Saudi Arabia’s most ambitious project, all part of The Red Sea Development, has appointed Killa Design to design the overwater and inland villas on the project’s Sheybarah Island.
Expected to be completed in 2022, Killa Design led by Shaun Killa has drawn up a series of overwater and inland villas for one of the country’s most sustainable luxury tourism destinations.
“Our designs of the overwater villas are inspired by the natural surroundings, particularly the corals in their purest form, which make up the circle effect. The circle represents unity, integration, and wholeness, giving guests a sense of completion, confidence, and harmony. These coral-inspired villas emerging from the surface of the water will be made of polished steel that will reflect the water, the sky, and the best part of the project – the reef below,” according to the architects.
Furthest from the mainland, Sheybarah Island will feature a 30 to 40-metre reef drop-off in very close proximity to the beach.
The Red Sea Development, part of Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030, was first announced in July 2017 by Saudi Crown Prince HH Mohammed bin Salman, runs along 28,000 square kilometres in The Kingdom, and is expected to provide a significant boost to the country’s GDP upon completion (currently scheduled for 2022).
