Helal New Moon Residence: A Dubai Mega-Mansion










I know that I never do posts on contemporary/modern mansions, but this one is truly unbelievable. The 35,000 square foot mansion was designed by Culver City, CA based Ehrlich Architects. The home, dubbed the Helal New Moon Residence, is located in Dubai. The home has gorgeous marble floors, massive floor to ceiling windows, beautiful sculptures throughout, and extremely tall ceilings. This home is beyond compare! I wonder who the mystery client is? My guess is that its probably someone from the royal family.

    I really like contemporary/modern homes and this one is amazing. With how massive the space is you would think it was 60 or 70 thousand sq.ft. Great find.

    Contemporary homes are way more interesting than the more traditional type of home that most Americans seem to prefer.

    Nice to see a home on this site that doesn't have the obligatory dual staircase foyer, checkered marble floor, imitation pillars and tacky furnishings.

    While I prefer contemporary homes and this one is amazing, do not ever build or buy one.
    They always lose money and always sell for less money than an equivalent traditional home.
    Always.

    This home is fantastic, albeit a little like an airport terminal (look at those metal ceilings). I can see something like this being built in Miami. Those immense windows overlooking the ocean or the bay = spectacular party setting!

    However, If I were to build a contemporary home, I would probably get Guy Dreier (http://www.guydreierdesigns.com/interface.htm) to design it. His designs are contemporary, but in no way cold or warehouse like. Just look at the pictures of the Robb Report 2009 Home of the Year. Stunning!

    You are right, the Guy Dreier Robb Report 2009 Home is really great. If I could, I would also build a contemporary mansion. Though a lot of them are really cold.
    Thanks for the link to the Guy Dreier homes. I really love them.
