Al Ain Ghenaima Emirati Housing
Located in the Al Ghareeba region of Al Ain—less than 15 kilometers from Al Ain town center—this residential development caters to Emirati families by responding to the regional culture and environment. The development itself is divided into two distinct zones. The first comprises 200 Islamic-inspired Villas, designed with sloped tile roofs and a warm color palette. The second zone contains 400 Contemporary Villas, featuring flat roofs and cool colors.
Both villa types offer spacious living and sleeping areas on two levels, with natural lighting and ventilation set off by green space at the front and back. Both the community and development are designed to meet the requirements of Estidama (a similar system to LEED in the USA), and will achieve a ‘2 Pearl’ rating. In keeping with this rating, the design reduces the project’s demand on natural resources, while reducing or eliminating hazardous construction materials. Villas are also centrally located to amenities such as parks and schools, which will increase walk ability. Through thoughtful initiatives such as these, the overall community will provide a higher quality of life for residents.
