Dubai, United Arab Emirates

    Usage: 45 apartments, Service and leisure facilities

    Property developer: Xtreme Vision

    Extremes are skilfully combined in Dubai: desert and water, horizontal and vertical. The Volante apartment tower enjoys one of the best locations right on the Dubai Water Canal, which connects Business Bay with the Persian Gulf. Thanks to full-height windows there is an uninterrupted view of life on the canal and the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa.

    45 superior apartments distributed over 35 floors – each with a terrace that can comfortably seat ten people. Generously-proportioned MasterCool refrigeration appliances from Miele provide sufficient space to chill everything to perfection, even for the largest of gatherings.

    The "Light Kitchen" opens onto the living area. The Zebrano cladding used on walls and furniture gives the kitchen a distinctive appearance. The built-in appliances blend into the geometric lines of the kitchen design – black handles on black appliance fronts create a discreet look.

    Italian travertine on the floor is combined with Jordanian limestone and delicate stucco on the walls. The living room extends seamlessly onto the terrace via full-height sliding windows.
