Just by looking at these fabulous statement pieces, you can imagine a stone that has been frozen and freshly cracked to reveal a rich, golden interior.

desire The Skull is offered in two, very limited versions and the first pieces will be available from May. One of 50 pieces will be produced in DLC titanium with green fluid, and another of 25 pieces in 5N rose gold and black DLC titanium, will feature red fluid. Skull Green Eye approx £65,850 / €86,200 / $99,885 Skull Red Eye approx £73,200 / €95,800 / $111,000 

This is the first watch that keeps an eye on you, rather than vice versa. Skull, HYT’s extraordinary and unprecedented creation makes a striking impression; provocative with a bold design, it is supported by the fluid mechanics that have become the brand’s signature style. The use of a capillary, which carries a fluid to act as the hour marker, is a concept that is already mastered by HYT and its partners. However, forming the skull shape of the tube, which measures less than one millimetre in diameter, was a significant challenge. In line with the raw, primitive imagery of the Skull, HYT also decided to do away with the minutes. This shifts the main focus to the capillary, the only sensory indicator of time as it passes. To breathe life into the Skull, the two vertical bellows function continuously, causing the fluid to move. In addition, the eyes of the Skull have a life of their own. The right eye indicates the power reserve of the watch. Using a series of subtly different translucent coloured inserts, the eye gradually darkens as the piece nears the end of its 65 hours of power. The left eye hides a barely visible seconds’ dial which rotates continuously.

Part of the award winning Stellar Collection – his Stellar Console Table is a limited edition of just 25 examples inspired by the precious qualities of naturally forming amethyst geodes and machine cut diamonds.

TROPICANA INDAH A&A designers’ creativity has brought warmth to a cavernous abode with touches of class, sophistication and majesty. Gold and yellow were used to create a formal elegance, while natural light gives extraordinary beauty as the sun’s rays hit the surface of polished marbles and off-white furnishings. At night, yellow lighting lights up the home like a bright lantern. Items of beauty were carefully selected as decorative pieces against the golden spectacle of walls and fittings, mostly either lavishly dressed in sumptuous silks and damasks while others are glass and mirrors to create a feeling of well-appointed space that is sophisticated and opulent.

MARHABA RESTAURANT, KUALA LUMPUR In a tussle between tradition and modernity, A&A struck a balance to create a redefined Yemeni Fine Dining restaurant experience. Not merely a dining haven, the restaurant’s look and feel is consistently connected to the historical religious root of the Yemeni with strong permanent presence of the repeated islamic iconic eight-pointed stars. To add sophistication, the restaurant floor is a sweeping elegant sight of polished marbles and black granites lining the sections into diamonds.

He has a natural instinctive feel for planting and garden design which he then cleverly translates on to canvas. As well as great gardens, Turpin is equally entranced by allotments nestling in their own landscapes and this exhibition includes some splendid examples. The glory of the allotment lies in its patchwork of human endeavour and individuality. Each plot reflects the personal take on gardening with neat rows, without a leaf out of place, abutting an assortment of sunflowers and soft fruits.

hether you prefer intimate and cosy or wide open and spacious, a lounge is one of the most important rooms in any home. It will be used for family relaxation as well as for entertaining friends and so must live up to all expectations. Alexander James Interiors has designed many beautiful and luxurious lounges over the past 20 years and the brief frequently given by its clients is for a contemporary yet livable and homely design. “The idea that contemporary means hard lines and cold finishes is now a thing of the past,” explains Natalie Rudland, designer. “The layout of the room should always be practical and comfortable. Over the years, we have built up strong relationships with master craftsmen and frequently commission bespoke items of furniture. These pieces are designed by us in the exact finishes and colours to create a perfect match that works with the room scheme. Mirrored and metallic finishes are always set to impress guests, and they help to bring another dimension to the space. We also specify the size of the furniture, choosing pieces that are sized right for the space so that they make an impact and don’t get lost in the room; don’t be afraid to use oversized furniture, artwork or mirrors in large or open areas.” Natalie advises that the layout of the room can be made flexible by placing individual armchairs so that they can be rotated to face a roaring fire for example. Exquisite accessories can also be placed on coffee tables with a mix of glossy, reflective surfaces and rich, elegant, metallic frames. “Good lighting is vital to any room,” continues Natalie, “and layering is the key. It is important to build flexibility into the lighting system, with the ability to create a sophisticated ambiance for evening entertaining, as well as practical lighting suitable for every day living – you can now even use your smart phone to achieve the perfect light setting. Soft lighting emanating from the cornicing, table lamps and chandeliers should all be utilized to provide a relaxed and gentle atmosphere.” As mentioned before, using mirrored, metallic and gloss finishes on furniture also provides a way to reflect more light around the room, helping to bring it to life through added layers. Using a selection of patterns, colours and textures is a good way to add more depth to a scheme. “We may hang fine, sheer curtains from the windows, allowing natural light to filter through,” concludes Natalie. “Hanging a coloured sheer curtain will cast a hue across the room, and this colour is then echoed by the plush cushions on the sofas. This colour will then be extended to the accessories and artwork to bring the scheme together.” Alexander James Interiors +44 (0)118 932 0828

he words ‘contemporary’ and ‘modern’ are bandied around synonymously by the clients of Boscolo, an established, highend architecture and interior design company based in London. Gurjeet Hunjan, design director, says, “Reserved for an era of design, the ‘modern’ age is, rather ironically, in the past, with ‘contemporary’ the zeitgeist of the day. This is not only a reflection of current trends in design, but also utility and function as determined by developments in technology. “When we approach a lounge design there are a few key features that we feel exemplify the aesthetic we are going for - something that reflects the style of today, and which makes the whole experience fit for purpose.” Though not always viable and difficult to achieve perfectly, one element that Boscolo likes to include in its designs is symmetry. “A lounge space is an area to relax and unwind in,” explains Gurjeet. “Working on a subconscious level, symmetry gives the user a sense of calm and tranquillity, which is an absolute must in this day and age where life moves at such a fast pace.” Gurjeet advises that one of the best ways to achieve symmetry is to create a feature or focal point in the room. “Whether this be a fireplace, a table or even a television, we like to take this feature and expand outwards. That way we can construct a narrative around the main function of the room - whether the client wants a space to watch shows or an area where the family can sit and talk. “As we expand outwards, we like to use clean, clear lines, ensuring that there’s uniformity throughout. This is a simple and uncomplicated way of enhancing symmetry and creates a clearness of purpose as well as mind. To get this effect we like to use contrasting colours - lightly coloured spaces accented by rich, dark woods highlights of pure luxury and decadence in a sea of tranquility.” Once again, what really brings this together to elevate a good design into a truly luxurious example is the use of lighting. “Light transforms how we understand and process every aspect of an interior,” enthuses Gurjeet. “It casts shadows, highlights features of the room, elaborates on the fabrics, draws your attention or focuses it elsewhere. It’s the most powerful tool in our arsenal and a well-considered lighting scheme is an absolute necessity for anyone looking to convert a lounge into a luxury space.”

The most powerful V8 Lexus has ever produced for a road-going car, it benefits from detailed design and engineering to deliver an exhilarating experience.

drive Racing towards the Silverstone Classic Two exciting new races have joined the traditional favourites at this summer’s Silver Jubilee edition of the Silverstone Classic (July 24th – 26th), thus ensuring the special 25th anniversary festival features the fullest possible spectrum of motor sport history. The first sees the welcome return of the charismatic Pre War Sports Cars while the second is a Classic debut for the popular Guards Trophy GT and Sports Racing Championship. Adding to the spectacle both races will run for 40 minutes with a mandatory pit stop and optional driver change. The Pre War Sports Car grid was a regular entertainer in the event’s early years but hasn’t featured on the packed bill at the World’s Biggest Historic Motor Racing Festival since 2009. However, with organisers keen to highlight the long-running event’s glorious past – as well as provide visitors with even more motor sport history to savour – the grid rejoins under the evocative ‘Mad Jack’ banner. Named in honour of Richard ‘Mad Jack’ Shuttleworth, winner of the first Grand Prix staged at a road circuit in the UK back in 1935, the Motor Racing Legends-run Mad Jack Pre War Sports Car race will be one of the major crowd pleasers on Saturday’s action-packed schedule. It will also be the first time that the latest version of the Silverstone Grand Prix Circuit will host many of the most dramatic and entertaining sports cars from the pre-World War 2 era. These will include mighty 8-litre Bentleys, Type 35 Bugattis and Alfa 8C Monzas along with equally esteemed Aston Martins, Altas, Alvises, BMWs, Frazer Nashes, MGs, Talbots and Sunbeams. 

Countdown to Audi Sport TT Cup Opener The inaugural race of the Audi Sport TT Cup from May 1st – 3rd will start the DTM season opener at the Hockenheimring and the selection process for the 18 permanent slots is now well underway. “In making the selections, we were spoiled for choice and, due to the high quality, could even have easily filled two fields,” says project leader, Rolf Michl. “The large number of worldwide applications confirms our expectation that the Audi Sport TT Cup will not only attract huge national but international attention as well.” A total of 165 applications from 30 nations were received by quattro GmbH. Now 18 junior drivers are about to be awarded a permanent slot in the new one-make cup. The physical foundations for the 2015 season were laid in early March during a fitness camp in Bavaria, immediately followed by a trip to Spain. At the Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona the initial track tests were held for the Audi Sport TT Cup, which will be held as part of six DTM events in Germany and Austria in the 2015 season. Concurrently underway is the testing and ultimate fine-tuning 228 kW (310 hp) of the Audi TT cup, as well as the preparation of the race cars that are centrally fielded by quattro GmbH in all races. This guarantees maximum equality of opportunities. Discussions with potential guest drivers have also begun as six cockpits are reserved for motorsport legends, celebrities and members of the media.  50

According to leading Spanish property valuation firm, Tinsa, 2014 showed the smallest nationwide house price devaluation since 2007 and, due to healthier supply-demand, record tourism figures (2014 should close with an all-time-high of 65 million visitors), an improving economy and falling unemployment for the second consecutive year, it expects house price variation to level out at 0% in 2015.

he Balearic Island of Mallorca offers a fabulous mixture of strong local traditions and the flair added to it by the international visitors and residents who spend weeks of quality time there. Mo Henkel of 39º North 3º East, says, “In addition to the Mediterranean climate and the savoir vivre that we are all thoroughly enjoying, Mallorca has proven over the past years to be a brilliant and safe place for investment. This fact is reflected in the increasing activities on the property market, even during the quieter winter months. “Currently there is a big demand for generously sized traditional country houses and properties near the sea, where elegant summer residences are being created to be enjoyed with family and friends. There are many clients from Britain who benefit additionally from the very favourable exchange rate, but we also see many clients from Germany, France, Switzerland, Italy, Scandinavia and the Far East. “Mallorca is the perfect location with its excellent flight connections, ever-improving infrastructure, rich cultural life, wide range of sporting activities and, above all, the relaxed lifestyle.” 72

However, the Canary Islands, lie around 28 degrees Latitude and therefore enjoy a pleasant sub-tropical climate throughout the year, rarely deviating between a minimum of 18 degrees in winter and 27 degrees in summer. This makes it an ideal year-round destination. “Tenerife has two airports making it highly accessible from across Europe; many flights non-stop and direct. It also has incredible beaches and wonderful attractions from the Teide volcano, the third largest in the world and Spain’s highest mountain, to the magnificent Los Gigantes cliffs that rise from the sea to a height of 500-800 metres.

In the mall, large internal terraces act as extensions of the shop fronts. Escalators and walkways connect to the adjacent terraces and weave the development into the 3D urban pedestrian network. The terraces are able to accommodate temporary booths, open bars, dining, or even casual relaxation zones.

Construction has begun on SPARK’s competition-winning design for a 127,000sqm mixed-use development that will serve as a new leisure and business centre in Beijing’s developing Daxing district. The Vanke-Shoukai joint-venture development will incorporate an expansive publicly accessible park environment between office, residential and retail buildings. The design represents a dedicated effort to provide an open realm for community interaction and enjoyment in Daxing.

The design for the north plot incorporates office and retail zones positioned at each end of the new park. The park, embraced by architecture, has been imagined as a “programmed void” – an open space that accommodates a variety of discoverable landmarks including leisure and activity zones, seasonally themed gardens, playgrounds, and a large-scale sunken plaza. The park has been designed to be enjoyed physically at multiple levels, and visually from the architecture that overlooks it.

SPARK’s design for the Vanke-Shoukai Mixed-use Development Daxing aims to blur the boundaries between indoor and outdoor spaces, and between retail and recreational zones. It creates a large open park between high- and low-rise blocks, where the human scale predominates and spatial transitions encourage voluntary discovery.

Pathways intertwine between the activity areas, inciting movement from zone to zone while serving as a loop between the blocks. With multiple protruding balconies, the two-story retail environments on the north plot allow for unhindered views into the park. They are topped by a low-rise office typology.


The development is at the epicentre of a larger master plan for the Daxing district in southern Beijing. This district will act as a major destination between the future airport and Beijing’s central core – a gateway to the capital. Located north of Nian Tan Park on two adjacent plots of land, the Vanke-Shoukai development will also provide an urban datum that facilitates connections between the city’s major focal points. Incorporating an office tower, serviced apartments, a mall, a commercial complex and a park, the development will serve as a new centre for leisure and business. “We aimed to create a variety of atmospheres and scales, and a range of interior and exterior spaces,” says SPARK Director Jan Felix Clostermann. He continues, “We hope this hybrid of urban and ‘natural’ spaces will be a successful model for anchoring a newly developing peripheral area.” The design for the south plot incorporates a 120-metre-high office tower, a Citadines serviced apartment tower, and a shopping mall. The design approach is to break away from the conventional podium/tower typology where the volume is typically introverted. Rather, the podium is pierced and shaped by two main axes that allow for fluid mobility through it. The effect generated is akin to streets running between city blocks. Clear distinctions are made between the multiple programme components by cut-outs that reveal negative space between the building volumes. The serviced apartment volume has been placed strategically to maximise views toward the north and south parks. It will primarily act as a destination for business, given the close proximity to the future airport in the south of Daxing. Attention has been paid to connections with the retail street. The design intention is to encourage guests to meander and capitalise on the available shopping and dining opportunities during their stay.

Spark Architects.indd 1

The northern and southern zones of the development are linked by pedestrian crossings as well as an underground retail passage, allowing for an interwoven ensemble of mixed-use functions that strive to set a new standard in the region. A public car park below the landscape contributes provides a “park and ride” facility, supporting the existing subway infrastructure. Construction of the four-storey sales gallery at the northern end of the site has been completed. This building was conceived as a combination of two elements: a circular structure from which a wedge has been cut, and a pragmatic cantilevered office box. Their combination generates spatial complexity that will be echoed across the development and encourage a sense of discovery. Overall, the design presents a counterpoint to the dense modes of development that characterise central Beijing. It represents a continuation of SPARK’s efforts to focus on the potential of architecture to contribute positively to the experience of the city.

f you take a flight from any European capital, you will reach Portugal in the extreme south-west of Europe in just a few hours. It’s this ease of access that is part of the country’s appeal as well as its wide range of different landscapes, wealth of leisure activities and cultural heritage. So how is its property market shaping up as we head through 2015? Robert Bijker, director of Land & Houses Algarve – Yellow Homes, says, “Twelve months ago we predicted that trading conditions for real estate would improve which proved to be an accurate assumption. The increase in transaction volume which started in 2013 continued in 2014 at even a higher pace. We believe that programs like the Golden Visa and the NHR (Non-Habitual Resident) will continue to be successful in attracting foreign buyers in 2015. Especially the latter as more and more people from Northern Europe will learn about this program and the benefits.” The NHR program is a scheme for individuals who have not been a resident in Portugal during the past five years. Once an individual has been granted the NHR status, he or she will be exempt from income tax (work, royalties, pension, interest and dividend) for a period of 10 years. “This program in combination with an undervalued property market,” explains Mr Bijker, “is an attractive proposition for many foreigners who like to capitalise on a recovery in property prices while having a 10-year tax holiday. The market benefits more from this type of buyer versus ‘flippers’, as they have a strong incentive to hold on to their property during this 10-year period. We also noticed that the NHR program enabled some buyers to fast forward their retirement by a couple of years, as their pension’s income will be tax free for 10 years.” Mr Bijker expects that, despite political and economical challenges, 2015 will be a good year for real estate with both transaction volume and prices increasing during the year - especially if economic growth in the eurozone picks up. “As there is not much new construction coming to the market in 2015,” he continues, “we also expect supply and demand to be more balanced which also will contribute to the recovery in property prices. In addition, we believe banks will 90

continue to strengthen their balance sheets in 2015 – something we always considered to be a process and not an event – which in the future will lead to a more liberal approach towards the issuance of new mortgages and a reduction in the spread.”

Ollie Kirk of Portman Properties reports that, having experienced some quieter years in the general property market up until the end of 2013, due to the Europe wide recession, many in Portugal were relieved to see the property market pick up again at the beginning of last year. He says, “2015 is looking busier than we,ve seen the market since 2008. Though the crash in 2008 did slow the market to some extent, the high end luxury property market was certainly less affected, and this was obvious through sales continuing in the luxury resort of Quinta do Lago, as well as areas such as Vale do Lobo and Vilamoura. “However, now with the property market having settled after the lower-end market turbulence, we are seeing a welcomed shift toward a more exciting range of property in the Algarve, with an increase in large luxury property sales in more ‘hidden’ locations. Where once Quinta was the only place to buy, the wealthy are becoming increasingly aware of what lies just outside these areas. Why buy a 3,000m2 plot in a resort, when for similar money you could have 20,000m2 of land with matured gardens, or helicopter access, or even just real privacy? This is something that has definitely become a more emphasised matter over the past year.” Mr Kirk believes that this shift has come about simultaneously with resort security systems and security personnel reaching all surrounding areas. There is also a realisation that the Portuguese coast offers many similar aspects shared with those of the France and Spain. “However, Portugal retains tighter control on planning so as to preserve its future,” he says. “Therefore, the only difference in the Algarve is a need for expert advice on property before buying into the market, but in the long run this system will protect those buying into the market for future resales, knowing there is a guarantee that over development in your area is not a possibility.” International Property & Travel

Chalet Maria Pia, Estoril In 1893 Queen Maria Pia, widow of King Luis 1, acquired the Chalet and immediately embarked upon a wide ranging remodelling of the property, along with complete interior redecoration. This is particularly evident in the wall and ceiling frescoes of painter António Ramalho which still remain. The Chalet became the property of António de Herédia, the son of the Viscount of Ribeira Brava, in 1913 and has remained in the family since then. The property which was formerly the summer residence of the Portuguese royal family in the late 19th century is set high above the seafront cliffs in Estoril. Totally south facing, it has uninterrupted views over the Bay of Cascais to the mouth of the River Tagus.

The Altis Grand Hotel is a newly renovated, landmark five-star hotel with a prime location in central Lisbon


ithin walking distance of the Avenida Liberdade (Liberty Avenue) and Lisbon’s most picturesque districts. The Altis Grand Hotel was formerly known as simply the Altis Hotel. Its new name is justified by the fact that the hotel has recently completed the last phase of its largest ever renovation. This included the opening of a new spa, renovation of the pool, sauna, hammam, gym and treatment rooms, as well as 100 new rooms and deluxe suites. It began in 2011 with the transformation of 200 new deluxe rooms, renovation of the entrance lobby and


the creation of a new Lobby Bar. That same year the hotel joined the Luxury Collection of Great Hotels of the World. The result is a contemporary atmosphere with 300 rooms including 11 suites fully equipped with all modern facilities and balconies looking over Lisbon's historic quarter. As an example, three beautifully decorated Ambassador Suites on the 11th floor include a 25m2 bedroom, marble bathroom with shower and bathtub, living room and dining area with a 15m2 area and a 10m2 balcony.

lthough 2014 was very much London’s year as overseas investment poured in, 2015 may well belong to New York with all signs showing that this great US city looks set to overtake. A stroll around Manhattan certainly backs this up with real estate hoardings on every corner. Douglas Elliman Fine Homes and Knight Frank Residential agree that volatile emerging markets around the world are driving demand and NY supply is booming. “There is a significant amount of luxury inventory coming to market this year, which should increase the time on the market, as the sense of urgency to purchase will lessen,” says Knight Frank’s Sarah Simpson. “Buyers will take their time as they explore more options and are willing to wait in order to find the best in class development.” Current Manhattan hotspots include; Billionaires Row, West Chelsea and the Financial District with price barriers continually being smashed. The penthouse at One57 recently sold for $100m and 40% of new development sales are now foreign purchasers coming from all parts of the world report agents. Some buyers are betting on the US dollar continuing its run. “Although the recent dollar rally has increased the barrier to entry,” says Ms Simpson, “most believe the dollar is poised for an extended rally, creating additional investment opportunity via currency arbitrage. That paired with the predicted capital appreciation makes the US market very attractive to the foreign investor.”

An asset piggy bank Kirk Henckels, Vice Chairman & Director of Private Brokerage at Stribling & Associates, describes last year’s top end market as ‘a wild ride in certain, highly publicised categories’. “New condo developments have attracted foreign buyers at all price ranges,” he says, “using New York real estate as their asset piggy bank.” Mr Henckels finds that ‘trophy buyers’ of all nationalities are only interested in the highest quality in the condo, cooperative or townhouse category. He says that average prices have gone up significantly as many of the new condo developments are beginning to close at relatively high prices. “Over 6,000 new development condo units will be coming on to the market in 2015 versus less than half of that last year. There is a concern that New York has overbuilt luxury units, especially in the $10m+ range,” Mr Henckels warns. He believes that international buyers in certain developments now make up to 60%. “Buyers are from everywhere with Canada, Europe, the Middle East, Brazil being of note. Asian buyers are also strong participants but the Chinese are entering carefully and buying $1-2m apartments for their college student children.” 104

Silvio Pagliani, President of, has watched a ‘frenzy of new development over the last 18 months’. “This year a record 2,386 newly built Manhattan luxury apartments will be listed for sale leading to concerns that frantic development in some parts of the city including Midtown and the neighbourhood near the High Line could overload the market with luxury apartment projects,” he says. Mr Pagliani finds that increased supply means that buyers are taking longer to seal deals and sounds a note of caution. “Top luxury brokers have expressed concerns that if prices climb too high, buyers will revolt and the market will start to cool.” He thinks that - as the dollar rises and international purchasing power diminishes - foreign interest could wane just as developers are releasing a flux of new opportunities. “In the past 12 months the US dollar has strengthened against all of its 16 major peers, with the exception of the Swiss franc. The falling ruble against the dollar has prevented some Russians from buying, although, for others it has reinforced their original motives for moving their assets out of Russia and into the US.”

Spreading the investment New York remains a top choice for investors, although their buying habits may be changing. Brokers report that investors with $15 million to spend are now choosing to buy two or three smaller units instead of a single larger one, although most feel that the priciest condos are still sound investments long term. “It is also possible that Manhattan’s status as a safe haven for buyers means it will ultimately benefit from overseas turmoil, pushing wealthy foreigners to invest in the US even with limited buying power. Regardless, New York will always be among the world’s top destinations for culture, technology, business, finance, entertainment, and luxury real estate,” says Mr Pagliani. Diane Ramirez, CEO of Halstead Property, says that despite price hikes - NY remains the world’s hottest spot: “In general, we are still the best priced real estate market in the world.” With records constantly being broken, Ms Ramirez points to the Zeckendorf Development which will have the most expensive property to go on the market this year. “They will soon list a triplex penthouse at 520 Park Avenue for $130 million. It’s a very dramatic and exciting property.” She finds that international buyers gravitate to the 57th Street corridor thanks to proximity to shopping, familiarity with the neighbourhood and the sheer choice of luxury amenities. “We can never project return on the money,” concludes Ms Ramirez. “However, New York City proves to be a safe haven again and again.” 106

hile Thailand has always been a much loved tourist destination, last year’s anti-government protests and subsequent coup, although peaceful, may well have made investors nervous. Not any more as things are firmly back to normal says Mark Price, CEO of Savills (Thailand). “The country has now settled into a stable and safe environment, the economy is back on track and just recently Standard Chartered Bank upgraded their GDP forecast for this fiscal year to 6%.” Mr Price notices evidence of the pick up in demand in the luxury sector pointing to Bangkok’s prestigious new developments, 185 Rajdamri by Raimon Land and The MahaNakhon by PACE Development, where prices achieved have been around THB 350k per m2. “A number of luxury projects which had been delayed are now moving forward including the latest spectacular riverside project, Four Seasons Private Residences by Country Group PCL,” he adds. The Russian financial crisis seems to have dented certain resorts but Mr Price finds that Phuket still continues to attract the ‘super rich’ while pointing to up and coming Hua Hin where PACE Development’s The Mahasamutr and The Mali Residence by Orchid Palm Homes are attracting attention. “With an international school expected to be ready by August of this year, and plans for a new airport and high speed rail link, coupled with the charm, history and beauty of the town, we expect prices in Hua Hin to continue rising in the coming years.”

Capital appreciation

The Sukhothai Residences, Bangkok An icon of world-class hospitality and elegant architectural design, The Sukhotai Residences has been masterminded by Kerry Hill and Ed Tuttle, two internationally renowned architects. The most highly anticipated residential development in Bangkok, it offers one, two, three and four-bedroom apartments plus penthouses. It forms a true oasis with over half of the site area dedicated for recreation and landscaping featuring a distinctive 100-metre pool complex comprising two swimming pools and a decorative pond. From £1.05m / €1.404m / $1.606m CBRE Thailand +66 2 262 1111 e:

The capital Bangkok is also a major draw. Described by The Lonely Planet as the city ‘where the familiar and the exotic collide like flavours on a plate of pàt tai’, the description is a fair one. Few other cities compare to what the Thais tag ‘Kung Threp’ (The City of Angels) which throws up sophistication and local charm in equal measures and this applies too to its real estate. CBRE’s head of Research and Consulting, Thailand, James Pitchon says that overseas investors struggle to know where exactly they should put their money. “It’s impossible to stick a pin in a map and say that’s where you should buy.It doesn’t work like that here in Bangkok.” Mr Pitchon has seen many changes over the years and says the city ‘moves and changes’ according to demand. Transport improvements have stabilized the city’s parameters but - with the Thai taste for brand new homes - older style buildings can quickly lose their appeal with prices dropping as a result. Foreign investment currently accounts for around 20% of purchases according to Mr Pitchon but he feels that strong demand from a domestic market is an enduring positive. “Foreign money can disappear when political problems are in the news but the local market stays strong,” he adds pointing to 120

the city’s best-known spots of Lumpini, Sathorn and Sukhumvit as strong areas for investment. Developers PACE believe that property prices will continue to rise in line with the city’s rapid growth and infrastructure development. “The luxury end of the sector will still be healthy as demand outdoes supply,” they say. International business growth is driving the market. “It is expected that many corporations will choose Bangkok as their hubs as Thailand offers competitive advantage in the region including excellent infrastructure, competitive costs and excellent service standards in tourism and business with transportation linking Singapore and Malaysia to Laos, Vietnam to Myanmar.” PACE is ‘redefining urban living standards’ by creating design-oriented residential properties located in the most prime addresses. Current developments include MahaNakhon in Bangkok. As well as Bangkok’s CBD being a hotspot, the company also find that Phuket, Pattaya and Krabi are popular with investors. Silvio Pagliani, President of, believes Thailand has shown remarkable resilience as it continues to attract tourists and investors. “Luxury developers such as Sarapoj Techakraisri and Maha Nakhona Bangkok report that, despite the recent coup in 2014, the sale of luxury apartments continues to rise amongst both Thai and foreign buyers,” he says pointing to a major new Bangkok project, Icon Siam. This is spread over 20 hectares and billed as ‘the largest private sector real estate development project in Thailand’ which will hit the market in 2017.

Gaining momentum Phuket has long been a favourite with its beaches and infrastructure a major draw. Mr Pagliani noticed momentum growing on the island throughout 2014 with several largescale projects in the pipeline. “Last year, property acquired by foreigners in Thailand reached 67 billion baht (€1.7 billion),” he adds. He also tips ‘beautiful Hua Hin’, where you can still buy high-end villas for €700,000. “Thailand’s resilience and ability to maintain quality of life, while promoting growth, offers interesting development prospects. The infrastructure projects approved just after the recent coup will be another step forward for the country’s entire economy.” Robert Green, General Manager, Abercrombie & Kent International Estates, agrees that Thailand is very firmly on the up. “The recent coup and political instability knocked further confidence out of international buyer’s appetite to buy but - as the effects have largely been positive - we are seeing confidence return.” He says that the islands were less affected than Bangkok and northern Thailand and sees strong interest from Chinese buyers. “The British have had a long term affinity with Thailand and we have seen an increase in demand by around 20% from this time last year.” 122

MahaNakhon, Bangkok Due to become Bangkok’s tallest development on completion, MahaNakhon will be the city’s iconic landmark. It will feature the distinctive design of a three-dimensional ribbon of architectural ‘pixels’ which will circle the 314 metre high tower. This high end, mixed-used development comprises 200 Ritz-Carlton branded residences, a 159-room Edition boutique hotel operated by The Ritz-Carlton, and approximately 9,800m2 of retail space.

Private Villa Emirates Hills

Announcing the World’s Best Property Professionals… Yet another exciting year of judging has passed and we can now reveal the ultimate winners of the International Property Awards 2014-2015. Our judging panel, chaired by three members of the House of Lords in British Parliament, has spent many long hours scrutinizing a multitude of extremely high calibre entries. Out of these, only companies which have excelled in every aspect from quality of build and eco-awareness to new technology and services have gone on to achieve a coveted ‘World’s Best’ award. Taking the title of World’s Best Apartment, ‘1919 – The Black and White Residences’ by Aurum Land is a collection of 75 striking properties. Inspiration stemmed from Singapore’s elegant colonial era with each apartment forming a contemporary version of the traditional black and white house. Bishop Design won World’s Best Interior Design Award for a single property with its ‘Private Villa’ in Emirates Hills, Dubai. Sumptuous and sophisticated, every living area shows the greatest attention to detail and a remarkable talent for optimising colour and light. The World’s Best Residential Renovation/Redevelopment was awarded to HBS Towers in India by HBS Realtors. Its impressive Art Deco architectural style provides residents with an oasis of luxury amid the bustling city of Mumbai. Many congratulations to these winning companies and all those listed in this publication.
