Morocco's finest aesthete

Back

For four decades, the architect and decorator Bill Willis was the unlikely point man in Morocco for voluptuous houses redolent of concubines and the woozy, opium-fogged dreamscapes of 19th-century Western painters like Georges Clairin. After purchasing Bill's Dar Noujoum riad in Marrakech, we have comissioned a documentary to be made about his life, and plan to turn his former home into an artist's residence, open to anyone to be inspired by his architecture.
