Abu Dhabi: Prospective homebuyers in the UAE seeking a distinctive and inspiring place to call their home can now visit the brand-new Pixel show apartment. Set within a development that has creativity at its heart, Abu Dhabi-based place-maker, IMKAN, has announced the opening of the Pixel show apartment at its recently opened beach-front Makers District Sales Centre.
Located on Reem Island, IMKAN’s Makers District development is the UAE’s newest mixed-use hub that is expected to prove a magnet for creatives, entrepreneurs and innovators. Located in the contemporary Sales Centre, the fully furnished Pixel show apartment is a typical one-bedroom unit that will be available within the seven-tower community. The apartment has been appointed to create a simple, relaxing, modern interior space, reflecting the project’s vision for stunning homes and inspiring architecture, all set within a dynamic urban environment.
Residents of Pixel will be able to call an architectural masterpiece home. IMKAN’s team of architects, designers and placemakers have surpassed themselves to deliver a truly unique and diverse living experience. With harmony between its open and closed spaces a chief consideration of the development from its inception, the entire community has been designed in partnership with award-winning Dutch architectural firm MVRDV.
“The ethos of Pixel is evident in its design, with its architecture encapsulating digitalism, the future, technology, innovation and creativity. It is with great pleasure that we announce the opening of the Pixel show apartment and invite prospective buyers to our Reem Island Sale Centre to experience for themselves Pixel’s captivating aesthetics, state-of-the-art facilities and outstanding build quality. We look forward to welcoming visitors to Makers District, where we will be delighted to show them more of what Pixel has to offer,” said Walid El Hindi, IMKAN CEO.
Once complete, Pixel will be home to 525 contemporary apartments ranging from studios to four-bedrooms. A mixed-use development, Pixel will also house boutique office units and retail and F&B outlets across the entire ground floor of the fully pedestrianized central plaza, creating a vibrant and dynamic working and living hub.
Prioritising the comfort and peace of Pixel’s residents, particularly its first tranche of homeowners, IMKAN has committed to build all seven towers simultaneously so that new occupiers won’t be living in an environment of ongoing construction. The company believes that maximising the customer experience is something that suffuses every aspect of its operations.
“Putting the human experience first is the philosophy at the core of IMKAN’s operations. This is transparent not only with our construction agenda, but also with the internationally-renowned companies we choose to partner with. A main element of IMKAN’s unique approach involves harmonising communal spaces such as parks, paths and parking areas, with private residential spaces, resulting in an ergonomic community-based design which seamlessly integrates all components,” said Nigel Craddock, IMKAN Design Director.
IMKAN is currently completing Pixel’s various communal areas that have been designed to connect community members, whilst also giving them space to enjoy their own company should they prefer. A central focal point of the development is its pedestrianised plaza, which encompasses the concept of ‘walkability’ and the fortuitous results that often follow chance encounters.
Pixel is just one of IMKAN’s Makers District developments that are creating a new panoramic skyline along Reem Island’s picturesque waterfront. Located in a prime spot for artistic inspiration, Makers District is just across the water from some of the UAE capital’s famous cultural landmarks, including the Louvre Abu Dhabi and the site of the planned Guggenheim Abu Dhabi. Future phases of the Makers District masterplan include a waterfront boutique hotel and a series of residential developments that will deliver a total of 3,700 units across the entire development, also incorporating F&B outlets and co-working spaces. Pixel is scheduled for final completion in 2021.
