Moroccan Houses

By in Uncategorized with 1 Comment

Moroccan Houses come in many forms, the most famous of which is the Riad.

A classical Riad is a four sided building surrounding a central courtyard. Originally they had only one storey. The courtyard would have four symetric gardens planted with citrus or other fruit trees such as pomegranite. The centre of the courtyard would feature a fountain, usually in white marble.

As time has passed, Moroccan Houses have evolved. Riads are now typically two storey buildings. The central fountain has often been replaced by a plunge pool. They do, however, maintain their distinctive italianate feel, reminder us of the old Roman villa.

And with the arrival of foreign investors in the late twentieth century, the Riad underwent some radical changes. New built Riads now bloom in the old Medinas of Morocco. Some are ugly … and some are very successful.
