Elegant Riad, in key location within the Marrakech's Medina.
Once through the door, the riad is a peaceful haven carefully thought out by designer and interior architect, Alain Martens. After being surrounded by celebrities and having a prolific life in London and New York, the designer chose to retire to the red city where he was able to express his respect for materials and local craftsmanship. As one of the emblematic figures of art and design in London in the 1970s, he was the first to bring London contemporary European designers including Armani, Cerruti, Chloé, Versace, Montana and Zegna. Among some of his best known achievements were the rooms of the George V in Paris, the banquet hall of the Hyde Park Hotel and the headquarters of Calvin Klein in New York. After life in the fast lane, Martens decided to devote himself to this riad to make it a haven of elegance, calm and serenity.The softness of the colours in the property compliment the bright ecru of the walls, extended by the verdigris, clear, cedar ceilings and balustrades. On the patio, everything is enhanced by the chlorophyll green of the vegetation and the touches of dynamic red of the tables and chairs that punctuate this open and fresh space. further enhanced by the transparent turquoise of the plunge pool. The lounges, the bouh, the dining room and the kitchen, which the patio serves, remain in the same spirit: light and soft colours, delicate decoration and meticulous finishes.This harmony is extended on the upper floor through the corridors, in the suites with light tadelakt bathrooms and the office-library suite.On the roof terrace, a second fully furnished living space allows you to enjoy the mild climate and where everything has been thought and designed so that comfort and serenity take precedence. Featuring a fully fitted kitchen, as well as a shower and toilet, there is no need to budge.
