Shaza Riyadh Residences

LOCATION: Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
STATUS: Finished
YEAR: 2016

The interior design of the Shaza Hotels brand is inspired by the cultures and tales of the Silk Route but offering a contemporary and luxurious twist from the traditional architecture, art, values and hospitality of the region. For Shaza Riyadh Residences, the design concept is strongly linked to the neighboring Grand Mosque of Al Rajhi, the most important in the city influenced by Spanish and Moroccan architecture. The Andalusian riad, a type of traditional construction with the courtyard as a centerpoint, is mirrored in the interior design, with the inclusion of luscious greenery and water elements as well as Arab lattices and Moorish arches present in walls and ceilings. 

This tradition meets the contemporary design language to offer an atmospheric environment which translates into a unique and unforgettable experience by following the riad structure and upgrading it with a sumptuous yet hospitable environment that honors the welcoming spirit of the region. The intricate design achieves the feeling of being immersed in an oasis for both leisure guests who enjoy the sunlit hammam-inspired health center and those staying for travel or business purposes.

With a total of 205 units, the apartments also feature intricate patterns in walls and rugs. However, the main design elements of these spaces are the neutral colors and the brightness of the rooms, as the aim is to provide a peaceful environment and luxurious rest. Other elements of the program include a convention center and a health club. Conceived for both short and long stays, they include facilities like walk-in wardrobes and kitchenettes.
