Contemporary Kasbah designed by Studio Ko: Villa E in Morocco

Contemporary Kasbah designed by Studio Ko - Villa E (1)

Studio KO designed this minimalist mountain lodge in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains in Morocco. Studio KO is formed of architects Karl Fournier and Olivier Marty. Locally-sourced Ouriko stone gives the Kasbah home the distinctive red color often associated with nearby Marrakech.

Description by Studio Ko: The Villa E, was designed as a contemporary Kasbah (Moroccan traditional fortified house). The idea was to create a design that could fit in the landscape as if it had been there even before us. As the land is mostly facing the north, we drew a plan so that the northern facade would look blind and stark, imitating the strength of the old Kasbahs that have been standing for centuries.
