SHOWROOM PRESTIGIA | CASABLANCA, MOROCCO | 2012
The real estate company Prestigia invited ATB to present a project for the design of its showroom in Casablanca, Morocco. They wanted a unique building, which stood out of the surroundings, a challenge the architects knew how to carry out with mastery, in which the materials and the very shape and angles of the building are the protagonists. With a very simple floor plan and shape, the most important factor is the main material: Macael, a white marble from a quarry in Almeria that has not been treated to obtain a different effect which is much more irregular and pure. The shape of the building, which seems to be suspended in the air, draws attention and manages to highlight Prestigia´s idea. The interior marble is combined with superior materials such as wood that provide the warmth the space needs. A project that unites tradition and modernity.
