The Hilton Riyadh designed by Goettsch Partners is located in Saudi Arabia. The hotel tower has multiple two-level atriums that rotate around the elevator core, creating internal light wells and providing movement in the overall massing. Guest corridors terminate in glass facades as well, providing additional views and connections outdoors. Along with the atriums, the hotel façade is expressed with undulating reveals along the glass faces with solid, tapered end walls to frame the mass.
The apartment tower has linear slots along the intersecting three wings running the height of the tower to bring light into the core. Here, the glass façade has a weave of undulating forms that, again, bring movement to the mass and are framed by solid, tapering end walls. The roof of the multipurpose hall comprises a mixture of garden areas and terraces that connect the building to the surrounding landscape, as well as relate to the area’s overall master plan.
