The undeveloped lots along Beach Road in Dubai’s Jumeirah Beach district offer an opportunity to nestle villas behind garden walls and help owners fulfill their dreams of a true 21st century home within a vast neighborhood of more traditional villas. However, with garden walls a normal entity, the “street appeal” of villas makes one look just like another. This is an opportunity for more conservative clients to build to their hearts’ desire. The Al Manara villa is a distinct example of modern architecture with a generous 10,000 GSF plan. The materials include ashlar patterned slate sliding, stain-less steel and broad expanses of glass to allow views and light to penetrate into the living areas of the villa.
