The villa is located in Al-Agamy area in Alexandria. It was natural for the designer to focus on the interior because the villa does not have a view of the sea, which calls for more attention on the landscaping. All rooms on the ground floor have views and access of the yard. The designer is concerned with creating harmony of materials and colors and uses natural materials such as wood and clay along with green elements and water to enhance the feeling of comfort and homeliness.
