Pyramid Heights Masterplan in Cairo, Egypt by Klingmann Architects + Brand Consultants

 
April 25th, 2012 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Klingmann Architects + Brand Consultants

KABC developed a holistic 21st century community in Cairo, in close proximity to one of the most ancient wonders of the world, the Pyramids of Giza. It is a community inspired by the land of Egypt, where quality of life is maximized within a serene natural environment. This project combines the convenience of cultivated living, sophisticated boutique retail, innovative class A office spaces, and enjoyable entertainment with a spectacular connective pedestrian network of undulating foot trails, lively squares, and peaceful waterscapes. A sequence of communities, in the form of small oases offer visual difference and active engagement. The differently styled communities offer contrasting experiences—both in program and in appearance. This means that each resident can select a different atmosphere, conducive to his or her lifestyle. The result is an economically viable development that creates a sense of comfort, peace, and enjoyment for the global citizen of tomorrow.
