Immouzer Palace Landscape

Location: Morocco
Assignment: Competition 2014


The conceptual approach aims to reach a sense of order and proper zonings for the allocated areas within and beyond the defined scope of the brief. The general approach is allocating architectural and landscaping measures to enhance the outdoor qualities and to establish different hierarchies within the perimeters of the existing palace.

With sequential spaces of courtyards, the concept attempts to enhance the architectural quality of the existing palace and tries to adopt different hierarchies of spaces necessary to meet the Royal protocols and standards. These zones are expressed in fenced yards, courtyards or perforated walls or arcades.The architectural language of the proposal is a contemporary interpretation, reminiscent of the architecture and gardens of the Al Andalus.
