"The Villa Hosni Omar, [...] as well as the Sada El-Bakreya apartment house and "La Giardinara" Kiosk, also mirror the architectural changes then taking place in Europe at the turn of the century. Each of them shows a similar tendency to eradicate all historical references in both form and detail through the use of flat roofs, plain wall surfaces and industrial materials."
