The Award Winning Private Penthouse K is situated atop Dubai’s Index Tower and is set over three-floors with uninterrupted views of Downtown Dubai and the Burj Khalifa. Dubai based Architecture Practice ANARCHITECT was given the freedom to create a sequence of spatial experiences that flow horizontally across each floor and interconnect vertically through use of material and meticulous detail within the staircase design.
The organisation of the residence was segregated into lifestyles of living, private quarters and leisure associated to each level as one ascends the property. Layouts were planned to create flexible spaces that are divided by sliding walls, pivoting frameless doors and bespoke joinery screening, an antithesis to traditionally articulating enclosed rooms that are isolated when not in use.
The timeless detail of the spaces and concise palette of stone includes a wide range of Salvatori stones and textures, including Pietra d’Avola Infinito and Bianco Carrara Lithoverde® to accentuate the geometry of the spaces, and Crema d’Orcia Bamboo for its ability to play with light and shadow. Along with timber and custom metalwork, the chosen materiality creates a calm and rich modern residence; a canvas upon which the Client effortlessly layers their personality.
