Global architecture and interior design practice Scott Brownrigg has announced that it has completed the fit-out work at the new 5,460-sq-m headquarters of Saudi community developer Roshn Real Estate in the capital Riyadh.
Announcing the fit-out work completion, Scott Brownrigg said the brief was for an innovative, people-centric working environment that reflects the identity, social values, and location of the fast growing and leading community developer and also to create a space where employees feel empowered to strive for success, and have the opportunity to create, collaborate, and develop. 
Quickly, the British interior design firm’s Design Strategy Unit (DSU) swung into action, conducting a series of staff engagement sessions - from departmental interviews and workshops to a bespoke workstyle profiler in order to gain an in-depth understanding of individual and collective requirements for the new workspace.
Scott Brownrigg said the overall design concept offers a contemporary take on traditional Saudi design and craftsmanship. 
A considered internal layout with a range of work settings distributed across multiple floors provides employees with choice, flexibility and ownership in how and where they work; a space that embodies the values of Roshn, it stated.
Scott Brownrigg's Director Beatriz Gonzalez said: "We worked closely with Roshn’s team to integrate their new company culture and brand identity into the design. Visually inspired by the local context, the space plan promotes innovation and co-creation."
"Traditional vernacular materials such as limestone, stone and wood, create a harmonised working
environment. Terracotta colours define the central core while wood provides texture and pattern
definition throughout," noted Gonzalez.
"A new multi-purpose reception includes spaces for informal meetings and collaboration; an innovation area to display current projects and host new project launches and functions. On floors above, individual pods and enclosed booths allow for undisturbed focus while open-plan deskwork spaces encourage informal exchange, and maximise natural light and views," he explained.
"A café located at the top of the building is a flexible sub-divisible social space, used by staff for presentations, wellness events, or simply to pause and take in the impressive views over the city," said Gonzalez.
Creating a high-quality space for partners and clients to positively engage and interact, the new Roshn
headquarters demonstrates a commitment to the people they work with, and to future communities
across the kingdom. 
Scott Brownrigg said the innovative design of the HQ interiors supports Roshn’s commitment to the Saudi people - of that of boosting the home ownership across the kingdom and thus enhancing the economic growth.
In 2021, Roshn was named one of Saudi’s top 10 employers and even clinched the ‘Best Places to Work’ award. It was recognised as a national leader in employee engagement.-TradeArabia News Service
