Does über-chic living with smart layouts, Silk Road-inspired interiors and a view of the Burj Khalifa with acres of lush gardens sound tempting? Then the sheer joy of apartment living at Dubai-based design-led boutique residential developer Ellington’s Wilton Terraces II is sure to appeal. The community was launched recently on the back of huge demand for homes at its earlier twin tower project, Wilton Terraces I.
The apartments at this newly launched 12-storey twin towers are practical and modern family homes that beckon with free-flowing spaces and large windows, letting natural sunlight flood all the rooms. A typical residence at Wilton Terraces II features a family living and dining area, bedrooms designed for high functionality, an efficiently designed kitchen and spacious bathrooms with floor-to-ceiling mirrors, offering a refined, contemporary space that any family will be delighted to call home.
Located in Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum City, off Al Khail Road, and just three kilometres away from Burj Khalifa and Downtown Dubai, Wilton Terraces II features 283 one- and two-bedroom residences ranging from 806 to 838 sq ft for one bedroom and from 1222 to 1235 sq ft for two. Every apartment overlooks landscaped gardens and calming water bodies.
When it comes to interiors, understated elegance runs as a theme throughout the project, complemented by rich textures and bold patterns inspired by the Silk Road period. Designed with both young urban professionals and families in mind, the development integrates modern and classic design elements and creative space-saving solutions to develop the perfect setting that meets a family’s requirements as well as aesthetics.
“Expats in Dubai are aware of new trends in interior design and finishing standards,” says Laura Bielecki, Senior Manager – Interior Design at Ellington. “Our interiors for Wilton Terraces II are inspired by the trends in condos and towers in New York City, Los Angeles, Miami and London. Finding a contractor for small refurbishments in an apartment can be strenuous and expensive, so it’s great for owners to have a turnkey product that’s ready to move in with zero snags and full customer satisfaction.”
Contemporary, simple and clean lines, warm textures and clever furnishings dominate the design narrative of this development. Each apartment takes full advantage of natural light and uses neutral colour tones such as beige, white and grey, making every space appear open and airy. Fitted with separate laundry cabinets, built-in wardrobes and storage units for the bathrooms, Ellington knows how to maximise every square foot of an apartment.
“Space saving starts with an efficient floor plan,” explains Laura. “By minimising corridors and planning a unit based on an occupant’s storage and living needs, we created a great plan that can make up for small square footage.”
The lean kitchen layout at the Wilton Terraces II allows you to move freely and reach all areas of the room while cooking with ease. Furthermore, custom cabinets, a wide workspace and polished countertops, along with a state-of-the-art refrigerator and smart fixtures will make your time in the kitchen less chaotic.
Designed by the architecture and design firm Perkins+Wills, Ellington has taken an approach to finishes that provides a more tactile and cozy environment, points out Laura: “Wood-look porcelain floor tiles provide a warm and inviting palette, while being practical and low maintenance. We have used quartz for countertops and kitchen backsplashes, which are durable, warm in colour and easy to clean. All cabinets are laminated and of matte lacquer providing a unique palette for your home.”
The furniture of public areas, including the lobby, at Wilton Terraces II is also design-led, juxtaposing wood, fabric and leather upholstery with integrated power points for multipurpose use. “Toss cushions, accent carpets and multipurpose tables create a warm and inviting décor,” says Laura. “Our strategy is to make the public spaces an extension of your home. You will find here a library, and a few puzzles, games and magazines for you to use. Our lobbies by extension are not simply meant to walk through but rather to live in.”
The towers of Wilton Terraces II are interconnected by a single podium at the base, creating a unique exterior while enhancing community living. Other special features in this development are a luxurious recreational area, a swimming pool, children’s pool and plenty of greenery with a dedicated BBQ zone.
