Hamonic+Masson & Associés is envisioning a new Casablanca via the redesign of its financial district, Casa Anfa. The Paris-based firm, which just won a city-sponsored competition to pioneer a transformation of the area, has unveiled big plans for Lot 65-2. The plans respond to questions on the urban scale as well as preservation and sustainability.
“Form and urbanity” underscore the project’s drive for reimagining the links between high-rise entities in the Moroccan city.
The firm stresses the powerful architectural heritage of Casablanca as a driving force in thinking of the project as a means to bring a new form and new identity – along with heightened attention to biodiversity – in Casa Anfa.
Hamonic+Masson’s proposal for the renewal of Casa-Anfa draws upon the cultural heritage of Morocco in addition to the sustainability and form of the project. Lot 65-2 presents new ways of living for residents in the district, but, more broadly, challenges citizens across Casablanca to reconsider the area as a focal point of the city.
