Maison Edouard François' proposal for the Gardens of Anfa envisions a breathtaking fusion of landscape design and architecture in Morocco. This new mixed-use neighborhood planned for the historic city of Casablanca features organically-shaped towers enshrouded by flourishing jasmine and bougainvillea. The green master plan also features a whole host of outdoor elements such as courtyards, trees and fountains to transform the site into a luscious landscape.
At the heart of the design is a series of tower blocks, each of which is connected by a central plaza. These include three mid-rise residential towers, a low-rise office tower, and a series of residential blocks. The gardens bloom around these purpose-built structures to create living community spaces. Residents will even be able to cultivate their building facades, as the flower beds will extend to the tower walls.
The studio plans to develop the residential blocks by 2017, all of which will be concealed within the landscape itself. We can’t wait to see photos of the final project – imagine a wilderness that climbs beyond the limits of the residences themselves.
