The “Holiday Homes” competition project is located in the “Yamaniya Heights” hills facing the Red Sea, in the Coral Cost Zone that falls under planning regulations now in force in the Aqaba Special Economic Zone (ASEZ).
Our project fits into a landscaped environment that responds to climate, topography and sea view conditions. The proposed urban design generates a contemporary contextual architecture, composed of more than 200 dwellings to be built in a series of typologies that range from single-family detached villas to semi-detached and cluster type town houses. They are serviced with community facilities such as a clubhouse and a communal park. The latter is connected to the residential units with a public pedestrian network combined with jogging and bicycle tracks.
