Damman Gate Highway Intersection, Saudi Arabia
Client: Advisian/ Saudi Aramco
Sunlight, in collaboration with Advisian, has developed the masterplan Dammam Intersection in Saudi Arabia.
The objective of the project is to transform the intersection into a vibrant landscape, a “land mark” that represents the ecosystems and landscapes of the Kingdom, and expresses the SAUDI ARAMCO philosophy of protection and conservation of nature for future generations.
The concept design takes into account the sustainability measures that are key to combating climate change and focus on reducing emissions, as well as the implementation of reduction measures such as natural sinks that absorb CO2.
For this reason, the design represents local and valuable landscapes such as the desert, the wadis and the oases. These landscapes merge with the star that represents the Aramco logo with a game of planting and light.
Design elements are based on the core value of sustainability: native and adapted tree planting with low requirements for water, gravel, local materials, and lighting powered by green energy.
