068DAR ARAFA Residence (2005 – 2006)

DAR ARAFA is a multi-unit family residence constructed within a (20 m x 30 m) plot in New Cairo, Egypt. The owner, a university professor, with his wife and 6 children, has spent nearly half his life in different countries, yet remains proudly in touch with his Upper-Egyptian identity. A yearning for greenery, high regard for extended family values requiring an essential balance of spacious hospitality and sacred privacy drive the design of Dar Arafa, which has proudly been shortlisted for a Hassan Fathy Award 2009, and nominated for an Aga Khan Award For Architecture 2010 (11th cycle).
