Japanese architect Tadao Ando has unveiled plans for Armani Beach Residences at Palm Jumeirah, a luxury residential complex on the oceanfront in Dubai. 

Designed in collaboration with Sharjah developer Arada and luxury company. The Armani Group, the 8,361-square-metre building will host 53 homes. Pritzker Architecture Prize-winning architect Ando’s proposal features a glass and concrete facade, punctured by a semicircular opening. It will also be lined with curved terraces that overlook a ground-floor pool and adjacent private beach. It is set to be complete by the end of 2026.

The proposal will host 53 luxury residences overlooking a private beach Armani Beach Residences at Palm Jumeirah will include homes ranging from two to five bedrooms, along with penthouses and two presidential suites. To help establish a connection with the ocean, all of the homes will include large glazed areas offering expansive outward views.

Residents will have access to a spa, multi-purpose function room, cigar lounge, movie theatre and children’s playroom, along with a landscaped deck area.”The architecture at this wonderful location is designed to pursue a visual and experiential continuity between the interior and the seascape that surrounds the project, with the interplay of light and shadow helping to create a dynamic sequence from arrival through to the public areas and finally to each impeccable residence,” said Ando.

The interiors will be designed by The Armani Group, which will allow residents to choose between a dark or light interior palette for their home.The facade will be punctured by a semicircular opening Ando said the project marks the continuation of his long-term collaboration with luxury fashion house Armani, which began in 2001 with his design for the Armani headquarters, Teatro Armani, in Milan.

“I am proud to renew our longstanding partnership with Giorgio Armani to deliver a project that brings nature and architecture together, producing a spectacular space in which to live,” Ando said. According to the vice chairman of Arada Khaled bin Alwaleed Al Saud, the proposal will aim to present “a new standard for the high-end Dubai real estate market”. Other upcoming projects in Dubai include Mercedes-Benz’s first branded residential skyscraper and a sweeping vertiport terminal for “air taxi services”. The images are courtesy of Arada.
