Wecome to Riad O3! An amazing charming and well located place
Located in the heart of the Medina, this riad (just renovated) is adjoining one of the palaces of the king, the Dar El Bacha ( the old palace of the Pacha of Marrakech ).
It benefits from the proximity of the garden of the palace, the terrace very flowered is surrounded by tree.
The house of 400 M2 is structured in U shape around a patio of 100 m2 with a pond/pool in its center .
The pool is 2.5 x 9m long and 1,40m deep all along.
The originality of this riad is to be devoted to contemporary art, due to its owner’s activity .
The architecture is modernist with arab hints, and many works from important African and Middle Eastern artists are hang on the walls : african artist Otobong Nkanga; algerian artist Zoulikha Bouabdellah ; iranian artist Rokni Haerizadeh; syrian artists Fadi Yazigi, Abdullah Murad and Mouneer al Sahraani; turkish artist Nejat Sati …
On the terrace, zelliges (mosaic tiles) reproduce modernist abstract works from Mondrian and Malevich .
The house also includes a rooftop 100 M2 terrace with 2 covered verandahs .
The pool in the center of the patio, slim and long, recalls the ponds of the Alhambra of Granada , from which also comes the design of the zellige that extends the pool, with a geometric interlacing pattern.
