Dar al-Latteef Residence (2012 – work in progress)

Dar al-Latteef is a one-off family residence in New Cairo, Egypt. Located next to the Police Academy, the height in this particular area is absolutely restricted and so the load-bearing walls system presented itself as an  economically feasible alternative to the more commonly used concrete structures. Dar al-Latteef (DLR) is also  an attempt to create a space subservient to God’s name al-Latteef or the Most Subtle.
