In 1995, a unique residence emerged, deeply rooted in the Najdi architectural tradition, which is renowned for its simplicity and inherent connection to nature. This project, characterized by the timeless Salmani influence, beautifully revives the ecological and cultural ethos of traditional Najdi-rooted designs, while simultaneously infusing it with all the modern amenities essential for contemporary living.
At its core, the residence unfolds around a courtyard housing setup, ingeniously engineered to facilitate maximum interaction between the interior spaces and the exterior environment. Set against the backdrop of expansive desert-like landscape architecture, this design not only celebrates the traditional aesthetics but also seamlessly integrates it with modern engineering solutions.
The architectural imagery and interior design bear unmistakable hallmarks of the Najdi style, but what makes it truly stand out is its innovative contemporary interpretation. Through this project, the essence of traditional Salmani and Najdi-rooted architecture finds a fresh resonance, beautifully balanced with the advancements of modern engineering and landscape architecture.
