Why a home at Sea Mirror is your ultimate city residence
Dubai is a city renowned for its innovative architecture. Ground-breaking projects such as the twisting helix of Cayan Tower and the record-setting Burj Khalifa, 163 floors stretching up over half a mile into the city sky, pushed the needle for bravado and engineering excellence. It’s a catalogue of visionary design that developers Lamar are now extending to masterful villas at Sea Mirror, luxurious living in the ultimate city residence.
Sea Mirror marks a new pinnacle of cutting-edge style, a total of just 18 architectural masterpieces on private Jumeira Bay Island that will comprise Dubai’s most exclusive waterfront community. As the only private developer on Jumeira Bay Island and with the Bvlgari Resort and Marina as a near neighbour, Lamar have acquired a stellar location, minutes from Jumeirah Beach and Downtown Dubai yet with the ultimate privacy and security of a gated island.
The residences are the work of architects Studio MK27 and Jacobsen Arquitetura and designer Patricia Urquiola from Studio Urquiola, all award-winning firms with a supreme international pedigree. The sustainable designs and ultra-high-end finishes introduce a new standard of contemporary living in Dubai, aimed squarely at a wealthy and most demanding global audience.
“Dubai has become synonymous with ultra-high-end living and because of its business environment, safety, ease of doing business and its incredible lifestyle, the city continues to attract the most affluent individuals from around the world,” says a representative of Lamar. “However in Dubai, while demand continues to be robust for properties at the higher end of the market, there are only a handful of residential projects that would fit into the ultra-high end category. The supply-demand formula isn’t balanced and this is why we see prices soaring in this segment of the market. Sales of homes valued over AED 10 million registered another strong month this August, a 20.5% increase on transactions in July.”
Sea Mirror introduces the highest echelon of international style and quality to Dubai. These are landmark homes, with the space and quality that affluent buyers expect and combining outstanding architecture, design and location. “Marrying these three aspects of ultra-high end living and delivering it on the most exclusive island in the city, along with 22 metres of private waterfront for each home and access to Dubai’s only offshore private deck and dock is what makes Sea Mirror so wonderfully unique,” says a representative of Lamar. “It is simply one of the most exclusive developments the city will see.”
Residences at Sea Mirror feature expansive entertaining spaces, five bedroom suites and wine cellar, cigar rooms, home cinemas and full service spa facilities.
Patricia Urquiola describes her goal with the interior design as providing a “personal oasis of tranquillity at the core of an international metropole”. For her, convivial space, somewhere to come together with friends, family or business colleagues, is key and her bespoke furniture choices reflect this. She emphasises the tropical inspiration of the architecture, harmonising the seamless indoor-outdoor flow to create a minimalist barefoot luxury where nature is the inspirational keynote and where dazzling views over the Arabian Gulf and the majestic Dubai skyline are carefully framed.
Outside, along with the private waterfront access, every home has artfully landscaped gardens and terraces, secluded swimming pools, extensive staff accommodation and underground garaging for four cars. Homes are fully automated and fully serviced with a round-the-clock concierge and packages are available for all routine maintenance, landscaping and housekeeping. The aim is to provide hassle-free homes where owners can focus on enjoying their immediate environment and the wider Dubai lifestyle.
That includes exclusive membership of the neighbouring Bvlgari Hotel, Marina & Yacht Club, a 46-berth harbour on the Arabian Gulf. Taken together, it’s a compelling offering.
“Residents at Sea Mirror will find every aspect of life appealing,” says a representative of Lamar.
“It has the answer to every question targeted towards ultra-high end living.”
