‘A hymn to the beauty of Moroccan architecture’: Casablanca hammams undergo complete renovation
POSTED 24 Jul 2019 . BY Jane Kitchen
The Hammams of the Casablanca Hassan II Mosque in Morocco have been redeveloped, renovated, and are open to the public for the first time.

Deep Nature is operating and managing the hammams through its Moroccan subsidiary.

Built at the same time as the mosque, the hammams are inspired by tradition and have undergone a complete renovation, respecting the architectural authenticity of the baths.

Located beneath the esplanade of the Hassan II Mosque, the Hammams des Femmes and the Hammams des Hommes – one for men, one for women – occupy an area of 3,000sq m each (32,000sq ft), for a total of 6,000sq m (65,000sq ft).

Each hamman includes a lobby with tea room and changing rooms, along with a traditional Moor bath consisting of a warm room, hot room and very hot room, and a service area with a scrub and soap room and a large, multi-purpose heated saltwater pool of 300sq m (3,200sq ft) called the ‘Bath of Health’.

The hammams are undergoing a pre-opening phase, which started in May, to last a few months.

Described as a “hymn to the beauty of Moroccan architecture and art of living”, the hammams have been designed with refined materials, elegant forms and colours to be a serene place of healing for the body and mind, and an area for contemplation.
