Ferrutti Contracting on Building a Space for Entertainment

Ignacio Del Hierro takes us on a tour of an exciting revival of an entertainment space in an Al Sufouh villa

When Ignacio Del Hierro was tasked with renovating a ground floor swimming pool area for a family, he and his team at Ferrutti Contracting undertook a comprehensive transformation that breathed new life into the space. “The existing space trapped humidity, and the swimming pool area was underutilised. The gym was very outdated as well,” Del Hierro explains. To address these issues, he and his team embarked on a complete reconfiguration of the space. They introduced a false ceiling and resized the infinity pool to about a third of its original dimensions. A new Jacuzzi, and a sunken seating area that functions as a majlis with custom seating, were also added. Lights above the seating area provide a warm and inviting illumination. The flooring was updated to lighter porcelain tiles, revitalising the accompanying changing rooms, showers and toilets. Walk-in closets, wardrobes and joinery, custom-made in Italy, were also installed.

To the left of the space, a kitchen island complemented by designer lighting serves as a functional and stylish centrepiece. The adjacent kitchenette features luxury marble and luminous light fixtures, adding a touch of luxury. On the right side of the space lies the gym, which received an expansion. The lighting and flooring were replaced, and an old storage room was transformed into a minibar for refreshments, complete with joinery fabricated in Italy and a restroom with a shower.

Del Hierro’s team also installed a home automation system and smart glass which can be customised for complete privacy for the family. Additionally, a wooden deck with flooring graced the outdoors, along with bi-folding doors and moveable mashrabiya screens; seamlessly blending functionality and aesthetic appeal. This meticulous attention to detail and thoughtful integration of modern elements into the villa’s entertainment space exemplifies Ferrutti’s commitment to creating luxurious, practical and visually striking environments.
