Cairo, Egypt 2013
Procurement – Project Management
The KR Residence is a property perched on the mountainside of the Moqattam hills with a sweeping view of Cairo from the backyard. The clients’ desired to keep the property modern and neat. The design was developed to house the required functions of a lap pool and an entertainment area under a convertible pergola. The pool was placed in the north-east corner of the property to create a cooling effect utilizing the dominant winds from that direction. A pergola over the barbeque bar and a second over the breakfast corner just outside the kitchen were designed with a series of parallel vertical strips of wood to protect the privacy of the property. This was a design and build, turn-key project.
