Al Qilada

Jeddah, Saudi Arabia

return to projects

Al Qilada will create the landscape benchmark for Jeddah residential developments by creating a series of interconnected, richly diverse and inviting, green spaces that create delight and joy, promote a sense of community, increase health and wellbeing and provide opportunities for leisure and recreation for all ages.

The design principles bring together thermal comfort solutions with connectivity, creating a series of green threads and parks that provide comfortable pedestrian and cycling routes. These links lead to the magnetic green spine of the development, the Necklace Park, a linear park at the heart of the project that responds to the masterplan zones to accommodate residential and mixed uses.

Key design principles:

  • A landscape that provides opportunities for leisure and recreation for different age ranges through the creation of different residential courtyards.

  • A landscape which is a strong fit with the Neighbourhood and the Kinan Park Development.

  • Creation of a linear park which takes inspiration from the traditional Arabic Necklace Designs.

  • An ecologically sound landscape that combines natural and informal play spaces, topography, community gardens and sports and gym grounds for residents to use.
