Anyone who has ever traveled to Morocco will remember the terraced homes, the verdant Atlas mountains, and an enduring mystique that bewitches the soul, but imagine being able to capture that essence in a home? That's exactly what Guilhem Eustache did with the beautiful Fobe House commissioned by a Belgian film producer. Made out of locally-sourced natural materials and scattered on a massive plot of land just south of Marrakech, this 172 square foot home's smooth, simple lines contrast with the sometimes harsh surrounding landscape.
