Today I was lucky to be invited for a Barbecue at the beautiful Mit Rehan house which is a neo-traditional house in Cairo, Egypt. The house was built by the famous architect Hassan Fathy and completed in 1981. Mit Rehan is owned by the Kazerouni family and is one of the most stunning houses of the architect Hassan Fathy. The house is in the countryside on the Sakkara Road in Giza.
The beauty and design inside is never ending and I can’t wait to show you more of this house in my upcoming shoots. Starting from the bathrooms to the Hallways every space inside this house is special and beautiful. I was also quite amazed by how cool it is indoors which is how Fathy used to build houses to keep people cool from the outside heat. Fathy’s outstanding concept uses traditional materials and forms.
The Kazerouni house is called “Mit Rehan” meaning “the way of the basil”. The architect had a good ability for dealing with and exhibiting traditional Egyptian vocabularies and items such as mashrabiyyahs for example (wooden lattice work). I have included links underneath to those of you who wish to read further about Mit Rehan.
