Al Habtoor Penthouses
Location: Al Habtoor City, Dubai, UAE
Scope of work: Design of Simplex, Duplex and VIP penthouses
Surface: 120 000 sq. ft.
All the penthouses have large private balconies overlooking Dubai’s famous skyline, and the Arabian Gulf. This is enhanced by floor-to-ceiling windows which provide residents with incredible views of the city’s famous landmarks. The VIP penthouse takes luxury to a whole new level with an expansive leisure deck offering 360 degree views, a lap pools, personal gym and spa and 7 stylish bedrooms. It is like a palace in the sky.
“The intention is to sell these penthouses fully-fitted out – with all furniture and décor included – which is an unusual scenario, but one that can add value if done well,” says the Interior Architect, Zoe Allen. “The aim is to create a cosy, and bespoke interior, unlike that of a hotel. We want to ensure they are the best penthouses in the world.”
The colour palette consists of a soft, warm honey coloured oak timber, with wood grain marble on the floors, and either white veined or Armani grey marble wall cladding in key locations. The overall look and feel is modern, accented with a custom dark bronze metal used in detailing such as the skirting, doorways, arched ceiling coves and decorative screens.
