Location: Riyadh – Saudi Arabia
Project Area: 12,000 sqm
The curvature of the building is inspired by Mercedes car organic curvatures and signalize the speed and dynamism of the car brand. The building is also the biggest showroom for Mercedes Benz in saudi- which further legitimizes the dynamic architecture.
Functionally the building is a combined office building, car salesroom and workshop. Formally we worked with the idea to work with dynamic curves, with each office floor offset in and out independently with its own curvature – inspired by the speed and dynamic which characterizes moving traffic. The Roof shell structure is supported by perimter steel columns that mimic the palm tree presence in the area.
