ESCAPE I & II ⁠— AMMAR KALO

Art pieces of luminous virtuosity, “Escape I & II” for the two main lobbies of Belgravia III are award-winning designer Ammar Kalo’s nod to futuristic art with inspiration from the natural world. Each art piece is a cluster of reflective aluminum concave cells with sea-shell-like texture. The cells are mounted on a wall and aggregated in a way that will reflect light in a unique way, creating an atmosphere of dynamism⁠ — a theatre of light for the lobbies.

RIPTIDE ⁠— S2 INTERIORS
BELGRAVIA III

A stellar artistic rendition that’s anchored in the timelessness of universe, “Riptide” by S2 Interiors for the two lobbies of Belgravia III rewrites the dialogue between wind and water on wood. It employs parametric design to question the solidarity of wood and in the process creates a moment of aeonic magnitude – an ocean wave in nature. The feature wooden walls in both lobbies of Belgravia III are created from vertically arranged wood pieces that together create a fluid wavelike movement, enriching the space with a seemingly sparse yet boundless grandeur.

INTO THE SHALLOWS ⁠— MADIHA
BELGRAVIA III

A visually arresting artwork for Belgravia III’s Residence Club created by Dubai-based Pakistani artist Madiha, “Into the Shallows” is an attempt to condense the expanse of the ocean and its magnificence onto the canvas. Employing acrylic and metallic embellishments, she captures the movement and mood of the sea by layering and blending many tones and hues. Her painting will grace the mood and aesthetics of the Residence Club and provide access to a wondrous moment taken from the serene and lush coastal life.
