Garden City Apartment
Best Implemented Interior Design Project Using Works of Art
About the project
This listed building has existed for over one hundred years, having an antique energy that is very rare in today’s modern living. A unique character of space that adapted French style architecture that speaks of Cairo’s phenomenal history. The refurnishing of this space bridges the gap between the old classical spirit and the modern minimal style by introducing unique pieces of art. Bridging this gap, maintains the unique character of the apartment while giving it a fresh breath of life.
