This particular project consisted of the preparation of two alternative façade renovation design concepts; concerning an existing building situated in one of the most popular commercial streets of Riyadh in Saudi Arabia.
The building has three levels (ground floor and two floors) and initially was designed to host retail shops at the ground floor and office or/and apartments facilities at the upper levels.
Client’s aspiration was to add a space of more 1.000 m2 by completing the second level and to construct a roof garden, at the top of the building (as a third floor). Our Client was willing to host exclusive restaurant facilities in all levels after the façades renovation.
At the same time, a Main Entrance should be designed as a designated element of the building.
Provided design options were aimed to a radical transformation of the building’s appearance and design character by creating a modern landmark; however the structural frame remained without any destruction.
Special care was given to the provision of a green roof garden but also to the creation of a new main Entrance for the building which separating the side elevation in to two different entities.
