Set in the prestigious residential area of Dubai in Jumeirah, Umm Suqeim, this villa will serve as the main residence to a young and dynamic family. This ground level villa is functionally divided into 4 main areas – formal reception rooms, private family quarters, guest and entertainment areas and service and staff quarters. The “U” shaped building offers a private inner garden with cascading stone decks and reflection pools leading into a full scale infinity lap pool at the south boundary of the plot. The inner courtyard façade is fully glazed allowing unobstructed views of the garden and allowing ample daylight into the inner spaces.
The generously overhanging canopy is keeping the harsh Dubai sun away from the glazed walls thus minimizing heat gains during the hottest hours of the day. The main double height volume of the villa with clear ceiling height of almost five meters is housing the main representative spaces like the living and dining rooms and opens fully towards the sun deck in front with a sunken fire pit. The building is clad inside and out with natural Italian travertine giving the spaces it’s warm feel and look.
