Canal Villa

Derived from the dhow boat building roots of Dubai, the architecture is conceived as a contemporary expression of nautical design, finely crafted and bespoke. Located on a narrow plot over-looking the canal, with views of the city and Burj Khalifa, the design is expressed as cantilevered floor plates, bronze and wood slabs lightly suspended over the water. Suspended cast glass fins ensure maximum natural light and privacy to the interior spaces.

The minimal garden space on ground level is supplemented on the upper levels, with local plants and trees acting as natural buffers to the exterior, balancing the purity of the architectural expression and creating a natural microclimate of planted slabs suspended over the water.
