all have been selected to achieve the desired effect.
180 apartments spread over 20 floors are planned at an upcoming part of Dubai called Jumeirah Village Circle (JVC).
