I know that I never do posts on contemporary/modern mansions, but this one is truly unbelievable. The 35,000 square foot mansion was designed by Culver City, CA based Ehrlich Architects. The home, dubbed the Helal New Moon Residence, is located in Dubai. The home has gorgeous marble floors, massive floor to ceiling windows, beautiful sculptures throughout, and extremely tall ceilings. This home is beyond compare! I wonder who the mystery client is? My guess is that its probably someone from the royal family.

    I really like contemporary/modern homes and this one is amazing. With how massive the space is you would think it was 60 or 70 thousand sq.ft. Great find.

    Contemporary homes are way more interesting than the more traditional type of home that most Americans seem to prefer.

    Nice to see a home on this site that doesn't have the obligatory dual staircase foyer, checkered marble floor, imitation pillars and tacky furnishings.

    This home is fantastic, albeit a little like an airport terminal (look at those metal ceilings). I can see something like this being built in Miami. Those immense windows overlooking the ocean or the bay = spectacular party setting!

    However, If I were to build a contemporary home, I would probably get Guy Dreier (http://www.guydreierdesigns.com/interface.htm) to design it. His designs are contemporary, but in no way cold or warehouse like. Just look at the pictures of the Robb Report 2009 Home of the Year. Stunning!

    You are right, the Guy Dreier Robb Report 2009 Home is really great. If I could, I would also build a contemporary mansion. Though a lot of them are really cold.
    Thanks for the link to the Guy Dreier homes. I really love them.

    There is a home in Dubai that is the biggest in the country. It’s owned by the Royal Price. This guy has about 11 top of the line BMWs, 2 Mercedes Benz, 2 Bentleys and one car that is silver and when I say silver I mean it’s made out of pure silver 100% and it is gorgeous. This kingdom looks like a entire city at night. I though it was when I first saw it and seen the house in the day light and it is the house itself. These are photographs I got when I was in Iraq. There is no web link for these images.

    • You are such a retard. It’s owned by a rich guy, not ROYAL. And the family doesn’t even own a Bentley, or a BMW. And the benz is a normal one. Make sure of the info before posting it . . .
