He was a member of the Group of Moroccan Modern Architects (GAMMA), a group affiliated with the International Congress of Modern Architecture (CIAM), led by Michel Écochard.
A single-storey residence conceived for the architect's own use for both living and working facilities. The plan developes in a circular pattern. Bedrooms and services are organised around a central living area capped by a movable glass roof converting it into an open patio. The continuity and definition of spaces is obtained by the diverse treatment of levels, landscaping, and water pools forming a link between exterior and interior areas. Reinforced concrete columns and load-bearing masonry walls make up the main structure.
