MOROCCAN COUNTRY CHAMBRE REINVENTED

Someone asked me to redefine a typical Moroccan 'chambre'. It is a one room house that you often find on the countryside. Families use it for summer stays or just when someone is visiting them. Most of them or all purpose rooms and that is exactly what it should be. Simple and a shelter against extreme weather conditions, because most of the time people are outside. If you want to see the whole design, I will post it in my blog and tell you a little more about the materials I want to use. Moroccan rooms are a good eco friendly example of how to use what you can find on the field to build a house. this means walls are often made of stones and roofs of wooden branches. Floors are from polished concrete or packed earth. windows use to be very tiny to keep it as cool as possible but we opted for a we opted for a large gate / window with a semi-transparent pergola.Some  bushes and the window hatch can create an optional windshield.
