Majlis al Jinn Caves

Majlis al Jinn is a single chamber measuring about 310 meters by 225 meters, with a domed ceiling 120 meters high. This unique geological feature stands on a plateau hundreds of miles from the nearest city in Oman. We led a team including Austrian architects Ohnmacht Flamm Architekten and engineer Jane Wernick Associates, looking at the feasibility of creating a special, fully sustainable tourist experience, including a small hotel and limited access to the cave itself.
