- Location: Abu Dhabi
- Use: Residences
On a plot consisting of two sections, in one of the city’s most prestigious locations an exclusive residential area is being built for around 80 residences and the requisite amenities. An austere periphery encloses a development with a playful air about it, such that given the sequence of plazas, gardens and villas, a fascinating district emerges.
The basic residence consists of a two-story villa covering 160 m², with a patio. This surface area can be extended to up to 344 m². This is complemented by a patio with fountains, a lawn, and diversely staggered terraces. Emphasizing the vertical, the floor-to-ceiling windows contrast with the stone facade and the delicate pergolas in the gardens and terraces that provide shade.
