Damac Sales Centre
Location: Garden Heights, Cairo, Egypt
Client: Urban Art Projects
bureau^proberts and Urban Art Projects collaborated to provide a design concept that responds to the brief and context of the project. The sales centre is a place for people, a human experience, and yet a dramatic adventurous form which challenges convention. This form however provides a sustainable experience by creating a shaded space below, open and ventilated. Additionally the use of mass in the materials cools the spaces. Through process an expressive form has emerged that encapsulates ideas and concepts that underpin the project and create a narrative and sense of purpose to the design that will be memorable and inspiring. The design will be an enduring form marking a centre point for a bold development, an oasis in the ancient deserts of Egypt.
