Due to its exclusive location, Morocco has been influenced by numerous cultures throughout the years: different and unique design elements can be seen in the architecture buildings throughout Morocco but the strongest influence in the Moroccan architecture is Islam.
What sets Moroccan architecture apart is not only its exceptional blend of different architecture design elements but also the exceptional features of each of its traditional and contemporary architecture buildings. The Moroccan Riads have different purposes and very different architectural designs and we present to you some of them below.
This Moroccan architecture building and a new project have just eight rooms, few enough that each gets a share of the fragrant honeysuckle and jasmine scents wending up from the center courtyard.
With just five rooms, Dar Kawa, in a Moroccan architecture building and a renovated 17th-century townhouse that once served as a spiritual retreat, is as energetic a respite as it is aesthetic.
With an original Arab-Andalusian colonial-style architecture with French touches: this Marrakech Riad is one of the most supreme Moroccan architecture building with a unique design.
This Marrakech Riad is a typical home more than a hotel, with antiques, and an intimate garden offering shade beneath sprawling banana and lemon trees. It is a stunning Moroccan architecture building with a unique design, full of Moroccan furniture pieces.
The Riad Jaaneman relies heavily on Italian art-deco influence with Italian bathroom fixtures, contemporary Italian art, and lots of Italian marble to highly refined effect. As a Morrocan architecture building great symbol, it also has touches from Spain, South African artifacts, geometric headboards, and textiles purchased from the souks just steps away from its oversize carved wooden front door.
This stunning Marrakech riad in the old town is rich in both history and design diversity and also offers an understated approach that soothes the aesthetic and the emotional senses.
The Marrakech Riads are traditional homes, private residences, and palaces in Morocco. All rooms open to this courtyard and feature windows only towards this central space. Courtyards are often decorated with a fountain and orange or lemon trees. Many ancient riads as greats symbols of Moroccan architecture have been renovated recently in Marrakesh and have been repurposed today as hotels and restaurants.
