Interview with EA-DesignHouse and Owner
- What made you choose to become an Interior Designer? and how long have you been working in this field?
EA-DesignHouse was established in 2010 as an Architectural and Interior design studio that delivers a complete design service, starting with Architecture and ending with interiors. Architecture fulfills function and Interior verifies completion.
“Interior Design is not a choice – it’s a must!”
- When was your first project as an Interior Designer and what was it for?
First Interior Design project was as a freelancer in 2008, it was a display booth in one of Egypt’s’ top furniture exhibitions “La Casa”, followed by others in Interbuild and lasted for 3 consecutive years. Scope was design and construction.
- How would you prioritise your tasks for a project?
Quality design is our first and last priority, it’s the planning phase for every project, the more time you give to study, the better quality you receive.
If we talk tasks here are the design stages every project goes through:
Mood board and plan design proposal.
- Do you get involved in the lighting of the design?
Architects are the maestros of the orchestra! We think of Structure, Lighting, Sanitary, Air-conditioning, landscape… pretty much everything to make the whole symphony exquisite.
- What level of involvement do you have in the project you do?
EA-DesignHouse has its own DESIGN LANGUAGE that we continuously develop, to further reinforce our identity and that is the level of my involvement as CEO in terms of design. “Strategy, identity and design language development”, that came to the light with the excellent design manager Architect/ Hunia Tomoum, who has diverse experiences in Architectural Studios, Consultancy Companies and Educational realm; tutoring in the AUC and Arab Academy for Science and Technology (AAST). She also participated in several local and international competitions and workshops, with a published project in EVOLO book year 2011, USA, also receiving her Bachelor degree from AAST, accredited by The Royal Institute of British Architects and a master degree in Advanced Architecture from IAAC, Barcelona, Spain.
- What makes your style unique?
We give a meticulous attention to details. We seek to understand the needs and interests of our clients, providing an exceptionally personalised design with creative and optimised use of space.
- What was the best project you had done and loved the most?
Allow me to quote the Oscar winner ‘Mathew McConaughey’, when he said that he needs 3 things every day; “Something to look up to, something to look forward to and someone to chase” and the part that captivated me was ‘that someone to chase’; it was him in 10 years!
In our case with every project we learn more and we look forward to that growth in our experience is 10 years time. To answer your question about our best projects or the closest to our hearts are the ones you will be seeing in 10 years from now.
- What piece of your portfolio are you most proud of?
HG Studio: We were asked to design a living studio, by extending the existing indoors area on the roof, using light structure. The idea was to design a space that is open to the outside, allowing only passage of indirect light. This was done using continuous horizontal fixed windows on the south, east, and western elevation, while creating full sized openings on the northern elevation opening to the outside and looking onto a roof garden.
The interior spaces are divided into two spaces; first division is the Sleeping and seating area.
The second one, is the dressing and bathroom area.
- Describe your work in 5 words.
Personalised, Functional, Quality, Luxurious. Details.
