Microsoft Corporation New Office Building

Project Description

Like many of its global peers, the international information technology firm Microsoft Corporation was keen to plant a strong foothold in the ambitious Smart Village Cairo venture. It opted for a uniquely designed office building with a construction cost of US$ 4,100,000, comprising four floors of office space and two basements reserved for parking. With a gross floor space of 8,000 m2 , ECG successfully delivered fully flexible, custom-tailored designs to effectively meet specific tenant long-term lease requirements.

Artificial stone plaster and high tech glazing are used in the facade which creates a unique and exciting contrast of materials. Fixed sunscreens and sunshades are used in elevations and above the roof.

A careful study of the sun paths & building orientation during the design developed large aluminum wings suspended in front of the eastern and western elevations, with a certain angle attached to a space truss (designed with photovoltaic panels) above the roof of the building.
