Famous Saudi coffee roasters Elixir Bunn opened their new location in Riyadh, designed by Azaz Architects. After building a strong reputation for their coffee, it was time to build an atmosphere to complement their famous drinks. Coffee in Saudi Arabia is well-rooted into the local culture and could be traced back to times prior to the formation of the Kingdom. Since then, coffee in the region has evolved, and today, the coffee industry in Saudi Arabia is flourishing.

New walls blossomed from the column, shaped into massive overreaching arches.
