The purpose of this project was to create an office building, and a restaurant space that both prioritized individual wellness and access to green.

The first, the Green Riyadh Compound, an office building for the Riyadh park department, borrows strategies from vernacular walled gardens. The Green Riyadh compound seeks to demonstrate how old tradition can be beneficial in imagining a new strategy for greening the city.

The second building (The Citadel) is a restaurant space that takes on the concept of a fortification on hill. Restaurants are raised above the park with an internal courtyard.
