Marrakech, known as the “Red City,” is a popular tourist destination in Morocco, famous for its vibrant markets, stunning architecture, and rich cultural heritage. The city is renowned for its traditional Moroccan houses called riads and guesthouses, which are built in a specific architectural style that combines elements of traditional Moroccan design with modern features. Riads are multi-story buildings built around a central courtyard, while guesthouses are smaller but also feature a central courtyard and other traditional Moroccan decorative elements.
The construction of riads and guesthouses in Marrakech typically follows a similar process to that of any other type of building but with specific considerations that need to be taken into account. Firstly, the design must adhere to certain architectural principles unique to Moroccan culture, such as orienting living spaces towards the central courtyard. Additionally, the use of traditional materials such as earth bricks, tadelakt, and zellige is essential to provide natural insulation and an authentic aesthetic. Building these houses also requires skilled artisans, known as “maalems,” who are highly skilled craftsmen specialized in traditional Moroccan construction.
