The project consisted of rebuilding the existing NRP facilities, which are housed in buildings within the Media City complex on the outskirts of Cairo. White Mark created radio on-air and pre-production studios for Nagoom FM, which broadcasts current hits in the Arabic language, and its English-language sister station Nile FM.
As part of the undertaking, White Mark also designed two professional-level recording studios so that NRP can create original music content for the stations and develop local talent by making facilities accessible to both artists and producers in the country. The Egyptian firm plans to set up a production, management and publishing arm to further facilitate this creative development with the new studios serving as the foundation of its production hub.
The two radio studios share common facilities with the on-air rooms both facing a shared talk studio. Also shared are the machine room, office and reception spaces. White Mark also designed a pre-production suite, which both stations use.
U.K. company Langdale Technical, which handled the installation for all four studios, migrated much of the equipment from the former facilities of NRP and reinstalled it in the new ones. See a live video feed from one of the NRP studios here.
