KINGDOM TOWER MASTERPLAN, JEDDAH, KSA

Ivar Krasinski was Lead Designer and Master Planner contracted to GAJ for this project

Lead Architect and Master Planner: Ivar Krasinski contracted to GAJ Site Area: 500 ha
GFA: 12 Million square meters (120 Million sf)
The plan is focused on a tower megastructure, with the physical alignment of this tower with nearby contextual landmarks creating three major axis which provide focal water bodies which organize all surrounding development. The entire plan is pedestrian-friendly with a hierarchy of spaces from public to semi public, semi private and private allowing ease of use and cultural sensitivity on all levels of open space. Ample shading and active streets encourage pedestrian movement and an active mixed use hub at the center provides day and night activity on a scale unprecedented in the city where the project is located.
