The design

We wanted to build a “Riad” in the Medina of Marrakech, a typical Arab home, and make it a “maison d’hotes”, a kind of guest house. The important thing was that the hotel retained a domestic dimension, a place where tourists could be welcomed by a “family” without just being another tourist among hundreds of others. Finding land that had the necessary specifications for a building of this type was not easy, but we found the perfect spot in the heart of the old town, near the monuments and tourist attractions, and soon after, I began to draw the design. Thanks to my decades of experience working in Marrakech and the enthusiasm for the work, the design took shape almost spontaneously. The months of gestation enabled me to consider and define in my head the geometry, the spaces, the shapes, the colours and the materials, and so I put it all down on paper.
