Palm Jumeirah Villa by SAOTA sets a new sales record

The SAOTA designed Palm Jumeirah villa that sold for $82 million (R1.47 billion) is now the most expensive house ever sold in Dubai, Bloomberg reported.

Known as Casa Del Sole, the villa is located on Frond G of the Palm Jumeirah, Dubai’s man-made island that’s shaped like a palm tree. The Palm Jumeirah is home to multimillion-dollar mansions as well as some of Dubai’s top luxury resorts, including St. Regis and Waldorf Astoria.

The 17,000 Sq. Ft. home with 18 bathrooms and a 15-car garage, together with amenities such as a bowling alley and home theatre is still under construction, with an expected completion date of early 2023. Cape Town based design studio SAOTA has a global footprint, working on projects in 86 countries on six continents and has designed luxury residential, commercial and hospitality projects.

With reference to South African Modernism, and a grounding in the international style, SAOTA’s projects take advantage of wildly beautiful settings and are rooted in place by the relationship between the building and its site.

For Casa Del Sole, SAOTA intentionally departed from the typical contemporary style of the Palm and pursued a concept that was more sculptural. The design draws inspiration from the shifting desert landscape, creating an eroded striated architectural mass.

Where the exterior is elemental stacking of cubic forms with a limited palette of stone cladding and bronze inlays, the interiors were envisioned to be embellished, creating a “geode” like experience. Source by SAOTA
