More great work by Abbelkader




Abbelkader has recently been working on a house owned by Louis Macintosh - Dar Mernissi - and once again the reports on his work are glowing. Here is an excerpt from Louis' blog:

So how's the work going? Well slow but sure is the order of the day awaiting zellige to finish two bathrooms and then Abbelkader with the boys sweeps into full tadelakt mode to give it the finising sheen. They have finished the menzeh bathroom in a beautiful biscuit colour and I have the raised sink and funky taps as in the photo ready to be plumbed in.


Apparently they leave the tadelakt for fifteen days then give it a high polish to seal it completely should look great. Surprised at the number of visitors I have had recently purely to look at the tadelakt, not to see me, there has been Aussie Pete and Karen, Pizza Mike, Fred and Thierry from Laroussa and John and Jenny. I dont think anyone has seen Abbelkader's tadelakt before as he has his own style and i think he will be in great demand. His plasterwork is already renowned throughout the medina so there will be another string to his bow now.
