The Role of Interior Design to Meet Functional Needs of the Residential Units' Residents within Walled communities in Cairo

Karam Abdallah


In Egypt -since the beginning of the third millennium- the society of Cairo has witnessed a constructional expansion of new cities for people of class A to live within walled communities which provide luxury and safety. Due to the diversity of tangible and non-tangible needs of this class, this research aims to identify such needs from the occupant and the interior designer’s perspective; this will help evaluate the requirements provided by large construction companies, which will highlight the role of the interior designer.
