Hittin Park

In the site there are still the traces of the original configuration of the cliffs leading towards the Wadi Hanifa. Where the original configuration has been erased from earth movements that have affected the intervention area, the idea is nevertheless to recover the memory by recreating a natural setting and placing it at the heart of the intervention.

Inspired by the typical features of the wadi, which traditionally was essential to Najd settlements, we decided that our project must have green core in the lower part of the site. A Wadi with its extensions, therefore, becomes the center and also the element at the base of the whole territorial system, a sign that gives meaning to the whole landscape. This green core will act as a mending and buffer zone, between the different functions of the development.
