Its award-winning project, Via Montejo in Merida, strives to have the soul of a city, featuring a series of urban zones within a master plan. These are defined by use, location and the relationship between architectural and landscape design. Each parcel is intended to attract different users at various times of day, appealing to a wide range of people and extending the active hours of the mixed-use project. With its more than 600,000m² of construction on a plot of 250,000m², this visionary project represents one of the most impressive urban rescues of deteriorating areas in the southeast of the country. What used to be an abandoned industrial area is

now a living ecosystem, with beautiful lakes, gardens and other essential amenities for a tranquil lifestyle. The development will contain a combination of high-rise, mid-rise and low-rise buildings; a series of signature open spaces; and a system of both vehicular and pedestrianised streets to link the varied uses within the master plan and connect the project to its existing context. The integration of retail, dining, entertainment, office, hospitality, institutional and residential uses will create a new hub of activity for the bustling city. At the heart of the project is a large water feature which will act as a unifying element and central amenity for both residents and visitors to enjoy. Without doubt, Via Montejo will become a destination attraction with an unambiguous sense of community.

 D L represents one of the final opportunities to own real estate on Fisher Island in Miami, Florida – one of the world’s wealthiest zip codes. Developed by Fisher Island Holdings, it is the second award-winning, ultra-luxury condominium and the final building in a two phase ‘velvet rope reserve’ residential development. Its sister building, Palazzo del Sol, won the ‘Best Residential Building’ award upon its completion in 2017. Developer and 15-year Fisher Island resident, Heinrich von Hanau, chief executive of Fisher Island Holdings, engaged Miamibased architect Kobi Karp and Swiss landscape architect Enzo Enea to design Palazzo del Luna for the next wave of owners. Taking elevated luxury one step further, the project also features updated floorplans and amenities designed by the internationally renowned

firm, Champalimaud Design. The 10-storey boutique building with an enormous 5,110m2 footprint is comprised of 50 lavish residences ranging from 353m² to over 930m². Property choices range from three-bedroom homes to an exclusive centre penthouse complete with private rooftop terrace with pool, spa and outdoor kitchen. Each of Palazzo Della Luna’s residences provides unobstructed 360-degree views of the Atlantic Ocean, famous South Beach, Biscayne Bay and Downtown Miami. This is thanks to a prime location on the final parcel of 8.1 acres of waterfront land. Other major goals that were achieved include harmonising the modern building with the private island community’s existing Mediterranean style and strict architectural codes and standards. The developer has also ensured the ‘indoor/ outdoor’ lifestyle Florida is prized for is

maximised as often as possible; be it in the design of the deep and abundant unit terraces or the creation of a Central Park with bocce court, croquet lawn and gardens uniting the outdoor amenities of Palazzo Del Sol and Palazzo Della Luna. Interiors designed by Champalimaud and built by ASR Interiors reinterpret the established concept of a European palazzo by combining traditional refinement with classical grandeur and contemporary aesthetics. Emphasised cores are juxtaposed with a delicate layering of elegant materials such as marble, gilded glass, bas-relief and terrazzo mosaics to create a sense of fluidity and movement. The project’s target market represents the true one per cent of the world’s most affluent. Therefore, its residences are typically acquired as a third or fourth vacation home by ‘global citizens’ who spend each year traversing the

world from property to property with their families or on business. The island’s private school has also attracted several young families with children to make Fisher Island their primary residence during the school year. Amenities are equally geared towards clientele who are accustomed to the fullservice luxuries of the world’s finest hotels. They include a butler-serviced aperitivo bar and waterfront lounge, two swimming pools serviced by attendants, a plus cinema-style theatre, hair, make-up and nail salon, state-ofthe-art fitness centre designed by The Wright Fit, business centre, massage and treatment rooms and a Kidville Cove children’s playroom. All of these important elements have established Palazzo Della Luna as the true jewel in the crown of Fisher Island, representing Florida’s and the United States’ most exclusive coveted real estate.

Mongoose Developments Ltd Sugar Ridge, PO Box 153

Jolly Harbour, St Mary’s , Antigua

  A, West Indies, Mongoose Developments has won two awards relating to its project Sugar Ridge. It was conceived in 2005 by the McCauley family from the UK to be a high-end, mixed-use addition to the Jolly Harbour area of Antigua. It has a far-reaching, 360-degree vista of pristine forested gullies, rolling landscape, picturesque villages and over the turquoise Caribbean Sea and palm-lined beaches to Five Islands Bay. The mixed residential, commercial and hotel development has been master-planned by leading Caribbean architect, OBM, to allow its residents privacy, tranquillity and a wide range of on-site, five-star facilities. These include Carmichael’s fine dining restaurant, Sugar Club restaurant and lounge, Aveda Concept Spa, fully equipped Cybex gym and The Shed yoga pavilion. Round the clock security within

this gated community ensures that residents’ homes, families and guests will be safe and undisturbed. Sugar Ridge has five retail units which house a boutique, real estate sales office and car rental operation, while a conference facility and hotel reception flank the car park for 30 vehicles. Behind the reception lie the development’s 60 hotel rooms nestled into the hillside in groups of four. Accessed by its own entrance, Sugar Ridge also offers 45 fully serviced home sites, all with stunning views. Sugar Ridge’s unique style throughout the resort has been created by interior designer Charmaine Worth who has focused on the theme of sugar in every imaginable incarnation. Colours such as caramel, vanilla and molasses are mixed with textures recalling sugar cubes, sugar cane, honeycombs and crystals to create spaces that are warm and welcoming.

 H  first seen by Aidan McCauley in 2004 when his family moved to Antigua prior to developing Sugar Ridge. He was so inspired by the property that one of the resort’s model homes was based directly on this house. Ten years later when looking to move to English Harbour, Aidan was astonished to find Mollihawk was on the market. The entire site comprised two adjoining plots totalling just over an acre on flat land at the top of a hill. Although the plots connected, they had been developed independently of each other. A poorly designed and constructed cottage at the back of the main house was demolished but the main house, although run down and needing extensive renovation, was retained. Built in

1963, its walls used historic stones from the then derelict Georgian Nelson’s Dockyard which it overlooks. This traditional art of stone masonry in Antigua was upheld during the property’s renovation as a team of masons, previously engaged in the restoration of Clarence House in London, were employed for 14 months. The challenge was to re-purpose the space and to enclose it all to create a safe and secure home with a single front door. Some areas were completely rebuilt; walls were cut and new, larger windows were fitted throughout to maximise natural light and optimise the fabulous views. After three years, the property is now a beautiful three-bedroom family home with an additional one-bedroom private annexe, two-bedroom loft and onebedroom gatehouse.

 V R is an awardwinning mixed-use development by Litman Architects. The 42,000m² project in Uruguay has been designed to enable all apartments to have views of the Crystal Lagoon as its name suggests. Crystal View comprises six blocks of modern five-storey buildings with garages below. The complex benefits from the exclusive use of two clubhouses with gyms, saunas, club changing rooms, playrooms and big solariums around indoor and outdoor pools with infinity-edges to the Crystal Lagoon. The surrounding landscape of its 12-hectare plot has also been carefully designed to harmonise with the environment. The project was designed around Solanas Crystal Beach – the world-renowned Crystal Lagoon patent – also designed by Litman Architects and opened in 2016. This stunning

resort is 400 metres from the ocean at Portezuelo Beach and only a few kilometres away from the world-famous Punta del Este. The project thus benefits from an environment of relaxation amidst spectacular woods as well as closeness to Uruguay’s beautiful Atlantic coast. This low-density complex was conceived in two stages to generate a gradual growth within the area, without affecting the microclimate of the development. Its contemporary buildings will combine an elegant, simple line architecture with traditional elements. The project is harmoniously incorporated within the Solanas Vacation Club which includes restaurants, a spa, tennis and football courts, heated pools and a Convention Centre. Crystal View therefore represents an inner neighbourhood, with its own ambiance and elegance, but which easily connects with Solanas Crystal Beach.

Bathroom Worth the View

Naturally Lit Townhouse

E 2019-2020

   , Rusk transforms apartments and townhouses at New York’s premier addresses. The company has won a trio of awards for the following stunning interior design projects. Bathroom Worth the View belongs to a client who bought two adjoining apartments in a tall needle building so that he could enjoy full 360-degree views of the Manhattan skyline. The existing bathroom featured standard finishes, regular painted white walls, a dark alcove shower and a hanging mirror that blocked the view. Therefore, the brief was to change the layout to optimise both the magnificent view and increase the amount of natural daylight. Designed by plainspace Architecture and Design dpc and interior designer, Shari Pellows, the new bathroom provides exceptional views. A freestanding tub is now placed where

the original vanity stood and is raised on an attractive stone platform to conceal the piping and improve the view even more. Rusk used photographs of stones for the walls and floor to achieve matches and align the veining before cutting. This has ensured that the veining is continuous between all three planes at each corner. A slender mirror proves adequate to conceal views from the adjacent building, while integrated electronic roller shades provides additional privacy when required. The clients’ challenging brief for Naturally Lit Townhouse in Greenwich Village was to renovate the property as they were starting a family. Time was of the essence as an earlier bid to transform the property had been thwarted by a flood following Hurricane Sandy. The project, designed by Haute Architecture, includes a new double-height living room, a new rear façade featuring high performance

bronze framed windows, two additional bedrooms, a kitchen and both a rooftop and rear garden. One of the prime considerations was to address the lack of light in the interior spaces – a common problem with townhouses in general. By cutting out the ceiling slab of the first floor and then detailing the new ceiling with a dramatic bevelled cut, light penetrates deeply into the interior. Furthermore, by placing all utility spaces in a central core that travels up through the house, light is able to wrap around the core and penetrate from front to back with no hallways or openings. In this minimalist interior, the stair was designed to be spectacular and the most remarkable feature of the house. Its final design called for a monolithic concrete stair featuring a sculpted underside that is a fascinating abstraction of the human spine.

House Colorful

The goal with House Colorful was to radiate a true family feel. The clients had already renovated one of two apartments that made up a floor of a Park Avenue building when the adjoining apartment became available. This combined apartment was to be a long-term home and so both apartments were gutted to incorporate spectacular finishes. With no two rooms having the same style or colour scheme, the project is a visual education in the decorative arts. Every space was carefully designed by architect John B Murray and interior designer Katie Ridder in close collaboration with the owners. The resulting living spaces seek to express the use and purpose of each room while delighting the family. While the home has the solidarity and history of classic architecture, it is filled to the brim with colour.

The company has won a trio of awards relating to the following projects. Float by Yoo encompasses the best in architecture and development across its 14 floors and has been designed to become a landmark in São Paulo. Comprised of towers connected by free spans and walkways, each of the 29 exclusive apartments feels independent and unique. Ranging from one bedroom units, two-storey, two-bedroom options to spacious one-bedroom penthouses, all properties have two parking spaces. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer residents fabulous views, while varying lay-out plans can be adapted to different designs and lifestyle needs. Located in a dynamic neighbourhood,

Float will enhance the area’s cosmopolitan and urban environment and has been supported by an impressive development marketing plan. Nomad, which was built in Sao Paulo in the 70s as commercial offices, has now been renovated by SKR as a stunning residential building. The retrofit features open apartment plans, high ceilings, wide spans and openings which would not have been possible under current construction laws. All units feel larger than those of comparable size and are enhanced by panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows for maximum ventilation and natural light. Autonomy and mobility are key to Nomad, hence the project’s name. Addressing a wide range of public wants, it provides a great living experience to millennials as well as different generations with an ambition for something different.

  S P, Brazil, Aurinova specialises in developing residential and commercial projects of a consistently high standard. The company focuses on combining architecture, sophisticated design, sustainability and security throughout its customised projects for an exclusive audience. Quartier Auri is a bold, stylish and elegant award-winning project that called for a spectacular design. Aurinova’s initial challenge was finding a solution that would stand out from the rest; one that was not bound to a specific architect’s trademark work or to any given country or continent. A further significant challenge was to bring together various contemporary and historical architectural styles into a harmonious and

singular project that would exceed current urban standards. It was also to serve as a blueprint for Aurinova’s future construction. Consisting of just 66 apartments of three different sizes (equating to only 13% of the 8,240m² site), the remaining 87% has been used for recreational space and green areas. This extremely low density is practically unheard of in the city of São Paulo and uses just half of the legally permitted building area. Everything from the European-style bay windows in some of the master bedrooms to the striking Romanesque ground floor pillars; the English-style wrought-iron gates to the penthouse apartments with their art deco touches in the façade, every last detail was examined at length before being incorporated into the Quartier Auri project.

It has won an impressive four awards for the following two projects. The client for Casa Vista Diamante was the architect Fernando Cibrian himself, founder of the company. He wanted a home that would represent all his wishes and aspirations, allowing a total escape from the outside world. The architectural design and interiors were projected together, creating a harmonious space. A massive, five-storey home built in between cliffs more than 20 metres deep, the property has fabulous views towards two volcanoes and the lush green golf

course. Each floor is dedicated to a specific use and a personal elevator makes the entire building easily accessible. Featuring exquisite finishes throughout as well as an admirable art collection, this home truly has it all. Casa Valencia was commissioned by Pueblas State University to create a property for its annual raffle to raise funds for its students. The challenging brief was to build and fully furnish a home located in Puebla, Mexico suited to family use within a time period of just four months. Balancing functionality and good aesthetics, Cibrian’s architectural design features large interconnecting shapes to create volume play on the property’s corner plot. Nordic style interiors featuring different wood tones blend beautifully with neutral colour palettes to form a stylish family home that can be enjoyed by anyone.

Residential tenants have access to life-style amenities such as a gym, community rooms

and a rooftop terrace complete with grills and a firepit. ADG’s architectural design challenged the zoning regulations, creating the potential for larger and multi-storey units. This enabled the building to adopt a more luxurious and exclusive feel with volume ceilings, expansive windows, high-end finishes and impressive communal amenity spaces for residents. The focus was to create a distinct and luxurious building that would complement the high expectations of the local Bergen County residents. The project team favoured a contemporary style with open floor plans, expansive glass and open-air balconies to cater to both young professionals and active adults. Complete with a hip urban vibe, the design met the challenge of the client’s ambitious vision, responsibly developing a compact and complex site.

MD C – B G is a multi-award winning leader in the construction and real estate industry in Quebec, Canada. Its residential high-rise development, 1111 Atwater, is a mixed-use tower of 38 storeys located a few blocks away from downtown Montreal. It includes a commercial ground floor, 28 floors of retirement apartments and nine floors of exclusive penthouses. The tower features contemporary architecture with pure, modern lines and, through the use of curtain walls and loggias, its shape creates a distinctive appearance. Two unique architectural features are at the heart of the penthouse section of the project. Here, the Skylounge with pool terrace stretches out over space using a cantilever beam, while four pillars connecting the 31st and 33rd floors were designed to represent the address and project name. This subtle but important detail gives the building a unique

architectural signature in one of the most prestigious address in Montreal. Its two residential uses target completely different clienteles and no other condo project offers such spectacular 360-degree views. The 22 privileged owners will have access to private elevators and remarkable communal areas that have been designed by the world-renowned Andres Escobar. The penthouses are geared towards a select clientele, while the seniors’ residence is designed to meet the needs of occupants aged 75 years and over. In order to distinguish 1111 Atwater in an already very active luxury market, a strong, credible branding strategy was created to amaze and secure potential clients who have seen almost everything before. A pre-launch VIP event followed by an official launch two weeks later resulted in 40% of the condos being reserved. It confirmed that this remarkable project’s branding orientation, supported by a great marketing strategy, was successful.

   established in 2011, Dean Thomas Design Group has aimed to transform the luxury residential landscape. With an extensive, award-winning portfolio, the group is continually seeking to redefine conventions within the art of design. Vista Point, an award-winning project by Dean Thomas within the inner city of Calgary, combines the clients’ differing preferences of architectural styles. By balancing traditional materials with strong horizontal forms, the design blends the simplicity and openness of contemporary design with the comfort and elegance of tradition. The concept of the floorplan design was influenced by several key factors from the

clients’ main requirements list; a bright home that maximized the lot and its views, a winged design to keep the bedrooms separate from the entertaining areas and a four-car garage in which the bays did not dominate the front elevation of the home. Situated on one of the most spectacular lots within Calgary, the design capitalises on the astounding city and valley views from every angle off the rear. To match the shape of the lot, and to maximize the rear width, the design was dialled five degrees outward, allowing each room to capitalise on the vistas it offered. Tall ceilings and large oversized windows open up the home, harmonising the residence with the surrounding landscape.

Inspired by the elements of nature such as earth, stone and wood, her award-winning project, Guest Space, is a 218m² building of metal construction in São Paulo. Dedicated to relaxation, it is perfect for gathering family and friends together. Guests are welcomed by a charming tropical garden square with a pair of hanging rope swings and potted jaboticaba trees to complement the overall relaxing atmosphere. Due to three large, fully glazed sliding doors, the living room with its fireplace and the gourmet kitchen are beautifully connected to the garden. An absolute synonym of comfort and coziness, wood is incorporated into both the wall panels

of the living room and the wide planks of souari nut in the gourmet area. Porcelain tiles adorn the floor, while other natural materials such as stone and brick bring a harmonic balance of nuances and textures present on surfaces and furniture. This palette has been intentionally selected in order to make the most of the client’s various works of art including sculptures and photographs by well-known artists. Acoustic comfort was a key concern due to the building’s 4.30 metre-high ceilings. Thus, an exclusive designer rug has been suspended between the walls to act as both an attractive tapestry and sound absorption element. Completing the project perfectly, lighting brings together external beacons and built-in dots creating a striking, contrasting effect.

  the University of São Paulo’s School of Architecture and Urbanism, Fernanda Marques creates contemporary interiors that reflect the best of the world’s art and design. The two following award-winning projects in São Paulo are prime examples. Groenlandia is a 740m² residence constructed around 1950 that has undergone a stunning retrofit led by Fernanda Marques. The project required a number of structural alterations in order to meet the growing requirements of the clients, a couple and their three children. Living spaces were optimised to enable the family’s many guests and enhanced by the use of a soft colour palette, natural materials and an abundance of lighting solutions. A new gourmet

area was created by moving the pool area to one side of the house, while ground floor openings were enlarged to form a better integration between the internal and external areas. Panorama was designed for a keen art collector and his wife and so the main goal was to house all the works of art harmoniously, allowing for the collection’s future growth. The owner also had an aspiration to include a swimming pool in the apartment. Building the pool presented the biggest challenge as Fernanda Marques decided to place it in pride of place in the living room. Thick glass was imported and specialised labour required to install the pool which has ultimately become yet another work of art within this superb two floor apartment.

  , TigerQi Architecture specialises in a contemporary design approach which embraces the simplicity and minimalism of modern design, but which respects and relates to the regional context and built-environment traditions of the Caribbean. The company was commissioned to repair and remodel the Brandywine Estate Restaurant in the British Virgin Islands which was badly damaged by Hurricane Irma in 2017. Its brief was to rebuild a stronger, more functional and resilient space while enhancing the ‘shabby-chic’ charm of the original establishment. A key consideration, which became a major challenge, was creating a roof to cover the previously open terrace. The owner favoured a dramatic, high-peaked, round roof focused

Brandywine Estate Restaurant Remodel

around a bar or another central feature. Using heavy rustic timbers, an asymmetrical, leaf-shaped roof structure, reminiscent of an Elephant Ear leaf, was created. This echoes the floor plan of the terrace but is segmented rather than curved for ease of construction. The resulting roof visually levitates while being supported by massive buttress columns clad in stone. This has helped to create a heavier, more masculine feel to balance and ground the airiness of the roof structure. The restaurant is in the same area as the Brandywine Estate Bayside Residences, a previous award-winning project from 2018 also designed by Tiger Qi Architecture. This luxury waterfront townhouse development is currently under construction and comprises 10 three-bedroom, three bathroom properties.

The company has won a Bathroom Design award for its Sparkling Spa master bathroom remodelling project. Keith Miller was given the task of making considerable changes to his clients’ outdated bathroom as they journeyed towards transforming a secondary home into a primary family residence. The end result was a marrying of individual style, modern aesthetics and attention to detail without compromising on luxury.

To begin with, the true beauty of the shower room was masked with low-quality, outdated fixtures and furnishings. Storage was uncomfortable to access owing to the awkward corner vanity and there was a lack of ventilation due to poor planning. However, the one redeeming quality is the large window showcasing the beautiful Pacific Northwest view. A stroll into the renovated bathroom reveals cleaner architectural lines, opening up of enclosed spaces, high-quality fixtures, a customised Moroccan-style rug for visual interest, a frameless shower and the star of the show; a luxury freestanding tub transforming a mundane morning ritual into an appealing bathing experience.

A six-car underground garage, gym and service quarters were also included in the brief. The heart of the house is the terrace as it is used all year round and even houses some

Moran Apartment is a penthouse owned by a mature couple with unique requirements that influenced Uribe’s final design. Their extensive art collection was one of the main focus points throughout the property as well as maximising the impressive Mexico City views. One of the clients also has tunnel vision so high contrast colours and lighting was vital for safe navigation of the apartment. A major highlight of the interior design is the living room which has been designed around a painting by the renowned Mexican artist David Alfaro Siqueiros.
