Masdar City is a living, working community where residents, academics, and business professionals live, learn, work and play in an environment that pushes the boundaries of sustainable design, construction, and operation.
The city contains one of the largest clusters of low-carbon buildings in the world. Buildings are designed to high sustainability standards and certified by the Department of Municipalities and Transport’s (DMT) Estidama, or LEED green building rating systems. Community amenities are certified under DMT’s Estidama Pearl Community Rating System.
By re-thinking a pedestrian first environment the proposed design strategy is to connect the neighborhood areas by creating a lively social urban loop. It is development of 708 Apartments, 679 Townhouses, 174Villas. The design also takes into consideration sustainability by controlling the micro climate through landscaping elements, the building design and orientation.
The design approach for this project is to re-invent traditions for a contemporary lifestyle. Blending culture, modern design, sustainability and landscape into one unique living experience.
