Architecture Aesthetic Unity in Architecture Great lengths have been taken to ensure that the town and its buildings conform to the highest architectural standards. The town’s unique blend of traditional and modern elements is the result of the dedication and work of an impressive list of prestigious architects. American Michael Graves, the winner of many of the world’s architectural highest ranking awards, designed several of El Gouna’s hotels, as well as the Golf Club, and Golf Villas. The earth tones and sea color splashes, which characterize these projects, helped to set the tone of the resort. Italian architect, Alfredo Freda, designed El Gouna’s attractive Marina, the first of its kind on the Red Sea, as well as the popular and exclusive Tuscany style Hill Villas. Shahab Mazhar, a prominent Egyptian architect, was inspired by Mediterranean influences in his creation of the beachfront White Villas. The beautiful Nubian Villas are the work of the award winning architects Ramy El-Dahan and Ahmad Hamdy, who also hail from Egypt. El Gouna Neighborhoods: Designed by world renowned architects, El Gouna offers everything from exclusive private villas to cozy apartments in the heart of the town. All properties are waterfront and feature a variety of architectural styles, sizes, and locations.
