UAE has become synonymous with luxury living and is a fairy tale oasis where you can experience true architectural masterpieces that are fascinating to the entire world.

Keeping up with the trend, Baharash Architecture, a London-based design studio, has designed a luxury desert eco-retreat. This gorgeous building is located in the southern region of the United Arab Emirates.

This Snowflake-Shaped Structure is Fully Solar-Powered and Has a Host of Features

Solar panels on the roof of this incredible home are capable of generating clean power to meet the requirements of this retreat. The excess energy generated is stored in the home’s batteries.

The unique multi-winged layout is separated into zones for privacy and offer unhindered views of the surrounding landscape. The center of the winged structure ties all the zones together and has a round fireplace that serves as a gathering place.

The home has a full kitchen, living room, two bedrooms, and two bathrooms. The spacious kitchen has an indoor herb garden. Large retractable windows offer views of the dramatic landscape and allow for cool breezes inside the rooms. Each zone has a different view to offer.

This sprawling one-level green retreat blends perfectly with its surroundings. The winged design of this environmentally-friendly structure has helped with efficient construction, with each wing of the home prefabricated and assembled onsite from insulated concrete panels.
