THE AVENUES HOTEL & RESIDENCES Riyadh, Saudi Arabia 2016 Great public spaces are marked by great buildings. At the intersection of one of Riyadh’s most prominent thoroughfares, The Avenues Hotels & Residences will stand as a memorable gateway to the city of Riyadh and a glittering beacon to the Avenues project. The tower’s elegant forms and distinctive glittering facades will provide an iconic and memorable presence to pair with Riyadh’s newest premiere retail destination.


Aerial Perspective | Image courtesy of SOM


The Avenues Hotel & Residences marries structure, sustainability and aesthetic to form a delicate architectural language that carries from the ground to the crown of the building. The towers slender-tapered forms are punctuated by a cascade of stacked overhangs that facilitate the various programs along the height of the buildings. The overhangs push and pull from the face of the towers to provide passive shading for the rooms and residences, form a trellis for rooftop amenities and create grand canopies for the exclusive drop offs. These undulating architectural features simultaneously creates a distinct yet elegant form while providing a unified architectural expression.
