The preliminary studies conducted on Harawi House in Cairo (Egypt) in the 1970s added to the historical knowledge of the edifice. In addition, the work undertaken since 1986 has either confirmed certain assumptions or enabled discoveries that shed fresh light on the lives that have been lived in these houses. The technical achievements carried out in restoring the Al-Sinnari House, also in Cairo, are presented in the second part of the article. Bernard Maury was appointed to head the Mission française de coopération pour la sauvegarde du Caire Islamique (French Co-operative Task Force for the Conservation of Islamic Cairo). Museum International wishes to thank Bernard Maury for providing the original material that forms the basis of this article.
