Jan Dijkema and Ahmed Yousry attending Cityscape Cairo 21-24 September

Jan Dijkema, director of Chapman Taylor Madrid and Ahmed Yousry, design manager Dubai, are attending Cityscape Cairo this September. The event will be held at the Egypt International Exhibition Centre.

Cityscape Cairo hosts the most influential players in the local and international real estate industry from Egypt and all over the MENA region, focusing on some of the major developments locally and around the country.

Chapman Taylor has completed several projects in Egypt including the masterplan for Gaia North Coast and Park Street Cairo, with more large-scale mixed-use projects in the pipeline.

Park Street Cairo

We have also recently prepared a concept design for the Redevelopment of the Public Administration Building on Tahrir Square as part of a PFI competition bid by Egyptian developer Samcrete.

The 55.000 m2 grand building on the emblematic Tahrir Square will be redeveloped for commercial, office, hotel and residential uses.

Concept for the Tahrir Square building

As the exterior of the building cannot be altered, the emphasis of Chapman Taylor’s concept is on the connection between the large landscaped square in front of the building and the inner courtyards.

Using reference to the Square, the Nile, the desert and wind, new landscape and built elements are introduced to shape this idea.

To get in touch and arrange a meeting in advance of the event, please email Jan at JDijkema@chapmantaylor.com or Ahmed at AYousry@chapmantaylor.com.
