Our work

Shaping transcendent realities.

Our work is a search to figure out what aspects of our discipline can touch the human soul and spirit. To us, architecture is something more ineffable, metaphysical, and transcendent.

Our goal is to build beautiful, desirable, and intelligent architecture primarily targeting cities. We really believe that our buildings have the inherent possibility to change the way people think about their cities and architecture.

Our DNA

How we think, design and cooperate.

One

Our exceptional team works collaboratively in unity towards common goals and values, driven by ideas, research and innovation.

Diverse

One of our core strengths is that we have never required anyone to fit into a mold. We believe that our strength comes from the breadth of perspectives people bring together. Our wide-ranging expertise reflects on our diverse portfolio. We design buildings that best fit the needs of clients and users, whether they be public buildings, schools, hotels, or more.

Curious

At Elgabaly Architects, our process is fueled by creativity, collaboration and questions. We find the best design solutions by asking What If?

Human

Our holistic design approach revolves around the human being, physically and metaphysically. Each of our projects, no matter the scale, is designed by people for the people – to stimulate, enlighten and inspire the human being. Thus, our culture always encourages to put humans first in all circumstances.

Impact

We recognize that we are the custodians of our environment, thus we realize our work is as much about leaving the world a better place as it is about doing great design. We take pride in knowing that thoughtful design decisions have impact on both our clients and community in a positive way.
