The renovation of a villa located on the palm of Dubai has allowed for reconstruction of both indoor and outdoor spaces. The renewal of the original structure of the building has been completed.
The main purpose of intervention on the outside of the building originated from the enlargement of the existing openings, through the construction of large glass walls, sliding and fixed lines which have the main objective of increasing the internal brightness of the house and at the same time to make the outdoor spaces more visible from the various rooms of the house.
The intervention has increased the internal brightness of the house and made the outdoor spaces more visible from the various rooms. The construction of large glass walls, the enlargement of existing openings and the addition of sliding lines have all contributed to this.
The facades have been considerably simplified and lightened and the decorative elements have been focused on stone/marble insertions aimed at emphasizing the most important architectural parts such as the entrance, the main windows and the bay window on the back. Even the balconies have been lightened with the addition of transparent glass balustrades instead of the current iron ones.
