The Glass Tower which houses the head office of Maroc Telecom has been designed to reflect the expertise and know-how of the Morocco’s leading and long-standing telecommunications operator and to integrate technologies with improved energy efficiency and better performance.

The Parisian architecture studio Jean-Paul Viguier in collaboration with the architect Omar Kobbité has been selected, following an international competition, to design this 23-storey building housing a tower, an auditorium and the Telecommunications Museum.

Several factors were taken into consideration while erecting this imposing building: reduction of energy consumption, optimal water management, thermal and acoustic comfort, and safety.

The glass tower – built over 20 floors and served by 13 lifts – hosts office spaces, a show-room, a museum and a restaurant. The upper part cantilevers outwards up to 27 m and houses representation spaces.

The 2,500 sqm Auditorium, equipped with a retractable tiered seating, has a capacity for 600 people. It is configurable for banquets or cocktails. The set is designed as a garden leading to the tower, the auditorium and Telecommunications Museum.
