Prince Saud Al-Faisal Institute of Diplomatic Studies

This eye-catching limestone facade is a governmental building in Riyadh.

The rhomboid windows and opening featured in the facade not only serve as a unique feature but also improve the thermal efficiency of the structure, allowing sun light to get through the building also ensuring adequate shade.

Even the orientation of the building was effectively chosen to maximize natural lighting and to balance heat gain and loss.

It Is absolutely a stunning addition to government buildings in Riyadh.
