maximises efficiency by placing 292 units on the 35,000m² site which, considering the desirable location, positions it perfectly at the intersection between luxury and metropolitan living. Working closely with award-winning architecture firm Daffonchio & Associates, the design of the development seeks to set a higher standard for upmarket living by placing an impetus on negotiating the perfect balance between lifestyle, convenience and sustainability. Elegant homes, expansive gardens and tree-lined streets make Hyde Park one of Johannesburg’s most sought-after suburbs. And that’s just the beginning of what this established area has to offer the discerning investor. Positioned in the hub of the city’s Northern Suburbs, Hyde Park is a quick commute to Rosebank, Sandton and surrounds

and is conveniently located within easy reach of the Gautrain. Hyde Park Corner, at the intersection of Jan Smuts Avenue and William Nicol Drive, offers a combination of high-end shopping, dining options and entertainment Situated in the upmarket suburb of Hyde Park in Johannesburg, South Africa, the brief for 38 Morsim Road was to develop 12-standalone houses that offer the modern family a dynamic living environment which maximises privacy, security and luxury. An important aspect of the project was to maintain as many of the existing mature trees on the site as possible, thus providing shade, privacy and beauty throughout the development. The use of passive solar design through the orientation of the homes as well as pergolas ensures yearround comfort and energy efficiency.

  I and UAE, M+N Architecture was tasked with designing a new sustainable headquarters for Provis and Khidmah, subsidiaries of Abu Dhabi real estate developer Aldar. The client’s brief was clear from the beginning: transform a windowless shopping mall unit of almost 3000m² into a sustainable and contemporary working environment for around 200 employees. Located on the first floor of Yas Mall, Abu Dhabi’s biggest shopping centre, the office adopts eco-friendly features to ensure maximum natural light, reduced water consumption and the use of recycled materials.

The sustainabile approach to the design was attested by the achievement of the USGBC LEED Platinum certification for commercial interiors. Situated across three levels, the spaces required some important demolition works in order to create windows and skylights to bring natural light inside the working area. One of the main design features is a 3D ceiling made of gypsum that is enveloped in LED strip lights running along its edges. Fitted out by contractor Design Infinity, vibrant and collaborative open spaces balancing natural and artificial light were created throughout, whilst enclosed private spaces were designed for individual work and for quick meetings among employees.

With specialisations in several design fields the diverse team strives to bring forth distinctive excellence that challenges the design trends of today. The company’s Nüwa Asian fusion restaurant project in particular is a showcase of the hard work and dedication that goes into every design. After a full review of the food and beverage market, Mori Co discovered a lack of Asian restaurants in Egypt. They therefore decided to introduce the new Asian Fusion concept Nüwa – an Asian restaurant offering plates from many different regions of the continent. Given the fact that this is Nüwa’s first branch in Cairo, the choice of its location was very important. MB Designs decided on

2020-2021

housing the restaurant in the Capital Business Park, which is a business centre in one of the most significant neighbourhoods in Cairo: Sheikh Zayed. The design process was inspired by the Asian culture. The colours schemes chosen were earthy and natural, with the usage of dark green symbolising harmony and growth in Chinese culture, while in Japan it embodies freshness. In terms of important elements, the bar was placed front and centre ensuring that it was the main focal point. Pillars, wallpapers, accessories and lighting all came together in perfect harmony to create the right amount of balance. The wallpaper in particular is inspired by Chinese art and addresses specific topics of which nature is dominant, whilst the pillars are used to evoke heroic tales.

The project, which is located in Eastown Residence, New Cairo, is a two-floor apartment, with a dedicated outdoor area overlooking the integrated designed landscape. The interiors maintain a very calming palette, one that is earthy and neutral and yet remains vibrant by the use of numerous accent touches. The true splash of colours results from the owner’s valued art collection. The shelving unit which is one of the main design features provides a beautiful spatial separator as well as a display area for items with sentimental value. The primary area of the ground floor acts as a ‘great room’ which

combines the kitchen, dining and living area in one shared space. By eliminating all barriers in the kitchen such as the walls and doors that traditionally separate a kitchen from the rest of the living area in a home, MB Designs created a freeflowing space. The master suite in particular is reserved as a bespoke haven, created exclusively for the clients. The space was designed using calming light tones, aquamarine accents, and brass touches. The en suite bathroom was designed to highlight the backwall material, as well as to create a warm glow within the space. The pendant next to the sink creates an alternative lighting mood, fully transforming the look and feel of the area.

In 2018 the company entered into a joint venture with Living in Interiors, becoming one of the greatest furniture and home decorations retailers in the State of Qatar. Today the company manages five showrooms and represents over fifty international brands. Butterfly Design Studio has three awardwinning projects, one of which is the P-195 offices. According to the client, the main feature of the corporate identity is their logo. The concept is based on the coordinates, location, time and countdown. Inspired

by the logo of the P-195 offices, the design is minimalistic and futuristic. The light and colour set the cyberpunk feel and within it a wider space is created, keeping a sense of secrecy. The company’s private residence project in Doha combines luxury and uniqueness. Adding a contemporary style to Moroccan elements was the main challenge in this project. The client’s expectations were to have a unique interior with plenty of wall décor, colour, mouldings and shapes.

Waterfall was designed to grow with its community and integrate seamlessly with the surrounding infrastructure, ultimately combining over 28,000 residential units housing an estimated 80,000 people, with approximately 2.5 million square metres of Gross Leasable Area (GLA) for commercial, retail and office space, which will eventually accommodate a further 95,000 people. Situated on a 2,200-hectare tract of land, Waterfall is the first property development project in South Africa where developers have come up with a method of creating bankable

leased land, with major banks financing both property development as well as end-user residential property acquired on a leasehold basis. It is an extraordinary project in the sense that, unaffected by the constraints of older developments and existing infrastructure, it has allowed developers and planners to create a new city from a blank slate, all in accordance with contemporary urban design philosophy and planning principles. Offering integrated live-work-shop-play environments that are secure, ecologically sensitive, convenient and easily accessible, Waterfall provides unsurpassed quality of life in a vibrant urban setting. It features everything from secure residential developments and retirement villages, private schools and a hospital, to office buildings and business parks, hotels, fitness centres and a range of entertainment and shopping destinations like the iconic Mall of Africa.

When the clients requested a home of overwhelming luxury, Dubai Design Group created “Whispering Classic”. It is truly a love story between art, gold and pink camellias. As soon as you enter this majestic home, you can see what kind of masterpieces were put on this astonishing project. The spiral staircase enveloped in 1300 porcelain roses, camellias and anemone flowers is the dominant

masterpiece of the interior. 24-carat gold leaves were used for the patina of fine decorations – it is very difficult to use, because there is a very thin border between real art and tastelessness. Professional gold masters and artists spent 120 days putting together the 24-carat gold leaves throughout, which accumulated to 7kg of gold. The luxurious hall is decorated with gorgeous lighting, chic mirrors, consoles, real frescos, and beautiful chandeliers in the shape of a big bouquet adorned with golden leaves and pink flowers.

 , sophistication and contemporaneity, Design House Interiors created this unique and creative residential interior private residence project in Qatar. The project was inspired by world-class hotel lobbies, whilst maintaining the essence of Qatar living. The company was assigned to design the formal areas of the house and the master bedroom, which are all located on the ground floor. The client was very clear with the direction of the aesthetics: she was keen on incorporating wood finishes, as well as a warm neutral colour palette with subtle accents. As a woman who loves to host parties, she wanted the space to serve as many guests as possible. One of the focal elements in the interior was the rotating patterned brass partitions in the foyer. The patterned partitions are reminiscent

of Islamic Mashrabiyas, whilst they also created an element of closure to certain areas without fully enclosing the spaces. The ‘majlis’ is an Arabic term for a space which hosts a large number of guests, and is placed directly adjacent to the main entrance of the home. Several of these areas run throughout the villa, with the main one located on the right side. A selection of functional furniture, with seating aligned against a wall was incorporated. A beautiful beige carpet with diagonal grey lines was customised to the size of the majlis. On the other hand, the dining area was finished in dark walnut, with the walls cladded in engraved wood, along with a three-metre buffet station which subtly melds into the space. With this project, Design House Interiors has fully achieved its clients’ dream concept.

 D  C is one of the leading companies in construction, interior decoration and refurbishing of palaces, residences, hotels, resorts and office buildings, among many others. The company was given the task of restoring a villa located in the old downtown of Riyadh. The style of the abode was based on an older traditional layout composed of two entrances, one for men, another for women. It had become outdated and not in line with the new vision of the country. The windows were small, and in some cases non-existent – the rooms were clustered and based on an impractical octagonal partitioning. Horizon Design had to bring natural light into the house and create more open spaces,

as well as four bedrooms. In order to create openness, the house had to be redesigned in a more symmetrical and angular layout. While in the midst of the process, the company realised that the style of the home was becoming too modern and since the clients’ father was moving in, they had to add a touch of classical elements to make him feel comfortable. Earthy tones remained dominant, with a mixture of wood and marble components. Ceilings were kept simple and bright, while gold leaves took centre stage on the main tables. A playful floor created more interest in dining room, while the entrance was designed to refract light by using a matt leather marble treated finish.

BD C  composed of XBD Interior Design and XBD Architecture. This collaboration brings together an array of skills in both residential and commercial projects. Private Villa – Hidd Al Saadiyat was designed for a young family. XBD focused on careful spatial planning and creative design solutions to create a contemporary and luxurious space. Emphasis went into creating a comfortable and elegant transition between all spaces. The overall design brief for this exceptional private villa at Jumeirah Golf Estates was to create a family friendly home in the signature XBD style on a restricted budget. By keeping a neutral palette but also introducing bursts of colour, XBD fulfilled one of the main

requirements to create ‘a sense of serenity and peace with elegant accents’. This winsome salon in Mirdif City Center was designed for the UAE launch of the famous ‘Juice’ salon chain. The aim was to create an elegant, feminine, and natural space. The design style was modern yet vivacious, and the colour scheme neutral with an organic palette as the furniture and joinery were going to be main focal points. The design brief for the dynamic Private Villa - JSR03 was to create a family home that accentuated the stunning views. The signature XBD Collective contemporary style with sporadic classical touches were used to achieve the client’s brief. The golden mashrabia elements on the exterior façade really made this project unique.
