The overall architectural treatment is inspired from the Arabo-Mauresque style of adjoining constructions and other historic buildings in the town, with arcades resting on round arches and columns. The Chraka building comprises an open inner courtyard decorated with a fountain. Great care has been taken to ensure a panoramic view over the sea from most flats. The Chraka complex includes: - 19 shops and a bank on the ground floor; - 29 flats on the three upper floors; and - ten offices with a separate entrance on the first floor. The Bab Essour complex comprises: - 13 shops on the ground floor; and - 18 identical flats on the three upper storeys.
