The initial masterplan brief was how best to utilise the site to generate revenues to support the wider aspirations of Aga Khan University. This involves advanced plant breeding and seed production facilities developed on part of the property, as well providing a Development Strategy Framework for the rest of the site. This framework considers the potential land uses for the site, taking into account its landscape, ecology and topography. Another consideration was the context, including the nature and scale of adjacent development, visual impact, sustainability and security issues.
Our design provides approximately 2,000-2,500 dwellings. These will be a mixture of apartments and houses, ranging from individual plots to affordable housing units, in a range of tenures and sizes with a maximum of four storeys in height. We have also designed a vibrant mix of non-residential facilities to create a lively, balanced community.
