Contemporary North African Style

Working in collaboration with French architectural firm Studio KO, designer Willem Smit whose background in stage production and as a leading Marrakech based hotelier has informed his sense of style, set about creating a home outside of Essaouira that is both simple and serene yet as striking and dramatic as the Moroccan desert. 

Constructed using a palette of earthy, elemental materials and a purity of form, the architects capture and utilize the natural light as an additional building block, crafting the materials by hand and embracing their imperfections. 

Environmentally sensitive to it’s surroundings, the structural composition creates a defined flow in and around the property in a spirited reimagining of a traditional Moroccan homes, while Smit’s innovative interiors are an eclectic synthesis of traditional and contemporary design alive with color, art and a free-form design philosophy. 

The result is a stylish and tranquil retreat in harmony with the country’s architectural heritage and defined by a deep appreciation for art, design and creative expression. 

Description

Set atop a hill overlooking the desert and the Atlantic in the distance, this luxury villa in Morocco is a sublime contemporary version of traditional North African homes.    

Employing spare sculptural lines with earthy materials in harmonious connection with the desert environment, the villa was designed by Marrakech based Studio KO in a mix of style that honors it’s cultural roots while infusing it with modern refinement.   

The luminous living spaces are organized around the pool and central courtyard  and feature an open-plan kitchen and dining space, a lounge with a fireplace and three double bedrooms (there’s a fourth double bedroom in the guest cottage).

Designer Willem Smit infuses the spaces with a chic and understated mix of  vintage pieces, colorful textiles and tiles and authentic Moroccan flavor.

Surrounded by over three acres of olive groves and undulating countryside, the property is a private and serene escape and the ideal place to relax and recharge. 

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Daily breakfast included, full time housekeeper and groundskeeper with optional meal services available. Wifi throughout, kitchen and bath amenities.

AROUND

Essaouira is an enchanting port city on the southern coast of Morocco caught in a tempestuous love affair with the Alizé trade winds. Known historically as the Port of Timbuktu, this blustery city of screaming seagulls, European-style forts, and colorful fishing boats feels intriguing and romantic. Its spice-infused 18th century medina has a lovely creative vibe, and its seaside is dotted with windsurfers. Don’t miss the fish market with chatty fishmongers eager to prepare you a feast of their daily catch.

LOCATION

Essaouira, Morocco. Nearest Airport: Essaouira Airport (33km)

BEST TIME TO VISIT: Spring and Fall with September through December for ideal weather. But the coastal city is pleasant for most of the year with occasional windy and hot conditions.
