Sculptural Splendour: Living in a work of art

Introducing Sea Mirror where visionary architecture and cutting-edge design introduces a new level of luxury and style to Dubai

Sea Mirror, an inaugural residential project by developers Lamar, sets a new gold standard for international quality and sophistication in Dubai. The elite residences are the work of three globally renowned architectural and design companies, and along with the secure private island location and outstanding facilities ensure that residents will enjoy the most exclusive homes ever offered in the Emirate.

The architecture and design of the substantial beachfront villas celebrate the idyllic setting, skilfully merging indoor-outdoor living, adding tropical, barefoot luxury and artfully framing magnificent sea and city views. The homes are the vision of Studio MK27 and Jacobsen Arquitetura, award-laden firms who between them have completed illustrious projects across South America, Europe, Fiji and the Indian Ocean. Their sculptural architecture is complemented by interior design from Studio Urquiola whose co-founder, Patricia Urquiola is considered one of the most influential designers of the 21st Century.

As the first residential project in Dubai for all three firms, Sea Mirror presents a unique opportunity to own an iconic property with a signature design that commands global recognition. The select collection of high-spec homes – just six in the first phase - have a carefully considered contemporary design aesthetic. These are homes that serve both as personal retreats and lavish entertaining spaces, outstanding homes to live in and admire that can be considered their own work of art.

“Just as with art, architecture should touch you,” says Renata Furlanetto, Architecture Director at Studio MK27 and co-author of Sea Mirror project. “These villas enhance resident’s experience by creating subtle atmospheres embraced by tactile textures and natural light. Sea Mirror’s architecture brings a contemporary approach incorporating both Brazilian and Arabic culture, sharp lines and rich textures evoking a discreet elegance.”

Minimalist glass windows and perforated sculptural panels frame the views and filter the light, so that all eyes are on the water and Dubai’s dramatic skyline. It’s “a cinematic experience”, for residents says Ms Furlanetto, a “multi-sensory ambience bathed in natural light and flowing air”.

For Patricia Urquiola from Studio Urquiola, creating a seamless link with this architecture was critical. She used natural materials and colours, travertine and green aver marble, wood and leather with sandy tones and light blues to best reflect the wondrous natural setting. Creating a visual work of beauty is not enough however. The internal experience – living in the villa - must match the external splendour, making a home that is practical as it is beautiful and this is where Ms Urquiola excels.

“The villa is not a work of art for me but rather a place of residency, somewhere functional and comfortable,” she says. “It is a house designed for the international community of Dubai. Residents will live in the core of an international metropole while still being able to enjoy their personal oasis of tranquillity. It’s a residency that tells of design and refinement. I am sure the beautiful view to the sea will amaze them afresh every morning.”

The location offers residents the best of both worlds, a secluded home with the very best of vibrant Dubai on the doorstep. Sea Mirror is on Jumeira Bay Island, a private island destined to become Dubai’s most privileged address. Shaped like a sea horse and covering 6 million square feet, the island lies directly off Jumeirah Beach Road, central yet totally secure and tranquil. From the villas, the views over the Arabian Gulf and back towards the city’s epic skyline are some of the most magnificent in Dubai.

These five-bedroom residences include home cinemas, swimming pools, spa areas and extensive staff quarters. Each home has 22 metres of private waterfront and access to Dubai’s only offshore private deck and dock. Along with the A-Grade address and exquisite design, Sea Mirror offers enveloping luxury, an elevated lifestyle in one of the world’s most dynamic cities. Welcome to life in your very own magnificent work of art.
