Villa AZ is a private residence designed by MMA Projects on the exclusive Palm Jumeirah, one of the three artificial islands built off the coast of the United Arab Emirates.
With a sophisticated and essential elegance, Villa AZ stands out for its simple lines with references to the Arab style. The exteriors have been cleaned of excessive decorations and redundant elements, opting for a few high-quality materials.
As a tribute to Arab culture and to be consistent with the context in which the villa stands, some elements in bronzed metal have been added. The delicate geometric designs of the panels that adorn the façade are reminiscent of the mashrabiyya, a natural forced ventilation mechanism typical of the architecture of Arab countries.
