Maktabi – Creative Office Spaces was founded on the ethos that community is important. Specifically, that the creative community is important. A space that values privacy, while encouraging collaboration and exchange. You can have your own, fully-furnished private office starting today.
Belonging to Orient for Film and Theatre Productions, this project is heavily informed by the arts. But Maktabi goes beyond our mother company’s world of arts and culture, welcoming individuals and organizations working in the creative sector at large. Fashion, film, theater, advertising, journalism, architecture, music, design; the list is long and wide. Our aim is to create a vibrant and eclectic community within Maktabi. One that compliments, challenges, and supports each other.
Maktabi’s location is central and iconic. We are located in Downtown Cairo in El Shourbagy building, built 110 years ago. This makes it easy for you to get to your meetings in the 6th of October, New Cairo, and everywhere in between. But don’t be intimidated by Downtown’s infamous lack of parking spots; we know the area well and where its hidden parking garages are.
We mean it when we say we’re creative office spaces. The workspaces are designed by different interior designers to give each a unique identity. Along with a fully-furnished office, your long-term rental package is all-inclusive, with commitment being flexible. You can rent a space for a month, or for a year. Leave the design and management of your office to us. All you have to do is come in with passion and a goal.
Beyond our primary function of offering private offices for long-term rental, Maktabi’s aim is to nurture the different nooks and crannies of the creative community. Stay tuned for our workshops program launching in 2022, right out of our meeting room.
