With 43,000 sq ft of extravagance, The Penthouse is housed over three floors on the top of 23 Marina, a supertall luxury residential skyscraper and one of the tallest residential buildings in the Middle East. The glass-walled residence offers an unmatched luxury of living in the clouds with a 360-degree view of Dubai.
The property has won multiple awards for its stunning interiors, inspired by Belgian surrealist Rene Magritte, and poetically erases the barriers between reality and dreams.
