Conceptual Elevations of The Retreat - Cabin Architecture

ghantoot masterplan

Located halfway between Abu Dhabi and Dubai, Ghantoot provides convenient access to the Khalifa Port, Dubai Waterfront, Maktoum Airport, and other planned projects.

A self-contained community, Ghantoot will emulate the resort-style setting allowing residents to live, work and play in the historic tree plantation oasis.

The masterplan includes living units for residents, office parks and high rises to support workers. Golf courses, trail systems and other outdoor amenities provide recreation and entertainment.

cabin architecture – context

GMH By Design believes that a projects context is as important as any of the clients needs. This means each and every one of our projects takes the location of the project into consideration; local as well as the actual property itself.

cabin architecture – comfort

GMH By Design is all about the comfort of our clients with the final project. For most, a remodel, addition, or new building will be one of the most expensive purchases they make. In the case of The Retreat, the client wanted to double the size of the original cabin while at the same time maintaining the feel of a secluded cabin.

cabin architecture – retreat

The definition of retreat is a place of privacy or safety. The intent of GMH By Design when designing The Retreat was to provide just that a place for the client to rest, relax, and enjoy their privacy in a safe comfortable place.
