Al Tilal development *
The client brief was to provide as many villas as possible on the site with optimum views. Previously, a maximum of 475 villas was obtainable. By terraforming and sinking the whole site by eight metres, a secret garden was developed at the periphery. The edge wall, made by the depression, hosts climbing vegetation and waterfalls. Setting the villas into the hillsides allowed for 750 units, all with outlooks over the lower terraces. The project also incorporates a sport and retail complex and a school.
