In the heart of Cairo lies the interior architecture renovation project for Trend Micro; a global leader in internet security software to be used as a head office and training hub. The project is located at the American University in Cairo's (AUC) Greek Campus once part of the university before relocating now being used as a technology and innovation park.


A place that connects you to the past through the Islamic and Pharaonic vibes of the design as well as play with the corporate identity. Since Trend Micro is an IT security company the design plan has encompassed high tech smart solutions. The finished design of Trend Micro combines high tech elements with minimal finishes in raw industrial environment. The location was the main driver for the design plan where Dalia has always had an affinity towards the Islamic Mafrouka choosing it to be the core element of the entire theme. Looking at the project from an eye bird view, you would see how she played around with the islamic pattern. Aside from reviving the Arabic feel, the use of broken lines across the design tricks the eye that the space is bigger and makes you lose the feel of the boundaries. Encapsulating the broken lines all across the design evokes the feel of connection to the space elements as you move along.  


Apart from incorporating the busy islamic pattern on the inside, the clear islamic inspiration was obvious in the cast decorative iron on the front of the building. Moreover Dalia was keen on reflecting the pharaonic culture in the design through the use of titled doors like in the temples and playing around with lighting which added sophistication to the place resulting in a more energetic creative layout.
