Danube Properties' Project Design Philosophy
Identity|September 2019
Delivering an apartment or a building is relatively easy; delivering a lifestyle is not.

Whilst delivering a luxury lifestyle on a budget could be extremely challenging, especially in a place like Dubai, Danube Properties has made this dream come true for consumers.

In fact, Danube has made affordable luxury a reality in all its projects, so much so that it has now become part of the developer’s eco-system – and that is why its properties are sold immediately after launch.

Although these represent business and economic aspects of Danube Properties’ real estate activities, the developer has put its architectural design philosophy in place to demonstrate affordable luxury to its best, to the point that the term ‘Affordable Luxury’ is no longer a slogan, but a reality.

Danube Properties has a standard philosophy when it comes to designing and building properties that buyers can call ‘home sweet home’. Every one of the 5344 properties in the 14 projects launched by Danube Properties so far embodies the same philosophy: what is the best we can do to make the home more spacious, cosy and user-friendly?

Danube Properties has so far delivered 1711 homes in six projects, including 171 townhouses – and one can see the same signature design everywhere. One of the key elements is the best use of space: be it in a studio, one-bedroom apartment, two-bedroom apartment or a townhouse, all are built with the same philosophy.

The strength of Danube Properties’ architectural design can be seen in the Resortz project. Aptly named, it is designed to look and feel like a five-star resort.

Breaking from the norms of standard architecture, Resortz recalls the neoclassical era in its purest form; a style principally derived from the architecture of classical antiquity and Vitruvian principles.

The architecture of Resortz places focus on the wall by following a two-tone colour concept and maintaining a separate identity for each of its parts. Spread over four acres of land, Resortz spreads over three blocks, offering studios, one-, two and three-bedroom apartments and retail units, with 34 percent of the plot area used for beautiful landscaping.
