Is there a more appropriate place than an observatory to begin a stellar new chapter in the history of watchmaking?

Inaugurated in 1910 in Germany’s renowned watchmaking town of Glashütte, the neglected ruin of the observatory building was rebuilt by the company WEMPE some 100 years later. The establishment of the only testing facility

for chronometers according to the German industrial standard and of the WEMPE watchmaking school make Glashütte Observatory nowadays the perfect production site for the wristwatch chronometers of the WEMPE GLASHÜTTE i/SA collection.

The first watchmaker to land a moon on a man.

The first wristwatch chronometers tested according to strict German DIN standards at the Glashütte Observatory. WEMPE ZEITMEISTER Moon Phase in a stainless steel case with selfwinding movement.

WELCOME

B Dear Reader,

eing successful is a good feeling – and sharing your success with others feels even better! For the last 30 years, Engel & Völkers has been one of the leading global real estate companies. Apart from focusing on the beautiful things in life, our success also obliges us to look out into the world and to help those in greatest need. I have long had the desire to give back some of my good fortune and success. To me, economic activity and social responsibility go hand in hand. Through a

family friend, I became aware of an educational project in West Africa, in the Togolese village of Agbetiko. In May 2009, the foundations of the L’école privée Engel & Völkers were laid. Working with an established local partner, it was possible to inaugurate the elementary school in Agbetiko on September 6, 2010. The construction of the school had been made possible by many generous donations from our network. We consciously chose a school when considering projects, as education is one of the most important stepping-stones to a better future for children in Africa. Togo is among the poorest countries in the world and has very high levels of illiteracy. All of these factors have meant that the school project has become very close to my heart. In 2014, we celebrated the inauguration of a second school building. Today, roughly 120 children in five grades are taught math, and reading and writing in French, the country’s official language. I am very pleased and exceptionally proud to see our charity develop and progress in such a positive way. This is why I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all those who have made a donation so far, for their generosity and for their faith and belief in our elementary school project. I would also like to thank my wife Ninon, who has personally been providing unstinting support for the work of the Engel & Völkers Charity on many trips to Agbetiko. Discover other exciting and inspiring charity projects on the following pages of this edition of GG and – as always – a selection of fantastic real estate from around the world. Sincerely

WELCOME

Fantastic Philanthropists! I first met Katharina Harf at a dinner in New York a few years ago. A beautiful and charming young woman, this modern hero captivated me with her personal story instantly. For 13 years she has been working for DKMS, the non-profit organization her father founded 25 years ago, and that she brought to the United States from Germany. With the biggest database of five million bone marrow donors worldwide, Katharina now saves lives every day by helping blood cancer patients find their perfect match. I was so impressed by her career that I told her: one day I would love to tell your story. Embedded in an entire edition of GG focusing on her and other inspiring personalities whose purpose is to give. So here it is! The new GG totally dedicated to charities, foundations and philanthropists. From the world’s most generous and famous ones like Melinda Gates, who with her husband Bill, is investing their wealth in finding cures for diseases and banishing hunger forever, to those who prefer to give in a more discreet manner and only rarely give interviews, like two-times America’s Cup winner Ernesto Bertarelli. Together with his family foundation, the unusual Swiss entrepreneur is now focusing on the crisis of our oceans and speaks about Chagos – his new project in the Indian Ocean. Rarely has working on an issue been so enjoyable but so humbling at the same time. Happy Holidays & a lovely New Year,

THANK YOU CONTRIBUTORS

Empathetic 

NINA STRUVE After training as a photographer, Nina Struve gained a lot of experience working on international productions, which awakened her passion for photographing people in their homes or workplaces. The Hamburg native has a knack for capturing the atmosphere of a place and for depicting her protagonists in it in an uncontrived way. For GG, she met with Dana ­Schweiger (page 63).

New Generation 

MORITZ HEWECKER

Here he is: Moritz, the latest addition to the GG publishing family. Since his birth on June 30, he has taken up most of publishing director Mirko Hewecker’s spare time. So, Dad has had to put his other hobbies on the back burner, like traveling (his favorite destination is the Maldives) and sports, especially working out and tennis. Soon, Moritz will accompany Dad everywhere – asleep or awake ....

Dream big  

Dream team 

ENRICO CERESOLE & KATIA COMETTO

Enrico Ceresole and Katia Cometto live where others go on vacation – in Imperia and San Remo. The parents of twins take advantage of all Liguria has to offer and spend their leisure time in the sea or by the seaside – surfing, diving and sailing …. As E&V license partners, they also sell dream properties like the “Castello di Mortola” (page 70).

TAMI K. SHIREY Nothing and no one can stand between you and your dreams, unless you let them. True to this maxim, 22-year-old Tami K. Shirey from L.A. has already made a name for herself as a make-up artist. Over the last year, she has been doing our cover star Katharina Harf’s make-up. Tami says: “She has such a big heart. There isn’t a more loveable or beautiful person than her.” And so Tami, too, will be donating bone marrow to DKMS (page 35).

Inquisitive 

UTE LAATZ Ute Laatz never gets bored of meeting people and loves hearing their life stories. For GG, the author of many articles and a book on interior design interviewed Carolin Dekeyser. Laatz was deeply impressed by the project the young woman had set up for local people in the Philippines.

Welcome 

JANINA REEGER

Janina Reeger joined the GG design team in July. The native of Lübeck moved to Hamburg, first to train as a teacher, then working as a multimedia producer. She has a particular penchant for interior design and loves spending time with her son. On the weekends, she often travels to the coast in her camper to go kite surfing.

The Italian capital boasts structures left over from the Roman Empire, the Renaissance and the Baroque era that are spectacular in many ways. However, public funds for the upkeep of Rome’s unique buildings are tight and several of the landmarks are in a poor state of repair. Private backers – some of them native Romans, others from abroad – are getting involved to help the eternal city remain eternal.

MADONNA MIA! Tinos, the fourth-largest island in the Cyclades, has been known as the “Island of Madonna” since an icon of the Virgin Mary was discovered there in 1823. It is also where Kois Architecture has built a 200 m2 house that blends in with the stark landscape, overlooks the sea and has a breathtaking infinity pool.

Eyes Open! FAVORITE BUNNY Serbian artist Natalija Ribovic called her temporary installation in the mirrored ballroom of the Schaezlerpalais in Augsburg “Silverio Rabbit.” The reclining silver bunny produces a myriad of shimmering reflections in this Rococo space.

HONEST WORK The name might be confusing, but the word Alki means chair. The story of the Alki chair factory began in French Basque Country in 1981. In the village of Itsasu, five friends founded an artisanal workshop with the aim of creating jobs in the area. The “Kuskoa Bi” model (left) is a perfect blend of tradition and modern technology – a totally fuss-free design.

ART TO GO The “LOQI Museum Collection” puts great works of art like René Magritte’s “The Heartstrings” (1960) out on the street. Besides being practical, the folding bags are definitely more sophisticated than their plastic counterparts. PAPER GIRL Paper and glue are all that Yulia Brodskaya from Moscow needs for her experimental art. What’s even more unusual about the artist with the precise technique is her incredible talent – which impressed Creative Review magazine enough to call her a “breakthrough star” back in 2009. Collectors of her work include Oprah Winfrey and the Museum of Modern Art in San Francisco.

in many different places for you. How has that shaped your life? I was in fact born in the German town of Aachen, close to the border with Belgium, where my father was under contract as a professional soccer player at the time. We then relocated to Bavaria, where his next club was based. After my father had the idea for Dedon furniture, we soon moved to Cebu Island in the Philippines, so he could build his first plant there. That’s where I spent practically the whole of my preschool years. For my siblings and me, being there was always a great adventure. But you were also confronted with the poverty and hardship faced by the locals, and your family decided to act. What do

In order to understand these individuals, you have to put yourself in their position. The garbage does not have much 3 to offer them, but in their eyes, it is at least something. When they first arrive in our village, they are afraid of losing the little they have. The men go off to the factories or go fishing, but the women have to take care of the children. Thanks to my project, the women, too, find work and have access to childcare. Many have lived in the landfi ll for four generations, and their priorities in terms of discipline and reliability are very different from those we are used to from employees in Europe. We want to train the women, not only in craft skills, but also on a psychological level. We create incentives with things that are important to them, for example a lovely birthday party for their child. Nay Palad is Filipino. What does it mean? Nay roughly translates as mother or role model, and palad means faith or self-confidence, but also handicraft. I really like all these possible translations and the women identify with the name.

I purchase the materials, like the semi-precious stones, at the local markets and in Manila, on the neighboring island. What inspires your collections? Each piece is full of a great amount of tradition. We don’t create short-lived trends. So rather than calling myself a designer, I prefer to say that I select the pieces. That is why I also do not talk about collections, but rather journeys.

Carpets bring warmth, comfort and character to a room. Those by CAP are absolute masterpieces with an exquisite elegance. ugs are experiencing a renaissance. Wooden

and stone floors may be very attractive to look at, but they don’t automatically make a home feel or look 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 is placed and on it a lamp. The entire ensemble acts like an island in the room. There are many different ways of applying this principle of adapting a carpet to fit an interior space. 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 a carpet’s motif plays a key role for this interior designer, and one thing is also clear: a carpet is slow-growing. Row by row and centimetre for centimetre it develops, the pattern emerging gradually like the printed page from an inkjet printer. CAP carpets are made of 100 percent natural materials, 80 percent cotton and 20 percent pure wool. There is an anti-slip layer on the underside. The carpets, as robust as they are striking in their multiple designs, are produced in nine different sizes in Belgium. This “Made in Europe” pledge guarantees not only short delivery times but also quality of the highest standard. Learn more at www.carpets-plaids.com

The Passionate Fighter

This picture is not typical for Katharina Harf, who rarely sits still but did for us when we caught up with the international ambassador of DKMS in her home in Los Angeles. The founder of the U.S. branch of the biggest stem cell donor database in the world speaks about her inspiring career that included a detour via Harvard and eventually led her to her ultimate calling – saving blood cancer patients every day.

A Modern Heroine When her mother developed blood cancer 25 years ago, her father founded DKMS – the German Bone Marrow Donor Center. Escaping her grief, Katharina Harf, just a teenager at the time, threw herself into an elite education that eventually led her via Harvard to her true calling. As international DKMS ambassador and co-founder of DKMS USA, the young mother fights for blood cancer patients worldwide, and for 13 years, has been devoted to the cause of the nonprofit organization which has become the largest stem cell donor center in the world.

Most of the ladies turn their heads, gazing at the handsome actor. Except for Katharina, who wants him too, but as a supporter for DKMS. “Are you interested in saving lives?” she asks when a mutual friend introduces them. Katharina: “He smiled and answered: ‘How can I help?’” Just a few weeks later, the Hollywood star is sitting in front of the cameras for ABC, one of the biggest TV networks in the country, explaining DKMS’s mission on “Good Morning America,” the biggest morning show in the USA. 4.6 million viewers watch as the Hollywood star introduces the man sitting next to him on the TV couch: Anthony Daniels, a 29-year-old athlete suffering from Hodgkin’s lymphoma, who is urgently seeking a stem cell donor since his cancer has returned for the fourth time.

Donations for DKMS Registering as a stem cell donor is simple. Just go to http://www.deletebloodcancer. org/en/register and order a swab kit which will be sent to your home address. Simply wipe the two swabs along the inside of your cheeks and mail them back. Once you have registered with DKMS as a donor, your tissue characteristics will be made available for searches on behalf of patients all over the world. If you are a match with a patient in need of a stem cell transplant, you will be asked to go through further tests and a thorough examination. Two different methods are used to collect stem cell donations (figures and procedures can vary

from country to country, as can different types of growth factors): 1. Peripheral blood stem cell collection – this is the most common method for collecting stem cells and is used in approx. 80% of cases. The donor is given a 5-day course of injections containing G-CSF, a naturally occurring growth factor. This increases the number of stem cells in the peripheral blood, which are then collected straight from the donor’s blood using a special procedure. Donors may experience flu-like symptoms while taking the medication. Peripheral stem cell collection is an outpatient procedure and does not require an overnight stay in a hospital.

2. Bone marrow collection – the donor is given a general anesthetic during which approx. 5% of his or her bone marrow is removed. After approx. two weeks, the body has completely regenerated the donated bone marrow. Following the procedure, the wound may hurt for a few days. The pain is similar to a bruise. The donor spends two to three days in the hospital. Saving lives costs money, and DKMS relies on financial donations as well. DKMS invests 40 euros to register a single stem cell donor. That’s why every euro counts – and helps expand the global database. For further information, go to www.deletebloodcancer.org All names and addresses on page 200.

The painful separation from his son Ludwig, who his mother secretly spirited out of the U.S., inspired him to set up the foundation.

Despite having posed nude in a mink coat only a few years earlier, Bardot publicly burned fur coats in Paris, and then suddenly sold all her jewelry in the 1970s. Since that time she has been an animal rights campaigner. Nowadays, the 80-year-old activist drums up financial support, as well as collecting almost 300 tons of food for starving animals per year.

MICHAEL J. FOX MICHAEL J. FOX FOUNDATION FOR PARKINSON’S RESEARCH, ESTABLISHED IN 2000 For seven years, the actor kept his illness a secret. He was only 30 and had just finished shooting the 100th episode of the TV show “Spin City,” when he revealed his diagnosis. The New York Times has called his foundation “globally, the most credible voice in Parkinson’s research.” Today, it is also considered the world’s biggest non-for-profit developer of medication for the disease. Michael himself has continued working – first in the ”Michael J. Fox Show,” and these days in other, Emmy-nominated roles.

For the Love of the Ocean His passion for the beauty of the sea helped him win the world‘s biggest sailing race, the America’s Cup, twice. After growing his family’s biotechnology company Serono into the biggest in Europe and establishing his new Waypoint Capital investment business, Ernesto Bertarelli faces a new big challenge: saving Chagos, the largest marine reserve on earth. The remarkable Swiss entrepreneur talks about childhood memories, his family foundation and why he believes INTERVIEW BY: Michaela Cordes that facts and data are required to create change.

turned home in 1993 after graduating from Harvard to join the family company Serono. He became its CEO in 1996 at only 31, refocusing on biotechnology. Within the next 10 years, Serono’s revenues skyrocketed from 809 million dollars in 1996 to 2.8 billion in 2006. The company made headlines in the field of IVF, where its discoveries over decades brought hope to generations of women who never believed they could have children, treatments for MS and growth hormone deficiency. In 2007 Bertarelli sold the company to Merck for many billions of dollars. In his private life, Ernesto Bertarelli was just as fortunate. He has been married since 2000 to the successful songwriter and former Miss UK Kirsty Roper. The couple have three children aged 14, 12 and 10. But what makes Ernesto Bertarelli a truly exceptional man is the fact that on top of his enormous success in business, the passionate sailor brought the America’s Cup to Europe for the very first time. Together with his Team Alinghi he won the biggest trophy in the sailing world twice – in 2003 and 2007. Now, the remarkable entrepreneur

has found a new challenge – raising awareness for the crisis of our oceans. With his family-owned Bertarelli Foundation he is taking on their biggest project so far: saving Chagos, the largest archipelago in the Indian Ocean. With its vast size of 23,000 square miles of shallow limestone reef it is the largest marine reserve in the world. Mr. Bertarelli, what does being at sea mean to you?  My love of the ocean was basically in me when I was born. I was raised on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea and moved from Italy to Switzerland when I was seven. My father was a sailor and competed in sailing. He skippered boats for wealthier people when he was a young man and not yet running his father’s business. I was introduced to the sea very early on when I was one year old. My mother liked to remind my father of the day he turned the corner of the island of Giglio and a strong wind put our boat down on its side. For a moment she thought they had lost me and searched the boat, screaming my name, only to find me holding on to the roof of our boat. When I was a teenager my dad gave me a boat instead of a moped. It was a small, inflatable three-meter-long dinghy with a small engine. Fortunately, the guy who sold it to us made a mistake and swapped the cover of what was supposed to be a 7.5 horsepower engine with one that had more than double the power. I was proud of my super-fast boat and zoomed off out of sight of my

think it did. You learn about responsibility from an early age, because you always need to see the bigger picture: for example, do I have enough gas to make it back to shore? Also, you cannot just leave a boat in the sea – you have to care for it. It was an exceptionally smart move for my father to give me that boat. He always nurtured my passion for the sea. To make sure I would not run off again when I came back from Harvard, he gave me a seat on the board and a boat on the lake. At the time I was much more interested in cars and buildings, in more concrete things. I wanted to be an architect, or a car designer, but my father would not give up his hope and his vision. Thank God! Because as I matured I started to understand that the pharma and biotech business is so much more fascinating. Luckily, as I grew up I understood my father’s stubbornness in hoping I would follow in his footsteps and eventually run the business that had been in the family since my grandfather’s day. I only wish I had had more time to enjoy adult conversations with my father, but he sadly passed away when he was 68 and I needed to rush to take over the company in my late twenties. But I feel exceptionally fortunate to have been educated and put in a situation to understand the opportunity of change. That’s why I enjoy my involvement with our foundation, because our aim is to encourage change.

cuddle with. Seldom do you get to play with a fish. Humans do not relate to marine life on that level. That is a massive disadvantage for the ocean. And that’s what I am interested in – growing compassion for the ocean and its animals. Because I have been in contact with the ocean from an early age, I feel as much love for a tuna, a dolphin or a shark as I feel for a gazelle, a lion or a bear. But I think I am in the minority and this is what needs to change. How do you want to grow that awareness?  By bringing facts and data to the surface. The largest project we are sponsoring today is the Chagos Archipelago, which was introduced to me and my wife by our dear friend George Duffield, who had done some initial work in the creation of a maritime reserve. I believe it has a lot of potential as a good baseline for research in the Indian Ocean, which is the most vulnerable of all seas because there are two billion people living on its shores. We count sharks, as the number of sharks is a good indicator of the health status of a marine ecosystem. We study the coral, its migration, how it responds to currents. And we study the behavior of animals and birds – all so that my kids and future generations will understand what an unspoilt island looks like. What are you doing to com-

municate your discoveries? I think other people are more suited to promoting change in a more vocal way. What Leonardo DiCaprio is doing is very good.

This mansion is inextricably linked with Hamburg’s municipal history. It was built in 1903 by the architect Ernst Paul Dorn as a summer residence for HAPAG Director Johannes Merck. The lofty prestige of the peaceful property has since been complemented with a cosy warmth, envisioned by Dana Schweiger as she transformed it into the family home. Prepare to be inspired.

J. Paul Getty was an enormously successful businessman and once considered the richest man in the world. He was less fortunate in his private life. With five broken marriages under his belt, he ruefully said “I would gladly give all my millions for just one marital success.” He also disinherited his family and left his fortune to the Getty Foundation, whose mission includes the preservation of architectural icons around the world.

A Matter of Sustainability

Education plays a crucial part in improving the prospects of children in Africa. The not-for-profit Engel & Völkers Charity has set up an elementary school in the Togolese village of Agbetiko, in which 120 children are currently enrolled.

t all started with a trip to Africa in 2006, when

Ingrid van Aalst traveled to Togo in her capacity as an interpreter. The country on the Gulf of Guinea is predominantly agrarian – roughly two thirds of its population work in farming. While she was there, Ingrid van Aalst met Elias Ahadzi, a customs official, who invited her to his native village of A ­ gbetiko, situated approximately 120 kilometers northeast of the capital Lomé. This visit brought about a complete change in van Aalst’s life, and inspired her to set herself some completely new goals. What she wanted most of all was to help the children in the village, many of whom were orphans. Over the next two years, van Aalst made repeated trips to Agbetiko, and ended up receiving a plot of land as a gift. Wanting to open an elementary school there, Ingrid van Aalst turned to her son-in-law Christian Völkers. “The whole thing started off as a kind of family project,” says Ninon Völkers, the president of the foundation. “My mother’s dedication to this venture inspired all of us and swept us right along. When the

idea for the first school building started taking shape, we all sat together at home, drawing up the blueprints.” In May 2009, the foundations for the Engel & Völkers School were laid. Only one year later, the school opened. It had three classrooms, all constructed in the traditional way, with clay bricks. The children are taught subjects like math, as well as reading and writing in French, the country’s official language. But for them, French is their second language because they speak a variety of African dialects in their home villages. The original school building was only the first of many ideas, some of which have already been implemented. Others are still in the construction or planning stages. Next to the school, for example, an orphanage has been built to provide housing for students who no longer have parents to care for them. A second school building was completed last year. “In addition to the new building there is now also a threemeter-high wall protecting the entire property,” explains N ­ inon Völkers. “The children’s safety is one of our primary concerns.” There All names and addresses on page 200.

are plans to further intensify the involvement of the E ­ ngel & Völkers Charity. “The next construction projects which we would like to implement include a cafeteria and an infirmary, as the nearest hospital is much too far away. In addition to this, we plan to build a secondary school, where farming and animal husbandry will be taught,” explains the charity’s president. “After that, the only thing that will be missing is an actual farm where students can put into practice what they’ve learned in the schoolroom.” he aim of the Engel & Völkers Charity is to provide help and support long-term, but also eventually to hand over the management of the project to the villagers themselves. “What we are doing is capacity building,” explains Ninon Völkers. “The project is meant to become a virtuous circle. The children will begin their education at the preschool and continue their schooling here until they graduate. Then they will start a vocational training program in which they will work on the farm – and later on, hopefully on their own plots of land. It is not only the children who will benefit from this, but the whole village. Incidentally, the villagers are very proud of what is happening here. We contribute to the sustainable devel-

opment of this part of Togo, and in this way help to create a secure future for local people. At some point, we may be able to commit to another project, but we first want to complete this one in Agbetiko in an exemplary fashion.” That, however, is likely to take several more years. Apart from the plans which have not yet been implemented, the current elements of the project also need to be kept going. The ongoing costs are no longer limited to lighting maintenance and the regular repainting of the buildings, which is made necessary by the tropical climate with its rainy seasons. Other recurring fixed costs include school furniture, teachers’ salaries and the children’s school uniforms (fabrics and labor for making these are sourced from the village), as well as food and basic healthcare for the children. If at all possible, Engel & Völkers try to employ local men and women, for example as craftspeople or kitchen staff. Items which are not available in Agbetiko itself are obtained from the surrounding area, for example wood for the handmade school desks. “Agbetiko is in the middle of the bush,” says Ninon Völkers. “That’s why some things are difficult to organize, but the village is close to our hearts. And so we UA will continue to work for the children and their future.”

A pioneer of modern design, she created cult pieces like the “E-1027” table or “Bibendum Chair.” Even Le Corbusier is said to have gone FC green with envy. Amazing designs by an amazing woman!

However, since they did have an official 990 for the year 2012 available and unofficial reports indicated an increase in their charitable expenditures, we assumed an at least equal amount of charitable expenditures in the 2013 ranking for the purpose of completeness
