Hillside Residence Located in Ras Al Khaimah city in the breath- taking natural surroundings of the Emirate, the site presented a great opportunity to host a state of the art residential luxury villa. A private home with five bedrooms, main living rooms and service areas over-viewing Ras Al Khaimah City from the hill top surrounded by the mountains and the distant sea. The client wish to create a residence taking advantage of the views of untouched natural environment around it. The project site is surrounded by steep topography overlooking natural landscape of the region and the distant mountains, a stunning and picturesque view. Hence the form development takes into account the maximum utilization of this distant unobstructed view, with the volumes rotated so as to facilitate room from each of the living and bedroom spaces. The concept was envisioning the inner garden as an extension of the house to the nature and landscape outside. This was to ensure that every key public / semi-private function in the villa has close proximity or views to either the internal or exterior nature elements. The site of this private bungalow is the stuff of architect’s dreams. Our response is to design an environment that makes the very most of the incredible views afforded by the location, and provides the experience of living within the landscape.
