The board of directors of the Sports Boulevard Foundation, chaired by His Royal Highness Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, announced the launch of Design Code for Prince Mohammad bin Salman Road.
The Design Code is driven by the principles of Salmani Architecture, curated by the efforts of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, which is based on both - originality and modernity. It ensures to improve the modern design quality while highlighting the current local architectural identity. The style is featured by its flexibility, vitality, and variety of elements, not mimeographing the old urban vocabulary on new projects, but rather allowing the architect to choose innovative elements, inspired and imitated by the past with new design templates.
The Design Code aims to provide a modern and sustainable environment that enhances the quality of life by improving the architectural design quality, urban planning regulations, building regulations, parking regulations, environmental regulations, as well as land use and shop signs, unifying the urban structures and stimulating investment and real state elements as per standards.
The aim of the Design Code is to provide regulation standards for engineering design and is a reference guide for all the current and potential commercial and residential property owners, developers, and investors, contributing to a design pattern that will harmonize the paths of Sports Boulevard for pedestrians, cyclists, and horse riders, forming a modern and sustainable environment for Riyadh residents and visitors.
