DAR JEDDAH Private Villa DAR JEDDAH is a signature house that is designed as a unique modern house within the elegancy of the Traditional Arabesque Architecture. However, DAR JEDDAH derives its strength from the dramatic experience that resulted from the transition between the various volumetric spaces from one to another; this unique experience is inspired from the old Islamic urban cities. Walking through several spaces narrow foyer, svelte pocket garden, big open space that strikethrough the main court that ultimately becomes the cementing feature that triggered aesthetics beyond the utilitarian. Suggestive Push and Pull Forms are balanced through monolithic forward imposing elements and between withdrawn reclusive ones creating deep shadows and deep expansive processional approach space. Thus, the main view of the house from the street consists of the two protruded heavy walls that are based on the main front fence to offer privacy for the garden, yet those two heavy walls are covered with a light elegant wooden canopy that reduces the building massiveness and covers the pocket garden as a shedding device. The center of the main façade is carved with an amazing Islamic pattern artwork that gives the house its characteristic identity. In addition, DAR JEDDAH consists of rich homogeneous materials: Jerusalem stone, brass and special treated wood. These materials create warmness, coziness and add serenity to the place. The internal spaces of the house flow freely, both horizontally and vertically, the house consists of one basement floor for services and car parking, ground floor for formal use, first floor privet use and finally annex for the maids. Finally, DAR JEDDAH house is a result of the integration between the Modern Contemporary Architecture with the Traditional Arabesque Architecture.

NESAJ Residential Villa SC The brief was of similar nature to common private villas but what was proposed is a minimal design and modern layout. The architecture is a mixture of alternate walls finished with stone cladding and light paint. Perimeter walls high enough to prevent direct visual from the streets and to entigrate the driver’s room within the wall, also the wall has been treated with modern minimal aesthetic, an interlace of oversized wooden gate, textured stone, and white-painted wall to balance the holistic design. The building design is expressed in contemporary architecture to appeal to younger Saudi families.

ARRAY Business Park Array Business Park is two (2) mirrored buildings of staggered, tri-level modular office blocks. The linear lot, located in the corner of Sari and King road, has dimensions of 82 x 280 meters, limiting the construction to a linear layout. HAK conceived a site plan wherein two buildings are mirrored along an open pedestrianized driveway and parking in the middle. The modular blocks was designed under the parameters of prevailing minimum office space demand and projected leasing returns. To achieve an innovative design, HAK developed a modular office blocks that were lined up in a staggered layout, creating a uniform but interesting faรงade of modernist architecture. The use of blank walls and aluminium-louvered glass compliments the geometric forms while ensuring privacy amidst the daylighting intent. Each office module has two mirrored units served by a stair and dedicated lifts , with each of the G+2 floors having dedicated pantry and washrooms. One of the design feature is the provision of open green space at the ground level , a private breathing space for the tenants , which is confined within the perimeter wall of the particular module. The modules was dsigned to offer an average of 340 sqm of office usable space.

AL TAHLIA DEVELOPMENT Concept Masterplan | Urban Composed of 12 blocks of prime commercial complex at the intersection of King’s Road and Tahlia Street, HAK was asked to conduct a development study for the entire property with the end product being a development program that will solicit optimum use and profit for the Client. With the existing blocks and gridlock street networks limiting the potential for expansion to vertical structures, HAK instead proposed that the axial corridors be pedestrianized to create more usable open spaces and improve the energy and commercial use of the site. The study focused on the main access from the major roads, and internal circulation as well as specific entries to address vehicular movement and designating most parking on the basements and parking building that allow more pedestrian on-ground movement. This in turn translates to an expanded option for retail use because of better people movement and convenience, allowing neighborhood retail,al-fresco dining,and community services to be po sible, and offering vibrant, high-quality places. Urban design direction is also part of this exercise. HAK also proposed concept building plans and density distribution along the complex based on allowable FAR’S, as well as zoning strategies to determine tenant-mix, lease rate schedule based on location, and projected cost of development.
