Al Hamra Private Villa
The project is located in a very nice and calm location in Jeddah. There were two approaches to designing this house, the first takes the traditional Andalusian architectural style and translates it into an abstract contemporary canvas that encapsulates the beauty and grace and lightness of the space, showcasing the traditional architectural elements within a transparent and fluid environment. The second approach was more definitive heritage Andalusian architecture. The focus was on the hierarchy of spaces from semi-private to private, depth of view, and axiality and framing views. The forms and masses respect the traditional architectural language and are a more literal representation of the style. In this concept, interior and exterior wall treatments and surfaces reflected the highly ornate style of the Andalusian era.
Classical Islamic Private Palace
Located in the heart of Al Falah district in the city of Riyadh, this beautiful luxurious mansion has double-height spaces, guest lounges, and spacious suites. Surrounded by very rich and verdant landscape areas, the spaces embrace views from all directions. Each furniture and fabric piece was chosen very carefully, and some furniture pieces were designed by NBA as ultra-rich feature objects representing focal points for each space.
Classical Andalusian Private Palace
The Islamic period in Spain marked a rich heritage of beautiful palaces, mosques, minarets and fortresses in Andalusia. This palace is no different in its approach where that rich history compliments its design features and details. The key phrase here is “Eye-catching monumental living”. The palace takes the original aesthetics of Andalusia with a hint of a contemporary approach and heritage. There is a major focus on water features and open outdoor spaces. The whole project is like a journey through history that takes you through mesmerizing patterns and geometry.
