Design & Planning

The designers inspired by the nature of the place in a very simple folkloric architecture style. Sun, air, water, the valley and the rocks, were the main design elements that forming the space with scales that identify the area culture, and it was obviously clear conclusions to think naturally… in architecture it seems like you researching the natural changes of the location over time that drew the surrounding scene. Every elements of a project of location, environment and surrounding atmosphere, always they are defining the nature of the design, and this is the what we’re focusing on; to develop a smart spaces and connections that inspiring the people how to be part of the environment, however human is the main element among all, 

It was clear that we need to solve the challenges first then adding values, the reason we designed the marina on one end of the corniche, doesn’t prevent visitors of enjoying the view, and to keep along the coast line clean, on the other hand the marina line added value to the view, from the ground and the landscape had been more visible to every boat or floating hotel on the marina… Luxor corniche is a walkway down that gives you a full view of the Nile and the city, with different activities that enriching lifestyle, surrounded with open-air greenery spaces
