Client: Konak Developments
Size: 3.500 m2
Location: El Mahala, Egypt
The Reeja Residences project is located in the city of Mahala, a secondary city in Egypt that has evolved from agriculture to textile industry during the XX century.
The site of the project is already known in the city as the “Flat Iron” of Mahala becasue of its triangular geometry.
The project mix use program includes commercial and retail spaces on the lower levels, 10 residential floors and community spaces on the roof.
The preexistences of the city and the historical architecture of Egypt were the starting point of the design process. From this analysis several ideas and solutions to problems have been included in the project.
