"Designed for Mustapha Bey al-Kachkacin to expand his newspaper operation, this six-storey office building was to be the home of his Abu al-Hol and al-Sabah Journal, on al-Dakhliya Street in Cairo. Similar in style to the Omar and al-Bariya villas, with flat roof and industrial windows, it uses the grid and curtain-wall system then being put forward as part of the five points of architecture in Europe."
