FORTY WEST SHOWHOUSE | COMMERCIAL Eklego Design BRIEF Hedayat led her team at Eklego Design in working on the Interior architecture and design of 180 apartments in a high-end luxury development in the west (capital) of Cairo. PROJECT SCOPE: Developed interior layouts with architectural firm Machado and Silvetti. Developed three distinct styles which were applied in the details, finishes and furnishings. Natural Zen, Modern Islamic and Urban Chic.
Modern Islamic was geared towards the more eclectic, well travelled family. Intricate Islamic patterns were scaled into a larger format and applied to laser cut patterns in marble on the fireplace, in the bathroom finishes and on feature walls. The woodwork of the closets and privacy screen were also crafted into the same pattern to create harmony with the space. Light greige polished marble floors were utilised in the reception and hallways while whitewashed wooden floors were specified for the bedrooms rendering the apartment a cool expansive feel.
