The project

The endowment fund Locus – created by the architect Jana Revedin – has the objective of promoting durable architecture. Locus was asked to intervene in the Chiffonniers neighborhood in Cairo where the “Chiffonniers” have created a real economy of recycling and transforming the waste in resources. The ambition of Locus is to make of Chiffonniers the first eco-neighborhood in Cairo. The electrification of the streets has been the first need faced by Zabbaleen, Locus has participated to the installment of ecological public electrification. In collaboration with Zabbaleen, the architects of Locus have created a lightning prototype with recovered and recycled materials. In partnership with the company juwi EnR, Synergie Solaire was in charge of the measurement and the installment of the photovoltaic unite destined to feed the public electrification network.
