Manial Shiha Hotel
CHARACTER DESIGN ARCHITECTS introduced a proposal for the façade design of this 5 stars’ hotel located in Manial Shiha in Cairo. With its unique location overlooking the river Nile, our target was to develop a facade that is guided and influenced by the spectacular nature of site and view.
Being ideally located in the heart of Cairo, our concept was to create a bold and dynamic effect that cope with the lively nature of the place and add a unique identity to the hotel building. The slight yet intricate shift in the structural slab of each floor gave the building a 3-dimensional dynamic effect. During the night, the deftly incorporated indirect diffused lighting are turned on to give the building this vibrant look.
