October 12, 2021

DSA Architects are proud to receive 5 stars in the Architecture Multiple Residence Abu Dhabi category at the Arabian Property Awards for Jawaher Al Saadiyat by Aldar Properties.

DSA were contracted by TDIC / Aldar Properties as the design architect and lead consultant to undertake multi-disciplinary design services for this prestigious residential development. It is located in an exclusive area of Saadiyat Island overlooking a golf course and consists of 83 high-end villas and townhouses with supporting community facilities including a gym, minimart, café, restaurant, salon, swimming pool, multi-use games area and an open parkland within a gated community.

The development has been designed to create a safe and vibrant community where the outdoor public parks/spaces and street character complement the individual residences. The exclusive six-bedroom villas and some five-bedroom villas have been placed to the north of the site where they have an uninterrupted view of the golf course. The bulk
of the development comprises four-bedroom villas which is the most popular format for growing families.

The architecture is contemporary with sleek lines and a mix of modern materials and textures. The planning of the villas and townhouses integrates both external and internal spaces seamlessly producing more user-friendly residences that reflect the modern lifestyle.

All villas have two kitchens: a show kitchen and a service kitchen with external access. They also include a lift shaft which can be fitted out by the owner in the future. All villas have staircase access to the roof, whilst the five and six-bedroom villas have two staircases. Numerous design features not only enhance the spaces but also create an atmosphere of comfort and relaxation.

Originally, I am from France but have spent many years living across the world, from Africa, The United States and most recently the Middle East.

Throughout my life I have always enjoyed an outdoor lifestyle and as you can see, I have travelled a lot. Having an active life is very important to me, whether that be through things like mountain biking and water sports or even camping at the weekend.

My education began at the School of Versailles in Paris. It was a great school to study at, but I also loved it because of its location. Paris is such a diverse city that is always evolving. If you accompany that with decades of stunning architecture, it really becomes and place like no other.

I have been interested in seeing things grow and develop since a very young age. As a girl I would build sandcastles and tree houses with my brother. Over time that interest developed further and by my teens I knew I wanted to be an architect.

For the last 5 years I have been with the DSA team and my role consists of managing projects from design to creation. As a Project Architect, I am positioned between the design team and the client. It’s a role that I love because it can be so varied from project to project.

Each client has their own particular requests, and it is critical that I understand them at an early stage.

Not only does this help ensure that all team members keep to what the client wants, but also it means that any design hurdles can resolved at a swift pace, avoiding lengthy delays.

When a project begins, inspiration for design is never too far away. From looking back at past successes and evolving those ideas further, to examining the surroundings of the project location. It’s fundamental to capture the vision of the client, taking multiple elements and combining them to create a strong identity.

Spending some quality family time with my husband and son is extremely important to me. When i’m not emersed in a project, I like to spend as much time with them as possible. I also have a great passion for cooking and maintaining a healthy diet. I am always researching new and exciting recipes.

However, the excitement for designing is always with me and currently I am designing a villa for my family and I in France during my spare time.
