The semipublic central green zone in the design frames a new part of the city. Wadis are used as a buffer and infiltration system and smoothly connect the private areas of the dwellings with the semipublic central park areas.

The masterplan provides a varied residential programme of single-family homes, duplex dwellings and assistance homes. The urban park villas in the central green zone stimulate collective living.
