Art Deco, monument, Sidi Ifni, Morocco

This Art Deco bungalow in Sidi Ifni (Morocco) dates from the time when this seaside town was colonised by the Spanish, who left as recently as 1969. Sadly, the house is falling apart along with many similar edifices of this era including one called the Twist Club and another that takes the form of a vast ocean liner.

It’s unclear whether the state of these buildings is due to lack of funding or the fact they embody a tainted history. But this little house is undeniably beautiful, a tiny jewel waiting to enter a different era with a new and relevant purpose. And, if it were up to me, I would patch it up, throw open the shutters and launch a photo gallery to draw in the people of Sidi Ifni.,_Decoration_and_Detail_from_the_Twenties_and_Thirties
