City palace in Riyadh to be designed by Belgian duo Danny De Munter and Wim Gyselinck

Two Belgian architects have been selected to design a palace in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Danny de Munter and Wim Gyselinck have been requested to open a local engineering office as a partnership following their selection for the major architectural project. They currently operate from DMG Architectural Solutions in Antwerp, with De Munter having previously completed a successful palace project with Patrick van der Stricht in Khobar.

De Munter explains: “The underdog profile of our Belgian team cannot be underestimated: we work in a small team which results in a lower cost than our competitors; we work faster than them and think in a more pragmatic way. There are very few global players in this market that can work as versatile as we do and are specialised in as many fields as we are.”
