AGGREGATE SYSTEMS

Group Work. Riyadh. 2015-2016

Aggregate system is an interactive project that integrates the skills of engineering student from different majors to examine and build the first aggregate pavilion in the world. This one of a kind project is generated from the basic concept to the final implementation by a team consisting of more than 40 Alfaisal Engineering students leaded by the project founder, Ahmed Hassan and administrated by the Engineering Students Association Creative Team, Nada Saafan. This project aimed to make a 1:1 scale spatial structure using repetitive units made using only wooden sticks and plastic connecters. The units are then assembles aggregately to form spatial pavilion.

MNEMONIC HOUSE

Solo Work. Riyadh. 2014

The design of the house aims to provide its residents with a comfortable atmosphere through the separation of the private and public spaces into two different levels, linked by stairs inside the house. Due to the middle eastern dry weather, the house has an inner courtyard to cool the air. The vertical gardens outside of the house also helps in decreasing the temperature and cool the air. The seats at the pool have a strategic position as they are gaining advantage of the high leveled part of the house which provides them with shadow and their orientation makes them directly on the path of the north eastern wind that effectively changes the humidity of the local weather.

FLOATING HOUSE

Group Work. Riyadh. 2015

This Vacation house located in Denmark is made for a family of 3 members to enjoy and relax during their breaks. All the walls of the house are formed from exposed concrete so that it matches the main theme of "Nature" where everything there has no additions and all is in the very original beautiful form. Almost half of the exterior walls of the house are curtain walls so that they would frame the magnificent view of the lake nearby. The strips of light provide a spiritual feeling that would make the residents relax and feel serenity in that place.

Ground Floor Plan Scale: 1:100

The house is being raised on pilotis so that it could adapt easily to the rough surface of the mountains and not change them but intertwine with them. The pilotis from far also make the house show floating in the space around it. The free plan of the house makes the place feel so connected that it cuts any confusion and doesn't make the person feel lost in a maze. The orientation of the house was fixed so that it can collect as much heat as possible. That's why the southern facade is covered in glass yet the northern is hidden within the trees as to provide insulation from the heat and try to save as much heat inside the house as possible.

The house is designed as a small vacation house for a family of two for them to enjoy their time and relax, ridding them of their stress. The house is location in Saudi Arabia, so it is designed specifically for this weather and to ensure the comfort of the residents throughout the year. It was also designed to make the house as cool in the summer as possible, for Saudi Arabia summers are very warm and dry. The house consists of two overlapping masses that are connected with a spiral staircase which divides the house into two floors. The ground floor is designed to contain daily life activities while the first floor contains the private and quite areas.

INTERIOR DESIGN - KINDERGARTEN

Group Work. Riyadh. 2016

Abc Kindergarten We’ve decided to go with the element that the children would be using most of the time while studying; The Chair. In this case the chair will not simply be a chair, but also a toy for the students to play with and put back together when they are done. The idea of the chair stimulate the spirit of cooperation between the children as they use each others elements to make different forms and play with it. We got the idea of the chair from the old Japanese art (Origami). For the materials, we’ve used cardboard as it’s a safe material and light as a feather so children won’t face any problem while playing with it. The cardboard is covered with different colors of fabric, so it will be soft for their skin with colorful appearances, matching the colors of the kindergarten.

KAREMAH DESERT RESORT

Group Work. Riyadh. 2016-2017

Karemah Desert Resort overlooks the picturesque narrow valley known as Wadi Hanifa, which fills up with water during rainy seasons. Al-Diriyah is famous for its palm trees and topography. “Karemah” is an Arabic name for palm trees that grow near water. The design for the resort is based on integration of Islamic Architecture and contemporary design. The resort is for tourists and locals of all ages to enjoy and understand the beautiful culture of Saudi Arabia. Located in the outskirts of the historic district of AlDiriyah, Karemah Desert Resort is just 15 minutes away from cultural land notable attractions such as the Salawa Palace, At-Turaif Bath House, Mosim Park and Imam Mohammad bin Saud Mosque. Sustainability is ensuring that all recourses for upcoming generations are not being compensated while the current generation needs are met. The concept of sustainability is the foundation of Islamic architecture. Islamic architecture is sustainable and promotes sustainability, economically, environmentally, socially, and spiritually. “the relationship between man and the environment should be as sincere and upright as practical and rightly posed”. Karemah Desert Resort is a comfortable, placid and sustainable retreat. The location was chosen because of its assists; first, it is located between farms and green areas, making the air around the land fresh and clean as well as noise-free and pollutionfree. Because of its proximity to Wadi Hanifa, planting will be prosperous. Old Islamic architecture techniques for passing cooling and shading such as fountains, almashrabiya and courtyards, and modern techniques of sustainability such as wind towers, double/triple glazing, wall insulations and double height spaces are applied to ensure sustainability. Reducing the impact of pollutants and reducing high temperatures can be achieved by adding more green areas that consists of native plants. Water recycling treatment systems ensure that water is not wasted within the resort. Sustainable materials obtained from the site are used in the construction of the resort.
