This is a great idea for a house in Toronto.

What is a riad?

The word riad comes from the Arabian term for garden  and it’s a traditional Moroccan house or palace with an interior garden or courtyard. That courtyard or garden is the central element of the building.

All of the rooms open into the central atrium space.The riads were inward focused, which allowed for family privacy and protection from the weather in Morocco,this design principle found support in Islamic notions of privacy for women inside residential gardens.

Staying in a riad is like staying in a palace each room is individually decorated with hand-carved doorways and hand-painted doors and shutters. Some rooms have private terraces some other might have a jacuzzi.

Today I want to share with you some of the most beautiful riad pictures. ENJOY !
