Executive Loft Apartment in Business Bay, Dubai

The Loft apartment Project was completed in beginning of 2015 after about 6 months of construction. The overall concept and design features raise this exceptional project to award-winners level. A consequently implemented industrial concept is rarely found in residential projects as such.

The space concept and room arrangement derives from the angled axis of the mezzanine slab - pre-set by the existing structure of the apartment in Executive Towers. The design idea picked up this line and developed it further throughout the entire apartment: in the orientation of the partition walls, the new staircase, the balustrade, the raised floor of the grand lounge in the ground floor and even in the direction of the suspended track light system.

The requirements were to divide the open spaces into 3 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms, TV lounge, Dining area with open kitchen, grand lounge with a bar and servants quarters – all embedded in an industrial design style with modern features.

The big eye catcher of the loft is the re-designed staircase. The steps are covered by reclaimed light oak wood as the grand lounge flooring. The white silk matt balustrade with a recessed pattern dominates the space and continues until the ground level. Here it leaves the opening to the kitchen and breakfast counter. Its unique pattern could faintly remind one of rocks and gravel cracking from a mine or quarry.

Directing the view upwards along the big full height windows, the white painted industrial ceiling provides a plain background for the chrome air conditioning ducts, red glossy sprinkler pipes and black track lights with narrow spotlights. Small chippings and flaws were kept on purpose to add small detail touches.

Another highlight is the high wall at the grand lounge. The industrial theme continues with the 6 m high brick wall. Stripes of mahogany wood play along with the TV wall unit and a huge painting – flanked by a full height library with a stainless steel ladder.

The bedrooms have light oak wood floors and customised wardrobes with contemporary panels. Big double pocket doors and internal windows maintain the open atmosphere of a loft apartment and still provide privacy once closed. 

Cove lights and hidden light features bring indirect light options into the areas and offer various light moods.
