TAUSERT Terminal – Train station 
Land plot area: 51 Feddan
Function: Transportation / Leisure / Residential
Post Olympic: A Terminal linking between the old town of Luxor, Esna and the Development Corridor 
Project brief:
The Train station presence was a must as it links between the Development corridor, Esna and the old town of Luxor. Due to its location next to a Hotel and a Medical center, it would cost alt to construct infrastructure that would enable train tracks to go underground with out endangering the other projects foundations so that became our challenge, that’s why It was designed to be constructed as 2 buildings arrivals and departures linked through a bridge which flows over an arterial road in the city so as to compensate the huge cost, with a 5 stars hotel serving city residents, everyday commuters and Olympic city visitors.

Project brief:
 The project’s concept was about the ether of life and how a building could change the beliefs of the Egyptians about the western bank of the River Nile and how it resembles death to them, so it adopted the idea of green and light penetration through most of it’s spaces where the user would exhibit a unique environmental experience during his stay whether it was a business trip or just for vacation.
