Nesma & Partners has again been tapped to lend a hand in shaping the culturally significant

Al Ula region, an area designated for responsible development that meets the Royal Commission for AlUla’s vision of a world heritage destination exemplifying nature conservation and collaboration with local community.

The precast and perforate skin of the building aids in efficiently cooling and ventilating while blending with the beautiful, red desert landscape of Al Ula.

 

This project, with its aesthetic, environmentally and culturally sensitive design, is shortlisted for the World Architecture Festival Award and complements the Vision 2030 goal to implement the latest technologies and design artistry.

Nesma & Partners’ slogan is “Together, we build excellence,” and with Ashar Electrification Plant project we had the opportunity to realize the vision that the Royal Commission for AlUla has for this wondrous landscape and cultural heritage. It’s an honor for Nesma & Partners to work on this prestigious project that allows us to demonstrate our values of “excellence” and “impact.”
