    • Despite its age, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Riyadh is a modern office building in an international class of its own. Within its protective walls, the building opens up as a labyrinth of intimate and monumental working and reception rooms, narrower corridors and fertile courtyard gardens. The building's qualities are found in the balance between the rooms' mutual hierarchy and size, in relation to the human scale, and in this respect the use of indirect daylight has a very special role to play. Our team in Saudi Arabia recently led the extensive restoration and upgrading of this historical building, among other things by integrating an extra floor in the building's roof.
