The Al Bandar Master Plan highlights IBI Group’s global collaboration across three continents, providing a holistic vision for a contemporary, mixed-use community in Oman, balancing tradition with modernity. Challenges included flood risk, significant elevations, heritage and the lack of existing infrastructure. IBI Group’s masterplan exemplifies design excellence, creativity and innovation. Oman’s unique heritage is embraced and a focus on sustainability is realised in a comprehensive public realm and landscape design for walkable streetscapes and open spaces, mitigating climatic conditions and flood risk. Al Bandar is a ‘smart community’ with universal internet access, smart street furnishings, green infrastructure, and solar-power generation.
