The project is located in Al Najaf, Iraq, on the important access between Al Mayadin Park and the shrine of Al Imam Ali. The concept was to put a big rectangular mass in the center of the land, surround it by green areas, and divide it into several blocks by a main central axis of movement, each block has its distinguished feature. The building contains several facilities like shops, restaurants, stores and kids playgrounds. Green areas and traditional courtyards were added to create breathing spaces in the building. In order to protect the building from direct sun during summer we used horizontal and vertical elements on the building’s facades .Moreover the building contains attraction elements such as gathering areas, meeting places, and sports areas.
