Mohammed Maraashly 18
Cairo, Egypt
This triangular three-storey building is a small structure laid out at an angle along two streets. The horizontal line of the facade is inspired by naval design, emphasizing curving forms and features Art Deco Architecture in “Streamline Moderne”. 

The main corner features recessed balconies supported by a central pillar. The building has been designed with ornamental sobriety, horizontal balconies and windows on both sides. Built of mud bricks and covered with plaster, it presents a stylised geometrical pattern in several places. 

Pure lines and simplicity of volumes and forms inherited from British Art Deco define the sober design of this very original building of Zamalek.
