The Al Rajhi Cultural centre is located in Hail, KSA forming part of a large development, including the renowned Al Rajhi Grand Mosque, a local landmark in Hail as well as a residential complex and commercial Mall.
The Center offers various office spaces and a large scale dividable multi-purpose hall being capable to host three major events at the same time without interference. The Ground Floor is reserved for the various offices and retail component as well as housing for the Imam and Muezzin and their families serving the adjacent Mosque.
The Educational Centre includes two primary qur’anic schools for girls and boys.
All components of the Cultural Centre development are linked through shaded walkways and connected by a variety of plazas and landscaped garden areas, undermined through the pleasant climate in Hail allowing for outdoor activities year-round.
Whilst the Al Rajhi Grand Mosque is inspired by accents of Turkish architecture, we drew on Hijazi elements for the Cultural Center and interpreted them in a contemporary manor.
