Courtyard restyling in Riyadh

The restyling of the courtyard of a private residence in Riyadh creates an elegant and refreshing garden to welcome the family. A new floating wooden deck, installed over existing paving, adds personality and hides the new irrigation system. Lounge and strolling areas are separated by tailored planters and slight changes of level. In Saudi Arabia daytime temperatures may exceed 50°C, therefore open spaces have to be created thinking of nightfall: here, scented flowers and ornamental shrubs are enhanced by accurate lighting. Along the boundaries, lush climbing vegetation and tall shrubs ensure privacy, while wooden screens frame entrances and passages to make you feel inside a Hortus conclusus.
