Schiattarella Associati, in competition with other 5 internationally known architectural firms, prevailed for the planning quality of its proposal.

It is another achievement for the Rome-based firm in the Gulf Area after the Celebration Hall project in Riyadh, the Art Center project in Addirriyah and QUAM project in Qatar.

Therefore the idea has been to realize an artificial hill at the base of the stadium in order to link, from a functional and formal point of view, land level with the Concourse level allocating the bleachers.

By highlighting the typical veils of the covering, representing an important urban landmark of Riyadh, the artificial landscape designed by Schiattarella Associati fulfills the task of introducing another element, perfectly coherent with the context that fits rational simplification in allocating the new spaces.

Underneath the artificial hill there will be almost 1000 parking places, access areas to the West Stand that will be completely modified in order to implement spaces dedicated to spectators (about 12.000 sqm) and fit FIFA requirements.
Between the hill and the Stadium a space, with a green area, will allow natural light to enter deeply inside lighting up the entrances, and act as a filter between the Stadium and parking lots.
