MANAMA LAGOON// The introduction of architecture and landscaping of the residential section brings a new spectrum of color of smooth beige, clean white, forest greens to Manama Lagoon recreating, redefining and reemphasizing the site as a unique masterpiece in terms of its collective design elements. The use of gardens terracing from level to level, creates architecture of randomness and spontaneity blending it back to the parent framework of the Bahraini vernacular. The residential component emulates the Bahraini architecture with a series of rectilinear forms and geometrical planning on a micro level of the concentric grid derived from the master plan. The planning begins to address a centralized point on the space which then attempts to establish a modular grid in which each space and proportion is geometrically mapped creating pockets of intimate yet unique spaces with views towards the inner sanctions of lushly landscaped courtyards and water features looking out towards perfect views if the Bahraini water front edge conditions. The spectrums of color of the water and the sky in Bahrain ranging from deep blue to jade greens sets the beautifully enhanced framed backdrop of each living space to a level which exuberates a lifestyle above any other.
