The project design blends Islamic and Minimalism architecture. The idea came to me one day when I stumbled on a magnificent small mosque door on the out skirts of Cairo with engravings of the Islamic Mafrouka, a geometrical figure drawn from the intertwining of squares. When I sketched it and broke it down to its abstract form it hit me that it would work magnificently for this project since despite its Islamic originality it had the straight unsophisticated composition of Minimalism. The project was 2012 A' Design Award winner in architecture category.
