Consulting Services for the Supreme Council of Antiquities

All work carried out by ARCHiNOS on registered historic monuments in Egypt is done in cooperation with and under the supervision of the Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities (since 2011 part of the Ministry of Antiquities and Heritage.)

In 2008-2010, ARCHiNOS also provided consulting services for the Supreme Council of Antiquities in partnership with MISRCONSULT engineering company, taking responsibility for architectural surveys and historical studies, architectural design, fine art conservation, and historical research within the projects. ARCHiNOS was involved in the following projects, which have been implemented in various degrees:

  • al-Sakakini Palace in Cairo, a landmark centre of a city district developed by its owner in the late 19th century;
  • al-Zaafarana Palace in Cairo, a late 19-th century monument now used by the ‘Ain Shams University;
  • ‘Abd al-Wahid al-Fasi House in Cairo, an Ottoman-period building in the heart of the mediaeval Muski area;
  • Shaykh ‘Amr Mosque in al-Dibi, in Bohayra Province in Western Delta, an early mosque rebuilt in subsequent periods and featuring a mediaeval/Ottoman minaret.
