World Islands in Dubai
The World Islands are a collection of man-made islands shaped into the continents of the world, located 4km off the coast of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.
Construction of the World Islands began in September of 2003. Requiring 321 million cubic meters of sand—about the volume of 150 Major League Baseball stadiums—the World Islands cost over $14 billion to build.
Floating Seahorse House.
Designed, engineered and developed by the Kleindienst Group, these amazing homes will be produced in a limited run of just 42 units.
These homes have three levels:
- Level 1 is underwater and is made up of bedroom and bathroom
- Level 2 is at sea level and is the living & dining areas and kitchen
- Level 3 has uninterrupted views of the ocean and islands around
The structure is made of two parts. Underwater and above water. The underwater section is a concrete box with two acrylic panels, one on each side, that give stunning views to the ocean coral life below the surface. The upper deck has a glass bottom jacuzzi that looks down onto the living area. The whole of the upper deck can be screened off from the elements and used as another sleeping area if required.
Also designed, engineered and developed by the Kleindienst Group. There will only be 10 of these incredible mansions built and will be situated on Sweden Island.
These homes have everything you can wish for and more, even a “snow room”. Yes a “snow room”. You can also have custom furniture made exclusively by Bentley.
The roof of these palatial homes is made to resemble an upside down Viking ship. These rooves are made of glass so you get uninterrupted views of the ocean from your entertainment desk. This house is situated across many floors and even has an internal lift. Outdoors is a rim flow pool that blends seamlessly with the ocean.
The house and property is self sustainable with an underground irrigation system that waters the forest and plants surrounding the beach palace.
