A 62-storey tower in central Riyadh, the Burj Rafal was designed by architecture firm P&T.



The building will include the first Kempinski Hotel in Saudi Arabia, as well as 6,000 square metres of residential space.

The 19,315 square metre site is located on King Fahd Road near the rapidly developing King Abdullah Financial Centre.



Stephan Frantzen, executive director of P&T, said that the intention was always for the Burj Rafal to be the tallest tower in Riyadh, but that the firm also wanted to design something that was distinctly Saudi Arabian. Frantzen was able to do so with the podium, which uses local stone and traditional triangular patterns.

P&T inherited the initial Burj Rafal design from another firm, who had intended to include elaborate louvers on the exterior, but they were quick to scrap this design feature.



Recently the developer, Rafal, announced that the building will no longer include an office component, and the 13 storeys set aside for offices will be converted into residential.

The project will join the Al Faisaliah Tower and the Kingdom Tower as the three tallest buildings on the Riyadh skyline

nice tower, but these spires add nothing to the design, only height.
