Parc Dounya Master Plan and Town Center
Parc Dounya Town Center, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, located just outside Algiers is the largest mixed-use development in North Africa. The project is designed around a town center with pedestrian-scaled retail streets and buildings on individual parcels.
The project’s urban design is based upon Middle-Eastern urban design principles for creating a sense of enclosure to establish an intimate pedestrian environment.
Specifically, the project is designed around courts, streets and plazas the respect public/private traditions while responding to integrates indoors and outdoors to the climate through use of sun-shading and use of water.
The town center includes department stores, hotel and office buildings connected by ground floor retail.
