The Criminal Court

This fascinating cube is “the criminal court” of Riyadh. A very important public institutions located in the very heart of Riyadh’s old town.
The facade features the region’s typical coarse chalky sandstone panels, emphasizing the monumental thrust of the building.
Narrow slits with window elements, that are strongly recessed, minimize the exposure of the rooms to the heat outside.
Illumination of the structure at night makes it look even better. The project was completed in 2014 and was designed by the German architects AS+P.
