Dubai Hills Villa is a 3,000 sqm private property located in Dubai’s new eponymous upscale neighbourhood. Home to a successful young family recently relocated from Europe, it overlooks the eighteenth hole of the highly regarded golf-course with a spectacular backdrop of Dubai’s signature skyline.
ANARCHITECT applied modernist principles to create a family home in the practice’s signature style of refined spatial interventions, high-quality natural material palette and pristine detailing. The practice was appointed to re-plan and design a residence in which the family could grow, manage their busy lives and express individual passions for fashion, art, motorsports and upscale social gatherings.
One of the key challenges of the project was working with a predefined, stylised developer shell and modernising it by modifying and designing the space to draw in natural light, connect various property levels and turn a sprawling floor plate of the villa into a bespoke home which responds to the family’s needs. The result enhances the ‘togetherness’ of all the family members through clever spatial planning, considered way-finding for the youngest family members and addition of interconnected areas dedicated to specific family past-times and lifestyle activities.
