Campbell Gray Living Sales Office

Al Istethmar Street, Abdali District, Amman, Jordan

-S R E D is responsible for the following multi award-winning projects. The Campbell Gray Amman Hotel & Campbell Gray Living mixed-use project started with the acquisition of two plots of land at the entrance of Abdali, Amman in Jordan’s new downtown. Envisioned as a landmark development highlighting the entrance to the district, it has been designed to include a five-star hotel (Campbell Gray, Amman) on one end and a residential, retail and office complex (Campbell Gray Living) on the other. All rooftops are landscaped to provide usable spaces which take full advantage of Amman’s unique climate. Additionally an underground passage was also designed to link Campbell Gray Living and Campbell Gray Amman Hotel

in order to provide a better tenant experience and more efficient integrated services. The idea of creating a gateway and a landmark framing the entrance to Abdali is apparent in the architectural design of two seemingly identical towers forming a mirror image of one another. The residential tower was fitted with balconies, while canopies adopting a folded envelope concept, unfold horizontally over the ground floor retail element. The first completed apartment at Campbell Gray Living features layer upon layer of detail in its interior design. Despite an impressive list of brands and makes, the apartment is not remotely ostentatious but instead beautiful in its simplicity. All materials are of the highest calibre and combined in a classic, contemporary style to render the apartment as stylish and comfortable as possible.

 D  a multi-award winning company based in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. It has gained an admirable reputation by delivering developments on the basis of four core elements: design, quality, affordability and community. The company has gained further accolades with the following three examples of its outstanding projects. THE VUE is a premier residential tower in a prime location between the Al Kurnaysh and King Abdul Aziz Road in the north of Jeddah. It creates an axial view through its central sculpture garden offering 35 exclusive residences with optimum views towards the Red Sea. The client’s main requirements were to create exceptional living spaces that raise the standards of living and target middle income professionals. THE VUE’s design concept evolved from the idea that the overall design of the tower

could be a direct reflection of the variety of residences within. The voids created would then be a direct result of the function of the floor plans, forming a dynamic and intriguing façade. Framing elements emphasise the voids and dynamic nature of the plans, with no two floors being alike. This design provided a forward-thinking and distinctive aesthetic which was successful in creating exclusivity and variety, providing exceptional places for people to live, work and relax for many years to come. Its exclusive amenities for residents include a club room, cinema, male and female gym and spas with private outdoor ‘New York style’ roof top swimming pools, designed to respect residents’ privacy and cultural needs. Additionally, it features a cigar room in which residents can entertain guests and hold meetings as well as a tea room for smaller, more informal events.

Diyar Al Salam

Diyar Al Salam is envisioned as a 47,000m² urban retreat within the city of Jeddah, designed to evoke a sense of tranquility and serenity. The symbol of the ‘dove of peace’ became the prevailing theme throughout the development, inspired by the meaning of its name ‘Homes of Peace’. The client’s brief was to create a community within a community, anchored around an expansive sky garden. It also called for 140 units in a variety of different types and sizes ranging from one to five bedrooms, including eight exclusive two-storey penthouses with private swimming pools. The design includes an array of amenities directly accessible to the sky garden including a club room, day care, library and separate women’s and men’s health clubs. M TOWER is a mixed-use commercial building located on the intersection of two

M TOWER

vibrant streets in Jeddah. The 11-storey building is comprised of 88 medical offices, four retail shops, two cafes and open air, elevated terraces. At first glance, the exterior gives the impression of stacked, rotating, glazed boxes. This gives a lightweight and soft aesthetic to the tower, while it is anchored by a heavy, stone-clad base. Larger setbacks on the street fronts present a more pedestrian-friendly environment, allowing for green spaces and open plazas in an effort to redefine and improve the urban nature of the street. As the increasing demand for value and accessibility dictates the choice of an exceptional location, M TOWER is able to provide a prime city position with ample leisure and entertainment facilities combined with the utmost practicality.

   with the wonders of nature and first class facilities, Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai aims to become the world’s premier residential and leisure destination. Under continuing development and set across 1191 hectares of lush landscaping, it comprises 1725 constructed and under construction homes, separated into 16 individual communities. Inspired by Mediterranean themes, homes are designed with terracotta roofs and stone façades. Each community has been given its own identity and character, complementing the surrounding landscape of golf courses, lakes and trees. Residences have been fitted out to the highest standards, with Italian kitchens, high end appliances, designer amenities and spacious gardens. Properties range from houses and villas to low-rise apartments. In certain areas

these are sold initially as plots, with the ability to construct homes to the owners’ specific requirements. Three quarters of the residences face the golf course, with the remainder overlooking lakes and natural areas. The overall plan includes extensive jogging and cycling tracks linking four community parks. Quality is the watchword for the Estates, regardless of price point. This include the development of Alandalus, an affordable luxury community that opens the project to a wider audience. Golf is, of course, the most prominent draw for Jumeirah Golf Estates. It is the only European Tour destination in the Middle East and comprises two awardwinning Championship courses designed by Greg Norman. Designated ‘Fire’ and ‘Earth’, these proudly sit amongst the finest courses in the world. Each provides its own challenges to golfers.

‘Fire’ is integrated into the desert landscape, with undulating topography and captivating flora. ‘Earth’ is centred around a more lush, garden-like design with traditional fast-flowing water features and has been ranked as one of the world’s greatest golf courses by Golf Digest. The region’s only European Tour Performance Institute offers unrivalled teaching and practice options for aspiring players. The world-class Clubhouse in the centre of the community is being further developed thanks to unprecedented demand. It includes a host of indoor and outdoor dining options, ranging from light eating at the Fresca Café and Delicatessen and socialising at the Swirl Bar and Lounge to international-level cuisine at the Flame Tree Restaurant and Grill. The Clubhouse also incorporates a gymnasium and sports club, with personal trainers and a yoga studio.

Residents can make use of meeting and events spaces, from intimate dining rooms to a newly-opened 300-capacity ballroom. Outdoor swimming pools and play areas welcome families, supplemented by an ongoing schedule of activities. A Tennis Academy provides facilities and expert coaching, while retail outlets supply sporting equipment, plus groceries. The Estate is in close proximity to the City Centre Me’aisem shopping mall with a vast variety of shopping options. The sheer scale of Jumeirah Golf Estates is breathtaking, standing as a comprehensive and masterplanned development perfectly situated close to the prime attractions and transport links of Dubai. Public transport has been accounted for too, with a dedicated metro stop planned and bus stops throughout. As it continues to evolve and develop, the Estate is sure to remain a highly desirable location for the future.

   solutions, EPL Novospace is a South Africa-based interior architecture firm creating inspirational designs for a range of clients across multiple sectors. RCL Foods is the result of a merger between five individual companies, requiring a fourlevel office building with a work environment focussed on people. The client wished to stand out from its competitors with a truly outstanding office. The intent was to foster a sense of unity and energy, with creative spaces and the opportunity to generate chance interactions. By creating an enjoyable and inspiring workplace, the attraction and retention of talented personnel can be maintained. After extensive research into the needs of the client together with similar corporates

in the same field, Novospace presented a number of overall style concepts, with the ultimate decision going to ‘Funky Raw’. Internal finishes were chosen to contrast against the white and charcoal exterior of the building, incorporating raw exposed brick, concrete, polished cementitious floors, rough sawn timber and an array of steel elements. Carpeting and internal screening has been chosen to echo the horizontal lines and shapes of the building as a whole. These rougher finishes are juxtaposed with elements of bright colour and glass components using bespoke, locally produced furnishings and light fittings. The result is a warm and rich interior that connects earthiness with modernity. This is matched with large-scale colourful art installations and

a strong visual wayfinding system. Massive typography is a feature carried throughout the project, with inspiring messages mounted, etched and patterned into walls. A subtle approach is taken to link the interior with the nature of RCL Foods’ business – the occasional table supported by cutleryshaped legs is a whimsical touch. Specific facilities needed for the project included test and development kitchens, a public food shop, cafés and a skybar. These were integrated around a dramatic central atrium to encourage collaborative working practices. Many offices are suspended and cantilevered around this atrium on multiple levels and at different angles, with striking glass walls looking out onto the area. Open staircases with mesh balustrades and natural timber

flooring retain light and airiness through the space, while bridges have break out areas with lively seating options. Small work pods and call booths are distributed through the office to allow spontaneous collaboration or immediate privacy. Throughout all this, services and electrical facilities are cleverly integrated and concealed discreetly. The ultimate result of Novospace’s work is a truly African working environment – one that departs from the familiar sameness of competing companies to create its own bespoke industrial aesthetic and identity. ‘Do things that can’t be done’ is an inspirational message proudly presented in tall letters on the wall of a meeting space – a sentiment that could be equally applied to Novospace’s philosophy.

-  estate developer FIVE Development LLC, a subsidiary of FIVE Holdings (previously known as SKAI Holdings) has won an outstanding 12 property awards across the two following projects. FIVE Jumeirah Village Dubai, which is currently under construction and is scheduled to open in 2018, is a five-star development comprising 254 serviced apartments and 247 hotel rooms. The 60-storey tower features vast outdoor living areas and panoramic views of the Dubai skyline, offering guests and residents the best of outdoor living in a high-rise tower. FIVE Jumeirah Village Dubai, which is now over 40% complete, features pioneering design principles that redefine 21st century living. Conceptualised in-house by FIVE Development’s CEO and architect, Nabil Akiki, the property’s distinctive star wing

design allows for each hotel room and apartment to enjoy a vast landscaped garden, 256 of which come complete with swimming pools. Soaring 888 feet above the exclusive enclave, the hotel and residences is a ground-breaking example of innovative architecture. Each floor rotates 30 degrees away from the level below, resulting in double height terraces on top of the lower floors forming platforms for the upper floors’ open spaces. With FIVE Jumeirah Village Dubai, FIVE Development has focused on transforming concrete corridors into streets in the sky with a suspended villa-like environment with lush green spaces that foster a true community feel. Amenities for residents and guests include a speciality restaurant, all-day dining, children’s centre, ballroom, business centre, gourmet bistro, executive lounge, gym and spa.

FIVE Palm Jumeirah Dubai

FIVE Development’s recently opened FIVE Palm Jumeirah offers guests and residents a rather different feel from its Jumeirah Village property while still maintaining FIVE’s signature indoor and outdoor living experience. Based at the trunk of the Palm Jumeirah Dubai, FIVE Palm Jumeirah Dubai offers a new level of luxurious living in Dubai with 477 large rooms and suites and 221 signature residences, all with breathtaking views of the Arabian Sea. FIVE Palm Jumeirah Dubai’s architectural style is contemporary with clean, uncluttered lines, maximising the potential for an indoor and outdoor lifestyle appropriate for a beachside location. Its central focus is the entrance, a large 20 metre by 20 metre glass cube over which the hotel mass arches. The top of the arch houses a business centre, panoramic ballroom and presidential suite. From the beach, the mass of the building is terraced

down like a Roman amphitheatre with two wings reaching out towards the beach, leaving a large central landscaped area for recreation, directly connected to the beach. Balconies and recesses in the façade create a lively and interesting look while also reducing the overall bulk of the building. Inside, Arabic culture is referenced throughout, woven into the project’s interior design in subtle ways through the use of Arabic motifs and calligraphy as reliefs on walls, screens, glass, mosaic pool linings and paving stones. FIVE Palm Jumeirah Dubai boasts a wealth of leisure amenities including two signature restaurants, a specialty Chinese Maiden Shanghai and Italian Quattro Passi, as well as a day spa, beach club, night club and three separate swimming pools. Setting a new paradigm in hospitality, FIVE Palm Jumeirah Dubai is a resort where grace meets glamour.

Kaizen Properties Ltd 14 Chivita Ave, Ajao Estate

  - high-rise development project ‘No 4’ is located on Bourdillon Road, Ikoy, the most exclusive residential area of Lagos in Nigeria. Developed by Kaizen Properties Ltd and built by El-Alan Construction of Nigeria with an architectural design by P&T Architects & Engineers based in Dubai. The ultimate design is a result of a very careful analysis of both location and culture. The brief required the 25-storey building to have two penthouses – to be occupied by the developer. There were also to be 22 four-bedroom apartments, 11 threebedroom apartments and six four-bedroom duplex apartments which would be offered for sale. Communal facilities had to match the prestigious development and included a 20-metre lap pool, children’s pool and

playground, tennis court, gym, games room and multi-purpose room. The L-shaped building’s placement on the site follows the two adjacent streets in order to secure the furthest distance from any future tall buildings which may be constructed on neighbouring plots. There are only two apartments per floor with windows facing in all four directions. As people in Lagos prefer their staff to live outside their apartment, the units have been designed with only one entrance door and a lockable door into the bedroom area for extra safety. Raising the ground floor adds to the security of the development and makes it feel less ‘fenced in’ while inside the premises. Curved balconies have been included to the two elevations facing the road to create an attractive curvilinear appearance to the

building. The balconies are large enough to be used as external rooms and relaxation areas while providing windows with shade from the sun. Their glazed balustrades also ensure residents can enjoy unobstructed views across to the lagoon. Full height floor to ceiling glazing has been used for all main living areas and bedrooms. This provides a very large amount of natural light and excellent views even when seated. A further impression of spaciousness is created by 3.2 metre high ceilings. As the site is set back from the street, it allows for large trees which break down the scale of the tower. This helps to avoid the tower appearing to ‘crush’ the neighbourhood of mainly lower buildings. With only two to three-storey houses between No.4 Bourdillon Road and the water’s edge, the tower’s elevated ground floor height enables water views

primarily from every apartment’s living/dining room and balcony. A roundabout featuring a canopy and a water body where the building’s glass lifts operate creates a celebration of arrival at the development. All indoor public facilities are placed in the garden after the lobby and beneath the tower as individual pavilions. Both the arrival and public garden area are laid out to create ‘depth’ and intrigue when moving through the public ground floor. Water bodies, a waterfall, bushes, trees and differing levels also make the garden a central theme. Without doubt, No.4 Bourdillon Road will become a prominent architectural and design landmark in Nigeria. Setting new heights and standards of luxury living in Lagos, this iconic residential project makes a lasting contribution to the cityscape.

P P  established in 2009 by an expatriate Canadian husband and Australian wife team. Having lived overseas for 19 years and moving to Doha, they discovered that finding a place to rent in Qatar was an exhausting undertaking. Customer service was distinctly lacking with calls left unanswered and much time wasted in viewing properties with complete disregard to their budget. The company’s managing director is an ex-international banker with more than 18 years’ experience in that field. This has given him a particular insight into the needs and requirements of real estate developers, property owners and investors in regard to their projects. As arguably the largest independent real estate agent in Qatar with a

The company has established an enviable clientele with longstanding relationships reflecting its commitment to perfecting unique interiors. The Westin Dubai – Al Habtoor City is an award-winning example. As Westin Hotels’ brand originates from the North West of America and the Rocky Mountains, WA International localised this theme by taking inspiration from the Al Hajar Mountains. The Westin brand’s brief and design concept was not only based on nature, it was the perfect blend of nature’s organic elements combined with the decorative arts and architecture movement of Art Deco.

The influence of Frank Lloyd Wright, an architect of far reaching vision who followed a philosophy he named ‘organic architecture’, can be clearly seen in the hotel’s spaces. The Westin brand’s colour palette is harmonious, subtle and rich and so the main lobby features a neutral base of beige grey and taupe with subtle accents of greens, blues and browns. Classic and timeless guest rooms are also influenced by the stylised motifs of the Art Deco movement. Rich, energising textures and peaceful patterns harmonise the interior mood, leaving guests transformed through a feeling of wellness and wellbeing. A stay at The Westin Dubai offers the opportunity to experience both the tranquillity of nature’s elements as well as the timeless design aspects of the Art Deco movement.

Its award-winning architectural project, Midane Private Residence, is in a fabulous location with views of Zahleh city and the Bekaa Valley. However, the shape of the plot, its access and slope all presented challenges to the property’s overall design. The client’s brief was for a high-end residential property with a 30% built up area. He also requested an independent apartment for his mother to be implemented within his residence. While it needed to communicate with the main house, it was not to affect the privacy of either properties. The apartment has therefore been designed with an independent

entrance from the roadside and a private entrance from the main residence side. The project integrates indoor and outdoor spaces in a very special way due to the importance placed on this type of lifestyle by the client. Outdoor areas including the terraces, garden, pool and Jacuzzi have been designed to be large, functional and mostly beautiful. Due to the sloping nature of the plot, the garden has been divided into two main levels. The first is an extension of the entertainment floor and can also be accessed by stairs leading from the dining room terrace. The second garden area is at lower basement level and, providing a visual continuity to the upper garden is planted mainly with fruit trees.

Targeting local, high net worth buyers, the development team’s brief was simple – to create an extension of an individual’s confident, dynamic and responsible lifestyle. This was to be achieved by offering the best of design, features and amenities. Each of the one-bedroom apartments at Capital M has a living area of 95m² with a lobby cloakroom,

The three-bedroom penthouses at roof level are twice as large and include kitchen/dining areas and double height lounges. Capital M will be the first residential building in Nairobi to achieve LEED certification offering a healthy and ‘green’ conscious lifestyle to its residents. It is also on course to become the first residential building in East Africa to achieve LEED Gold Certification.

An international Class A office building, it comprises 36 floors overlooking the Arabian Gulf and features flexible, column free floor plates of 1,500m². The design team took inspiration for the office tower from a traditional Qatari Dhow. Lean and elegant, its silhouette, materials and details fuse to create an image that quietly asserts its elegance and roots in the city. Using the inspiration of the Dhow’s sail, the façade for the tower’s south face is clad in a

prefinished aluminium shading device placed over the top of the aluminium curtain wall system. The podium is devoted to primarily above grade parking and again the Dhow is used to inspire the design. The podium’s façade provides the illusion of rippling water through the use of a kinetic façade. Clad with thousands of suspended aluminium panels the power of the wind activates the façade and gives the effect of moving water. The interior public areas continue the same theme as the architecture, drawing further inspiration from the sea. The main lobby ceilings are articulated wood following similar geometry to the feature façade. Similarly, the main reception desk is wood and glass, a contemporary abstract of this traditional sea vessel.

Al-Tijaria Tower is Arab Architect’s award-winning high-rise architecture project in the heart of Manama. The prestigious development has set a record for the tallest building in Bahrain, standing majestically at 212 metres high and covering 3,856m² of land. It will offer 280 luxurious residential units along with an infinity pool, Jacuzzi, children’s playground, games room, outdoor theatre, multi-purpose room and male and female gyms. Sports facilities include a basketball

court, tennis area and a volleyball field, while a business centre and a coffee shop add further value to the project. Following several design concepts, the client, Al-Tijaria – a Kuwaiti commercial real estate company, approved the final proposal of a slightly curved tower as it succeeded in the main aim of maximising the sea view from all units. The resulting shape not only looks pleasing but has also allowed Arab Architects to have a higher elevation as it proves more structurally stable. The tower is beautified throughout with blue, grey and silver glass panels. Their different shades express the various types of apartments while also acting as an appealing aesthetic feature. As the client’s first project in Bahrain, Al-Tijaria Tower fulfils its brief to form an exceptional landmark in the city.

By fully understanding and sharing each client’s vision, thinking and goals, outstanding results are achieved every time. The company’s latest award-winning architectural project is for Al Ghonayman Villa. The property is in a unique location with views of the skyline of Kuwait City Towers as well as a wide, panoramic vista to the sea from three sides. As the client has a daring and dynamic personality and a colourful lifestyle, she wanted to reflect her character through the villa’s design. Therefore, the concept had to be distinctive, different and unique with the capability to fulfil a number of both functional and entertaining requirements.

Consequently, the main reception rooms on the ground floor are divided into two parts, unified by a distinctive, curved wall. The master bedrooms are connected with a bathroom and dressing room via a hung transparent bridge between the indoors and outdoors. The daughters’ bedrooms are gathered together in one volume, ignoring the villa’s standard height. The dining space then ‘floats’ above the daughters’ rooms and features a panoramic window, framing the sea view. A massive space then extends between the ground floor and the roof, linking the different volumes and linear horizontal surfaces. While the lower part of the building is shown as two volumes trying to move separately in slow motion, the upper part moves in a faster motion and in different directions.

With 1,200 planned residences spanning 320 hectares, one third of the land is being kept as open spaces and nature areas for the enjoyment of residents. The estate is easily accessed via a new road from the city centre and its elevated terrain offers magnificent views over the valley towards the Swaziland mountains. Originally launched in 2008, after a promising start The Rest fell victim to the economic downturn and sales and development dried up. In 2013 it came under the ownership of Sanlam (SA’s largest

insurance company) which appointed a team of international consultants, headed by residential development specialists SecondLifestyle, to oversee the total redevelopment of the estate; this included a comprehensive upgrade of the facilities and infrastructure, as well as an expanded range of new home designs and a bird sanctuary. UK marketing agency Graham Associates managed the rebrand, relaunch strategy and promotional campaign. The results have exceeded even the developer’s most optimistic expectations, achieving record sales and elevating The Rest from the least desirable place to buy a home in the entire Lowveld region up to the #1 position in only two years.

It aims to provide superior architectural and engineering solutions derived from each project’s surrounding physical, environmental and cultural context. The first of alnasser + partners’ two latest awards relates to its own head office in Amman, Jordan. The aim was to build an efficient, functional and comfortable office building using a cubic shape to avoid wasting any available space. Located in a residential area, the structure has been given three main elements: a frame to provide a modern impression and distinguish it from its environment; an isolated core for the building’s circulation needs’ and a roof that’s expandable

for adding an extension according to the company’s future growth. The creation of JP Jets’ VIP terminal lounge called for a bold, contemporary scheme to create an outstanding, high security building with maximum safety requirements. The resulting dynamic form responds to the uniqueness of its location in the relatively rural area of Aqaba in Jordan. Through its extensive glazed section, the reception and lounge areas opens out on to the city’s vast mountainous landscape. The building’s two masses interact with one another in an articulate fashion with overlapping spaces and a rough, earthy coloured façade. This enables the structure to camouflage itself beautifully with the natural surroundings which at the same time stands out from adjacent buildings.

The company’s award-winning design for Coastal Towers was inspired by Saudi Arabia’s national tree, the Phoenix Palm. Located in KAEC, a mega project along the coast of the Red Sea in Saudi Arabia, the towers occupy a prime 60,000m² site. Coastal Towers comprises a central 60-storey tower consisting of hotel and residential apartments; two beachfront seafacing residential towers of 26 storeys each; two inland residential 36-storey towers; and beach-front retail. As prayer is an important part of Saudi culture, the central tower’s design

takes the shape of praying hands; in Islam the hands are not put together but remain separate with a space between them creating a void. The project located its most dense parts of the masterplan to capitalise on the coastline views. Due to the importance of this aspect, the towers were angled to ensure that the vast majority of the units enjoy uninterrupted vistas of the water despite the density of the development. On the ground plane, the Coastal Towers provide a much-needed extension of the coastline promenade. This provides more pedestrian connectivity with retail and F&B all along the sea facing edge of the site. Overall, the design of Coastal Towers embraces the heritage of the existing culture and celebrates its role as a community, marketplace and ecosystem.

The company’s award-winning interior design project Sun Central Convention Centre is located within the International Sun City Resort in Rustenburg, North West Province. The new convention centre is a complete refurbishment of the existing facility at Sun City, transforming it into a world-class facility with all the latest technological requirements. It has a business aesthetic conducive to conference and meeting activities, allowing users to interact and network with others within the space. The coffee shop for example, is an area for refreshment, meetings and relaxation between conference activities. There

is a sense of luxury within the stylish interior but this still remains within the business/resort design language. The use of texture, materials, finishes, colour and form all add to this interesting formula. A new pre-function space allows for networking opportunities before and after conferences outside the grand ballroom. Here the use of LED light features creates a floating effect of the floor, walls and ceilings. The King’s Ballroom is also a multi-purpose space but has a more luxurious ambience. The use of an antique mirror finish on two walls creates the illusion that the space is double the size, while chandeliers within the ceiling coves throw interesting shadows of an organic nature on to the ceiling. This contrasts beautifully with the rectilinear design language within the space.

Its award-winning design is a direct interpretation of the Nikki Beach brand, clearly developed around the beach, holiday and entertainment themes.

The property is divided into four main components – the hotel, villas, Nikki Beach Restaurant & Beach Club and the residences. Even though each of these different elements of the property can operate separately, they are all connected through the landscape as well as the

general design theme, colours and materials. The architecture is contemporary with sleek, straight and clean lines and a blurred transition between inside and outside spaces. Rooms, suites and villas are oriented towards sea or city views around an efficient double loaded corridor. The hotel’s interior design features the brand’s signature white as a dominant aspect while nature also plays an important role. This is reflected through the use of light ethnic and untreated wood, seamless flooring and unfinished concrete floors. Every piece seems to be derived from nature – directly inspired by the beach, sea and sky with an overall focus on relaxation and a feel-good holiday mood.

The portfolio is diverse, with approximately 64,000 properties under management, covering 39,000 hectares across seven municipal regions. Johannesburg Council Chamber is a prime, award-winning example. This new, state-ofthe-art facility has received a 5-star Green Star SA design certification in the Public and Education Buildings’ category. The building’s design was inspired by the term ‘lekgotla’, a Tswana word referring to an outdoor meeting space which is circular in form. Conceptually, its essence is that anyone is allowed to speak without interruption. The form itself is that of a transparent drum – a cylindrical structure enveloped

entirely by a glass façade with vertical fins covering the curved outer ‘skin’ of the building. The glass building envelope enables an uninterrupted visual link between the indoor and surrounding outdoor spaces. This allows the outside world to have a visual connection with the building’s occupants, which is symbolic of a constant dialogue between the public and municipal officials. The Council Chamber has a total floor area of 793m², excluding the services core. Its total seating capacity is 361 seats for councillors including future expansion and 158 seats in the gallery for the public and media. The interior chamber is the main focus and heart of the building and is intended to be a space that promotes transparency, dialogue and interaction between its end-users.

Its skilled consultants are extremely passionate about guiding clients from the initial concept through to a timely, on-budget completion. The company was commissioned by a client who had purchased 20 residential plots within Pearl Jumeirah, Dubai. Zen Interiors’ brief was to create a show villa to inspire potential buyers. The five-bedroom villa was designed and decorated on a tight budget but with stunning results. Most of the furniture was from Zen Interiors’ own furniture range plus a few key designer pieces. Retaining a tranquil feel was a prerequisite and so a water channel was integrated into the home to introduce a natural element. Taking advantage of the villa’s

Emirates Hills

vast natural light, superb sea views and modern vibe was a must, as was appealing to a diverse mix of viewing clients. Emirates Hills involved the transformation and remodelling of a 10 year-old villa. The client was an Indian national with a wife, two grown-up children and an extended family who required a grand home, ideal for entertaining and accommodating guests. Throughout every stage of the project, Zen Interiors adhered to a very strict time schedule to adhere to the owners’ religious Hindu doctrine. As the original five-bedroom property was very dark with classical styling and a rather cluttered layout, the first step was to create an open plan layout. A medley of earthy, warm colour was then incorporated, inspired by both the desert tones of Dubai and Indian spices.

Seef Terraces is a double award-winning, high-rise residential development by Dadabhai Construction and scheduled for completion in December, 2017. Soaring 29 storeys above the Kingdom of Bahrain’s entertainment and commercial district of Seef, it covers a plot of over 2,361m². The project features 173 studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments with private terraces plus four levels of parking and 21 leisure and entertainment facilities across two levels. It has been designed in-keeping with the housing aspirations of families seeking quality and spacious living in the heart of the city. Given its nature as a freehold residential project, Seer Terraces will attract a diverse mix of homeowners with individual and distinctive

tastes and preferences. The apartments have accordingly been fitted with high-end basic fixtures and finishes while leaving space for homeowners to furnish the apartments to their own individual styles. Dadabhai Construction has met the challenge to provide spacious living areas and all the facilities and lifestyle amenities for a modern lifestyle. At the same time the company has ensured pricing remains at an affordable level accepted by the local and expatriate community in Bahrain and the wider GCC. The apartments represent a great property choice for personal and corporate investors as the prospective ROI is as lucrative as 10% p.a. Since the commencement of its launch, Seef Terraces has developed an augmented reality app to showcase the property in 3D for a close analysis, within the comfort of one’s home/ office. This proved to be a great tool for buyers and was a classic case of using technology to ease convenience. Investors and buyers have also been given live-cam access to monitor the progress of the property on a real-time basis.

 A + P has pioneered a holistic design approach to architecture through a wide range of work from urban planning, public, civic and cultural buildings to product and furniture design. Its award-winning project Capital Tower Jeddah is composed of hotel apartments, offices, restaurants, retail shops and a banquet hall with parking across three podium floors and a basement. The client’s brief was for a unique landmark building with a contemporary design while being environmentally responsible. While developing its concept, Collaborative Architects sought to create a sense of destination; the ascension to a peak shaped by the convergence of lines drawn from its surroundings. From these lines, a pure, clean geometry is formed, creating a bold, crystal-like icon.

Both the placement and hierarchical composition of the building create various levels of green terraces overlooking the sea and defining the orientation. The linear façade treatment optimises and filters natural light into the spaces while also minimising heat gain by incorporating several different materials, as well as the alternation between solid and void areas in the facades. At 135 metres, the monumental height of the tower stands out against the surrounding buildings. This establishes an identity that redefines both the skyline and immediate area as well as the urban fabric across the city of Jeddah. Pointing upwards at the sky as a symbol of growth and progression, the tower is part of the creation of new opportunities, the transition into a new era and, ultimately, the vision of the future.
