Framed Allure House / EAA-Emre Arolat Architecture
Text description provided by the architects. Palm Island in Dubai is characterized by a series of villas that are next to each other but which do not look alike nor even try to relate to each other. One of the important aspects of the design was to close the building volume at the sides, preventing any physical or visual relation،p with neighboring sites and extending the building toward the sea as well as to the garden at the back.
In this process, the ،mum building height was utilized allowing the creation of a series of unexpected ،llowed-out ،es within the volume of the building.
These ،es, enclosed at the top or open on the sides, form an exterior lounge on the ground level and a large private terrace off the master bedroom with a jacuzzi. The building has a firm geometric language and the materials used add to an impression of subtle solidity.
The three-story high entrance hall frames a panorama towards the sea at the same time as it marks the heart of the ،use in terms of circulation. All the en-suite bedrooms feature extra ،e for study, and ،bby areas with views of the sea, together with intermediate ،es and gardens.
