AL SIRAJ PLAZA
The concept for this project is inspired by traditional Omani architecture. Historically, Omani dwellings are clustered as dense patterns with stepped terraces oriented to maximise shade and to capture the cooling breeze.
Our design reinterprets these traditional urban strategies in a sustainable design. The structural grid is rotated towards the prevailing winds and interlocking stepped units provide terraces and much needed protection from direct sunlight. By adhering to these traditional principles, the design creates a dynamic yet comfortable living and working environment.
