Al Mashtal Mixed Use Development
Abu Dhabi, UAE
CRJA-IBI Group provided landscape architectural services for external landscape features surrounding the buildings and the shaded “retail street/souk” that runs through this commercial mixed-use development complex in Abu Dhabi, U.A.E. When complete, the complex will comprise 120,000 sq m of high quality urban landscape surrounding private residences, office towers, a boutique hotel, and a podium building.
In an effort to continue Sheik Zayad’s commitment to, and respect for, Abu Dhabi’s natural environment, sustainable development is key to the development of this complex. The designers incorporated various environmentally friendly strategies into the design, such as natural ventilation and passive cooling. The project’s material palette also takes full advantage of the site’s natural character.
