10 Design has unveiled its design for LA VIE, a modern mixed-use destination in Muscat, Oman, with an anticipated opening of 2026.

The international architecture firm was chosen to take charge of the development, which will contain business, leisure, wellness, and sports opportunities amidst views of the Muscat Hills Golf Course.

A home for golf, wellness, and leisure in Oman

The 64,000sqm development will provide visitors an array of modern golf experiences, family-friendly activities, and a variety of dining options.

The project is developed by Oman Real Estate Investment Services LLC (ORIS), and will be comprised of a hotel, 22 apartments, office space and a golf clubhouse and course.

The property’s international standard golf club, LA VIE Club, will house an 18-hole golf course and driving range, catering to beginner and elite golfers of all ages.

The development’s hotel, Tivoli Muscat Hotel & Residences, will be comprised of 80 keys and 100 branded residences. The hotel will contain a 70-meter rooftop pool, fitness center, ballroom, four meeting rooms, and an Anantara spa. 

The LA VIE development itself will host a range of dining and shopping experiences, including several different restaurants and bars. There will also be 2800sqm of retail space, with a variety of international brands expected to set up shop. 

A touch of nature in a prime location

It will be located between the Sea of Oman and the Al-Hajar mountains, while still only ten minutes from Muscat International Airport, and close to residential urban centers and the central business district.

José Cláudio Silva, 10 Design’s Principal, said the firm had been inspired by landforms “embraced by a coastline” when designing the project. 

“We wanted to bring the green to the terraces and the roofs of the buildings, blurring the boundaries between architecture and nature, for a truly immersive experience,” he said. 

 “While traditionally, stacked, tall buildings can feel disconnected from surrounding context, our intimately scaled design leverages cascading terraces and walkable slopes to bring people together, stimulate the senses, and invite engagement.”

The full structure is slated for completion at the end of 2024, with an anticipated opening of Q1 2026.
