The inspiration for the design is a traditional Libyan courtyard garden. The buildings on the site are carefully oriented around a large outdoor courtyard with intimate and shaded plazas. Sidewalks and plazas within will be vibrant with sidewalk cafes, restaurants, retail kiosks, outdoor seating, and water features. It is the interpretation of the best Tripoli has to offer.

Cars are allowed to enter the courtyard, and vehicle drop-off is provided at each building lobby, the emphasis at the ground level is on pedestrian activity. Parking is out-of-sight, located underground or behind the commercial spaces. Vehicular traffic is also slowed, in order to make the outdoor spaces safer for pedestrians and to create a quiet, enjoyable environment within the courtyard.
