Dubai Hills Villa
ANARCHITECT recently completed a 3,000 sqm high-end private villa interior and architectural modification in Dubai Hills for a client and his young family relocating from Geneva.
For ANARCHITECT this residence re-defines Modernist luxury with superlative stone, wood, and metalwork detailing and bespoke joinery to create a light-filled home. The refined yet calming spaces are seamlessly connected to the exterior and inner courtyard with vast views over the 18th hole of the golf course and the famous Dubai skyline beyond.
Private Beachfront Villa
ANARCHITECT was appointed by a VIP Private Client to design their family beachfront villa in the heart of an affluent neighborhood in central Kuwait. The Client is a globally traveled and avid collector of contemporary art which they wanted to display within the house and to enjoy each and every day.
The Villa’s accommodation, designed by ANARCHITEC is set over four levels. The passively designed property responds to the solar aspects and draws in natural North light deep into the spaces and provides key overhangs to the East and West to limit mid-morning and mid-afternoon sunlight. The villa is carefully curated to allow working areas and home office, entertaining areas, and more private family areas all layered together but never compromising privacy or sanctuary. The interiors take inspiration from the Brazilian modernist movement with rich timbers, stone, and light, soft tones to evoke a relaxed beach context that allows the family to relax and feel comfortable within their home.
Baby Grand Belgravia Residence
ANARCHITECT was recently commissioned by a HNW Private Family Client to explore the amalgamation of two adjacent existing properties situated in London’s super-prime Belgravia into a single, contemporary new residence.
ANARCHITECT‘s Project brief was to create a unique residence for Belgravia and to maximize the property value for the family Client looking to develop the property for a future Sale. The proposed Private Residence includes a ‘Loft Style’ living, dining & kitchen area with a private roof terrace above. A master suite with two further bedrooms and a guest room with an assigned bathroom. On the entrance level, there is also a private study and the lower ground accommodates the Wellness spaces consisting of a Gym, Massage, Steam, Sauna, and Swimming Pool
ANARCHITECT‘s Team has secured numerous accolades, including one of the first RIBA certifications outside of the UK while remaining a boutique, family-owned, design-driven office.
