Our design proposal for an innovative affordable housing concept in the UAE. The scheme seeks to provide a new form of accommodation to the UAE that makes good quality housing affordable for key workers. Based around a concept of small but skilfully designed self-contained apartments the scheme optimises spaces usage to reduce construction and operations cost.
Communal terraces, cooking and dining areas provide a range of places for residents to get together and build a growing community. Sited between a student housing arrangement and built-to-rent accommodation the design offers a new type of quality housing for the region to improve the housing situation for a large part of the local population.
