Rabat, Morocco

In the embassy district of Rabat, Villa Diyafa is an urban retreat with state of the art wellness facilites, a 25 metre pool and a spa. It has been heralded for its creative design, and for providing a luxury escape within an extremely busy business district. They wanted a library that would speak to a wider sense of place for their guests.

In their lobby lounge we put together a collection that contained half English language titles and half French titles to appeal to both tourists and local business travellers alike. For the English titles we provided a selection of literary classics, and sourced some older copies for the titles that looked at Marrakesh and Morocco specifically, to give the library a lived-in feel. We added a small paperback library in French and illustrated coffee table books to go on display to guests.
