INTRODUCTION TO AL LIWAN
About the Project
Al Liwan embodies the essence of the ‘Live, Work and Play’ lifestyle. Nestled within the neighborhoods of Hamala in Bahrain, the development is firmly connected to its context.
Derived from the deep-rooted Arabian culture, the name Al Liwan reflects cohesion, unity and getting together, as it signifies the yard located in the center of old homes in this region, where family members used to gather for feasts; this reflects the essence of Al Liwan project; providing a space to gather with a family atmosphere.
Surrounded by residential developments, schools and adjacent to transport links to greater Bahrain, Al Liwan will act as a focal point to the surrounding area for shopping, meeting and relaxing. A main Boulevard runs through the site connecting various uses of retail, restaurants, coffee shops and entertainment.
Parking is abundant and located evenly around the site. Street front promenades are pedestrian scale and have been landscaped to provide a green comfort zone between roads and buildings. Kinetic water features and dramatic lighting are used throughout the scheme to create a playful environment and enhance end users’ experiences.
The heart of the project is the Central Plaza, a spacious courtyard linked to all points of the development and designed for public gatherings and entertainment.
The site is located in Hamala, in the northern governorate of the Kingdom of Bahrain. The main road leading to Al Liwan is the Wali Al Ahd Highway which provides direct access to the plot. Al Liwan is designed as an outdoor mixed-use development with full access to vehicles, which makes it more of an urban development project with public landscaped spaces, all within a comfortable “village” family/friendly environment catering to all ages.
Masterplan & Site Access
The masterplan has been developed with the concept of courtyards in mind, linking breezy spaces through a narrow permeable layout of low scale buildings.
The courtyards offer areas of relaxation and activity while providing shelter from the harsh region climate. The massing and orientation of the buildings enhances the protective quality of the external spaces, while improving pedestrian comfort through shading and natural ventilation. The development’s architecture, modern yet reflecting the low scale geometry and pattern of Bahraini style, is a series of deep overhangs, recesses and movable screen elements while the material palette is lightly colored to reflect the strong sun and reduce heat gain occupants.
