Australian Embassy in Cairo at the World Trade Center
The Australian Embassy in Cairo has occupied two floors in the World Trade Center on the Nile Corniche in Cairo.Wassef Design Group was contracted for the fit-out of the premises to include Interior Architectural, Electro-Mechanical Design modifications to comply with the needs of the Embassy Space Program, and Structural Engineering structural integrity services for the slabs at the location of rolling files and storage areas, to study the impact of any change of function of spaces.

The Embassy sought to create a contextually relevant space where facility of communication and ease for visitors is the focal point and sustainability is inherent to the design. By building fewer walls, using structure as finish, maximizing daylight, and thoughtfully choosing materials, the Wassef Interior designers expressed the Embassy’s commitment to environmental preservation.

The Australian Trade showroom’s energy efficient air delivery system, with sophisticated climate controls, optimizes the showroom atmosphere. The furniture products were selected by the Embassy from Class 1 products in Australia.
