Those are the interiors of the ARMANI RESIDENCES and were designed by Giorgio Armani himself. Those apartments comes furbished and probably serviced as well ... but if you buy an apartments in the higher floors then they come empty and you can do what you want with them (as far as furbishing is concern)

Interior is not impressive....they have adjust the room space and did set up....its not the standard of the Burj Duabi as I aspected...unless they come up with extra ordinary interior with enough room space.....

If you are in the UK watch ITV 1 at 9 pm. There is a one hour programme by Piers Morgan about the extremes of Dubai including a trip up Burj Dubai in a lift that has a notice saying "Do not lean against the doors!"

The interior shots of the Armani residences are pretty nice i thought. I like the dark wood cabinetry, As for the shots of the Burj Al Arab, horrible, way to OTT.
If i were to buy an apartment here i would want to do my own fitout, basically i would just want the shell of the aprtment and do all finishings and furnishings myself.

Were buyers allowed to do that? Or did they have to buy and finished apartment, and then rip out and re-do all the finsihed if they want it there own way?

Come on guys, Burj Al Arab is a Hotel not a residential apartment building.

As for Burj Dubai, I already said that those sample were for Giorgio Armani Residences on top of Hotel floors at the lower floors, not the residential apartments/condos higher up in the tower, which comes empty.

I dont think that Armani apartment would have the same design. Mockup apartments are the "simple" apartments, right?
Armani will be luxurious
