Seef Lusail Vertical Freej

Qatar, Doha
2016

Seef Lusail Vertical Freej is an experimental new housing typology for Qatari Nationals who seek a suburban private courtyard house even in the heart of Doha City.

Freej is an Arabic word meaning neighbourhood. The ‘vertical freej’ concept offers a communal in-between space for social interactions and active programs by creating a network of gardens, circulation patterns, voids, projections and protruding elements, giving the impression of a densely woven traditional Arab urban fabric.
