Dubai’s Latest Luxury Floating Homes Offer a New Level of Privacy

Dutch developer “>New Living on Water (NLW) has created a new luxury floating home set to be unveiled at Cityscape Global in Dubai. The concept home is based on an “organic” circular design and the current model being presented at Cityscape is slated to cost roughly $11 million.

If you can afford the hefty price tag, the company promises a spacious home that will offer luxury and privacy along with sustainability-focused features that align with nature. The current model house has roughly 16,000 square feet of internal space and 520 square feet of outdoor space and a unique design for a floating residence. NLW’s managing director and co-owner, Menno de Roos explained, “A lot of people nowadays live in very densely populated ­areas, and for most of them this is no problem in everyday life. But the need for some privacy and the inner need of being connected to nature has always been with us, and that’s what we’re offering. Our newly-developed floating residences guarantee both the privacy and nature that people are looking for, as well as the comfort of being part of a six-star super luxury beachfront resort.”

The home’s organic circular design features an open, large outdoor terrace along one side and a curved stainless steel roof on top of the unit, offering each level of the home impressive views. Although each unit is composed of three levels, NLW says the interior can be customized to each client’s needs. These residences are truly private with each home being linked to land by a car-jetty. Additionally, these homes are designed with sustainability in mind and likewise renewable energy sources were used as much as possible. One sustainability feature, for example, is the employment of a system that uses surface water to enable heating and cooling. The home’s developers also explain that the residence can be completely independent. From it’s own solar panels to sewage water purification systems, there are several alternatives ready to take the place of traditional on-land electricity and sanitation facilities – although it is still possible to connect the home to these on-land facilities.

Current plans call for the NLW $11 million model home to be unveiled at Cityscape Global in Dubai starting on September 6. The company expects their design in be successful and foresees regional sales worth $50 million over the first 12 months, with plans to at least double that in 2017-18.
