New horizons

As art and design gallery StudioTwentySeven opens a new Manhattan showroom, founder Nacho Polo explains how this is the beginning of a new era

Until recently, Nacho Polo and Robert Onuska of art and design gallery StudioTwentySeven had been greeting clients in their impeccable lofty penthouse suite in Manhattan’s Tribeca neighborhood, home to treasured pieces from their own collection. The duo, based between Miami and New York, is now extending that experience to their new Downtown headquarters, across the street from their apartment.

The 7,000 sq ft gallery space is a notable departure from the partners’ first “white box”-style outpost in Miami. “The new space is very our taste, our interiors, how we express ourselves,” says Polo, the gallery’s founder, chief executive, and creative director.

The curved walls, finished in a custom dark ivory color, are accentuated by recessed lighting that meets the oak floors and guides visitors into hidden rooms and nooks.

An economics graduate with no formal training in design, Polo followed his passion and dabbled in interior design before founding StudioTwentySeven in 2018. He brought on Onuska, who had trained in apparel and textile design with a career in visual merchandising. “And, literally, we grew up together, in our relationship and in the gallery.”

The couple’s focus has expanded to include a global range of contemporary artists and designers under their representation, as well as one-of-a-kind

20th-century pieces. Now on view, by appointment, are highlights including an enormous glass chandelier in shades of bronze shaped like an artichoke, designed by StudioTwentySeven in collaboration with Klove Studio and inspired by the 1950s Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach; a crab-shaped bar cabinet titled Granchio by Paris-based interior designer Laura Gonzalez; and a monumental Torkwase Dyson painting hanging above a Pierre Augustin Rose velvet sofa. In the bathroom, a lounge chair by London-based studio Akha paired with a bronze side table by Stepháne Parmentier greet visitors like an old-school smoking room.

In 2020, Polo and Onuska began their private art collection as they decorated their New York apartment with advice from French designer, friend, and collaborator Francesco Balzano, whose pieces are scattered throughout their residence and gallery.

Balzano is the subject of StudioTwentySeven’s first exhibition opening this fall, a solo show consisting of eight newly commissioned pieces inspired by the architecture of New York—and the gallery’s building, more specifically. (The building, a historic landmark, is a Neo-Renaissance design from 1901 by Henry J Hardenbergh, who also designed the Plaza Hotel and the Dakota Apartments.)

What started as a one-man operation six years ago has now grown to a team of 20,

with sales teams in Los Angeles, Chicago and Tennessee, as well as in Europe, the Middle East, and China. The vision is to continue to expand (there are plans for a London branch of the gallery) and eventually include interior design. “We did what we wanted, for ourselves,” Polo says. “We were not even thinking about it as a business, but [asking ourselves]: ‘What do we like to live with?’”

On the town

In an elegant Robert A M Stern Architects-designed skyscraper built in 2016, with architecture recalling the art deco landmarks New York is famous for, this threebedroom apartment enjoys expansive views of the Lower Manhattan skyline, including the neighboring Neo-Gothic Woolworth Building. At the heart of the property is a double-height living space with floor-to-ceiling windows, bringing in an abundance of light and enhancing the spacious feel. Throughout the home, solid oak wood flooring is complemented by crafted cabinetry, custom vanities, top-of-the-line kitchen appliances, and marble countertops. While the apartment is an oasis of calm, it is just steps away from the trendy galleries and eateries that Tribeca is celebrated for.

The art of habitation

A new book explores the architect Peter Marino’s unique approach to designing a home that’s truly one of a kind

With a clientele roster that reads like an A to Z of luxury fashion houses—think Armani, Bulgari, and Chanel, to name just a few—New York-based architect Peter Marino is arguably the most sought-after designer for creating high-end retail environments. His residential designs, however, are equally jaw-dropping to behold, with individualistic and site-specific projects now revealed in a new book, Peter Marino: Ten Modern Houses (Phaidon).

To call him just a Modernist is a misnomer, as his style is really an amalgam of modern, material-led, art-focused, artisanal, and contextual. Who else can deftly craft a grand stone, wood, and bronze staircase to go with an abstract stainlesssteel sculpture by Tony Cragg and hand-embroidered chairs in one residence— and then comfortably combine Takashi Murakami art with ancient phulkari textiles and vintage 1960s furniture in another?

Below right: The Florida home’s living room has a double-height glass wall angled towards the Biscayne Bay, with a cantilevered roof plane to shield it from the heat of the sun

For a home in Florida, he approached a client with a museum-quality art collection—including works by the likes of Alexander Calder, Robert Rauschenberg, and Joan Miró—with a pair of linked Modernist, jewelry box-like volumes whose light limestone walls form the perfect neutral backdrop to the artworks. Beyond considering the contents of a house, Marino always engages with the surrounding landscape—here being a narrow waterside site on a private island in Biscayne Bay. He devised an entrance foyer with a completely glazed bay-facing back wall, to ensure that the water is the first thing people see upon entering the home.

The interconnected living and dining room treats visitors to views of the art collection and, through a double-height glass wall, of the bay once again. While the public areas harbor most of the artwork, the private zones offer up their own Marino brand of eye candy in the form of material exploration influenced by the locale’s tropical climate. In the master bath, for example, an exotic pattern of sliced green onyx at once conjures both a lush forest and an undersea coral reef.

Meanwhile, on a hillside in the south of France overlooking the Côte d’Azur, Marino eschewed a boxy and angular architectural approach for one of wavy organic forms and whimsical retro-mod motifs. Curved bands of blond stucco spill out beyond stacked fieldstone and glass walls to delineate generous balconies, shady overhangs, and green-roof expanses that meld into a terraced garden landscape while affording unobstructed sea views.

“I have tried to faithfully follow the spirit of the places that I built upon,” he says of the 10 international projects featured in the book. All, he adds, express a “high degree of affection for the art of habitation.”

All eyes on Paris

The best hotels, restaurants, and shops to discover as the Olympic Games come to the City of Light

The Summer Olympics promise to be a busy time in Paris. Global attention will be focused on the 329 sporting events scheduled between July 26 and August 11— from diving and fencing to table tennis and gymnastics—as well as the host city, which was last home to the iconic Games

100 years ago. Steeped in culture, here are the hotels, restaurants and shops—new and old—that provide a perfect opportunity to discover the French capital in a new light. Sarah Belmont is a Paris-based writer and contributor to Le Parisien and Beaux Arts magazine

Hôtel Hana

Hana means “flower” in Japanese. It is also the name of a new 26-room hotel, where the sophistication of the Belle Époque and Asian refinement meet. “To me, it was crucial to create a warm atmosphere, despite the concept being minimalistic,” says designer Laura Gonzalez, who crafted the hotel’s interiors. “I used iroko wood with golden reflections and raku ceramics, an ancestral Japanese process.”

17 Rue du 4 septembre, 75002

Le Bon Marché

One of Paris’ most emblematic department stores, Le Bon Marché was founded by art collectors and patrons Aristide and Marguerite Boucicaut. In memory of this power couple, artworks have been collected and displayed throughout the art deco building since 1989. The adjacent La Grande Épicerie stocks refined groceries from around the world.

24 Rue de Sèvres, 75007


Chef Mory Sacko’s new restaurant—with a menu combining African and French influences—was named after Gilbert du Motier, aka the Marquis de Lafayette, a French aristocrat who volunteered in the American Revolutionary War. The lavish decor is the work of interior designer Lázaro Rosa-Violán, who requested the expertise of Galerie Kraemer, specialized in 18th-century furniture and art objects.

Oka Fogo

Michelin-starred chef Raphael Rego’s Oka restaurant—which translates to “house” in Brazil’s Indigenous Tupi language—has moved to the 17th arrondissement, and is now paired with a sister restaurant, Fogo, meaning “fire.” The kitchen sits between the two, serving food that mixes Brazilian and French influences, accompanied by a list of more than 5,000 wines. The sophisticated space is designed by architect Arnaud Behzadi, with hand-painted murals by the artist Florence Bamberger.

8 Rue Meissonier, 75017

Hôtel Balzac

Hotelier Olivier Bertrand and his sisters have taken up the direction of Hôtel Balzac—the last home of writer Honoré de Balzac—and entrusted the design duo Festen, formed of Charlotte de Tonnac and Hugo Sauzay, with its revamp. The Parisian landmark reopens just in time for the Olympics, with a muted color palette, a Japanese spa and a three-Michelin-starred restaurant by Pierre Gagnaire.

6 Rue Balzac, 75008


This recently renovated restaurant has, over the past 130 years, received its fair share of celebrities, including Marcel Proust, Edith Piaf, and Jean Cocteau. Artistic director Cordelia de Castellane has embraced the original art nouveau decor, including red velvet banquettes, stained-glass windows and mahogany panels. With soufflés, frog’s legs and scallops in white butter, the menu is a roll call of French classics. Meanwhile, indulgent desserts come courtesy of pastry chef Yann Couvreur. 3 Rue Royale, 75008


The first French outpost of this celebrated home decor store is nestled in the former antiques shop of Madeleine Castaing, an influential dealer in 20th-century France. It comprises two spaces: one devoted to textiles and dinnerware; the other to perfumes, candles and incense. The brand’s founder and creative director Elad Yifrach put architect Costantino di Sambuy, of LA studio Anno Mille, in charge of the pared-back yet playful design. 30 Rue Jacob, 75006

A winning season

Exhibitions and attractions across Paris are celebrating the Olympics through culture

In the lead up to the 2024 Olympic Games, hundreds of events, shows, and exhibitions are taking place in cultural institutions across France as part of the Cultural Olympiad—a multidisciplinary artistic and cultural program that aims to start new

conversations between the worlds of art, culture, and sport. With so much happening in Paris alone, we have put together a guide of the best things to see this summer.

To celebrate skateboarding’s recent inclusion at the Olympic Games, the Centre Pompidou has invited French artist Raphaël Zarka to create a “skateable” sculpture for the vast Place Georges-Pompidou in front of the museum. A practitioner of the sport himself, Zarka creates large geometrical sculptures as a dialogue with skateboarders, whom he has invited to interact with his work in various public spaces, drawing a direct connection between skateboarding and contemporary art.

The Horse in Majesty, National Museum of the Palace of Versailles, July 2–November 3

All equestrian events during the Paris Olympic and Paralympic Games will take place at the Palace of Versailles. In July, the former royal residence presents a special exhibition dedicated to horses and equestrian civilization from the 16th to the early 20th century. It includes more than 400 works from collections around the world, many of which are being shown in France for the first time. Visitors can also admire the palace’s recently restored Apollo’s Fountain, a sculptural group depicting the Greek god emerging from the central fountain in a four-horse chariot.

Chaumet, a jeweler founded in 1780, has been given the prestigious task of designing this year’s Olympic medals, which were crafted using iron from the Eiffel Tower, salvaged from renovation work over the years. The Monnaie de Paris, the institution responsible for minting France’s coins, as well as the medals themselves, is hosting an exhibition on the history of these iconic awards. “Whether it is gold, silver, or bronze, the Olympic medal is a unique symbol of personal achievement,” says Marc Schwartz, president of the Monnaie de Paris.

Match: Design and Sport –A Story Looking to the Future, Musée du Luxembourg, until August 11

Good design plays an essential role in sport, whether through ergonomics to optimize athletes’ performances, the weight of a ball to define the speed of a game, or the architecture of a stadium to enhance spectators’ experiences. In this exhibition at the Musée du Luxembourg, German designer Konstantin Grcic explores the relationship between design and sport, tracing its history while looking to the future.

Olympism: Modern Invention, Ancient Legacy, Musée du Louvre, until September 16

The first modern Olympic Games in 1896 were envisioned to recreate the sporting competitions of ancient Greece, drawing inspiration from archeological discoveries. An exhibition at the Louvre explores this history through pieces including the silver “Bréal’s Cup”—the inaugural Olympic Cup—which was created for the winner of the first marathon.

Top table

Three designers who make entertaining more fun

Entertaining guests during the summer months presents a chance to go offbeat, and to swap traditional glasses and crockery for bolder table accessories that reflect the season’s brighter days and longer, livelier evenings. Thankfully, there are a number of contemporary designers creating tableware that is both eye-catching and elegant.

One of them is New York-based Sophie Lou Jacobsen, a French-American designer who focuses on making objects that bring joy—and a hint of poetry—to daily rituals. She has recently released a range of coupes, flutes, wine, cordial, and aperitif glasses that are inspired by wildflowers—the rim of each blooms outwards and the slender stem is adorned with tiny bobbles to suggest thorns.

The collection, aptly titled Bouquet, references floral motifs developed by early 20th-century artistic movements such as the Viennese Wiener Werkstätte and French art nouveau group École de Nancy. Flowers also inform Jacobsen’s Petal plates range, which features rippling edges and comes in sumptuous shades such as olive green, rose pink, and indigo blue. “Distinctive tableware adds beauty and visual interest to the dining experience,” says Jacobsen. “It makes everyday meals more enjoyable.”

The scallop-edged plate designs produced by Polish brand Branik bring their own personality to the table, drawing inspiration from the dramatic ruffs that were the height of fashion in 16th- and 17th-century Europe. Part of a range titled Frill, they are crafted from visually striking types of natural stone, such as veiny Calacatta Viola marble, creamy travertine, and green Amazonite.

Agata Knorowska, the brand’s founder, developed an interest in the material when she worked as an interior architect and became fascinated with the colors, textures, and translucency of different stones. But her

affinity for unique tableware stems from longstanding traditions within her own family. “My muse is my great-grandmother, Zofia Branik. She was born in 1900 and would always pay attention to little details that bring solace—one flower in a vase, a candle lit in the evening, a cup of tea in a delicate cup,” she says. “I believe that these details can elevate the dining experience and that aesthetic pleasures can help us relax, comfort us, and bring bliss.”

When languid alfresco dinners draw to a close and the moment for a nightcap arises, the characterful, hand-blown glassware of Los Angeles designer Cedric Mitchell comes into its own. His Clearly Kinetic liqueur tumblers balance on amber spheres infused with 24-carat gold leaf. “I wanted to find a fun and playful way to create shape,” he says. “The form of the glass increases the intimate experience of drinking by accentuating the movement and aroma of the liquid inside.”

They are available in a clear or smoked finish, and in vivid hues such as teal, apricot, and ruby. Whichever design is selected, Mitchell says accessorizing a dining table is fundamentally about being brave enough to tap into your own creativity and taste: “Just as fashion and home decor allow for personal expression, so does tableware.” Natasha Levy is an architecture and interior design writer based in London

When it comes to sustainability in design, the idea is often that less is more. But for those who want their interiors to make an impact without harming the planet, these designers have the answer

At a home in San Francisco, designer Nicole Hollis used natural lacquer to create a statement blue dining room with a glossy finish

Reduce, reuse, recycle” is the mantra of those pushing for sustainability in every industry, as companies strive to become more climate-aware. In interior design, such an approach is commonly associated with minimalist schemes boasting raw materials, subtle details, and a restrained palette of colors. But what about the tribe of design lovers who believe more is more? A host of recent projects by design visionaries is showing that maximalism and sustainability don’t have to be at odds, by embracing clever techniques that deliver the drama without damaging the environment.

One popular approach is to rework classic design objects for a modern context. “I love incorporating vintage and antique pieces into my projects,” says Matthew Williamson, the renowned British fashion and interior designer. Williamson is known for a love of excess when it comes to mixing shape, color, and pattern across both residential and commercial projects. “By sourcing unique finds with a rich history, I not only infuse character into spaces but also reduce the environmental footprint associated with new manufacturing,” he says. “Whether it’s transforming an antique chest of drawers into a bathroom vanity or repurposing vintage textiles into eclectic cushions, the possibilities for creating maximalist, sustainable interiors are endless.”

His latest project, the Design Kitchen bar and restaurant at London’s Design Museum, is full of vintage treasures sourced by Williamson and his friend Lia Briamonte, creative director at Anemone Interiors. Around 90% of the pieces used in the project are vintage—largely mid-century—and sourced within the UK. The eclectic scheme features bespoke pieces, hand-blown glass lighting, decorative artworks, and a color palette that nods to the lush greenery of its Holland Park setting. The project involved reupholstering the space’s original seating and introducing a mix of patterns and textures, from retro floral prints on pleated lampshades to sumptuous velvet.

The private home is a natural playground for maximalists, where clients with big budgets may let them have free rein with layering bold color, statement patterns, and stimulating textures. It’s also a domain where interior designers can make sustainable choices without sacrificing impact. “I don’t see sustainability as using furnishings minimally,” says San Francisco-based interior designer Nicole Hollis. “Sustainability to me means being mindful by reusing and recycling, and using high-end collectible furnishings to ensure the interiors will stand the test of time and not need to be replaced.”

In late 2022, Hollis completed a jaw-dropping transformation of a period home in Haight-Ashbury, a neighborhood of the city famed for its links with 1960s counterculture. The trippy renovation is full of clashing decorative details based on the clients’ interests and the history of the home, which was once used as a recording studio by The Grateful Dead and the Steve Miller Band.

One of the major features is a lustrous all-blue dining room enclosed by glossy walls. The slick and shiny finish of these isn’t the result of paint or varnish but natural or “true” lacquer. This slow and sustainable finishing technique originated in ancient Asia, and involves applying tree sap to give a smooth, hard, and durable finish. The faster and cheaper way to achieve such a sheen is with paint or varnish, many of which emit chemcials and other harmful compounds

Reside — Summer 2024

when applied. “We focus on specifying the highest quality materials and finishes that will last, as one key way to maintain a certain standard of sustainability in our projects,” Hollis says. To complete the color-drenched look, the dining room’s decorative ceiling was created in blue plaster by LA-based surface design specialist Londubh Studio; the highly saturated solution means the space thrums with color intensity rather than sporting just a superficial splash. Along with the freedom to make more considered material choices, maximalist designs can give greater scope to collaborate with local craftspeople on bespoke pieces. This means investing in people’s skills, talent, and livelihoods rather than brands that mass produce and ship products from miles away. The house in HaightAshbury showcases a wealth of one-offs by local and national talents that Hollis champions. There’s a custom hookah by the Haas Brothers with a form that harks back to the space age design movement, and a sculptural lounge chair by designer Chris Schanck, known for his oozing shapes and outlandish textures in aluminum foil.

Working directly with artisans on furnishings affords designers greater transparency, traceability, and control over the production process—they can be exacting in how materials are sourced and who is responsible for handling them.

Shalini Misra, an interior designer with studios in Italy, the UAE, India, and the US, also relied on the strength of local crafts to complete a recent home in the leafy London neighborhood St John’s Wood. The double-height space at the center of the home features a bespoke patterned marble floor, cupboard doors depicting scenes of nature in detailed marquetry, and a stair with hand-wrapped leather balustrades—a feature that reminds us that maximalism can have luxurious tactile effects as well as visual.

In the double-fronted Victorian villa home, the potential to make a bold statement was already there. With sustainability in mind, Misra says the transformation was a reimagining, rather than a total reinvention. “We went to great lengths to honor, reinstate, and reuse a number of the property’s original architectural features, working with them to create a scheme that I felt communicated with the history of the building but had a new perspective.”

Like Williamson and Hollis, Misra believes the most sustainable choices are those that will endure long into the future. “It is incredibly difficult to produce a piece of furniture that is entirely sustainable,” she says. “What is not so

Conscious maximalism

complex, if well considered, is extending the life cycle of a piece of furniture already made.” In the reception of the St John’s Wood home, original 1950s chairs by Brazilian architect Joaquim Tenreiro were reupholstered to fit the new scheme. “Repurposing them more than 70 years on is only possible because of the standard to which they were made in the first place—and that’s where circularity in design comes into play so clearly.”

Another major way to nail the sustainable maximalist agenda? Adding planting, Misra suggests. For a hotel lobby design in collaboration with Scarlet Splendour (a supplier of bold, art-led furniture handcrafted in India), the designer used groups of tall potted plants to soften the corners of the space and bring another layer to the already rich material palette of velvet, sheepskin, and geometric-patterned satin.

The tactic of going overboard with greenery was used to great effect by interior designer Laura Gonzalez at Paris’ Restaurant La Gare in 2019, where giant palm fronds and characterful potted cacti were used in multiple clever ways as decorative accents and to define seating areas. Her fashion-influenced signature style involves mixing and matching a dizzying array of visual references: bringing together classical details, crafts, colors, and fabrics from different eras, and artful nods to the history or locality of her sites.

Maximalists will continue to push the boundaries of design with their unlimited imaginations, but with great visibility comes great responsibility. Misra says: “When it comes to sourcing, it’s about making better choices, not perfect ones. I’m wary of any supplier that claims to have a completely sustainable solution. It is our job to educate ourselves, rather than expect the answers to come to us.” 0

ISLAND Fantasy

It’s not hard to see why Capri has been a magnet for emperors, artists, writers, and fi lm stars

Artists who come to Capri are allowed to do as they please. Perhaps they do a little too much as they please,” mused Capri native and multi-hyphenate Edwin Cerio in his 1927 volume of essays Aria di Capri (“That Capri Air”). The writer, engineer, architect, historian, and botanist had a point: the tiny Italian island in the Bay of Naples has long been a refuge for political, intellectual, and artistic exiles, from the Roman emperor Tiberius to the German painter Karl Wilhelm Diefenbach and the Chilean poet-diplomat Pablo Neruda.

The lemon-scented air, azure waters, dramatic coastline, and sun-drenched glamor would later captivate stylish American celebrities: Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Onassis—who popularized the cropped pants named after the island—both holidayed there, as did Grace Kelly. Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, whose love affair began on nearby Ischia, were also frequent visitors.

These days the A-list glitterati continue to be drawn to Capri: billionaires’ superyachts are as common a sight in the marina as the traditional wooden gozzo fishing boats. The singer Mariah Carey, Giovanna Ferragamo of the Italian footwear dynasty, and crystal heiress Fiona Swarovski all have summer homes here.

Most activity on the island is focused on the main town of Capri—home to just over 7,000 people—which gives the island its name. Its attractions fan out from the central Piazzetta along Via Camerelle and Via Tragara, which are lined with high-end boutiques, restaurants, and cafés. Established in 1948, the artisanal perfumery Carthusia captures the essence of Capri in its evocative fragrances, made using local flowers and herbs, while fashion boutique La Parisienne has been dressing style icons since 1906.

The island’s other town, Anacapri, is higher up on the west side of the island. It has an old-world soul and offers views of Monte Solaro, the island’s highest peak, alongside charming piazzas, whitewashed houses, and artisan workshops.

For gourmands, life doesn’t get much sweeter than under the citrus canopy at family-run restaurant Da Paolino, which serves traditional Caprese fare. At Terrazza Tiberio, executive chef Nello Siano prepares dishes that focus on regional ingredients—try the casatiello, a savory bread from Naples. Then there’s the Wonka-worthy dessert room at Il Riccio, which teems with sweet treats from torta Caprese (chocolate and almond cake) to sfogliatelle.

In keeping with Capri’s creative spirit, the 2024 edition of the exclusive art and design fair NOMAD (July 4–7) takes place in Certosa di San Giacomo—a 14th-century Carthusian monastery and one of the oldest buildings on the island. Previous editions have featured special projects by curator Hans Ulrich Obrist and designer Patricia Urquiola.

is the last (or sometimes first) major film festival of the year, segueing neatly into awards season. With limited residential inventory available on the island, the demand for property is healthy, if pinched. Housing mostly dates from the 1970s (the last building boom), in the form of grand villas or modernized apartments in eclectic architectural styles. The construction of new homes on Capri, however, is largely prohibited. By contrast, there are myriad covetable hotels. La Minerva and Scalinatella are both family-run boutique hotels near the Piazzetta: think white Mediterranean interiors, majolica tiles, and family heirlooms at the former; and vaulted ceilings, local antique furniture, and limewashed walls at the latter. Elsewhere, the five-star Capri Palace Jumeirah has welcomed the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio and Gwyneth Paltrow to its prime spot at the foot of Monte Solaro. Steps from the Piazzetta, the Hotel La Palma— established in 1822 and billed as the oldest on the island—reopened last year with interiors newly revamped by Maltese designer Francis Sultana. Beneath its glitzy veneer, Capri has a rich architectural fabric. Its crown jewel is Casa Malaparte, a monumental red house with an unmistakable silhouette perched on a promontory. It was designed by Adalberto Libera in

Classic beauty

On the outskirts of Capri’s titular town lies a 1930s estate nestled into the hillside, with a soaring view of the island’s spectacular landscape. The elegant stone architecture of the main villa—all undulating white arches set against the rich greens of pines and cypresses—is matched by lush gardens and panoramic terraces perfect for dining alfresco. Alongside the main villa, a secondary villa and annexe building on the estate accommodate a total of 15 bedrooms. Fit for a movie star, the property has a swimming pool carved into the rock, an artist studio, fitness center, library, and even a funicular hidden in the hillside, which facilitates access between the villas. Inside the main residence, tiled floors sit beneath lofty, vaulted ceilings and a sleek fireplace nods to the home’s Modernist influences.

1937 for the writer Curzio Malaparte, and is among the finest examples of Modern Italian Rationalist architecture. Film buffs may recognize the enigmatic house from Jean-Luc Godard’s 1963 film Contempt (Le Mépris), starring a young Brigitte Bardot. The privately owned villa can be admired from the sea or while hiking the Pizzolungo coastal trail.

Those feeling energetic can follow in the footsteps of one of Capri’s most distinguished residents, the Swedish physician and psychiatrist Axel Munthe, by scaling the Phoenician Steps— all 921 of them—from the port up to Villa San Michele, which Munthe had constructed in 1887 on the site of the ruins of an ancient chapel. Home to an enviable collection of art and antiquities, the villa was designed with “columns of priceless marble, supporting loggias and arcades, beautiful fragments from past ages,” wrote Munthe in The Story of San Michele (1929). The Swedish eccentric received a starry coterie of guests, including Henry James, Oscar Wilde, and Greta Garbo.

To the south of the island, nestled within a mystical pocket given over to the gentle splendor of nature, Hotel Punta Tragara is a charming retreat that marries contemporary verve with Mediterranean panache. The Modernist peach-hued property—described by its architect Le Corbusier as “a kind of architectural bloom… a plant-like phenomenon”—is perched dramatically above Marina Piccola, near the ruins of the Roman villa of Emperor Tiberius. It has a Michelin-starred restaurant, Le Monzù, and recent additions include a suite fully furnished by Milan fashion house Etro.

Le Corbusier’s sanctum presides over the spectacle of the Faraglioni rocks, which emerge from the Tyrrhenian Sea on the island’s south coast. No visit to Capri would be complete without a pilgrimage by boat to this legendary trio of towering giants. “There is no spot in the world with such delightful possibilities of repose as this little isle,” Charles Dickens once extolled. No doubt the two million visitors who descend annually on Capri would heartily agree. 0 Jessica Klingelfuss is a writer specializing in art, design, and travel

LIVING with nature

A biophilic approach to design sees architects finding innovative ways to intertwine domestic spaces with the natural world

Carlo Ratti Associati designed a triple-height extension around a 60-year-old ficus tree for a renovated farmhouse near Parma, Italy

Biophilia, literally the love of living things, is used to define our innate inclination to nature. In the 20th century, psychoanalyst Erich Fromm argued that contact with other living beings provides healing and comfort, while biologist Edward O Wilson, who is best known for coining the term biophilia, wrote about how this affinity towards nature is the essence of humanity.

In design, biophilia has a broad array of applications. Early examples of decorative arts and interiors reveal an ever-present love of nature through plant and animal depictions. Water is worshiped in ancient Indian and Moorish architecture, and it takes a central position again in Baroque fountains. Modernist architect Frank Lloyd Wright, meanwhile, envisaged buildings that were integrated with their natural surroundings, full of plants, and inspired by nature.

Most recently, mindfulness around the climate crisis has led to the embrace of natural, sustainable design choices, and interest around biophilic design has deepened in light of mounting scientific evidence that exposure to nature enhances health and wellbeing. The pandemic lockdowns played a role, too: access to and engagement with nature became paramount for wellbeing— even if it was simply inside homes.

Amid uncertainty, we turn to nature. New York’s Museum of Modern Art’s recent exhibition, Emerging Ecologies: Architecture and the Rise of Environmentalism , exemplified the predominance of the natural world in American architectural design of the 1960s and 1970s. The Denver Art Museum’s show, Biophilia: Nature Reimagined (closes August 11), focuses on experiments in the use of once-living materials, such as baskets made with agave fiber, creosote, and jute by design studio Aranda\Lasch; and biomimetic design, such as the Nana Lure Chandelier by lighting design studio Pelle, reminiscent of banana fronds and made of hand-painted cast-cotton paper.

Biophilic architecture can mean different things. Buildings focused on the natural context of the site and the wellbeing of the users may well be considered biophilic. For Mexican architect Gabriela Carrillo, those aspects are central to her work. “I possess an innate inclination to incorporate the landscape into my projects at various scales,” she says.

Casa Piedra (Stone House), by her practice Taller Gabriela Carrillo, was built in 2020 around a giant granite outcrop in the hills of Acapulco, on the southern Pacific coastline of Mexico. Rather than being separate from nature, the home is intertwined with it. A cavernous entrance stairway built into the rock formation gives way to an open entertaining area overlooking the bay. Here, the large natural boulder takes center stage, giving the illusion that it is holding up the house. Cross ventilation and thoughtful orientation

reduce the overall energy consumption, which is supplemented by renewable energy through photovoltaic panels, and the use of water treatment systems further reduces the home’s environmental impact.

In Vietnam, Vo Trong Nghia (VTN) Architects has been creating biophilic homes as a way to re-engage with nature in high-density cities. The firm’s country-wide residential series “House for Trees” responds to Vietnam’s rapid urban growth by bringing endemic greenery to homes and, in turn, improving the lives of city dwellers. One of these, a house from 2020 built in the northern coastal city of Ha Long, hosts tropical trees across all six stories of its facade. By locating these in a zone between the interior living spaces and the external brise-soleil wall, a naturally controlled environment is created that provides ventilation and shading—both vital in tropical climates.

On the other side of the tropics, in the city of Goiânia in central Brazil, Expedito Bezerra and Lucas Panobianco of architecture studio Bezerra Panobianco were asked to design a house that would remind their client of a coastal oasis. Completed in 2023, Oásis Ventú “is not a house with a garden, it is a garden house,” the architects say. A sinuous bahia marble path running through this central garden connects the surrounding living, dining, and rest spaces. The boundary between inside and outside is blurred; solid barriers are replaced by gauzy linen drapes and lightweight shutters. Greenery and natural materials such as brown storm granite are prevalent throughout the space.

Biophilic homes need not be tropical, of course. Harbored between the twin forks of Long Island, about a three-hour drive east of New York City, Shelter Island hosts a biodiverse habitat with thousands of acres of protected wetlands. For a family of four who had spent time on the island for almost 10 years, KoningEizenberg Architecture designed a vacation retreat in 2022 that could withstand muggy summers and bitingly cold winters, and feel a natural part of its surroundings.

Nestled in between the trees, the 2,500 sq ft house is barely visible from the road. A wood porch extends the length of the house facing the water. Most

of the house is built in uncoated cedar wood, a material that thrives in changing weather conditions and, by nature, has a low carbon footprint. “Inside, the wood is growing richer and deeper in color as it ages; outside, it is quickly turning gray,” say the architects Julie Eizenberg and Hank Koning. Privacy was valued without losing the intake of natural light and outdoor views on to nature. Clerestory windows bring sunlight into the ceramic-tiled kitchen, while wood slats let in the light without compromising the views in the west-facing rooms.

“When we think about biophilia, we have to consider whole ecosystems— plants, insects, microbes, and animals all sharing a living space,” says Italian architect Carlo Ratti. “Thinking about the organisms that occupy the built environment, and about how the built environment can act like an organism, is a big part of our work.” An old farmhouse outside of Parma in Italy’s EmiliaRomagna region was transformed by Carlo Ratti Associati in 2021 into a family home. Dubbed “The Greenary,” the house is built around an enormous 60-yearold ficus tree that “actively contributes to the life of the household,” Ratti says. Skylights, floor-to-ceiling glass windows, and pierced brick walls let light in, while a cantilevered corten steel staircase allows for visual continuity throughout the central triple-height space.

Biophilic architecture is as much about human wellbeing as it is about respect for biodiversity. It is “minimal but impactful actions,” as architect Carrillo says, that will eventually deliver mindful adjustments in the design of the built environment. 0

As Fondation Maeght celebrates its 60th anniversary, Edwin Heathcote looks back at its marriage of art and architecture


Alberto Giacometti’s Femme Debout (Standing Woman), 1959–60, in Fondation Maeght’s courtyard named after the sculptor

There was a time, perhaps 30 years ago, when it would be almost impossible to go into a kitchen or dining room in the more bohemian parts of London or New York, without encountering a framed mid-century poster of an exhibition from Paris’ Galerie Maeght. Those bold blobs of Joan Miró, Georges Braque birds, swirls of Alexander Calder, wispy, enigmatic profiles by Marc Chagall and the rest became a byword for a certain sophistication. And the proceeds and that contemporary cool from the seemingly ubiquitous French gallery seeded one of the first museums of Modern art anywhere: the Fondation Maeght, in Saint-Paul de Vence.

Together, the commercial and the cultural institutions presented a picture of art world “insiderness.” The Parisian gallery and the Provençal gallery: the former a chic cipher of savoir faire, the latter a herb-scented, blue-skied, Mediterranean antidote to the big city; a paradise garden populated by abstract sculptures.

With its eccentric roofs, brilliant light, and shady trees surrounding the building, the Fondation Maeght became a defining Modernist art experience in the 1960s, more intense than MoMA, more than a decade before the Centre Pompidou. And this year it turns 60, an event which is being celebrated by a major expansion. It’s a good moment then, to reflect on this Modernist landmark. Its founder, Aimé Maeght (1906–81) came from a modest background. He trained as a lithographer and had a small shop in Cannes where, one day, the artist Pierre Bonnard popped in to get him to print a program for a Maurice Chevalier concert illustrated with one of his works. Maeght put the lithograph in his display and quickly sold it, encouraging Bonnard to return with more.

At the end of the Second World War, Maeght opened a gallery in Paris and was there to scoop up the works artists had made during their isolation, notably an outpouring of work by Henri Matisse and also Chagall, Calder, Miró, Alberto Giacometti, and Fernand Léger—a virtual roll call of the cool, continental art of the era. Maeght became, arguably, the first major dealer in Modern art, building a stable of artists and developing a global profile. His wife Marguerite played a crucial role in this, as well as the decision to build a foundation to display the couple’s burgeoning— and era-defining—collection of 20th-century European art.

In 1953, Aimé and Marguerite lost their young son Bernard to leukemia, and set about thinking about how they might quell their grief, sublimating it into a project. I spoke to the couple’s granddaughter, the current chairman of the foundation’s council, Isabelle Maeght. “They had bought this piece of land to build a house for Bernard, who was already ill, so that he could breathe fresh air,” she tells me. “When he died they looked around the site and found a ruin: it was an old chapel, only its walls left, and they found it had been dedicated to Saint Bernard. It was the sign they needed.”

The site was in the village of Saint-Paul de Vence, a picturesque heap of red-tiled-roofed buildings tumbling down a hillside between the Alpes Maritime and the Cote d’Azur. It was already a bohemian hangout: its famous hotel, the Colombe d’Or, was the regular haunt of artists and poets including Pablo Picasso, Yves Montand, Jean-Paul Sartre, and Simone de Beauvoir.

“It was Léger who suggested that my grandparents should go to the US to visit the art foundations, which were something that did not exist in France [at the time],” says Maeght. They visited the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia, as well as the Phillips Collection (Washington DC) and the Guggenheim (New York), and they returned to build “the first art foundation in France.”

It was on a visit to the Mallorca studio of Joan Miró that they found their architect. The studio’s Catalan designer was Josep Lluís Sert, a key figure in Modernism who had fled the Franco regime for the US (where he became the influential dean of Harvard’s Graduate School of Design). The Maeghts were enchanted by the light and the quality of space, feeling that the Balearic conditions were similar to their site in southern France.

Sert was already friends with most of the artists he would call upon to collaborate in the creation of Fondation Maeght. It was a remarkable array of 20th-century greats: Léger, Braque, Calder, Giacometti, and Miró. Sert’s closeness to the artists meant they played a pivotal part in the design, notably of the landscape, with their work integrated into the whole rather than being used as ex post-facto ornament, turning the foundation into a Gesamtkunstwerk—a total work.

There is a pool with mosaics by Braque, a courtyard populated by Giacometti’s etiolated figures including the 1960 Walking Man I and II, chunky and surreal sculptures by Miró, a fountain by Pol Bury and a mosaic by Chagall. The spindly furniture was designed by Diego Giacometti, Alberto’s brother, and is still in use. It is a remarkable landscape of art.

Sert’s building for the Maeghts is almost certainly his finest work. Rather than designing one monolithic structure, he created a complex cluster of buildings constituting something like a village with its lanes and piazzas. The main structure, meanwhile, was characterized by an inversion of the vaults he designed for Miró’s studio—in turning them upside down he created a motif reminiscent of the bull or minotaur’s horns which haunt Spanish Modern art, most notably the work of Picasso and Miró. The new buildings were arranged around existing trees (unusual for that era) and their incorporation led to a more integrated place, closer to nature, shaded by the dark green pines.

There is a strict dividing line between commerce and culture: the foundation is completely separate to the Paris gallery but, as Isabelle Maeght says, “without the gallery there would never have been a foundation.” While it may be located

in an area known as a playground of the wealthy, the foundation works hard to ensure it is not exclusive. “We can’t imagine it as a museum in a bunker,” Maeght tells me. “We try to help museums around the world and to spread the work around,” she adds, referring to the way the foundation loans works and organizes shows elsewhere.

There is plenty to spread around. The permanent collection has grown over the years to include major works by Wassily Kandinsky, Barbara Hepworth, Eduardo Chillida, Anna-Eva Bergman, Ellsworth Kelly, Wifredo Lam, and Christo, alongside pieces by all the old friends from Giacometti and Bonnard to Léger and Calder.

To coincide with the 60th anniversary this summer, a major exhibition, Bonnard-Matisse: a friendship, draws on work from the permanent collection as well as pieces on loan to celebrate these two French artists, their contributions to Modern art and their pivotal role in establishing the Maeghts in the art world.

But the biggest moment for the anniversary is the new extension by architect Silvio d’Ascia, opening in June. Comprising a large new gallery beneath the Giacometti courtyard and another, smaller room beside it, the extension will greatly expand the foundation’s capacity to display works from the permanent collection, as well as host events. All spaces, says Maeght, have views of nature and the landscape, and “try to respect the old building.”

The Fondation Maeght remains one of the great pilgrimage sites of Modern art and architecture; a place there to be explored by each subsequent generation. As it begins a new chapter, it looks like it is about to be rediscovered yet again. 0

A variety of new furniture designs brings the comfort of indoor living outdoors, says Adrian Madlener

Patios and porches have become second living and dining rooms, while gardens are being converted into open-air kitchens and even home cinemas—particularly in summer. And as these outdoor areas are increasingly used as extensions of indoor spaces, luxury manufacturers are responding with fresh furnishings and fixtures that can accommodate this newfound flexibility.

“During the pandemic, people started to focus more on their gardens and transforming these spaces into personal sanctuaries and places to entertain responsibly,” says Los Angeles-based landscape architect John Sharp, who is best known for his work on iconic mid-century Modern homes like the John Lautner-designed Garcia House. As with most innovations born out of necessity, this trend is here to stay.

When designing sofas, chairs, tables, and lamps that are as suited for intimate outfits inside as they are alfresco settings, it all comes down to implementing durable materials and accounting for adaptability—but also introducing bold aesthetics, to enhance exterior environments with statement pieces. Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos’ Bombom collection for Roche Bobois, for instance, is colorful, modular, playful, and amorphous in shape while incorporating sturdy, cutting-edge fabrics. The candy-like sofas are joined by equally maximalist carpets that can be used both indoors and outdoors.

“We’re seeing the boundary between interior and exterior become more fluid,” says Chicago native Stephen Burks. Developed out of Burks’ decades-long collaboration with German outdoor furniture brand Dedon, the Kida lounge chair is as much a testament to carefully considered ergonomics as it is to craftsmanship. The cradle-shaped settee’s organic form is defined by an open metal frame wrapped in a thickly-textured and multi-colored

fiber cord by dedicated artisans in Cebu Island, Philippines. A soft cushion insert adds an additional layer of comfort. The new design joins the much-celebrated Kida hanging chaise.

“Outdoor spaces invite us to connect with the natural world and our exteriors, which can also mean our communities,” says Burks. “Consider the porch for example. It’s where you might spend an evening in a swing soaking in the last rays of sun and listening to the breeze in the trees. A porch is also the place you might share an intimate conversation with neighbors accompanied by a cool beverage. Designing for the outdoors requires a heightened sense of generosity.”

Heritage Danish design brand Fritz Hansen has joined the outdoor game with the release of the versatile Povl B Eskildsen-designed Tradition sofa system, produced using FSCcertified core teak and championing graphic simplicity. “As much as form and materials are paramount to good design, so are the ways in which we live—how we use furniture in our everyday lives,” Eskildsen says. “I have created a lot of outdoor furniture and can see how the way we use it differs across countries and cultures, as well as over time.” The seating system can be added to or reduced easily to accommodate gatherings, small or large.

Long gone are the days of cheap plastic or brittle wicker pool chairs. Developed by South African talent Haldane Martin for his namesake label, the Contour outdoor daybed comprises a particularly plush, circular bed with a layered rim backrest and a canopy with fabric crafted in a basket-weaving technique. The indooroutdoor Fiji upholstery used, from Spanish brand Crevin, is UV-resistant and easy to clean.

Translating an existing design for outdoor use is more and more common. Boutique Los Angeles furniture brand Kalon Studios recently launched its first outdoor Material StudiesRugosa collection.

Simmering and Johannes Pauwen switched out sustainably harvested western sugar pine for powder-coated aluminum, bronzed glass, and GreenGuard-certified, outdoor-rated textiles. Utilizing long-lasting and durable components is as important as responsibly sourcing regenerative and low-carbon-footprint materials. Holding on to furniture for as long as possible is essential.

Sustainability is a key factor, but one that doesn’t have to come at the expense of luxury or creative expression. Celebrated Spanish-Italian designer Patricia Urquiola recently launched the biodegradable yet water-resistant Alder collection with Danish brand Mater. “It features simple, threedimensional objects that can also be used as stools and tables,” she describes. “We wanted to give the blend of Matek—a mixture of upcycled sawdust, coffee bean shells, and binding bioplastic—a certain texture, which makes the material more agile, clay-like, and natural. Alder is a family of trees that feature simple conical lines, so we’re referencing nature and geometry in equal measure.” The durable outdoor/indoor products come in beige, brown, light green, and terracotta hues.

Meanwhile, Belgian producer Ethnicraft recently introduced 100% solid, black-tainted, and brushed teak to its gamut of outdoor tables, including the Quatro series. This finish is a sophisticated alternative to other natural materials, maintaining sustainability while offering sleek elegance.

What would an outdoor dining room be without light? Up-and-coming New York studio In Common With recently released the Dune Table Lamp, which works as well outdoors as it does indoors. Available in five weatherresistant finishes, the dim-to-warm LED fixture has a whimsical yet sophisticated quality.

From vintage markets to private art collections, Linda Boronkay discusses the inspiration behind her carefully curated and colorful interiors

Linda Boronkay’s characterful design for a London home, where retro touches include a sunken sofa, complemented by a 1970s abstract tapestry by Claude Prevost

Ican’t stop staring at Linda Boronkay’s earrings. Over coffee, the Hungarian interior designer is telling me about her new residential project in Richmond, southwest London, while her gold, looping earrings speak volumes about her sense of style. They are dainty but bold. Classic but quirky. And vintage, given to her by her mother.

“I grew up in vintage markets,” says the former design director of Soho House, who set up her own design studio in 2020. Born in Budapest, her father was an architect and her mother an art teacher-turneddesign journalist. “We lived in a house that my dad designed and built,” she says. “It had lovely high ceilings, archways, and columns, and was filled with plants and animals—as well as antiques, art, and crazy stuff that my mum bought. It was quite romantic.”

Today, Boronkay credits her mother with fostering the “fearlessness for pairing objects and colors” that is the cornerstone of her eponymous practice. A case in point is her elegant and whimsical overhaul of a Victorian house in Richmond, which she designed in collaboration with Michael Jones Architects. It combines original features with “a 1970s vibe,” courtesy of period pieces such as a pair of mirrored bedside cabinets. In the living room, a sunken sofa is boldly retro, especially when paired with a 1970s abstract tapestry by Claude Prevost (cleverly mounted to conceal the television).

Bold moves

Art is central to the whole scheme. The owners’ collection includes a portrait of David Bowie by British photographer Terry O’Neill, placed in a hallway; a lithograph by Max Ernst ( Forêt et soleil , 1956) sits alongside the living room shelving; and there’s an Egon Schiele print ( Portrait Study: Mrs E. Sch.Verlag Eduard Strache, 1920) in the main bedroom.

“One of the first design decisions was: ‘Where are we gonna put the Grayson Perry?’” says Boronkay of the large and vibrant limitededition tapestry by the British Turner Prizewinning artist, playfully titled Large Expensive Abstract Painting, 2019. With its rich swathes of reds, pinks, and blues nodding to 20th-century Abstract Expressionism, while incorporating a map of London, the artwork “was absolutely the starting point for the color scheme of the drawing room.”

The statement piece is offset with subtly off-white walls, while its bright hues are echoed around the room: in a midnight-blue velvet sofa (a design by Boronkay) and a glossy red laminate and chrome sideboard—another 1970s find, by Italian designer Willy Rizzo. The design choices are eclectic. A pair of boxy-on-the-outside, curvy-on-the-inside armchairs are by Polish-Brazilian Modernist Jorge Zalszupin. And to one side of the marble fireplace is a bespoke bookcase, playfully cast in plaster, inspired by the sculptures of Rachel Whiteread.

“It’s a Narnia moment,” says Boronkay of the feature that swings open to reveal a hidden wine cellar. “You come from the bright, light drawing room into this jewel-colored secret cave, with Zellige tiles and smoked-oak elements. We wanted it to feel a bit naughty.” Overall, however, the word Boronkay gleefully uses to sum up the family home—from the arched windows of the

kitchen extension to the crisp and chic blackand-white master bathroom—is “ballsiness.”

Currently, her 14-strong, London-based studio has an impressive roster of projects in the works, predominantly across Europe, from five-star hotels to a new restaurant and show apartment, as well as “a beautiful project in Beirut,” she says of a trio of heritage buildings that are being restored to house a restaurant, art gallery, and members’ club.

So far, so Soho House? Boronkay’s nearly five years’ experience at the renowned global chain of hotels and members’ clubs is certainly a valuable calling card. “People really buy into the Soho House aesthetic [because] it’s colorful and fun, comfortable, and atmospheric,” she says. Yet while there are crossovers between her own approach and that of her former employer—“the layered look, the warm light, the vintage pieces, the quirky, rule-breaking elements”—its “English club look, with the Chesterfield sofas, is definitely not something that we do,” she asserts.

Boronkay’s final results are undoubtedly distinct, especially when it comes to private homes. She is currently working on residential projects from the UK to Australia—and all but one have been anchored by existing art collections. “Most of our clients will give us a blank canvas when it comes to furniture and lighting, but their selection of artwork is an incredible way to start to build and layer a scheme,” she says. “The style, the colors, and the medium can drive the overall design language of a room.” 0 Victoria Woodcock is a London-based writer covering art, design, and craft, and a contributing editor to the Financial Times’ HTSI magazine

Brazilian skateboarder Leticia Bufoni, who participated in Tokyo 2020, built a skatepark in the backyard of her Los Angeles home. From Team USA, swimmer Cody Miller trains in his own outdoor swimming pool, and rock climber Colin Duffy uses a climbing wall in his basement. British tennis player Andy Murray has a tennis court on his rural estate in England. But you don’t have to be an Olympian to enjoy top-quality sporting and fitness facilities at home.

With a continuing boom in the culture of wellness, and mounting scientific evidence of the physical and psychological benefits of sport and exercise in everyday life, having at-home facilities such as swimming pools, tennis courts or basketball courts is a boon to personal health and lifestyle, as well as the desirability of a property.

It is an idea that has been enthusiastically embraced at this collection of properties across the US, Canada, and Italy. Some even come fitted out with unexpected facilities—from an indoor ice hockey arena to a bowling alley.

It is at a stunning property in the verdant village of Old Westbury, New York, where a bowling alley can be found—along with a tennis court, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, par-3 golf hole, and indoor basketball court. “The owners are avid golfers and swimmers—the facilities allow them to swim and keep their golf game sharp year-round,” says Jason Friedman, senior global real estate advisor at Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty. “As far as property value goes, this home’s amenities go above and beyond anything that’s been built on the Gold Coast of Long Island.” A sports lover would never

get bored here, but there is much to love beyond the amenities, with a large, classically detailed stone mansion overlooking landscaped gardens providing a perfect place to relax or entertain.

Over in Italy, a fairytale property in the Tuscan province of Grosseto features a tennis court, golf course, swimming pool, stables, and paddock, set over an impressive 84 acres. There is space to host all the tennis and riding partners you could possibly want, with the property including 17 bedrooms across buildings that blend seamlessly with the cypress tree-studded landscape.

In Palm Beach Country, Florida, an equestrian’s dream comes true in the shape of a home accompanied by a 28-stall stable block. While the main house benefits from an outdoor pool, gardens, and lake, the large stable building includes tack rooms, lounges, bathrooms, wash racks, and grooming stalls, alongside the custom-built stalls to accommodate horses, all set around a generous outdoor riding arena.

Meanwhile, in the bayside Canadian town of Collingwood, Ontario, a 24-acre property features a private indoor ice hockey arena—which can be converted to a pickleball court when desired. The state-of-the-art hockey team changing rooms, alongside a viewing gallery with full bar, will make you feel like you’re a VIP at a professional match.

And in Lafayette, California, a property with an outdoor swimming pool and tennis court is as attractive for lavish summer parties as it is for daily workouts. Inside, the home has its own luxury theater with a big screen, and a games room featuring six televisions. There is, after all, no need to become an Olympic athlete when it’s possible to watch them compete from the comfort of your home. Francesca Perry is an editor and writer
