Welcome! It’s that time of year when many of us are heading off to the slopes for an eagerly anticipated skiing holiday. I must admit that I absolutely love the snow, although I appreciate that it can cause chaos when travelling, particularly in the UK. The big freeze often seems to catch some areas by surprise, leaving them ill-prepared to keep traffic and trains on the move. One solution to make the most of the season could be to invest in your own ski chalet or apartment in Switzerland or the USA for example. This means that you can reap the benefits of destinations that are totally geared up to take full advantage of the heaviest snowfalls. With this in mind, we’ve suggested several fabulous locations with properties to match, all of which prove ideal for the most experienced skier or nervous novice. Looking further ahead towards spring and the thought of fresh starts, we decided it would be interesting to explore current new-build properties in both Andalusia and Dubai. They have much to offer by way of climate and lifestyle as well as several highly tempting developments that are newly finished or close to completion. We also take a trip along South Africa’s glorious Garden Route, discovering a host of stunning homes for sale on the way. Last but not least we can reveal London’s largest and most expensive lateral apartment for rent alongside a selection of Mayfair’s prime residences awaiting new ownership.

SPAIN

Appreciating

Andalusia This beautiful region of Spain creates an axis between Europe and Africa as well as being the place where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Mediterranean Sea. We explore some of its latest developments and most scenic properties

T

here are so many amazing aspects of Andalusia that make it a fascinating place to visit time and time again. For example, the region is even larger than many countries such as Austria, Switzerland, Belgium and Denmark. This enables it to offer a wide range of different landscapes and environments from Alpine mountainscapes to the tropical shores of the Mediterranean. Andalusia’s coast alone extends to almost 900 kilometres and features a host of interesting towns and cites as well as glorious beaches.

Lucas Fox’s Marbella director, Stephen Lahiri, says, “Currently most of our clients are from Scandinavia, Belgium and other Northern European countries looking for holiday homes in Marbella. They tend to prefer new-build modern design apartments, as close to the beach and facilities as possible and ideally with some kind of sea or at least open views. “They are open to different areas along the Costa del Sol and increasingly are opting for the likes of Benahavis, Estepona or Mijas Costa. Most buyers are younger business or professional people with families. Certainly they are younger and more international that the traditional British retirees of yesteryear who you used to make up the majority of the buyers.”

Spain · Appreciating Andalusia

Mr Lahiri reports that Lucas Fox is finding that its clients are becoming increasingly discerning in their property search. “In the last few years,” he says, “we’ve seen confidence returning to the Marbella market and price growth has moved into positive territory with increasing demand for modern villas in prime locations offering spectacular views. “What we are seeing is effectively a twospeed recovery in the property market. As prices continue to consolidate in inland areas of Spain, sought-after locations such as the Costa del Sol, Barcelona, Madrid and the Balearics are seeing price rises. Brexit has obviously had an impact on British buying habits on the Costa Del Sol especially at the lower end of the market, but we continue to see increasing numbers of Scandinavian and Benelux buyers. At the same time there has also been a significant increase in the numbers of projects and new properties being built over the last three years.” Figures from the Spanish property portal Idealista suggest that the country’s property prices went up by nearly six per cent yearon-year to June 2016. In recent months it reports that property prices on some re-sale properties and in a few of the established areas have taken a slight downward adjustment, leaving sellers now more open to negotiation. However, there are a lot of new, off-plan projects available which appear to be selling very well. Over the next two years, Idealista expects an increasing number of new projects coming on to the market with the fringe areas outside Marbella starting to attract more buyers. This will provide increasing competition for Marbella and so prices are expected to stabilise, while prime areas such as the Golden Mile, Sierra Blanca and La Zagaleta will continue to command a premium. 16

La Bobadilla Royal Hideaway is a

boutique hotel set in 700 hectares of

natural surroundings to ensure absolute

peace and tranquility for its guests

D

uring the early 80s, a distinguished lawyer and businessman decided that he would like to start a new project in an outstanding setting. He visited the Loja mountains in the very heart of Andalusia and decided to buy a 350 hectare olive grove estate where silence reigned against a stunning backdrop of mountains. His initial aim was to build a luxurious restaurant with a design that respected its surroundings, while reflecting Andalusia’s cultural mix. Gradually, the project became more ambitious, resulting in an Andalusian-style village; a silhouette of typical white houses in the middle of olive groves topped by the chapel’s bell tower. The five-star hotel La Bobadilla opened its doors in 1985 for the first time and its design remains the same today, built around a central plaza or square filled with 22

flowers and featuring a traditional fountain. Inside, the elegant lobby with its marble columns is similar to the interior of the Great Mosque in Cordoba, making it one of the most spectacular lobbies in the world. La Bobadilla grew in size after adjacent land was purchased. The number of guests also increased, including celebrities and artists searching for an inspirational retreat, royalty seduced by reminders of former Andalusian kingdoms, and others attracted by the feeling of time standing still. In 1992, the success of the hotel was confirmed when it became part of the international chain The Leading Hotels of the World. Every room in the La Bobadilla has its own character, surprising guests with its spaciousness and attention to detail. Each gastronomic encounter is a different experience that combines two elements: the highest level of quality and the tranquil environment of a small Andalusian village. Guests may enjoy lunch in the church square, dinner overlooking the olive groves, a gourmet tasting session or a romantic meal under the stars – there are dishes and scenarios to suit every taste.  www.barcelolabobadilla.com

ining at home is an exceedingly pleasurable experience and one that can be every bit as stylish and elegant as you wish. After all, the main aim of dinner parties is to catch up with friends and family in a welcoming and private setting, sharing existing memories while also creating new ones.

Sarah Ward, homeware designer and founder of the Posh Trading Company, and her

team appreciate that special gatherings should have a sense of occasion. Most importantly, they require an equally special seating arrangement, hence ‘The Curve’ 10-seater dining table and chairs from Sarah’s home range. The set comes in a gorgeous walnut finish and is more than simply a piece of functional furniture; it's a statement piece in its own right and creates the perfect centrepiece to a room. The throne-like chairs that surround the table add a sense of grandeur to the set.

Opal opulence Renowned for his exquisite taste and eye for transforming stones into artistic creations, Martin Katz founded his company in 1988. Since then, Katz creations have adorned celebrities such as Sandra Bullock, Nicole Kidman, Sally Field, Barbra Streisand, Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Aniston, Johnny Depp and Colin Firth.

Bows take a bow

The distinctly feminine bow motif can be traced back to 17th century European jewellery design. Over the years, Graff Diamonds has incorporated many bow motifs into its jewellery pieces; the House design was originally created to appear three dimensional, to reflect the organic movement of the classic subject. Now, unveiling an elegant new collection of jewels showcasing the motif, the Graff bow depicts multiple layers of diamonds, beautifully designed and set as if the strands are tied by hand. This superb shape is created by setting sculpted rows of tapered baguette diamonds alongside pave diamonds, which curve and dome to create a life-like voluminous bow. This motif has been translated throughout several necklace and earring designs incorporating the finest diamonds and exceptional gemstones. POA  www.graffdiamonds.com

Turkish delight Inspiration for Lydia Courteille’s new jewellery collection has been taken from the sumptuous Topkapi Palace in Istanbul. It stems from the great love story of Roxelana and Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent of the vast and powerful Ottoman Empire, and extends to the famous Iznik ceramics decorated with black Halfeti roses and brilliant red tulips, symbol of Turkey. Twenty pieces form this collection, ranging from rings and earrings to cuffs and a tiara, all set with beautiful jewels mimicking the faience tiles of Iznik that cover the Topkapi Palace walls and harem. The 18K black rhodium gold cuff shown here is festooned with tourmaline, opals, aquamarines, rubies, tsavorites, sapphires, and diamonds. £87,300 / €98,000 / $106,675  www.lydiacourteille.com

The Royal Crown Derby Porcelain Company was established in 1750 and now employs around 200 skilled craftspeople. It manufactures the highest quality English fine bone china at its factory on a four and a half acre site in Derby, England. The present factory was established in 1878 and Queen Victoria granted permission to include the title ‘Royal’ in the company name 12 years later. For collectors of exceptional pieces of artwork and artisanship, Royal Crown Derby’s Artistry Vases prove an ideal choice.

In full bloom

‘Floral Eden’, Wedgwood’s new hand-painted bone china collection, is inspired by the vibrant world of horticulture. Its origins can be found within the Wedgwood family’s links to the Royal Horticultural Society. As founder Josiah Wedgwood’s grandson, John Wedgwood was expected to take up a career which maintained the legacy of his family’s leading ceramic business. Against this predetermined course was John’s private passion for botany and horticulture. Putting his passion to good use whilst maintaining his links with the company, John Wedgwood became a founding member of the Royal Horticultural Society. The Floral Eden collection takes its inspiration from botanicals and flowers found within the RHS Botanical Gardens and collected by John Wedgwood. Blooms feature those found within a typical English country garden including periwinkle, freesia and geranium. The collection is made and hand-painted in Wedgwood’s factory at Barlaston, England and includes a teapot, sugar and creamer all in fine bone china. Accompanying these are teacup, saucer and coupe plate sets, featuring the country garden blooms together with climbing plants clematis, passion flower and wisteria.

Winter Exhibition

The Plus One Gallery opens at its new location in the vast Battersea Reach complex with an exhibition of works of art cementing its reputation as a home of Hyperrealism. Located near the emerging cultural quarter that will surround the new US Embassy at Nine Elms, the works will appeal not only to investors, collectors and interior designers looking for statement works of art as botanical and flower painting makes a comeback. Dutch Golden Age painters of the 17th century excelled in flower painting where, despite the intense realism, blooms from very different seasons were depicted as bouquets. Following in this tradition and now on show at the gallery is Lake Placid Bouquet, by Ben Schonzeit, where flowers from different seasons are shown in a vase in front of an imaginary evening landscape. Other works include The British Pound, a piece made of salvaged wood by a Dutch sculptor Diederick Kraaijeveld and bronze sculpture, i-people, by Paul Day. Among the 25 artists on show, three have works represented in the National Portrait Gallery - Craig Wylie, Philip Harris and Andrew Tift. From January 25th to February 24th, 2017 at the Plus One Gallery, London, UK

Isamu Noguchi enjoys a rare and privileged status as an artist being the architect of his personal museum. In 1980, he acquired a disused gas works in New York and transformed it into a gallery space devoted to his sculptures, drawings and designs. No doubt the Noguchi Museum has helped to promulgate his fame and he is now considered as among the most innovative American sculptors of the 20th century. Noguchi's inspiration came from far and wide, from the art of the ancient world from Egyptian pyramids to Buddhist temples, Zen gardens and American Indian burial mounds. The 74 works on show at the Smithsonian's American Art Museum, most on loan from the New York museum, will further boost this reputation.

Items range from 8th century Syrian to 17th century Ottoman manuscripts, many on show for the first time outside Turkey. Visitors can learn the stories behind these extraordinary works, how the Qur'an was transformed from its origins as a spoken book into magnificent manuscripts illuminated by highly skilled artists from all over the Islamic world. These works were cherished by the powerful rulers who ordered them and used as both gifts and to gain religious merit. Following the fall of the Ottoman Empire in 1914, many Qur'ans were collected into the Istanbul Museum yet its holdings are little known even to many experts according to Julian Raby director of the Sackler Gallery. This is thus an unparalleled opportunity to appreciate the artistry of Muslim scribes and

ased in the Chelsea Design Quarter, Maurizio Pellizzoni is well known for his personal approach to interior design and architecture. Here, he shares his expertise on the colours, patterns, materials and key styles for 2017. “We will see a more sophisticated and elegant style, whilst simultaneously injecting something more personal into the space. The shift towards luxury will move from what has been a generic use of high-end pieces to spaces that have a unique touch as a result of personalising them. “Developing the artisan trend of 2016, this also mirrors a new approach to craftsmanship. Increasingly, clients are starting to request a unique look for their homes and interiors as a personal reflection of their lifestyle and

an extension to their personalities and also in the form of wellbeing as a place to escape to. “Organic, natural colours and patterns relating to nature will be prominent as we move away from recent years reflecting austerity. This palette will work beautifully as we see a move towards combining earthy muted colour schemes with jewel tones and materials such as leather and bronze. “Natural patterns will dominate from earthy foliage, gentle contours in natural materials such as stone, to animal prints, as these patterns and textures descend from the catwalk into our homes. These will take form in accessorising with cushions or rugs for example, but they can also create the wow factor when using them in upholstery or window dressings. “The use of warm materials such as terracotta and burnished metals will also become more prevalent. Bringing warmth into interior schemes using the trend for velvet will also continue to be an influence and ties in well with the demand for the style of new elegance.”

Sense of space

Sneha Divias Atelier is a Dubai based boutique interior architecture studio committed to design excellence and sound execution focusing on residential, hospitality and commercial projects. It creates architecture and design experiences that are clean and balanced yet luxuriously detailed. The studio’s director, Sneha Divias, feels that lounges can be very prolific and versatile as the main living and social area in any project. “The space planning is very important,” she stresses, “and it should cater to the client’s needs – how many people need to be seated, what kind of seating serves the purpose, is visibility to a TV or other feature important from all angles? These aspects should be considered as well as the connection and flow from this room to the adjacent ones as we can have isolated lounge areas for reading, relaxing or contemplation or we can have open plans where this area is connected to the dining or kitchen.”

Sneha likes to introduce interesting features such as customised bar cabinets, fireplaces and metal screens. “These help to achieve the required flow and allow us to build an identity of its own. For this, it is fundamental to understand if the purpose is mainly relaxing, entertaining, reading, cinema room. We also consider the cultural context as in the Middle East we have a lot of clients who require separate lounges for men and women, the ‘majlis’. “Our studio consistently strives to create an exquisite and interesting experience for the users, a space that feels custom made to our client’s needs and that covers all the practical aspects of everyday living.” Regarding the colour scheme, Sneha usually prefers to keep the materials and fabrics neutral and textured for a timeless design proposition which can be accented with artwork, accessories, some colourful patterns to add dynamic. “Lighting is extremely important,” she explains, “so we make sure we have clean and well located architectural lighting as well as interesting low level lighting such as floor and table lamps for different lighting scenarios.” Sneha Divias Atelier t: +971561169004; e: sneha@snehadivias.com w: www.snehadivias.com International Property & Travel

Based in Surrey and founded by Susan White, iggi Interior Design offers a bespoke service tailored to a given brief. Using the latest furniture, fabrics, wall coverings and accessories the company delivers effective solutions from concept through to installation. This particular project by iggi Interior Design was for clients who had relocated from New York and settled in Notting Hill, London. Susan explains, “As the clients are quite big entertainers, the brief was to utilise the space so that guests/family could quite easily interact with each other. They were also after quirky and intricate pieces, so it was all about the finishes that made it feel like home to them.

“Our clients wanted a conversational area so we zoned the lounge off by placing a big U-shaped sofa in front of the fireplace allowing an area for socialising. The footstool features finishes of tiger eye with a silk trim, while the sofa has an added diamond button detail. This detailing can be seen clearly both from the hallway and on entering the living room.” Tonal silk rugs and accessories such as quirky drums and a side table were featured in the room to add the desired detail and character and represent the clients’ personalities. “Black beaded, padded fabric panels were used for the acoustic walls as we wanted to give the room depth and interest. These also served as a blank canvas to enable the clients to feature their artwork. “All lights were made of silk and horn droplets making the room look stunning, while a Lutron/Creston system allows lighting, blinds and curtains to be adjusted to set the mood at particular times of the day.” 

Launched in 2010, Exclusive Aircraft Sales was built by a group of senior aviation professionals from around the world. It has representatives in the UK, USA, South Africa, Australia and a head office in London’s Mayfair. This gives the company the ability to provide its clients with global reach as well as a local service.

Quick, convenient and incredibly versatile, helicopters are a great way to travel Michael McCartney, director and owner of Exclusive Aircraft Sales, explains, “We provide our customers with a wealth of knowledge and experience when buying or selling in the aviation sector. We concentrate primarily in aircraft sales and lease with a team of dedicated charter brokers that handle VIP passengers, time critical freight and all VIP helicopter transport requirements.” The company’s helicopters include Agusta Westland (Leonardo) and Airbus Helicopters (Eurocopter) from Europe, Bell Helicopter and Sikorsky Aircraft, from the USA and Mil Helicopters from Russia. “These are the strongest international brands and the most desired aircraft by our clientele,” says Mr McCartney. “They are not really built for range with our units maxing out at approximately 740 miles (for the AW139 helicopter). However, they get our passengers to their destination faster and easier than any other form of transport within their range capabilities. “The benefits of ownership of a helicopter is simply that you can go where like, whenever you like. Our clients buy them to increase the quality of their life by giving them more time to spend doing the things they like instead of being stuck in traffic for hours in a car. Our helicopters range in cost from £500,000 to £15 million plus. “The cost of operation very much depends on how much you use it, where it is based, its age, if it is twin engine or single engine.”

Balearic Helicopters, was set up in Mallorca by its chief pilot Jonny Greenall who has been flying there for over 16 years. “Basically, we tend to match the helicopter for the job requested with either charter or buying,” he explains. “There are many different regulations we need to abide by and also we need to ensure the correct helicopter for the job. “For charter - the information we need would be the amount of passengers (and luggage, if any), time and date of flight and location (to – from), and of course, the customer’s budget. For example, if you want to charter a helicopter to fly over water or at night, then regulations dictate that it must be a twin engine helicopter. If you want to fly from your house to, say, a race course then it can be a single engine helicopter. Naturally – a twin engine helicopter is a lot more expensive that a single engine.” Buying presents the same type of considerations. “It is a question of what you want to do with it,” says Mr Greenall. “Is it your toy to sit in the garden so you can fly personally for fun or do you want to use the helicopter for a daily business commute? “The ‘entry level’ helicopter is the Robinson R44, a single engine, four-seater. It is one of the world’s most popular models for both teaching and owning. Basically it is a flying car, piston engine aircraft. It has about a three-hour range,

speed of 125mph, and can fly around 350 miles between refuelling. Ownership costs are cheap (relatively in the helicopter world), as are maintenance and operating costs and to buy one new is less than $500,000. “On the other hand you could buy a brand new Agusta A109, which seats up to eight people. This twin engine, fully automated helicopter flies at 180 mph for over 530 miles with prices around $8 million. And, of course, there is a choice of anything in between!”

RACING START

expected for bidding For the first time in over a decade, a 1934 Alfa Romeo Tipo B P3 will come under the hammer, courtesy of RM Sotheby’s Paris sale on February 8th, 2017. The Alfa Romeo P3 racing cars are regarded as among the first of the highly-focused, narrow centre line ‘slipper’ bodied, open-wheeled Grand Prix cars. The were one of the first European designs to shun the ‘one plus one’ seating of previous Grand Prix cars designed to carry ride-in mechanics. The Tipo B P3 is one of Alfa Romeo’s most significant models, rated by many as the most beautiful and effective racing car of its era. Launched in 1931, it experienced instant success in Grand Prix competition, taking first place at Monza and a 1-2-3 in both the French and the German Grand Prix. Part-way through the season, Alfa Romeo fell bankrupt during the Great Depression but the racing team was salvaged by Scuderia Ferrari, which took over the running of the cars, enjoying continued success in 1932. This 1934 Alfa Romeo Tipo B P3, chassis no 50006, is the second of only nine Second Series cars made. It is also one of just three IFS Dubonnet front axle and reversed-quarter-elliptic rear spring cars produced; a technical aspect of particular importance to the well-informed connoisseur. Presented in highly original condition, well-documented and with full FIA papers, 50006 certainly defines the word ‘historic’. Estimated at €3.6m – €4.6m  www.rmsothebys.com

Classic Ferrari specialists

undertake incredible restoration

In 1960 Scaglietti revealed the 250 GT California Spyder SWB at Geneva. Thanks to the work of importer Luigi Chinetti, the USA became a very important market, and based on an idea from John Von Neumann (the west coast representative), the California Spyder was born. Just 106 cars were built, nine of them with aluminum bodies and all in ‘convertible’ design; but only one of them in right hand drive – Chassis # 2591. In October 2013, the classic Ferrari experts GTO Engineering began work on this California Spyder. The restoration was particularly complex, as so much was incorrect on the car due to a previous restoration done by electrical engineers who, although undoubtedly competent, were not marque knowledgeable and had included many ‘modifications’. GTO Engineering went to great lengths to get the bodywork and all the mechanicals correct. All the incorrect hardware, panels and mechanical components were replaced with correct parts, and the car was restored to its original splendour. The result was a stunningly beautiful SWB right hand drive California Spyder as correct as it left the factory. The car was displayed in the exclusive Windsor Concours of Elegance, held inside Windsor Castle last September. GTO Engineering UK t: +44 (0)118 940 1101; USA t: +1 424 303 7005

The magic of Mayfair and its exclusive surrounding areas never fail to cast a spell over the most discerning home-buyers

ayfair is a rarified area away from the City which attracts private banks and hedge fund managers and boasts some of the capital’s most exclusive shops, five-star hotels, restaurants and clubs. But how easy is it to make the dream of living there become a reality? Simon Barnes, managing director at H. Barnes & Co, warns, “On paper it seems you are well prepared to find and buy the perfect Mayfair property, but this is not a game of Monopoly and it will take more than a roll of the dice and money in the bank to find and secure your ideal home.” Never have the words ‘location, location, location’ been more crucial than in Mayfair.

“Over the past 20 years,” says Mr Barnes, “much of the district has become commercial, with many offices occupying converted houses, new buildings, major corporate headquarters, embassies and hotels. Consequently, the amount of prime residential property is seriously limited, only those with a trained eye will know where to look. “Unlike Belgravia with its identical rows of Georgian terraces and repeated stucco fronted houses, Mayfair with capacious grand style houses is truly unique. Previously these cavernous houses were only of interest to Arab or Greek buyers. More recently there has been a shift in demand for huge houses of 10,000 square feet and international buyers, International Property & Travel

including wealthy Russians come to Mayfair on a quest wanting ‘big’. “The scarcity and individuality of residences along with their particular location within a given street makes it more difficult to buy the right house in the right place. Rarely is money or time a key motivator when looking to buy here, it really is a waiting game and knowing where to find the hidden gems. The trend to sell off and convert mews houses over the years has not escaped Mayfair, so again knowing where to find these prized houses still in possession of their own mews is something of a skill.” Mr Barnes also points out that in Mayfair far fewer houses are similar, unlike those found in Knightsbridge, consequently values are harder to work out because there is less ‘like for like’ and far less turnover. Jo Eccles, managing director of Sourcing Property, comments, “Mayfair architecture is so varied, and that’s a lovely quality that it has over other areas which includes tall town houses, lateral apartments, incredible ‘Tardis’ style houses, and some of the apartment blocks have hidden communal gardens which don’t even show up on a standard map. Our Mayfair clients tend to be divided into two types: those from ‘old money’ backgrounds and those from ‘new money’, such as someone who has had a very successful career in finance, or sold a business recently.” In conclusion, Caspar Harvard-Walls, partner at independent property buying agency, Black Brick, says, “Mayfair was made the most expensive piece on the Monopoly board for a reason, but by the mid 1990s it had been superseded by Belgravia and Knightsbridge. Much of this was due to the fact that many of the residential buildings had been converted into offices and embassies and, as a result, the area had become soulless. “However, the turnaround has been sharp, led by the late Duke of Westminster who owned 30% of Mayfair. The number of restaurants, members’ clubs and designer retail are all on the increase and combined with some luxury new build developments, Mayfair is a much more desirable and up market destination. Mayfair has regained its soul and, from a property perspective, its position as the prime spot on the Monopoly board once more.” 78

O

ne of London’s finest fivestar hotels, The Stafford founded in 1912, offers its guests a quintessentially English atmosphere. This is complemented by a longstanding team of experienced staff, all of whom are attentive but never intrusive. There are 105 individually designed rooms and suites from which to choose your preferred style of accommodation. The Main House is a blend of Victorian grandeur and modern comfort, while the Carriage House offers a distinctly countryside ambiance. The Mews Suites and Penthouse are the epitome of contemporary elegance, providing the discretion and ease of a private residence at

86

one of London’s most prestigious addresses. As for dining, the hotel’s Lyttelton restaurant, named after the late Princess Diana’s ancestors who owned the property when it was a private house, offers sumptuous menus featuring seasonal produce. There are so many points of interest in an establishment of this nature but The American Bar should definitely not be missed. Every available wall and surface is full of artefacts and signed celebrity photographs from patrons and guests spanning many decades. However, the most intriguing guest must surely have been Nancy Wake, a highly decorated war heroine who worked in the French Resistance and stayed at the hotel regularly. Known as The White Mouse by the Nazis as she could never be caught, a cocktail of the same name dedicated to her memory proves hugely popular in very bar she frequented. The Stafford wine cellars are also part of the wider history of the hotel. Built in the 17th century by Lord Francis Godolphin and used as an air-raid shelter in World War II, they now contain up to 8,000 bottles of wine as well as an array of wartime artefacts. These include a collection of posters and newspaper clippings from around the world, featuring articles on the ongoing war. The wine cellars host all manner of events including private dinners, receptions and of course wine tasting with Master Sommelier, Gino Nardella.  www.thestaffordlondon.com

nce all the Christmas festivities are over and the decorations have been packed away for another year the next few months can seem rather dull. That is of course unless you have a winter holiday to look forward to – maybe with the added bonus of having your very own apartment or chalet tucked away on a snowy mountainside. The Swiss Alps seem like a good place to start looking for that ideal property. Rob Keddy of Investors in Property says, “At the moment our wealthiest clients are more interested in Switzerland than France and Austria. This is partly down to the current economic instability surrounding Brexit, as once again the Swiss Franc has shown itself as the strongest European currency. This has also increased the number of investors looking to gain Swiss residency and purchasing a property is often the first step. The main reason is down to the general quality and prestige of Swiss properties. New projects like the Garden Golf development in Crans Montana and the Rosalp in Verbier offer on-site luxury spas, gourmet restaurants, five-star hotel style services and, in the case of the former, a nine-hole golf course.” Over in Gstaad, there are apartments and chalets both for sale and rent across mid to high price brackets. Manoutcher Khanlari, chairman of John Taylor Gstaad, says, "The market has been fairly flat at the top-end in 2016, particularly for the very exclusive properties. However, there has been steady activity in the medium range, especially in the sale of apartments within the 2m – 4m CHF bracket. Throughout 2016, the rental market has performed solidly, with rental yields achieving from 2% in many instances.” Mr Khanlari explains that the Gstaad market is primarily driven by second home owners and investors who are putting a lot 92

of money into new construction projects. To date, Brexit has had little effect on the activity of British buyers in Gstaad and John Taylor is seeing a steady flow of British buyers showing interest in the area, particularly in the rental market. “We have seen a significant influx of Middle Eastern buyers over the past few years,” reports Mr Khanlari, “most of which are second home owners, which has given a different dimension to the market. Middle Eastern buyers and investors are present in different areas of Switzerland but due to the calibre of the resort, Gstaad is the most popular. These Middle Eastern buyers are attracted to the resort primarily because they really love the summer season here. It is a really beautiful resort that maintains its traditional architecture and culture which many other resorts seem to have lost over the years.” The turnkey market is fairly active in Gstaad and dominated by high-end foreign buyers looking for second homes in Switzerland. “They are usually developed by local investors and architects and are attractive to buyers as they can request a certain level of specification to suit their tastes and requirements,” says Mr Khanlari. “Prices for this type of property can be anything from 10 million to 30 million CHF. “Buyers at the very top end of the market usually look for properties with their own spa areas. This would usually include a swimming pool, Jacuzzi and sauna as a minimum requirement. Entertaining is also very important to these high-end buyers so many look for properties with cinema rooms and party rooms. At the moment, prices in Gstaad are high, our clients are attracted to this niche market for the assured long term capital appreciation of their investments.” International Property & Travel

There are so many superb ski destinations in the States that it’s very difficult to know which ones to highlight in just a few pages. However, Aspen is one of the all time greats and has four ski mountains – Aspen, Highlands, Buttermilk and Snowmass. These four resorts are each very different but between them have terrain to suit all preferences and abilities. Aspen Mountain has excellent intermediate and advanced terrain which runs into the heart of the town. Snowmass resort sits 15 minutes’ shuttle away at the other end of the four mountains, offering large and varied terrain with a ski-in, ski-out village popular with families. Aspen has its own airport (commercial and private) and international flights come into Denver a 200 mile, 3.5 hour drive away. Krista Klees of Palladium Properties says, “The Aspen market draws worldwide clientele attracted to the unique micro-niche of world-class skiing, culture, nightlife, and dynamic lifestyle that makes Aspen known all over the world. The draw of Aspen in the winter results in nearly every type of rental to be booked up and nearly every home occupied, especially during the holiday weeks. “Condos like the Downtown Aspen are perfect for someone looking for a quick, ultra-convenient place to land between ski runs for a good value. Also, close proximity reduces/eliminates need to fuss with a rental car in the winter weather. Aspen Highlands is quieter than downtown, perfect for someone who wants a no-nonsense ski vacation. The other homes are better for someone who desires a luxurious sanctuary with a bit more privacy and space, yet still wishes for quick access to the hustle and bustle of downtown Aspen and is willing to pay a premium for it.” Over in Idaho, Ketchum and Sun Valley prove popular choices, not just for winter sports but also for year-round activities. Suzanne Finch Williams, owner/broker of Sun Valley Real Estate, an affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate, says, “As an all season destination Ketchum appeals to Americans no matter what time of the year it is and in particular to buyers from New York, Florida, Washington and California who want the ultimate holiday home which is just a short flight away. They are also attracted to the quaint and charming feel of the town which allows an escape from busy, cosmopolitan cities such as Miami and Los Angeles. “There is currently a secure and stable market in Ketchum/Sun Valley with the average price of a luxury home ranging between $5 to $20 million. Now is also a good time to buy, as Ketchum is seeing investment and growth with the opening of two new hotels including The Limelight Hotel, which opened in December, and Auberge which is set to open in 2019.” 96

t is widely believed that this particular area of South Africa has one of the world’s most spectacular drives. By hopping in the car and exploring this 200 kilometre stretch of road you will pass forested mountains, sprawling wetlands and white-sand beaches with picturesque towns dotted no more than a 45-minute drive apart. Mike Greeff, CEO of Greeff Properties, an exclusive affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate, says, “The Garden Route, fondly known as ‘Garden of Eden’ is known for its splendour and unparalleled beauty. Apart from being a popular travel destination, extraordinary real estate opportunities are to be had all along this coastal stretch. There is something here for everyone, from beach homes and villas to security estates set on mountain slopes, amid lush golf courses, and that’s just for starters.” Looking first at Knysa and Plettenberg Bay, Ling Dobson, Pam Golding Properties area principal in these locations, notes a marked increase in interest for both areas. “Leisure Isle stock is at a premium in Knysa,” she says. “Houses are being snapped up and refurbished, hugely enhancing values. In Plettenberg Bay we are seeing the high-end sales up to R 32 million. The most exciting areas are the security estates of Whale

Rock, Brackenridge as well as some highend gentleman’s estates and all direct beach properties demand their premiums.” Over in George, Stephen Murray, Pam Golding Properties manager for this particular area, reports that most byers are coming from up-country (Gauteng) and the Western Cape. He thinks this is due to their wish for a change in lifestyle. “They want their families to live in this desirable part of the country and they are able to do business ‘remotely’,” explains Mr Murray. “George offers an airport (making it easier to commute), perception of crime free environment plays a role, and there are good schools and hospital facilities.” Gated estates are hugely popular for a sense of security. “Vacant land in these estates has been the majority of transactions and where there is still vacant stand stock left in the gated estates these will continue to sell,” says Mr Murray. “As vacant land becomes more scarce in these gated estates the land prices will go up in certain instances – the only counter to this is the building costs, which if they continue increasing too quickly it may apply pressure on the land prices. “In these gated estates we anticipate that there will be some homes that will come on the market towards the middle of this year (currently there is a shortage) where some homes have been developed for an end user market buyer who doesn’t want to go through the building process. Gated estates will remain popular and are not as sensitive to price changes/economic conditions when compared to the general urban market.”

South Africa’s Garden Route offers a range of vegetation, wildlife and outdoor activities and is famed for its natural beauty. Serving as the gateway to this region’s wine route is the Jakkalsvlei Private Cellar

The Jonker family has been proud owners of Jakkalsvlei since 1972 and today it’s farmed by Jakkalsvlei t: +27 28 735 2061 f: +27 86 593 0123 e: info@jakkalsvlei.co.za w: www.jakkalsvlei.co.za

the third generation of Jonkers. The estate was named Jakkalsvlei (Jackal’s Marsh) because of all the jackals and foxes that can be seen roaming the mountains surrounding the farmland. Although steeped in history, the farm today provides a modern, state-of-the-art tasting room and restaurant. Renowned chef Thomas Potgieter oversees the kitchen and is known for serving dishes with a traditional South African flair. With breathtaking valley and mountain views, the restaurant also presents some of the best sunsets that the Southern Hemisphere has to offer. The farm’s 34-hectare vineyard is situated at the foot of the Langeberg mountains. The combination of the southern and northern slopes of the mountains as well as the close proximity to the ocean leads to the vineyards’ temperate climate and this, along with the restrictive soil, are key ingredients in growing the farm’s high-quality grapes. Jakkalsvlei is known for producing wines of rare depth, longevity and elegance and this is mirrored in its award status at the Michelangelo International Wine Awards, as well as at one of the oldest wine shows in the world – the SA Young Wine Show. Visitors may now experience the true taste of South Africa’s Garden Route for themselves at Jakkalsvlei’s multiaward-winning cellar. 

Different ways to explore the Garden Route 1. Drive all the way from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth

The overall distance is 769 km, so you need to like driving! This is a very interesting trip, but it should not be hurried. The whole idea is that you take your time so that you can appreciate the beautiful scenery and stop off at interesting places along the way – such as Hermanus, Swellendam, Wilderness, Knysna, Plettenberg Bay and Storms River.

2. Drive from Cape Town to Knysna/Plettenberg Bay

K

nown for its spectacular coastline, the Garden Route lies along South Africa’s southern coast between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth. It starts at Mossel Bay in the west and stretches 200 km to Tsitsikamma National Park in the east. It is one of South Africa’s most popular destinations and offers fantastic holiday opportunities, with stunning scenery and great activities and accommodation. Yellow Zebra Safaris advises that a favourite stretch of the route is between George and Storms River, which is by Tsitsikamma National Park. There are some lovely places to stay along the way and numerous things to see and do. Knysna is set on an exquisite lagoon, while Plettenberg Bay is equally attractive with fabulous sandy beaches and the Robberg Peninsula just a few kilometres away. There is some splendid walking, cycling and hiking in the forests between Knysna and Plettenberg Bay – you can also kayak or canoe along the rivers or lagoons or play a round of golf on one of the area’s many courses. There are beautiful birds to be spotted, while whales and dolphins can be seen between July and November. For the more adventurous, there is one of the highest bungee jumps in the world and a zip ride through the tree canopy of the Tsitsikamma Forest. 114

This is extremely popular – the drive takes about five to six hours. However, if you don’t want to drive this in one day, you can break your journey by overnighting at Swellendam. This is a lovely little town with some very attractive Cape Dutch buildings. Although there are many lovely places to stay, Knysna and Plettenberg Bay are very beautiful and there are also lots of things to do within easy reach. When you have finished your holiday, you can drop your car at George Airport and either fly back to Cape Town or on to Johannesburg.

3. Drive from Cape Town to the George area along the coastal route, then back to Cape Town along the inland route on the famous Route 62

It is slightly longer and slower (it takes approximately one hour more than the coastal route), but views of the fabulous mountain scenery and the Little Karoo desert make it well worthwhile. This trip can be done in either order – going up the inland route to George and returning by the coastal route or the reverse. www.yellowzebrasafaris.com

nown as ‘The City of Dreams’, Dubai offers everything from the world’s largest mall to the world’s tallest building at 828 metres high. Tourists flock to marvel at this futuristic destination in the Arabian desert which has become the most populous city in the United Arab Emirates. Naturally, with this level of interest, the demand for residential properties is incredibly high. Farhad Azizi, CEO of Azizi Developments, comments, “In 2015, approximately 25,000 units were expected to come to the market but only 9,000 units were available by the third-quarter. If this trend continues, demand will surpass supply and prices will continue to increase. Ahead of the EXPO 2020, the value of properties purchased in 2016 can reach unprecedented heights. “Following months of speculation over global issues such as the fall in oil prices, the increase in rental values combined with the sheer number of property purchases from international investors have led the market towards stability and growth. Considering Dubai is one of the fastest-growing cities in the world and the success of our recent project launches, we are confident in Dubai’s real estate and property market. This city has been and will continue to be the regional real estate hub, generating lucrative results for those that see its potential.” International Property & Travel

   centre of the Austrian city of Salzburg, Rehrlplatz is a mixed residential and commercial development encompassing 5,655m² in a very prominent location. The design was opened in 2011 to anonymous competition with 26 national and international architects participating. The jury was composed of representatives from the Salzburg architectural advisory board, the expert commission of the historic centre, city administration staff and independent jury members. The final winning design was by Storch, Ehlers Partner from Hannover in Germany. The aim was to create a vibrant, innovative development with a diverse combination of

different apartment sizes and layouts whilst also incorporating high quality office space, medical practices and retail areas. Winding through the development are open spaces and greenery. Salzburg is a city rooted in history, and the design of Rehrlplatz reacts to the surrounding urban buildings – from the traditional period buildings in Arenbergstrasse and 19th century neoclassical Grunderzeit villas to a nearby 1980s hospital complex. The result is a development that makes use of varying heights, angles, openings and greens to bring modern architectural tropes to a setting spanning multiple eras. Silhouettes of historic buildings are echoed in the facades of the new.

The apartments feature open kitchens, large roof terraces and many different layouts to create a sense of individuality. A metropolitan feeling is engendered through high-quality, smooth renderings with a warm and friendly character. Large windows create airiness, making the most of light during the course of the day. Flooring choices include custom oak in the clients’ choice of colour and exclusive tiling in bathrooms and corridors. Underfloor heating creates warmth and a cosy feeling throughout while smart home systems bring technology to the fore. Bathing areas are fitted with hardware and plumbing from Duravit and Dornbracht. In the lobbies, staircases use Artico, an Italian white granite that blends brightness,

modernity and sophistication. Two storeys of underground parking provide ample space for residents, with elevators directly to each floor. The penthouses require specific keycards, ensuring security. Sustainability was a watchword in construction, utilising the superior heat and sound insulation of stone wool throughout. This maximises thermal efficiency and is a carbon-negative material that recovers the energy used for manufacture in just a few days. High quality window installations also contribute to energy efficiency. Rehrlplatz will bring a breath of fresh air to Salzburg, attracting modern families and owners to this contemporary and desirable development.

-E A is a global practice established in 1960 offering a complete range of related services. The company has been hugely successful in winning awards for the following five projects. ‘Artesis’ is a new iconographic campus for 3,500 students. It includes houses, nine halls, 49 standard classrooms, 57 specifically equipped classrooms, 12 computer rooms, a 900m library and a cafeteria. The location formed an important influencing factor on the design as the project literally nestles in its surroundings. The slope of the adjacent Park Spoor Noord is part of the public domain but also covers the private areas of the campus. The building therefore ‘slides’ underneath the park slope, creating a layered urban spatial experience. The overhang of the volume above the park slope safeguards its open perspective and at 25 metres at its widest, is completely column-free. ‘Barco one Campus’, a new headquarters building for Barco visual technology company,

has been given international appeal by JaspersEyers Architects. This circular, transparent icon will serve as a connective element for the tech giant’s employees and visitors. It spans 75 metres in diameter and 25 metres tall and has a surface area of 30,000m. In addition to office spaces, Barco one Campus also houses research and development spaces, a demonstration space, an auditorium, and a company restaurant for the 1,500 campus employees and international visitors. It serves as an important central point as well as the connective element between the various parts of the site. ‘Toison d’Or’ has become a new urban icon in the centre of Brussels. This ultra-modern complex with nine floors above ground and four floors underground provides over 13,000m of commercial space and 15,000m of contemporary residential units. The architects integrated different functions in a carefully considered way, so that the project creates enormous added value, both of itself and in relation to its surroundings. The organic

contours of the enormous V-shaped portals which extend across the facades constitute an important part of the structure whilst also functioning as a visual element linking the lower commercial levels to the residential floors above. ‘Tour Paradis’ is a 52,947m administrative centre especially designed for the Ministry of Finances and allows for more than 1,100 people to work effectively in one location. The 136-metre high building accommodates 28,700m of office space and 9,600m of various spaces, some open to the general public, 20 front offices, various meeting rooms, a restaurant and archives. While the Tour Paradis has been ideally designed to accommodate a single occupant, the architects have also created a flexible real estate

investment that could accommodate a series of smaller occupants in the future. The 30,000m² office building for the European Parliament had to comply with the regulations of the Blue Book of Europe. The building needed a fresh architectural expression, it had to integrate well with its surroundings and to perform well above average regarding energy consumption. Integration with its surroundings was the greatest challenge for the building as there were different demands on all four sides. Architecturally, the dynamic expression of the entire complex was the main focus. This is reflected in the curved volumes in play with the ratio between open and closed parts of the façade, depending on the orientation and the entry of light into the building.

  , Duomo is a wellestablished architecture and design company based in Verona, Italy. Its award-winning interior design project relates to a private residence located near the village of Forest Town in the suburbs of Moscow in Russia. The client required an outstanding design for the spacious property in which he would host many guest receptions. The house is on a 35,000m plot of land and has a living area of 570m. It features a separate house for guards and other staff, a guest house, spa, tennis court, lake and forest park.

The building’s facades were inspired by the heritage of the Japanese architect Arata Isozaki while all interiors were created under influence of the architecture of Veneto, a beautiful region in North-East Italy, and villas constructed by the architect Andrea Palladio. All elements of the interior design were chosen and made according to the vision and direction of the architects at Duomo. These important features included everything from sculptures and the decoration of walls and ceilings to decorative moldings and forged metal products.

-O   were inspired by the Radisson Blu hotel group’s motto, ‘iconic, stylish, sophisticated’, when commissioned to rebrand the hotel Radisson Blu Leogrand Chisinau. The main design criteria was to integrate the new corporate identity while preserving the characteristics of the existing building, formerly known as Leogrand Hotel & Convention Centre and constructed and owned by SUMMA. The award-winning renovation and restoration project involved an eight-storey building with 16,000m of enclosed space. The areas for redesign included all 143 rooms and suites, three restaurants, a pub, wine shop, spa-fitness and beauty centre, six meeting rooms and a convention centre. Tumer-Onaran carefully blended its design

process with the client’s wish to preserve the successful elements of its existing branding as well as the hotel’s public recognition level locally. Therefore the company adopted the key phrase ‘embedded memories hidden in a contemporary approach’ throughout the renovation process. While some material selections and the colour palette refer to previous perceptions of the hotel’s interiors, other design factors add strong, contemporary impressions by redefining the lobby, all day dining and bar area. Favoured elements of the previous Leogrand have also been preserved such as the ‘wine harvest’ painting, stained glass art works and the main layout of the function areas to great effect. Striking a transitional balance between the old and the new has perfectly matched the client brief.

 C A, based in the Lake District National Park, designs innovative, elegant, sustainable architecture. Established in 2001, the company has brought together talented architects and designers who endeavour to make design and construction an enjoyable and exciting experience for clients. Gilpin Hotel & Lake House are owned and run by the Cunliffe family in the heart of the Lake District. Purchased 29 years ago by John and Christine Cunliffe, Gilpin has now grown into an internationally recognised luxury five star hotel with a Michelin starred restaurant. Gilpin’s expansion over the last 15 years has been overseen by the couple’s son, Ben Cunliffe, founder of the aforementioned architectural practice and estates director at the hotel.

The principal requirement of the brief for the award winning lodges was for striking, unique and innovative accommodation of the highest standard. Coupled with the need for more spa facilities at Gilpin, the concept of developing lodges, each with their own individual spa treatment area was born. The challenge was to ensure the five lodges felt part of the hotel and its grounds, whilst providing an aesthetic that would prove contemporary, elegant and low-key. The lodges adopted a simple Yin and Yang form with softly curving walls ensuring a natural cohesion to their meadow setting. The façade materials are reflections of the contextual landscape ensuring the visual impact of the lodges is minimal.

With extensive experience both in the UK and overseas, the Lake District-based designer has gained international recognition for her work on hotel and hospitality, government and residential schemes. Sarah’s signature style blends the classical with the contemporary and her consistent delivery of stunning designs that combine sophistication with practicality caught the eye of the Gilpin Hotel’s owners 15 years ago. The partnership has flourished and over time the hotel has undergone a series of development and rejuvenation. Sarah’s latest brief was to take five secluded luxury spa lodges to a new dimension, with the interior design playing a critical role in creating a comforting cocoon which would provide the all-important wow factor whatever the season.

The selection of individual designs for each one set out to maximise the unique Lake District setting to deliver, both indoors and out, a feeling of wellness and ‘escape’. Each was to have its own distinct personality providing discerning guests with a choice of décor according to personal preference and an interesting option of selecting a totally different experience for their next visit. Internally, there was to be a large bedroom and a distinct lounge space, both designed to take advantage of the stunning views. A convertible spa area was to be incorporated into each lodge with treatment beds stowable out of sight in the wardrobe area. The bathroom was to be divided into two distinct areas, separating the spa with sauna and hot tub from traditional bathroom facilities. The ultimate result overall has been the provision of a fully immersive guest experience.

Its award-winning project involved the interior design of a new villa close to the ocean and surrounded by nature, just outside Lisbon in Portugal. The client had lived abroad for many years but now wished to return to Portugal and build a house to become her family home. Being a highly demanding and sophisticated lady, she wanted to have exclusive, private areas where she could rest, contemplate and reflect. Social areas were also required where the family could host their friends within a luxurious, comfortable and refined setting.

There are three main highlights of SA&V’s stunning design for this property due to their size, grandeur, harmony and richness of materials. The vast, double height entrance hall is the most spectacular area of the house with floors worked in four different marbles – white Sivec, Portoro, Royal Gold and Rouge Langdoc. A staircase connecting the two floors is in white Sivec marble giving both grandeur and lightness while the stair guards and gallery are in black lacquered iron with applications of stainless steel and bronze details. In terms of the entrance hall’s decoration, modern materials have been mixed with antiques to create the distinct SA&V look. Forming an excellent example of this signature style, there is a table with an acrylic top and a base made from part of a 17th century altar. On the ceiling there

is another SA&V creation made from an Italian chandelier in carved wood and gold from the 17th century to which were applied abat jours in ivory silk and a stainless steel structure with a giant abat jours, also in ivory silk. The impressive dining room features a floor also crafted in white Sivec, Portoro, Royal Gold and Rouge Langdoc marbles, a coffered ceiling, walls lined with silk paper and niches in all four corners. The dining table has a glass top with an 18th century altarpiece for its base and is surrounded by Flexform chairs in ivory leather with bronze applications. A pair of Italian chandeliers from the 19th century, candlesticks and burners in bronze from different periods adorn the dining table. The master suite bathroom is equally stunning with walls and flooring in white

Sivec and Portoro marbles complemented by a chandelier in black Murano glass with abat jours in black silk, as in the bedroom suite. Niches and a vaulted ceiling are finished in gold leaf while shades are in ivory linen with an application of anthracite silk. A dressing table and stand in black glass features details in bronze and a bench positioned close to the bathtub is in ivory leather with feet of polished stainless steel and a central application in bronze. Classic floors, modern murals with a touch of irreverence, designer pieces mixed with antiques from various eras, contemporary artworks and the blend of textiles, materials and colours all draw together to create the villa’s unique ambiance. With this project, SA&V has fully achieved its clients’ dream concept.

PGC is committed to delivering a bespoke service to its clients through judicious investment in property, infrastructure and energy schemes aimed at developing modern and competitive communities mainly in the UK but also globally. Ideally located within the West Midlands, Birmingham forged a reputation as ‘the workshop of the world’ over 200 years ago during Britain’s Industrial Revolution. Today, the city offers a vibrant mix of businesses and cultures and has developed into a thriving commercial centre. Birmingham is not only the UK’s largest city outside London, but also one of the country’s biggest financial centres.

Official figures show that Birmingham is the most popular destination for people moving from London. The relocation of firms such as Deutsche Bank and HSBC will increase the number of affluent professionals making their home here. The diversity of the city’s economy is supported by its reputation as a hub for creative industries and it is among the UK’s fastest growing centres for digital media ventures. Taking all these important factors into account, PGC is now in the midst of developing an award-winning residential project in Birmingham city centre. The Jewel Court is within a designated conservation area which is home to over 200 listed buildings and hundreds of specialist jewellery retailers, designers and craftspeople. Aptly named The Jewellery Quarter, it also has a growing residential population and many

As a result, it is a perfect location for those seeking to live, work and relax in an increasingly aspirational city. The Jewel Court will be the latest addition to high quality, design-led, luxury living in this fashionable part of Birmingham. The development will include 77 stunning one and two-bedroom apartments, designed and built to the highest specification to attract both owner-occupiers and investors alike. In keeping with the district’s heritage, these apartments will offer superb craftsmanship and long-lasting accommodation in one of Europe’s most exciting cities. The Jewellery Quarter has an urban vernacular of primarily brick facades with slate roofs. Large windows also feature throughout

this area, both in commercial and residential properties. Hence, the use of materials for The Jewel Court reflects the industrial heritage of the surrounding context and ties the building into the overall site. The Jewel Court is located on a hilltop and has large windows to allow for beautiful views and exposure to sunlight.

  , TPO Reserve has grown into one of the largest architectural firms in Moscow with its unique and clearly recognisable artistic and aesthetic designs. Thanks to a highly developed production base, experienced specialists and use of the most advanced technologies in architectural design, the company consistently produces high quality projects at all levels. Today, TPO Reserve consists of four architectural design departments and an interior design team. There is also a structural engineering department divided into five teams and a wide range of in-house skills providing integrative design. The company’s award-winning architectural project Skolkovo Park for Living followed a commission by its client, Zarechyedevelopment LLC. It is a premium class,

club-type residence located at Moscow’s southwestern border. The development’s site is in the vicinity of the Skolkovo Innovation Center – the newest science and education city. The architecture of its campus is varied, bright and ambitious and interacts with the lyric landscape of the small Setun River. This relationship, as well as the spirit of innovative solutions for functional tasks, was expected to be reproduced in a new way in the Skolkovo Park for Living estate. The client wanted to create a premium class complex for 442 units, which would distinguish itself through its signature architecture. So, not only did the project need to be in the character of ‘villa suburbana’, but also the highest comfort level had to be attained in a large scale formation. This contradictory task promised the emergence of a special form of dwelling

and a specific architectural typology – both of which were completely in tune with Zarechyedevelopment’s interest in contemporary architectural aesthetics. The unique natural setting was undoubtedly the factor that inspired Skolkovo Park for Living’s whole design process. The smooth contours of the landscape were an invitation to follow them without any abrupt intervention. The intuitive desire to avoid orthogonal geometry also accompanied the birth of the project. The building is approximately 700 metres long at the outer line, while the general geometry of the complex is based on the curve which consists of three joined arches with different radii. This configuration allows a calm response to the relief and emphasises its natural character. Five gaps interrupt the curve,

opening the homogenous inner space of the complex towards the riverside. The contrast of the closed inner space and the wide panorama of Moscow and the Innovation City is yet another characteristic feature of the complex. Thanks to its configuration, this structure is able to form these ‘inner’ and ‘outer’ spaces of the complex, each with its own sounding. The unique geometry of the bay windows regulates the view and lighting conditions and creates an impressionable play of shadows on the facade. Mathematically clear architecture is supported by delicate landscape design. Tiny individual gardens, a green amphitheater and isolated from noise inner crescent with large trees allow residents feel in touch with surrounding nature. Suburban, monumental and sophisticated, Skolkovo Park for Living fully responds to both its place and time.

 P has earned an enviable reputation as one of Scotland’s most successful and highly regarded, privately owned property development and investment companies. Its award-winning restoration of 100 Queen Street, Glasgow is the latest milestone in the fascinating chronicles of this prominent landmark in the city’s central business district. The design criteria was to provide an inspirational, efficient and flexible office and retail location without compromise. The existing property in the prime business address of Royal Exchange Square had to be invigorated by remodelling its structure, refurbishing architectural features and increasing capacity, thus adding asset to a prospering area of Glasgow’s city centre. Complex engineering methods were employed to reinstate parapet stonework

dowelling and all hidden gems were reincorporated as design changes. One such example is the discovery of the original steel and concrete canopy beneath the fascia panelling applied in the 1980s. Through excellent teamwork, this sleek canopy profile was perfectly re-instated. Due to Esson Properties’ vision, strength of character and insistence on the highest standards of quality, the redevelopment reveals a contemporary transformation that amalgamates and re-asserts key elements of the original façade and design premise. Throughout this project, every opportunity to restore and enhance the original design intent has been grasped, reflecting the ‘sturdy enterprise and commercial advancement’ so adroitly asserted by Glasgow’s Merchant Princes who were associated with the building in past years.

 L  an established and highly-respected Argentinean architectural firm based in Marbella, Spain. The company was commissioned by a property investor to design a high-end home in a contemporary style with a view to selling on completion. The requirements for the award-winning property ‘Marbesa 272’ was to create an openplan living and dining area, an impressive American-style kitchen, large terraces, a spacious master bedroom and three guest bedrooms. Located in an urban area of Marbella in the heart of the Costa del Sol, inspiration came from houses which Carlos Lamas has recently designed in the area. Signature elements include natural white stone, floor to ceiling windows and solid, deep porches.

This modern concept with its straight lines and flat roof meets client and purchaser demand and blends harmoniously into the surrounding urbanisation of Marbesa. This complex of individual plots ranging from 700m² to 2,000m², features properties built with traditional and local materials. Originating in the 60s and 70s, over the ensuing years international residents have gradually preferred more eclectic styles. The client chose this overall design option as the covered areas created by the large porches do not take up any of the maximum building area. However, at the same time they manage to create a feeling of it being a much larger and highly spacious house.

Today the company works with leading international architects like BIG and OMA and is active both in conversion and new builds as well as property management. The company has won a trio of awards with the following projects. ‘79 & Park’ in Stockholm is an urban intervention in a park setting. Its design responds to the client’s ambition of creating an innovative and expressive building that will stand out as a natural landmark. The building volume, composed of continuous park greenery atop a cascade of modular residential units below, will house 168 residences, retail areas and a pre-school. Bageriet was originally built as factory on the outskirts of Stockholm in 1932. It is

now being carefully renovated and extended to develop 128 homes in an updated functionalism style. The most challenging aspect of this project was to change the building’s use radically while retaining its character and charm. Open, space efficient interiors have been created within the apartments, inspired by elegant 1920’s style and include every comfort. Norra Tornen is unique in Stockholm as it offers a rare opportunity to live in the city as well as above it. Having inherited two building shapes, each of different heights, Oscar Properties has transformed a once formalist structure into apartments that are surprisingly informal. Most have more than one balcony with huge, sliding panoramic windows and magnificent views. Interiors feature ‘Scandinavian International’ influences with exclusive fixtures and fittings.

Chameleon Beach House is an architect’s house, one that Ante Vrban always wanted to own, a place of serenity. Designed to bring peace of mind and the utmost privacy, the concept was to make a pavilion that will disappear into its surroundings – a ‘chameleon’ house. Its glass and mirror surfaces copy the surrounding environment while its simplicity of form becomes as one with nature. Resembling the back of a modern yacht looking out to sea, the house is elevated for the best

view and cascades down on to the beach. Guarded by pine trees, it is a house of the sea and the senses. Crkva Velikog Hrvatskog Krsnog Zavjeta is Ante Vrban’s visionary new approach to sacral interiors. The architect wanted to replace mysticism and shade with light, creating a place for prayer that will give hope and a divine atmosphere with no dark corners. It was therefore designed in the simplest way possible, featuring a line of light. Materials used have been chosen to be modern and energy saving. These include Gress tiles rather than the traditional marble and benches made of recycled material instead of wood to preserve forests.

It is a place for creative thinking where artists, style and technique specialists, skilled carpenters, expert decorators and master craftsmen meet and interact to create unique works, tailored to the client’s dream. Exclusiva’s award-winning project involved the interior design for a new, six-storey, 11,000m² business centre for Gazprom Neft in St. Petersburg, Russia. The key words for its contemporary concept were innovation, energy and movement. Everything, from the choice of materials to the definition of each element of furniture, was conceived exclusively to respond to a precise objective and an elevated degree of customisation.

Each one of floors has a specific purpose, the first being a striking entrance for visitors, operative areas from second to fifth levels and a CEO area for the top floor. Among the unique design elements, the workstations were studied and custom made in Italy, while the team of artists painted, carved or decorated with resins and liquid metals over 200 art pieces. An enormous project, it succeeds in combining aesthetics, function and design. Biodynamic lighting design, decorative experimentation and an innovative study of ergonomics and the use of space complete the framework of an in-depth research process which focused on achieving the exceedingly high levels of performance requested by the client.

The first is Avalon, a high-rise development which is unique not only for Lviv but also for Ukraine. Given that the city is renowned for its pristine architectural heritage, the architect’s task to fit it seamlessly into the existing urban landscape was a difficult one. However, the policy decision was that the new building should be ultramodern without citing past decorative architectural techniques. The only principle akin to the past is the variety of design apparent in the building’s façade. This proved a novelty in the region as well as in Ukraine and, together with many other factors, resulted in Avalon residential complex

comparing favourably with others in the context of investment attractiveness. Avalon Lux is a 10-storey apartment building in the centre of Lviv with a commercial zone on the ground floor for use by its residents. It also has a two-level underground parking facility and additional outside parking spaces for guests. A pool, children’s playground and tennis court add to the project’s amenities. Each floor accommodates eight apartments, all with spacious terraces overlooking the park or city centre.

The company’s award-winning restoration project Casa Burés is considered one of the jewels of Barcelona’s modernist architectural heritage. Originally constructed for the wealthy Burés family, owners of one of Spain’s most important textile industries, the building was designed at the turn of the 20th century by renowned contemporary Francesc Berenguer who worked closely with Antoni Gaudi. After many years of abandonment, Casa Burés was acquired by Bonavista Developments for redevelopment into 26 exclusive and highly luxurious homes. This formed a unique opportunity to combine the

restoration of the building’s original modernist features with the latest contemporary materials, finishes and amenities. The exquisitely refurbished apartments include lofts and penthouses with an array of premium services and opulent communal areas. The challenge to the interior design team was to transform these majestic and aristocratic living spaces into homes for today’s most sophisticated and culturally aware families. This has been accomplished through the recovery and restoration of the original features and pieces in the first phase. They are then enhanced with a careful selection of equally refined and elegant furnishings that are sere, ‘silent’ and discreet. Hence, they have the effect of reinforcing the original masterpieces while in no way competing with them.

Materials mostly used to great effect throughout this project are marble, bronze, painted oak and glass. Different lighting elements have also been incorporated to create a harmony between wall lamps, surface

and recessed mounted spots, floor lamps and suspended lights. Bebek House is a fully renovated 300m penthouse apartment with a full view of the Bosphorus. Esra Kazmirci removed all the interior walls to redesign the entire layout taking into account the single male owner’s priorities. His brief was to create a masculine, spacious, sportive and stylish place where guests would feel comfortable. Colours such as grey, black and anthracite have been used throughout as a suitably masculine palette with dashes of colour from carpets and accessories adding a touch of variety. Bronze-detailed legs on the coffee tables combine elegantly with bronze mirror and noma black marbles while the extensive use of dark grey mirrors serves to expand the space.

Situated in an exclusive location in the Bosphorus hills, it overlooks Istanbul’s two bridges that connect Europe to Asia. The primary target for both H2C and the client was to return this badly dilapidated historical building to its former splendour. It also had to meet the modern day expectations of its residents without compromising its aesthetic and architectural style. Contrary to many of the renovated houses in the region, this mansion

gave very little information about its original form. Its rear façade had been demolished, the front façade was degenerated and the interior had been improperly sectioned over the years. Following detailed research and a broad vision, wooden building construction techniques were used to follow the period’s architectural style. The property’s 4,500m of land has also been restored with the same loving care. H2C has installed various levels of terracing for different uses to mirror the original garden’s period design. Extensive formal and informal planting, impressive water features, an arched stone lodge surrounding a fire pit and a large swimming pool have been carefully implemented to create a haven of peace and tranquility.

  W, Poland, Tremend opened its architectural and interior design studio in 2011 by Magdalena Federowicz – Boule. The company has won awards for two of its latest hotel interior design projects. Ibis Styles Budapest City involved the renovation of an existing hotel, including all rooms, conference and common areas. The Ibis Styles brand is based on the concept of storytelling which, for this particular hotel, revolves around cycling and the culture surrounding bikes. Inspiration for this main theme was found within the city of Budapest itself where cycling is hugely popular. The storytelling runs throughout the hotel and consists of many fun parallels, such as bike bar stools, computer stands with bikes instead of seats and lamps inspired by bike lights.

Novotel Wroclaw Center in Poland is the result of a renovation of the 1960’s Hotel Orbis Wroclaw for Accor Hotels. Tremend based its design concept on leaving the raw wall finishes open to show their concrete construction, basing the interior design around an industrial theme. By working closely with Paris Accor Hotels’ design department, Tremend created a space where everything revolves around the central bar, while also providing interesting areas for work, play and relaxation. The selected furniture is classic in design with muted colours, natural materials and simple shapes. This creates a cosy atmosphere which remains flexible for various settings and uses. Tremend is currently working on the revitalisation of an old car factory, changing it into an exhibition complex with hotel and office space, the extension and modernisation of railway stations in Poland, a new generation shopping mall and Mercure hotel.

The interior design for Piyalepasa Istanbul Show Home reflects its exterior’s vernacular style of Selchuk and mostly Ottoman architecture. Marble is the most dominant material and this has been applied in almost every room. The Piyalepasa Mosque near the project’s site, inspired and encouraged iki design group to include marble, timber, large, dark coloured tiles, golden and copper tone metallic details and geometric features. Rize Mix is a mixed-use development where residents and locals can gather to enjoy social activities and shopping. The residential high-rise tower within this project is specially designed to provide views of the Black Sea wherever

possible. Since the city of Rize is renowned for its black tea production, tea leaves were the key inspiration for the tower’s design. Resembling a tea-flower, Rize Mix forms an iconic landmark. Vadipark Seyrantepe Office II consists of two circular office buildings with retail units at the ground floor and parking for 329 vehicles on the basement floors. All facades are designed to be open to both the site’s natural surroundings and the direction of the city.

The company’s award-winning interior design was for a three-bedroom flat with a stunning view of London’s Tower Bridge in the famous warehouse conversion Butler’s Wharf. The clients brief required an exciting, spectacular and luxurious space for entertaining guests. The project took a year to complete and included a full reconfiguration of the both the floor and electrical plans plus bespoke furniture and finishes. As the ceilings were quite low, the original lay out was rather dark and

claustrophobic and so more open space was created to allow light to fill the spaces. The living room was highlighted with rich burgundy hues, smoked glass and dark accents while the bedrooms feature stunning pops of colour and pattern with bespoke wardrobes and upholstery. It was important to Maisha that each element in the design followed a subtle continuity. This has resulted in every area having its own theme yet being connected to others through its beautiful custom-made furniture, brass and smoked glass. However, the main features of this apartment are the illuminated alabaster bar and the copper and brass marble bathrooms. These are true works of art and elevate the apartment to a higher sense of luxury.

An icon of the area’s artistic and cultural heritage, the development will also deliver a state-of-the-art new home for the prestigious London Centre of Contemporary Music in a pioneering and innovative building. Inspired by this revered school of music, Taylor Wimpey Central London has created a striking architectural structure that harmoniously evokes the creativity and flair of music while providing beguiling contemporary

The 14-storey building is formed of two distinct geometric elements, reflecting its dual purpose as an internationally-renowned music school and sophisticated residential address. The base is topped by a series of slender white fins that evoke keys on a piano and the strings of a chordophone. These deliver both architectural form and act as a climatecontrol function to the apartments within. Subtle musical references continue throughout communal parts of the building as well as bespoke painted canvases. The Music Box establishes a new sense of place among some of the world’s most significant cultural institutions, offering spectacular panoramic views over London’s skyline from dramatic full-height windows, winter gardens and generous roof terraces.

The company has won awards for the two following architectural projects: Brickripples is a multiple residence development in Krasnoarmeysk, a town which originated in 1834 as a settlement for the newly established spinning mill. Most of the factory buildings and town houses that have survived until today constructed of brick in the typical industrial architectural style of the 19th century. A study of the site’s history also revealed a long, barrack-like body of workers’ dormitories. Thus the historical structure of the territory has been preserved and used in this project. The facade’s conception is ‘the foliage of trees in the wing’ with two-colour masonry, which creates the

Equitorus

effect of randomness along the long facades and rigour which is common in the trunks of the trees at the end wall. The colour range is limited to natural shades of the surrounding landscape. ALPN was commissioned by a professional horse rider to create a unique equestrian complex in the Pushkin district. ‘Equitorus’ was required to meet all the stringent sanitary and technological requirements for the maintenance, training and preparation of horses competing at the highest level. The complex also had to contain the entire infrastructure necessary for the living and recreation needs of horse owners during their spare time. The most remarkable element of the complex is its large indoor arena made of glued wooden structures and featuring an L-shaped gallery with spectator seats and cafes. The object is perceived as a contrast in relation to the natural environment. It seems as if someone had spread a colourful homespun mat on the ground.

 A D, Interior Design studio in Paris has been creating luxurious interiors for hotels, restaurants, high-end private homes, shops and boats for 30 years. These two award-winning projects are excellent examples. The interior design of the AKOYA Hotel & Spa on Reunion Island, France exudes luxury and exoticism, inspired by its exceptional natural surroundings. Involving 104 rooms, suites and their bathrooms, two restaurants, an exterior bar, swimming pool terrace, multipurpose conference room, lobby and wellness spa, the client asked Borella to transcribe its vision of hedonism and wellbeing. By paying tribute to the heritage and amazing cultural variety of the island, using natural materials, a pure and soothing

ambiance has been created throughout the hotel. The company was commissioned to design the interiors of a private ‘weekend’ villa in the Swiss Alps for a family of 10 who enjoy mountain sports. Therefore, Borella’s design concept is ‘nature in the mountain’ and resembles the shape of a snowflake on four floors, showing that in nature nothing is at a 90 degree angle. The villa’s large living areas have been remodeled to look as if they have been cut into the mountain and give a feeling of space and communication. An extremely comfortable and warm ‘box’ has been created using natural fabrics and materials, subtle highlighting of spaces and an elegant mix of designer furniture both chosen and designed by Borella all harmonise with the surrounding atmosphere.

Located in the most popular part of Derby in Darley Abbey, equally close to the city centre and the outskirts of the Peak District, Broadway is the first of the company’s two latest award-winning developments. The development of this site was a dream come true for the Broadway Baptist Church which had deliberated for two decades as to how to fund a much-needed local community centre. Developing just nine new homes generated £900,000, which was enough to construct a community centre, also built by Radleigh. As a gold specification development, the houses at Broadway are finished to the

highest standard and include features such as underfloor heating, granite worktops and oak faced internal doors. Weavers Point is a development comprising two apartment blocks in a prime city centre location, adjacent to the historical and vibrant cathedral quarter of Derby. With a great selection of restaurants, bars, shops and cinemas and the beautiful Derbyshire countryside just a short journey away. Derby is statistically an exciting area for new high tech engineering employment, therefore Radleigh’s vision was to create and deliver a scheme that provided extremely high quality apartments. Combining traditional design features with contemporary style, Weavers Point offers city living at its best for all age groups.

It’s portfolio includes a wide array of projects from hotels, head offices, restaurants and flagship stores to residential developments, one-off houses and house refurbishments. Inspiration for its award-winning project The White House on the Burwood Estate in Walton on Thames, Surrey came from the site’s surrounding trees. The clients had decided to demolish their original faux Georgian property which overshadowed its rear garden and outdoor swimming pool and build a dream home. Hence, 3s was commissioned

to re-orientate the new house to focus on a west garden, double its size and maximize the connection to a sunny garden that was no longer left in shade. As The White House inherited its name from the original house on the site, it seemed fitting to finish the new house predominantly in white render. Key to the spirit of the design is an open house, which also has areas of privacy and enclosure. These are broken down into smaller masses, focusing family spaces in an L-shape around a sunny south-west garden. Conceived as a cluster of enclosed and open spaces, the house opens up to a series of different gardens, providing light into the depth of the building and views out to the trees.

The company’s award-winning residential renovation, Artisan, is in the heart of Fitzrovia. Located in the Charlotte Street Conservation Area, it involves a carefully crafted conversion of five connecting historic buildings, each original in its design and in a prominent position. The underlying principle behind the scheme was to rebuild an important street corner with a harmonious mix of retained buildings, replica replacement facades and contemporary insertions in order to reflect the dynamic context of the location. Spanning the upper floors of these terraced buildings, the project is home to just 13

beautifully bespoke, one, two and threebedroom properties inspired by the area’s history and artisan scene. Many apartments spread across multiple buildings, thus the traditional lateral layout has been broken up with a step or two between rooms, further increasing the feeling of spaciousness. The three penthouses offer artisan living at its very best, each with an individual style, spread over a thoughtfully designed duplex layout. The two and three-bedroom properties incorporate a bespoke feature staircase in a range of sweeping, spiral and floating styles. Every property is expertly designed to accommodate the varying original features of the exterior buildings, including generous ceiling heights, pitched roofs or grand Victorian sash windows.

Her award-winning interior design is for the ‘New Art Deco Apartment’ located in a modern building in Warsaw, Poland. The client, an English businessman, frequent traveller and art collector, wanted to create a space that corresponded to the style of town houses from the 1920s. He has several apartments in Europe and, as he wishes each one to follow the same layout, this apartment has been completely rebuilt. As Dominika has a passion for architecture and details of the art deco period, she has worked on an original collection for many

years, aptly named New Art Deco. Following a meeting with the client, he agreed that this concept would suit their combined vision of a stylish and elegant interior, full of light with sublime taste. The project included a lot of furniture, decorative elements and items from Dominika’s collection. Every piece was handmade using unique materials and, although they all referred to the style of the art deco era, they were modernised to suit 21st century living. While the design of the interiors was in tune with Dominika’s work, it also had to allude to the current global trends in metalwork, types of upholstered furniture, ubiquitous choices of velvet and beautiful veneers.

The Queen’s Brewery in Manchester is an awardwinning project from Forshaw. It transforms a former brewery into a residential retreat that perfectly befits modern 21st century living but maintains a stunning ode to the past. The Grade II listed Queen’s Brewery has both substantial historical and architectural significance and occupies a site that is over 155 years old. It has original period features throughout including a romantic-style clock tower and a red brick exterior. Recognising the potential of a building with such importance within the

Offering four different types, the luxurious units range in size from studios to threebedroom apartments. The site’s stunning courtyard was pivotal to the conservation of the building’s history, hence it was redeveloped by Forshaw and the architects, Hattrell DS One, to become the nucleus of the project.

 P  a family-owned company based in Newquay, Cornwall which has been acquiring, designing and building properties for over 10 years. It puts specific focus on newly-constructed, luxury coastal properties built using locally sourced materials. Seascape, an award-winning residential development located on Newquay’s Pentire peninsula, is Legacy’s first flagship project. It features a selection of 10 luxury apartments and two houses in a private, new-build development overlooking the world-renowned Fistral beach. Buyers were able to personalise their new homes with a range of kitchens, bathrooms and floor finishes. This enabled all occupants to

have their own, bespoke designs to an exacting specification. Further enhancing the owners’ living experience, the dining and living room boasts stylish, open plan living, while details such as ceiling mounted speakers are installed to optimise entertaining. Embracing Cornish outdoor living, homes also include an outdoor shower and wash down area to freshen up after surfing and a private landscaped garden. Each property is beautifully appointed and designed to make the most of the breathtaking views with a striking exterior and equally stunning interiors. From its glass balustrade balconies and carefully considered overall design, to unrivalled attention to detail from the inside through to the outside – Seascape is the perfect blend of luxury living and coastal-cool.

 M A specialises in taking a flexible approach to architecture and design in order to deliver unique and practical solutions. The company’s award-winning project comprises two residential buildings, named Dragonfly and Firefly, located on the main street of Frisange in Luxembourg. One of the client’s requirements was to include large exterior terraces which would enable residents to extend their living space outside when the weather permitted. There was to be a spacious open plan kitchen and living room while giving the bedrooms and bathrooms more privacy. A balance also had to be found between providing plenty of light during the winter months and offering shade in summer.

As the front of the buildings are on a very busy road, Rodolphe Mertens Architects chose to adopt a sealed architectural concept to function as a sound absorber. Conversely, the rear of both buildings have a beautiful view across fields and so a much more open design was used. Interiors have been deliberately designed to be functional and straightforward in a minimalistic wayto attract high-end property buyers. Finishing the buildings’ facades in terracotta was ingenious as it resulted in an eye-catching design compared to other buildings on the street. The final design of Dragonfly and Firefly creates a unity between their facades with stunning 160 metre terraces as their defining feature.

 S P is an awardwinning, iconic, elliptical glass skyscraper in Gibraltar’s coveted Ocean Village. It comprises 125 luxury one, two and three-bedroom apartments, including Presidential Penthouses on the 17th storey, a seven-level car park plus retail and commercial space at ground level. Oversized windows and huge, deep terraces come as standard, with a select number of garden apartments on the eighth floor. All units will be equipped with chef-calibre kitchens, opulent bathrooms with walk-in showers and natural wood flooring throughout living and bedroom areas with marble hallways. The highend apartments will be bathed in natural light and enjoy panoramic views due to Ocean Spa Plaza’s unique oval superstructure. Inspired by Singapore’s ‘Tree House’, Ocean Spa Plaza will pioneer Vertical Garden

sustainable technology in Gibraltar, covering 70% of the circumference of floors one to six in foliage. This will both emit oxygen and support an ecosystem of insects, birds and other wildlife, transforming the urban environment into a cool, sound-insulated zone which is rich in biodiversity. The building’s environmental awareness continues with a vertical southwestfacing wall of photo-voltaic cells. The essence of well-being and serenity, ‘Sky Spa’ on the rooftop enjoys breath-taking 360 vistas and will include a variety of exclusive water features; from Jacuzzis, an infinity pool, sculptured massage beds, cascading waterfalls, hydro showers, massage, sauna and steam rooms – all surrounded by lush flora and fauna. Due to their quality, location and a highly effective marketing strategy, 98% of these luxury apartments were sold off-plan, with only two stunning penthouses remaining.

    and knowledge of global trends, Hola Design offers complex interior design and architectural services not only in Poland but also abroad. It also creates furniture and other design elements, many of which are custom made, for dispatch across Europe. The company combines professionalism, reliability and common sense with attention to quality, originality and functionality of each proposed solution. Hola’s award-winning project involves the interior design of a modern, spacious house for a couple with two teenage sons and a four-year-old daughter. Its starting point was a contemporary, minimalistic style which was most favoured by the clients. This was further developed into a consistent timeless interior in which design goes hand in hand with

functionality. Most of the furniture and other elements were designed by Hola and custom made by its cooperative companies. All living spaces have been divided into levels with a daily zone on the ground floor and a private zone on the first floor. This includes a cosy yet stylish master bedroom zone. The entrance zone features an open staircase, while a multifunctional living area adjoining the kitchen and dining area, is ideal for family gatherings in front of the fireplace. The ground floor is also complemented with a work and relax zone comprising an office plus bathroom with sauna. With this home, Hola has achieved a balance between industrial simplicity and a warm, comfortable interior by using practical concrete wall covering, dominant wooden panel features, natural plants and a timeless colour palette.
