Project Description

The Arriyadh Development Authority (ADA) invited Gerber Architekten International to enter a design competition for the Olaya Metro Station in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

The station will occupy an area of 11,000sqm and will incorporate station facilities along with retail and food & beverage units. The station is characterised by its open atrium, connecting the station facilities with concourse areas and the green roof, which acts as public space.

DFC provided fire engineering guidance, which assisted Gerber Architekten in winning design competition and ensure that the key characteristic features of the station could be included, whilst maintaining an adequate life safety performance.
