introducing ‘Keturah’ bio-living Reserve in Dubai

 

Keturah Reserve is an innovative new luxury residential project in Mohammed Bin Rashid City, Dubai that immerses occupants in nature through the principles of bio-living. Designed by Taiwan-born, South Africa-raised architect Charlie Wu, the development is the first of its kind in the Middle East and consists of several townhouses, villas, apartment blocks, as well as public parks and activity zones surrounded by lush nature. The result is a reserve that combines interior design, architecture and landscape, while respecting the surrounding ecosystem and placing the emotional, physical and spiritual balance of the residents at the heart of the project. The AED 3 billion (US$ 817 million) project is scheduled for completion in Q2 2025.

DESIGNED FROM THE INSIDE OUT

 

The Keturah Reserve (find more here) is designed from the inside out, utilizing the golden ratio to create harmony in space. Both the interiors and architecture are crafted from the same raw materials and colors to blend the architecture with the surrounding desert landscape subtly. Travertine, wood, and bronze connect the interior to the exterior. The understated color palette of bleached bone, champagne, and bronze brings the natural landscape inside the home. Lush nature is visible from all sides, including olive trees, palm trees, green walls, balcony plants, and roof gardens.

 

The residential units are designed with double-volume interiors that increase the flow and circulation of naturally cooled air. Open spaces without corridors and hallways optimize transit. Furniture and fixtures are individually designed and manufactured for each space. They fit perfectly into the interior, freeing the flow of movement and increasing the physical and mental well-being of residents. The homes are oriented to capture and optimize natural daylight, diffusing it gently into the interior without heat or glare. As daylight fades, architectural lighting optimizes the body’s circadian system, improving mood, well-being, and alertness, and enhancing sleep quality, while creating a subtle and healing atmosphere in the home.

The Keturah Reserve is designed to create a thriving and harmonious community with common areas such as the park, outdoor pool, men’s and women’s gyms, and spas. The facilities are easily accessible on foot via cool, tree-shaded paths. Like the architecture, activities such as the Pilates studio, WaterBike pool, Silk Rope classes, rooftop meditation and yoga space are designed to develop and strengthen the body’s core from the inside out.

 

The Kids’ Zone is designed for mindful, educational play activities tailored to all ages, from babies to toddlers, preschoolers to school-age children, pre-teens to teens. Facilities include a nursery, educational daycare and summer camps, Montessori classes, a music and dance academy, a wading pool and outdoor play areas, a children’s spa, an organic living farm, a fitness room and an activity center.
