Dubai is known for its lavishness but it looks like some of the architects in this famous city are looking to reinvent the very meaning of luxury by creating homes that look like they came straight out of a science fiction novel. The concept of floating homes is not exactly a new one, but it’s definitely impressive to see one of these amazing residences up close. A company named Kleindienst Group has spent 5,000 hours of research as well as 13,000 hours in order to design and build this impressive floating home.
One of the villas is a 4,000 square foot mansion spread over three levels and has four sleeping areas. But its stand-out feature, once complete, will be that it is submerged underwater and allows residents to view a magnificent coral garden from its windows.
Other notable elements to the home include an underwater master bedroom, entertainment room, and beautiful deck.
The Floating Seahorse Villas are part of an archipelago of islands called The World which is to be anchored 2.5 miles off the coast, close enough to offer views of the vibrant city. Six of these islands comprise the Heart of Europe project, which aims to create a luxury tourist resort inspired by popular European countries. The floating houses are also likely to be heavily customisable spaces that can be transformed from party palaces to serene getaways, depending on the owner’s demands and tastes.
The project is expected to be complete next year, but three of the initial floating homes have already sold.
