Sijelmassi Residence
Casablanca, Morocco
This single-storey residence is symetrically laid out along a main axis running east-west in the direction of the sloping site. A central covered courtyard separates the reception and living areas from the sleeping quarters. The bedrooms are situated on the higher part of the site, while the more public oriented spaces occupy the lower part of the house and open to the garden and swimming pool. Glare and heat gain are controlled by means of thick walls and recessed windows on the western façade.
