Redevelopment of contemporary architectural facades
Jadawi Tower is located in Makkah Al-Masfalah district at the intersection of Ibrahim Al-Khalil Road with a panoramic view of the Holy Mosque in Makkah, making its geographical location a unique opportunity for spiritual communication between architecture and the Muslim person. The corner of the Grand Mosque and the Kaaba, and around which many Muslims flock to perform Hajj and Umrah.
data

Hijazi architecture has been characterized since ancient times by many important data such as reconfiguring the culture of Rawashin in a new and modern way and making this formation a sign of Hijazi linked to the Hijazi architectural culture. Yet, as if it was a model emanating from the Hijazi architecture, but the origin of the atom came from around the world, and historical sources indicated that the origin of the Roshan is Indian, and also found uses for it in Iran as well as the islands of Malta, and it has spread widely among some sites in South America.

When this architectural style spread, society began to look at it as a local style that describes the Meccan identity, regardless of our ideas and vision in the use of this element, we believe that these elements must be used within specific heights to ensure the optimal use of air and climatic interaction as well as the dye Architecturally, the use of the roshan and the mashrabiya at the height of Cali, as is the case in some projects, and its projection on the architectural identity is a fatal mistake.

Architecturally, it is as if you bring the front of a racing car onto a truck to transport goods. The architectural view that the owner may require in order to extinguish a certain character may fail if it is not used properly.
study and analysis
In short, Saudi architects believe that 95% of the architectural projects that were established in Makkah Al-Mukarramah were built according to the solutions subject to licensing, and the buildings were built according to the solutions of horizontal planes only (according to an architectural study that we conducted for hotel buildings in Makkah), and perhaps the same current project is close From this idea, but what we will do is the treatment and architectural modeling of the facades in a modern architectural style, and an inspiration from the fragrance of the past.

Natural lighting and vision
The idea of ​​adding rawash and mashrabiyas at a high altitude is contrary to the original and a mistake that some owners may have made in the past. Currently, the most important thing the hotel visitor thinks about is to provide the best means of visual communication without physical obstruction, add to the fact that natural lighting is an essential architectural element to provide an environment And a good quality of life for the resident of the hotel.
Nature designs

In an organic architectural practice, we’re not designing a historic building here. The purpose of this building is commercial design. The architecture has to meet commercial as well as natural requirements. What we’re doing is we let architecture design that building through nature and natural modeling to let the sun decide. The fate of the openings and rooms, and let the reflection determine the best use. This is modern architecture that begins with an idea and is linked to robotics and modeling, but within the scope of historical architectural elements.
