Decorative arts, craftmanship & Sustainability
Living Architectural Heritage
La Sultana Marrakech has been refurbished using traditional Moroccan decoration techniques, to create an intemporal place of a bygone era with the comfort of present time. The craftsmen experts (Melems), stone and plaster carvers and zellige makers all use techniques and knowledge passed from generation to generation and are highly valuable today in preserving Morocco’s cultural heritage.
Decades after the refurbishment, we are keeping centuries-old techniques alive at La Sultana Marrakech and are using them to tell stories of the present through an Architectural Heritage tour of the property. The tour is led by our Living Architectural & Heritage Curators who walks guests through the different decorative arts zellige, plaster, brick, tadelakt, craftsmanship techniques. The tour includes a stop at their workshop to see them perform and feel the materials and tools they used. In doing so, we keep traditions alive for future generations and nourish an avidity for understanding these local traditions.
