Ain Al Fayda Housing

Al Ain, UAE
2009

The design of the residential units, which includes 2000 units of government housing, have been based on extensive research on Emirati housing typologies in the region to identify Emirati living needs and cultural requirements - especially in the context of Al Ain. This has helped in developing housing proto-types that not only create a vibrant living environment but also a strong sense of neighborhood. Based on the research, the design of the houses responds to sensitive cultural issues like privacy, future expansion, flexibility and social interaction.
