Project Profile

The brief for this retail development was to increase the existing commercial element of the Wafi centre with an appropriate Middle Eastern style souk. The innovative solution was to provide a discreet subterranean mall with a landscaped roof incorporating water features.

What came to be were 4 distinctly themed zones, featuring decorative Egyptian, Syrian, Moroccan and Turkish style souks and restaurants. Double height courtyards draw light deep into the plan. Interior details include some ornate stain glass lighting features and hand carved timber balustrades shipped in from Egypt.
