Category: Masterplan/Architecture | Location: Eko Atlantic City | Area: 252,000m2 | Project Type: Mixed Use/Residential/Commercial | Concept Design
Urban Village Living project is located at a prime location of the Eko Atlantic City Project. Eko Atlantic City is a land reclamation project extending over ten square kilometres which will support a new urban development the size of the Manhattan district of New York City.
Based on the Owner/Client Eko Atlantic masterplan, the Eko Village project area of intervention is around 95,000m2. The planning and design approach will be in sequence and incorporating planning and design concepts as well as landscaping, lighting, urban furniture, as well as interiors which will be further detailed during concept and schematic delivery.
The design brief of the Eko Village project calls for a pedestrian friendly, mixed use, Low to Medium rise development (maximum 10 floors). It will therefore allow for a mainly residential program, carefully mixed with retail areas to animate the streets. The brief also includes a communal club house (comprising a gym, squash courts, one large pool and one small pool for children), landscaping, urban furniture, and underground car parks (two levels of underground parking).
The programming focus will be to create a comprehensive site and program strategy for the project area. The design efforts will be channelled to develop unique façade concepts for the various zones, neighbourhoods, or clusters therefore emphasizing the dynamic village living within an urban account.
The residential design program will investigate a mixture of studio, one bedroom, two bedroom as well as three bedroom apartments.
