Cairo, Egypt 2013
Design - Project Management – Turn-key
The EB Houseboat was a recently renovated floating steel structure on the banks of the Nile river in central Cairo. With the hustle and bustle of the surrounding context, the client wished to create a getaway haven in the middle of the city. The design provided a relaxing space that played on hints of Pharonic and Islamic details. Utilizing wooden shading devices and internal and external curtains, the design achieved a sense of openness and broad view of the river while maintaining privacy within. This was a turn-key project covering design, execution, furniture and finishing selection and procurement.
