Arabian Chevron Compound
The site of this project is located on a plot of land where an old farm used to be, on the banks of the wadi that laps on parts of Dariyah; city of the origin of Saudi modern history. The old mud buildings have been restored giving prominence to the original typology. The shape of the buildings, the use of wooden trellis work, the perforated dividing walls, the symbolic reminiscence of Musharabia, the central chimney: all seem to interlace a dialogue with the ancient architecture from which they are so far-off. The materials used in the finishing have been intentionally chosen to be humble, but rich in handicraft and workmanship quality.
