Four Seasons Hotel, CasablancaThe External Environment
Fronting the Atlantic Ocean, the new intimately scaled Four Seasons Casablanca offers a resort style hotel, blending textured sand-coloured contemporary architecture with a modern Moroccan interior. dpa worked closely with GA Design International, London to design the main public areas including the ‘Mint’ tea lounge and EDG Design, California for the design of the ‘Bleu’ speciality restaurant and ‘Altitude 33’ pool bar.
Overlooking the oceanfront on the prestigious corniche, the hotel is part of the Anfa Place development, being the first master-planned construction on the White City’s shore. The guest experience is set off on arrival at the inspiring and sensational Porte Cochere, which consists of 1225 Moroccan shaped pots, each individually lit. The understated and discreet entrance then gives way to a majestic mix of interior spaces with a building geometry that is based around the linear courtyard and gardens.
