Who We Are
Maktabi is a new creative office space situated right in the bustling center of Cairo that offers individuals and organizations in the creative sector fully equipped, long-term rentals.
But what’s in a name? Well, when it comes to us, a maktab by any other name wouldn’t sound quite as sweet – and that’s because we’re all about that possessive “i” in the end. It’s a small difference that makes all the difference. It’s knowing that your space at Maktabi is truly your own.
Your new work address is not only in the heart of the city but it’s also located in a highly sought-after heritage building that dates back to Egypt’s Belle Époque era. And while that’s just the stunning exterior, you’ll really want to buckle down and get to work once you see the actual spaces. Everything is sunny and bright, clean and organized, thanks to the cutting-edge interior design that brings out the very best of this architectural gem. You’ll be happy to come to work in the morning and proud to welcome clients to Maktabi because your space reflects the same high standards you set both for yourself and for your work.
Just like its appearance, Maktabi as a concept is also anything but ordinary. You’ll find yourself surrounded by like-minded and highly focused individuals who all want to make a difference in their own ways. Choose from range of private offices or make use of Maktabi’s communal spirit where creative minds can come together and thrive on interaction. Either way, you’ll find the space and level of exchange that suits your needs of the moment.
And while you focus on your projects, we’ll actively assist you in any way we can. So not only will you never have to worry about utility bills or maintenance, but you’ll also benefit from Maktabi’s add-on services that include support for both digital and offline marketing, logistics and coordination, PR, events management and planning, and, last but not least, production. Everything is designed to give you an ideal base from where you can confidently venture out into the unpredictable creative field. So hold that meeting and organize that workshop. Or start planning them. We’ll take care of the details.
But it doesn’t stop there! The upcoming Maktabi workshop program will also help you grow personally and professionally, with sessions focused on developing key skills and knowledge necessary to thrive in the creative industry, as well as nurturing your own personal habits, goals and inspirations.
Nothing feels quite as good as knowing that you’re part of a community that understands and supports you, and that wants to see you live up to your most ambitious potential. So keep in mind what Maktabi stands for – and remember that we're with you, every step of the way.
