Dubai Architectural Trends: Luxury Living on the Water

Spectacular architecture, daring designs and unique living conditions – Dubai is a boomtown and a city of superlatives. The new and innovative floating villas real estate project in the metropolis on the Arabian Gulf, too, is setting new standards in the luxury real estate market. We will show you how the floating villas gracefully combine an unparalleled luxury lifestyle, breathtaking architecture and precious nature conservation. 

The luxury residential project “The Floating Seahorse” was first unveiled in March 2016 by the developer, The Kleindienst Group, at the Dubai International Boat Show. In Dubai’s architectural ensemble, most of these luxury apartments on the water will function as nautical landmarks of St Petersburg Island. Once complete, St Petersburg Island with its white sandy beaches, flat lagoons, tropical gardens and exclusive bars and restaurants will be an ideal luxury holiday retreat.

“Dubai is a very dynamic city, which never stops surprising us with astonishing innovations”, reports real estate consultant Eugeniya Chebotareva from Engel & Völkers Dubai. Specialising in the brokerage of high quality real estate in the United Arab Emirates, the Market Center Engel & Völkers Dubai is already marketing two of the “Floating Seahorses”. “I am thrilled and honoured to represent this unique project”, Chebotareva continues. 

The layout of the unique villas is simple, but full of highlights with luxury and comfort on 288m². Luxuriously and comfortably furnished, the lower deck, middle deck and upper deck meet all the demands of a modern and special lifestyle. Particularly noteworthy are the large sun deck in the outside area, the jacuzzi on the upper deck and the large panorama window on the lower deck with views of the corals and the impressive underwater world.

Finest living conditions 

The middle deck impresses with its open and compact design and contains a living room, a dining area, a fully equipped kitchen and bathroom as well as an exterior sun deck. Each villa is also fitted with state-of-the-art technology. Lighting, heating and air con can be controlled centrally by the click of a button, satellite TV and high-speed internet are also available. A butler and room service ensure the highest level of comfort.

Nature conservation up close 

The lower deck is fitted with large floor-to-ceiling panorama windows with breathtaking views. From the bedroom and bathroom, which has a freestanding bathtub, one can admire the corals and marine life. The developer, The Kleindienst Group, is planning a unique nature project for the future: artificial coral reefs will be placed around the luxury villas, providing a new habitat for endangered seahorse species.

According to developer Josef Kleindienst, the “Floating Seahorses” are not limited to Dubai waters, but can in future also be designed and built in other regions of the world. 

A potential for more: the combination of innovative interior design and unique architecture in an aquatic context could turn the “Floating Seahorses” into a worldwide lifestyle trend. “The project’s chances of success are very good indeed. The “Floating Seahorses” concept has awakened the interest of many investors around the world”, real estate consultant Eugeniya Chebotareva from Engels & Völkers Dubai reveals.
