One of my favourite movie quotations says: “follow the money”. Yes, if you follow the money you will find many dirty jobs, but also great things like amazing buildings and impressive architecture because those who have it, the money, want something nobody else has ever had or seen. That is why we can witness nowadays an amazing number of great buildings in Dubai, where the money flows thanks to the oil business. Well, they thought big even from the 1990s when this building was designed by the architect Carlos Ott from NORR International.

Sometimes there is a big difference between the idea in your head and what you actually do in reality. That happens because in theory you do not consider many variables and also you can suddenly change your mind in the middle of something. That is why it’s always better to turn your ideas into real things and only after that draw a conclusion. That is probably what the architecture students think: it’s better to do something for real than only think about it if you want to stand out and people consider your visions.

The Cortland Residence is a modern and imposing structure spread over an area of 7800 square feet. It impresses with its strong but simple design, its size and its elegant interior. The Cortland Residence was designed by Nicholas Clark Architects. It can be found in a dense urban area, in a neighborhood dominated by similar structures, most of them featuring a more traditional design.
Despite the imposing design and structure, the residence is actually not that huge. The architects had to find a way to offer maximum of comfort given a limited space and without being able to count on having large surfaces to work with. Still, they managed to use the space cleverly and in their favor. Moreover, the property also has huge exterior spaces that include two large courtyards. The house has three distinct levels, each with specific functions. The rooms are spacious and have large glass windows and doors that open them and give them an airy feel.

The old house now definitely has a more eye-catching look. It might be simple but it’s also very beautiful and stylish. This allows it to have a strong visual impact.
The Hayvenhurst House has been updated and it now has a modern look. It features an open floor plan like most modern and contemporary homes. The main living area is very spacious and it has a clean and linear décor. A minimalist fireplace and a grey fireplace wall/partition is the focal point of the room. It divides the kitchen from the living room and it also makes the atmosphere feel a little more inviting. White open shelves and storage cabinets cover one of the walls and connect the two spaces.
