We’ve rounded up some of the most stunning home exteriors that’ll have you wanting to move in—and may even inspire you to up your own home’s curb appeal.

Olaya Hotel Exterior Design – Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia

The existing Olaya Hotel exterior design enjoys a landmark status, which means that its design has to be eye-catching but elegant at the same time. Its four-sided visibility called for something that had to be unique and avant-garde, but at the same time, had to match with the understated elegance that defined the interior design palate of the hotel. Furthermore, Mazen Aizouki – the client – wanted a building that would offer a harmonious internal-external connection to the desired demographic of guests.
So the CAS design team responded by designing a hybrid modern-traditional scheme that would complement the overall context of the KSA’s visual palate while maintaining a contemporary aesthetic unique to its own. In this way, the Olaya Hotel exterior design ended up with tall windows, black and white material composition and a belt of mosaic shapes that straddle the building – an ode to the Islamic style of
