Dubai ruler lodges plans for Inverinate estate house
October 1 2018
Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, vice president and prime minister of Dubai, is to build a nine-bedroom extension and staff lodges to his existing estate at Inverinate in Wester Ross.
Plans for the stone clad summer retreat have been drawn up by Colin Armstrong Architects to sit alongside the current estate house and with views out across Loch Duich.
In a statement the architects wrote: “The owners of Inverinate Estate typically travel in large groups of immediate and extended family and friends. In recent years their travel to Inverinate has been limited by lack of accommodation.
“Additional staff accommodation was completed in 2017 to create infrastructure that would support greater use of the estate by the owner and this new application seeks to create residential accommodation for the use of the owners, their family and their guests in order they may enjoy more frequent and extended visits to Inverinate.”
Maktoum is best known for masterminding several Dubai mage projects including the Palm Islands, Burj Al-Arab hotel and Burj Khalifa tower.
