Following the launch of the Floating Seahorse villas, which were unveiled in 2015, developers Kleindeienst has revealed a new version that is inspired by Emirati culture and lifestyle.
Set in Dubai’s Heart of Europe development, The Signature Edition is aimed at bigger families, with a design that fuses local elements with contemporary European style.
The underwater villas offer flexible living, accommodating up to eight adults and eight children, enabled to adapt to various needs and sizes. Each unit can be customised to ensure privacy by fully enclosing the outdoor areas on the sea and upper levels.
When not enclosed, the outdoor areas can be used for alfresco entertaining all-year round due to the introduction of a new climate controlled innovation used across the villas.
The underwater ‘houses’ span up to 4,004sqf across three levels, and will feature “special features, state-of-the-art- technology and smart home automation”, according to a release.
The Signature Edition Floating Seahorse combines eight rooms, including a Sky Majlis and Sky bedroom on the upper level and a Sea family room and Sea bedroom on the sea level. The level that is fully submerged in water houses an Underwater ladies room and master bedroom as well as a Coral entertainment room and a Coral guest bedroom.
Featuring two completely submerged en-suite underwater bedrooms, the underwater level will offer views to the surrounding coral garden and marine life from the master bedroom. The living areas in the underwater level will span up to 861sqft, with the coral garden exceeding 600sqft.
The Signature Edition also allows owners to personalise the space to their liking, from finishes to flooring, as well as kitchen and bathroom designs. Additionally, owners can also alter the overall interior design and soft-furnishings, aided by Kleindienst’s team of interior designers and architects.
The villas are designed, engineered and built in the UAE, with 40 Signature Editions already in production with an estimated completion date set for October 2016.
