The floating villas were designed to be anchored near the Australia island in the man-made “World Islands” in Dubai. A series of 12-unit single residence luxury villas would be tethered to triangular mooring stations with boat slips to form a floating village. The units may only be accessed via boat from the Dubai shoreline. Each villa was designed to be as self-sufficient as possible with its own desalination unit and composting unit. Electric power would be provided by an underwater electric cable from the mainland, plus a diesel-powered emergency electric generator.
