Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
The beach promenade in the cultural district of Saadiyat Island represents living and entertainment within walking distance of several world class museums and luxury retail – a mixture unrivalled in the world. Located just minutes’ drive from the capitals downtown, Saadiyat offers pristine beaches, world class museums and breathtaking resorts. The goal is to create a memorable sense of place that captures the vitality of places like South Beach in Miami, and represents the character of the cultural district. The look to achieve is a public realm that blurs the line between public and private – with a park, promenade, plazas, and sikkas that are welcoming to residents, patrons, guests, and beachgoers alike.
