The Art Behind Muraba Residences
Located above the azure waters of the Arabian Gulf and in the exotic locality of Dubai – Muraba Residences is an exclusive sea-facing development located in the heart of the world’s largest man-made island: Palm Jumeirah. Unknown to many, Muraba Residences were exclusively designed by 2017 Pritzker Architecture Prize winning architects.
What is The Pritzker Architecture Prize?
The Pritzker Architecture Prize is an international award made to honour a living architect whose work demonstrates a combination of talent, vision and commitment. In addition, the work should also offer consistent and significant contributions to humanity and the environment through the art of architecture.
In 2017, Catalan architects Rafael Aranda, Carme Pigem and Ramon Vilalta, were awarded for their eclectic architectural projects in Europe and surrounding nations. Their firm, RCR Arquitectes, was established in 1988 with the ambition of producing quality architecture resulting from their contemporary expertise of over 30 years.
Muraba In The Making
Muraba Residences marks RCR Arquitectes first ever residential venture in a city known for its luxurious residential towers. The decision to select Dubai for their residential debut, as described by the Catalan architects, came with its own set of challenges and opportunities. Believing that a never-before-seen residential design had a far greater payoff than artistic restrictions, the architects began their journey in creating a residential masterpiece in the heart of Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah.
Executing the Design
The main motive behind Muraba Residences was to create a space from the inside out, keeping the resident in mind at all times. The Catalan architects wanted to utilize the sea-facing space to its full capacity.
“We were inspired from the beginning to design something totally unique. The building is aligned not only with its physical location, with the rising and the setting of the sun, but also with a certain kind of mindset; one that would be appreciative of a more sophisticated architectural philosophy, as well as keen attention to detail.” – Aranda
The art behind Muraba Residences is to create living spaces that extend beyond four walls – connecting residents to the natural environment. This was done through installing floor-to-ceiling windows, glass filters and spacious terraces. Light was also an essential component in bringing the design to life. By watching the light behave throughout the course of the day and its celestial appearance in every room, life was breathed into the design of the apartments. The power of the sea also paved way for connecting with the environment and offers residents luxury and comfort – time and time again.
Lastly, the architects wanted to allow the natural environment to cohabit with the building’s contemporary and luxurious architecture. To do this, Muraba Residence was installed with the finest travertine marble flooring, a state-of-the-art kitchen and opulent amenities to create the ultimate balance of serenity, nature and luxury.
