Scope: Interior Design
Location: Zamalek, Cairo, Egypt

The client’s main request was to create an elegant and modern home in which to entertain family and friends, while highlighting the stunning views overlooking one of the largest green spaces in central Cairo, the Gezira Club Park on the island of Zamalek. The design intention was to create a light, spacious, nostalgic interior. We abandoned the idea of zoning by creating an open plan space that brings in light inside all the rooms even in the farthest spaces. In darker spaces indirect light was used to give the illusion of having light in the space. Vintage wood wall paneling runs through the house giving a nostalgic design element to the space. An open plan kitchen designed with white subway like tiles and an aqua black splash gives a fresh and modern feel to the apartment. Even though the apartment is quite detailed, everything is within a very monochromatic scale. By making the apartment feel like a neutral background we were able to make the view pop out.
