Kaussar Residence
Rabat, Morocco
This single storey house is essentially L-shaped in plan, with different functions in either wing. The entrance, at the intersection of the wings, is covered by a conical-shaped roof on a quarter circle plan. One wing contains the garage, kitchen, servants' rooms, and work area. The other wing includes living areas and bedrooms, set around a small patio. A gallery runs alongside the living room and parent's bedroom at the back opening through two large semi-circular arches onto the garden. The construction is the reinforced concrete columns and beams, with hollow brick infill, natural stone exterior finishing and whitewashed cement rendered walls.
