WELCOME

Dear Readers, desire for uniqueness is as deep-rooted in human beings as their sense of self. More or less everyone would like to attain this exclusivity. In bygone eras sacred buildings such as pyramids, temples and cathedrals created exclusivity for various faith and religious groups, and assembled many individuals into communities. In today’s age of secularization, however, it is unique buildings with which people are looking to ensure their own exclusivity. The market in luxury real estate has provided a pertinent example of this ambition for a number of years. In numerous regions around the world, luxury buildings have been developed at unique locations, and have at times fetched exceptional prices. This happened in Sardinia last year, where we were able to record prices for second homes of up to 300,000 euros per square meter of living space, on the island’s famous Cala di Volpe and Romazzino bays. Shortly after that, the most expensive sale of a residential property to date was recorded in London: a two-floor penthouse near Hyde Park sold for a total of around 162 million euros. This translates into a price of 150,000 euros per square meter of living space. However, this total purchase price looks like it will be beaten itself this year – at the “Tour Odéon” double skyscraper in Monaco, where there is a penthouse for sale for more than 300 million euros. In the slipstream of these “beacon” property sales, numerous new buildings and locations, which lay claim to exclusivity, have been developed in many sought-after vacation destinations on the Mediterranean, in Florida, in the Hamptons and in Martha’s Vineyard, as well as in popular ski resorts and large urban areas around the world. In order to help you get a little closer to this exclusivity and to fulfilling the dream of your own home, in this edition, we once again showcase a selection of superb pieces of real estate from around the world. Sincerely

WELCOME

Yes, yes, yesss! As a little energy boost for the coming year, in this issue we showcase several exciting personalities and their unusual, inspiring lives. British yacht designer Ed Dubois already dreamed of sailing the vast oceans while growing up in a landlocked urban area. New Yorker Samantha Boardman was slightly bored with her life as the daughter of very well-to-do parents so – much to their surprise – she studied medicine and now pursues a career as a web psychologist. Brazilian architect Marcio Kogan uses concrete, one of the heaviest and least charming building materials, to create the most graceful houses. Those who are drawn to the mountains should read our travel story about the most beautiful, secluded ski chalets. Finally, our feature on surfing is dedicated to all those who have been dreaming of catching a wave, endless freedom and adventure. We wish you a happy 2015…

… and hope you enjoy the new GG.

THANK YOU CONTRIBUTORS

Close to the wind 

Rock & Fashion  

BRENDAN CANNON  Annie Lennox, Liza Minnelli, Willem Dafoe, Glenn Close, Diane Kruger, Angelina Jolie, Michael Jackson – the list of celebrities that Brendan Cannon has dressed for photo shoots reads like a Who’s Who of successful musicians and actors of the last few years. The native New Yorker, who already developed a fondness for music and fashion as a child, works for large TV networks and magazines, among them Vogue, Rolling Stone and Vanity Fair. He was also the stylist for GG’s Samantha Boardman story.

On the road …

  MARGIT KOHL  For over 20 years, the travel journalist has been writing about how traveling changes people’s perception of the world and themselves. She edited the travel section of the Süddeutsche Zeitung for many years and was deputy editor of ADAC’s travel magazine. Margit Kohl has published several illustrated books and today works as a freelance journalist and writer. Living in Munich, the mountains and all the enchanting chalets and ski lodges are practically on her doorstep. So, who better to examine the magic of that “chalet feeling” for GG, and to reveal which chalets are the best to rent (page 18).

Consumate creative  

ALEXANDER KAHL  Hamburg native Alexander Kahl is the latest reinforcement to the GG graphics team. The 28-year-old studied communication design in the Hanseatic city, and loves its diversity and wandering through the city center on day trips or photographic forays. In addition to his hobby of photography, he is currently learning to play the guitar and has even purchased an electric one. Interior design is his other predilection, and despite not being a tradesman, Alexander Kahl’s dream is to built an eco-house on wheels for himself … Furthermore, his list of future travel destinations is extensive: for example Japan, Australia, Iceland and Norway to see the aurora borealis in real life. Welcome, Alexander!

DIRK HERPEL  For ten years, Hamburg-resident Dirk Herpel was the editor-in-chief of the German surfing magazine. To this day almost all of his projects are related to aquatic sports: cliff diving in Hamburg, windsurfing events and stand-up ­paddleboard competitions around the globe. If the waves are right, there is a good chance that he and his family can be spotted in northern Denmark. After all, surfers call the area around the small fishing village of Klitmøller “cold Hawaii” for a reason. For GG, Dirk Herpel explores the fascination with surfing, starting on page 60

Lucky bros. 

IAN & ERICK REGNARD  The two siblings were born in Mauritius, and to this day Ian and Erick have a love for water. They even say that no matter where they are, they can still hear the ocean outside their front door. They understand each other intuitively and when it comes to photography, they spur each other on to get the best shots. The brothers try to utilize natural light as much as possible and go to enormous lengths to create perfect picture compositions. Proof of this starts on page 60: whether it be their impressive wave motifs or their portraits of the world’s top surfers. As part of our story about surfing, you can enjoy some of the most stunning images by Ian and Erick Regnard.

Almost Tyrolean

  SVEN MÜLLER  Sauerland native Sven Müller has been working in real estate sales for over 20 years. At first in Düsseldorf, and for more than 10 years now in Kitzbühel, one of the most heavenly winter sport resorts in the Alps. “To be able to live and work here is an absolute privilege, for which I am very grateful every day,” says the 40-year-old. A Tyrolean by choice, he also loves the traditional architectural style of the local country houses, like the historical farmhouse, which we showcase in our for-sale “At Home” story (page 68). It is a stunning example of the local idiosyncrasies. The building, which is over 100 years old, has recently been renovated by tradesmen committed to traditional methods and designs.

Series 8 ovens make the ideal assistants in the kitchen, honing your cooking to perfection. There are three main functions dedicated to roasting and baking: the PerfectBake sensor, PerfectRoast thermometer and 4D heat. The patented PerfectBake sensor measures the moisture levels of the cake or pastries you’re baking and automatically adjusts the baking process accordingly. Once it is baked through, the oven turns off by itself. With PerfectRoast, a thermometer probe measures the core temperature of meat and fish at three different points, thus preventing false measurements resulting from any cavities or fi llings. The new 4D heat feature distributes warm air particularly evenly inside the oven, achieving truly excellent results on each of the oven’s four levels. Another highlight is the new steam function. It makes sure that dishes are cooked with a crisp finish on the outside whilst remaining succulent and moist on the inside. And if you need to prepare a meal quickly, you can simply use the integrated microwave. Those who require even more perfection might want to consider a steam oven also featured as part of Series 8. It features a full integrated steam cooker, thereby offering steam combination cooking and pure steam cooking. ing

Finery Under Foot Carpets bring warmth, comfort and character to a room. Those by CAP are absolute masterpieces with an exquisite elegance.

R

ugs are experiencing a renaissance. Wooden and stone floors might be very attractive

aesthetically, but they don’t automatically make a home particularly homely. A carpet on the other hand can be a wonderful way of introducing structure to any room: a carpet is laid on the floor, on this carpet stands a sofa, next to the sofa a side table and on it a lamp. It acts like an island in the room. There are many different ways of applying this principle of adapting a carpet to fit an interior. Ulrike Broermann, owner of the Düsseldorf-based company CAP, combines classical elements found in oriental carpets with contemporary and minimalist influences in her designs. The philosophy behind the motif plays a key role for the interior designer, and one thing is also clear: a carpet is slow-growing. Row by row and centimetre for centimetre, meaning the pattern emerges gradually like the printed page from an inkjet printer. CAP carpets are made of 100% natural materials, 80% cotton and 20% pure wool. There is an anti-slip layer on the rear side. The carpets, as robust as they are striking, are produced in nine different sizes in Belgium. This “Made in Europe” pledge guarantees short delivery times and quality of the highest standard.

The Beauty of Materials

2 1

Why did Sebastian Herkner become a designer? He wanted to create things with his hands, make new discoveries and translate his ideas and experiences into products. These have earned the native of Offenbach an international reputation. 1 Lamp “Bell Light” with various mix-and-match modules (ClassiCon) 2 Sebastian Herkner designs objects which incorporate different cultural contexts, new technologies and traditional craftsmanship 3 Wall clock “Felt Clock” (LEFF Amsterdam) 4 The metal top of “Bell Table” appears to float on its base (ClassiCon) 5 Sofa “Arnhem” (De Vorm) 6 Armchair “Talo” (Sancal) 7 “Banjooli” table (Moroso) 8 Side table “Salute” (La Chance) 9 Floor lamp “Oda” with a mouth-blown glass corpus (Pulpo) 10 Is it a side table, is it a vase? “Container” (Pulpo) 11 Armchair “Coat” and baskets “Bask” (both designed for Moroso).

You often work with glass, even when you are designing furniture such as “Bell Table” for ClassiCon. What is so fascinating about glass? Glass is a traditional material that is in-

fluenced by various parameters during the manufacturing process. To create the glass base for the piece “Bell Table” you need about ten years of glass-blowing experience. It appeals to me the way unexpected things can occur during the development of a design, and the various different states: sandy, fluid, brittle or delicate. For Moroso you designed the “Banjooli” collection: chairs and tables that have been woven by hand. Are you a big fan

“Banjooli” is part of Moroso’s “M’ Afrique” collection. The furniture is made by local craftsmen in Dakar, Senegal. I have a high regard for working closely with artisans. They have the knowledge and the capability to turn my visions into reality. I also make a point of working with authentic materials such as glass, porcelain, metal and wood, which share the characteristic that they age well. My working relationship with Rosenthal is something very close to my heart because it allows me to collaborate with a traditional German brand and take craftsmanship to a very high level.

of handcrafted objects?

How do you conceptualize your designs – on paper in the traditional way,

It all begins in my head. Sometimes it takes me months to bring an idea to fruition. Once it takes concrete shape, I get it down on paper. Then we work as a team to create small models that describe the details and the character of the product. These models are neither made to scale nor are they finished. This is when the interaction begins between drawings, 3D animations and models. I wait until I have a full-scale model in front of me before I give it to the manufacturer, and we finalize it together. How would you describe your style? Personal, honest, responsible and enduring. How important is functionality? Every product should fulfi l its function, but that should not be what the overall design is based on. To me, it’s just as important to know where, how and from which materials my products are made. Responsibility is just as important as functionality. What does your home look like? My studio and my apartment are both in the same building. I live with my designs and with those of colleagues to whom I have a connection. I have also collected a large number of souvenirs while traveling, like art, carpets and porcelain. What have your influences been? A variety of things: my childhood in the country, attending the University of Art and Design in Offenbach, but also daily experiences and moments of interaction with my surroundings. You enjoy design because …? It’s my passion. UA

to the wise words of the beautiful and always elegant Samantha Boardman, life takes on the brilliant colors of a rainbow, even on a gray Manhattan day. The practicing psychiatrist who sees patients at her office in Manhattan during the week, has a new website called Positive Prescription. “Last year I decided to go back to school. I enrolled in the Master of Applied Positive Psychology program at the University of Pennsylvania, which was developed by Dr. Martin Seligman, the founder of the science focusing on the positive side of psychology. It was a tremendous amount of work, much harder than I expected,” laughs Samantha, “but it inspired my website.” That was the moment that Positive Prescription was born. “I had started noticing in recent years how we tend to focus on the negative in psychiatry and psychology, how it’s always about addressing what’s referred to as a ‘chief complaint.’ We fixate on what’s wrong: my kids did this or my husband did that… What I hope to do in my blog is to change people’s perspective. To help them see the good in things and realize that they are not alone. Every crisis is an opportunity; something you can learn from, even if you think everything looks dark and hopeless. Don’t get me wrong – I’m a fan of negative emotions, they are very important. People who lead stress-free lives are pretty boring. What I’m talking about is how to deal with the stress in your life, and how to recognize what is good stress.” oing against the grain could be the motto by which this lovely daughter of an illustrious family has always lived. She was born in Johannesburg, but moved for a couple of years to England as a small child with her parents – her mother, Pauline Pitt, the “Queen of Palm Beach,” an interior designer and the great-great-granddaughter of George F. Baker, the founder of today’s Citibank; her father a hedge fund manager – before later moving to New York. She and her sister Serena, who made a career for herself as New York’s most successful real estate agent, were once the “Princesses of New York.”

But soon, both girls got tired of spending all their time at parties and society gatherings. “After graduating from high school, I traveled the world for a year. Then I worked for a while at Harper’s Bazaar – and did all the other things that were considered correct in the social circle in which I grew up. But during my first year of college I suddenly realized that I was more interested in science than in history, which I was majoring in. But I was also interested in the way

sometimes had a pity party for myself, but I always felt I was doing something meaningful. That’s what helped me keep going. It was a very grueling time, but looking back, I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. I remember how amazing it was to receive a letter from the family of someone in the hospital who had had a nice experience. It was a thank-you letter they sent me after their mother had passed away. I carried it around for months until it was all crumpled in my pocket. It was like a talisman – a reminder of why I was doing what I was doing.”

“I concentrate on what is good about my patients,” says the Harvard graduate and mother of two children Dr. Samantha Boardman.

history and science were connected. That’s when it first crossed my mind that I could go to medical school and become a doctor – and make more of a difference than I had ever dreamed. How did my parents react? Well, they were pretty confused. My mother kept asking: ‘Are you sure you want to be a nurse?’ But I didn’t care. I knew from an early age that I had to work really hard – and it didn’t matter if it was on the tennis court or in school – in order to make up for not being the smartest person in the room. I knew that I could excel and do just as well as those who were more gifted if I worked hard enough.” When her friends on the Upper East Side went out partying, she stayed home studying for medical school. “Sure, I

Wives no longer filled their days organizing dinner parties or accompanying their husbands to charity events. Much more often, you began to meet women who expected much more from themselves. It was Tory, too, who urged her friend Samantha to start her own blog. “She kept asking me to write for her website because she was interested in what I was doing. I never really thought anyone would read the things I wrote, but Tory kept after me. And then I was surprised to find we even had some hedge fund managers following us,” recalls Samantha Boardman, smiling. She only appears in public on special occasions with her powerful husband Aby Rosen, the well-known real estate tycoon and art collector, who is just as famous for his amazing parties as he is for owning the most coveted real estate in Manhattan. “Many people think we go out every night, but we’re homebodies. We’ll take the dog for a walk around the block in the evening and then have dinner with the children.” Keeping your phone in your purse rather than on the table, shutting off the computer for a while and paying more attention to the people – and the world – around you are just some of the pieces of advice that Doctor Sam gives her fans – tips and tricks which she presents on her website as a ­“Daily Dosage” or a “Mind Tonic.” – “It’s the little things that keep us in the present, that make our lives so much more worthwhile.

his exclusive manor house was built in 1911. It is located in prestigious park-like grounds that look out onto wonderful rural surroundings that include the meadows of the neighbouring stables. Keen attention was paid to the conservation of the property’s original charm during modernisation work that took place between 1997 and 1999. Period features dating back to the year of construction such as

the beautiful, large sliding doors and the other classically inspired room doors have been preserved and carefully restored. The sheer dimensions of the interiors and the high ceilings of 3.2 metres help to bring about a special atmosphere within. A beautiful, mature garden, set amidst the glorious natural idyll of the rolling meadows all around, also benefits greatly from two delightful and rare pyramid-shaped oak trees.

his former mining inspection quarters is situated in a beautiful location on the southern foothills of the Osterwald region. The listed property was opened in 1858. Seemingly innocuous from the understated sleekness of the roadside façade, entry is like transportation to another world. The main body of the building, structured by pilasters, has extrahigh ceilings thanks to the roof gable aligned along the middle of the

property, conveying a harmonious ambience typical for the period it was built in. The terrace, elevated off the ground like a fortification, is a particularly appealing highlight. From here, the views sweep over the garden grounds. Symmetrical steps lead down on both sides to the first garden level, giving on to the delightful main terrace laid with sandstone flagging. The foundations for the harmonious garden date back as far as 1701.

Polo Cup 2014 at “Son Coll” More than 600 international guests attended the sixth Engel & Völkers Polo Cup in Majorca. The tournament and party took place at Christian Völkers’ private finca. Dress code: all white.

I

in Majorca’s social calendar: Christian Völkers’ 600 guests, among them top models Nieves Álvarez, Laura Ponte, Eugenia Silva, Antonia Dell’Atte and fashion designer Ágatha Ruiz de la Prada, enjoyed an evening full of surprises, music and cultured conversation. Renowned sponsors fielded the six polo teams: Engel & Völkers, Cartier, Vertu, Bentley, La Martina and Forest Lakes/Eagles Paradise. The host himself climbed into the saddle on all three tournament days, riding one of the polo ponies up to 60 kilometers an hour. After two days of preliminary rounds, the E&V team ultimately won the cup. This year the tournament took place once again under the motto “It’s time to share.” At a charity auction, guests donated a total of over 45,000 euros. The sale of limited edition silk scarves with exclusive prints by Majorcan artist Jaume Vilardell, which raised money for the E&V charity, was also a big success. All proceeds will directly benefit the E&V charity’s elementary school project in Togo.

Haute Horlogerie

As part of the 71st Venice International Film Festival, Jaeger-LeCoultre hosted a dinner at the Scuola Grande di San Rocco, at which both the arts of watchmaking and filmmaking were celebrated.

T

of the “Hubris Artistica” collection of watches and because of its long-standing, close partnership with the Venice Film Festival, Jaeger-LeCoultre invited select guests to an exclusive gala dinner at the Scuola Grande di San Rocco in the lagoon city’s San Polo neighborhood. For the last ten years, Jaeger-LeCoultre has been supporting the fi lm industry, which has an intimate connection with watchmaking, given the ingenuity and the artistic and technical sophistication which both craftsmen and fi lmmakers have to demonstrate again and again. The new collection consisting of twelve gorgeous timepieces is dedicated to the so-called “métiers rares,” exceptional areas of haute horlogerie craftsmanship, which attest to the know-how of the Swiss manufacturer. The collection showcases top technical feats in the crafts of enamel work, engraving, skeletonizing and stone setting. During the dinner, which was also attended by many prominent figures from the international fi lm industry – among them Milla Jovovich and Jaeger-LeCoultre brand ambassador Clive Owen – CEO Daniel Riedo announced that Jaeger-LeCoultre would in future directly support the Scuola Grande di San Rocco. This would be done in order to preserve the unique art and history of the former friary of Saint Roch of Montpellier, with targeted measures and donations. A three-year project dedicated to the restoration of the historical monument, which is close to the hearts of many Venetians, was thus initiated.

CLOSE UP Printing Things

C. Warnier, D. Verbruggen/Unfold, S. Ehmann, R. Klanten, Gestalten, approx. € 40

Printing things out sounds like a boring process. But what if your printer could produce jewelry, shoes, food or the toothbrush you forgot to bring? 3D printing might seem like the preserve of technology geeks, but soon we may all be using our printers until they overheat. This book showcases what can already be done and what will be possible soon, plus exciting projects and their designers.

Small Architecture Now! Philip Jodidio, Taschen, approx. € 40

Smart, sustainable, refined and designed to perfection. On 416 pages, this volume showcases the smallest buildings by architects such as Pritzker Prize winners Toyo Ito and Álvaro Siza, and artists such as Ólafur Elíasson. Among the most amazing small spaces are: a Wendy house for kids in Trondheim, dollhouses designed for Calvin Klein and fantastic vacation hideaways!

The Outsiders

Jeff rey Bowman, Sven Ehmann, Robert Klanten, Gestalten, approx. € 40

Silence. Then the sounds of rustling and lapping water. Another long silence, punctuated only by the sound of your breath. The Outsiders explores the new yearning for the natural world and adventure. The next generation of globetrotters comes equipped with new projects, and the latest products. This volume enthralls readers with images that stir our wanderlust: tree houses, sunsets, tents and interviews with the key players in this industry. Let’s go! BOO

A Virgin Island

Russell James, TeNeues, Collector’s Edition, € 2,000

Somewhere in the Caribbean lies an enchanted isle that star photographer Russell James was granted access to – Necker Island! Amid soft sands, crystal-clear waters and tropical foliage, James shot uniquely romantic and sensual photos, featuring among others Gisele Bündchen and Alessandra Ambrosio. How could Richard Branson, the owner of this paradise, possibly have said no to that?

A stylish slant. Munich-based label Apartment 8 presents new, quirky takes on bookcases, here the “Only Book” model, as seen on schoenbuch.com.

Regarding Women Elliott Erwitt, TeNeues, approx. € 80

Elliott Erwitt is the ultimate photographer. He is celebrated for his documentary and commercial photography, as well as for his pictures of Marilyn Monroe. But Monroe was not his only subject, as is demonstrated by Regarding Women – a homage to women, from movie stars to “the girl next door.” This volume of portraits is as sensitive and entertaining as it is respectful, and paints a picture of individuals that will resonate with all women. It also includes many previously unreleased photos. Beautiful!

Epicurean Journeys

Joshua David Stein (Introduction), Assouline, approx. € 34

160 pages of culinary journeys around the world! The latest volume of Assouline’s hotel stories also features recipes from the most exclusive hotel kitchens – from NYC to Vietnam and Peru. Locals like Elettra Wiedemann, José Andres and Ruth Reichl talk about their favorite hotels and get everyone in the mood for a curry, dulce de FC leche or winter oysters. A must-have for gourmets.

CLOSE UP PERSONAL

The sails are set!

F

rank O. Gehry is one of the world’s most famous contemporary architects and among the most renowned exponents of deconstructivism. Every design by this native of Canada draws on the interplay between seemingly incompatible shapes, and on the creative tension between art and functionality. The latest example of this is the new building for the private art collection of the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris, which features glass elements curved with millimeter precision. Despite its height of 25 meters, the structure nestles into the natural surroundings of the Bois de Boulogne, one of the world’s largest urban parks. His initial ideas for the building were influenced by the lightness of the glass structures and garden architecture of the late 19th century, says the star architect. Thus, twelve large sails consisting of over 3,600 panes of glass now give the exhibition building the appearance of a huge ship. Below the sails is a structure composed of a series of white blocks, the so-called iceberg. Eleven rooms host permanent exhibitions of contemporary art, as well as temporary shows. The “Fondation” building also comprises a 350-seat auditorium, conference and function rooms, and educational facilities. The terraces on the upper floors are open to visitors who would like to enjoy views of the park. The 20-hectare green area, which was created in the 19th century, will also feature works of art: the Fondation Louis Vuitton has commissioned twelve artists – among them Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, Anish Kapoor, James Turrell and Richard Serra – to create sculptures for the park.UA
