How would you describe Riad No. 37 in a nutshell?
Riad No. 37 is a design-driven residence in the heart of Marrakech’s medina and can accommodate up to 16 guests in its eight rooms. It encompasses interior courtyards, two swimming pools and spaces that invite interaction with others and time alone.
What is the story behind Riad No. 37, what was your inspiration to create it?
A riad is not like a hotel. It’s a place where you receive guests and treat them as though they are family. When the owners purchased the riad in 2019, it was abandoned and not much more than a ruin. They restored it completely and did all of the design themselves, with the help of local craftspeople.
All of the details are handmade and the spaces are designed to encourage meaningful interaction between guests. It was important to the owner that guests found it to be a place of comfort after the hustle and bustle of Marrakech’s medina.
How would you describe the atmosphere and interior design of Riad No. 37?
The interior design draws on Scandinavian aesthetics while using local materials and craftsmanship. We believe in creating a balance between stimulation and reflection, engaging with others and spending time alone, so there are spaces that allow for both.
