CAS was commissioned to design the family activity center -Inner G, the first of its kind in the transforming city of Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Hosting a myriad of activities for all ages to explore and enjoy, it is designed to become a world-class family activity destination. Inspired by the oasis, the family activity center provides a space for the visitors to replenish their energies, with the activities taking place in the center surrounded with an indoor landscape, creating a natural enclosed environment.

Family Activity Center 1-Reception with a white minimal desk welcomes the incoming visitors in the family activity center, featuring a tree shaped canopy with Voronoi pattern that permit indirect light and add to the distinctive building form, by Comelite Architecture, Structure and Interior Design.

The proposed design explores the value of the cultural and natural inheritance as an opportunity to address climate issues in the facility. In an arid and hot climate like Riyadh, comfort and sustainable use of resources are essential. CAS addressed this by creating a solar-powered, tree-shaped canopy and designing an inner garden of local flora as well as foreign ones to reduce the ambient temperature, and using recycled water for irrigation to minimize water consumption.

The family activity center -Inner G- consists of three main elements:  solar canopy, inner garden and artificial geography. The solar canopy is the most distinctive element, making for an iconic landmark in the capital city. Indirect daylight access through the voronoi patterned roof, and columns with planted trees at their core further disperse the direct sunlight, increasing indoor comfort and providing shade from the harsh desert sun.

The family activity center offers a variety of thrilling activities for adventure-seeking visitors within a safe environment, from trampolines to rock climbing, roller gliding to cave exploration. To ensure the natural feel, molds would be taken from real rocks to shape the panels covering the climbing area and cave walls, along with a 6m high waterfall and small pond around the rocky area.
