UDesign – Luxury architecture and interior design – Palace in Saudi Arabia

The lure of Marbella, the exclusive enclave on Spain’s Costa del Sol, continues to hold sway. Perhaps being based in the region has given interior design studio UDesign an understanding of creating luxury homes for the international elite who decide to nest here. If architecture and interior design is to be truly defined as an art form, this is it, the stunning new palace in Saudi Arabia.

If architecture and interior design is to be truly defined as an art form, this is it – our stunning new palace in Saudi Arabia. Our goal was to create a large-scale private residence that would have elements of a luxury hotel, an art gallery and a family home. A place that was functional and comfortable at the same time, ideal for family living and for entertaining.

If you thought you’ve seen all this before, don’t worry: you have. Or at least, something like it, because it is based on the traditional Spanish cortijo, that wonderful architectural tradition dating from Moorish times, where all social life centred on the courtyard, and where water formed an essential part of the whole. And if you’ve been to the Alhambra Palace in Granada, this might also give you a déjà-vu moment.

The design is all about light and greenery and natural raw materials. Huge tall spaces still have a family-home feel to them, impressive mosaic columns, different bodies of water and creative lighting, so that all spaces are as beautiful by night as by day. We also designed with a forever mindset. You might change the furniture in years to come, but nothing here will ever go out of fashion.
