Al Messila Complex is an apartment hotel of 60 residential units off atrium circulation, an open-air courtyard on the ground floor is a kids' open play area and garden.
The building is envisaged as a solid and powerful form using only bricks to create a deep facade. There is a strong architectural order to the building’s outward expression, a simple rhythm over the principal facades.
The brick creates safe and enclosing external spaces, places that might retain some warmth and protection to be used throughout the year.
The brick is used internally in the apartments units giving the feeling of solidity, cool, clean, and minimalist. But simplicity is accompanied by a few ultra-modern details, like the glossy floors and artful lighting. The white floors, walls, and ceilings almost have a two-dimensional effect.
