These include furniture and furnishings, super yachts and, of course, high performance cars. Therefore, I’m delighted to welcome Kevin Haggarthy on to our team as motoring editor. Kevin brings with him a wealth of knowledge from the super-car circuit having been a motoring journalist and television broadcaster for many years.

nternational investment in Spanish property appears to be steadily increasing, there is increased confidence in the market and new developments are coming up for sale. The weak euro is also making it a great time to buy for some groups of foreign clients. Perhaps more importantly, according to Lucas Fox co-founders Alex Vaughan and Stijn Teeuwen, there are clear signs that in major cities like Barcelona, Madrid and Valencia, national buyers are starting to buy again, this has been helped by the increasing willingness of Spanish banks to give mortgages to qualified buyers. “I think the market has been slowly recovering since the beginning of 2013,” says Alex Vaughan, “and that in many areas prices bottomed out in the last two quarters of 2014. So far 2015 looks set to be the year that the market really turns the corner and that transaction levels start to increase significantly. As we have been saying for the last couple of years the key for investors in Spanish property is to focus on location. The prices of properties in prime areas will recover first and now is a great time to take advantage of low prices and buy in the best prime micro location you can.” Stijn Teeuwen isn’t sure that the love affair with Spain ever really stopped. “In the period 2007 to 2014 there was a lot of uncertainty about the market and this made a lot of people put their plans on hold,” he El Madroñal, Benahavís says. “The big appeal of Spain is lifestyle On an enormous elevated plot and almost all of our clients at Lucas of just under 10,000m2, this Fox are what we call ‘lifestyle investors’. south facing property has been They want to make a wise property fully renovated to the highest of investment but choose Spain because standards and features spectacular of the quality of life it offers.” views over the coast, to the sea and to Gibraltar.

lthough Portugal was one of several countries that had to seek help during the financial crisis that swept across much of the world from 2007/08 onwards, things are now looking rather different for the Iberian country. Chris White, founding director of boutique estate agency Ideal Homes Portugal, says, “Obviously Portugal has gone through some tough times, but the country has worked hard to put the bailout money to good use and has turned its fortunes around over the past four to five years. It has been a struggle at times, with austerity measures impacting deeply on the people's psyche as well as their pockets, but the results of that effort are now beginning to become clear.

“Certainly in terms of the housing market we can feel the quiet new confidence that the country is emanating. Property transactions are on the up and though buyers are more cautious than they used to be the market is definitely reviving nicely. Demand from overseas buyers is supporting the newly flourishing market, with British and Irish buyers keen to pick up their piece of Portugal before prices go up much further. “Already, many of the bargains that have typified the market over the past couple of years have been snapped up, though there are still some excellent deals to be made if you know where to look. You can tell that the toughest economic times are beginning to fade out of sight in Portugal's rear view mirror and the overseas input into the property market is helping to generate a new confidence here.” Indeed, Knight Frank has seen a 51% increase in interest in the Algarve in the past year to April 2015 than the previous period. Christian de Meillac, head of Knight Frank’s Portugal Desk, says, “Buyers are still predominantly British but we have seen a surge in interest from France, Switzerland and Scandinavia. Prices are down 20-30% since 2008 but appear to be stabilising as sales are on the rise.”

he number of overseas investors interested in buying a home in Italy is on the rise. As an example, in the first four months of 2015 Gate-Away.com, a leading Italian property portal solely devoted to overseas buyers looking for a home in Italy, registered an increase of 31% in the number of inquiries received from international home hunters compared to the same period of 2014. Walter Di Martino, head of communications at Gate-Away.com, says, “Also due to the favourable currency exchange rates, the number of Brits looking for a home in Italy is growing steadily. For them a property in the Bel Paese is now less expensive and more accessible. “Tuscany has always been the most sought-after region of Italy for a second home in Italy. But in the first months of 2015 it has been overthrown by Puglia as the most coveted destination by Brits registering a 13,9% on the total requests they sent us. Following are Tuscany (11,8%), Piedmont (9,6%), Abruzzo (9,4%) and Liguria (9,3%). This also demonstrates that other Italian regions are starting to promote their territory and beauties abroad through effective and successful strategies as Tuscany has been doing for many years.” 18

Bearing this in mind, it’s not so surprising that what initially starts as a short holiday often evolves into more frequent, longer stays and ultimately buying a home. Joachim Wrang-Widen, senior vice president at Christie’s International Real Estate comments, “In general, the American-based buyer is now back in buying mode helped by the favourable exchange rate dollar/euro as well as positive macroeconomic situation which encourages more consumer spending. Favoured locations include Cote d’Azur and Paris which see much of the buying activity. This is complemented by the odd forays into Dordogne and other select locations. “The strengthening of the sterling vis-àvis the euro has also resulted in UK buyers again flocking to France assisted by a better 20

Property PORTFOLIO general understanding of how the revised taxation structure operates for foreign owners. In our opinion, the changes have over time been accommodated/taken into account as part of the structural framework for owning real state in France. “Russians, having been a dominant force in the past in particular in the very top-segment with ‘statement acquisitions’, have in the past 12 months changed their behaviour in Cote d’Azur from buying to increasingly instead renting. Another group of buyers at the very top-end emanate from the African continent and in particular from the francophone countries. “French luxury properties can be good value and especially if one compares the prices to urban residences in say London or New York. The prices at the very topend (say above €100-150 million) have experienced a slow-down in demand which is now starting to be reflected in the vendor pricing. The liquid segment of €2-5 million sees growing transaction volumes but as many luxury properties are non-essential acquisitions, potential buyers have been cautious since the Lehman crisis. Given the historically low interest rates that prevail across the world, real estate is now inexpensive to finance and also provides longer-term capital growth opportunities. Ergo, luxury properties are not only seen as a property per se to use but also as an alternative investment medium.” Summing up, Trevor Leggett, chairman of Leggett Immobilier, adds, “It's crystal clear that international buyers are, once again, back at the top end of the market. They have access to an increasing amount of market research that shows that prices have dropped and the domestic market remains becalmed. Add in a weak euro and access to cheap money and you have a trio of reasons to think that timing is right. Our sales support team reports that the UK and USA are leading the way in the pursuit of prestige property - the trick is to ensure that vendors price their property sensibly. If they do this then they have the highest chance of finding a buyer since well before the crash of 2008. “The recent election in the UK also seems to have cleared up any uncertainty in the minds of UK buyers - the share price of UK agents like Foxtons and Savills jumped immediately following the result and this confidence has also had a big impact on offers received on this side of the channel.”

Cyprus

T

he state of the economy in Cyprus has improved, bank restrictions have been lifted and economic growth is continuing. Louise Reynolds, director of Cyprus property agency Property Venture, says, “The prospects for Cyprus are more positive, falls in the economy and property market are halting and seem to be on the turn, although in essence it is still a buyer’s market. The economic and financial fiasco of 2013 with the controversial ‘haircut’ on deposits exceeding €100,000 in the two largest Cypriot banks and stricter lending criteria, left the market shaken. “But now there are glimmers of good news, such as Limassol, where the property market is a bit more buoyant, perhaps by virtue of its international business base and cosmopolitan population. With its new marina, it continues to attract affluent investors, like the Russians. What’s more, there is more of a recognition the property purchasing process needs to be more transparent and speedier for buyers to get hold of title deeds.” Staying on the subject of Limassol Marina, Graff has announced it is launching a franchise there, along with a number of other luxury retailers. Prices at the marina are increasing and reports say that sales are progressing well with 40% of the first phase of villas sold off-plan. Interestingly, 60% of the buyers are Russian and 20% Cypriot - the remainder are from Arab countries and Europe. Delivered in 2013 and 2014, the apartments sold to a total of 13 different nationalities. 24

Switzerland R

enowned as an excellent all-season destination, Switzerland offers a host of different style properties from lakeside villas to mountain chalets. But what of current pricing structures? Alex Koch de Gooreynd, head of Knight Frank Swiss sales, reports, “After a difficult 18 months the Swiss market does seem to be experiencing a slight recovery with activity especially noticeable in the CHF5m - CHF10m and the CHF25m + price ranges. The de-pegging against the euro at the start of the year has interestingly given buyers a greater sense of security. Couple this with the secure environment and ever increasing number of international schools and the reasons for a family relocation to Switzerland from the wider international communities are clear. “The banks and newspapers are continuing their rhetoric of caution which in turn is making buyers very wary of overpaying but with a large number of transactions currently being finalised the message is bound to soften in the months ahead. The interesting things to watch will be the annual arrival of the Middle Eastern based buyers in the summer. If the activity continues at a similar pace in the holiday home markets then we will know that the recovery is almost complete and the ski resorts can look forward to improved conditions in the following season.” 26

Montreux Originally built in 1895 as a private home, this stunning residence has been totally restored to its former glory. Ideally positioned on the waterfront, it combines both residential and commercial spaces providing for a variety of future uses. The property retains a great deal of original characteristics yet also embraces modern conveniences such as a lift servicing all floors. Its stately reception rooms offer high ceilings and panoramic views while the bedrooms are all en suite. The original servants’ quarters have now been converted into a Pompeiian pool area which opens directly on to the garden’s sun terrace. Another unusual feature of the villa is the ground floor shop unit as well as a modern office on the newly built fourth floor. This state-of-the-art complex comprises a reception, four offices, a conference room and kitchen. £18.1m / €25.5m / $28.1m Knight Frank +44 20 7629 8171

Pouring with light This raindrop chandelier is aptly named ‘The Pour’ and is a light sculpture DH Liberty was commissioned to design in Tribeca, New York City. The company began the design process by exploring the concept of rain and how each water droplet magnifies light in unique ways. Similar to the character of rain falling and creating varying ripple sizes on the surface of puddles. Each crystal droplet is hand blown by artisans and intricately engineered to house the lighting strategy for the chandelier. The drop itself is constructed of two parts: the brass screw cap, which houses the light, and the hand-blown crystal reflecting the light to create puddles on the floor below. To replicate the nature of raindrops, no two drops are identical, enabling the chandelier to echo rain frozen in time. Approx £5,000 depending on bespoke specifications  www.dhliberty.com

Gem for the gym

Ciclotte, the world’s first design exercise bike, has launched a limited edition featuring over 500 Swarovski Zirconia or gemstones. An international award winning product, Ciclotte is the first exercise bike to use an electro-magnetic resistance system with epicycloids transmission, providing the most advanced workout. The state-of-the-art design, reminiscent of a 19th century monocycle wheel, works exclusively through its distinctive central powerhouse. A concentrated magnetic field is generated using a copper ring which is rotated at a high speed in front of six strength magnets. These can be adjusted, tailoring the bike’s resistance level to its user’s bespoke needs. Ciclotte has been designed to faithfully reproduce the dynamics and performance of on-road cycling, making it the ideal tool for high intensity aerobic training. Designed by Milan’s leading designer Luca Schieppati, Ciclotte is available in white, red and black carbon and can be complemented with a kit of accessories suitable for an iPad or iPhone. €10,490 excl VAT  www.ciclotte.com

Turning the tables As part of his latest collection, Alexander Lamont has elevated the ‘Mighty Table’, one of his most popular designs, with an innovative tie-dye finish to the parchment that covers its top. Suji is the Japanese folding technique for tie-dye. Instead of knotting fabric, folds are created in the parchment which is then submerged for equal amounts of time into indigo dye to create a subtle pattern of diverging and converging lines. The Suji-dyed parchment is wrapped around nine separate blocks that are then joined together to make up the Mighty Table’s top. The Mighty Table finished in Suji parchment is a feat of modern design using natural materials and traditional handcrafted techniques. The linearity of the two-toned pattern, the vibrancy and movement of the table’s surface and the boldness of its form create a strikingly modern art piece for contemporary living spaces. £11,487  www.alexanderlamont.com 56

The eldest brother of Jackson Pollock, Charles Pollock (1902-1988), was an artist whose life and career exemplify what has been called ‘the American Century’. This major exhibition is the first full retrospective of his work and includes over 120 paintings, sketches, drawings, photographs, and documents, many on loan from the Charles Pollock Archives in Paris. Some have never before been exhibited. Among these, early letters, photos and sketches will document the relations between Charles and Jackson Pollock. Works by Jackson Pollock and Thomas Hart Benton complement those from Charles’ early years in New York and Washington, shedding light on what amounted to a Pollock family enterprise - studying to be artists - in the years before World War II.

Barbara Hepworth

Sculpture for a Modern World

With over 70 works ranging from major carvings and bronzes to less-familiar pieces, this major retrospective will highlight the different contexts in which Barbara Hepworth (1903-1975) created and presented her work, from the studio to the landscape. The exhibition will recall the often overlooked international prominence of one of Britain’s greatest modern artists, presenting works by Hepworth’s predecessors and peers, including Jacob Epstein (1880-1959) and Henry Moore (1898-1986), revealing how her sculpture related to a wider culture of wood and stone carving. A selection of photographs and film will consider the different ways in which Hepworth’s sculpture was presented or imagined - in landscape, in a gallery, in the garden and on stage and the impact such variant stagings have on an interpretation of her works.

ith huge amounts of natural light, an orangery is the ideal room for easy relaxation and reflection. The vast space and airiness instantly connects you to nature, as if you’re bringing a taste of the outdoors into your home. It’s therefore important to capture the interior of an orangery to reflect this. Orangeries are becoming a popular alternative to a home extension as the combination of a substantial structure together with the luxury of outdoor living is often the ideal blend. Moreover orangeries are a great way of maximising natural light through a roof lantern and look equally well in both

traditional and contemporary residences. They are fitting for use in listed buildings as well as conservation or heritage areas as they can be sympathetically designed to comply with planning and building regulations. George Bond, founder of George Bond Interior Design, says, “In this particular orangery, we decided we could maximise the potential of the space by splitting it into two; a window seat for viewing out on to the garden, alongside a spacious dining area for everyday use. Our aim was to create a light and airy interior to match the feel of an orangery, achieving this by using whites and creams to create a perfect base for the deep navy blue, giving the room a striking contrast. We used a mix of plaid and check patterns to create texture, cleverly upholstering the dining table chairs in cream and blue fabric, which alternate as they sit around the table. “The wall behind the sofa has been mirrored from floor to ceiling, expanding the bright and airy flow of the orangery by capturing the beautiful and ever-changing garden reflections within it. A mirrored wall instantly gives the feel of an even larger room, which is a perfect solution when designing a room that has the feel of the outdoors. “This interior is a great example of how to perfectly design an orangery. It manages to boast colour, patterns, and life, whilst also acquiring the perfect amount of subtlety to allow the gorgeous garden views to do most of the talking. We feel we’ve cleverly used interior design to highlight and work hand in hand with the natural qualities of the outdoors, creating a perfect outcome for the orangery.”

S

usan White, founder of Iggi Interior Design, also has some great ideas on how to create the ultimate indoor oasis. “An orangery, conservatory or garden room brings your garden into your home,” she says. “These indulgent spaces protect us from the elements whilst enveloping us in the inherently serene qualities of the great outdoors. “Planning is everything. Really think about how you wish to use the space, this will help when selecting appropriate furniture and plants. For example, different styles and heights of seating produce an informal atmosphere. Choose a colour palette and style which complement the rest of your home. Equally, the current trend of solid colours in taupe, grey and stone work well in all climates and look exceptional yearround. We recommend frames of dark timber or aluminium. Timber weathers to a sophisticated shade of grey that we personally love. “If you want dual purpose, there is a vast choice of outdoor furniture which would also sit quite happily in the most stylish of interiors. We carefully select fabrics that are long lasting and can be easily cleaned. Today’s weatherproof fabrics feel luxurious and come in a great range of classic colours.” Susan advises that by using sliding or folding doors and the same style flooring you can create a seamless journey between the garden room and the outside. And, ‘If music be the food of love…’, she also suggests having outdoor speakers and a Sonas system to infuse your private indoor garden with the music you love.

“Lighting is also vital in transitioning a daytime lunch into evening drinks and helps to generate the perfect mood,” Susan continues. “Select from standard lamps, elegant chandeliers, fairy lights, LED candles and lanterns.” Finally, for those who do not possess a dedicated garden room, Susan says, “Why not think of your garden as having four walls and a ceiling? Create the illusion of walls with rows of pleached trees, simple horizontal trellises or evergreen planting. The ceiling could be a garden shade, sail or wooden pergola from which lighting can be hung. Raising or lowering the seating area can have the same effect.”

Big Wall Ranch La Veta, Colorado, USA One of the most coveted areas in America is Colorado’s spectacular Wahatoya Valley, in the shadow of the Wahatoyas… a name given to the twin peaks by the early Native Americans, the Jicarilla Apache, the Mountain Ute, the Cheyenne and the Arapaho… who traveled and lived in the area and referred to the peaks as the “Breasts of the Earth”. Later, as the cowboys and trappers began to settle the wild west, trade routes were created and yet much of this land remained undiscovered by those traveling westward. It is easy to shut out the rest of the world, time literally stands still here, and the peace and beauty of this extraordinary property is stunning. Elk, bear, deer, mountain lion, coyote and wild turkey are at home and pass through as they have for centuries. Big Wall Ranch is the cornerstone ranch of the valley and sits at the base of the Spanish Peaks, nestled in groves of pines and cottonwoods with the Wahatoya Creek meandering through. The 390± acre property is just a stone’s throw from the 19,226 acre Spanish Peaks Wilderness area where you can hike or saddle up your horse for a day of exploring. Nearby is the San Isabel National Forest, with over 1,120,000 acres of forest. Along the western edge of the property, the Big Wall, part of North America’s only Dike Wall geological formation rises spectacularly above the ranch. Big Wall Ranch represents a secure and sound financial opportunity. Call or email today to find out more about this incredible ranch in the Rocky Mountain West.

Sotheby’s sets car sale auction record RM Sotheby’s set a new record for a private automobile collection auction in May this year, generating $53,887,585 with 100 per cent of all lots sold at its sale of the Paul and Chris Andrews’ Collection in Fort Worth, Texas. The result of more than 15 years of dedicated and meticulous acquisition by the father and son team, the Andrews’ Collection is widely known and respected by the global collector community for its exceptional quality, diversity, presentation and historical significance. The weekend sale, staged as part of an effort to pare down the collection to a more manageable size, lifted the gavel on a total 78 vehicles and select memorabilia before a packed house. Top honours at the auction went to the sale’s cover car – a 1962 Ferrari 400 Superamerica SWB Cabriolet, (pictured here), selling for an impressive $7,645 million. The seven-hour sale also established a new auction benchmark for American Classics; the striking 1934 Packard Twelve Individual Custom Stationary Coupe by Dietrich, achieved a record breaking $4,180,000.

LAMBORGHINI SET FOR NEW ERA

Italian supercar maker Automobili Lamborghini has announced the launch of a luxury SUV as a third model to join its existing product range. The new vehicle will be produced in Sant ‘Agata Bolognese and result in a substantial increase in the production capacity of the factory. The project reflects a joint commitment of several parties, including Volkswagen Group with Audi AG as a Lamborghini shareholder, the Italian Ministry of Economic Development, Invitalia (Italian national agency for investments), Emilia Romagna Region, the union representatives, and the entire Automobili Lamborghini team. Lamborghini President and CEO Stephan Winkelmann (seated far left) declared, “The introduction of a third model line endorses the stable and sustainable growth of the company and signifies for us the beginning of a new era.” The concept currently goes by the name of the Lamborghini Urus, and is set to compete with new forthcoming SUV challenges from Bentley (the Bentayga) and Rolls-Royce.

BMW launches new 6 Series More of a winning formula? BMW has opted for only mild styling revisions to its latest BMW 6 Series models. The interiors take on a more sportingly luxurious ambience thanks to new trim materials, centre console surfaces and lighting, and there is a more extensive range of standard and personalisation features. The BMW ConnectedDrive navigation and infotainment package is fitted to every model, while concierge services accessed through an embedded SIM card allow drivers to set up a bespoke supply of information and connected-car services.

A

t one time London’s docks were centres of industry, alive with the sounds and smells of shipbuilding, receiving cargoes of timber, food and textiles from vessels of all sizes. To anybody visiting today they present a very different picture – prestigious office towers, fine dining restaurants, chic shopping malls and luxurious apartments punctuate the landscape. This change, instigated by the London Docklands Development Corporation in the early 1980s, coupled with a series of business investment incentives from central government, has resulted in a world-class financial and business zone of which one of the country’s tallest buildings – One Canada Square (also known as Canary Wharf Tower) – is the celebrated symbol. Yet the area is so much more than Canary Wharf. Extending along the river through the London boroughs of Tower Hamlets, Newham, Southwark, Lewisham and Greenwich, Docklands stretches for almost nine square miles and is home to thousands of people, not just a business and financial hub.

Lifestyle appeal

According to Lauren Ireland, head of Canary Wharf and Wapping at global real estate provider Savills, “It is difficult to talk about London’s Docklands as a whole, encompassing both Canary Wharf and Wapping with their very distinct and different personalities. Canary Wharf has more of a draw with international buyers,” she explains. “Wapping, on the other hand, appeals to far more domestic buyers for its village feel.” Located between the City and Canary Wharf, Wapping includes warehouse conversions such as Execution Dock and the luxury apartments and marina of St Katherine Docks. “A wonderful place for al fresco dining and drinks in the summer,” says Ms Ireland. The entire area has undergone a massive leisure transformation, with restaurants, designer boutiques, health clubs, high-street shops and bars designed to cater to all tastes. And it’s not all about the buildings – green space providing a breath of fresh air includes the roof gardens of Crossrail Place – Canary Wharf ’s newest shopping mall, which opened in May 2015 – Canada Square Park, Jubilee 80

Baltimore Tower, Baltimore Wharf E14 Extending over three floors and due for completion in 2016, this five-bedroom penthouse will feature bespoke fittings, oak veneered floors, a designer kitchen fitted with integrated Smeg appliances and floorto-ceiling fitted wardrobes. Its four hotelstyle bathrooms will be fully tiled in marble with contemporary suites and underfloor heating, while the private terrace will provide spectacular views of the Canary Wharf skyline. The property also includes parking with valet service, while the development encompasses a private residents’ lounge with large screen cinema room, a residents’ gym, restaurant and split-level brasserie. £4.25m / €5.79m / $6.52m Galliard Homes +44 (0) 20 3740 4991

Gardens, and Mudchute Park and City Farm. Greenwich Park – London’s oldest royal park and one of the venues for the 2012 Olympic Games – is less than 20 minutes from Canary Wharf via Docklands Light Railway (DLR). Old Father Thames himself – the raison d’être for the docks – has also become a leisure focus, with sailing and watersports now popular pursuits with residents and visitors. “The river also offers a great alternative to explore neighbouring areas,” says Natalie Hall, sales and marketing manager with luxury residential developer Londonewcastle. “The river bus takes just 10 minutes to travel to the Royal Borough of Greenwich and a little over 30 minutes to get to the London Eye.”

Investment appeal

When it comes to return on investment, Canary Wharf offers some of the highest yields in East London, making it attractive to investors according to Ms Ireland. John Morley, managing director of Canary-Wharf based real estate agent Johns & Co, agrees. “East London has seen some fantastic growth stories and rental yields can grow as much as 6% in some parts. If you compare this to areas of central London where you won’t achieve more than 3%, Poplar and Docklands are attractive propositions.” Driving factors for Docklands’ growth include existing transport links, such as the DLR and London Underground’s Jubilee Line, as well as the presence of London City Airport, he says. The addition of Crossrail terminals at Custom House and Canary Wharf (due to open in 2018) will only add to the area’s appeal, as will the redevelopment of the Royal Albert Docks as the site of a new business centre. Aimed primarily at Chinese and Asian companies, it is due to welcome its first occupants in 2017. Where once Canary Wharf was often referred to as ‘soulless’, it is now “an incredibly desirable area to live”, says Ms Hall. “For lovers of luxury modern urban homes, many of which have fabulous views, the choice is endless. It is apparent that the area is focusing on servicing its residential community, not just the many workers in the financial markets. It is an area of continuous growth and exciting development.” International Property & Travel

here’s no definitive list as to which areas make up the Home Counties. However, it’s generally accepted that they are the counties surrounding London such as Berkshire, Surrey, Buckinghamshire, Essex, Hertfordshire and Kent. Sussex is also often rightly included as it forms part of the London commuter belt. So who is currently buying where and why? Nick Mead, partner at The Buying Solution (Home Counties), says, “For many years the favourite home of the international buyer looking Above: Coolham Manor, Coolham, West Sussex in the Home Counties has been the private estates of North Surrey.

resurgence and there is certainly value to be had for the well-advised buyer. “An increasing trend seems to be the appetite for homes further out into the countryside where buyers will find a truer sense of England, greater character and the impression of greater sophistication. Prime areas of the Surrey Hills and the Chiltern Hills are particularly in demand.” Andrea Hewitt of buying agents Garrington Property Finders has found that, after several years of steadily rising prices, the prime property market is pausing for breath in some of the most desirable parts of Surrey. “An influx of footballers and wealthy Russian buyers has pushed prices to dizzying heights,” she explains, “and sparked a rash of building top-end properties in the most well-heeled enclaves of Weybridge and Oxshott. But this year a combination of uncertainty over the prospect of a mansion tax, the collapse of the Rouble, a stronger Pound and a sudden surge in the supply of top-end properties has taken some of the froth off the market. “For example, one of the most high profile development firms - which has historically been very successful in this area - is seeing much more competition. As a result it has been forced to cut prices and add ever more luxurious features to attract buyers who are looking for something truly unique. “As a result it's a buyer's market - and there are some exceptional deals to be had, especially in the super prime £5 million to £10 million bracket. Deals can even be had in ultra exclusive areas like Weybridge's St George's Hill and the Crown Estate in Oxshott - which are prized by the rich and famous for their seclusion and privacy. Over the longer term, property in these areas remains a sound investment as the exclusivity and quality of the homes - not to mention the celebrity neighbours - will always be in demand.” 90

Saddle Stones, St George’s Hill Estate, Weybridge, Surrey Deservedly in the nation’s Top 10 of most desirable residential locations, St George’s Hill is a private estate created in 1912 by WG Tarrant. This pioneer developer spotted the desire by captains of industry and high profile entertainers to own a country house close to London, particularly if it had some first class facilities close by like a golf course and tennis club, which Tarrant supplied in the centre of the 600-acre estate. Past legendary residents include Beatles John Lennon and George Harrison and singer Tom Jones. Today more famous owners have taken their place; their privacy assured under the estate’s stringent rules and regulations and with the help of the concierge controlled gated entries. This lavish property includes an impressive bespoke kitchen/breakfast room, six bedroom suites, a cinema room, staff accommodation, a lift accessing all three floors, and an integral triple garage with car turntable. Its landscaped grounds of approximately one acre include an outdoor heated swimming pool with feature fountains. £9.5m / €13.3m / $14.4m

onsisting of 700 islands, there are tons of sumptuous spots in this former British colony which still retains Queen Elizabeth II as its monarch, where silken sands and sparkling seas come as standard. It may be stunningly beautiful, but it’s not just the scenery which is alluring, the country’s competitive tax regime is one of the real draws, attracting the superrich from all over the world. Alongside championship golf courses, marinas and private estates, the wealthy appreciate the fact that The Bahamas is ‘tax neutral’ and has been named by the International Monetary Fund as the ‘fourth largest offshore financial centre’ in the world. Edward de Mallet Morgan of Knight Frank says the enduring appeal of The Bahamas is partially down to the multiple tax advantages on offer. “It’s extremely attractively set up as anyone buying here doesn’t even have to spend a single day here to qualify for relief if they don’t wish to. This can be of real benefit if they aren’t really seeking a new home but are simply looking for somewhere to park their cash,” he explains. Most international buyers stick to the islands’ key areas. Nassau has something for all tastes including both new developments and historic estates but The Bahamas tends to attract an older clientele and many homes veer towards the traditional rather than contemporary. Albany, where parts of the James Bond movie Casino Royale were filmed, is increasingly popular with today’s buyers. “There is now a lot of interest in Albany where there’s a golf course and a super-yacht marina. Buyers like the security and services that come with being on a development with all amenities on hand,” says Mr de Mallett Morgan. Most agents and developers across the islands report a recent surge of French buyers. “At the moment the wealthy in France do not feel comfortable with the government so they are seeking alternative residences,” he continues. “Pre-election, the UK potentially faced a similar scenario but that has now resolved. Many wealthy owners would have left, had the Conservatives not got back into power.”

Cascarilla House This 11,000 square foot residence is a superb example of individuality in architectural design.

Cosmopolitan clientele

But The Bahamas isn’t exclusively French and British, the cosmopolitan mix of clientele includes Russians, Americans, Canadians and Australians as well as South American investors. Another attraction is the ease of the buying process as there are currently no restrictions on foreigners buying freehold property. Legal fees range from 1.0% – 2.5% of the property purchase price and there is no inheritance tax, Capital Gains Tax (CGT) 102

Deep Water Cay This is not only The Bahamas’ oldest and most legendary fishing lodge but also a familyfriendly resort with abundant water sports, ultra privacy, and renowned service. The island has undergone a multi-million dollar renovation and is soon to announce that a worldrenowned hotelier will be managing it. There is an on-island 4,000 feet runway as well as on-island customs clearance and every home is waterfront. These range from turnkey, fully-furnished houses, and pre-designed cottage packages to private custom home sites. Deep Water Cay has activities for every interest but what it’s best known for is superlative flats fishing. The island boasts access to 250 square miles of bonefish and permit flats, with ecosystems ranging from saltwater lakes and mangrove shorelines to hard-packed sand and turtle grass.

or wealth tax to pay. Foreign owners can apply for residency status - preference for permanent residence is given to investors and qualified owners of residential property with a value of over $500,000. President of Graham Real Estate and Savills associate Greg Graham says that the mid to high-end property market is booming. “Second home buyers from Europe, Canada and the United States are snapping up everything right now. The main island of New Providence where the capital Nassau is located is the main market. It offers superb infrastructure, 400 offshore banks, lifestyle, restaurants, a huge social life and top schools surrounded by warm climates and stunning waters and beaches.” Apartments with water or waterway views start from $700,000, waterfront houses range from $2.5m to $10m but currency fluctuations can make a big difference to your budget whatever level you are at. Marianne Gilmore, commercial director at foreign exchange specialists, Moneycorp, advises, “For those thinking about investing in an idyllic Caribbean property in The Bahamas, it is important to keep an eye on the exchange rate you will secure when purchasing your property. The current exchange rate of the pound against the US dollar is close to a 2015 high of 1.57, meaning a property purchase worth $300,000 will cost you £191,082.” Ms Gilmore finds that few buyers are aware that the Bahamian dollar is pegged to the US dollar; the two currencies have a fixed exchange rate, with 1 Bahamian dollar worth 1 US dollar. The amount of Bahamian dollars you get for your sterling is influenced by the strength - or weakness - of the US dollar. “Last July, we saw the US dollar depreciate significantly against the pound to just above 1.71. However, in recent months the greenback strengthened to a rate of $1.46 against the pound, notched up in April of this year,” she says. That level was seen only briefly as sterling rebounded sharply following the UK’s general election. “The current rate available certainly looks attractive as the buying power of those spending pounds has increased since the start of the year,” Ms Gilmore adds. Buying an overseas home is exciting but she warns buyers to always consider their financial future. “Currency exchange rates fluctuate and even the smallest movement can have a knock-on effect to your property budget. It’s a good idea to speak to a currency specialist to make sure you get the best rates when transferring the significant sums, such as for your property purchase.” International Property & Travel

A

lthough The Abaco Club is a private international sporting club, guests are welcome to stay and enjoy its luxurious amenities while they are staying with or renting homes from club members. Each stunning property is within steps of the beach, enabling guests to wake to the sound of crashing waves before strolling to the golf course or spa, or just relaxing on their private deck. Transportation is even provided via club golf cart as the use of cars is limited to the Abaco Club’s few main streets. The centrepiece of The Abaco Club is undoubtedly the tropical links style, 18‐hole golf course designed by Donald Steel and Tom Mackenzie. It is perennially ranked as the No 1 course in The Bahamas and among the top handful of courses in the islands. In addition to golf, a two‐mile stretch of white sand beach and turquoise water provide a protected sanctuary for swimming, snorkeling and other water sports. World-class bone fishing, deep-sea fishing and boating off Abaco’s shores and surrounding islands can also be arranged to give guests further true Bahamian experiences. www.theabacoclub.com

Announcing Asia Pacific’s Best Property Professionals… This is the first region to be judged each year as part of the International Property Awards and it never fails to set a consistently high standard for all other regions to follow. Indeed, Asia Pacific Property Awards’ entrants hold a long-standing record for the highest number of World’s Best Awards when re-judged at international level. Judging is carried out through a meticulous process involving a panel of over 80 experts covering every aspect of the property business. The panel is chaired by three peers from UK Parliament who oversee the different categories – Lord Caithness for development – Lord Best for real estate – and Lord Courtown for architecture and interior design. The judges not only look for the most impressive and innovative projects, they also examine the sustainability and eco-friendliness of every property and development that comes under their scrutiny. Interior design projects have to be full of that all-important ‘wow-factor’ while also proving functional and practical for their occupants’ use. As for real estate agency categories, service and services are key elements for success. We look for outstanding customer service and a wide range of property-related services to support clients at every step of the buying and selling processes. All the award-winning companies listed in this publication have demonstrated their expertise by competing against exceedingly strong competition from within the Asia Pacific region. Many congratulations to each and every one.

   proposed phase in the DK City master plan, there was an opportunity to explore spacious design elements to open up the architectural form of the mixed-use towers. By manipulating their geometry, internal spaces were created to provide cooling mechanisms and vertically ascending microclimates. The gradual direction was shaped by consultations with surrounding establishments and educational institutions to settle upon a design that would heighten access and integration of facilities for prospective residents and visitors. With this in mind, the design featured green considerations and used building techniques and configurations that would produce more natural and environmentally friendly elements.

The three towers were built in a circular and attractive spiraled way to allow optimum views and orientation. The highest tower features duplex residential units, while the second highest comprises office suites in a duplex layout. The third tower in the centre offers duplex residential studio suites and hotel suites. Towering interconnected sky bridges at a height of around 160 metres form a cohesive structural element between all the towers and incorporate viewing decks for the public, making this a landmark for tourism. The 16 storey internal voids resulting from the design of the structures are filled and adorned with sky gardens.

   unturned in the planning of the design for D’Twist’s three towering structures and they have been conceived in a way that exudes architectural prowess. This is demonstrated by their complex helical orientation that takes on a modern reinterpretation of traditional tropical design techniques. By carrying through this hybrid helical twisted configuration, the towers are able to cope with the number of units per floor, along with the ability to optimize views and give a more elegant proportionality. There were many components to the development that needed intricacy in mapping out a plan of action. Every aspect of the building was brought to the forefront during

planning stages and further enhanced its value. One such successfully planned design execution was the use of ‘in-between’ spaces or loggias (known in Malay as serambi). Explained in more detail, these internal voids formed from the design of the towers were accentuated with full helical twist sky garden features, while also acting as a passive solar control device. By embarking on this project, DK Group’s goal was to establish a prominent landmark that exhibits towering structures with iconic designs. In addition to this, D’Twist is also being constructed as the tallest residential building in South East Asia. When combined with the commercial components in this integrated site, the value of the entire venue is increased significantly.

Made up of a diverse range of components, it features a wide range of facilities that have been designed with an open and welcoming concept coupled with the best finishing available in Malaysia. The three towers sit on top of an eightstorey podium and three basement levels. The three towers have been designed to accommodate SOVO style double-storey residential and office units. The highest tower at approximately 285 metres contains SOVO duplex residential units. The second highest tower at 200 metres contains office suites in a duplex layout, whilst the third tower at 178 metres accommodates the residential

studio suites following the same duplex configuration. DK Group has sought to create an exemplary development within a tight urban space. One of its main objectives was to minimize costs and maximize capability. Operational considerations included DK Twist’s desired image, the degree of public access, operating hours, growth demands, security issues and economic objectives amongst many others. Through value engineering, the company has been able to provide a means for assessing the performance versus cost of each design element and building component. A number of innovative technologies will also be used to ensure a quick delivery time and high quality construction quality.

The corporate tower and units are sectioned off so as to create a wholly self-sustaining corporate environment within the entire site with every internal space put to the best use. Tower 1 consists entirely of 300 boutique office suites of a duplex configuration with a mezzanine level and interconnecting doors to adjacent office suites. Their contemporary and spacious layouts are specially designed for 21st century business needs. In conjunction with the corporate component of the site, a wide range of facilities that span from business to leisure is available to all occupants with some

The office tower will have its own business centre together with less formal business centre facilities on floors at every seventh level. D’Twist’s comprehensive security system will feature integrated BSS (Business Support Systems) with car parking control and security levels to provide the most extensively secure safety mechanisms. Located in the vibrant and quick-paced town of Bandar Sunway, the offices provide an ideal, well-connected position for businesses that can be accessed through a number of different road systems.

   world leading global architecture and design practice providing architecture, interior, landscape and urban design services. A multiaward winning company, Aedas has been successful with all 10 of the following projects. Ciputra International in Jakarta, Indonesia is a mixed-use development of Grade A offices, high-end apartments, a five-star hotel, F&B and entertainment components in multiple, striking towers built over three phases. Aedas’ masterplan concept for this impressive project has been inspired by the ingenious design of the Rangoon Cooper flowers. Therefore, buildings are positioned as leaves in an outward growing manner which allows each one to have maximum views and cooling breezes from the prevailing wind. The boulevard represents the flower’s sturdy stem from which the leaves are attached, just as the buildings and their roadways connect to this central axis for clarity and ease of connectivity.

The Heart of Yiwu

Bankside Towers is a Class A office building and forms part of The Urban Crossing mixeduse development in Shanghai. Aedas has mainly designed the project in three parts. The first is an iconic gateway which links the retail axis to the waterfront plaza and also establishes a strong civic presence. Secondly, the crossing is a structure comprising two weaved platforms at upper and lower floor levels. This enables them to receive pedestrian flow from different directions and redistribute it to various platforms and activity spaces. Part three consists of two towers containing open space offices. This simple shifting enriches the overall spatial experience and allows more interaction with the surroundings. The Heart of Yiwu is an ‘urban living’ plaza in Zhejiang province which aims to become an iconic retail flagship development offering a one-stop service lifestyle centre.

architecture, Aedas’ design concept for the project has been inspired by the form of the Yiwu River. In the same way that the river has brought wealth, trade and culture to the city, the design aims to bring these elements to Yiwu and its people. Highlights include its façade or ‘cultural wall’ where subtle variations of the openings of its stones represent the old city wall and the gradual development of Yiwu from traditional to modern. A skywalk staircase also holds historical significance as it represents the 42 steps used by tradesmen at nearby Beimen Street and now forms a 24-hour external retail route. Element Suzhou Science and Technology Town (SSTT) in Suzhou, Jiangsu is the first Element Hotel in Asia and will include 191 guestrooms, a ballroom, all-day restaurant and other associated hotel amenities. Aedas has incorporated the Element Hotel brand’s ecoconscious philosophy into the hotel’s master

plan, architecture and landscape schemes to create a delicate and cultural lifestyle ambience within a unique site, bordered by a lake on three sides and green belt to the north. Elegant with modern aesthetics, Element SSTT is perfectly integrated with the surrounding natural environment while maintaining its own architectural autonomy. Its design manages to blur the boundary between interior and exterior to create a clean and environmentally-friendly green building that is at one with nature. Shijiazhaung Ximei Business Hotel in Hebei Province is a five-star commercial hotel with 378 guestrooms. Standing 26 storeys high, it includes a lounge, restaurants and conference and leisure facilities. The hotel’s architectural design was inspired by the traditional Chinese lantern. Aedas’ designers combined the study of lanterns with specific hotel functions resulting in a set of rectangular elements arranged for optimal performance.

A stunning cantilevered ‘glass box’ at the corner of the podium forms a glowing lantern and becomes an icon for the city while the hotel’s exterior is made up of a combination of stone and transparent glass curtain wall. This articulated façade provides maximum daylight via a beautiful modern structure using durable materials that are unique to the existing environment. Heartland 66 in downtown Wuhan City is a mixed-use development featuring a unique architectural design. The client’s requirements for this project were to design a 50 metre high, six storey premium retail podium, a distinctive 330 metre high office tower and three elegant serviced apartment towers of 150 metres, 175 metres and 200 metres high respectively. Throughout the long history of Chinese culture, auspicious wishes and blessings are tied together by a Chinese knot known as the Infinity Loop. In the design of Heartland 66, Aedas has woven together the retail and

cinema masses, external F&B terraces, sunken courtyard and landscaping by the Infinity Loop. Represented in the feature roof with its linear skylights and greenery, it forms an elegant symbol of fortune, harmony and infinite prosperity. Shanghai Greenland Qingpu Xujing District is near the Hongqiao CBD, adjacent to the world’s largest Convention & Exhibition Centre. It consists of a five-star hotel, shopping centre and sales gallery. The three buildings are within a larger mixed-use masterplan which will become a new business centre for the district. Aedas has designed the three buildings in a holistic way, taking inspiration from the form of leaves. Most of the tower blocks are orientated ‘perpendicularly’ towards a Central Oasis. This is turn acts as the major attraction point connecting each zone as an active hub for providing access and view channels across the site. The gallery is recently completed.

LAND Experience Center (LEC) in Xi’an is intended as an exhibition centre with a fully immersive space to introduce the public to LAND, one of the city’s major property development companies. As the company is developing some of the largest commercial properties in Xi’an, LEC has also been designed as its sales and marketing centre. The sculptural form of LEC’s exhibition hall, multi-purpose room, administration offices and a separate display wing derives from the undulating topography of Juangtu Plateau. This interactive hub will showcase LAND’s development strategies and vision for the city centre while providing a sensory experience of the feature programs.

entertainment for a holistic experience and Grade A office spaces intended for financial institutions and multi-national corporations. As the development spans over three land plots, the client’s brief called for all buildings to be designed to facilitate connectivity and sharing of amenities. Given its prime location and civic significance, the development is envisaged to form a new benchmark of ‘live, work and play’ in the Minhang District. Renhe Residential in Chengdu is part of a mixed-use development consisting of a commercial portion in the north and 15 residential towers in the south with a car park in between. For the residential part, by disposition of the towers, a central landscaped area is created. This provides a scenic view for the apartments as it also includes stunning water features, green walls and clubhouse facilities offering natural lighting and ventilation to the lower car park floors.

  , DPWT is committed to creating innovative quality space suited to individual clients’ needs in areas of architecture, interior design, planning and product design. The company has progressively grown out of its base in Hong Kong to managing projects in China and Southeast Asia. It has won awards with the two following interior design projects, both in China. The client’s brief for a new image for the reception and demo room of Siemens BSCE Office in Beijing required DPWT to reflect the company’s strong image and identity. Aspects of Siemens’ culture, brand and business as well as its history and tradition were all to be demonstrated within the design concept. Nowadays, giant multi-national companies not only focus on creating a workplace for flexibility and cost efficiency, they also recognize the importance of developing a tool

for strengthening the brand on a broader base by maintaining a high design profile. An office’s reception area is the first place encountered within a corporate business and must therefore present a clear picture to the world of what that company represents. The demo room is another important area as it is used to showcase latest developments and products to visiting patrons. Besides the corporate philosophy, strategic planning and technological advancements can also be imprinted on to the visitors’ memory effectively. Therefore, the corporate brand has to permeate every aspect of the interiors of these two crucial areas. DPWT carried out the Siemens BSCE Office project in several stages to ensure that the building was still able to function normally over the four-month construction period. The chosen design is an up-to-date and yet timeless

expression which is well matched with the Siemens image. Monotone colours, a simple design language, well-rooted German furniture and modern materials such as steel and glass are used extensively. The reception area components comprise of the reception counter, waiting area, conference pool with meeting rooms and the most important elements – The Siemens’ History and Development Walls. The former is designed in a curved shape in maple veneer with different sized niches in the wall displaying Siemens’ products from 1851. The design of this area also turns it into a boutique museum signifying Siemens’ historical significance and value. Opposite the History Wall is the Development Wall displaying the company’s major events and breakthroughs over the past few decades and projecting future developments over coming decades.

The demo room is divided into several functional zonings in a U-shaped configuration with all display areas being equipped with sliding panels to show Siemens’ products and services via informative diagrams. These spaces include the sample display wall, poster image area, presentation and video broadcast zone. Therefore, the design needed to cater for the specific features of each zone and yet blend all these different areas into a holistic and integrated design image. The design also introduces a reception vestibule with a backdrop wall featuring a world map. This pinpoints Siemens’ major office locations and shows its spread of business across different continents. The reception area acts as an ideal transitional space in which visitors can gather before experiencing a series of presentations and demonstrations.

Teleperformance Office

DPWT was also commissioned to create an interior design concept for Teleperformance who were setting up a new call centre in Xian. Teleperformance is a multinational company offering CRM call centre service to renowned companies all over the world. The 5,000m2 whole floor call centre is planned to accommodate more than 500 call agents’ workstations to provide exclusive CRM services for the technological giant company Apple. Today it is a pre-requisite for new offices to be functional and efficient in order to achieve high productivity. However, besides these practical considerations, it’s important that the design of the working environment should promote wellness for those using it every day. Hence DPWT had to balance aspects of both practicality and creativity in establishing a working model for this type of busy office.

The whole design is divided into six minor areas – the reception, call agent open production floor, training rooms and related facilities, an interview area with lobby, executive management area and leisure/ support area. These complex requirements called for very profound functional planning and spatial organization. Due to all the different functions and various types of users, a meticulous circulation plan complete with traffic flow and security control was essential in order to maintain the surveillance of the whole premises. DPWT recognized that communication is the most important organisational aspect of a modern, forward thinking office. Although individual work can be carried out anywhere, the exchange of information and expertise remains an essential means of finding solutions to complicated problems

and learning new knowledge. Collective intelligence and enthusiasm can be generated by establishing an environment that provides private space and a positive and pleasant atmosphere. Forming exactly that, ‘The Lab’ is located at the central core of the agents’ office – a place where people can meet and chat and which will encourage social integration between the call agents. In addition, ‘The Huddle’ provides a relaxed and inviting environment where call agents can have shorter, more spontaneous discussions. The entire office is designed in a modern way, yet with a distinctly colourful tone to deliver a cheerful and relaxed atmosphere while also promoting a highly efficient working environment. Within the reception and canteen colours are employed to project a vivid ambience. Extensive use of spray painted glass in a red and blue palette is used

in the reception to anchor a professional yet contemporary image to every visitor. In the breakout canteen area, vibrant tones such as yellow, blue and lime enhance the spatial quality and create a high energy feel. Colourful pendant lighting provides a relaxing yet also energetic ambience which helps to stimulate the working momentum and thus increase the productivity. The call agent production floor is designed with a high, airy ceiling and all workstations follow a layout perpendicular to the windows. This allows the floor to fill with natural daylight and illuminate the whole office. Workstations are in a monotone with ergonometric chairs to ensure a better seating position for the call operatives. The result is an uplifting workplace where users can feel best placed to achieve maximum productivity with minimum stress.

The company’s four latest awards span across its individual offices located in China, India and Thailand. Two basic requirements were specified by the client for the architectural design of Sanya Serenity Marina in Hainan, China. Firstly, all necessary standards for an international marina capable of hosting the famous Volvo Ocean Racing Series had to be met. Additionally, the requirements for the participants’ reception, display area and events monitoring had to be provided. Secondly, the normal day to day operational and reception functions were to be in place after major racing events. Chapman Taylor set out to design the marina area and adjacent land as a whole, rather than as separate entities. In order

to achieve the marina’s highest efficiency and create unique characteristics to attract visitors and generate wealth, the transport system, functional zones and landscaping were specially integrated. China’s fast growing economy has seen an increase in consumerism with one particular aspect being an increased demand for highend luxury items such as yachts and motor cruisers. However, while many people may visit the marina, only a small group actually takes part in the yachting element, most are there for tourism and leisure purposes. Therefore, the high-end luxury aspect of the commercial buildings attached to the marina is key to its economic success. Built in two phases, Sanya Serenity Marina will eventually become one of the largest yachting centres in China and Asia with 305 berths. Meeting the needs of local yachtsmen, it will also provide spare berths and related service facilities to visiting vessels.

As the brand is highly regarded, the stores needed to reflect not only the immaculate service and products but also capture the colonial heritage of the hotel, allowing the customers old and new to connect visually to the brand. The challenge was to create a concept that could deliver quick, yet top quality service to large volumes of customers.

The Mandarin Oriental Shop @ Siam Paragon, Bangkok was designated as the first store to receive a trial renovation. The 190m area was benchmarked as the Flagship store for the brand. ‘Modern Colonial’ was the chosen concept as its rich material palette held a strong relationship with the Mandarin Oriental brand. This helped to create a look that existing customers could relate to and feel comfortable with, yet still enable them to recognize the sophistication within the design. Once the exquisite service was integrated, the two elements blended harmoniously to give the desired ambience.

Alta Ego Lounge & Night Club

 I is a Singaporebased design studio. Its team of 12 different nationalities comprises interior designers, architects, stylists, interior architects and project managers – each bringing their own unique experience and ensuring projects reflect a global prospective. It believes that good design improves quality of life, affects mood and invokes a sense of well-being. The company has created Kasara Townhouses in Niseko, Japan, using a combination of luxurious western-style furnishings while maintaining Japanese influences throughout the home. This is one of eight townhouses situated at the base of Mount Annapuri. The homes are inspired by traditional Japanese Machiya architecture. In keeping with the Japanese design principle of Shibui, or restraint, features include: a wood-

stained feature wall, wooden bathtubs, rounded wooden ceilings and slate floor tiles. The company also designed the interiors of the Alta Ego Lounge and Night Club in downtown Singapore. This is a three-storey building and the owner wanted a different decor and feel for each floor that would reflect different music genres. Features included illuminated tables in bright pink, red and blue, a bold geometric floor, custom-made outdoor seating adding a touch of humour through whale, hippo and elephant shapes and a shark’s jaw used to frame the light sources above the banqueting seating. Design Intervention wanted a design concept that would keep clubbers guessing as they moved from floor to floor – a perfect setting for an intriguing and unforgettable night out.

apartment created for a Singaporean businessman and his family. The client had an inherited collection of Chinese Peranakan antique furniture and a collection of antique Japanese woodblock print and textiles. The family wanted an interior design that would imbue a subtle contemporary elegance with a polished hotel feel while at the same time showcasing their collections to best effect. The company turned a tired date penthouse with generous proportions into a stylish elegant city home incorporating the best elements of western, Japanese and Chinese styles to create a home that truly reflects the client’s tastes and heritage. Features included: wallpaper based on a classic Japanese motif and reinterpreted with hints of gold to add a touch of luxe and inspiration from Seigaiha, a motif consisting

of overlapping concentric circles which some say represents a fan; others a wave. It has been used to decorate traditional lacquer ware and clothing for over 1,000 years. Finally, Design Intervention has provided the following services for The Sentosa, a client’s beach house – hardware and ironmongery, lighting design and furniture layout, interior space planning and design, carpentry, millwork and much more. With a young family and two dogs the client wanted a home that was practical and offered an easy, relaxed mood, yet still elegant enough to entertain business clients. Features included a bespoke rug in graduating shades of blue emulating water views to draw the outside in; ceiling fans that evoke a sense of balmy island life and a stunning coffee table made from the root of a Banyan tree.

Township

D

 V, a renowned property developer in Malaysia, has won three awards for the following impressive projects. Seri Austin Township is set upon 500 acres of sprawling land in the district of Johor Bahru, Johor. Due to its highly sought after location within Iskandar Malaysia, this residential project is being developed as a model township. Market research revealed that the property market was in need of a township that offers a balanced blend of convenience and natural beauty. Aided by a comprehensive marketing strategy by Dynasty View highlighting the development’s many strengths, Seri Austin Township has already gained significant recognition. It has been named the 1st Smart & Healthy Community Township for being the first in Johor Bahru to provide high-speed broadband to residents as well as designated

bicycle lanes. Seri Austin Township was also the first to initiate and implement the Effective Microorganisms (EM) Programme that was jointly organized by Johor Town Council to encourage an environmentally friendly lifestyle. These accolades reward the innovative efforts the company has directed towards providing a beneficial community lifestyle, a healthy environment and quality homes. The 500-acre township has a range of properties including single and double storey terrace houses, cluster homes, semidetached homes, bungalows, shop offices and apartments. All units have the best fittings to conserve electricity as well as the water supply which is confined to an underground tunnel. Designed in a North-South orientation to allow maximum natural light and ventilation, the homes also incorporate Feng Shui principles into their layouts.

Seri Austin Gallery

In order to market all the key features effectively to the target audience, the Seri Austin Township was conceptualized and produced as an urban township that is in harmony with nature. It is this cohesive environment that provides the residents and occupants of the township with a whole host of mental and physical benefits. The development is targeted at working professionals, foreign buyers, expatriates and investors who want to be part of an exclusive, modern and healthy community environment. Investors from countries such as Singapore, China and Japan are also key targets due to their purchasing of past and current properties within the township. In order to optimally reach this target audience, various types of media were used to maximize the campaign’s exposure. This included print, press, online through the development’s website and social

media as well as activation through launch parties and public relations events. Feedback from the Seri Austin Township marketing campaign has been very positive and shows great promise for future developments that are also in the pipeline. So far 3,500 units have been launched and 90% of these have been sold. Dynasty View also built the Seri Austin Gallery within the Seri Austin Township. It forms the office and gallery for the inspection, management and sales of the project. The two-storey property serves to promote the township; its properties; lifestyle benefits and numerous facilities while also creating awareness of green townships. The gallery falls under the 1st Smart Township Telekom Malaysia High Speed Broadband Experience Center for Iskandar and is renowned for its modern design and unique features.

Seri Austin Gallery

The gallery’s intriguing exterior is both inviting and eye catching in order to attract more visitors to the location. The main entrance, ground floor and even the second storey will feature lobbies and lounge areas to entertain and welcome visitors in an open, functional, yet relaxing setting. Its interior design is tailored to suit each particular use of the space. As an example, for a waiting area or departmental quarter, tiles are sufficient for the final finish. However, for more formal and higher ranked office areas, such as the boardroom carpet is more luxurious. The space planning has been conceived by Dynasty View as an uninterrupted, flowing journey, embodying freedom, class and elegance that contribute towards a unique and exciting user interface. By creating a non-traditional use of space and creating a fusion of design elements

and surfaces, all areas can seamlessly interconnect to each other. As for functionality of the gallery, all of the necessary standard public spaces, such as the primary sales area, discussion space, display zones, meeting rooms, VIP rooms, lounge spaces and general staff areas such as workspaces and meeting areas will be provided. Managers’ rooms and the conference room will be situated on level one while the grand gallery is as impressive its name suggests. Equipped with a concierge, lounge, conference room and function rooms to accommodate discussions and presentations it can also be used for showcase purposes as well as an entertainment area for elite guests, business associates and investors. In line with the overall vision of the Seri Austin Township, the sales gallery will optimize its design to incorporate eco friendly elements,

high accessibility and great convenience and wellbeing for its occupants and visitors. D’Lagoon, also in the Seri Austin Township, is being developed as a residential project which will add great value to the growing township. Including both luxury apartments and landed strata units, there are only six units per floor and the entire development consists of only 262 spacious units. These range from two to four bedrooms with two to three bathrooms. Exclusivity is one of the foremost factors Dynasty View has kept in mind for D’Lagoon and with this low level of occupancy, it will ensure a more relaxing and peaceful quality of life for residents right at the water’s edge. Designed in harmony with the rest of Seri Austin Township, D’Lagoon will be distinctly modern and place great importance on the preservation of the natural environment that

surrounds the site with its lake and abundance of green areas. Spread across 6.56 acres of land, the development’s grand statement entrance displays an inviting water feature accenting the gold coloured plated lettering of its name. Targeted to include young professionals and expatriates looking for homes that feature contemporary design and all modern conveniences, the residences will implement a minimalist concept to utilize the space in the best possible way. In addition, the entire façade of the development will reflect a design that is distinct from surrounding properties. Another important goal for Dynasty View was to incorporate a wide array of facilities and amenities for the convenience of residents. Much like a hotel, these leisure activities make us of D’Lagoon’s location, community, setting and natural tranquil surroundings.

Suria Residence

E

   in Malaysia, Sunsuria Berhad has delivered more than 2,500 innovative, high value and quality properties in varied segments from light industrial factories to commercial units and residences. The company’s two current award-winning developments are Suria Residence and Sunsuria Seventh Avenue. Suria Residence is a luxurious freehold serviced apartment project in the Suria Jelutong enclave. Spanning 3.55 acres, it is part of the mature neighbourhood of Bukit Jelutong alongside a number of residential and commercial developments with complete amenities and services. The development is divided into two majestic towers and comprises 545 units of serviced apartments with 291 units in Tower A and 254 units in Tower B. While conforming to working environmental standards, Suria Residence goes one step further by incorporating these green features into the building’s exterior design, creating a greener lifestyle for its homeowners.

Sunsuria Berhad has designed the landscaping around Suria Residence to form natural barriers and enclaves within the public areas to create private spaces that residents and visitors can enjoy. Convenient seating and facilities are also provided to make the landscaping even more inviting with plenty of activities for all ages within a safe and protected environment. The vision for this project was to incorporate the use of greenery, not only in the landscape of the development, but also within the actual features of the building. The façade demonstrates this perfectly with its green wall panels and cascading water feature at the development’s impressive entrance. Sunsuria Berhad’s goal for this project was to create a development that would, firstly, be green in its design, architecture, ambience and spirit; and secondly, a development that will make a long standing impression on tenants and guests by bringing them unique features such as landscape areas, dedicated gardens and

outdoor activities combined together to create a place of serenity and peace of mind. A number of different plants and flowers have been used to decorate the beautiful landscape which will include dedicated zones for flora which is characteristic to that particular area. Inspired by the natural eco-system that surrounds Suria Residence, native plants and flowers matching a certain style or theme were segregated while other plants were chosen to blend the development together harmoniously. These traditional native floras are identifiable by the surrounding exterior architectural style. Adjoining features have also been given a natural, earthy texture complemented by a contemporary eco-design. Dedicated green spaces have themes including healing, children, youth, party, hammock, leisure and lastly, a secret garden. This is a magical place where children and youngsters can engage safely in outdoor activities. It features a fabulous maze of

beautifully manicured hedges designed to attract their attention and challenge them to explore its depths. Seating is provided to allow those accompanying the children to sit in comfort and watch the adventures unfold. The party garden features a fire pit as its main attraction. Designed to encourage outdoor activities with family, friends or large groups, it offers a campfire feel but within a safe environment. Yet another fascinating landscape design concept is a floating gym over the swimming pool. The gym has hanging plants across its façade giving it a modern yet earthy look. Situated above the pool’s water cascade feature, it allows residents to experience the full extent of the overall design. The landscape plan is focused upon preserving, protecting and enhancing the natural features of the site’s vegetation, scenic views and wildlife. All these important features play an integral role in the functioning of this eco-system as a whole.

Sunsuria Seventh Avenue 1

Sunsuria Seventh Avenue consists of contemporary, semi-detached shop offices that were introduced into the neighbourhood of Setia Alam as a way to break the mould of conventional, existing examples in the area. The entire Sunsuria Seventh Avenue development is spread across 30 acres of freehold land and this shop office project forms phase one, covering 16.48 acres. Phase two will be a mixed-use development consisting of a retail mall, serviced apartments, offices and SOHO units. The inspiration behind this development came from Sunsuria Berhad’s observations in prominent areas of Kuala Lumpur and its surrounding cities. It became apparent that there is a growing demand by business owners for commercial units that are larger than the

norm. Areas such as Bangsar and SS2 in Kuala Lumpur have seen an overwhelming demand for commercial units with the layout of a semidetached home. This has resulted in all units of this type unit being fully occupied. The collection of new shop offices comprises 57 units of two and three storeys high. Their design and build caters to both business and leisure retailers, from boutiques and F&B outlets to corporate offices and other commercial outlets. It brings both business and leisure together in a way that complements both sectors. Each shop office is set on a spacious area of land ranging from 60 x 130 feet to 93 x 145 feet with a built up area of 4,800 to 12,300 square feet. The development’s build and layout strives to push the envelope for shop offices in the

area by offering features that are a step away from commonplace designs. Rather than providing high-rise office buildings, Sunsuria Seventh Avenue aims to give prospective occupants quality spaces within their own individual units. Built to offer a property that complements the surrounding landscape, rather than compete with it, the shop offices present an attractive and unique solution. Individuality, openness and the relationship between the internal and external space were key considerations in the project’s design concept. In view of this, open spaces were created within and around the buildings to allow the internal activities to be extended to the outside. The use of continuous glazed facades also means that there is also a direct visual link between the interior and exterior spaces. This

allows the buildings to be directly engaged with the external environment. This reinvents the way many businesses are being carried out. With a typical row of shop offices, one unit is removed alternatively every two units, creating an open space at every pair of shops. Every unit essentially becomes a corner unit, with all three facades of the shop gaining exposure. Inside, each unit has a column free setting to allow for more open space to display and showcase products or services. The ground floor of each one also features a ceiling height of 15 feet to offer a huge space that is airy and cool for both staff and customers. Last but not least, a private lift connects to an open rooftop area with a view of the surrounding landscape which can be used as garden or relaxing lounge for occupants to enjoy during their work breaks.

  B, Singapore is a 797-unit development located within an exclusive private residential enclave, beckoning to home buyers and investors with its abundance of amenities and growth potential. The development is located close to the Paya Lebar growth centre and the future Bidadari Estate, envisioned as a “tranquil urban oasis” with a “garden living environment”. The architectural planning for Botanique at Bartley is forward-looking and serves to overcome the challenges of urban living. The towers are organized to capitalize on expansive panoramic views and to minimize overlooking, creating added privacy amidst high-rise living. The resultant spatial quality and livable environment belies its 2.8 gross plot ratio.

  H K since 1981, Henderson Land is a leading property developer. The company creates award-winning new homes and commercial developments, ranging from city landmarks to exceptional residential properties such as Double Cove. Set in the suburban area of Lok Wo Sha, Double Cove’s master plan delivers 265,000m of sustainable housing in 21 sleek towers amid natural woodlands. These towers are stepped in pairs from north to south, resulting in a selfventilating landscaped corridor that maximizes available space and light. This also gives each residence a greater feeling of space and excellent vision over sea, sky and landscape. The paired towers are arranged along two opposite curves that define the edge of the new park – the concept of the project is ‘Living in

the Park’ with around 3,500 residential units ranging from 50 to 320m from which to choose. There will also be 25,000m of commercial and clubhouse facilities, 1,100 car parking spaces, a cycling track and jogging path around the site’s perimeter. Green space totals about 50 per cent of the site and is complemented by green roofs and walls and attractive water features. World renowned architect Lord Richard Rogers in collaboration with RSHP is the design architect of this project. Queen’s Road Central by Henderson Land overlooks the centre of Hong Kong’s Central Business District and is designed to be a premier location for art galleries and showrooms.

The company has won awards for the two following interior design projects, both of which are in Hong Kong. Bahuio Villa’s occupants are open-minded and embrace a very personalized interior and architectural design within their 3,000 square feet home. The feel of the American wilderness in the 50s and the metropolitan glamour of the 60s is encapsulated in a bold and experimental application of colours. The clients’ personal nostalgic collections are presented in the sitting room, while every corner of the property features objects and patterns with various styles, textures and weights. However, all these details unite to exude a contemporary vibe to the overall design.

On entering the house there is an exceptional wine hanging system using vermillion red leather ropes. This serves as an art installation to parallel with the vibrant oil painting that injects energy into the dining room with its long, bench-like seats made of oak. The bar forms a private zone where the owners and their guests can enjoy drinks at a high table or relax in an orange leather sofa. This vibrantly coloured seating and the red brick wall add spice to this intimate entertaining area. To interplay with the nostalgia and contemporariness of the sitting room and dining room, the study is furnished like an arsenal, adding power and masculinity to the space. The bedrooms are delicately arranged with peach pink leather wooden panels and this gentle theme extends to the master bathroom with its striking glass basin. All features

throughout the design of this house show a harmony that specially reflects the exquisite tastes and sophistication of the owners. When it comes to creating a duplex apartment in a high-rise building, most Hong Kongers would prefer structures comprising of upper and lower floors for a grand open view. However, with Belcher’s Hill, SamsonWong Design’s challenge was to make two apartments on the same floor into a duplex to create a large transverse space by horizontally combining two separate units. Situated in Mid-levels West, this 3,000 square feet apartment in a 340-storey high-rise building, boasts a spacious living and dining room. Its interior design invites the outside in and harmonises with other zones thanks to carefully chosen colours, shapes and patterns. The first moment the owners and designers entered the apartment, they were impressed by

the blue sky of West Point and so drew instant inspiration from its colour. SamsonWong Design then went on to create a soft and gentle style that perfectly reflects the refined taste of the occupants. Curves and the delicate shade of sky blue link up beautifully throughout the entire apartment. A sophisticated white drawing on a blue background forms the television wall. This echoes with the curved feature wall which extends to the dining room. Creating a winding yet cohesive style, other features include a wavy backed sofa, a carpet featuring coloured balls and a cloud-shaped bar counter which is formed integrally and invokes vivid imagination. With all windows facing towards Victoria Harbour, the apartment enjoys abundant light during the day; when night falls, dozens of elegant lamps hanging above the dining table cast the glamorous aura of a star-filled sky.

With architecture-trained designers in its studio, Topic Design approaches each project with a holistic view. Every project goes through an uncompromising process of conceptualizing and crafting details that resonate comfort, luxury and function. The Show Suite @ The Orchard Residences in Singapore covers an area of 2,465 square feet in a high-end residential tower. Topic Design Studio’s client gave the designers a free approach in creating an artistic and luxurious show suite where their collectable artworks and artifacts could be showcased in a comfortable and natural space. As the artworks are oriental in nature, the company decided upon South-East Asian materials,

including a majestic and royal colour palette and floral and exotic patterns with subtle contrasting textures in simple lines and frames. Luxury, comfort and culture sets the style of this apartment. Its eclectic mix of European, modern classic furniture was juxtaposed with oriental colours on backdrops in the final design to complement the array of paintings throughout the interior. The design focus was to create a comfortable and luxurious interior with picture-perfect settings for artworks. When entering the apartment the experience starts with stepping on a giant, grey rug featuring lilies before being greeted by a bespoke white console with gold inlays at the entrance. Highlights of the living area include stingray leather, high-gloss solid wood frames which hang the artworks, antique

High-end branded furniture adorns the interior spaces, including Baker’s plush dining chairs, Barbara Barry’s timeless sofa and Baxter’s impressive antique brass dining table. There is also a bespoke writing desk that is intricately designed to match a timeless Diana chair. Topic Design Studio was also commissioned to renovate a four-bedroom apartment with an area of 2,562 square feet within the St Regis Residence on the exclusive Cuscaden Road. This area forms the beginning of a world-class shopping and dining belt in Singapore. The existing apartment featured a minimalist, masculine interior which necessitated a complete overhaul to suit the new owner’s brief. The client wanted a cosmopolitan feel to the interior that reflected

his wide travelling experiences. This led Topic Design Studio to create a concept which took the form of a ‘mind tour’ to form a bespoke apartment that stimulates the imagination. Beginning with an elegant private lift lobby filled with the scent of magnolias, the apartment unfolds into a straightforward layout. This is complemented by well-proportioned loose furniture featuring different details and finishes as well as elaborate wall features. Distinctive yet contrasting colour schemes and patternings give hierarchy to the space, while Longhi coffee tables in high gloss, macasar ebony mirror the wall finishes. In turn, a customized silk wool rug contrasts beautifully with the cooling, marble floor. Finer details such as inlays of gold, stainless steel and beveled edges to mirrors and marble adorn every surface of this stunning interior.

To create a mysterious and yet luxurious environment, the project manipulated modern materials and transformed them into three concrete designs: the concave and convex mirror wall, the reflecting and illusion mirror wall and the exquisite wine cabinet complementing the modern chandelier in the dining room. In the bedroom, features include a wall behind the bed covered by Jacquard upholstery while black mirrors next to the bed have a fabulous floral frosted pattern. Rhetoric of Space is a sales centre which provided a platform for sales and services between contractors and homebuyers.

in purchasing a home and the values that customers want to see expressed within the sales process. The project is located near to a highway with heavy traffic, so the challenge was to create an inviting area that could offset the hectic exterior environment. Two natural elements took centre stage in the design; the wall-to-ceiling panels in the reception area which are reminiscent of clouds going up into the sky, which gave the stone wall a cloud-wreathed effect; and the zigzag partitions in the meeting area creating a three-dimensional effect which symbolised sound waves in the air. CIID also created The Realm of Confluence, another sales centre in which the hustle and bustle of outside is brought to a gentler pace within the realm of the space. The client’s

wish was that this development in Linkou District, in the western part of New Taipei in northern Taiwan ,would promote a sense of peace. Therefore, wood, stone and other natural materials were brought indoors. Spatial arrangements extend horizontally giving visitors a sense of relaxing width. The architecture is surrounded by serene pools and streams on four sides and decorated by elegant antique ceramic urns, trees and natural stones. In the main reception area four stone-faced walls were used to partition the discussion areas. Dark wooden tables and pale ash sofas also provide a comfortable, relaxing experience. The site of the project is surrounded by tall apartment complexes, so the idea was to create an escape and tranquil space among a highdensity population.

   and neglected lakes to create beautiful housing on the edge of a clear and healthy body of water was the objective of KSO Summarecon Serpong developer. It has changed something of low value to that of high value, showing that housing development can be a means for improving the sustainability of nature. The residential development, called Grisea, has been created with the purpose of building houses while maintaining the existing topography. It was also created to be a group of houses integrated into a healthy ecosystem. Located on Lake Grisea, a former sand quarry, this 6.17-hectare residential area is within 21 kilometres of metropolitan Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia. There are also only 166 units of housing, shared facilities and support buildings.

The houses are planned within large open spaces with trees and water stretching into the distance in front of them. Grisea residences have a resort-like feel, consisting of two floors. With tropical, modern-style architecture, the houses have a land area of 162m, 180m and 216m. All buildings are designed with maximum space, with a ratio of 60 per cent to 40 per cent for buildings and green spaces respectively. One of the biggest challenges for KSO Summarecon Serpong was transforming the weed-infested, swamp-like shallow lake into a healthy ecosystem, which is now a habitat for species of fish and poultry. Several large trees that existed before the development were kept and maintained to beautify the banks.

This all creates an atmosphere of serenity and beauty in the region. This residential area, has the look of a villa resort. There is a club with an area of 1,800m, providing residents with an infinity pool of 207m, children’s playground, a fishpond and a multi-purpose hall. On the side of the lake, residents can also enjoy the 349-metre jogging track as well as an amphitheatre, a 25-metre reflexology centre, a clubhouse and a place for yoga. Adding to the residents’ peace of mind is 24-hour security and CCTV. These advantages ensured that homes in Grisea were immediately snapped up and sold out when launching initial sales. The area is also equipped with a centralized waste management system and a sewage treatment plan so that household waste

does not pollute the environment and can be reused for watering plants. This is being used as showcase example for Tangerang of environment sustainability. The tagline ‘The Harmony Of Healthy Living’ influences the design and architecture. With a design that is well developed and which has also maximized the potential of sources of water. The presences of water naturally cools the ambient temperature. By adding surrounding vegetation the combination of water flow and trees have creating a circulating current cool of air which improves air quality and is good for the region. A large opening in the facade of the houses has the dual purpose of improving air circulation and providing excellent natural lighting.

Through Solaris’ unique design, it aims to inspire creativity, integrate with nature and the one-north community while encouraging business and social interactivity. Given the curvilinear design of the building, one of the challenges was to ensure maximum efficiency

of the floor plates and retain open interactive spaces with the surrounding landscape. This is achieved through a spiraling landscape ramp that wraps the building and connects with the landscape on the ground floor. The eco-friendly building taps into natural resources while minimizing the solar heat generated into office spaces. Solaris has achieved this by orientating the building based on the sun’s path, skylight louvre and the use of an intelligent building management system which automatically controls and monitors the building’s environment, allowing natural ventilation when necessary. Rooftop gardens and vertical landscaping also reduce solar heat gain and harmonise with the surrounding environment.

 H  an interior design and renovation company. It aims to put a smile on your space, bringing together a rare fusion of skill and passion to every project undertaken and offering highquality, cost-effective services to commercial and residential clients across Singapore. Established in 2012, it evolved from a small team of four to a staff strength of 90, and is still growing. The company has also expanded to Malaysia and started its own carpentry operations, offering better quality control in the fabrication process. The company is focused on providing premium personalized design services. Its diverse and experienced talent pool is committed to building strong bonds with clientele, by providing affordable, reliable and cost-effective solutions. Its vision is that a workplace and environment should be a source of inspiration for its occupants, as a space devoid of life and energy saps the spirit of its inhabitants.

EuroChem Agro, a leading global agrochemicals enterprise, commissioned Urban Habitat to undertake its office interior design, including a breakout area, conference room, director’s room, pantry, furnishings and bespoke furniture. With the improvement of technology and the hectic pace of work in Singapore, an increasing number of offices have changed by adapting to new trends that offer more flexibility, such as a surge in setting up home offices. The office environment was designed to be a place where everyone felt a sense of belonging as if they were working at home. Urban Habitat wanted to create a balance between visual harmony and work efficiency – to inspire creativity, giving everyone the freedom to think, work and relax. As the client was a global enterprise, it was important to design a space that encouraged interaction between staff of different nationality and to promote cultural exchange,

in order to enhance teamwork and cohesion. The workspace also required flexibility to be able to accommodate changes in facilities, structure and manpower at minimum cost and disruption. Moving on to a residential interior, Urban Habitat was commissioned by The Chelsea Clinic, one of Singapore’s largest groups of wellness clinics, focusing on a holistic approach to personal well-being. With the majority of the clinic’s patients aged between 25-40 years old, the company aimed to provide a sophisticated, luxurious space and comfortable environment to meet customers’ expectations, while at the same time creating a timeless design, which would suit all styles and tastes.

Challenges included the rigid structures and constraints of the existing 104.23m site while creating a design that maintained functionality. The design concept aimed to ‘break the rigid shape.’ The overall concept for the clinic was to bring fluidity and flow into the space. The contoured wall expression in the clinic was aimed to enhance visual interest, and with flowing structural forms at the entrance this blended perfectly with existing structural forms. Materials used included Markham oak light flooring and black glass. Adding to this, the company proposed an MDF board to create a moving protruding in-out effect to bring out the fluidity and dynamism of the workspace.

 Z A Architectural Engineering Design is an award winning company based in China that has been successful with the three following projects. The architectural design of CFC Chang-fu Centre in downtown Futian, Shenzhen takes the form of a square high-rise tower and a circle. These shapes both echo with Chinese culture and prove highly practical. As a multifunctional complex, it will be a popular urban cultural place for the public and a landmark development for the Bonded Area and Shenzhen in the new century. Comparable to buildings in Hong Kong, the development is modern and clean and clearly sets out the division of property rights between the Bonded Area and Yangfu Industrial. The new tower stands 311.6 metres high and, by its various layers, aims to reflect

the transition from the earth to the sky. Seen from a distance, the daylight accentuates the tall, slim outline of the tower while at night with its roof-top exhibition hall and restaurants shining, the tower resembles a lighthouse. As the commanding height and visual centre of Guiyang International Convention and Exhibition Centre, 201 Tower elevates 10 office units to a heady 36 metres high. Breaking away from the dull shape of most existing offices and averting the traditional layout of separation between the inside and outside, the new structural system greatly frees up the available office space. The office unit combines with the tower’s aerial garden, integrating both freely. In addition, with the office units spiraling upwards and the building towering into the clouds, its

design exemplifies the vigorous dynamics of Jinyang New District and the economy of the Convention and Exhibition Centre. Standing at 201 metres high, the tower is the first super-tall building to use a concrete filled steel tube column frame – steel shotcrete – steel truss suspension system. Backed up by comprehensive scientific analysis, 201 Tower is the first example of this method of construction in China and the tallest in the world. It is an exceptional design combining both architectural and technological aesthetics. Inner Lake Park in Shenzhen Bay was once part of a vast ocean; now, after land reclamation, it is the largest part of a vast ocean urban green space in Houhai. Inner Lake Park is famous for the Shenzhen F1 Powerboat World Championship held here annually since

2007 but people’s perception of the park was limited to that event. The rest of the time it is closed. With the ongoing urban development as well as the 15-kilometre coastal belt of Shenzhen Bay opening to the public, Inner Lake Park needed to be revitalized. Shen Zhen Aube’s vision was for it to become a central park for Houhai; a verdant and beautiful park where children can play, elders can stroll, and every citizen can find a place to enjoy. Its landscape design adopts three major strategies, ‘fluidity’, ‘boundary’ and ‘elasticity’ on the basis of the site. This highlights the abstract ‘flowing’ spirit of the ocean: flowing across the park and then converging into the city. Through separating, incising and reorganizing the boundary inside and outside the park, it achieves a vague bond between the city, park and water.

 C is the leading developer of integrated urban townships and the number one Business Process and Outsourcing (BPO) office landlord and developer in the Philippines today. It is present in more than 45 countries in Europe, the Middle East, North America and Asia Pacific, and is poised to expand and reach more regions across the globe. The company has the widest range of home and condominium projects in the country, making it the supermarket of homes. It prides itself on not just offering a home, but giving a complete ‘live-work-play-learn’ lifestyle, which has been its guiding philosophy since the late 1990s. Megaworld’s communities have always been regarded as some of the most well-planned, well-designed and well-developed in the country – providing the very essence of ‘the

good life’. Its integrated townships provide not only the comfort and convenience that residents need, but also additional perks. Megaworld has earned the distinction of being the country’s largest residential condominium developer on top of being the country’s top business processing outsourcing (BPO) office developer and landlord. Eastwood City was the first successful development in Megaworld’s roster of 15 largescale mixed-use townships. Hailed as the first cyber park in the Philippines, Eastwood City has 18.5 hectares of residential condominiums, office buildings, learning centres, malls, and leisure and dining facilities. Its 19 luxury condominium residential towers house some 25,000 residents, its 10 top-class corporate offices accommodate some 70,000 workers and it has three malls with over 500 commercial and retail tenants.

Megaworld launched Eastwood City in 1997, the time when the Asian financial crisis was in play. Doomsayers proclaimed that the decision to put up a financial and residential district was untimely, but they couldn’t have been more wrong. It is now home to such big names as Citibank, IBM and Accenture. Located in Libis, Quezon City, Eastwood City is bordered by the Marikina River to the northeast, Eulogio Rodriguez Jr. Avenue and Acropolis Village to the southwest and other commercial and residential areas of Bagumbayan in the southeast. The Philippine Economic Zone Authority listed Eastwood City as an approved IT Centre which is eligible for temporary tax holidays and a permanent reduced rate of corporate income tax – this makes it popular with the BPO industry. Eastwood City hosts three main commercial developments, Eastwood Mall, which houses

several international clothing brands, Citywalk, which consists of strips of casual and fine-dining restaurants and Cybermall, which provides additional food and beverage outlets for employees working in BPOs and call centres. Today, Eastwood City serves as a template for Megaworld in building future townships that are environmentally sustainable and offer maximised land usage. In Eastwood City everything is just a short walk away, helping residents to reduce their carbon footprint. Further boosting Eastwood City’s sustainable persona, Megaworld has collaborated with the Philippine arm of the World Wide Fund for Nature to celebrate Earth Hour in the township. This is an annual global movement in which individuals, families and businesses are encouraged to switch off their lights for one hour as a symbolic way of remember our ecological footprint.

  Beijing Guorui Real Estate Development, Guorui Alter Villa is located in the northeast suburb of Beijing, at the convergence of two rivers. The high-end residential community is comprised of 51 villas, inspired by the beautiful landscape of the surrounding site. The architect has created this community as pieces of sculpture scattered along the riverside. Each villa is like a piece of art which is not only unique in design, but also reflects the owner’s taste. Moreover, the villas are not isolated but delicately designed and connected to create a harmonious rhythm within the community. Beijing Guoriu believes that a villa can be more than a boring three-storey cubic box. At Alter Villa, every single floor of the building is twisted like a magic cube making it hugely

versatile. The homes feature a high ceiling design – from three metres in the basement to four metres on the ground floor and 3.1 metres on the second and third levels. Furthermore, each villa is designed with a special feature such as a bay window, balcony, canopy or terrace. Thus, the prototype is also extremely avant-garde and characteristic. Roof top gardens feature solar panels, al fresco dining areas and even a mini-putting green for golfers. A combination of community and individual house security is provided including video intercom, a comprehensive security system with functions such as video call, burglar, fire and gas alarms, lift control, access card control and surveillance cameras. Villas are also fitted with intelligent home control systems covering lights, curtains, music, temperature and underfloor heating.

While all the villas are meticulously designed to be different from one another, there is a sense of harmony throughout the whole community that makes it pleasant to the eye. Designers have adopted a series of methods to achieve this anamorphism effect, such as the use of a portfolio of marble for the villas’ aesthetics, a combination of green spaces within the community and façades in a mixture of different stones. This creates a sense of continuation of both texture and colour while the view changes along each walking path, creating a journey full of surprises at Alter Villa. By combining interior and exterior space and undulating elements, Beijing Guoriu has maximized the use of land and space to provide a better living experience. Highlighted features include distinctive landscaping such as a

centralized open parking system and a pavilion with a glorious garden view. The parking space is an earth-covered structure, right above which is the 23,000m central garden. Within the garden is a cascade, grassland, wetland, cavern-style view lounge, flower garden where residents can host wedding ceremonies or host small gatherings such as a concert. Upon arrival home, residents are greeted by the most beautiful scenic picture which unveils before them from the entrance. A riverside boulevard, manor-style entrance, tree-lined boulevard, open parking space and a central garden all unfold and are a joy to behold. While walking from their parking space to their villa, residents can enjoy views of the central park along the way as a transition from the bustling world to the peace and tranquility of their own harbour home.

What’s more, the tower showcases office spaces and services of global standards, all equipped with numerous features required to conduct important meetings from the comfort of your home. The project is also home to various recreational activities for all ages. Located in Andheri, which was originally an industrial and commercial district, but is now being redeveloped into an upcoming suburb in the city of Mumbai, the Group took up the challenge of creating a unique development that would complement the area’s future potential. The idea behind the project’s progressive design was to add a unique highrise to the urban development of Mumbai. Therefore, in a city where rectangular shapes dominate the landscape, Transcon Triumph’s

‘X’ shaped plan stands out, not only in its form but also in the way it promotes views and ventilation for the residences. Transcon Triumph follows the Group’s motto of ‘less is more’, emphasizing on the function of living and common spaces that are filled with light and cross ventilation. Furthermore, the aquamarine view of the sea on one side adds to the quiet, calm atmosphere of the surrounding residential area, while the Western Express Highway on the other side aids easy access to the rest of the city. Transcon Triumph is also strategically located just 100 metres away from the commercial link road that connects to three different shopping malls and two cinema multiplexes. The high pace of development and growth has made Andheri the city’s new core and Transcon Triumph will stand proudly at its heart, providing superior 21st century lifestyle to its residents.

narc Design was founded in Hong Kong in 1988 to provide quality interior design and architectural design consultancy services. The first of the company’s two award-winning projects involved a commission to provide the architectural and interior design for an approximately 1,500m, three-level residence in Beijing, China. The Municipal Government of Beijing had stipulated that the existing dilapidated residence be replaced by a quality building in a classic European architectural style. Respecting this, Inarc Design perfectly matched the client’s brief for a large, extremely comfortable home for himself, his wife and their two teenage children. Spacious formal areas were also created for entertaining business associates and friends. However, the client’s key goal of

The Derby Lounge, China

providing privacy and security between the family’s living spaces and entertainment areas has been successfully achieved. Inarc Design’s client for its award-winning leisure interior was The Hong Kong Jockey Club. The brief called for the complete demolition of an existing venue called the ‘Derby Bar’ in the basement of the clubhouse. The area was then to be redeveloped into two entertainment venues named ‘The Melody and Derby Lounges’ for members and their guests. Two visually distinct yet interconnected venues were created for both ease of service and guests’ convenience. Each venue is acoustically isolated and offers different moods, while complementing the architectural philosophy of this well-known clubhouse, originally designed by Inarc Design in 2004.

Complementing the resplendent setting, contemporary lamps in black and white, expansive LED cove lights seamlessly linked the different areas within the home. A cascade of mirror panels from the hanging light in the dining room create the perfect ambience for impressing distinguished guests or simply to relax and spend time with family. To infuse colour and vibrancy in the setting, colourful paintings were placed strategically around the home. In addition sculptures and decorative vases were used to add luxury and refinement. Floor-to-ceilings windows were also used to showcase the sweeping views of Marina Bay.

 D  one of the fastest growing design firms based in Bangkok. It was founded in 2005 by Niratt Potitan and specialises in interior design projects for hotels, resorts, high-end residential, apartments and corporate offices. The award-winning design of Plaza Athenee, a Royal Meridien Hotel, stemmed from the lifestyle and historical palace of H.R.H. Princess Valaya Alongkorn, the 43rd daughter of King Rama V. She was well known for her aesthetic skills in the fields of Thai-European interior decoration, fashion, bouquet making and also in intellectual fields such as book collecting and chess playing. Therefore, Niratt Designs’ goal is to bring back the Thai-Colonial style that the Princess

would have known during her lifetime. At the same time the design concept has been combined with the modern world to define ‘Thai Transitional Luxury’. As guests arrive at the hotel they are able to sense the air of Thai traditional nobility from an era when exquisite luxurious contemporary design blended with traditional Thai characteristics. This created one of the most influential design aspects through the history of Thailand. The design for Royal Club guestrooms and suites is influenced by Thai Royal ceremonies that took place in the Royal palace while Athenee guestrooms and suites represent the summer palace. Carefully selected colour palettes, artwork and Thai panels all result in an extremely impressive hotel interior concept.

Design is community-driven, with traditional living meeting a modern structure in an X-shape. The design is planned to form a neighbourhood within the building itself, allowing residents to extend their living beyond just the four corners of their units. Glass walls in the kitchen offer a view of the whole corridor, which means occupants can get to know their neighbours.

TWY also features the very first wetland ecosystem within a high-rise residential development, which consists not only of trees but other local flora and fauna. Themed as an ‘introduction of life to the city’ the floating podium on the 7th level features a self-cleaning pond where water plants oxygenate other water features around them – and all this in close proximity to the pool area so that residents can really embrace nature. Surrounding this podium are floating decks, suspended hammocks and even a hanging gym. The goal of the project is to nurture a sense of community between residents and to foster a healthy balance between the hustle and bustle of urban life and a natural, comfortable home.

All aspects of the company’s designs are balanced between utility, efficiency and aesthetics. The Marhaba Restaurant in Publika is rooted in Yemeni fine dining cuisine and so the client’s brief was to keep the look and feel elegant and royal. Hints of mystery and romance were also to befit it being the first Yemeni fine dining establishment in Malaysia. Therefore, the regal colours of purple and gold were selected and complemented by dark brown wood panels and rustic eight-pointed stars. Fine finishing and refined details influence the senses and create people’s attitude towards

their surroundings. Today, stepping into the Marhaba Restaurant immediately removes diners from the hectic buzz of daily life into an exotic-romantic ambience that pays tribute to the great Yemeni culture and history. They immediately find themselves walking through a pathway that mimics narrow walkways between marketplaces, sandwiched by cosy cubicles of the ‘Madras’. It takes innovation and brilliant creative minds to transform a walled room into a beautiful and decorative space where diners experience fine food in a room filled with sensory possibilities.

As they continue the expansion, their 7,000 sq ft headquarters in Singapore underwent a massive renovation to accommodate future growth and their increasing headcount. In coming up with a new look for the headquarters, the group adopted the concept of a ‘design journey’. It’s a spatial narration which symbolises the creative team’s design process from raw ideas to fruition. As such, the back of office looks somewhat bare with the use of raw finishes, open ceiling and raw flooring.

As the design process comes to a conclusion, the journey ends with a more sophisticated and fully furnished look. The front of house and boardroom areas are fitted with polished surfaces such as steel and glass to show how these ideas were completed. Being an advocate for smart workspace, the designers also took into consideration the use of fixtures, furnishings and materials that are in line with the sustainable office practices. Use of technology such as heat photo cell sensors were used to optimise energy usage. With the design and functionality in mind, the revamped look for the DB&B office is a vibrant and compelling multi-faceted workspace that takes everyone on a journey that triggers imagination, personal interactions and a novel sense of discovery.

Therefore, SDG has designed cellars to store and preserve his precious wines and provide a relaxing area for tasting sessions.

The upper floor is a comfortable and stylish living space for the family of four. Tastefully furnished with simple decorative elements, it gives a sense of purity. The design concept for the lower level is ‘red wine’ and has been inspired by wine cellars based in caves or mines. Natural rock, stone and wooden structures as seen in underground excavations, weak lighting and a touch of green have all combined perfectly within this 300 square foot wine cellar. As a connection between the two floors and their totally different themes, a full height, eight metre wall features a special living material in the form of green moss tiles. The result is a remarkable, elegant and high-end environment with distinct areas for family living and guest activities.

T A C., L created an exceptional yet functional house for a family of three by using reusable materials from the previous house after it had been torn down. The design was inspired by a desire to engage with the landscape and to celebrate the existing trees within the area. The architectural design prioritised reducing energy usage, the use of natural lighting and cross ventilation. Sustainability is an important element and the house is organised on two levels, which are integrated into the external landscape. The majority of rooms face south and are properly shaded by the geometry of the balconies and louvres to receive natural wind and avoid heat gain. Natural and stack-effect ventilation allows natural cooling of the house.

Along with the usual array of rooms, such as reception and living areas, bedrooms and a study, a meditation area and Koi pond is also included. The 735 m plot was conceived as a response to the context, sun, views, program established by the client and the idea of interacting with nature and the landscape. When walking through the house entrance, residents will gradually discover a mixture of light and transparency, with expansive glazing opening the house up to the views. The living and dining areas have floorto-ceiling sliding glass doors and a generous ceiling height, which allows the garden to flow uninterrupted to the living space. Residential living does not get more peaceful than this.

  , The Orange Lane is a design company that has won several awards including two for the following projects. Sagar Villa in Mumbai is a luxurious apartment with a central entrance lobby that seamlessly divides the space into three sections: private, semi private and service. The client is a landscape designer and so a few characteristics of his own personal style were implemented by the designer. Hence the feel of the home is unconventionally ethnic, green and fluid – a blend of the client’s taste meeting the designer’s signature style. This is a home where tradition, art and innovation reside, perfectly reflected by The Orange Lane’s interior design.

The Brooklyn Shuffle in Pune is a bar and diner in a traditional building with sloping roofs and double heights. The client’s brief was to create a fresh space to attract a young clientele with a light and open interior. Its outdoor area resembles a patio with marble top tables, a floor to ceiling library with wire mesh hiding the memorabilia and surfboards in a sandpit. The ground floor has mismatched wooden chairs, retrostyled sofas and leather tables, lending a modern eclectic tribute to an American diner. The two bars feature ceramic tiles with Nirvana baby graphics printed on them while old Parsi railing, baseball bats, Coca-Cola ice boxes and Campbell’s soup tins all complement the ‘diner’ ambience.

It is also the first to achieve international Grade A standards within luxury building development and the first commercial property to receive a LEED silver certification. Vattanac Properties Limited was looking to develop an iconic building that serves as a symbol for the future economic development of Cambodia and to inspire younger generations to reach new heights in their own personal development and that of their wider community. The architects took inspiration from Cambodia’s long-established traditions and

icons, designing the building in the shape of a Naga – a mythical creature in the Cambodian culture. A mix of dragon and snake, the Naga can be seen to influence shape and form. In particular a spine cocoons the building and the glass tower design is reminiscent of a scaled skin. In addition the façade design also provides natural shading devices, serving a larger environmental and energy–saving purpose. Vattanac Capital Towers has evolved into a sophisticated mixed-use property that accommodates a luxury retail mall, top-class office space, a five-star hotel, and a sky deck with a 20-metre cantilevered private bar and deck offering an astounding bird’s eye view of Phnom Penh.

The museum was designed to mimic the shape of a watch dial. In the lounge, heavy, imposing tufted couches invite you to sit and never leave. Dark curtains were added for increased privacy as guests were introduced to individual watches while partaking in drinks and hors d’oeuvres. In the dining area, solid wood seating and chandeliers were chosen to follow the Art Deco aesthetic of the space. Others features included Versace wallpaper, white marble and dark oak panelling.

parking which are connected by a bridge. Decks on each floor were designed to be semi-outdoors and are enclosed by safety-glass balustrades for a clear panoramic view. SCG is an environmentally friendly and sustainable construction. The building’s energy consumption was reduced through the use of a shaded design, which prevents heat and glare from the sun. Insulated glass reduces heat entering the building and also the energy consumption of air conditioning units. Decking used artificial PVC planks or Forest Stewardship Council approved wood. Tiles were made using 60 per cent recycled materials while LED lighting could save about 30 per cent in energy per year.

The company has built a condominium project on government land that consists of three conservation buildings which are to be restored and reused. One is an original school building dating back to 1941 (Nan Hua School) which has been designated a childcare centre and kindergarten. Trinity Theological College Chapel is to be converted into a restaurant, and the Olson Building of The Methodist Girls’ School will be reused as a clubhouse and gym for the development.

The condominium area is 35,000m and will be built in blocks around the newly restored buildings. These blocks are designed as low to mid-rise buildings of three to seven storeys. The shape and hilly terrain of the site was a challenge to the design process as well as conservation guidelines stipulating building height limits. The company wanted to create a condominium that would become a unified development with a coherent language and used terracotta and recycled clay roof tiles from the old buildings. The culturally rich site, known as Sophia Hills, is located in one of the oldest habited areas of Singapore, with records dating back to 1823. It includes Mount Emily, Mount Sophia and Wilkie Road.

ADAH C is a firm of motivated architects, designers and thinkers. It works on projects of various scales, from large developments, medium-scale residential properties to compact dwelling spaces. TADAH’s office is a reflection of its vision and so when creating its interior design, the aim was to create a collaborative working culture that would foster great creativity. A flexibility to transform space into a friendly, mixed-used environment was key to realising the design in an area of 150.51m. To express each space’s use, four distinct zones were created: a bright whitish pantry/ gallery to give a welcoming approach, a super dark meeting room to express a professional ambience, a warm plywood-clad workspace to offer a cosy feel and a deep

charcoal library to create a calming, peaceful environment. By placing the meeting room, commonly found inactive, in the central area, installed along two sides with panels that can be configured in different ways, it seamlessly connects the entire office. Serving as an extended discussion area, everyone can move around to collaborate without having an assigned seat. The pantry, meeting room table, discussion table, workstation, couch and coffee tables were carefully designed and crafted to blend with predominant materials and colours in each area. Mirror-clad wall cabinets store office files and also makes the office appear more spacious. TADAH’s meticulous attention to detail has demonstrated quality and exclusivity throughout this project’s design.

The area will become a community neighbourhood suitable for families. Retail and communal facilities, car parking, green spaces are provided and there is also an exhibition hub. Using sunlight analysis software, a zigzagging orientation of the building blocks

was found to maximize daylight exposure for each dwelling. This is important in northwest China due to its climatic extremes of hot summers and cold winters. L&O also designed Xing Long International Plaza in Dongcheng District, the eastern half of Beijing’s urban core. A challenging requirement was to build while maintaining the current sunlight hours for the existing residential community to the east of the site. L&O identified sunlight corridors with the help of sunlight analysis software. Locally-made terracotta panels were used for the ribbon-like facades while grey was chosen for the building as a tribute to the brick architecture characteristic of traditional Beijing.

Its award-winning project, The Gardenia in Kowloon, Hong Kong is a perfect example of this principle. An urban oasis blending harmoniously with the old neighbourhood and mountains, the 38-storey residential building features the stylish design of a boutique hotel. The client’s brief was for KES to create interiors to suit young couples and single people who enjoy the convenience of city living. Therefore, the resulting design highlights a sense of simplicity and harmony with nature through light grey and beige tones accented with a touch of bronze.

The symphony of style, elegance and simplicity injects a new vigor to the community, redefining a sophisticated lifestyle inspired by nature. A huge cloud-like chandelier hovering over the lobby and decorative flying butterflies in the ballroom further bring natural beauty indoors. KES also took full advantage of geographical factors to offer residents an amazing view. By incorporating expansive windows, vistas of the nearby mountains and lush green landscapes are brought indoors. The boutique hotel design highlights a sense of simplicity and harmony with nature forming a one-of-a-kind urban oasis which provides residents with a relaxing hideaway.

Highly influenced by local art and culture, ONE’s designs are contextual and distinctly different. Indochina Villas Saigon is a boutique waterfront residential project in Ho Chi Minh City developed by Indochina Land, Vietnam’s premier development company. ONE, as the winner of a competition to transform the site, was commissioned to give the residential development a resort feel. A great part of ONE’s key concept for the project was to find a cultural link with Vietnam’s agricultural landscape dominated by rice fields. This resulted in the use of various

forms and scales of paddy fields as a macro scale approach while the shape of rice became the micro integration of the theme. Arranged in random and articulated formats, the translucency of rice has been captured through light and shadow. The view of the lake from the Club Pool plays a major role in providing a resort feel to the development and so ONE has designed a barbecue deck hovering over the lake and jetty. The lake also has a feature fountain inspired by the lotus flower and intended for children’s play. Due to Vietnam’s tropical climate, shadeproducing trees were planted to provide comfortable walkways and seating areas. Specific plant species common to Ho Chi Min City were also chosen to avoid the need for special irrigation systems.

Like nature, every element interacts with each other and keeps changing. Homeowners can also personalize their living space to their own style – hence the name, Indefinite. The project is in a most desirable residential area of Taipei City. The aim of client is to provide a large living space for each residence despite the entire construction having a footprint of only 827.58m. The client also wanted the first floor to accommodate

administrators, security guards, reception desk, a lobby and recreation area. The final design has a total of four residential units with private entrances and are laid out to be completely separate from each other. In the traditional Chinese culture, young families need to take care of and to live with their parents; however, the young generation has followed the modern western trend for a nuclear family living style. Respecting this, the architect has designed two floors with two individual living spaces per unit - one on top, the other at the bottom. The dining room is where the two living spaces are interconnected. This design accommodated the traditional Chinese culture while still providing independence and privacy.

PTang Studio has also designed the interiors of House 12, De Yucca with a daring brief to go for a darker style. Entering the home, your eyes adjust to the dramatic space where a dark purple wall and beige leather wall form great texture. In the rooms, dark and graphicdesigned walls contrast starkly against the tan wooden flooring. An oriental influence is applied to the bedroom design, with a Chinese ink painting made on a silk panel. The company also designed the retail interior of the Bounty Entertainment & Sports Bar, totalling 3,200 square feet and located in Discovery Bay, Lantau Island. The designers wove the concept of yachting into the design, with wall panelling in the style of adjustable paddles, recreating a sense of ocean movement.

The company took on a unique project in Yuen Long District, located in the north-west territories – a district with the youngest population in Hong Kong. The exterior house design was requested to find a breakthrough from the traditional idea of a village home; the client wanted it to look futuristic, contemporary and express the idea of levitation. Along with a curved side walls, the overall design embraced the concepts of transparency and the idea of floating. For the interior design the main concept was to accentuate the property’s elegant design with a

light colour scheme to generate airy soothing scenery inside the house. Environmental protection and energysaving were prioritised during the build and design. The company used rainwater harvesting, cross ventilation and passive solar control devices as well as incorporating a hydroponic wall. To enhance energy-saving and increase privacy, an aluminium louvre shelter was designed and hung on to the exterior wall as a suspended element. This helps to prevent excessive sunlight from entering the house. The building complemented the fact that the site is surrounded by fish ponds, wetland and greenfield sites. This resulted in many natural materials being used in the design, such as limestone, wooden panels and grass flooring.

Starting from the entrance the company has used natural grey marble flooring with a borderline and an earth-tone carpet to distinguish the different layers and composition of the interior.

A five-metre chandelier was chosen to hang as a central highlight in the space and become the focal point for the house in the dining area, which has an unconventional and dramatically high ceiling. Light reflects between the glass and stainless steel fittings and fixtures and creates a sophisticated yet humble mood. Once you enter the living room, visitors are greeted by fine grey marble flooring with embedded borderlines. The adjacent family room is separated by timber flooring that offers the perfect venue for comfort and intimate chats. Artworks and fish tanks were also integrated into the ambience of the spaces as well as materials of rich dark veneer and grey cloth, which were chosen to emit a sense of beauty, comfort and luxury.

The company’s award-winning design concept for The Bistro in Hong Kong demanded space planning to be the key element. The high cost per square metre in this highly commercial district means that every customer’s order is crucial. The Bistro therefore had to be capable of maximum capacity without creating a crowded atmosphere. Traditional bistro elements were kept to offer a feeling of dining at home. Yellow lamps and raw, dark wood have created a timeless, relaxing environment that allows customers to

leave rush hours and work schedules behind. At the same time, as modern bistros opt for a more simplistic approach, customers are offered a bright and spacious environment to dine for business and pleasure. Functional fixtures such as the kitchen, bar, cash desk, menu stand and serving cabinet are all vital elements. However, clever placement has hidden them where they are all easy to reach to maintain efficiency yet keep the dining area looking neat. Tables are lined up side-by-side making them suitable for larger groups where they can be joined together easily. As some customers may face inwards, walls have been decorated with mirrors, giving a false depth of space and a better view of the room.

It features 30 units of semi-detached corporate factories and is highly visible from the Shah Alam Expressway. Prime is infused with modern architecture that incorporates a clean and contemporary design façade. Emphasis was given in the design of the façade to create both a corporate and industrial appearance with its crafted integration of glass and metal cladding. As land was limited, each unit offers 3.5 storeys to offset this major challenge. The main goal for Prime is to achieve ‘Allin-One’ use by effectively integrating a full glass frontage showroom, corporate offices, warehouse and light industrial use in each unit.

This has resulted in a specific design which allows for a flexible floor layout and spacious built-up areas, essential elements for All-inOne businesses. Most of the factories adjacent to Prime in the Axis Industrial Park are detached factories, thus the project is one of few offering smaller, semi-detached factory units within this vicinity. Furthermore, the development consists of a perimeter planting ‘green belt’ surrounding it together with a green area within the project. Currently, the units in Prime are 100% sold, mostly to SMEs, light industrial and logistic companies. This proves that Peridot Development has reached and satisfied all requirements of the project’s intended target market.

On the bar counter, a crystal pendant light extends downwards in the form of a whirlpool while a careful selection of materials, such as marble, keeps an air of nobility.

Inspired by life, ZERO9 generates a sense of opulence in every design project it undertakes. With the architectural design of ‘Weekend Home’, the process started with meticulous planning to incorporate six well-established trees. Two palms became part of the front open space while the mango tree has retro-fit outdoor seating beneath it, recalling the client’s memories of their ancestral home.

Another palm was accommodated alongside the indoor jacuzzi which is open to the sky to allow its natural growth. The fifth palm was wrapped around by a pergola above the verandah, beautifully framing its verticality. The sixth palm, the tallest of all, gave ZERO9 an opportunity to let it pass through the bar counter in the living room, through to the master bedroom and out into the sun, enabling it to be seen from the master bathroom’s skylight. The living room extends innovatively simply by sliding the windows; one side provides access to the verandah and the other to the open-roofed jacuzzi area. Taking advantage of natural light was also a major design consideration for this beautiful weekend retreat on the outskirts of Daman.

Over the last four decades the company has designed a number of prestigious projects in India and overseas, all of which have been widely acclaimed. Residence at Alibag is in the midst of a deeply forested site and so Malik Architecture carried out a careful mapping of the area to identify ‘bald’ spots prior to construction. Any tree with a trunk diameter measuring four inches and above was retained and the building program was carefully divided into distinct zones and sensitively inserted into the vacant areas. Some trees were also incorporated into the structure of the building.

The design for the house has been inspired by traditional Konkan construction techniques and captures the sense of floating among the trees. This is a home that respects nature, the climate and surrounding community but with all the luxuries that contemporary technology has to offer. A strong presence of water and an exploration of its moods features throughout the home and is even integrated into its gym and home theatre spaces. The client has a wife and three married offspring, all with children. Therefore a network of spaces has been developed to allow individual privacy while most importantly encouraging constant overlapping through common areas and circulation zones for family time.

The company offers innovative design through its talented team to accomplish the whole project from concept to completion. When commissioned to create a concept for the interiors of Millward Brown Firefly Ltd, Bangkok Office, SS had to integrate three important elements – design, performance and environment. The client’s brief required flexibility for future growth, multipurpose spaces, focus group rooms, viewing rooms, meeting rooms and phone booths. Additionally, as the new office is 16% smaller than the former one, SS had to ensure that every single space was functional. Allowing for

expansion over the years, staff numbers can be increased by up to 21% without having any adverse affect on the design base. SS adopted an ‘activity-based working concept’ for the new offices where no one is assigned a permanent seat, except for the financial and HR teams. All enclosed and open spaces are shared and many meeting pods and phone booths are provided. By taking a holistic approach, combining behaviour, energy, quality of space and design, SS has given added value beyond physical office features. The focus is on spatial quality atmosphere centralised around communication, natural daylight, informal areas and intimate space. Furthermore, 80% of the materials used are green products for sustainability and a healthy workplace.

 L D Ltd (FLDL) was established in 2004 and has since earned a reputation as one of Asia’s most respected and renowned design companies. Clients’ visions are incorporated and developed into spatial transformations through the firm’s integrated disciplines, technology and planning. At FLDL, the sole purpose for every thought, strategy and action is ‘ defining space and refining living’. The company’s award-winning design for the LVGEM Sinus Iridum Sales Office in Shenzhen, China involves the key concept and use of ‘line’. As line is a free-form element in design it has constituted many different dynamic effects throughout the 1,625m sales office.

By the use of the line intensity through its speed and direction, it enables the whole area to have different visual effects. As an example, the curved ceiling line has been used to show stunning moon and mountain patterns, while a pit wall resembles a meteorite falling out of the pit – this is to symbolize Sinus Iridum, a lava plain that is one of the moon’s loveliest and most distinctive features. Complemented by a high background wall which connects the ceiling shape, this element also becomes as one with the lighting effects in the ‘sky’ like a movement trajectory. Dazzling white marble is used for the flooring and wall of visual effects to add both strength and shape to the overall design.

Group M

AZE    believer in innovation with part of the award-winning company’s success being due to its ability to reimagine and reinvent local materials. Liberty Citypoint Hotel in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam is the third hotel designed by the KAZE team. The client’s brief was for a 170 room, 24-level building with an architectural façade and interior design that follows Liberty’s high standards of city hotels. The challenge, apart from a tight schedule, was to change the inner and outer building from an office layout to a city hotel. As KAZE has Nordic roots, it wanted to create a ‘tree of life’, symbolizing a pocket in the city where

guests can find shelter and rest. Although materials were limited to stone and wood, KAZE has set each material in motion to make it alive and vital to the hotel’s main concept. KAZE was also commissioned by Group M, an international media organisation, to design its latest office in Ho Chi Minh City. Due to the oval shape of the 3.5 levels within the chosen iconic Bitexco Financial Tower, KAZE designed all inner forms to flow with the basic shape to increase efficiency per m. A ‘web spine’ of dynamic lines has been created to symbolise the constant interaction between occupants, while Russian birch plywood throughout gives a modern, unpretentious and progressive look.

 L  been creating innovative property and infrastructure solutions for more than 50 years. The company has won multiple awards for ‘Jem’, the first mixeduse development in the heart of Jurong Gateway precinct. It comprises a 12-storey office tower and the third largest suburban mall in Singapore. Realised through Lend Lease’s close collaboration with the Urban Redevelopment Authority, it helps to pioneer and lead the transformation of Jurong Gateway into the largest commercial hub outside the CBD. Jem offers over 108,000m of retail and commercial space and is home to 241 retailers ranging from international to local brands. It uses a high performance building envelope and a large floor plate design to reduce the heat impact of the afternoon sun on the façade.

The office ground level comprises a main entry lobby with a drive through dedicated to the commercial building. Modern open concept workstations, breakout meeting areas and smaller typical meeting rooms have been set up to encourage staff interaction while providing privacy where required. A 12-storey tall atrium void promotes vertical connection and movement via interconnecting stairs to different levels. Jem also incorporates more than 100% green replacement back into the building with the creation of Jem Park – a cascading skypark spanning three levels of the development and extensive greenery in the building design. Sky terraces also serve as the building’s ecological and communal heart.
