200 Housing units and facilities in the desert - Abunjeym (Libya)

Master plan (Tripoli)

DescriptionGalleryDetails


This Master plan project has been created in 2010. All public functions in the new settlement are planned according to revised Libyan urban planning standards. The urban concept is a mixed-use concept, where small public functions are integrated in the housing areas. All housing units have one floor while public buildings can have up to two floors. The main facilities are located in the center within a walking distance range; commercial facilities instead are spread out over the settlement.

In order to obtain a human scale of public spaces, street profiles are diversified. Alternatively pedestrians can use shortcuts passing through the neighborhoods. Different roof levels allow a soft movement of the urban landscape.
