The MODON Serviced Apartment Building is a prototype project for a facility to be repeated in multiple cities under development by the leading Saudi Industrial Property Authority.
The building consists of 3 clearly distinct elements.
The entrance building, or Building C is a cylindrical volume that is also the center of the composition and the pivot point to which the two other linear elements are attached.
7 types of apartment units, differing in typology and size are accommodated in Wing A (5-storey) and Wing B (4-storey), with public spaces and facilities occupying the Ground Floor of Wing B.
Adjustability in different orientations related to sustainability considerations and shading needs has been a critical factor for the design of the building’s envelope. Morphology and volumetric development of each facade corresponds to sun-shading requirements based on simulations performed using dedicated energy analysis software. The overall sustainable and energy conscious approach of the design has been awarded with a Gold LEED Certification.
