Pyramid Hills

A residence set in the hills of Cairo.

Sited drastically in the hills looking towards the pyramids at Giza, this house is intended to be both a permanent residence for its occupant, and a guest house for his extended family.

Divided along two axis, the house is functionally arrayed around living and entertain, and sleeping quarters and primary residence. Several courtyards break down the overall massing of the structure, allowing filtered light into rooms and allowing air to circulate through the house.

Local materials are utilized wherever possible, including luminous sandbrick, locally quarried rock, and indigenous plantings.
