or me, one of the most important developments over the past years has been the incredible pace of change that we’ve been exposed to. One example is the astonishing rate at which we all embraced new technologies

during the pandemic. To my mind, this is a very positive thing because it creates the necessary space for progress. That notwithstanding, in times of continuous renewal, it is also important to retain a sense of inner calm, to take a deep breath and the time to weigh up: What’s good for me, and what can I do to help other people? I’ve always been convinced that running a successful business like Engel & Völkers brings with it an obligation to turn our gaze toward places where people are less fortunate. Years ago, through a family connection, I learned of an elementary school project in Agbetiko village in Togo, West Africa. In 2008 we established the Engel & Völkers Charity and for nearly 13 years, the Engel & Völkers school has been helping children in Agbetiko to take their first steps toward a secure and independent future. More than 200 children have attended the school so far, and we are currently planning a high school. This project makes me incredibly proud. For myself, in challenging times like these, there is no better place to retreat to than my second home on Mallorca. I’m especially excited to be making our own red wine at Finca “Con Soll.” Every year, our finca produces roughly 2,000 bottles, which make a wonderful gift for friends, family and staff. We also take great care to produce our wine sustainably, which is one reason I am fascinated by our current cover story on Jeany and Stephen Cronk, who established a vineyard in Provence, France. Sometimes, it appears, it’s the little things in life that end up making the biggest difference. This home on the roof of our company headquarters in Hamburg. I hope very much that this project will make a small contribution toward preserving biodiversity.

WELCOME

Mindfulness…

What a beautiful, sophisticated word. Originally, being mindful meant “bearing something in mind,” but today mindfulness is understood as a conscious awareness of the moment, of ourselves, of the world around us – in a nonjudgmental way. A respectful approach that helps us find clarity and the ability to accept the reality of the moment. An attitude we could all actually benefit from – observing a bit more before judging or even condemning new ideas and beliefs. Especially in uncertain times like these when the world seems to be changing much faster than ever before, facing new and unfamiliar challenges. Understanding that new ideas are rarely perfect from the get-go, but can point in the right direction if we are just humble enough to take that step back. This is the approach that inspired us for this issue. Meet the very likable Cronks: Jeany is from Bavaria, Steven was born in London. Together they founded Maison Mirabeau, a new and very successful rosé producing business in Provence in southern France. Through their first regeneratively grown label La Réserve they were inspired to form a foundation, to help winegrowers worldwide learn more about the advantages of regenerative farming. Get to know American-­Israeli designer Neri Oxman, who breaks boundaries combining biology, architecture and tech. Fall in love with the delightful Monastero Santa Rosa hotel on the Amalfi Coast in Italy – just like the current owner did when she first set eyes on the former monastery. And learn about other enterprises and their mindful ideas that help treat our planet with the respect it deserves.

Enjoy your read!

THANK YOU

Merle Wilkening In February, after finishing a trainee program, Merle Wilkening joined the GG team as staff editor. With a degree in cultural studies from Lüneburg University in her pocket, she moved to Hamburg three years ago. Merle has never been to Madrid, but after researching the Spanish capital for our Cool City section (page 14), she is now super-excited to go.

Sophie Bellard French photographer and wine expert Sophie Bellard is in charge of Maison ­Mirabeau’s brand image and communicating it via various channels. When Jeany and Stephen Cronk established their award-winning rosé and gin brand, the German-British couple left London and moved with their three children to Provence. The photo shoot for our cover story took place over two days at their 20-hectare estate. May Sophie’s images lure you away to the enchantingly beautiful Domaine Mirabeau in the south of France (page 30).

round 3.3 million people live in ­Madrid, making it one of Europe’s most populous cities. Madrid’s history dates back to the 9th century, and the city was ruled by Muslims until 1095. It has been the capital of Spain, the seat of government and home to the royal family since 1561 – apart from a period of five years – although today the Palacio Real is an official residence rather than a royal home. The architecture around the city stems from various different epochs. You’ll find narrow, winding streets, opulent palaces and historical monuments as well as modern high-rise buildings in the business district. On the east side of Plaza Mayor, the famous column-lined central square in the heart of the old town, Paseo del Arte avenue leads straight to the cultural heart of the city. Three world-class museums are located here just a few hundred meters from each other: the Prado, which houses Spanish masterpieces by Velázquez, Goya and El Greco; the Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum across from it and the Reina Sofía, where visitors can admire Picasso’s iconic “Guernica.” Madrid has positioned itself as a highly attractive real estate market, not only for Spanish buyers but for international ones too, primarily from France but increasingly from Mexico and Argentina. Demand for real estate in this densely populated city far outweighs supply, and compared with last year, Madrid has seen the highest price increases anywhere in Spain – with the exception of the Balearic Islands. In 2021, average prices for highly coveted locations such as the Salamanca district, where the traditional Recoletos, Goya and Lista neighborhoods are located, reached 6,100 euros per square meter. Here in the Spanish capital, people are out on the streets until far into the night. And

like everywhere else in Spain, they don’t eat dinner until after 9 pm. The San Miguel market hall features traditional food such as tapas and paella, whereas the Fayer Madrid restaurant specializes in modern Israeli cuisine. The Botín, which opened in 1725, is listed in the Guinness book of records as the oldest restaurant in the world. Madrilenians escape the urban hustle and bustle in Buen Retiro park; last year, along with magnificent Paseo del Prado boulevard, this green oasis was declared a ­UNESCO World Heritage site. On hot days, people also flock to Madrid Río park to cool off. Before 2011, traffic still thundered along the ring road here, but in a prime example of urban development, the city restored and landscaped the area on the banks of the Manzanares river and turned it into an attractive parkland. In fact, Madrid has a comprehensive plan for making the city even greener: The city intends to plant around half a million trees, creating a 75-kilometer city forest that will improve air quality and capture 175,000 tons of carbon every year. Primarily native species will be planted so that they don’t require much water. The green city wall is part of Madrid 360, a strategy created to achieve the goals set out in the United Nations Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development. Would you like to know more?

Cool covers

Once there were two brothers named Daniel and Markus Freitag, creative young men who had the unusual but simple idea of making bags out of used truck tarps. In 1993, from their shared apartment in Zurich, they started making one-of-a-kind pieces from recycled materials, such as old tarps, bicycle inner tubes and car safety belts, by hand. Nearly three decades and numerous design prizes later, the two-man workshop has become a company that employs 250 people. The Freitag bags turned into cult items and traveled the world, just ­­ like the truck tarps they were made of. Today, the Freitag range includes more than 50 bags and accessories, each of them unique. Fans can design certain models themselves online or produce them in so-called sweat-yourselfshops in Zurich, Bangkok or Kyoto. The first “Messenger Bag F13 TOP CAT” received a particularly high honor in 2011 when it featured in the Standard Deviations exhibition hosted by the Museum of Modern Art in New York – a fairy-tale tribute to the brothers and their remarkable idea.

Since 2014, Freitag has also been selling clothing made from biodegradable fabric it developed itself. Would you like to know more?

INTERVIEW

Light & Lasting

With their sustainable label Vee Collective, Lili Radu and her husband Patrick Löwe have revolutionized the handbag market. Lili Radu, you established your first handbag l­ abel at the end of 2010. Then, in late 2017, you and your husband launched Vee Collective. What’s the idea behind this label? After spending a lot of time talking to customers we realized that contemporary women are looking for something new. Mothers, businesswomen, younger women, older women – they all want a lightweight bag with enough space to hold everything they need throughout the day. There was nothing like this available. At Vee Collective we design bags that accompany women as they go about their daily lives.

Fashion inf luencers around the world choose your bags, including model Toni Garrn. How did your Berlin label become an international success? Last year we grew by 600%. We’re working with an international distributor who sells our label in showrooms in London, Paris, Milan, Shanghai and New York. We’re growing our direct sales business in Switzerland at the moment, we will be moving into Scandinavia at the end of the year and intend to focus more strongly on the U.S. and Asia. We want our bags to sell more successfully than any ­others worldwide. What’s your next project? We’re convinced that if you stand still you fall behind. Our sourcing team in Hong Kong is constantly on the lookout for innovative new things. We were the first fashion brand to introduce water soluble packaging. In November we’ll be launching our third line of bags made of nylon from old bomber jackets.

Vee Collective co-founder Lili Radu (right) designs bags for everyday use. The “Vee Tote Medium” and the “Porter ­Medium” (pictured here) are among her bestselling bags. Would you like to know more?

WORDS: MERLE WILKENING; PHOTOS: VEE COLLECTIVE

You claim that your “Vee Tote” is the world’s most lightweight bag. Why is weight so important? Many women carry so much stuff with them from morning to night, it’s crucial to keep the weight of the bag itself to a minimum. Our models are made of ripstop nylon, a fabric that’s incredibly lightweight but extremely durable and also water repellent. All of our bags are 100% recycled – from the lining to the vegan leather details to the zippers.

NEWS FROM THE CEO

Bella Italia - where international buyers are driving demand

T

o the north, Italy is bounded by the mighty Alps, to the east by the Adriatic, to the south by the Ionian and to the west by the Tyrrhenian Seas. Italy’s residential real estate market is equally diverse. Whether it’s an elegant villa with a sea view that you’re looking for, a historic rustico (rustic house) or a modern penthouse, you can find dream properties all over the country – on the coast, in urban areas, in the country and in the mountains. Around 75% of Italians own their own homes compared with only about 50% of Germans. But Bella Italia draws international buyers as well as those based in Italy, and the demand for real estate from outside the country is huge. Engel & Völkers Italy recorded a 58% growth in sales in 2021 compared with the previous year. In addition to cities such as Milan, Venice and Florence, prospective buyers from outside the country are mostly interested in the coastal regions as well as central and ­northern Italy, such as the Adriatic coast, Tuscany, dream islands like Capri and Sardinia and the popular vacation destination South Tyrol, where demand rose sharply last year. The majority of people who are buying real estate in South Tyrol are from outside Italy. This is particularly true for Merano, where 75% of buyers are from elsewhere, and Bolzano (Bozen), where the share of international buyers is 65%. Only in BressanoneBrunico (Brixen-Bruneck) is the share of Italian buyers considerably higher (70%). Last year, apartments in Bolzano’s most soughtafter locations drew peak prices of up to 12,000 euros per square meter. Prices in Merano achieved 8,000 euros per square meter.

­Demand is also on the rise for peripheral areas, because they offer more privacy and seclusion. Such places are ideally suited to fulfilling the new requirement for real estate that combines working and living spaces. In addition, winter sports enthusiasts come into their own here due to the region’s proximity to the Italian Alps and famous ski areas. Rome, the Italian capital, is another real estate hotspot. The historic city center with its fashionable Tridente neighborhood is an absolutely top location. Property prices here draw as much as 11,000 euros per square meter. In other sought-after neighborhoods, such as Parioli, Prati, B ­ alduina, Borgo Pio, Vigna Clara, Cassia and Garbatella, prices reach 7,000 euros per square meter. In Rome’s historic center, 11% of buyers are from outside Italy, particularly the U.S., the U.K. and France. For Rome as a whole, the figure is around 5.5%. We’ve also been observing increased demand for residential real estate outside the city center, for homes with ample property attached and good access to downtown. The dynamic development we’ve just described is not limited to the residential real estate market. Engel & Völkers itself has an exciting and successful track record in Italy to look back on. The first Engel & Völkers shop opened in Cernobbio on Lake Como in 2004. By 2015, the number had grown to 30, and by the end of the year we will have 80 shops. About 1,000 people are currently working under the Engel & Völkers brand in Italy. I’m very proud of our fantastic teams and that so many incredible people have joined us on the strength of our brand – their number is growing every day!

In 2019, around 64 million tourists came to Italy from around the world, making it the fifth most popular destination after France, Spain, the U.S. and China. But the country doesn’t just draw visitors: More and more people are buying property in Italy. The luxury segment is particularly thriving; prices rose in 2021 by 4% on average – the biggest increase since the financial crisis.

FEELGOOD MOVIE FOR FANS OF ITALY

“Under the Tuscan Sun” is a 2003 film starring Diane Lane. In an entertaining way, it explores the forces that can be unleashed when a person starts a new life. For the protagonist, this involves a villa in Tuscany. In 2021, there were more inquiries regarding real estate purchases in Tuscany than for anywhere else in Italy.

It offers custom-made solutions for people contemplating a ­partial sale of their home and is currently available in Germany and under consideration for other ­European countries.

A partial sale is an excellent way to obtain quick access to the necessary funds.

Join the Greener Revolution Superlight

A Life Less Throwaway

As a follow-up to “30 Easy Ways to Join the Food Revolution,” eco-conscious chef Ollie Hunter has now published a book dedicated to everyday sustainability and green living. Each of us can approach our lives and the way we treat food more conscientiously: by being more aware of what to banish from the kitchen (nobody needs plastic wrap anymore), encouraging communal living and using positive visualization and meditation to create a more mindful world. Hunter garnishes these principles with promising sounding recipes such as dandelion and zucchini pakoras or chickpea Scotch eggs served with aquafaba aioli.

A building so light and delicate that it appears to float among the trees – the house on the cover (top right) is just one of many examples of a design philosophy that has gained increasing influence over the past decades. With houses that, in his words “touch the earth lightly,” innovative Australian architect Glenn Murcutt eschews solid foundations and focuses on new materials and a different way of using land. It’s a solution-based approach that has its own set of requirements: esthetically pleasing ­houses that merge seamlessly into their environment. This book showcases 40 spectacular examples from around the world.

We all know what it feels like to keep wanting new things. But our consumer oriented lifestyle is often harmful to the environment. Tara Button takes us down a different path. Instead of a throwaway mentality, she advocates a lifestyle she calls “mindful curation.” The principle is simple: Opt for quality over quantity and carefully and consciously choose products that were made to last. In a ten-step process, Button helps us get started. We learn how to set priorities, rid ourselves of unnecessary things and discover our own style. The result: happiness and self-esteem quite independent of what we consume. Less is so often much, much more.

s the sun goes down against a luminous evening sky, the ­Domaine Mirabeau and its surroundings are glowing in an ­almost unrealistic, but quite appropriate, pale pink hue. The loud singing of the cicadas is only interrupted by the g ­ entle popping of a cork. Stephen Cronk and his wife Jeany have i­nvited me to join them for a sundowner on the terrace of their Bastide.

Happiness in a bottle: That’s also what the German-English couple’s rosé label Maison Mirabeau delivers.

A mere 45 minutes from Saint-Tropez, in the heart of beautiful Provence, surrounded by many other world-renowned rosé producers, a relatively new brand with German-British roots has risen to prominence and is shaking up the traditional, established wine scene. Enter Maison Mirabeau, which was founded by the very likable Cronks. Jeany, originally from Lake Tegernsee in Bavaria, and her British husband Stephen now create seven different rosés and export their extremely popular pale pink wines to more than 50 countries. Yet twelve years ago this seemed like an unattainable dream. The family was still living in London. After a successful career in the marketing department of the communications company Energis, Jeany was at home taking care of their three young children. Stephen was still in the telecoms sector, incessantly traveling the world. But in his heart of hearts, he had long been dreaming of a future as a successful winegrower, working and living with his family in their favorite region of Provence. It was an evening with friends that finally started the ball rolling. More specifically, says Stephen, things began taking shape after a visit from an American friend: “We hadn’t seen each other for many years and on that evening, after a few glasses of rosé, I began talking about my life dream and told him that eventually, I was going to quit my job and Jeany and I would move to France and make wine.” The American, who had heard this statement a few times before, followed up this time by asking: “When? Write it down.” So Stephen Cronk, no longer completely sober, went up to the kitchen blackboard and jotted down a reverse timetable with an end date of May 2006. “I drew a circle around the date and said: ‘That’s when we’ll be living in France!’” Brilliant, his friend replied, and took a photo of the blackboard to record the event. That was in 2004. In May 2006 the same friend sent Stephen a photo of his doodles on the blackboard and asked him: Where are you living now? “Of course we were still in London and nothing at all had changed since our friend’s last visit. I felt crushed because I suddenly realized that I’m the kind of guy I’ve always disliked, ­someone who talks but never acts, and that

now was the time to make this happen,” says Stephen, his gaze wandering across the vineyard where the Cronks grow the grapes for their own La Réserve label according to regenerative agriculture methods – but more about that later (see the interview on page 40) Slightly embarrassed and spurred into action, the Cronks realized they were also running out of time. “Our youngest son had just been born and our other two children were seven and eight years old,” Jeany recalls. “Due to the way the English school system worked, we only had a short period of time, no more than two years, to choose the right school and the right place to start our new life.” Stephen revived his old contacts from his stint in the wine trade as a young man. “I worked for a wine shop in London when I was in my 20s, selling wine to restaurants, but stopped doing it soon afterwards because I realized that it wasn’t for me at this time.” One of the people Stephen contacted turned out to be extremely helpful. “Matthew Stubbs, a Master of Wine, was one of my most important advisors. He told me that the wine business was made up of three Vs: 1, Viticulture, growing vines; 2, Vinification, turning grapes into wine; 3, Vendre, selling the wine. Matthew explained that there was an obsession in the wine trade to own the whole supply chain: to drive the tractor in the morning, be in the winery the next minute and then throw on a suit and go to a tradeshow to sell your wine. He said it’s really not a very efficient way. But there are specialists. He asked if I could drive a tractor and I said: How hard can it be? He said if it was him he would get involved in the second V, in the winemaking and obsess about the third V. Why? Because the farmers here have been growing wine for generations. You can’t learn what they are doing and they can’t do what you need to do – which is to build a business by focusing on the important blending process and sales, and create a strong brand. That was another pivotal point for us.” Matthew’s advice suited the enterprising couple down to the ground. Jeany, who had been to Cannes often with her parents, spoke some French. So she did the marketing and Stephen traveled the world again to make

sales. In the end, listening to the experts definitely paid off, as Jeany puts it: “You can really fall flat on your face if you don’t. There are many sad stories about highly motivated people who follow the wrong strategy, spend all their money and have to give up their dream, even before it’s had a real chance.” Maison Mirabeau, a family brand that produces exceptionally good rosé, was established in 2010. Jeany says: “Today, we’re doing exactly what all the other big brands in the area do. For those wines that we sell in larger quantities, we choose grapes from winegrowers in the region and blend them according to our taste.” This process is called assemblage in the language of the trade. But where does their passion for rosé come from? “Jeany and I have always been avid rosé fans,” says Stephen. “We also sensed the beginning of a trend. In the 70s and 80s, rosé wasn’t very well known and wine connoisseurs totally refused to take it seriously, but starting in the 2000s, interest in rosé really started taking off on an international scale.” Provence is the world leader in these refreshing, pale pink wines and the Mirabeau range easily transmits this longing for summer, lightness of being and good vibes. “Technically,” the Cronks explain, “rosé is the most difficult wine to produce.” Why? “Color is crucial when it come to a good rosé, and getting it right requires a lot of cooling technology,” explains Jeany. “A little too much heat at the wrong moment, or too much pressure on the grapes, and the red color from the skins leaches into the must, so you have to separate the juice from the skins quickly, otherwise you get too much color. And nobody wants dark rosé these days.” This is also why the grape harvest always takes place at night, in early September when daytime temperatures in Provence can still reach 30° C, but drop to 10 or 15° C during the night. After they are picked, the grapes are loaded onto trailers, where they are immediately cooled with dry ice to stop the oxidation process. Speed is very important to preserve the delicate aromas, Jeany says, and points to the road that snakes through the landscape in the distance. “At harvest time, the roads around here are crowded with tractors racing to the winery because everyone harvests at the same time.” Stephen adds: “Pressing the grapes is also a very modern process. The wine press we use looks like a great steel tank with a bladder inside. It’s a ­pneumatic

39

press, which squeezes out the juice in the gentlest possible way. If you press too hard you get too much color.” Rosé doesn’t have to age for many years like red wine does. In fact, rosé is meant to be drunk young. The wines that Maison Mirabeau produces are particularly popular in England, but increasingly, buyers from around the world are also showing an interest in the new label. In order to receive and entertain visitors and position the brand more strongly, the couple invested in this 20-hectare (nearly 50-acre) property three years ago. Mirabeau’s fast growing innovative product lineup also includes a pink gin – packaged in an attractive, cut-glass bottle reminiscent of a costly flask of perfume. Looking back, what was the secret of their remarkable success? “The fact that each new challenge showed us just how resilient we actually were,” says Jeany with a laugh and goes on to describe how unexpected and eventful the last two years had been. When the coronavirus crisis struck, Maison Mirabeau’s business with restaurant and bars ground to a halt, but this was offset by increased orders from retail stores and private customers, who were able to order wine via the online shop on the company’s homepage. Last summer, during one of the biggest wildfires Provence has ever seen, the Cronks’ recently acquired vineyard almost went up in flames, and all the neighbors rallied round to help put out the fire. This is one of many dramatic stories that the Cronks can now tell with a smile on their face. In the end, the best advice for putting down deep roots in France came from the former owner of the now famous Chateau Miraval, who had just sold his vineyard to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. “Just before we were about to leave London and after we had chosen an international school for our children, he told us that we were doing it all wrong,” explains Stephen. “He said that if our children went to an international school, they would gravitate toward the other English-speaking children and wouldn’t integrate properly. And that sending them to a French school would mean they would cry for one year, but would be grateful to us for the rest of their lives. So instead of moving to Aix-enProvence as we had originally planned, we chose a rural French village with a local school.” Jeany shakes her head as she recalls those early days: “Our older son took it very hard at first and used to say to us: ‘I’m English, I need to go back to England,’ but today he’s more French than the French!”


you’re starting out, it’s hard to know who to follow. What I did know was that I didn’t want to spray anything synthetic. Organic farming would have meant plowing, and plowing would have meant tractors and putting a lot of carbon into the air, which I also wanted to avoid. In the documentary “Kiss the Ground,” U.S. actor Woody Harrelson draws attention to the harmful effects of commercial agriculture. To what extent is this true of commercial winegrowing? More and more farmers are realizing that traditional winegrowing methods deplete the soil of nutrients. If you keep doing this, it eventually dies and turns into dirt. So it’s important to get people to rethink they way they’re growing wine. Regeneratively farmed vineyards look very different from conventional ones. You see bright f lowers growing between the rows of vines, and the plow stays in the barn. Why is this? Planting a cover crop between the vines draws carbon out of the air and into the earth, where it is sequestered. This also improves the water table and increases the organic life in the soil. In regenerative farming, you have to teach the vines to put down deeper roots, which planting grasses encourages, because otherwise, they compete for the same nutrients. Once the soil is fully regenerated, you no longer need a plow.

Stephen Cronk on regenerative agriculture When they acquired the Domaine Mirabeau estate, the Cronks learned an unexpected lesson on the damaging effects of monoculture farming. The Regenerative Viticulture Foundation, which Stephen Cronk recently established, aims to give resources to winegrowers around the world so that they can learn the advantages of sustainable growing methods with the help of international experts.

What got you interested in the subject? It took us five years to actually find the estate. I didn’t get my head around farming until I had the keys, but then I thought: Now I own the place – I have a big responsibility! I had lots of people offering advice and opinions, but when

Why are tractors and plowing so damaging to healthy, fertile soil? You have to treat soil as a living organism. It’s full of fungi and bacteria. Once you realize that a single teaspoon of soil contains more than 8 million different microbes, you can imagine what plowing does: It kills them all. But this is exactly what conventional farmers want because they are afraid that other plants will take nutrients away from the vines. The truth is, they don’t: If you grow the right plants, they will exist in harmony with the vines and even produce the minerals that the vines need to grow. There’s a lot of confusion and misinformation on the subject, which is why we’re working through the foundation to publish studies containing verifiable, evidence-based facts. That’s what it will take to get people to approach winegrowing differently. After all, it’s their livelihood, they can’t change overnight. Just imagine if I went up to the local farmers here in Provence and told them they should consider selling their tractor and never spraying or plowing. They’d say: Are you crazy? We’ve been doing it for generations. What are you, some kind of English guy who’s just turned up and thinks he knows better? (He laughs). Would you like to know more?

BALTIC 68 CAFÉ RACER Sustainability is the buzzword of our times, and you’d be for-

given for not including superyachts in this category. But in May 2021, the Finnish shipbuilder Baltic Yachts launched a boat that most definitely ticks this box, as well as having yachting fans wide-eyed in admiration. The 20-meter Baltic 68 Café Racer unites exquisite style with great eco-credentials. Designer Javier Jaudenes says: “This is the essential modern weekender with a genuinely ‘green’ approach to construction and auxiliary power.“ The engineers have reinforced the hull with flax, integrating a fantastic, naturally growing material in the design – a first for a vessel of this size. The Baltic 68 Café Racer is equipped with solar panels, which power the on-board systems and air conditioning units, and two electric engines. On deck, the tropical hardwoods commonly used have been replaced with beautiful, durable and sustainable cork. The interior design also features green materials such as flax, linen and leather. If all of this has won you over and you’re already mentally reaching for your check book, here comes the disappointing bit: Due to the current fluctuations in the prices of raw materials, Baltic Yachts has not yet pinned a price tag on its marvelous new green daysailer. But prospective customers should be prepared for something in the middle single-digit million range.


SELLPY Let’s get the bad news out of the way first: Following hard on the heels of the oil industry, the fashion industry is the second biggest source of pollution worldwide, producing toxic wastewater and consuming huge volumes of fossil ­fuels and water. But the good news is: Things are changing! Sustainability and a green ethos have arrived with a bang, and are the hot look for this season – and probably many more. People are buying clothes with their environmental impact in mind. Swedish fashion behemoth H&M is catering to the mindset with Sellpy, founded in 2014 and today a 70% subsidiary, which launched in Germany in 2020. The second-hand – or pre-loved – platform sells everything from pleated skirts to iPhones in a process that is simplicity itself for users. No need to spend hours taking photos, no negotiating, no shipping individual parcels. All you do is order a Sellpy bag, fill it with anything you want to sell – in good condition, obviously – and send the bag back to Sellpy. The team there prices the items on the basis of sales data from more than 10 million pieces, takes photos and lists them online. Items that do not meet the quality standards are returned or, if the seller agrees, donated to Greenpeace, Save the Children, SOS-Kinderdörfer and UNHCR – or recycled. The seller receives 4070% of the price. ­Sellpy already employs more than 500 people and with its customers has sold over 10 million items, saving almost 30 million liters of water and nearly 80 million tons of carbon.

CAMPANA BROTHERS “First comes the material, then the form and finally, we elaborate the function of the product by studying its ergonomics, limitations, and capabilities,” say Fernando and Humberto Campana, the designers behind the globally acclaimed Campana Brothers. The Brazilian design team finds inspiration on the streets of their native São Paulo, a city both fascinating and chaotic. The brothers have been working together since 1984 in their Estudio Campana, designing masterful and deeply intriguing creations using discarded and scavenged materials such as driftwood, ropes and leather remnants. One of their latest designs is the Merengue by Campana Brothers, a collaboration with Louis Vuitton. The pouf is composed of eight soft leather sections, draped and stuffed with wool to resemble a freshly piped swirl of meringue. The Vermelha Chair from 1993 is one of their most instantly recognizable designs, and even made it into the permanent collection at MoMA in New York. The seat is made of 500 meters of red cord, inspired by a large bunch of rope the brothers purchased from a street stall and took back to their studio to study. What may look like a randomly thrown-together artwork is actually the result of meticulous weaving techniques and 500 hours of work done by hand.


TOO GOOD TO GO “Save food, protect the planet” – is the slogan of Too Good To Go. Sound too good to be true? No, it really works! Currently, the enterprise connects 159,000 businesses that have surplus food with 59 million users. The idea is that partner firms offer their surplus food in “Magic Bags” on the app and users swipe to purchase a bag. For restaurants, supermarkets and hotels it’s a great way to optimize their yield management. The anti-food-waste app was founded in 2015 in Denmark by five young men who were appalled by the madness of good food being thrown away just because it didn’t sell. Households across the EU throw out a staggering 89 million tons of food annually. In comparison: Thanks to their brilliant idea, the guys from TGTG have saved 15 million tons of food from the trash. TGTG is currently represented in 17 countries, including the U.K., Spain and the U.S.; Germany alone has 7.7 million users. The founders regularly receive awards and accolades, taking home the German Ecodesign Prize and the FOCUS Innovation Prize, for instance. TGTG doesn’t just attract recognition, but also funding: Since it was founded, there have been multiple investment rounds, raising almost 70 million euros in total. The forward-thinking founders are also invested in the next generation, and provide teaching materials to educate school students about sustainable consumption.

fornia outdoor giant’s annual revenues are around 1 billion dollars and, according to the Circular Fashion Index 2022, the company currently holds the top spot of all those that achieve good circularity performance. Founder and climbing pioneer Yvon Chouinard anchored his own deep respect for nature in the DNA of his company. Since 1985, Patagonia has been donating 1% of revenues to environmental organizations; in 2002, Chouinard set up the “One Percent for the Planet” initiative. Businesses that join this alliance pledge to donate 1% of revenues or 10% of profits. Since 1996, Patagonia has exclusively used organic cotton, which saves 45% of carbon emissions and uses 87% less water than conventional cotton. On top of all this, the company uses nearly 70% recycled materials and with its “Worn Wear” campaign motivates its worldwide community not to discard damaged clothes, but to return them to be repaired, and to swap unwanted items with others. The 2011 campaign “Don’t buy this jacket” was a huge success. In it, Patagonia listed exactly how much water was needed to make one of its top-selling jackets, and how much greenhouse gas was produced, despite the company’s strong sustainability ethos. Patagonia asked customers to think twice before buying and, in light of stuffed closets, to consider whether they really needed another item. A 2020 campaign focused on climate-change-denying U.S. politicians. Patagonia doesn’t shy away from making political statements, which has helped to hone the brand’s core brand identity. Patagonia also has some pretty serious goals. It wants to be carbon neutral by 2025 and is setting its sights on becoming carbon positive soon after that.

JOKOLADE Picking a name was a matter of moments, to the point that the name was almost inevitable: German TV

entertainer and comedian Joko Winterscheidt turned chocolate into “Jokolade.” So far, so good. It was then that the path from witty name to final product with a Fairtrade seal began to get tricky. Cocoa is farmed in West Africa under conditions that remain, for the large part, exploitive. Enter co-managing director Winterscheidt, and the bold mission behind his Jokolade: He wants to abolish modern slavery and illegal child labor, bean by bean, bar by bar. With Joko, as he is affectionately known, as the product’s celebrity ambassador, the company hopes to build awareness of this issue. Jokolade is, for instance, a partner in Open Chain, an initiative set up by Dutch chocolate maker Tony’s Chocolonely that shines the spotlight on human rights and sustainability issues. Its vision: 100% of the chocolate produced worldwide should generate a living wage for farmers. Since February 2021, German and Austrian shoppers can choose between five delicious regular varieties of Jokolade and two limited editions, available at supermarkets, in drugstores and online. The names alone are enough to melt in your mouth: How does white chocolate with caramelized hazelnuts, coffee biscuits and meringue sound? Sales of Jokolade are so good that two new flavors are being launched in the fall. So with every tasty bite, we can help to abolish modern slavery and make the world a better place by far.


EL ANATSUI If you’ve ever had the almost visceral pleasure of standing in front of one of his monumental artworks you’ll probably have found it difficult to gather your thoughts. El Anatsui’s creations are huge, awe-inspiring and practically indescribable. But let’s try anyway: The sculptures are reminiscent of vast tapestries, but instead of fabric, they are made of thousands of flattened bottle caps, stitched together with copper wire. It is upcycling in its most elevated, impressive form. “Everything that happens today or affects me or shapes how I feel, is expressed in my work,” says the Ghanaian sculptor, explaining what inspires him. El Anatsui’s works can currently be admired at the ICA Watershed in Boston, until September, or at the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea in Rome.

VESTIAIRE COLLECTIVE For those whose French is a bit rusty: “Vestiaire Col-

lective” translates as “dressing room collective.” And that in turn translates into the very finest second-hand items: The resale website offers blue-chip brand bargains, from Chanel to Dior, at up to 70% off the original price. Founded in 2009 by Fanny Moizant and five others in Paris, the company has been headed by CEO Maximilian Bittner (on the right) for the past three and a half years. It prides itself on its strict standards and conducts rigorous checks to weed out any fakes. Vestiaire Collective also has another, more lofty goal: to permanently change one of the most polluting sectors in the world with, in part, shamefully bad working conditions. VC steers hard in the opposite direction: Staff are given two days a year to volunteer at a charity of their choice, and the company reduces its carbon footprint by shipping direct and using 100% post-consumer and fully recyclable packaging. The first investor signed up only a year after the company launched, with Ventech funding the startup to the tune of €1.5 million. This was followed by substantial cash injections, including $20 million from Condé-Nast and $62 million from private equity firm Vitruvian. The most spectacular round was in 2021, with VC scooping €178 million. This gave it a valuation of over $1 billion, instantly elevating VC to 11th French unicorn company.

IMPOSSIBLE FOODS

The California-based company makes the impossible possible: plant-based meat and dairy substitutes that taste like the real thing. To achieve such perfect imitations of nature requires lots of science: The company analyzed animal products at molecular level and then recreated them using plant proteins and nutrients. Impossible Foods was founded in 2011 by Patrick O. Brown, a biochemistry professor at Stanford. He wanted to address the urgent problem of climate change by developing sustainable alternatives to meat. The company launched its first plant-based burger in 2016 – with a healthy side of green credentials: According to a study, the Impossible Burger requires 87% less water, 96% less land and generates 89% fewer greenhouse gases than a conventional burger. It also contains more protein, less fat and has fewer calories, and is now sold through a network of 3,000 restaurants and supermarkets. Impossible Foods employs 750 people around the world and has picked up tens of millions in investments from Google and Bill Gates. There has been criticism of the genetically modified yeast, but the company is expanding vigorously. Following on the heels of Australia, New Zealand and the United Arab Emirates, since May British restaurants have featured Impossible Chicken Nuggets and Impossible Sausage Patties on their menus. 56


GLOBALFLOW Waste management may not sound sexy, but it’s by far one of the most important issues businesses

have to cope with. Since 2012, the Stuttgart-based company GlobalFlow has been helping enterprises to optimize their waste and recyclables management and by doing so, get a foothold in the circular economy. The idea is simple: Smart recycling when disposing of waste generates cost savings and reduces waste. It’s a system where everyone gains. Founder Nadine Speidel’s vision: “Today’s rubbish is tomorrow’s raw materials. We increase the profitability of disposal processes sustainably and efficiently,” promising that on average, customers can save 15-30% of their disposal costs and cut waste by 20%. According to GlobalFlow, clean waste without cross-contamination, such as paper and cardboard, glass, monoplastics, scrap and biowaste, is particularly easy to recycle. At the other end of the scale, multilayer plastics, waste mixtures and contaminated waste fractions are problematic. GlobalFlow has more than 100 completed projects under its belt and currently serves 14 customers, including big-name German companies such as Melitta and Ritter Sport. Speidel, who runs GlobalFlow with her sister, is currently writing her first book on waste management. She is also involved in a pilot project that examines how digitalization can help in waste disposal processes.


JORO Are you familiar with the term “doomscrolling”? It describes the compulsion to excessively consume bad, depressing news on our phones – and it’s something that we’re all guilty of to a certain degree. Studies have shown that this behavior unsurprisingly has a very negative impact on our mental health and overall wellbeing, quite apart from the fact that it wastes valuable time. Enter the Joro app, which promises to provide a solution by stopping users from scrolling themselves into a spiral of doom, and instead allowing them to make a contribution to a better future. The path to this better world starts by tracking personal carbon emissions. The Joro Carbonizer calculates the carbon footprint of each purchase. For instance, if you spend 100 euros at the gas pump, you get to see how that affects your carbon balance. In the next step the app gives you suggestions for organizations that you can donate to or support to offset these emissions. The idea came from the American founder Sanchali Pal, after living in Ethiopia and India: “I saw first-hand the impact of the climate crisis, especially for poor and vulnerable populations,” says the climate tech entrepreneur. She founded a startup in 2018 and two years later had raised $1 million in capital. This year, Joro was named as an Innovator in “Time” ­Magazine’s list of 100 Most Influential Companies of 2022.


SOHOTREE Vegan leather – made of apples? Sounds tasty! “ApplePeel” is the name of this patented material, and the young Swiss startup Sohotree has been using it since 2020 to produce luxurious, beautifully designed accessories. The base comes from apple skins, a by-product of the juice industry, which are dried in South Tyrol, pulverized, processed by a company in Florence and finally coated with organic cotton. The Swiss enterprise specializes in everyday essentials: phone cases (made using two apples) and wallets in discreet colors (made out of three apples) are the bestsellers. All Sohotree products are made of this sustainable alternative to animal leather or faux leather, both of which have a terrible eco-balance as the hides are often of dubious origin and plastic production is a highly polluting process. The founders of Sohotree, brothers ­Lucas and Claudius Knecht, are already generating five-digit monthly sales and are reinvesting profits straight back into their vision-driven baby. Pretty smart – and definitely no nasty aftertaste!

Ants that communicate with each other when building complex tunnels; intricate paper nests constructed by wasps; birch bark that protects trees from the sun and from fluctuating temperatures: These are the type of phenomena that fascinate Neri Oxman and from which she draws her conclusions. She compares concrete columns of uniform thickness with the trunks of palm trees, which are less dense on the outside than at the center, and then invents a 3D printer that can cast variable thicknesses of concrete. Nature is her model, but Oxman doesn’t imitate it, she makes computations, creates new things and considers scalability. Oxman spent the majority of her childhood in her parents’ architecture studio in Haifa and in her grandmother’s garden. There, surrounded by fig and olive trees, the little girl watched the clouds, and developed her deep connection to nature. Oxman’s parents are both respected architecture professors, and Neri and her sister grew up in a household where design was part of everyday life. After completing her military service in the Israeli army, she began medical school but after two years switched to architecture, which she studied in Haifa and London. She earned a PhD at the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, where, shortly afterwards, she was offered a professorship. In 2015 Neri Oxman held a TED Talk that so far, has been viewed nearly 2.8 million times. In it, she talks about how nature offers custom-made solutions, not uniform ones: “Our facial skins are thin with large pores; our back skins are thicker with small pores. One acts mainly as filter, the other mainly as barrier. And yet, it’s the same skin, no parts, no assemblies.” Nature differentiates and demonstrates flexibility, whereas humans come up with standardized objects that are industrially produced. Oxman’s life work, at 46, would easily fill three lifetimes. What she does is just as hard to categorize as Oxman herself, because she does so many different things, from creating highly esthetic objects to inventing robots that can print a house. In 2018, she won the Cooper Hewitt National Design Award for interaction design. Jenny Lam – one of the judges and a leading ­designer at Oracle – said Oxman could

just as easily have been nominated for fashion design or product design, and regards the artist as a present-day Leonardo da Vinci. Oxman regularly introduces her projects on the world’s biggest and most influential platforms: the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Smithsonian Design Museum or, two years ago, MoMA in New York, where she had a solo exhibition entitled “Neri Oxman Material Ecology.” Material ecology is her name for the discipline she established. It describes the fruitful union between ecology and the artificial world. For the MoMA exhibition, Oxman continued the silkworm project she had been working on since 2013. The result was a giant pavilion, six meters high and five meters wide, spun by over 17,000 silkworms whose productivity had been boosted with the aid of computers and robots. Unlike in conventional silk production, not a single larva died. The combination of technology and biology makes this possible. Oxman’s breadth of thinking is enormous, she sets her mind to exploring, rethinking and recreating just about everything. Her vision is to create buildings whose facades can adapt to changing weather conditions as well as to light; building parts that can regenerate themselves like the cells of the human body, or, alternatively, can be programmed to disintegrate after a specified period when they are no longer needed. As early as 2014, Oxman created wearables containing living organisms within them. Her goal: to set in motion synthetic biological processes that could one day enable humans to survive on other planets by transforming solar energy into sugar, for instance. Six years before that, in 2008, she already expressed what she saw as a unique opportunity. At Burda’s annual DLD (Digital, Life, Design) conference in Munich, she said: “We are going to a new period, a new paradigm in design,” away from serial production and the repetitions of the machine age and toward the new possibilities offered by the digital age. “Now we can work with difference and differentiation. We can begin to inform the way we design spaces and products and experiences to be custom fit and continuously changing and adapting.” Four years ago, Oxman involuntarily entered a very different kind of limelight when the media spun a story connecting her romantically to Brad Pitt. At the time, however, she was in a relationship with the investor and hedge fund manager Bill Ackman, now her husband, and in the spring of 2019, she gave birth to their daughter. Another important development: After about 10 years of teaching at MIT, Neri Oxman has opened her own design and research laboratory in Manhattan. Stay tuned! Would you like to know more?

The Monastero Santa Rosa Hotel & Spa is considered one of the most beautiful hotels on Italy’s Amalfi Coast.


THAT’S AMORE!

Anyone who has ever driven along the Amalfi Coast can relate to that tingly feeling: the happiness that sets in the ­moment your gaze travels across the steep cliffs, those pine trees, bending down like sculptures towards the deep blue Mediterranean Sea. Discover this area by boat – and you may actually fall in love. That’s how the beautiful story of a grieving lady from America and the Monastero Santa Rosa Hotel & Spa began... WORDS: Michaela Cordes PHOTOS: © MSR

Her advisors were against it, but Bianca Sharma knew she just had to buy this magnificent place.

The famous infinity pool is built into the cliff like an oversized bowl.


E

nchanting – that’s what it’s like to arrive at the Monastero Santa Rosa h ­ otel. The magic begins with a glass of icecold lemonade and a breathtaking view. Standing on the balcony of the former monastery, my view travels down. I see scented lemon trees, magnificent olive trees... ...a magical garden, blooming pink bougainvillea and romantic pathways that lead downwards across four steep terraces, culminating at the pool. And all of this framed by the deep blue Mediterranean Sea. After an 80-minute drive from the airport in Naples, we stop at the inconspicuous, almost hidden entrance – one that guests have been known to drive right past. My arrival is announced with a loud toll of a bell, just like back in the 17th century when nuns still lived here and welcomed their visitors to the monastery. After entering the hotel, I am immediately handed a refreshing drink and invited to step out onto the small balcony across from the reception desk to take in the view. And what a spectacle it is! I see tiny boats drawing white lines across the deep blue sea as they cross back and forth between Amalfi, Positano and the isle of Capri. Below me, sea gulls glide in the air, circling the magnificent property proudly, as if claiming the Monastero Santa Rosa Hotel & Spa as their own. All of this beauty must have captivated the American Bianca Sharma in much the same way 22 years ago when the hotel’s actual owner first set eyes on these extraordinary premises high above the Mediterranean. After the sudden and premature death of her husband, the former Montessori nursery teacher and mother of two grown sons went on a trip with her family and friends to the beautiful Amalfi Coast in search of consolation. “I spotted the monastery from the sea and was intrigued by the stone structure that seemed to grow directly from the cliff,” Bianca Sharma said in an interview with U.S. trade magazine “Leaders.” “When I asked the boat captain about the structure, he told me it was a monastery and that it was for sale. Something strongly pulled me to want to learn more, and I returned to the U.S. with a dream of bringing this abandoned building to glory by creating a luxury hotel.” “Prego, signora,” says the concierge, drawing me from my reverie and taking the empty glass from my hand. “May I show you to your room?” We walk together down the cool, dark covered walkways, past the nuns’

old ­­confessional where guests are invited to leave feedback today. The bright terrace on the hotel’s top floor is just the place to watch the glorious sunset and enjoy a spectacular, 180-degree view across the Gulf of Salerno. The first thing I do when I get to my suite is open the windows – and I am relieved to see that I can enjoy the view over the gardens onto the wide expanse of sea here too. When furnishing the 20 rooms and suites, Bianca Sharma took particular care to retain some of the building’s austere character. Warm mahogany wood combined with precious, light-hued textiles create a wonderfully harmonious effect in the former nuns’ quarters. And despite the monastic esthetic, guests want for absolutely nothing when it comes to coziness and comfort. The 20 to 25-square-meter rooms – there are only a few suites, each with a private balcony, and only one with a 75-square-meter terrace – were created by combining two or more of the original nuns’ cells. And they feature every technical luxury you can imagine. Guests can enjoy listening to music or watch a movie, and there are even two screens for those who come equipped with their own media library. Great attention to detail has clearly been paid to every part of the Monastero Santa Rosa, and guests see this wherever they look. Instead of a conventional Do not Disturb sign, the ones here are hand-painted on wood with a leather strap. On the front, they show a nun with her eyes closed, holding a finger to her lips. On the back there’s a scene of nuns straightening up a room. The restaurant menus are also decorated with lovely illustrations that depict, among other things, flying nuns with red umbrellas in their hands, tumbling into the garden from the top floor of the hotel. As I’m unpacking my suitcase I notice the two little sfogliatelle (literally “lobster tails”) that have been placed in my room as a welcome treat – a delicious pastry made of phyllo dough, which was invented by the nuns of this very monastery. For years, they kept the recipe to themselves but today these


Renovations took 11 years. But after operating for almost as long, the hotel has won many prizes.

The hotel’s highest terrace overlooks the Gulf of Salerno and is a great spot to enjoy the sunset.


delicate cream-filled pastries are known all over Italy. I take a bite and have to admit – they’re heavenly. No wonder Bianca Sharma was so enamored of the old monastery because a lot of history has taken place within its thick walls. Built in 1680 by the Pandolfi family to provide accommodation for Dominican nuns, it became part of the existing Santa Maria di Grado church. In 1866, the monastery was deconsecrated by the Catholic Church and turned over to the municipality, but the remaining nuns were allowed to continue living there until 1912. A short time later, the building was discovered by the Sicilian hotelier Massimiliano Marcucci, who bought it and turned it into a hotel. The last member of Marcucci’s family died in 1998 and a distant relative living in northern Italy inherited the property. By the time Sharma noticed it, the Monastero Santa Rosa had fallen into disrepair. After taking a good look at the state of the property, her financial advisor tried to discourage her from buying it: There was no infrastructure to speak of, the former monastery had only three bathrooms serving all of the rooms and really, did she as an American want to get involved in a business venture in southern Italy? But Bianca Sharma wouldn’t be dissuaded and refused to give up her vision. Bureaucratic hurdles and time-consuming renovations caused repeated delays, and so the Monastero Santa Rosa Hotel & Spa didn’t open in its current form until 11 years later. Since then, and in a relatively short space of time, it has won many significant awards – a fact the owner is proud of, and rightly so. In 2019, the Monastero Santa Rosa was ranked “Top Hotel in Italy” by Condé Nast Traveler and in 2020 it was designated “Hotel of the Year” at the European Hotel Awards. This year, celebrated chef Alfonso C ­ rescenzo joined the team, and the Il Refettorio restaurant, which boasts a Michelin star, draws many tourists from the area, not just guests of the hotel.

Sitting at the bar with hotel director ­ erdinando Alfano, who kindly invited me to F join him for a pre-dinner drink, I ask whether Bianca Sharma is still very much involved with the running of her hotel in Italy. “Oh, absolutely!,” he exclaims. “I have a meeting with her in Positano tomorrow, we have some important matters to discuss.” ­ Bianca Sharma loves coming here in the spring best of all because she likes to be around to prepare the hotel for the coming season. She still commutes back and forth between the Amalfi Coast and her two residences in the U.S., one in Colorado and the other in South Carolina. And instead of talking to journalists about her hotel, she lets it speak for itself. Her son Nathan is managing partner and helps his mother run the hotel. Dressed in elegant evening attire, the other guests slowly gather on the terrace for a sundowner. Soon, they will head to the restaurant for dinner. Later this evening, I too will be given a taste of what the kitchen has to offer. I rise very early the next day and take the elevator to the garden level, from where I walk down some steps to the pool just as the sun is coming up. The other guests are presumably still sleeping and there’s no one else around, but a pool attendant nevertheless brings me an iced coffee. I appreciate the luxury of having this small corner of the property to myself. I’m tempted to hang onto the side of the heated pool for hours, gazing over the edge and admiring the rocky outcrop. I watch in silence as the first rays of the sun begin to sparkle on the water. In the afternoon, after a delectable visit to the spa, which has a steam bath, sauna and jacuzzi, I relax for a few moments by the crowded pool where I can’t help but notice that the mood is entirely different now, as are the colors of nature all around me. I decide to go down to the pool every morning for the rest of my stay, make a ritual of watching the sunrise on my own. And every morning, iced coffee automatically appears. I only leave the magical clifftop castle twice. The first time, I take the hotel shuttle into the nearby town of Amalfi, but don’t stay very long because I find it hard to ignore the bustling crowds after the exquisitely peaceful atmosphere I’ve become accustomed to at the hotel. My visit to Ravello, just a 20-minute drive away, is far more enjoyable, and I spent several hours admiring Villa Cimbrone and Villa Rufolo and enjoying the magnificent gardens. On the way back to the hotel, I catch sight of the M ­ onastero Santa Rosa clinging to the clifftop high above me. Pointing to it my driver says, the respect evident in his voice: “Signora Sharma is very much admired here!” Would you like to know more?


Everything’s exquisite here. The restaurant Il Refettorio boasts a Michelin star.

As if growing from the rock. This is how Bianca Sharma (photo, left) first set eyes on Monastero Santa Rosa from a boat.

Light marble and high vaulted ceilings – mirrored for symmetry along a central axis – give the house a palatial feel.


The expansive master bedroom on the second floor opens onto a semi-circular balcony. Directly adjacent to the master bedroom itself are two exceptional Tom Ford-inspired his-and-hers bathrooms. They boast the finest black and white marble, along with exquisite mirror features. More wellness opportunities await residents and guests alike in the pool and spa area on the lower ground floor.

p on the third floor, a wooden staircase leads the way up still further. A skylight window folds open, out onto the roof terrace – where truly spectacular views over Central London await. Almost close enough to reach out and touch, Victoria Tower rises up majestically between brick façades and chimneys. Atop this, the tallest tower in the Palace of Westminster, the Union Jack can be seen fluttering in the wind.

A real highlight in the central stairwell is the gilded glass dome with its opulent ornamentation.

Big Ben, one of London’s most famous landmarks, soars skywards at the northern end of the resplendent British Parliament building. Gazing further out over the rooftops of the city, Westminster Abbey is also visible. Mansion House has truly esteemed neighbours, right in the very centre of London. Stood on the pavement outside the building on Cowley Street, there is no clue as to the magnificent views to be had from the roof. Yet still the imagination is set in motion – with an impressive Westminster façade that suggests an impressive grandeur dwells within. At the very heart of the British establishment, just a stone’s throw from Parliament and the north bank of the River Thames, the five-storey Mansion House boasts a front façade that is over 15 metres wide, with an ornate gable. Grand stone pillars flank the heavy, wooden entrance doors. Decorative white stonework frames the red brickwork beautifully. The building was designed by the renowned London architect Horace Field and built in 1904, originally as the headquarters of the North Eastern Railway. In the 1980s, the building then served as the headquarters of the British Liberal Democrats, the party having moved into No. 4 Cowley Street shortly after being founded. Decades on from this, the building has not only been given a new name – it has also, for the first time in its history, taken on a new identity as a private residence. Mansion House has been transformed into its renewed and resplendent self by London-based luxury devel-

oper Saigol DDC. Its restoration has involved preservation of the property’s original features, which include dark wood panelling in the main reception rooms and central stairwell. The project called on the expertise of master craftsmen who are also involved in the maintenance of some of Britain’s greatest buildings – including Windsor Castle, the Royal Academy and the Houses of Parliament. The listed building has a wealth of striking historic features that enhance its charm and regal opulence. The reception hall boasts dark wood panels set against light marble floors and high vaulted ceilings with gold accents, with a beautiful symmetry along the central axis like an open book. An intricately decorated, gilded glass dome allows daylight to flood down onto the main staircase. There is also an elevator on hand to transport up to eight people to the upper levels. With living interiors spanning some 1,000 square metres in total, Mansion House offers its owners and guests every comfort and convenience. On the ground floor, the large kitchen and breakfast area open out to one of two terraces. The spacious dining room seats up to 16 people. The panelled salon, which is almost ten metres wide with five splendid windows, takes up the majority of the first floor. Separated by double doors is the games room complete with a billiard table. The wine cellar, bar room and a second living room with original cornices and bay windows leave nothing to be desired when it comes to entertaining guests in the evenings. Dark herringbone parquet floors, opulent chandeliers, premium fabrics and light cream tones make sure that lavish style and comfort abound throughout the property. The master bedroom with a balcony on the second floor boasts a walk-in dressing room with mirrored wardrobe fronts, in addition to two beautiful marble bathrooms. Guests can be accommodated in the other four sumptuous bedrooms, each also boasting an en suite bathroom. The house also presides over two bedrooms and bathrooms on the third floor for staff, together with a kitchenette. Owners and guests can relax in absolute opulence on the lower ground level. The private spa features a ten-metre pool, in addition to a Whirlpool, sauna, steam room and a fully equipped gym. The pool area opens out to a charming walled garden to the rear.

PERSONAL

A place for all

Ester has a project that’s very dear to her heart. It’s based in Jardim Colombo, part of the Paraisópolis favela in western São Paulo where the 27-year-old grew up. The contrast between her community and the adjacent Morumbi neighborhood couldn’t be greater: From a highrise building with private pools, residents can look down onto the precarious living conditions across the fence in the favela. Growing up, young Esther could hardly dream of such wealth. Her neighborhood didn’t even have a park where she and her friends could play or hang out. The only open space in the closely built-up community was a huge and growing garbage dump that drew rats and cockroaches and produced toxic gases. Years later, as an adult, Carro returned home with an architecture degree in her pocket, a young son and a mission: to transform the desolate dumping ground into a leisure and activity space for her community –­ inspired by P ­ arque Sitiê, an eco-park created in 2005 from a landfill site in Vidigal favela in Rio de Janeiro. In 2017, Carro established the Fazendinhando initiative to clean up the trash on the 1,000-square-meter site, an arduous task she took on with the help of residents and local organizations. Little by little, Parque Fazendinha came into being – a place, finally, for people from the community to gather and meet. One year later, it hosted its first art and culture festival. But Ester Carro isn’t finished, not by a long shot: The park was only the beginning of a series of projects that the architect has initiated to help people and improve life in the community where she grew up.
