AL KHALIDIYA PARK
PROJECT DESCRIPTION :
LOCATED AT THE HEART OF ABU DHABI'S CITY CENTER.
THE IDEA OF THE COMPETITION WAS TO RETHINK AND REIMAGINE SHEIKHA FATIMA'S PARK INTO A REVITALIZING AND VIBRANT EXPERIENCE WITHIN THE CITY.
WP FOCUSED ON THREE POINTS:
- establishing a proper and natural connection with its surrounding
- introducing retails and coffee shops to add value and interest points
- diversifying between green areas, water surfaces and playground
placing the shops at the perimeter protected the park from noise and visual pollution; but keeping an impermeable skin to the park would be counterproductive, thus separating each "box" generated negative spaces that would act as "pores" to allow the park to breath. finally a main axis was added to the project with a generous entrance to which distributed into different patches of small biospheres such as water surfaces, playgrounds, green shaded areas, etc... would add to a rich experience suited for each type of visitor ranging from adults to infants.
