The Red Sea Development Company (TRSDC), the developer of the 28,000km2 The Red Sea Project, has appointed Dubai-based Killa Design, Architecture Firm of the Year at Construction Week Awards in 2020, to design overwater and inland villas on Sheybarah Island.
Designs of the overwater villas take inspiration from the natural environment, particularly the corals, which make up a circle effect, representing unity, integration and wholeness. These coral-inspired villas, emerging from the water’s surface, will be constructed with polished steel and will reflect the sea, the sky, and one of the most stunning parts of the project, the reef below.
The inland villas are inspired by sand dunes, with each villa being set apart to give guests a sense of privacy.
Sheybarah Island is the furthest from the mainland, located in the archipelago’s south-east in the Red Sea. It features a 30 to 40-metre reef drop-off in very close proximity from the beach, so will quickly become the ultimate diving spot. Sheybarah Island will undoubtedly attract a lot of attention.
