One of the world’s most recognised names in architecture and design is realising Saudi Arabia’s vision for a ultra-luxury eco project. Amaala appoints Foster + Partners as Architectural Advisors. The award-winning architectural design firm will help achieve Amaala’s vision for an ultra-luxury destination.
Amaala, the ultra-luxury destination located along Saudi Arabia’s northwestern coastline, has announced the appointment of British award-winning architectural design and engineering firm, Foster + Partners. The firm will act as Architectural Advisors of the development.
Nested in Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 plan, the development of Amaala is being rolled out across three key phases, with completion of the destination ahead of the realisation of Saudi Vision 2030.
Saudi Vision 2030 is a plan to reduce Saudi Arabia’s dependence on oil, diversify its economy, and develop public service sectors such as health, education, infrastructure, recreation and tourism. Goals include reinforcing economic and investment activities, increasing non-oil industry trade between countries through goods and consumer products, and increasing government spending on the military, manufacturing equipment and ammunition.
Rooted in the philosophies of art, wellness, and the purity of the Red Sea, Amaala is set in the Prince Mohammed bin Salman Nature Reserve across three unique communities: Triple Bay, The Island, and The Coastal Development. The trio of communities will represent three different sets of experiences for visitors, with Foster + Partners responsible for innovative and sustainable design solutions across Amaala’s masterplans and projects.
Amaala seeks to strike an emotional chord with visitors through the creation of transformative experiences, individually curated to guests’ needs, while the exclusivity of the destination aligns it with those who are connoisseurs of fine living.
Senior Partner Stuart Latham of Foster + Partners, said: “The ambition and scale of the project is striking, and we’re excited to help the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with its vision for an unforgettable luxury experience which acknowledges the sensitive nature and ecological significance of the site for tourists from across the globe.”
Amaala resort is reinventing commonly experienced activities into an all-year-round destination based on the beauty and untouched nature of the Red Sea, extending the Mediterranean yachting season from October to December. Through its trio of communities, Amaala will establish a globally recognised hub for arts and culture with a focus on contemporary art, as well as the most comprehensive, integrated health, wellness and sports offering globally.
Triple Bay will offer a fully holistic wellness retreat, state-of-the-art diagnostic medical facilities and authentic treatments designed to feature the local environment. Triple Bay will also be home to a fully integrated sports and entertainment community.
The Coastal Development is set to become the defining hub of contemporary art in the Middle East, playing host to a dynamic programme of exciting events from the global arts and cultural calendar.
The Island will be the tranquil home of an exclusive art community, set amid an Arabic botanical garden complemented by a collection of sculptural pieces.
