The Scope of NEOM’s Aquellum Project Design


NEOM’s Aquellum seeks to push the boundaries of conventional design and construction possibilities while maintaining biodiversity. The use of natural light and breathtaking illuminations to light up Aquellum is one of these ways. Its location in the mountain sets it up perfectly for receiving solar light during the day and occasionally lunar light from the moon. This subterranean digitalized community creates vibrancy and interconnectivity through seamlessly blending with the surrounding nature. Natural and eco-friendly light sources will be used to power Aquellum’s apartments, retail spaces, leisure and entertainment zones, and innovative hubs. This is guided by its unwavering commitment to crafting spaces in nature that epitomize the future of luxury, innovation, and lifestyle. Aquellum stands as a testament to the fusion of cutting-edge design and construction techniques.NEOM Aquellum
