We (Hedayat and the team at Eklego Design) took over this house which was a single levelled shell overlooking the Pyramids of Giza and worked closely with the contractor to complete the 15000 square foot house. The house was a celebration of the client's passion for Egyptian art, ornaments and history. We successfully reinterpreted their passion into a contemporary showcase which is practical and functional in every corner.
The clients were keen to take with them many of the furniture pieces and artefacts which will remind them of their first home for the first seventeen years of their lives.
The client also wanted a zone for a formal reception, as her husband is a successful entrepreneur who needs to entertain frequently.
The house was zoned into private and public spaces and within the private spaces we created more zoning to accommodate the various personalities of the household. The one element that united all spaces is the fact that they presented a display for the couples’ extensive art collection.
