-The project is a one block building houses residential and semi-public spaces

- The inner court concept is applied in different way in response to the block formation
-This concept started to gain popularity in Egypt. The main reason is the space saving so you don't need to waste the economically valuable land in landscaping another reason is using the lower two floors as commercial spaces which occupies the whole block area.
The facades vary according to their orientation and situation. The double skin of the south facade optimizes passive solar gain and the overhanging slabs serve the same purpose as awnings, protecting the interior from the sun.
