The Sawaber Project(1976)

Kuwait City, Kuwait
National Housing Authority of Kuwait



The Sawaber Project was initiated as part of the National Housing Authority of Kuwait to provide housing in the city to encourage families to reside in the capital's centre. The site consists of approximately 24.5 hectares and is surrounded by existing mixed-use development with a 3.5 ha cemetery in the centre. The medium density and medium rise residential community was planned for approximately 5 000 people in 900 units for average income families. The east-west orientation minimizes the harsh effects of the sun and sandstorms, while giving the project a defined urban form, community, and visual privacy.
