New, high-end developments are always exciting and so, within this and the two following editions of the magazine, we are including a series of features focusing on those springing up all over London. The idea stemmed from a conversation I had with my MD Stuart Shield earlier this year. While on one of his business trips to the capital, Stuart was intrigued by the increased number of enormous cranes that could be seen in operation. We decided this was well worth following up, resulting in the discovery of a host of newly launched projects as well as those due for completion soon. However, if you prefer more rural surroundings while still enjoying quick and easy access to the buzz of the city, then the Home Counties prove an excellent option (see feature starting on page 89). Our international destinations this issue take in two extremes of climate – those of Switzerland and Dubai. The former is a well-known winter wonderland but the appeal of the country certainly doesn’t end when the snow melts as we find out. As for Dubai, watch this space because alongside extensive new development, the city is aiming to attract 25 million visitors annually by 2025. This would make it the most visited city in the world and be sure to raise property prices accordingly.

ou only have to take a leisurely walk around the capital by day or night to appreciate the vast amount of new projects that are taking shape in prime locations. Take a look behind existing façades and you’ll also discover impressive renovations that are transforming buildings from their former uses, ranging from offices and army barracks to breweries and radio headquarters, into high-end residences. Sara Ransom of Stacks Property Search, says, “Kings Cross, with its international links via St Pancras, has transformed beyond recognition through massive redevelopment including the now iconic Gasholders development and new shopping area. A new residential release is imminent, so off-plan buying in this area could be a shrewd move.” Ms Ransom has noticed that developers are introducing an increasing amount of interesting communal elements into their spaces. “It makes sense to pay a bit more for an apartment in a development that has extras that are valuable to you,” she advises. “Some have communal work spaces that, for the self-employed or occasional working-from-home, can be a godsend. Take your laptop, grab a desk, and ‘go to work’, keeping your apartment free of office vibes.” Chris Osmond, director at Johns & Co, says, “While the super prime new build market – £2,000 per square foot and above – has suffered over the past year, high end new-build in the Zone 1 fringes and into Zone 2 has been more resilient. The particular sweet spot is anywhere between the £850 – £1,100 per square foot point.” Buyers tend to be a 50:50 mix of end user versus international buyers. “End users are London based,” he continues, “some will have rented

in the building and have saved or had help from the bank of mum and dad to upgrade to a purchase. For international investors, taking rental yield, capital appreciation and currency which is still strong against a weakened pound, high-end newbuild is still an attractive investment.” Mr Osmond reports that the most popular locations for high-end new-build tend to be SW8/SW11 (Battersea Power Station/Nine Elms). “Whilst these postcodes have had their fair share of bad press,” he says, “the riverside location, the facilities, the views of London landmarks are second to none and, as such, are a popular place to live. “E14 (Canary Wharf ) is a longstanding winner too. There are 120,000 jobs in the Canary Wharf estate and that is set to almost double in the next decade. Jobs bring people so this is an area that will continue to grow in popularity as a place to live. The Elizabeth line opens at the end of the year, linking the old City at Liverpool Street to Canary Wharf in just two stops – another draw of living in Canary Wharf.”

Kilchoan Estate, Knoydart, Inverness-shire

Described as one of the last great wildernesses on mainland Britain, the Knoydart Peninsula is as unique as it is beautiful

and rugged. Kilchoan Estate occupies over 11,000 acres of this West Highland headland and provides the perfect secluded getaway with spectacular views to the Isle of Skye, Rhum and more Small Isles beyond. Having just been brought to the market, this is a rare opportunity to purchase a quintessential private Scottish estate, boasting exceptional quality country sports. From dramatic brooding mountains, elevated lochs and meandering rivers to sandy beaches and clear coastal waters – the setting of the Estate is truly magical. Situated approximately 55 miles (88km) north west of Fort William and 108 miles (174km) south west of Inverness (the Highland capital), the closest settlement to the property is the village of Inverie, located on the north shore of Loch Nevis and on the north-western boundary of the Estate.

is paying tribute to the master throughout 2019. His original – often startlingly surrealist – imagery made him popular with collectors from the very start, and his reputation was boosted by the incredible depictions of peasant life like Children's Games, The Wedding Dance and The Land of Cockaigne which led to him being called the second Hieronymus Bosch. After the Kunsthistorisches Museum of Vienna (which owns Hunters in the Snow) the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium have the largest collection of Bruegel's paintings. These treasures will be exhibited throughout 2019 while guided walks and animations will transport visitors to 16th century Brussels and to the places linked to Bruegel's life and times.

Interiors-v26 n2.indd 1

14/02/2019 14:20


Be wary of trends

Vanessa Adaken, Neoscene hen designing a high-end kitchen, picture yourself using every feature that you wish to include in the layout. This will ensure that you are making the right aesthetic and functional choices. Include storage - even the sleekest designs can hide storage units, therefore make sure that you have enough kitchen cabinets, shelving, and pantries. While it might be tempting to be as minimalist as possible, it is still important to have extra storage in the kitchen to avoid clutter. Take the backsplash tile to the ceiling, especially when they are only eight feet high. This is common in a lot of older homes. Taking the tile up creates visual height and an especially polished look because you don’t have a break where tile meets drywall (particularly around a window). Moreover, a dramatic backsplash will draw the eye with ease and make an excellent focal point. Be wary of trends - your kitchen is a high traffic area, so try to opt for timeless pieces. Designs and trends evolve and a design piece might look great now but might not be trendy in a few years’ time. Every piece of your kitchen design should have a purpose. This will let you fully optimise the space, using the features as well as enjoying them. While aesthetics will drive your design, remember to keep function in mind.

Using contrasting colours on walls, counters and floors helps with depth perception and provides a clear line of sight when navigating throughout the kitchen, especially in working areas. It will add a huge amount of visual interest to the kitchen. When you’re putting together the colour palette, go with either one neutral shade and one bold colour or choose a warm and cool shade. Additionally, focus either on the contrast on a single item, such as an island, or allow an element to continue throughout the entire space. Consider various options as exploring several design possibilities will help you decide exactly what you are looking for. If you settle on the first counter material you see, for example, you might not know what other materials you could like better.

he kitchen featured here is within a penthouse in Marylebone with stunning views over Regents Park. It truly involved a full transformation as we wanted it to become a focal point rather than just a kitchen. The new kitchen we designed is within the main, open space serving both dining and living room. All appliances are hidden and externally designed in a functional yet beautiful way; almost as if having your own bar at home. We used an antique mirror to visually double up the space and enhance the visual impact creating an experience within the space, antique brushed brass for understated

luxury and luxurious herringbone veneers. We also designed the lighting unit above the bar which was inspired by a pearl earring fully transformed into a pendant light for ambiance and dramatic evening light. The finishing touch was our specially designed liquid bronze mural featuring Marylebone and Regents Park. Âť

Choose custom cabinetry

Magda Gruszczynska, Vis A Vis ost of our clients consider the kitchen very important to their daily family life, therefore, it is crucial to Vis A Vis to design every kitchen to be both functional and beautiful. We start the design process from thinking about the kitchen location and its relation to other rooms like the dining room, living room and entrance hall. The kitchen should be the heart and soul of each property. It is a place where we start our day and say good morning to our loved ones. While designing a kitchen it is also very important to create interesting, appealing and defined kitchen cabinetry design that looks superior from the couch or the dining table. Moreover, we love to challenge the kitchen design by sourcing modern materials that are highly resistant. More and more often, along with specifying reliable kitchen brands like Bulthaup, we provide bespoke kitchen cabinetry to our clients. Going for a bespoke solution gives ourselves and our clients a greater choice in veneer grain and colour, backsplash design and even custom cabinet handles. Our latest award-winning kitchen design in a private residence blends minimalistic kitchen wall cabinets with sophisticated, etched mirror and backlit opaque glass to create a stunning five-metre tall feature wall. This reflects the garden during the day while in the evening brings a relaxing and moody atmosphere, perfect to entertain with friends.

Blast from the past

As Bentley enters its centenary year, the oldest remaining and first racing model – EXP 2 – was displayed at Retromobile recently. Joining its illustrious forebear in Paris was the new Continental GT Convertible. Although separated by 100 years of automotive evolution, the two

models share fundamental Bentley characteristics: both are genuine Grand Tourers offering sectordefining levels of performance with innovative technology at their core. A legacy of the Cricklewood era, EXP 2 is the second Bentley ever to be made, its debut was at the 1919 Olympia Motor Show and is a landmark car in the brand’s history. Drawing influence from W.O. Bentley’s pre-war competition experience – when he pioneered the use of aluminium pistons – EXP 2 is also the brand’s first car to win a race, powered by a 3.0-litre four-cylinder engine with a top speed of 80 mph. Frank Clement, W.O.’s development engineer and racing driver, won the Junior Sprint Handicap at Brooklands in May 1921 in EXP2 – the first recorded racing victory for Bentley.

Restored to former glory

Rolling off the production line in 1973, this original right-hand drive Series 3 Coupe had lived a pampered life but seen better days. It was brought to E-Type UK with a brief to not only perfectly restore but upgrade to the highest standards. The car’s owner was seeking an example that was reliable with some subtle modernisations, improved driving characteristics yet retained that classic E-Type personality. Once all the metal work was repaired to original specifications, a bespoke aluminium bonnet was fabricated to reduce front-end weight. Then, it was time for a concours standard repaint in Opalescent Gunmetal. The original engine was fully rebuilt and fitted with a combination of engine upgrades synonymous with E-Type UK: electronic fuel injection with larger throttle bodies, aluminium radiator and header tank and the all-important 12-branch tubular stainless steel sports exhaust system to allow the V12 to sing. Under that now perfect body, the suspension was

also heavily revised for improved handling and ride.

oodwood has announced that the theme for the 2019 Festival of Speed, which takes place from July 4th to 7th, will be ‘Speed Kings – Motorsport’s Record Breakers’. Motorsport has always been about pushing man and machine to the very limit, and this year, Goodwood will celebrate the people and machinery that set the benchmark or raise the bar. The focus will not just be on the Land Speed Record, but on every area of record breaking in motorsport, from the most consecutive wins, to most championships, fastest laps, most poles set by a manufacturer and many more. This year marks 20 years since Nick Heidfeld took the outright record up the Goodwood Hill, covering the 1.16-mile course in 41.6 seconds at the wheel of a McLaren


MP4/13. In 2018, the electric Volkswagen I.D. R Pikes Peak car came close to taking the crown; 2019 could be the year we celebrate a new record holder.

Simply the best The Peninsula Classics Best of the Best Award is among the top automotive awards in the world. Launched in 2015 and sponsored by The Peninsula Hotels, the annual award brings together eight of the concours circuit’s elite ‘Best of Show’ winners from around the globe. Arguably one of the most desirable cars of all time, the 1937 Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B Berlinetta was revealed at The Peninsula Paris hotel as the winner of the fourth The Peninsula Classics Best of the Best Award. It was the stand-out choice among the judges as the best car in the world. Hailing from Los Angeles, California, the car was entered into the running for the award after being named ‘Best of Show’ at the 2018 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

Freedom of

Clients are not locked into a long-term contract or tied to using a specific aircraft type which means we can help them choose the right jet for their requirements

Steve Huddlestone Chapman Freeborn, Private Jet Charter Manager

he time-saving benefits and versatility of private aviation is what makes it so appealing. Particularly in the case of business travel, clients are able to maximise their efficiency by avoiding busy airport hubs and working to their own schedule. In the case of multi-site visits, for example, it often simply isn’t possible on scheduled services. Chapman Freeborn Airchartering was established in the UK in 1973 and has offices worldwide including North America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia. The company originally specialised in cargo aviation, but it soon expanded into chartering private jets. Steve Huddlestone, Chapman Freeborn’s private jet charter manager, says, “In 1987 we set up the charter operation to support David Bowie’s ‘Glass Spider Tour’ and since then the company has developed a niche expertise managing charter flights for entertainment industry clients. Our clients also include many of the world’s most respected companies from across a spectrum of industries – including financial services, property, manufacturing, and technology. “In recent years the industry has been flooded with start-ups looking to create Uber-type booking platforms for private jets – but we’re very much at the traditional end of the spectrum when it comes to arranging charters for our clients. Clients can email or pick up the phone and ask us for anything. Sometimes that might be a last-minute itinerary change, or arranging to have a particular bottle of wine and catering from their favourite restaurant on board.”

As a charter broker, Chapman Freeborn offers access to a wide range of aircraft types - from small jets for short-hops to large cabin aircraft for international travel. “Clients are not locked into a long-term contract or tied to using a specific aircraft type,” explains Mr Huddlestone, “which means we can help them choose the right jet for their requirements. The same client might want to use a very light jet (VLJ) one week and a long-range heavy jet the next. “For those that want the practicality of flying private, but without the price tag of larger jets, aircraft like Cessna Citation Mustang and the Embraer Phenom 100 are among our most popular models for short flights of up to two hours. VLJs provide a level of flexibility that scheduled services cannot match, combining multiple site visits into a single day. However, VLJs are more about functionality than comfort. “At the other end of the scale, large-cabin, long range aircraft such as the Gulfstream G650 and Dassault Falcon 7X and 8X are popular with our clients for their spacious interiors and state-of-the-art technology. Luxury jets of this calibre allow for non-stop travel on routes like London to Sao Paulo and Paris to Hong Kong.” Chapman Freeborn is able to arrange charters to virtually any airport worldwide. “In the last 12 months we’ve arranged flights to over 800 different destinations across every continent – including Antarctica,” says Mr Huddlestone. “Costs vary significantly and depend on many factors such as route, aircraft type, payload and aircraft availability. To give you indications though: London – Nice – London with four passengers on a VLJ like a Cessna 510 Mustang or Embraer Phenom 100 would be approximately €7,500 - €9,000. Whereas a one-way flight from London to Cape Town on a long range private jet would be roughly €100,000 - €120,000.” »

Much of the pleasure of savouring wine is in understanding its nuances, yet the effects of altitude, cabin pressure and air quality mean that selecting the right wine for a flight can prove to be difficult

Wine in the sky

VistaJet’s fleet of over 70 business jets has flown corporations, governments and private clients to 187 countries, covering 96% of the world. Founded in 2004, the company pioneered an innovative business model where customers have access to an entire fleet whilst paying only for the hours they fly, free of the responsibilities and asset risks linked to aircraft ownership. VistaJet’s signature Program membership offers customers a bespoke subscription of flight hours on its fleet of mid and long-range jets, to fly them anytime, anywhere. Customers can also request direct one-off flights. The company has now decided to redefine wine in flight with a collection of expert findings,

signature and wine club selections, tastings in the sky and curated tours. The VistaJet Wine Program has been designed to enhance the exploration of the world of wine on its aircraft and at world destinations. VistaJet founder and chairman, Thomas Flohr, is an avid collector and investor in wine with a cellar of more than 3,000 bottles and a particular passion for Burgundies. “Enjoying a glass of wine while in flight should be the same as a glass of wine in a restaurant,” he says. “But nobody has ever managed to offer this on a global scale. So, to provide the consistency of service and quality to our members, we have created the first global program that will ensure our guests enjoy the best possible

wine in the sky whilst catering to all their needs when it comes to tasting, collecting, discovering and developing a deeper knowledge of wine – anytime, anywhere.” Much of the pleasure of savouring wine is in understanding its nuances, yet the effects of altitude, cabin pressure and air quality mean that selecting the right wine for a flight can prove to be difficult. During the development of The VistaJet Wine Program, the company hosted some of the world’s foremost wine experts, including those from Marchesi Antinori, Rothschild (Lafite), Ca’ del Bosco and Artemis Domaines, on several flights to sample, taste and compare a number of different wines from all over the world. “By tasting on the ground and in the sky,” expalains Mr Flohr, “the experts were able to further understand how taste and smell are the senses most affected by the atmosphere and work together in a pressurised cabin; nasal sensors’ reception of aromas are limited owing to the lower air pressure that comes with a lower humidity; bubbles found in sparkling wines, which contain up to 30 times more aromas than the liquid, tend to stick to the sides of the glass; and that fruit flavours are diminished, while bitterness and spiciness are largely unaffected.”

Dubai aims high Many impressive residential projects have recently been completed and new developments are springing up all over the emirate. We find out more about where to buy and why


here’s a lot happening in Dubai at present and much is being done to support its ongoing prospects. Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (Dubai Tourism) is rolling out a set of initiatives to deliver end-to-end ‘Only in Dubai’ experiences to ensure tourists enjoy an unforgettable stay in the emirate and encourage repeat visits. This is part of efforts to further strengthen and sustain the city’s world-class propositions. One of the key pillars of Dubai’s Tourism Vision 2022-2025, the ‘Only in Dubai’ set of initiatives will deliver authentic and worldclass end-to-end destination experiences across travel touchpoints that are tailored to relevant segments of tourists. The ultimate aim is to make Dubai the most visited city in the world, targeting 25 million visitors annually by 2025.

This is naturally expected to have a positive effect on the popularity of property purchasing in Dubai. Jason Hayes, founder and CEO of, believes that the fundamentals of the Dubai property market already remain strong. “While 2018 was a year with its fair share of challenges, it did provide plenty of opportunity for those who persevered,” he says. “Moving into 2019, it is my expectation that the market will enter a period of stability. We have already seen the delivery of stunning projects such as The 118 Downtown, District One and some of the villas at Dubai Hills. This year, we look forward to the delivery of several more exciting projects, including the W Residences, Bluewaters Island and further homes at Dubai Hills. “Early last year, the UAE government announced new initiatives that would offer five and 10-year residence visas for investors, and 100% foreign ownership for entrepreneurs. They have started going into effect this year and will undoubtedly prove to be key market drivers. The full impact of the initiatives will be felt later in the year, particularly in Q4 2019, when I believe there will be a return to modest single-digit growth.” Maria Morris, partner – head of MENA Residential – Knight Frank Middle East, reports that, to date, almost 20 per cent of buyers at The Royal Atlantis Residnces on The Palm are British. “These buyers can appreciate that Atlantis offers something completely new in terms of apartment living in Dubai. Kerzner International, through their Atlantis and One&Only brands, has always redefined destinations and introduced awe-inspiring and neverbefore-seen experiences, and this next phase in Atlantis’s development is no exception. “Furthermore, the properties represent Dubai’s first ‘super-prime’ branded residences. The designers engaged to mastermind the project have been drawn from a global pool of experts. As a result, buyers can expect architecture, interiors, on-site facilities and landscaping not just barraising for Dubai, but internationally. We are creating living experiences for highly discerning individuals. They have travelled the world, have the finest luxury goods at their fingertips and expect the very best in design, architecture and lifestyle.”

ocation, location, location – how many times has this been advised to be the vital factor to take into account when purchasing a property? However, it has to be said that in the case of the Home Counties, no truer word has been spoken. Anouar Elkhadraoui, Land & Sales director at Newcourt Residential comments, “There is an undeniable increase in demand for elite country estates from buyers who are seeking specific attributes from their primary residence. Whether purchasers prioritise placing their family in a secure environment with access to superior schooling within a relaxed, countrified setting, or they are inclined to a more compact, lock up and go investment. Those seeking spacious family homes in locations such as these are in high demand, particularly as residents will benefit from being surrounded by an abundance of land and greenery.” Bruce O’Grady, managing director of Sherbourne Developments, reports that at the top end of the Home

Counties market, there is strong demand amongst buyers looking to purchase their own mini estate that is equipped with an array of entertaining spaces and functions, allowing them to host the ultimate in weekend retreats. He explains, “The new country homeowner demands a level of luxury that is not historically seen in period country houses and which is more akin to the standard expected in luxury country house hotels. Whilst attracted to period features and charm, these buyers don’t want the hassle of maintaining a period home and instead increasingly want all of the necessary mod cons that they have become accustomed to. »

united kingdom This is where our ‘listed buildings of the future’ come into their own; our clients increasingly want the best of both worlds with period style, detailing and craftsmanship, with contemporary layouts and infrastructure. “Only a few years ago, a tennis court or swimming pool would have sufficed. However, the new luxury country homeowner has come to expect much more out of their country entertaining pad. It is now not uncommon for our clients to request homes with their own cinema, bowling alley or dedicated party room. Prime Home Counties’ locations remain the most popular and areas within striking distance of London are the most desirable, thereby commanding a premium.”

Making a move

According to Jason Corbett, director of Country Sales & Lettings, the ‘must move’ market is a significant driver in the Home Counties at the moment. “This is particularly prevalent throughout the sub £1 million market where everyday occurrences such as expanding families, divorce, jobs or death requires these vendors to move,” he explains. “However, we are starting to see more and more buyers playing the current market conditions to their advantage and upsizing while prices are steadily decreasing due to the current uncertainty around Brexit. We could see a return to normality and a correction of pricing back to the highs of 2014 if the government provides more certainty around Brexit and a beneficial deal is struck with the EU. “The Home Counties has traditionally proved popular with commuters looking to enjoy a tranquil countryside setting whilst benefiting from quick links into the capital. However, it is now not enough to just have a station which offers services into London nearby, buyers are more and more interested in the quality of service run by the rail providers and whether they will get a seat on the train. Surrey remains a strong favourite amongst our clients, with Cobham, Guildford, Esher and Woking offering journey times into London of under 40 minutes yet with the glorious Surrey Hills on their doorstep.”

Luton Hoo Hotel Golf & Spa

This Grade I listed, 18th century mansion house has been painstakingly restored to its former glory and stands proudly within 1,065 acres of magnificent grounds landscaped by Capability Brown


deally located on the Hertfordshire/Bedfordshire border, Luton Hoo Hotel, Golf & Spa is steeped in history, having once been owned by diamond magnate Julius Wernher. It hosted a visit from Sir Winston Churchill with a crowd of 110,000 to hear his address and has previously been graced by royalty with Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip spending part of their honeymoon and subsequent anniversaries at Luton Hoo.

Since taking ownership of Luton Hoo, Elite Hotels has converted the mansion house into a five-star hotel, restoring its former Belle Époquestyle glory, transforming the former stable block into a country club and spa, creating a new 18-hole golf course and constructing a brand-new, purpose-built, exclusive-hire venue, Warren Weir, for corporate events and weddings. Other highlights of the 228-bedroom, five-star country house hotel include the fine-dining Wernher Restaurant and Adam’s Brasserie restaurant.

for all

SEASONS Switzerland is renowned for its mountainous beauty, picturesque chalets and excellent skiing – but that’s not all


ith approximately 150 ski resorts, more than 5,500km of cross-country ski trails and winter walking trails at over 2,800 metres, Switzerland is a veritable winter wonderland. However, the fun doesn’t stop once the snow melts. Jonathan Epiney of Chestertons Alpine Homes in Switzerland says, “In the winter months skiing, cross-country skiing, ice skating, sledging, hiking and Nordic walking are the main activities. In the other three seasons, all sorts of outdoor activities are available in all resorts with an increasing interest on mountain biking, hiking and wellness.”

Guaranteed snow

While for decades the main pole of buyers has been the UK and the EU, Mr Epiney reports that he has noticed an increase in the requests, and therefore transactions, from the domestic market. “At the moment, I would say that 40% of our sales are made to Swiss nationals and/ or residents. Hardcore skiers will focus on the ‘snowguaranteed resorts’ such as the Four Valleys, Portes du Soleil or Val d’Anniviers, while the lifestyle clientele aim for the sunnier side of the valley such as Anzère or Crans-Montana. Verbier and Zermatt remain top of the league when it comes to prime resorts. “For years, most of the transactions were in the CHF 1.5million region. However, recently we had lots of transaction around CHF 1million or above CHF 2 million. With the Lex Weber, recent changes and Swiss laws, we anticipate an increase of prices in the forthcoming years as building off-plan properties is not permitted anymore. Therefore, existing properties will increase in value.” (The Lex Weber has prevented any building permits being granted for second homes in any communes where second homes already make up 20% » of the property stock.) 101

Small and excluve

Tim Swannie, director of buying agency Home Hunts, comments, “We find apartments and chalets in Verbier are amongst the most sought after and most expensive in the entire Alps. The market is quite buoyant throughout the year, particularly with the Brits, Dutch and Scandinavians. This is because the resort is only small and very exclusive and the scenery is spectacular. The slopes do accommodate all levels, although they best suit confident and adventurous skiers and snowboarders. “There is also a great selection of restaurants and nightlife, as well as resorts such as the W Hotel – all of which attract international clients, making the rental market really strong. Verbier is very much one of the ‘must have’ places in the Alps for wealthy property buyers.” Mark Lightfoot, owner and founder of, points out that there is no standardisation in the market for the sale or purchase of properties between the resorts. “Each resort offers something very different to visitors across the seasons,” he explains, “and can therefore command a wide range of prices. “The resorts seeing the highest sale prices include Verbier – not least as it has a reputation for some of the best skiing and more expensive holidays. Verbier also benefits from high summer visitor numbers thanks to an excellent range of non-snow activities in the warmer months for example, hiking, mountain biking, abseiling and paragliding. The same benefits are also seen in resorts such as St Moritz and Andermatt, where buyers of investment properties can expect their property to appreciate due to consistent demand for these locations. Having the potential to rent out a property for 365 days a year has enormous investment benefits for all resorts across Switzerland.”


This impressive chalet is on a 690m2 plot and offers 325m2 of living space. Its living and dining rooms are located right underneath the high wooden roof structure in the upper parts of the house, offering prime views over the surrounding mountains. The property also has five double bedrooms with their own bathrooms, as well as a master bedroom with its own dressing room. A relaxation area includes a sauna, jacuzzi, shower and gym space.

bsolutely stunning, out of this world, full of wow factor, exemplary in every respect – these are just a few ways in which our judges described the ultimate winning entries of the 2018-2019 International Property Awards.

As always during the 24-year history of these prestigious awards, our aim has been to determine the finest architects, developers, interior designers and real estate agents and provide these outstanding companies with the global recognition they deserve. Following regional gala presentation dinners held in Bangkok, Dubai, Toronto and London, I am now delighted to announce the winners of the highly coveted World’s Best Awards. The title of ‘World’s Best Property’ was awarded to Vinhomes Riverside by Vinhomes Management JSC. Part of an established ecological urban township at the gateway of Hanoi’s Eastern area in Vietnam, its sustainable design and build delivers a superior green living standard combined with hotel-standard services. The Museum of Ethnography in Budapest, Hungary by Varosliget Europe won the accolade for ‘World’s Best Architecture’. Within Liget Budapest, Europe’s largest urban cultural development, the building respects its surrounding historical green spaces, yet creates a powerful architectural presence to raise international awareness of Budapest and Hungarian culture. Many congratulations to these companies and to all other winning entrants listed in this publication.

   designers behind the Museum of Ethnography in Budapest, Hungary, can think of their work as a gift to the world. It is a part of Liget Budapest – Europe’s largest urban cultural development. And, as one of Europe’s first ethnographic institutions, the museum’s collections comprise more than 200,000 items from the Carpathian Basin and every corner of the globe. Using state-of-the-art technology and a flexible space, the museum needed to house and present the cultural diversity of humanity – no small feat! The architectural design of the museum thus allows access to its collection while also ensuring active social and scientific participation by the institution. The building had to be respectful of the surrounding historical green spaces of the

City Park, while also creating a powerful architectural presence that was capable of boosting international awareness of Budapest and Hungarian culture. The museum has been in operation since 1872 and has been redesigned to become a place which is a national treasure, where all members of society can return to, time and time again. It also contains archived documents, more than 400,000 historical photographs, manuscripts, sound archives and a film library. The museum’s traditional ethnographic collection of national character is internationally prominent, while its pottery, textile and costume collections are the largest of this kind on the continent. The exhibition hall plays an important role in representing the value of the collections,

not just the scale of them. It is designed to give a sense of the range of materials from the museum and how they can be connected to areas of both historic and modern culture (such as usage, lifestyle, decoration, style and everyday celebrations). Visitors at the new museum can become aware of the social origin of the members of the society and also recognise their own social roots. The most important of the institutional requirements made of the new museum building was the establishment of a ‘social museum’, as defined in the museum’s mission statement. And the development of a building capable of fulfilling the role of a museum of international culture. The objective was to create a cultural institution that is much more inclined to use the term ‘culture’ in the

plural, demonstrating the dynamic dialogue between cultures. In this spirit, the Museum of Ethnography had to be a complex concept transformed into bricks and mortar. In the 145 years since the foundation of the Museum of Ethnography, this is the first occasion that it has become possible to provide a worthy and permanent home for this exceptional collection, in a building expressly designed and built for this purpose and equipped with modern facilities. The new Museum of Ethnography will therefore be able to build on and further conceptualise its achievements to date to extend the Hungarian museum network with a new type of institution in which the proactive and sensitive zone of contact for ethnographic museology also operates as an intercultural centre.

The Bachelorette Pad


 I  one of the leading design studios operating in the Asia Pacific region today. Helmed by partners Nikki Hunt and Andrea Savage, its work has garnered an international reputation for attention to detail, quality and creativity, winning awards at national, regional and global levels. The Bachelorette Pad in Singapore has won three awards for its kitchen, bathroom and lighting design. The client is a professional, single lady and her apartment is styled to exude a serene glamour with a sense of feminine romance and a nod to her Chinese heritage. She wanted her kitchen to feel fully integrated within the home with a continuous design theme between the different zones. As there was no requirement for entertaining, a kitchen island with a compact dining space was included as well as a fully functioning cooking zone. Design Intervention had been inspired by a television drama set in an Art Deco hotel

featuring curved walls accented by horizontal lines. With this in mind, curved walls were used to soften the kitchen’s hard lines and imbue a warm and feminine ambience. They also echo the rounded forms of the furnishings in the living zone, integrating the two beautifully. Unique bathing experiences were of paramount importance to the client and so a significant portion of floor space has been allocated to create an ultimate retreat. A key requirement was that the master suite flowed seamlessly between the bathing and sleeping areas without any doors. Design Intervention eschewed traditional hard finishes such as tiles and marble and opted for an acrylic solid surface which is warmer and softer to the touch. This was thermally shaped to give continuous, bespoke organic forms and exude the feminine softness required. The lighting design is also a key design feature of this home. Throughout the entire

process, Design Intervention has employed the use of creative lighting to imbue the apartment with an inherent romance and warmth. A particular innovation was to transform furniture pieces into lamps introducing low level lighting without introducing additional items that could clutter the living space. SLB Office Singapore is owned by a fashion design and manufacturing company in the Central Business District. As the business is family run, the design brief was for an environment that would reflect their personality. Rather than exuding a corporate feel, they wanted the workspace to reflect their products. The office enjoys stunning cityscape views and so Design Intervention ensured that the layout allowed each office space and the conference room to have the best of these vistas. The sample measuring area was also situated in front of the large windows to utilise maximum natural daylight.

Early Learning Village

The Early Learning Village is a collaboration between Singapore’s Australian International School and the Stamford American International School. At 50,000m² with five buildings, more than 100 classrooms and a capacity for 2,100 children, it is the world’s largest pre-school space. Design Intervention was tasked with the interior design of the public spaces as well as the libraries. The client brief was to create inspired spaces for young learners, incorporating interactive elements. Both schools subscribe to the world-famous Reggio Emilia philosophy of incorporating the environment as a third teacher. Hence, the overall design softens the architectural colossus to create friendly, intimate spaces that will delight and excite small children and also appeal to their parents. Each school was given its own identity and reflects their individual cultures whilst ensuring a balance in the level of execution.

It has a team of over 100 professionals capable of delivering large-scale commercial real estate projects and, following its success on the Polish market, has opened branches in London and Berlin. The company’s award-winning project Chmielna 89 is an office development in the central business area of Warsaw. Created as a new landmark for Chmielna, one of the central streets of the Polish capital, its main design criterion was to provide ample sunlight both for the interior of the building and the neighbouring developments. The building is unique due to its crystallike shape which fulfils the requirement for

maximum natural light. Standing 79.36 metres high, it has 14 floors, each of which provides a panoramic view of the city from its interiors and spectacular terraces. All floors have been designed in an open plan layout for flexible tenant arrangements and include underground parking connected by lifts and staircases. The western elevation is the only one that is entirely vertical as the southern and eastern are slightly tilted at the bottom. Additionally, since the building has an inclined roof or, technically, no roof at all, it was possible to set up three green terraces. The technical equipment is hidden under blinds on top of the northern elevation. Tenants have the benefit of a 600m² two-storey high lobby and space is also provided for a large restaurant and café at the ground floor.

The company’s latest award-winning project is for one of Macau’s major casino gaming enterprises. The client’s vision was to develop ‘City of Dreams’, an outstanding entertainment complex including casinos, hotels, retail arcades and speciality restaurants on Cotai Island. As part of this new complex, the client wanted to create an exclusive Chinese restaurant for VIP patrons and their guests. Inarc was thus commissioned to design ‘The Treasure Palace’. As the venue is located on the ground floor and mezzanine floor of the entertainment complex, its design capitalises on both

the daylight factor and picturesque views overlooking the adjacent lake. The resulting restaurant has been designed to accommodate approximately 360 people in both open dining areas and five unique private dining rooms of varying sizes. It was decided that different dining moods should be provided for both lunch and dinner experiences as well as a teamaking ceremony exhibition counter. Custom designed, red and gold ‘swimming fish’ inspired sculptural pendant chandeliers have been created for each seating bay in the large open dining area. Similar but smaller white chandeliers were made for each of the private dining rooms – both versions are backlit by programmable LED lights. Symbolising good luck and fortune, they form stunning centrepieces to this superb dining venue.

It has grown from a single office in Estoril with just four staff to seven showrooms located in prime sites across Portugal with more than 30 employees dedicated to the luxury residential real estate market. The company differs from all its competitors in Portugal in many ways. Firstly, it has a very well defined and budgeted expansion plan in terms of the geographical areas of the country that it wishes to represent. All of Fine & Country Portugal’s offices are owned and managed by the company rather than being

franchised and its staff are encouraged to build long term relationships with potential buyers and vendors alike. Rejecting as many listings as it accepts, Fine & Country Portugal bases its acceptance on the probability of being able to sell the property and whether it fits well with the firm’s overall portfolio. Fine & Country Portugal’s marketing team is trained to have a ‘martech’ profile and strategies – a key skill to perform digital marketing functions. In addition to all digital goals and objectives, it continues to believe in offline and the power of media coverage. This overall marketing philosophy is summed up perfectly in the company’s slogan, ‘Bringing buyers and vendors together’.

H A D (PHA) is earning an international reputation as one of the leading architects of large-scale, mixeduse projects in Asia. Headquartered in London and Hong Kong, the company has branches in Shenzhen, Shanghai and Beijing. Its awardwinning project Genzon Kexing Technology Park D4 Tower is located in the new CBD of Shenzhen, China. The development is surrounded by six office towers and so PHA’s aim was to design a brand new façade which would put the development firmly in the spotlight, thus making it become a new must-go-to hub for the public. Newly constructed highways and elevated bridges have blocked the area’s pedestrian circulation and made most of the public spaces inaccessible. Therefore, PHA

has designed this central tower to resemble a kaleidoscope. During the day, through the reflection and juxtaposition of the surrounding scene on every folding glass, it becomes a collaged drawing on the building. Each of the six modules is formulated through parametric design with a LED display which forms a pixel screen for night-time use bringing a range of diverse possibilities for public use. A curved canopy was designed for the plaza next to the D4 Tower which enables the area to host various events. A roof garden has also been created as a semi-public open space which can be enjoyed by office workers. By combining and integrating art, office and open space into this central hub, it brings a new and refreshing working environment to all those concerned.

The group owns and operates 97 shopping centres, of which 56 are flagships in the most dynamic cities in Europe and the United States. Wroclavia is the company’s latest award-winning project located at the heart of Wroclaw in Poland. This brand new shopping centre is integrated with a bus station and office spaces and perfectly combines modernity and tradition. The focus of Wroclavia’s designers was to develop a state-of-the-art architectural concept which would become a timeless point of reference. The design refers also to things that are meaningful for Wroclaw residents – such as protecting an ancient oak standing in front of the building and references to the Odra River

which flows through the city in the project’s interior design. The design objective was to develop a multifunctional and multi-storey building, with predominant retail functions, supplemented by dining and leisure areas, offices, a large car park and integrated bus station. Great attention was given to the project’s external walls which were extremely important in the city context. High quality aluminium wall cladding was chosen, extensively illuminated at night and enriched by floral elements. Wroclavia features the big city character of its neighbourhood while creating a modern and comfortable communication hub. It has also established a new shopping and leisure experience, offering a unique atmosphere, new quality of service, flagship stores, the best restaurants and the largest, top class cinema with an IMAX hall.

Divided into three residential communities – Golf, Beach and Al-Manazel – each one offers its own unique benefits alongside a distinct lifestyle experience. Approximately 12,000 plus highly desirable residences will occupy the district when Al Murooj is fully complete. The Beach Communities in Al Murooj are the most prestigious within the whole of KAEC. Altogether, they spread over 900,000m² and boast spectacular views of the Red Sea. A limited offer of spectacular, super-sized beachfront plots ranging from 1,000 – 5,000m² are even positioned right by the sea to take full advantage of this unique location.

The company was founded in 2010 and since then has worked on developing large-scale projects such as Lisi Green Town in Tbilisi, Kokhta-Mitarbi Resort in Borjomi Municipality and Buknari Resort on the Black Sea Coast. The aim of the projects is to create not only a modern living style and refined architectural complex but also to establish a brand new environment for an ecological and healthy way of living in Georgia. Since its foundation, Lisi Development has introduced an innovative principle of 80/20, which implies using only 20% of the territory for the residential part, and the remaining 80% for creating recreational zones and additional infrastructure.

Lisi Green Town is the company’s first large-scale project. It covers a five hectare land plot and comprises: residential apartments; duplexes; townhouses, private houses, villas, parks, swimming pools, a gym, children’s and entertainment zones, open and closed parking. The architectural project of Green Town is created by local and international, well-known architects. Lisi Green Tower is a new residential building within Lisi Green Town. The design concept of the project is made by the famous Dutch architectural company UNStudio. The 11-storey tower contains 32 apartments ranging from 85m² to 200m², three retail units and an underground car park for residents. All apartments have spectacular views over the Mtkvari River valley and the fast-developing city of Tbilisi. The tower’s

design concept is based on a combination of the local and traditional Georgian ‘veranda’ approach and smart living solutions. By using verandas as spaces for interaction, the anonymous boundaries of a multi-storied apartment complex disappear. The design creates neighborhoods in the sky, connecting people through architecture and social sustainability. Kokhta-Mitarbi Resort is the second huge project by Lisi Development on a mountain resort in Borjomi municipality. The project comprises a famous Georgian brand Rooms Hotel and residential apartments (500 unit) entertainment zones, cafes, bars, restaurants, swimming pool and much more. It is distinguished due to the following factors: first – it is a four-season relaxation opportunity; second – Kokhta Gora and

Mitarbi’s unique green landscape; third – ski-in and ski-out concept – integration of ski tracks and the building; fourth – its master plan, made by the international well-known French companies ‘Geode’ and ‘Compagnie des Alpes’ (both have worked on the development plans of various resorts worldwide). The highest standards of construction, as well as the natural riches of both locations, ensure that the resort is attractive for families, tourists, people who prefer active adventurous holidays and especially those who want to escape noisy cities any time of the year and enjoy beautiful nature, fresh air and the unique medicinal plants. The new 100-room hotel complex and apartments will be operational and ready to receive the first guests from this year.

The company was appointed by one of the world’s leading engineering services firms, WSP, to carry out the space planning, interior design and fit out of its new headquarters of approximately 6,000m² located in the Knightsbridge office park, Bryanston. The brief stipulated that the office interiors must reflect WSP’s culture of collaboration, innovation and excellence throughout its design. Therefore, the resulting interiors illustrate the successful implementation of a tailor-fit workspace strategy and biophilic design principles. This approach not only addresses the aesthetics of the interior but also has a positive impact on the emotional, cognitive and physical wellbeing of users.

1 Discovery Place is the new head office of Discovery, a South African health and life insurance company. Boogertman + Partners were given two distinct goals for the project. The first was to create an architectural statement that captured the essence of the Discovery brand. The second was to improve efficiencies in the day to day working of the company while allowing flexibility for future growth. Key features of the building are the floating ‘nose’ of the west tower which projects over the main intersection and the sun-lit internal atria. A significant challenge was how to move people vertically through the space in a way that allowed them to enjoy the scale of the atriums and concourse without feeling intimidated. The solution was double volume landings looking out from the relative ‘security’ of the smaller space.

The greatest influence for this 700m² five-bedroom home was its orientation which incorporates views of the water, the use of photovoltaic solar panels and the natural trade winds that provide cross breezes on hot and humid days. Due to the extreme heat, hurricane winds, potential storm surge and heavy rainfall, all of which are common in the Caribbean, insulated concrete forms with an elastomeric finish were used for heightened strength. Large roof overhangs and window eyebrows were also incorporated into the design style to keep the terraces in shade and the sun’s rays off the glass. Overall, the property has been designed to incorporate the very best for indoor/outdoor entertaining and a true Caribbean lifestyle.

All three entrances are given equal importance and lead to a central ‘hall’ of attraction. The sales area covers 80% of the entire boutique and is split into high and mid-price segments. Its interior design forms a stage without overshadowing the main actors, the goods. With shoes, bags and accessories forming the colourful leading characters, Dobas chose mellow, earth tone colours in contrast. The only exception is a piece of art

that embraces the full scheme of colours and provides a striking focal point. Open and intimate areas invite the customer to meander through the boutique and for VIP customers each category of goods offers a privacy area. The choice of materials was crucial in creating an elegant and welcoming atmosphere. A balance of hard and soft elements was also required to optimise the acoustics within such a large space and with high numbers of visitors expected at the same time. The large shop front window is designed to change the appearance of the boutique according to the seasons. Gates in Arabian style then act as access to the window while also allowing a fascinating peek into the boutique beyond.

The company’s project ‘Aperture’ is a new condo and townhouse development in Vancouver which has won a trio of awards. Its name comes from the frames surrounding each floorto-ceiling window. These regulate the amount of light allowed into each unit, much like the aperture of a camera. Located in Oakridge, one of the last areas in Vancouver to be developed, Aperture is an artful enclave of six innovative buildings surrounding a tranquil courtyard garden. Aperture’s architectural design responds to its ‘single-family-transitioning-to-urban’ context with a unique campus-like massing. This steps down in scale from two, six-storey buildings on the busy arterial road down to

stand-alone villas that are sensitive to the single-family neighbourhood to the north of the development. The project’s Asian-inspired landscape is rooted in nature and features wood, bamboo, river rocks and running water. Complementing these surroundings perfectly, Aperture’s exteriors are inspired by iconic images of stacked timber. The design deftly pays homage to the area’s mid-century modernist heritage while adding a West Coast flavour, while spacious interiors feature the simple elegance of hardwood floors, wood veneer cabinetry and quartz countertops. Aperture is now a distinct landmark development in Vancouver. Its ongoing goals are to encourage community interaction through unique open spaces in a traditionally introverted, single-family neighbourhood and to gain LEED Gold certification.

Her award-winning project, Berendeevo Tsarstvo in Siberia, has been built on a 550m² plot of land in traditional Russian style yet with all modern requirements for 21st century living. Named after the fairy tale pagan kingdom of the mysterious King Berendey, who was believed to be a sorcerer, its design concept follows a theme of Russian fairy tales. The ultimate aim was to create a fabulous palace as if straight from a story book. Several non-standard solutions were used to make the newly built wooden house appear as if it has been lived in for many years. The ceilings are all trimmed with a hand-painted pine board featuring a different pattern

in every room and ornaments have been artificially aged. Following the fairy tale theme, lighting was most important and so lights and chandeliers have been specially selected to be in-keeping with the theme of each room. The client requested a fireplace to create a centre piece and talking point in the living room. In order to achieve this, several thousand ceramic tiles were handmade in accordance with samples from 13th century craftsmen with every design being unique. Each side of the central fireplace symbolises a different season and the finished result is so elegant that it resembles a porcelain casket. Featuring beautifully carved staircases, traditional Russian pottery and folk art crafts, this is a fairy tale palace come true.

Euro Ville Convention Hall

Euroville Clubhouse is an inseparable part of The Star Platinum Euroville project. Promoting wellness, it creates an environment in which members can escape their daily routine and feel refreshed. Adopting the overall architectural design of the main residential project, which is in the neoclassical style, additional inspiration for the clubhouse has come from Berlin’s famous Brandenburg Gate. Its look is elegant, sophisticated and consistent. Euroville Convention Hall has been designed to offer a new experience to both residents and the nearby community as a public venue for social events. In order to harmonise the whole architecture of the Euroville area, the Convention Hall has been designed with a combination of Khmer and European architectural styles. As the largest building in the Grand Star Platinum, its architectural inspiration has come from Angkor Wat, a temple complex in Cambodia.

AD A  a design firm specialising in hospitality, commercial and residential projects. The boutique firm offers clients a wide range of design services with personalised attention to detail and is dedicated to providing innovative design solutions to suit each client’s economic, marketing and aesthetic goals. The unique designs created by RAD reflect the culture and atmosphere of their locations, as demonstrated admirably by its award-winning project, The Shore Club Turks and Caicos. The resort’s initial design began in 2007, with the client’s directive being to maximise the allowable density of condo-hotel units on to the nine-acre beach front site. This yielded RAD’s first design with five beach front fivestorey condo-hotel buildings and all associated amenities of a typical Caribbean resort. This

design progressed all the way through to the completion of construction documents until the economic recession of 2008 shelved the entire project. The client then recommissioned RAD in 2011 with a new brief to retain two of the low-rise condo-hotel buildings and introduce six luxurious six-bedroom villas, all with their own pools, hot tubs and beach front access. In addition to the condo-hotel product, the brief included a main lobby and reception building, administrative offices, four food and beverage outlets, a spa, fitness centre, multi-function banquet space, four distinct pools, and all back of house operational areas required for a fivestar resort. At the time of design and construction, the allowable building height was seven stories, but the client chose to keep a lower density

property and the design was established for five stories. Being five stories established the 100 feet building setback from the existing beach front vegetation line. Inspiration for the design concept was sought from the tropical British Colonial and Barbadian architecture of Oliver Messel. The climatic context of the development greatly impacted design of the master plan. Being on the windward, beach front side of the island, it was decided that the largest pool be tucked behind the two low-rise guest suite buildings and flanked with cabanas to act as a wind buffer on overly windy days. While the guest suite buildings and villas are of the more traditional vocabulary, the client brief requested that the public area designs lean towards contemporary Caribbean casual. Coral render is utilised to great effect on the interior

and exterior in patterns to simulate coarse cut coral stone. A system of corridors and lockout doors were designed to allow for full rental flexibility for all bedrooms. To keep guest and employee activities interaction to a minimum, a basement level tunnel system connects the entire resort from the main back of house building through all public buildings to under the guest suite buildings and villas. All stairs and lifts extend to the back of house basement for easy employee access for housekeeping, room service, butler, bellman or any maintenance calls. In addition to The Shore Club Turks and Caicos’ stunning and innovative design, its location sets this resort apart from others in Providenciales as it is the first and only hotel situated on Long Bay Beach which gives guests the feel of a private island experience.

Its continued expansion inevitably lead to the need for new offices, creating the perfect opportunity to extend Bareo’s skills into architectural design, taking total control of its destiny. Incorporating fundamental concepts from the ancient Chinese philosophy of Feng Shui, design cues were taken from the ideas of bubbles and sponges to meet the basic element of ‘water’, complementing the dominant ‘earth’ element of Bareo’s founder. This has translated to gentle, curvaceous forms utilising insulation foam and FSC wood that avoid sharp edges and corners, with double skin facades sporting rounded cutouts over large glazed areas.

Careful adherence to the flow of Qi encourage a flow of money and prosperity through the positioning of the main office areas. Seven entrances fulfil specific functions, covering staff, visitors and services. Temperature management is a major factor in Thailand, so the physical building design is intended to minimise heat uptake, supporting air conditioning and reducing energy usage. The building includes a cafeteria and fitness area for staff, ensuring all their wellness needs are met. The office also incorporates a luxurious residential space on the second floor, with a sweeping spiral staircase connecting to the open-plan living area. The end result is a striking and eminently usable building that will take Bareo into the next few decades of existence.
