Akwaan Retail Center
Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
Located in the Qurtoba district of Riyadh, the Akwaan Mall complements one of the area's largest residential projects. The masterplan envisages the mall linking to the surrounding neighbourhoods via appealing pedestrian walkways and vehicular roads.
The mall's architecture features an enigmatic blend of classic styles and contemporary techniques. Traditional external finishes and elevation treatments work together with modern massing and opening shapes – thus creating a visually engaging hub that the entire community can enjoy.
Since Akwaan Mall is the district's primary retail and convenience destination, the internal design and layout is carefully considered – aimed at providing the community with a variety of essential services and amenities. Internal corridors and pathways have been skilfully conceived to ensure smooth circulation between the mall's various outlets and areas – thus ensuring an enjoyable visitor experience.
The mall's focal point is the large supermarket that covers more than 3,500 sqm. Adjacent to this flagship store is a principal anchor outlet that occupies nearly 1,000 sqm. There is also a welcoming food court that features four restaurants and attractive outdoor seating areas.
