al khobar, saudi arabia
Royal Amwaj is a gated, seaside community development on a 1 million sq m waterfront site to the south of the city of Khobar, in the eastern Province of Saudi Arabia.
The scheme comprises a new residential community of high end villas, town houses, a boutique hotel as well as other leisure amenities.
An extensive waterfront with three tongue-shaped bays, give each villa its own direct see frontage. The design of the villas respects the local way of life while allowing it to adapt to future change. Moreover, the architecture of the villas is climate responsive in that it is properly organized and shaded to protect the interior and exterior spaces from the hot sun rays.
The natural cross ventilation strategies adopted enhance natural air circulation and provide a comfortable breeze when weather permits, allowing for substantial energy savings.
