New Community, Business Center, Mixed-use, Public Parks, Sustainable Design Features
Luna Mare represents a dynamic plan for a new community in Energy City; a bold effort to create the world’s first integrated business center in Qatar.
The design goals for Luna Mare include integrating residents into a living, work, and entertainment community of walkable neighborhoods that support varied commercial and mixed-use development with a core of local residents. The multi-layered experience was designed in response to the client’s objective of a visual and physical network of intimate and interlaced spaces, grand plazas, public parks and unique environments. High priority was placed on utilizing a range of sustainable strategies to address issues of human comfort (cooling and shading in the desert climate), reduced energy consumption, water conservation, waste removal, and use of the region’s natural resources.
