The concept of ​​the project is to find a building in Tokyo that reflects Najdi style in a modern approach. This idea is achieved through the compositions of masses and the use of Najdi elements and articulations such as conventional Najdi arches and triangular openings.

The horizontal lines in the facades express mud decorations that are previously used to enrich Najdi architecture.
