This project, Terasses El menzeh, is one of the first projects in Morocco to comply with RTCM thermal regulations. it is made up of six adjacent buildings in three blocks with 72 apartments with orientation for optimal sunshine in all rooms (double L-shaped façade). the three blocks of buildings are articulated in three volumes around green patios promoting privacy of semi-private spaces.
