1996 - Inspired by the simplicity of Najdi architecture, this residence revives the ecological and cultural values of the traditional architecture while providing all the services and amenities required for contemporary luxury living.
The project is characterized by arranging the various functions in a linear relationship, which allows maximum interaction between the inside and the outside. This cluster of buildings is set amidst extensive desert-type landscaping, which echoes local wadi Hanifa settings. The architectural image is clearly inspired by Najdi architectural proportions and details in an innovative contemporary interpretation.
