London, 22 September, 2015: Barr Al Jissah, the exceptional luxury destination in Oman, is excited to announce an exclusive partnership with award-winning superyacht designers Bannenberg & Rowell. Bringing “yacht living” to Barr Al Jissah, Bannenberg& Rowell will draw inspiration from the destination’s spectacular ocean setting to create cutting-edge interiors for the limited edition town homes- the world’s first limited edition town homes designed by Bannenberg & Rowell.
The internationally acclaimed designers Bannenberg & Rowell are one the most famous names in yacht design and are responsible for some of the world’s most iconic superyacht interiors. They will bring their extensive experience in contemporary yachting design to the interiors of the limited edition town homes.
Dickie Bannenberg of Bannenberg & Rowell commented, “We are incredibly excited to be involved with this project, spear-heading the emerging trend of yacht designers moving to land-based developments. With its breath-taking location and story, the synergy between the sea and the lifestyle at Barr Al Jissah is clear, and it is our job to weave in elements of the yachting lifestyle and design iconography into the homes to evoke a sense of “yacht living” and the idea of space, privacy and glamour.”
The four bedroom, five bathroom town homes, located on the hillside above Barr Al Jissah, will offer uninterrupted views across the Gulf of Oman and feature luxurious details more typically associated with superyachts; with the aim to bring the stunning natural surroundings inside whilst evoking a sense of place and Omani authenticity. Residents can also benefit from lifestyle amenities provided by the Shangri-La hotel located within the destination, as well as enjoy luxury concierge and transportation services and marina facilities.
Firas Matraji, CEO of Barr Al Jissah has said, “We are thrilled to welcome Bannenberg & Rowell on board for this project. It is incredibly important for us to stay true to our historical heritage and geographical location, and this partnership allows us to do this while at the same time creating something truly outstanding and unique for our buyers from all over the world.”
The limited edition town homes by Bannenberg & Rowell will launch to market later this year bringing a new standard of luxury yacht living to Barr Al Jissah.
