Palace Design - Schematic Design of Site Plan
The design represents a specualtive design proposal for a large residence in Riyadh. I developed the original design for this residence. The design follows a nine square grid layout, with a rotundra occupying the center square. All rooms are concentric to this central nexus.
Saudi residences require absolute spatial distinctions between visiting guests and the occupant family. Privacy is a paramount concern. Thus for this design the living rooms and parlors for receiving visitors are located near the main entry car port illustrated to the left of the main house. The family gardens and pool are located on the opposite end of the property. A second private family and car port entry is located in the south center section of the design. Kitchens and other service functions are located on the north end of the site.
