Zevaco Residence and Studio Morocco

A single-storey residence conceived for the architect's own use for both living and working facilities. The plan develops in a circular pattern. Bedrooms and services are organized around a central living area capped by a movable glass roof converting it into an open patio. The continuity and definition of spaces is obtained by the diverse treatment of levels, landscaping, and water pools forming a link between exterior and interior areas. Reinforced concrete columns and load-bearing masonry walls make up the main structure.
