The Floating Seahorse

The Floating Seahorse, one of the most talked about luxury lifestyle products this year, is now under fabrication in the UAE. The first Floating Seahorse will be born on 15th December 2015 and the exciting countdown is now underway! The Floating Seahorse has been designed and engineered in Dubai and is currently being fabricated in the UAE. The first Floating Seahorse is less than 30 days away from completion. After months of undertaking research, tenders and due diligence, Kleindienst and The Heart of Europe have teamed up with key contractors and suppliers to fabricate the world’s first Floating Seahorse. Over 5,000 hours have been invested in research and development and more than 13,000 hours in design and engineering. Over 200 specialists and professionals from 25 different countries have been involved in the exciting Floating Seahorse project. Each Floating Seahorse will weigh 188 tonnes and feature 25m2 (269 sqft) of underwater glazing and a coral garden spanning 46m2 (495 sqft). The underwater level of The Floating Seahorse will be the idyllic environment in which seahorses can live and breed in their natural habitat in The Arabian Gulf. The Floating Seahorse is a marine style retreat (essentially a boat without propulsion) which has its own plot in the Arabian Gulf.  Just 4km from the coast of Dubai, each individual Floating Seahorse will boast three levels, one underwater, one at sea level and an upper deck.   The master bedroom and bathroom will be totally submerged underwater and will command breathtaking views of the surrounding coral reef and marine life.  The sea level accommodation will boast floor to ceiling windows, uninterrupted sea views, a fully-fitted kitchen with a dining area, an open plan living area and when the glass façade opens the sun deck becomes an extension of the living space. The upper deck is the perfect place for alfresco dining and relaxation and features an informal bed, a mini bar, a kitchenette and a beautiful glass-bottomed Jacuzzi.  The deck can be converted into a winter bedroom which can be enclosed with retractable drapes. The Floating Seahorse has been designed and developed by leading European architects (like A-cero) for Kleindienst Group’s iconic island project. The seahorse is an endangered species so the Kleindienst Group will create an artificial coral reef beneath the luxury retreats as a protected area in which seahorses can safely live and breed.  Very soon, people will be able to see up-close and personal, the beautiful and elegant Arabian horse of the ocean.
