Villa Ouidane in the hip Moroccan city of Marrakech is not your usual classically-styled Moroccan riad of wrought iron windows, beautifully carved timbers, geometric tiles and courtyard garden fountain. Instead this stylish villa turns tradition on its head with large splashes of bright, bold colour, furniture from the 50s and 60s mixed with quirky decor and modern art.
Designed by Belgian architect Quentin Wilbaux as a holiday home, the villa preserves the one key design element of Moroccan architecture, the courtyard garden. Each villa room overlooks a central garden filled with pepper trees and flanked with outdoor living and dining spaces designated with beautiful geometric tiled floors.
