Hilton Riyadh King Saud University Hotel & Residence

LOCATION: RIYADH, KSA
USE: HOSPITALITY
SCOPE: FAÇADE LIGHTING DESIGN
YEAR: 2013 

University Towers is a new landmark development in Riyadh, owned by King Saud University to serve as an endowment to fund long term development. The project comprises eleven separate buildings and towers, including a 5 star hotel and two hotel suite buildings.

The main approach for these was to enhance their key architectural features, which makes them unique in the context of the development. The podium layers were lit to create a strong visual base, while playing with the rhythm produced by the voids on the upper podium floors. The main masses are detached from each other by hidden cove lights along the perimeter, while the key elements on the elevations are lit to scale the building down to human proportions and provide visual appeal.

 All the above, coupled with the huge illuminated glazing surfaces generate a composition of light and shadows that portrays the buildings' grand gesture.
