Mohammad Bin Rashid City District One- The design of the residential areas
The best part about this place will be the villas, because they will be designed using three different types of contemporary, Arabic and modern themes. It will feature around four to eight bedrooms, and a plan of more than eighteen floors. The design will offer sceneries of the fields, valleys along with woodlands. Other than that, these will be constructed and delivered in four phases.
“Minimalistic Approach of the Country Villas”
The contemporary villas will adopt an approach that will be minimal with lines that would be straight and would feature strip windows. All the designs will be made in such a way that they will provide serene, interactive and large spacious areas. The color theme of the visual palette would be organized using organic materials and different hues of the shades of grey in a bid so that they provide clear, and indistinctive backgrounds.
The Mediterranean will be a combination of the Mediterranean style and the architecture of Europe. All the wooden arches and columns will be decorated by the Motifs of the Mediterranean. All the villas will take care of all the particular things such as providing privacy, enough views of the back yards outside, and the exterior parts will be decorated using the modern and superior finishes of the stoned structures of the walls. Three themes will be used in the color palette. They will be the earth, the seas and the blooming side of the country.
The villas depict the contemporary architecture of the Arabs and they will also feature the designs of Arabia. Hence, they will be just like the modern villas of Arab designs. They will be made in such a way that they would give a sense of relaxation and pleasure. The villas will have two different entrances each. One entrance will be for the residents of the villa and the other would be for the guests to use. The family entrance of the villas will enter the rooms directly and the need to pass the guest area and halls will not be required. The color theme and palate has been inspired by nature. It has gold sand dunes and many different shades of beige from the tones of the woods.
