“House on the outskirts of Cairo”

House on the Outskirts of Cairo

A private residence on the outskirts of Cairo on the midst of vast palm trees groves .The client requested an extension for his existing house with the aim of adding more living space that can accommodate the everyday activities – eating, reading, working and entertaining more people, while enjoying the surrounding palm tree groves and gardens, extending the house to nature and being part of it.

The aim was to design a space in harmony with the natural setting so it blends in the context. Extending the new living space into the garden was built on a study of the morphology and organization of the old house, which gave us a location in where the addition should be. Connecting terraces to the living spaces to take the advantage of the surrounding garden views was offered.

The new addition offers a place that a dynamic, comfortable, and functional to their everyday activities, where the whole family can gather and interact with each other. From here the concept of the space has taken shape , there was no separate rooms as traditionally known- the dining room, the living room or the study room but rather an open space articulated into smaller spaces connected and related, providing an enclosure for each activity within a larger whole.
