Project Title


Stanford Pinto
Nestled in the heart of iconic Palm Jumeriah, Dubai, UAE, this magnificent six-bedroom home has elevated spaces that offer breathtaking views of Dubai skyline. The exterior of the villas is adorned with exquisite Italian travertine that continues seamlessly within. From the basement to the roof, every detail has been considered and thoughtfully designed. Cohesion has been achieved through colour scheme, materials used and architectural structure. Flooded in natural light, expansive spaces connect land to sea. As day moves into night, new spaces emerge to explore and enjoy. A continual and natural flow with the perfect indoor and outdoor living. The movement of light, and the casting of shadows through areas within and those outside enhance the experience. Clean lines adorn the interior as one walks through the grand seven meter door and enter the heart of the villa. From earth to sky, high rising panels and beams at the entrance enhance the space, drawing the eye above, as views of rippling moving water up high create jumping shadows below. Sweeping through the villa, the movement of lights and shadows take the eye across to the unending lagoon and pool views. The Japanese inspired Zen Garden and Koi pond provides the centre of tranquility, as the water and trickling fountain can be heard when passing by or whilst relaxing in the courtyard. Custom made art provides a pop of colour to the entrance and adds some vibrant contrast and offers views of the peaceful Zen Garden. Casting shadows as the light changes, nothing disrupts ones line of sight all around. From the exterior facade to the walls indoor, consistency is felt and the natural environment reflected. Custom wood and glass cast shadows along the walls and floors as modern-day Mashrabiya has been thoughtfully placed throughout the villa. A type of window with latticework originally used to allow a gentle breeze to cool spaces is now an architectural design showpiece. This age-old traditional form creates new visuals and projections as the light shifts and shines through the parametric design. Whether over the indoor pocket garden, the bespoke backlit headboards in the bedrooms or across the expansive bathrooms, the evolving geometry is the only constant. The primary bedroom, L-shaped in design, this glass space can be separated by a sliding smart glass ‘curtain’ ensuring privacy and allowing a true 360° view. Just below, on the first floor, four guest rooms are surrounded by natural vegetation from the pocket garden and flooded with natural light. Both sets of bedrooms are separated by the glass bridge and water feature which ensures moving shadows and light as the sun shifts throughout the day. Headboards made of travertine are backlit with either 3D panelling or Mashrabiya ensuring for crafted light in the room. Glass is prominent with two bedrooms directly opening up to the lush pocket garden from their bathrooms’ glass walls, however privacy is taken care of as an architectural mesh screen extends all the way up to the roof. The other two bedrooms offer idyllic views of The Palm and beach below with balconies to soak in the sun and take in the ocean air. A project that took two years to conceive – G17 is a true vision brought to life. With no constraints on design or interiors, Dr Shams Naga, Founder and Principal of NAGA Architects, had creative reign for this project. No detail left unturned, with every nuance overseen by Dr Naga, the villa is a true testament to firm’s work in the region.
