Progress at Club Liko in Cairo, Egypt

Club Liko, the ladies membership club and children’s edutainment and enrichment center we designed and are producing for our client in Cairo, Egypt, experienced a delay in obtaining a building permit due to the Arab Spring revolution there. Revolutions have a tendency to further complicate slow-moving bureaucracies.

The building permit was finally issued in November, and construction is under way. It takes a lot of imagination to believe what is under construction will end up looking like the final project we designed. We’ll be heading back over there in March to check out construction progress and make some final finish material selections.

When completed, Club Liko will be a three-story building with basement parking and outdoor terraces, patios and a children’s discovery play garden
