Edge Innovation Center is a commercial work complex with over 1800 square meters. Located in Giza’s Galleria40, a brand-new retail and business complex, Edge is a new aspirational and status business destination in Egypt.

The client, Raya Lease Egypt, wanted to create a unique, high-end workplace environment, conceived to be Cairo's premier business and conferences facility. Edge provides a flexible, modern and premium workspace to entrepreneurs, individuals, start-ups, fast-growing businesses, large companies and agencies.

The work complex features a reception area, a large conference hall, diverse meeting rooms, seven flexible training rooms, a boardroom, modern offices in different sizes and co-working areas as well as state-of-the-art business services such as a cafeteria, lounge areas and a shop.

The design idea consists of three large central volumes placed in the center of the space, allowing for an open space all around. These elements, with their curved and sculptural shapes, allocate the functions that need a larger area, and hide the building vertical nuclei and the auxiliary spaces. The closed offices are placed along the facades and use glass partitions to give them a lighter look and let the light flow in. The project merges a rational organization with a free flow open space that seems to be floating along the floorplan.

Material Palette

The material palette reinforces the spatial concept, using ivory white paint and natural tinted elm wood. The polished Capri natural limestone fits in with its warm shade, while multiplying the natural ambient light and amplifying the height of the floor.

All spaces are finished with sleek furnishings and developed with the latest in work technologies including innovative IT solutions.
