Our small dar features handmade zellij mosaic floors, painted ceilings and shutters, massharabi paneling, natural cedar windows and doors, several stained glass windows, and a large rooftop terrace. The highlight of the messareiya, though, is intricately carved plasterwork, which is original and required little restoration. Simple decorations, antique textiles and handmade furniture accent the architectural features of the house.
Old & new, in perfect harmony
Old zellij, freshly laid following original patterns, unifies the overall design of the house on all four floors, while new plasterwork complements the old. Handmade Moroccan couches are fitted with nubby silk covers and bolster pillows. Lighting fixtures and two closets fronted with antique doors were made to order.
A large kitchen on the ground floor and a smaller kitchen in the roof-top menzeh are outfitted with refrigerators and gas cooking facilities. The washing machine is located in the menzeh.Dar Borj Dahab is fully stocked with linens, dinnerware, cutlery and cooking utensils, fans, and space heaters.
