Co-Habitation, 5 Experimental Houses and Collective Farm in Morocco
5 experimental houses project within a communal farm is located in Marrakech, Morocco. Designed by Kilo Architectures, the project offers an alternative modes of co-habitation and domesticity, both within the home and between homes. The Co-habitation experiment houses project here was completed in 2011 with 2000 sqm building area.
Each house is one room wide and sixty meters long. The two extreme ends of the line (160 meters apart) house the private spaces for reflection, an architectural studio for one house and a yoga studio for the other. Then, as one moves towards the middle, the spaces become increasingly more public and social, with the center held by the guest quarters of the two houses (thus allowing one family to ‘colonize’ the guest quarters of the other house if needed). In each house, all the spaces benefit from a double orientation to the two different orchards and interior and exterior spaces flow into each other.
