maison edouard françois has presented designs for ‘the gardens of anfa’, a mixed-use development to be completed in casablanca, marocco. the project comprises three residential towers in addition to a low-rise office building that is surrounded by additional accommodation. a central public park connects the scheme, offering a range of amenities for its inhabitants.

 

the large area of parkland contains four individual towers that are clad with either white jasmine or multicolored bougainvillea flowers. lower buildings are set back from the street contrasting the large scale of the four high-rises. at ground level, the layered landscaping sees washingtonia trees planted in the foreground as a dense forest, while behind, flowers and other types of bright plantation add color and vibrancy to the site.

  • Those plantings on the towers will be really hard to manage. Physically but also in the cooperation of the residents, required for maintenance access. Where will they hang their clothes? Good luck with it, I’ll watch with interest.
