LANDFORM house Project Completion

We are happy to let you know that our project LANDFORM house is completed!

LANDFORM house is characterized by its landscape strategy. Employing a formal vocabulary culled from the study of the region’s past indigenous civilizations, the residence recreates a complete ecosystem in order to introduce, protect and improve the proliferation of local wildlife by enhancing biodiversity in a dense desert city. Crucial cultural religious needs of Riyadh’s traditional way of living are addressed using contemporary architectural & environmental solutions. It focuses on local + healthy materials, native + low maintenance landscape, water reduction + recycling, and energy reduction + clean production.

It is in the process of becoming the first BREEAM certified villa in Riyadh, KSA!
