Luxury villa in Marrakech – IBRAAZE
“Ibraaze” is a newly built, minimalist villa located 20 km south of Marrakech. It is the result of an encounter between an art connoisseur and an architect passionate about “Land art”, an art movement in which landscape and the architectural structure are inextricably linked. A magnificent luxury villa in Marrakech.
The earthworks began in 2002 and the residence was completed in 2009. Thereby, a truly unique hideaway was created, where its owners can enjoy privacy at the fullest.
Upon entering the estate through the driveway, after a few minutes you notice an enormous lake of 5000 m2, a beautiful garden and an oasis of olive trees.
Ibraaze is a perfect example of an organic symbiosis between minimalist architecture and the refined landscape.
This exceptional residence has a splendid view on the snow-capped peaks of Atlas mountains and a total territory of 4ha of land. In order to create his perfect world, the owner did not leave anything to chance. Every element is thought through to make the creation complete.
The apparent simplicity of the architecture hides behinds its walls sophisticated technical aspects, such as underfloor heating, air conditioning, heated pool and much more. In this stunning, fully enclosed estate, you enjoy complete privacy and tranquility, with all the comfort you need. Besides an impressive 50-m-long swimming pool, there is also a private pool by the master suite and a hammam. The property is in a perfect condition, since it is taken care of by its permanent staff that has been looking after this beautiful place for years.
The villa was built on two levels (with respect to the yard) in order to maximize the view on the gardens and the south side of Atlas Mountains. The linear concept of the house ensures functional simplicity, along with the wide sliding windows, minimal furniture and materials used for the fl and walls. On the higher level we can find the entrance, kitchen, summer bar, dining room and the nook overlooking the main living area. On the lower level there are the winter bar, steam room-hammam, movie room and the main lounge enjoying the double height and in this way maximizing the view on the landscape.
Located off the Road to Ourika South of Marrakech and in the direction of the Atlas the villa boasts the most impressive views of the snow-capped mountains.
From the villa one may admire the spectacle of the lake, century old olive trees and a well looked after “wild” meadow… With the back drop of Atlas to top it all off.
Once this scenery was set, the architecture had to be minimal, non discursive and adapt to the particularities of Marrakech’s climate. Thus, the owner’s wish to avoid reproducing the archetypes of the traditional architecture allowing the architect to adopt a contemporary style. The apparent simplicity of the volumes discretely resonates with the extreme sophistication of all the technical services.
With more than 2000 sq m built over a 4 hectare plot, with ten bedrooms all with en suite bathrooms and a very large living and dining areas he has created a truly unique and very special property.
If you are looking for a luxury villa in Marrakech, you will not find a better place to enjoy the nature and tranquillity of this environment. A unique sensation for the senses.
