Samama villa complex posed a particular challenge to the Qdesign team: optimizing the usage of space to increase the commercial viability of the project. The design strategy was largely driven by repurposing unnecessarily large villas into more versatile and attractive apartments. By separating villas into smaller apartments, Qdesign architects were able to multiply the number of residential units by two (from 100 to 200). Furthermore, the urban designers at Qdesign entirely renovated the project starting with the facades which gave each apartment its unique identity, in addition to reimagining the landscaping and public areas to align the new private entrances for the apartments.
