Jardin Rouge is an astounding artists’ residency nestled nearby a typical Moroccan village in the outskirts of Marrakech.
Launched in 2007 by the private Montresso Art Foundation, Jardin Rouge is a haven where contemporary (and Street Art) artists of various backgrounds are invited to build an artistic project in a flexible timeframe.
The foundation imagined a sanctuary where artists are given all the necessary means to source their inspiration, reflect and experiment in a unique environment. Much more than an artist’s workshop, Jardin Rouge is an intimate space where worldwide amateurs, collectors, and art critics can exchange over their passion for art. source : trend land
When Caitlin and Samuel Dowe-Sandes bought a 1950s house in Gueliz, a neighborhood in the heart of modern Marrakech, they painted it in shades of inky blue, clear azure, and cool gray, animated by similar colors in the vividly patterned tiles they produce in their small factory in town. The couple came to Marrakech nine years ago, with the idea of taking a year off from their busy Los Angeles–based lives. Two months after arriving, they started a bespoke tile company, Popham Design, with a factory that grew to employ some 60 locals. source : Elle Decor
Passionate about Marrakesh and its culture, Stéphane Atlas and Claude Challe have transformed this former marriage hall into a unique venue decked out in an Oriental pop design bar & restaurant.
Hosted within the Fellah Hotel, Dar al Ma mun provides artists and intellectuals a unique structure in Africa, bringing together a multi-lingual library and literary translation center, an artist’s residency and educational activities. It is the first cultural structure in North Africa and Middle East to be labelled by Unesco.
Fellah hotel was born from the spontaneous wish to share a desire of research and cultural enrichment.
Designed by Belgian interior designer Esther Gutmer and architect Helena Marczewski. A breath of fresh air and contemporary spirit!
