Douar Samra / Riad Samsara
The Douar is the traditional dwelling of the Berber villagers of Morocco. Douar Samra is a small and colourful guesthouse in one of the highest villages of the mighty Toubkal Massif, imbued with the warmth and vitality of its charismatic owner. Set in the north-west of the Medina 20 minutes’ walk from the main square, Riad Samsara is a very beautifully restored, ethically-run, traditional small riad.
d.studio were asked to create a suitably distinct online presence for these two unique, but linked properties. Working closely with them, we built two websites that evoked the quirky, yet warm and welcoming feel that is key to their appeal, whilst making sure that the two sites were visually harmonious, but clearly different at the same time. The site uses parallax animation to bring the bring the illustrated environments to life, filling the screen and making a strong impact on the screen.
