Abstract

Rabat’s mellah contains many hazardous structures which threaten the safety of its inhabitants. The cultural value of the mellah and low income nature of its residents pose unique challenges and opportunities to restoration of the area. This project used two mellah homes as a case study in order to explore the structural and social dimensions of home rehabilitation in historic areas. By benchmarking with other restoration efforts, a report was delivered containing recommendations towards a sustainable method for citywide rehabilitation.
