Sweden launched in Heart of Europe : The World project in Dubai

Posted on 16th December 2014

Sweden is being brought to Dubai. Real estate agent and developer Kleindienst Group has launched Phase Two of The Heart of Europe (THOE) development on Dubai’s The World.

The-world-Dubai-and-Palm-IslandThis includes the launch of Sweden Island, which will be home to ten exclusive and modern villas, each designed with touches of Swedish history and sophisticated Scandinavian architecture as well as unique snow sauna rooms, according to news reports on Construction Week.

Each villa will be home to seven bedrooms spread across four floors, a gym and spa, as well as entertainment space, private beach access and a private pool.

The luxurious villas resemble the upturned hull of the renowned Viking ships, representing a Swedish historical treasure, and the island will be home to an authentic floating restaurant, based on Stockholm’s famous Saluhall Market.

Richard Westcott, founder of leading European design firm Jardim Vista Landscaping, has been appointed for the landscaping of Sweden Island, and his designs incorporate the finest European architecture in a tropical island setting.

JK Bauen, an affiliate company of Kleindeinst Group specialising in construction, has been appointed to carry out all of the construction and building work on Sweden Island.

Commenting, Josef Kleindienst, CEO of Kleindienst Group, said: “We are extremely excited to announce Phase Two of The Heart of Europe and share details about Sweden Island. The island will not only be home to the finest Swedish architecture and design, but it will bring the best of Swedish culture and lifestyle to Dubai.

“We want to ensure people are genuinely able to experience Sweden on The Heart of Europe, through food, music, festivals, traditions and architecture, and I am confident that once complete, THOE will bring a totally unique holiday experience to Dubai.”

In terms of construction, THOE has carried out a rigorous program of vibrocompaction ground engineering on the six islands and the plate load testing results have far and away achieved well beyond the acceptance criteria for the ultimate bearing pressure.

Results show that in the next 50 years the settlement of The Heart of Europe islands when they are built upon, will settle better under building pressure than that of Dubai mainland. This shows the extensive level of construction quality achieved and guarantees a high level of security, over a very long period of time on The Heart of Europe development.
