Project: Twin Residence
Location: Shaikh Zayed City, Cairo, Egypt
Client: Mr. Hassan Ali
Scope: Design & Construction Documents
Date: Oct 2006 – May 2007
Synopsis: A father purchased a (990 sq m) plot in the Shaikh Zayed City, on the western periphery of Cairo, Egypt.
The client’s request centered around the design of two identical units for his daughter and son. Building regulations in this area prohibits the construction of more than one structure on the same plot. A U-shape building was designed to offer what seems to be a single structure, but in fact, is two free structures attached at only one of their 9 faces, giving each of the two units 4 free facades to overlook the beautiful landscape on which they’re situated.
