A++ and VX, together with nine other companies, are responsible for ensuring that residents enjoy seamless interactions with their surroundings, informed by meticulous research compiled by specialists in this field and taking into consideration that residents can spend up to 70% of their time indoors. The companies working on the project have employed state-of-the-art technology to craft interior kitchens, fitted furniture, and outdoor and indoor gardens that capture Dubai’s unique ambience. The Wellness Centre, the community’s external lighting and even the building materials used are all inspired by nature, reflecting the needs and aspirations of residents, and creating a project that will remain permanently renewable.
