Occupying a prominent prow site within the King Abdullah Financial District of Riyadh, the Cloud mixed-use building takes a strong position as an urban connector and as a socially and environmentally proactive citizen. Composed of a five-story office block and a fifteen story residential tower linked buy the ‘soft tissue’ of its two-story retail podium, the major masses bracket a semicircular public garden at ground floor and a second floor resident’s garden, both tucked under a great shade canopy that soars overhead.
