17 images 1 2 »

Jacqueline Foissac, is the high priestess of the rehabilitation Marrakech architecture and as a pioneer, she was to bring her inimitable key of elegance to this rhyad. Because it’s impossible to circumvent the great lady when it comes to transformations of old residences into médinas or creations, there is not a European celebrity, actor, intellectual, artist, dressmaker, or politician who does not court her to see their house carrying Jacqueline’s stamp of design. At the beginning, this rhyad was a contemporary construction of the 1930’s Glaoui de Marrakech, beneffiting from a panoramic view on the Atlas and the médina. Jacqueline performed a magicial transformation of this half-ruined property; each one of her interventions adding grace where it was hidden or non-existent. Fabrics of the artist Claudio Bravo point out the origins of the owner. The result is a house which wants to be traditional, the whole creating an atmosphere of great quietude.
