An Emirati-designed environmentally friendly villa concept is on show at the ongoing Cityscape Abu Dhabi, held at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre. Quantity surveying and architecture firm 3Dimension launched the energy-efficient Green Pre-designed Villa Concept at the three-day real estate event, targeting investors and end users looking for eco-friendly options in the property market.
Taking approximately eight months to build, the pre-designed turnkey villas come in three- and five-bedroom configurations. The 4,757-sq-ft three-bedroom option costs Dh2 million and the 8,446-sq-ft five-bedroom villa costs Dh3.3 million.
Malak Ali Hassan, owner and CEO of 3Dimension, designed the green villas. She said the project incorporates the latest Energy Star efficiency specifications and eco-conscious materials, with practical usage of natural light and ventilation.
“As both an engineer and an Emirati woman, I am proud to be the first to present the Green Pre-designed Villa Concept to investors and developers at Cityscape Abu Dhabi," said Hassan. "It has been our dream at 3Dimension to be part of the wheel of sustainable development in the UAE and the wider region.
"We planned the pre- designed green villas based on our objective to promote smarter water usage and to reduce energy consumption, while ensuring that only sustainable building materials are used with minimal impact on the environment. Our green villas are ergonomically feasible, environment friendly and socioeconomically viable."
Meanwhile, continuing the environmental theme at Cityscape Abu Dhabi, Masdar City, one of the world's most sustainable urban developments, is highlighting investment opportunities at the real estate event, expecting to attract major interest from investors in the residential, commercial and hospitality sectors.
The world-class eco-city will also underline its plans in the UAE capital and in the region.
Anthony Mallows, Director of Masdar City, said: "Masdar City is a pioneering ‘greenprint' for how cities of the future will accommodate rapid urbanisation, while dramatically reducing energy, water and waste.
"Today, the city is home to the world’s largest cluster of high-performance buildings, including the recently completed Leed Platinum-certified Siemens Middle East Headquarters and the Incubator building - home to more than 60 companies - with further milestones such as the Masdar and Irena headquarters and Hilton DoubleTree Hotel on the horizon."
