The project involves the restoration, repair, and introduction of a museum programme to the 15th century mausoleum complex. This was a part of restoration proposal for the Medina of Tunis. The complex includes three main constituent parts: the mausoleum giving onto an arcaded open courtyard and a three-aisle mosque preceded by a portico. The vestibules and the former pilgrims' chambers have been transformed into exhibition rooms and house a museum of Islamic ceramics as well as specimens of Arabic calligraphy.
The complex displays an overall late Andalusian style with tiled gable roofs, porticoes resting on horse-shoe arches and ceramic tiles executed in the cuerda seca" technique (introduced from Spain into the Maghreb in the 15th century).
