AL AREDH QASR

Cities: RIYADH
Countries: SAUDI ARABIA
Work in Progress - Progetto Architettonico: SCHIATTARELLA ASSOCIATI
The project is focused on the characteristics of the surrounding area that strongly contributed to the design idea, starting from the “symbols” of Saudi cultural identity and meaning the formal elements which reflect that identity. This is why the Palace has got both the majesty of a ceremonial structure and a clearly defined functional layout. The simple, basic volumes are organized in a fishbone layout along a central route that starts from the entrance hall, following the north-south orientation and taking advantage of natural light, which penetrates deep inside the spaces, producing chromatic and chiaroscuro effects of noteworthy impact and defining a surprisingly varied architectural landscape.
