Penthouses are revered the world over as the ultimate in luxury city living and nothing says opulent living more than a penthouse in Dubai. Historically only reserved for the top floor of apartment buildings which would be designed and decorated to the highest standard, XtremeVision have achieved the impossible and designed a residential building with not just one or two, but 45 penthouse suites.
The exceptional apartments overlooking the Dubai Water Canal and the Burj Khalifa, have been built on the canal banks which have become a thriving new district full of five-star hotels, restaurants, shops and entertainment. Spanning 35 floors, the Volante apartments are either full floor or half floor spaces which give them their hallowed penthouse status. Each penthouse boasts the highest levels of craftsmanship and five-star amenities which despite their location in one of the most decadent areas in the world, offer a whole new level of luxury living.
Volante marks Dubai-based XtremeVision’s second property in their already award winning portfolio following on from the Le Rêve development at the Dubai Marina. The firm’s in-house architects have thoughtfully designed the structure to serve the needs of discerning residents from around the world along with ensuring it blends seamlessly with its opulent surroundings. The interior design has been completed by Italian designer Mauro Lipparini and his atelier who have created an exceptional scheme for the penthouses.
Inspired by the defining elements of Italian minimalism, the beautifully proportioned interiors fuse organic textures, bold colors and imaginative visual concepts to form a timeless yet impressive design. The generous living spaces are flooded with natural light through the floor to ceiling windows which adds to the effect of the interior design. The full floor apartments are the ultimate in luxury living with five bedrooms across 10,000sqft of space and a 640sqft terrace. No less impressive in design, the half floor apartments boast two bedrooms across 5,000sqft and a 300sqft terrace to soak up the Dubai sunshine.
Every apartment is fitted with two kitchens which is quickly becoming a key trend for luxury living. The design includes a light kitchen in the main living area, with a wet/heavy duty kitchen in the rear for larger cooking tasks and cleaning. Each bedroom includes en suite bathrooms, and the master bedrooms have been created as grown-up retreats with their own living areas and two dedicated dressing rooms. The main living spaces of both types of apartment have been designed with entertaining in mind, with ample formal and informal seating areas both inside and on the expansive terraces.
Penthouses of this size naturally lead to a certain amount of upkeep, so the final finishing touch to each apartment is additional staff quarters and service areas. Here housekeepers or nannies can live comfortably with the family. Along with extensive private parking facilities, the Volante Club is also a key area of the development. The privately owned club is for the exclusive enjoyment of Volante residents and their guests and includes The Spa fitted with treatments rooms, sauna, steam room and gym and The Lounge with its coffee bar, cinema and dining areas.
Last but certainly not least is The Garden which includes expertly manicured gardens, a 25 metre infinity pool, relaxation area, sunken fire pit, external catering facilities and a herb garden.
