10DESIGN unveils Dubai Residences: Seventh Heaven at Al-Barari, UAE


“After the commercial success with 98% of the Seventh Heaven units being sold out in the first 48 hours of the launch in February 2014, 10 DESIGN has been commissioned for the ongoing master plan of the remaining development,” said Chris Jones, Partner – Middle East, at 10 DESIGN.

The Seventh Heaven residences are being designed an d developed to create an eco- friendly and sustainable community ensuring preservation and longevity of natural resources. The project responds to the distinct climate of Dubai, and strives to elongate the comfortable conditions of the year through incorporation of the best environmental strategies.

The project incorporates 157 high-end luxury apartments, garden, and sky villas, all with exceptionally high internal living spaces, flooded with natural daylight, and closely connected with extensive private terraces or gardens. Residents will enjoy spectacular views of the lush botanic oasis of the Al Barari landscape, the tranquil wildernes s of the desert beyond, and Dubai’s iconic Skyline.

The masterplan is conceived as a community district punctuated by waterways and incorporates residential development, a boutique hotel, a retail village, gardens, and community facilities. Unique in the region, this haven of natural beauty forms the lush context for Seventh Heaven. The original vision behind this development is perceived through every aspect of the design from the vast naturally lit living spaces to the integration with soft landscape throughout.

The project responds to the distinct climate of Dubai and strives to lengthen the comfortable conditions of the year. The residences are positioned along an east-west axis, maximising southern exposure for even natural light, reducing lighting loads, avoiding g lare from the east and west, and framing desirable northern views. This orientation takes full advantage of t he predominant WNW midday breeze, balancing very high temperatures during the day.

The aim of the landscape design is three-folded: maximise outdoor comfort and vibrancy to promote seamless indoor and outdoor connection; fabricate intimate and memorable landscape experiences in complement to the unique architectural design; and create a green, rich , and lush environment that exemplifies the Al Barari philosophy.
