Moka aims to offer its visitors and residents a modern city that respects the regions’ rich history and beautiful natural environment. Discover the good governance measures which were set up to be in line with this objective.
A question of balance
Ever respectful of Moka’s history, the Smart City’s master plan strikes a balance between the old, the new, and the natural environment, to form a vibrant city focused on community living.
Our Challenge: to create an urban area where guidelines do not stifle individual expression but help build bridges between different interests.
What is a successful urban project?
A successful urban concept seamlessly blends its facilities, architecture, and the natural environment into a coherent whole for a sense of community and a comfortable lifestyle. For it to be a success, there should be no disconnect between its various elements.
How do we guarantee our quality standards?
Our various tools and procedures guarantee that projects within the Smart City respect our vision whilst allowing private investors and architects room to express their creative vision and individuality.
The Project Evaluation Committee
A Thorough Evaluation Process
Constant Quality Control
About our Project Evaluation Committee
The success of a project depends on architects as much as on individuals who are not directly involved in it’s conception. This is where the project evaluation committy steps in! The committee is composed of:
- Project Management Associations which help to manage neighbourhoods, and gives each owner the right to a vote
- A purchaser’s marketing team
- Technical teams
- Neighbourhood architects who help define the architectural specifications
- The ENL directors for a shared vision
- Moka City’s urban planner
This committee communicates its vision to all developers operating in Moka City and ensures that all are on the same page.
About our Urban Architect
Gabrielle Brun became Smart City Moka’s coordinator in 2018 and works in close collaboration with Nathan Iyer (from the Iyer architecture firm), who had already established the groundwork for the project years before.
Gabrielle’s daily mission is to embody the spirit of the project and make sure that the objectives which Moka City has set for itself are met. To achieve this goal, she relies on the urban planning regulations in place and the regulatory committee’s analysis on every project.
However, her primary role is to create a bridge between urban planning and architecture by helping all teams involved understand the Moka City vision by translating it in architectural terms. She also acts as a link between the various architects involved with Moka City in order to create a shared vision.
