Urban Design is about establishing connections betweenÂ people and places, movement and urban form, nature andÂ the built fabric. It brings together the many aspects ofÂ place-making, sustainability and economic viability into theÂ creation of places with distinct beauty and clear identity. Urban Design is about creating a vision for an area, thenÂ using suitable architecture and landscape design to bringÂ the vision to life. It is about shaping the physical setting ofÂ life in different communities and involves the design ofÂ groups of buildings and spaces, thus establishing theÂ processes that make successful development possible. Throughout 30+ years of expertise, UDCÂ key members have gained a strong reputation in urban design, developingÂ a large number of projects over different design levels, which range from the master planning of a whole urbanÂ community to the creation of a single space. The projects vary in locations, areas, typologies, design themes and lifeÂ styles; covering a number of resorts inside and outside Egypt, residential compounds, sports clubs, commercialÂ centers, and office parks to mention only a few. At UDC, we provide clients with masterplanÂ solutions that match their aspirations and can be realizedÂ in todayÂ´s demanding economic environment. Using ourÂ multi-skilled resources, we achieve design visions thatÂ are underpinned by ease of movement, legibility of space,Â clear city branding, safety, sustainability and access to high-quality public spaces. Our philosophy seeks to create places that bring aboutÂ a higher quality of life and economic vitality- above allÂ attracting people to use and enjoy new environments.
Architecture is the art and science of building; addressingÂ both viability and cost for the builder, as well as aestheticsÂ and function for the user. It is about the creativeÂ manipulation and coordination of materials, forms andÂ technology, with the aim of providing the spatial and shelterÂ needs of people, thus deeply affecting their well-being, security and quality of living. Over the years, UDCmembers have designed andÂ realized a large number of buildings, covering a wide rangeÂ of typologies, such as single-family houses, apartmentÂ buildings, malls, offices, hotels, clubhouses, sports andÂ educational buildings. UDCÂ´s architecture mirrors clarity, as an expression of aesthetic beauty, as well as functionality and sustainability.Â By the creative organization of materials and components of mass, space, form, volume, texture, colour, light and shadow,Â we are continuously in search of the simplest way to design a structure, always keeping in mind the goal of achieving theÂ highest functionality with the most basic elements and the most economic means.
Interior design is the art of creating indoor spaces. It is aÂ multi-Faceted profession, in which aesthetic and technicalÂ skills are applied within a building- based on anÂ understanding of architectural elements- to conceive anÂ interior environment that fulfills the clientâ€™s needs andÂ aspirations. Over the years, we have developed a number of interiorÂ design projects, including residential, hotel and officeÂ spaces, seeking appropriate solutions and applying themÂ in a sensitive manner that promotes the welfare of ourÂ clients and improves the psychological and physical qualityÂ of their lives.
Landscaping is the design of outdoor, public and privateÂ spaces that are both visually striking and functional,Â achieving environmental, behavioral and aestheticÂ outcomes. The success of a design relies heavily on theÂ systematic examination and understanding of the existingÂ social, ecological, and geological conditions of the site.Â Landscaping is one of our core fields of work; it is about understanding the client’s objectives, and then applying our expertise to develop visionary and high quality design solutions.Â With our extensive experience over the past 30 years, we haveÂ produced a multitude of successful designs for small-scaleÂ and large-scale projects, ranging from the garden design.Â of single-family houses, to the landscape planning of new urban communities, resorts and business parks. Thanks to the use of cutting-edge technologies, every project is conceived, planned and viewed in advance, allowingÂ no room for chance. We believe that each landscape design should enhance the overall architecture of the place, shouldÂ provide a stimulating and aesthetically-pleasant environment, should respond elegantly to the functional requirementsÂ of the design program, and finally, should provide all this while meeting the clientâ€™s budget expectations. We offer the complete range of landscape services fromÂ schematic design to construction and tender documents, inÂ addition to site supervision and construction management. At UDC, we design, with the same passion and precision,Â small private urban gardens and large landscape solutions forÂ public spaces and compounds. We work as a team, taking into consideration the relationshipsÂ between buildings and their surroundings, the topography,Â walls, roads, and planting. We are aware of the influence exertedÂ by climate, and the relationships of earth, plants, water and building materials to create an architectural landscape integrated with the natural and man-made environment.View Portfolio
