WEEKEND ESCAPE: A CONTEMPORARY MOUNTAIN RETREAT

moroccogrey10

Villa E is a stunning mountain lodge built on the foothills of the Atlas Mountains, Morocco, by French designers Studio Ko. They designed the house with respect towards its landscape and a minimalist design approach. Local materials such as the red colored Ourika stone were used to create an interesting mix of tradition and modernity. Inside you find clean lines and modern design but also artisan objects such as handmade ceramics, vintage rugs and stone sculptures. To me the most striking feature are the full-height windows which give unobstructed views on all sides.

  1. Mmmmm…. I’d like to go there!!!

  2. Wow, this is a masterpiece. Amazing!

  3. Lovely contrast between stark mountain materials and colours, and modern design – does anyone know the design for the chandelier over the dining table?

  4. Hi,

    would have been nice to ask for decent photographs to use, we would have gladly provided them.
    Crediting the photographer Dan Glasser for his work would have been nice as well…

    To answer John, the chandelier above the dining table is a bespoke design from Studio KO. Realized by a local glassblower artist.
