The design challenge was to design the Egyptian embassy in Kuwait and the ambassador’s House in the same plot. The two main components were placed on opposite sides of the site boundaries with a gap between them to distinguish the two components from each other from a function perspective. An axis between the two components was drawn and several ceremonial lobbies were placed along the axis from the house to the main entrance of the embassy in the north. The lobbies had different sizes and were open to the sky inspired by the traditional architecture in both Kuwait and Egypt, they were covered by metal frame Shukhshikha (stack-driven roof opening) To emphasize the fact that both masses belong to the same entity one facade wall unified them. The wall took the same direction as the ceremonial axis. Both are directed to the northwest to optimize the air circulation in the building and the lobbies.
