Haptic are working on the conversion of a former Olive Oil factory and courtyard house in the medina of Fes el Bali, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Fes is believed to be one of the world's largest car-free urban areas, with its labyrinth of alleys and souks only accessible by foot. It is filled with more than 3000 traditional houses, many of which are undergoing significant restoration.
The project may comprise new hotel accommodation within the Massreiya, above the factory space, a restaurant and cookery school.
