Dou­ble doors (above) lead to the front court­yard and splash pool. In true Moroc­can style, small ta­bles, in­clud­ing a bread ta­ble used by bread-sellers in the old city to carry and sell their wares and a pouffe cov­ered in metal­lic fab­ric (right), work to­gether to cre­ate an in­ter­est­ing and prac­ti­cal cen­tre­piece. The ceil­ings in the liv­ing area (left) are cov­ered in grass mats tra­di­tion­ally used against walls in Moroc­can homes to keep the in­tense sum­mer heat at bay. The large pen­dant lamp is made of stretched goat's skin. Elab­o­rately en­graved plas­ter of Paris strips – typ­i­cally used to dec­o­rate walls, ceil­ings, win­dow frames and door­ways in Morocco – sur­round the front door (far right); Kun­dra ap­plied them us­ing ce­ment and painted them white.
