In such a place like the location of Katameya tourism college, which is situation in the Fifth Settlement (a luxurious suburban of Cairo city) and facing the grand residential recreational compound of Katameya Golf heights, it was very important to consider the surrounding constrains of location and contouring of the site.
Aiming to get advantage of the good view across the road, the form of the project has taken the u-shape form with a grand plaza in the heart, the form of the building itself was designed in grades following the contour of the site enabling the maximum view angle for each floor.
Style of design was modern with some oriental inspirations, and the designer tried to create a welcoming entrance plaza with shaded arcade, sitting areas and warm color schemes to encourage gathering activities.
The college building was supported with two main lecture halls behind the arcade directly accessed from main plaza, grand library, a small hotel with it›s own kitchen, laboratories and computer labs and several courtyards raised backsides by steps and green hills.
