Located on a site of more than 32,000 sq m, Villamar contains three design elements: The Twisting Towers, the Floating Villas and the Terraced Podium. Scheduled for completion in June 2009, the development will comprise 494 one- to four-bedroom apartments, 54 villas and six penthouses.
Facilities include a rooftop chairman's club, health club and spa, swimming pools, tennis courts and other recreational amenities. A boardwalk will host cafes, restaurants and other leisure facilities at the waters edge.
'The three gently Twisting Towers are undoubtedly dramatic,' explains NORR Group design director Yahya Jan.
'They range in height from 47 floors to 57 floors, and are clad in blue-green tinted glass to reflect the natural colour of the seas off Bahrain. These towers face the sea and provide wonderful views.'
The villas are four-storeys above the ground within a self contained building at the perimetre of the project. Supported by their own elevator towers, these unique floating four- to five-bedroom villas feature double-height living spaces, balconies and terraces with superb views of the boardwalk and the sea.
The podium is a series of landscaped terraces dropping towards the sea featuring landscaped parks, pools and water walls. A health club and spa is located on the uppermost terrace providing unobstructed sea views. Parking for 1,800 cars is provided discreetly within the podium terraces.
The Boardwalk will be a major public attraction, featuring indoor and outdoor cafes, restaurants and boutique retail spaces. The experience of the boardwalk includes shaded and air-cooled walkways, dancing water features and landscaped plazas.
