Kalba Quarry Park

Set amongst the jagged and majestic Al Hajar mountain range, WAHO was appointed to regenerate the quarry in to a public park and lake area.

In the masterplan, the centrepiece of the site is an organically shaped lake formed out of the quarry. A community building is located to the top of the terraces overlooking the lake. Inspired by the form of the quarry, the terraces and building reference its sharp and angular shapes.
