Now you can not only design your own private island, but you can move it from one location to the next. Baroque Lifestyle finds out all the facts
The famous real estate brand Christies International recently announced a very unique concept that they are selling to those who can afford it… We’re talking about self-sufficient, eco-friendly private islands tailor-made to each owner’s requirements. The first truly portable private islands in the world.
This unique residential project is the brainchild of Amillirah Private Islands, who offer customers the opportunity to design their own little self-sufficient residence on an island that can be located anywhere they wish it to be in the world. The company, Amillirah Private Islands is owned by Christies and its partner, the developer Dutch Docklands, offering exclusive and very unique residential properties that are the ultimate in luxury and customization. Of course, the Dutch are experts at creating artificial land, which is why this collaboration is such a good one.
Christies International Real Estate, which is based in New York, collaborated with famous Dutch architect Koen Olthuis, named by Time Magazine as one of the most influential people in the world, to create these dream islands, self-sustainable floating residential properties that are not only completely unique, but also free from any environmental impact. They’re safe from rising sea levels, too – and their creation will result in a whole new underwater environment for sea life.
Think about it. You can choose the size of your island, its shape, what you want it to look like, and the design of the residence that will be built – and then you can choose where you want to live, because it’s portable, so it can be located anywhere on earth.
Once you’ve chosen the corner of the world where you’d like to reside, everything is taken care of for you. This is personalized real estate on a completely different level. In addition, these private islands are the ultimate in luxury. They offer everything a customer could wish for, from exclusive privacy to the opportunity to get away from it all, and live in a dream location.
The vision for Amillarah was created by the founder of Dutch Docklands, Paul HTM van de Camp and architect Koen Olthuis. And now, with Christies doing the sales for this unique form of real estate, the concept of luxury floating islands has become a reality.
Of course, these self-sufficient luxury islands use the latest state-of-the-art green technology to ensure that they have virtually no environmental impact. They are also very stable on the water, built to last for more than a century, featuring a garden, pool and beach as well as an ultra-luxury residence.
The project has been received with open arms. Already, the Maldivian government has requested 10 islands, while there’s a collaboration in the works with Ogyana Real Estate in Kuwait, to create a series of floating residences at The World, a development in Dubai comprising 33 man-made islands that will be built in the shape of Australasia.
