Residential Apartment Over £1M Winner
IAIA - Idea Art Interior Architects
The Shadow Box
Dubai, United Arab Emirates
All project descriptions are provided by SBID Awards entrants.
The clients’ unconventional lifestyle led Idea Art Interior Architects (IAIA) to sit with them on endless discussions to guide the design and adhere to their primary needs. This penthouse was created for a young and sophisticated couple with their own understanding of aesthetics and design. Coupled with the clients’ desires, daylight was delicately directed into the space, creating different scenarios and ambiances.
The penthouse terrace has a panoramic view expanding from sea to shore, framing the skyline of Dubai. Having a long continuous façade, constantly exposed to sunlight all year long, the first reaction was to play and interact with the sun rays to create various moods and scenarios depending on the time of day. Metal panels with a brass finish slide along the glass allowing for a playful relationship with the sun. The custom pattern displayed on those panels was inspired by tree leaves overlapping and intersecting with each other.
