Welcome! As spring gradually turns into summer even those of us living in less sunny climes begin to spend an increasing amount of time outside. With this in mind we’ve included a special feature on garden design to maximise the enjoyment that can be found on our own doorsteps. By creating various outdoor areas with water features, outdoor kitchens, barbecues and fire pits you suddenly find you have an additional range of attractive scenarios in which to entertain or simply relax. We have injected some celebrity interest into two of our features this issue. The first, rather unexpectedly, is in our superyacht article where the gorgeous sloop ‘Regina’ comes under the spotlight. The boat, which featured in the James Bond movie Skyfall with actor Daniel Craig onboard in his role as 007, has now come on to the yachting market with a multi-million pound price tag. Should you be in a position to buy this lovely vessel, one of the first sails you might be tempted to take could be to the French Riviera. This is where we’ve discovered the second most expensive property currently for sale in Europe – the fashion designer Pierre Cardin’s amazing Bubble Palace. Also well worth a thorough investigation is the late singer and songwriter George Michael’s fabulous former villa near Saint Tropez. Enjoy your property hunting, Jill Keene

Bubble Palace, Cannes Currently the second most expensive home for sale in Europe, this revolutionary property of approximately 1,200m2 was designed by the architect Antti Lovag. It was built between 1975 and 1989 and purchased by the famous fashion designer Pierre Cardin in the early 1990s as a vacation home. Taking the form of a cluster of bubbles spread over six levels, the property is at the forefront of contemporary architecture. It includes a panoramic lounge, reception room and 10 suites decorated by contemporary artists. A stunning 500-seat outdoor auditorium overlooks the sea, facing the bay of Cannes, while gardens, ponds and a swimming pool create a clifftop paradise stretching over more than 8,500m2 of grounds. £276.7m / €319.5m / $335m Michaël Zingraf Real Estate Christie’s

France · Resplendent on the Riviera


y all accounts, the French Riviera property market is booming, boosted by low interest rates, price falls inland, and an increase in sales in coastal locations, such as Cannes, Antibes and Saint Tropez. Tim Swannie at Home Hunts reports that buyers are now getting more for their money in locations such as Biot, Opio, Roquefortles-Pins and Châteauneuf de Grasse. “Grasse, the world capital of perfume, is also a great area for investments,” he says. “The town is currently spending millions redeveloping the centre and there is a direct train line to Cannes and the rest of the Riviera.” Home Hunts’ data revealed that the area’s most coveted locations are Mougins, Valbonne and Grasse; Cap d’Antibes and Cannes; Villefranche-sur-Mer and Saint Jean-Cap-Ferrat; and also Saint Tropez. “Two medieval villages, Mougins and Valbonne offer authentic charm, good amenities and have a busy events calendar,” says Amy Bault, a Riviera consultant for Home Hunts. “These villages are very international whilst not being overrun with tourists in the summer. They are also close to several international schools. “The Cap d’Antibes and Cannes are both around 30 minutes from Nice airport and have wonderful sandy beaches. Both areas are excellent for yacht lovers. Clients invest in these areas as they have the dream Riviera lifestyle on their doorstep. The bustling town of Villefranche-sur-Mer neighbours the forested peninsula of Saint Jean-Cap-Ferrat. “These are popular areas known for their beautiful sea views and proximity to Monaco. With easy access to the beaches and ports, they offer an ideal investment for many of our clients. A quaint village, Saint Tropez offers a perfect blend of old-world charm and glamour. Property wise, there are a huge number of luxury villas, apartments and townhouses available in the area. Prices remain high as it’s a highly exclusive location attracting buyers from all over the world.” Tim Clark of Leggett Prestige believes that the upcoming election in France will deliver a more proactive government and this has prompted the interest in highend property to increase. “Property asking prices are still a little on the high side in this segment,” he advises, “however vendors are rarely in a rush to sell, but will entertain offers from serious clients.” 22

Ramatuelle, near Saint Tropez Previously owned by the late singer and songwriter George Michael, this property is on a green, 6,000m2 plot very close to the Pampelonne beach. It has been completely renovated and offers a great view of the sea. The ground floor includes a living room, dining room, kitchen and three en suite bedrooms. On the first floor is a master bedroom with walk-in wardrobe and bathroom, while at garden level there are two guest bedrooms with adjacent shower room/bathroom plus a caretaker’s apartment. Amenities include a fitness room, heated swimming pool, inter-connected sound system and air-conditioning. £10.3m / €11.9m / $12.5m

The Réserve de Beaulieu is a in

the heart of one of the most tranquil

communities on the Côte d’Azur


nly a few months after it opened nearly 130 years ago, a good food critic said, ‘The Réserve de Beaulieu is the restaurant of kings and the king of restaurants’. The years have passed and the Beaulieu restaurant is still living up to its name. The most discerning customers remain attracted by its terrace overlooking the sea, its stylish service, elegancy, and cellar full of the best French vintages. What’s more, it features regularly among the best places to eat in France and proudly sports one star in the Michelin Guide. The Réserve de Beaulieu has 39 rooms and suites, all decorated with loving care with period furniture or pieces made to measure by a cabinetmaker. The walls are covered in delicate frescoes with a decidedly Mediterranean feel with bouquets of flowers, cornucopias, bowls of fruit and bunches of grapes. In 2002 and 2003, the Réserve de Beaulieu enriched its hotel offer with two private apartments called ‘Victoria’ and ‘Mistinguett’. The first of the two duplexes pays tribute to England’s most famous queen. The British monarch was a regular visitor to


the Riviera during the 19th century. With two large bedrooms, each with its own private bathroom, a large dressing room and a huge sitting room, this is the perfect haven for a family holiday. The ambiance is more imaginative and glamorous in the Villa Mistinguett. This is to be expected, as it is named after the woman who will always remain the queen of ‘Paris by night’. Designed just for two, its 90m² saloon has a big screen, a desk with a PC and Internet connection and a private bar. The second floor is reached via a private lift or a large spiral staircase. Here guests discover a huge bedroom, a bathroom containing a hammam shower and an immense 125m² terrace with a panoramic view over the sea. 

Plottingfor the FUTURE We find out more about a rare opportunity to purchase a prime plot of land in La Moraleja, near Madrid

This 47,000m2 building plot is only 10 kilometres north of the metropolitan area of Madrid, probably the most acclaimed luxury residential estate in Spain. La Moraleja is notable for its luxurious mansions and impressive security, with numerous sporting clubs and recreation centres. In the past, it was the place wealthy Madrilians chose for their weekend getaways to escape from the city centre’s hustle and bustle. Nowadays, its privileged location makes La Moraleja the perfect area to live conveniently close to the centre but still be surrounded by silence and greenery. Although shops and restaurants can be found all around the area, a wider selection is just a 15-minute drive away. The plot is unique for its size being the only one of its kind in this range as well as its location inside La Moraleja. It is only a 10-minute walk away from the lively La Moraleja Square with its trendy restaurants and shops, yet still offers a haven of peace and privacy. Further services in the La Moraleja area include two shopping malls, three hospitals and health clinics, four championship 18-hole golf courses, a tennis club and 15 international schools. All this, in addition to being just 17 km away from Barajas International Airport, makes the plot’s location perfect for a family home or long-term investment. Probuilding S.L. e:

countries in Europe. The renowned poet Lord Byron famously described it as ‘the most beautiful merging of land and sea’. A popular destination half a century ago, Montenegro is now re-emerging as a hot destination for today’s discerning travellers and property investors. The country’s natural blessings compete on all fronts with any of Europe’s leading destinations, from the dark, brooding mountains for which this country is named to the 117 picturesque beaches that welcome the glistening Adriatic. The UNESCO-protected Bay of Kotor (Boka), with its coastal churches and fortified towns, is a gem in Montenegro. There are a myriad of experiences to be savoured from roaming the dreamlike littoral of Tivat and Kotor to wandering the charming cobblestone streets and squares that retain the beauty left behind by the Venetians at the end of the 18th century.

Blissful indulgence This stunning setting is home to the new €650 million, 60 acre, luxury development at Portonovi - a community which will offer blissful indulgence to people of all generations from across the globe. The sophisticated, south-facing resort sits on the most exclusive part of pristine Boka Bay enjoying sun from sunrise to sunset. The first of Portonovi’s 275 properties will open later in 2017. The wide-ranging collection includes

Portonovi is already attracting international attention from sun-seekers considering a unique second home and investors looking to add to their portfolio. Investment in Montenegro, which has been independent since 2006, is appealing due to a business-friendly democratic government, an open economy and a highly competitive tax regime. Portonovi is easy to reach. Dubrovnik and Tivat Airports are less than an hour away and are both served directly by a number of airlines from London and a range of other international cities, whilst also offering private jet facilities. Over the next few years, Portonovi will become an elite, sought after destination for residents and holidaymakers alike.

The name of the box referred to a member of the Chalfen family who worked in London between the start of the century and 1964, meaning these masters must have originated somewhere between these dates. (The fact that they are brass only adds to their authenticity as masters today are created in a computer and then formed in wax or resin). Not knowing if these had ever been used before, Chalfen of London has decided to create only 10 of each of these models as limited editions in honour of their maker. Part of the Limited Edition Chalfen of London Historic range, this is the Constance pendant which features 1.64ct of diamonds set in 18ct white gold. £9,885 / €11,240 / $11,915 

She came from a background of printed textiles but is now fascinated by creating fabulous free blown glass vessels. Some are based on merging hot molten coloured glass to achieve soft colour bleeds, and blurring lines, while other vessels are based on a reinterpretation of the classic Swedish technique of Graal. This is where a cup of layered glass colours gets cut and stripped away revealing a pattern.

Cy Twombly This is the first major posthumous show for Cy Twombly (1928-2011) and the perfect excuse for a weekend break in Paris. There’s no question that Twombly is today a giant in the art world – but it took a long time for him to get there. This show is the best chance you may ever have to judge and understand this artist. For Twombly – a prime contender for the sneer, ‘My children could do better’ – is undoubtedly difficult. Obsessed with marks, the ordered chaos of these graffiti-like scrawls are, despite their classical references, hardly sentimental, European works. Yet that was a charge levelled by a chauvinistic New York art establishment obsessed with Minimalism and Pop Art.

The Collection of Hermann and Margrit Rupf This show places some 70 works collected by the Swiss couple alongside contemporary artworks. The Rupfs were great art patrons and Hermann, a Bern businessman, played a minor role as an art critic, nurturing public taste for contemporary art. What is most telling perhaps is the massive influence exerted by the important Parisian dealer Hermann Kahnweiler who advised the Rupfs and himself secured the right to represent Paul Klee. Picasso, who drew the dealer when he was still a struggling artist, once said, ‘What would have become of us if Kahnweiler hadn’t had a business sense?’ The whole collection may come as a surprise to anyone who thought that Peggy Guggenheim had a monopoly in this field.

Award-winning interior designers offer advice on perfecting that all-important hub of the home – the kitchen

Apartment 12


hether you’re an accomplished cook or prefer someone else to handle the culinary side of life, there’s no escaping the fact that the kitchen is one of the most vital rooms in the house. Harrison Varma was established in London in 1996 by husband and wife team Anil and Marisa Varma with a focus on incorporating stylish design and handcrafted bespoke features. Marisa Varma says, “We have always viewed the kitchen as somewhere for family to congregate and relax together in a practical yet stylish environment. Because of this, open-plan kitchen/family living areas have become one of our trademarks.

Interiors.indd 2

“Our typical layout includes an expansive kitchen with central island and statement breakfast bar, a tall storage wall, dining table for 8-10 people and an adjoining family living room with a large L-shaped sofa arrangement. Sometimes our clients prefer to use sliding doors which allow the room to be divided and block out noise or cooking smells. This formula creates a space that is multi-functional and lends itself to many activities, allowing a family to connect and interact rather than be separated throughout different rooms.” Harrison Varma still adheres to the ‘kitchen work triangle’ which is an easy tool to assess the ergonomics of your kitchen. “The larger the kitchen, the more triangles you need to create,” explains Marisa, “that’s why in many of our kitchens we double-up on appliances like dishwashers to create an easy working environment. The kitchens in the apartments at Buxmead in London’s exclusive Bishops Avenue are by Bulthaup and include two sinks, two fridges and a wine fridge, combi microwave and warming drawer, steam oven, oven and state-ofthe-art coffee machine. They feature a range of timber cabinets to match their chosen veneer and the worktops are made of different types of granite – for example, Apartment 12 features granite with a blue fleck therefore blue has been incorporated into the interior finishes to create a cohesive and individual look.

The Mansion

“Now, more than ever, we believe that the kitchen is not just for cooking in – it is an important space to impress and entertain as we enjoy cooking as a pastime and want to be able to spend periods of time there, chatting and interacting with family or guests alike. Therefore, it has never been more important to create a space that is functional but visually impressive and enjoyable to socialise in.” Harrison Varma tends to use natural materials alongside leather furniture and decorative lighting; often using high-quality granite or marble for the worktops, polished timber cabinet doors, Italian leather seating and pendant lighting above the breakfast bar for dramatic effect. “We also try to remove clutter from the surfaces,” explains Marisa, “therefore we now incorporate zip taps for instant hot water, filtered water taps, integrated coffee machines, and neat ‘plug tower’ solutions for unsightly yet necessary power-points. We have also noticed the trend for ‘designer kitchens’ – for example, you can now buy a Fendi Casa kitchen and Giorgetti launched a stunning kitchen at Salone del Mobile in Milan last year.” Cabinet doors form an important visual element that can define the style of the kitchen, depending on whether they are more traditional or a contemporary high-gloss finish, for instance. “Our bespoke joinery workshop can produce

bespoke kitchen doors, allowing our clients to create a unique space with complete flexibility in terms of the finishes, decorative details and door handles that they can select,” says Marisa. “One of our favourite projects is the ubermodern, award-winning project The Mansion in Highgate which was completed in 2008. We created book-matched Macassar Ebony cabinets that were hand-polished over 10 times (a similar finish to a Bentley dashboard). We can also work with organic timber to create a rustic look for breakfast bars – we worked on a project like this for a celebrity client who was inspired by the look at a restaurant.”

Space identity

Roselind Wilson Design is a London-based interior design studio specialising in top end residential projects in the UK and abroad. “We believe the space and the person to be one and the same,” explains the company’s founder and owner Roselind Wilson. “Our processes, values and culture are design-centric and focused to deliver strong space identity. “Give thought to the kitchen’s position within the house. Will it be part of an open plan arrangement that forms an extension of the dining room or will it be a completely separate room? Will it be an intimate kitchen where the family gathers around the breakfast bar to share meals? Or will it be a 70

Interiors.indd 4

more formal entertaining kitchen where a private chef will prepare dinners for guests? It might perhaps be a combination of both however these are significant questions that should be considered in the layout, seating, appliances and lighting to ensure the desired functionality and outcome of the design.” Roselind advises that a kitchen with an island is most advantageous. “This not only allows for a desired preparation or cooking surface but also forms the perfect room divider if it is open plan. It’s also good to ensure that all tall units are not placed directly opposite the kitchen entrance,” she says. “This can make the kitchen feel smaller or cluttered. If your kitchen has a bay window, a perfect design feature to incorporate is a banquette seating area that can function as a dining or informal eating area.” Bright colour schemes tend to become outdated quickly and so Roselind’s advice is to steer clear of these. “You can be bold with colour, however the best options are moodier, darker colours like greys, blues and greens.

Even a monochromatic scheme can remain sophisticated and timeless when paired with other materials and finishes. Opting for a single colour in the kitchen can feel clinical and uninspiring. A good suggestion is to marry woods and natural stones or composites for practicality and durability as this adds a timeless feel.” Modern trends have allowed the kitchen to take on the same hierarchy as the living and dining rooms meaning that features akin to these areas are now found in the kitchen. “Adding a feature fireplace gives a homely and inviting feel to the kitchen,” says Roselind. “Another consideration is to have fun with the floor. Stunning resins are fantastic, durable surfaces for the kitchen and can act as a blank canvas on which you can add patterns and a burst of colour if required. “Kitchens are now showcasing timbers in warmer tones and generally richer colours. Lighting is being introduced in varying levels with LED ceiling spotlights supported by ambient wall lights and channel lights in joinery and behind glazed units to add a sense of warmth. Marbles have always been a priority in any high-end kitchen design however these are being replaced by composites that brilliantly mimic marble for their durability and practicality – qualities that are becoming extremely important to a discerning clientele.”  Roselind Wilson Design w:

garden special


udyard Kipling once said, ‘The glory of the garden lies in more than meets the eye’. How true this statement is as design and planning are vital if the desired results are to be achieved. Peter Burks, gardening guru for online garden centre says, “One way to create interest in your garden is by dividing it up into ‘rooms’ with each one serving a different purpose. Adding garden ornaments can also help to separate your spaces or bring them together. “The 21st century garden is an extension of the home. Entertaining outside and dining al fresco is a fashionable must. Patios and paths bring the indoors out and link your home and garden seamlessly. Creating the right ambience in your garden follows the same principles that an interior designer might adopt when decorating a dining room or any other living space. The materials, colours and textures you use and the style you adopt are very important.

“Chimineas and fire pits are becoming increasingly popular and, as well as having a practical purpose, they also make a great focal point in your entertaining area. Water can be one of the most fascinating elements of a garden, whether it is a pond that reflects all around or a gentle fountain or water feature. Having moving water in any garden is good for the soul, according to Feng Shui consultants. You could have a grand traditional fountain, a modern under lit stream or a fishpond.”

Throwing light on the subject

The use of outside lighting can further extend the feeling of space. Sally Storey, design director of John Cullen Lighting, explains, “This is not only effective in the summer for parties or outside dining but also in the winter when looking out from inside. For a large glazed exposed kitchen on to the garden or a conservatory it stops you from feeling like a goldfish in a bowl and brings the garden in. The latest LED technology must be embraced as never before have so many magical effects be achievable for such little energy usage. “The secret is to light the key features – this could be using spiked Kensington Spotlights to light a line of trees or a sculpture or Richmonds to light at low level or a path. Consider layering of light, key focuses on one circuit and more light on another. For a decorative effect, consider using Starliters hanging in trees.” However, Ms Storey advises it’s best to avoid over-lighting the garden as a little light goes a long way at night. “If your trees or shrubbery are dense, ie box hedging, uplighting will not work, better to be downlight,” she says. “For a bit of magic, add firebowls and small spiked flares.” 74

Project profile

This beautiful garden is in the exclusive Lilliput area of Poole, Dorset. With a garden that meets the ocean, a space was designed that would be both functional and fun; whilst making the most of the sweeping panoramic views of Brownsea Island The original garden was a 30-year-old Italian design using lots of brick that was harsh on the eye. A third of the garden was sunken into a three metre crater so the views of Poole Bay were completely wasted. The main focus of this garden design was to move away from the bricks and to raise the area to make the most of the exquisite views. This seaside garden presented a unique set of challenges as there was minimal access to the property, meaning that all the work had to be carried out using micro machinery. A clever design strategy was required immediately, as

removing lots of unwanted rubble from the site provided impossible. With this in mind, no major structural changes were made, but instead the sunken garden was used as an advantage, where it was incorporated into the design to make it part of the ‘journey’. At the very end of the garden, at the water’s edge is an oak slipway for easy access to the sea. Alongside this, overlooking the water is a hidden seating area that’s perfect for watching the sun go down. It’s a very funky area with a rustic nautical feel to it, using reclaimed scaffold boards for the decking. Also attached to this area is a fabulous shower and a sink for preparing the fish that the owners catch from a day on the sea. A paved area then leads you up the garden to the boathouse which contains storage for kayaks and paddleboards and a log burner for those chilly evenings.

The original door from the Italian garden has been used for the boathouse, with an added stainless steel porthole to give it a ‘beachy’ feel. Additional reclaimed scaffolding boards that have been sanded to clad the outside fell perfectly in this area. From here, some Millboard weathered driftwood steps lead you up on to a small decked area with glass balustrades that then follows on to the new lawn, planted with artificial grass. The sunken garden has now been raised and contains built-in seating with storage underneath, a wireless speaker system, RGBW lighting and a pull-out bar and barbecue. There is also a feature wall of vertical planting and Cor-ten steel panels which looks amazing. The existing wall was dropped in height and clad with cedar panels on the outside. This then follows on to two other decked areas, the lower of which is the same as the internal floor level. On the other side of the garden is a secret deck with rattan seating, accessed only from the dining room, that looks out to sea offering stunning views of the sunset in the evening. The two deck areas sandwich a 300mm deep infinity pond that has been rendered with a special black coating which will create a reflective quality to the water. A pond pump and UV filter will be installed to keep the water clean and clear. Local Purbeck stone has been used to border the pool and colourchanging lights have been installed. As well as being beautiful to look at, this garden is very functional, eco-friendly and planted with various herbs like rosemary and lavender that can be picked and used. There is also an auto-irrigation system in the back garden that is fuelled by the water harvesting system that collects rain from the roof and flushes any overflow into the sea.  Garden Designers: Peter Jenkins, Dorset Design & Build w: International Property & Travel

e start our voyage into the wonderful world of yachting by recalling a film from 2012 which many people hail as being one of the greatest Bond movies of all time, Skyfall. Starring alongside actor Daniel Craig in his role of 007 was ‘Regina’, a simply stunning sailing yacht which is now available for new ownership. Regina was built in Bodrum, Turkey in 2011 and refitted just last year. The classically designed schooner measures 56 metres in length and 9.5 metres in width and has a maximum speed of 12 knots. Below her immaculate teak decks, spacious, grand and elegant interior design features the finest mahogany, marble and onyx. Up to 12 people can be accommodated on board in a total of six cabins. The master cabin even presides over its own lounge as well as having a private dressing closet. Various indoor and outdoor areas provide ample space for relaxation, sunbathing and making the most of life afloat. Should you tire of listening to the wind in the sails and watching the sun rise and set over the horizon, Regina offers a host of amenities such as satellite television, a high-end music system and a jet ski. £7.63m / €8.85m / $9.41m Engel & Völkers Yachting  International Property & Travel

Passion for perfection

While there’s no doubt that sailing is both challenging and exhilarating, the speed and versatility of a motoryacht is equally appealing. Fairline’s Squadron flybridge yachts attract a particular type of customer, someone who wants the security of wellproven design features as well as sophisticated advances in marine engineering. The design places heavy items such as fuel over the centre of buoyancy, which ensures renowned sea-keeping properties, a pleasant sound and low vibration throughout. The Squadron 78 Custom is equipped for relaxing and entertaining on a grand scale. One look at the huge flybridge gives the first clue to this remarkable yacht’s sociable intentions. Large, spacious entertaining areas are in evidence throughout the yacht

from the extensive saloon and upper deck areas, through to the light and airy private staterooms. All are created using exotic woods, hand-selected granite work surfaces and state-of-the-art design features. Elegant floating seat rests surround the yacht’s large teak feature table, where ‘secret’ lights in the table itself create a gently ambience for dining and socialising. The layout options are extensive and are a match for even the most creative brief. A consultant from Fairline’s Yacht Division can advise on three or four cabin layouts, numerous bathroom and galley configurations, separate walk-in wardrobes and the potential to extend the owner’s suite. You can even include an office should you really need to mix business with pleasure.

The location for Falconwood House is superb, situated on one of the prime estate roads bordering on to the golf course, and the property’s one acre south backing plot has been fully landscaped and planted. Hence the gardens create equally pleasing and more near reaching views across the fairways, both from the deep paved terrace and adjoining aforementioned infinity pool, which of course, has a spectacular waterfall feature and is heated for optimum comfort. The large detached family house comes with some grandiose proportions, with all the principal ground floor rooms offering four metre ceiling heights. There are five double bedroom suites, five reception rooms, a lavishly equipped kitchen with informal dining area, a cinema room, and separate staff accommodation. An integral garage, accessed by a sweeping drive from the private electronic entry gates, has ample space for three cars.

The car As existing customers know, there’s something rather special about collecting a supercar from H.R. Owen. The company specialises in high performance makes, so the car itself will be sure to delight. But the attentive service and attention to detail of H.R. Owen’s staff also makes a world of difference. Now you can experience the same service and thrill with H.R. Owen VIP Services’ luxury car hire. The only difference being that you’ll be bringing the car back a day, weekend or perhaps a week later. Consider it an appetiser for the full ownership experience if you will. Many customers are regular users of the company’s hire service; if you have guests arriving for the weekend, it’s useful to be able to hire a four-door car in place of your own high performance two-seater, knowing that it will be prepared and valeted to H.R. Owen VIP Services’ standards. Alternatively, if you own a saloon, but fancy a taste of supercar performance…well, why not? H.R. Owen’s Lamborghini Huracan Avio is one of only 250 examples worldwide.

Properties close to the banks of the iconic River Thames, whether they are of historic importance or an impressive brand new build, never wane in popularity due to their stunning views

he Thames forms part of the longest river in England, starting as a gentle trickle in the Cotswolds it travels for approximately 210 miles. During this journey it passes through three areas of outstanding natural beauty and the centre of London before eventually running into the North Sea. Few people realise that the Thames is also the only river in Europe to have a national trail following its entire length. Those who own a property along its banks are in a fortunate position in more

ways than one. John Fisher, Head of Country Office, United Kingdom Sotheby’s International Realty explains, “Riverside properties, particularly those on the Thames, have long commanded a premium, due to the picturesque surroundings and spectacular views offered by a prestigious waterfront location. Not only do these properties offer a fantastic lifestyle, but they also provide a lucrative investment opportunity; demand will always be high as riverside homes very rarely return to the market.� International Property & Travel

Louis Aldred, sales and marketing director at Berkeley Homes (South East London), reports that, when looking for a new apartment in London, views are one of the most important aspects that buyers look out for. “None are more spectacular than those that include the River Thames and some of London’s most iconic landmarks,” he says. Taking all these facts into account, it comes as no surprise that Thames-side properties command premium rental prices. Foxton’s Pimlico & Westminster office lettings manager, Gareth Mawdsley, explains. “Waterside developments like Riverwalk are in high demand – we usually let one-bedroom apartments in these kinds of developments even before they go live on our website. Especially popular with Middle Eastern and Asian students and professionals, such developments offer bright accommodation with incredible views of the River Thames and other famous London landmarks. “A waterside location is also known to help encourage a sense of relaxation and inner piece, which is particularly soughtafter in the busy capital city. Despite their central location, riverside developments are very safe, benefiting from concierge services and secure underground parking, which is of major importance for professionals and corporate tenants using these apartments as pied-a-terres when visiting London. “Waterside developments are also rare, which increases their desirability even further. In fact, Riverwalk is the last new riverside development north of the river from Westminster to Chelsea Harbour – there is no more scope to build a development scheme within this stretch of the river front.” 96

Ten Trinity Square, EC3N This Grade II* listed building in the heart of the city, is being transformed into an exclusive residential address. Formerly the Port of London Authority, Ten Trinity Square is in an unparalleled riverside location, only a stone’s throw away from the Tower of London. It includes 41 fully-serviced residences, all with access to a dedicated concierge service, private members’ club, spa including two pools and a gym and the Four Seasons Hotel at Ten Trinity Square. Here, world-famous three Michelin-starred chef Anne-Sophie Pic will open her restaurant, La Dame de Pic. From £5m / €5.82m / $6.25m

We explore the British Overseas Territories in the Caribbean, taking in delightful destinations such as the Cayman Islands, Antigua, Barbados and the British Virgin Islands

N Above: Mahoe Bay, Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands

amed as one of the top billionaire playgrounds by Forbes magazine, Antigua, one of the Leeward Islands located in the West Indies, is home to numerous celebrities and captains of industry and a favourite of elite travellers. The island, a 9 × 12-mile stretch of hills with a jagged coastline, claims famous residents and visitors such as Eric Clapton and Oprah Winfrey and is known for multi-millionaire manors like the Mellon estate at the exclusive Mill Reef Club. Over in Barbados, the parish of St James is becoming increasingly known as a haunt of the rich and famous as well as a haven for

sun-seeking tourists. St James was known as the Gold Coast but due to its ongoing popularity it is now referred to as the Platinum Coast, reflective of the parish’s many beachfront mansions, pristine beaches, superb hotels and consistently high land prices. St James also has great historic significance, as it was here that the first British settlers landed in 1625. Under the authority of King James, the British claimed Barbados upon landing in St James’ present-day city of Holetown (formerly Jamestown, named after the King himself ); this settlement turned Barbados into what would later be known as ‘Little England’. As for the British Virgin Islands (BVI), here the past and the present combine with ruins remaining alongside magnificent resorts that attract visitors from all over the world. Comprising four main islands and over 50 smaller ones, the BVI are part of a volcanic archipelago. The largest island, Tortola is ever-popular for its white sand beaches, lush green mountains and sheltered harbours filled with yachts. Interestingly, the shape of the BVI’s third largest island, Virgin Gorda, reminded Christopher Columbus of a well-rounded, reclining woman, and it was this that is said to have been the inspiration for its name. Measuring 8.5 square miles, Virgin Gorda is renowned for its yacht clubs, quiet coves, safe anchorages, highend resorts and superb villas. Our final destination for this particular resume of the ‘British Caribbean’ is the Cayman Islands. Grand Cayman, the largest island of the three covering 76 square miles, is known for its fabulous beach resorts and varied scuba diving and snorkelling sites. On the west side of Grand Cayman is famous Seven Mile Beach. This crescentshaped natural wonder is often rated as one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean as well as being the least populated. International Property & Travel

The renovations have added a number of new cottages which now total seven en suite bedrooms. Other outbuildings include a laundry and staff room, separate gardener’s cottage and a garage. As the property is surrounded by Sandy Lane Estate, the owners allow a wellknown Cricket Academy to use the professionally laid cricket pitch and pavilion in one of Cockade House’s lower fields. The main house retains the beautiful Palladian style of Messel’s design and consists of a formal sitting room leading to a spacious informal sitting and dining area.

Indian inspiration

A vast country with a magnificent diversity of landscapes, India has a vibrant and colourful culture rooted in tradition


he possibility of high capital appreciation, large ticket size, increase and returns, high rental yields and tax benefits make India real estate extremely attractive for high-end buyers. Ashwin Chadha, president of North India Sotheby’s International Realty comments, “A broad profile of Indians are looking into buying high-end properties in India, these buyers range from high net worth individuals, business owners, investors, CEOs, CXOs, entrepreneurs, corporate professionals and investment bankers. There is also a large component of non-resident Indian buyers living in the UK, USA, Australia, Singapore and the UAE who like to invest in their hometown.” The Government of India has recently taken several initiatives to encourage development. “For example,” says Mr Chadha, “The Smart City Project, a plan to build 100 smart cities, is a key opportunity for real estate companies. Similarly, lowering the home loan interest rate, the Real

Estate Regulatory Act, Goods and Services Tax, and the enforcement of Banami Transactions Amendment Act are other major steps the government has taken to significantly uplift the real estate industry. “Many international firms have entered Indian cities such as Grand Hyatt with Fosters Partners architects in Gurgaon, Trump Towers in Pune, Four Seasons in Mumbai and Armani Casa in Mumbai. Moreover, there is the arrival of professional property consultants with international exposure and high credibility who are able to market and sell properties to the right clientele. Consequently, this has increased consumer confidence across India real estate.” Small towns and suburban areas with great connections to metro cities have emerged as popular destinations in India both for residential and commercial properties. “The largest example of this,” reports Mr Chadha, “is Gurgaon’s transformation from an economical wasteland to ‘The Millennium City’ symbolising ‘Rising India’, over the last two decades. Gurgaon is now considered a major commercial, industrial and IT hub with over 500 businesses situated in the town and major real estate companies have residential and commercial projects there too. “In terms of infrastructure, the town has upgraded its expressways, metro services, proximity to NH-8 and its availability of social amenities. Gurgaon now features impressive apartments fitted with modern amenities, high-end department stores, gourmet dining in world class restaurants and exciting nightlife. Gurgaon has even ensured luxury living is possible for middle class residents, as the gradual liberalisation of the economy over the past two decades has led to the rise of affluent classes.” International Property & Travel

The Palace on Wheels

This fabulous train enables guests to discover India in the lap of luxury, travelling in the bygone style of the former Maharajas. They stay at the 5-star Claridges hotel in Delhi and enjoy a rickshaw ride through the colourful bazaars, before being transferred to Delhi’s Safdarjung Railway Station to step aboard the Palace on Wheels and begin the week-long passage across Rajasthan. An overnight journey delivers passengers to the ‘Pink City’ of Jaipur where there is the opportunity to explore the Palace of the Winds and the Royal Palace and to see the Amber Fort by caparisoned elephant. A new day brings new destinations – Sawai Madhopur and the wildlife sanctuary of Ranthambore National Park, home to more than 300 species of birds as well as tiger, hyena, jackal and fox. Further highlights are: the stunning Lake City of Udaipur; a camel ride in the sand dunes of Jaisalmer in the heart of the Thar Desert; the grand palaces of Jodhpur; and a visit to the world-famous bird sanctuary at Keoladeo Ghana National Park. The fitting finale to this spectacular rail odyssey, however, is Agra to witness one of the ‘seven wonders of the world’, the Taj Mahal, and Agra Fort. With weekly departures between September and June, the train has just 14 fully air-conditioned deluxe saloons, all named after the former Rajput states with interiors that match their historic past. Each compartment has its own bathroom and there is even a spa available. A personal steward is at passengers’ beck and call and there are two lavish restaurants and a well-stocked bar.

Head in the Clouds

Shakti’s latest itineraries offer the experience of being accompanied on its signature village walks through the little known Kumaon region by a personal yoga and meditation teacher against the backdrop of the awe inspiring snowcapped peaks of the Himalayas.

Accompanied by local porters and guides, a private chef and your own guru, guests walk between

remote villages, staying in traditional houses that Shakti has spruced up to provide serious comfort without compromising on authenticity. For the more active guests, Shakti offers trekking and camping in remote but beautiful locations with the chance to spend the night in a tented camp set up exclusively to enjoy outstanding mountain views and some of the clearest night skies to be found in the world at altitudes of up to 6,000 – 14,000 feet.

The Ultimate Travelling Camp

As one of the leading, award-winning specialists to the Subcontinent, Greaves India will carefully plan the perfect tour to suit any interest. With over three decades of experience and a host of specialist guides, each tour is bespoke. Tours can range from a private jet tour covering vast distances that are otherwise impossible to reach within a modest time frame, to off the beaten track tours of ancient cities, little known wildlife sanctuaries, secluded rustic beaches and even a private train carriage. As an example, the Ultimate Travelling Camp is based in the remote and beautiful corners of northern India, Ladakh. This is true glamping – just like the travelling kings of old. Guests may choose from The Chamba Camp Thiksey, Ladakh which sits at the base of the mighty Thiksey monastery in an idyllic meadow setting in the Leh region. They can also head over the high mountain passes and into the deep interiors of Diskit into the enchanting Nubra Valley where the second Chamba Camp is based. Both camps combine to make a fully and vibrant itinerary and operate throughout the summer months. From £3,550 / €4,120 / $4,375 pp  International Property & Travel

man has a current population of just over four million and, as it doesn’t have the vast oil reserves of its neighbours, is fast diversifying to ensure ongoing economic prosperity. Tourism growth is being encouraged through the development of top hotels as well as new international airports in both the capital city of Muscat and Salalah. Steeped in tradition yet modern in outlook, Oman is a forward thinking and culturally diverse nation. Its major cities all offer comprehensive shopping and recreational amenities. There is also an array of art galleries and museums to enjoy and of course the world famous Royal Opera House in Muscat. Above all however, it’s the friendliness of the Omani people that keeps visitors coming back for longer and longer stays. The Sultanate’s booming multicultural waterfront community Al Mouj Muscat has transformed the real estate sector in Oman, prompting a range of tourism specific and related projects, showing potentials for growth, attracting foreign investment and creating employment opportunities. As Oman’s lifestyle and leisure destination, Al Mouj Muscat bridges people, businesses and culture. It has already brought together a diverse community of more than 7,000 people of 70 nationalities, providing a truly multi-cultural environment.

he 2016-2017 International Property Awards has now concluded following an extensive series of judging and glittering regional presentation dinners held in Kuala Lumpur, Dubai and London. We are now able to reveal the three ultimate World’s Best Award winners as well as those who have achieved a prestigious International Property Award. The World’s Best Property was awarded to Joseph Leone Le Palais Royal. Located in Hillsboro Beach Florida, Le Palais Royal took over 10 years to complete. The stunning result is a chateau with all the conveniences and technology of the 21st century yet which provides the charm and intricate detailing of bygone eras. The World’s Best Architecture award was won by King’s Cross Central Limited Partnership for its project Gasholders London. Built within a refurbished triplet of Grade II-listed cast iron gasholder guide frames at the heart of King’s Cross, part of the architects’ vision is that the building’s façade appears alive and responsive to passers-by, while most of its 145 residences have private balconies or terraces with views across the capital. The World’s Best Interior Design award was won by Alexander Wong Architects for Carmen Futura. Inspired by films made famous by an acclaimed film director, Carmen Futura presents a futuristic fairytale within Cinema City Langham Place in Hong Kong. It will be tomorrow’s ‘Vertical Cinema City’, benchmarking a new era in cinema development. Many congratulations to all those companies listed in this publication and may they enjoy continued success in the future,

In 1985 he started his own high fashion jewellery design and manufacturing company in Marseille, working with the world’s biggest names in French haute couture, before successfully introducing his creations to the USA. More recently Joseph designed and built the award-winning Le Palais Royal – the most expensive and extraordinary home in America. Located in Hillsboro Beach Florida, Le Palais Royal is on an exclusive peninsula bordered by the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the Intracoastal Waterway on the other. As the only property with nearly 400 feet of oceanfront and a deep-water dock in the entire Gold Coast, it offers total beachfront privacy with no public access.

Le Palais Royal took over 10 years to complete as Joseph’s client wanted to build a legacy that would stand for many hundreds of years. Therefore the newest technologies were incorporated alongside old-world construction methods. Only the finest materials were sourced before being used by the best craftsmen personally selected from across the world. Each and every room in the chateau was approached as its own individual project with soundproofed walls and floors, handsculpted millwork and gold leafing applied throughout. The simply stunning result is a chateau with all the conveniences and technology of the 21st century yet which provides the charm and intricate detailing of by-gone eras.

Vinhomes Central Park was conceived with the ambition of pioneering a visionary lifestyle and painting a new face for Ho Chi Minh City. The residential complex is located in the city centre and includes a wide range of first-class facilities.

Vinhomes Times City – Park Hill


 H  the second phase of Vinhomes Times City which is situated on the south-eastern gateway of the capital, Hanoi City. It is destined to be one of Vietnam’s most desirable urban communities and covers an area of over 7.4 hectares. Park Hill follows Times City’s master concept which includes a main central road, perpendicular second alleys and several condominium buildings. Nevertheless, over 70% of the project’s area is reserved for landscaping. Believing that landscaping is more than just scenery, the talented team of architects at Park Hill have created a living space in which humans and the environment have a truly interactive relationship. The superiority of Park Hill’s design lies in Vinhomes’ intent to integrate nature into the living spaces. Thus, the entire area will be covered by diversified species of flora featuring a number of specific highlights. These include the

iconic clock tower, panoramic green hill, huge splash park, various water features and modern outdoor and indoor swimming pools. Dispersed in between the buildings are recreational areas, sports facilities and children’s playgrounds amongst intimate gardens and quiet relaxation areas. All the surrounding areas are designed with paved walkways where pedestrians will be protected from harsh sunlight by a wide selection of planted shady trees. A 15-metre high green wall near the barbecue garden and a ‘soft wall’ of linear trees will create a truly green feeling for the development. By incorporating soothing water features and green spaces with modern architecture, Vinhomes Times City – Park Hill will become a distinctly vibrant environment for its occupants to enjoy a world-class modern lifestyle that is second to none in South East Asia.

Two further prestigious design awards have now joined FDM Design’s already impressive list. The first is ‘Lake House’ which is in a fabulous location overlooking Canada’s beautiful Northern Lakes. Along with the clients’ request to maximise lakefront views, they desired a large, open, expansive space which would also reflect a feeling of intimacy and a human scale. Accordingly, FDM Designs has not only met but exceeded the challenging task of harmonising the modern home with its natural landscape with a carefully curated collection of furniture, artwork and

colours. Making the interior as one with its surroundings, it evokes a sense of peace while also inspiring thoughts of adventure. Chateau Le Parc is an elite event venue of over 35,700 square feet in Concord, Canada. Constructed to create a sense of grandeur and elegance, it also maintains the symbolic interweaving of historic and modern design. The space had to flow logically and functionally from one area to another while multi-functionality was a further major consideration. FDM Designs’ resulting sophisticated blend of minimalist shapes, opulent accents and classic, subdued colour scheme fuses classic style with contemporary concepts. Capturing the unique essence of the event business, this design makes a lasting impression on all who step through the door.

The company’s two latest awardwinning projects were both for The Hong Kong Jockey Club, one of the most recognised brand names throughout Asia. The first involved the design of a new leisure interior environment for the Club in Beijing, China. The client’s brief called for two existing venues totaling 1,088m² to be redeveloped into one new private dining venue named ‘The Capital’. This exclusive environment for the Club’s members and their guests features a range of different sized rooms to accommodate

80-90 people with a variety of table settings. Displaying creativity, quality and timeless elegance, the rooms provide different dining moods for both lunch and dinner experiences. The second project was to create a modern betting venue and a unique entry experience to the Club’s Happy Valley Racecourse, Hong Kong to attract members, horse owners and their guests. After considerable research to achieve the client’s goal, Inarc Design won the design competition for this new retail interior environment. The existing facility of around 50 years old was substantially renovated to provide a special venue in which members and their guests could enjoy city night-racing. Named ‘The Members Entrance’, its design reflects the mood and excitement of horse-racing in Hong Kong.

For the first time ever there will be the opportunity to live on Australia’s world famous Gold Coast beachfront enjoying superb five-star Wanda Vista resort luxury. Soaring to an exalted 170 metres high, “Jewel’s” three crystalline towers are designed to appear as if they have simply emerged from the sands below. A geometric, almost miragelike façade that will stand as a beacon for maritime traffic on the Nerang River

Lavishly-appointed apartments will be graced with timber or natural stone flooring and kitchens and bathrooms featuring beautiful marble and onyx surfaces. These will be offset with sophisticated tapware, basins and fittings designed exclusively for “Jewel”. Each opulent sky high home enjoys privileged access to private pools, bars and restaurants and exclusive concierge services. Towering over sand and surf, the majestic crystal triptych will enrich Australia’s Gold Coast when completed in 2019, positioning it as a beacon for luxury property development across the world.

The company’s mission is to enhance the lives of its clients by creating homes that are uniquely tailored to their lifestyle, aspirations and personalities. Thanks to a team of 24 experts, Design Intervention is no stranger to changing lives forever. Four such successful projects are The Modern Chinoiserie House, Balmoral Apartment, Mount Faber Apartment and its very own Design Intervention Studio in Tanglin Village. The Modern Chinoiserie House is a twostorey property belonging to a Singaporean couple with four children. Every room in the house has a feel all of its own, with individual attention lavished on each single item within the property, whether it be a bronze leather stool or bistro table. While some rooms such as the kitchen are necessarily clinical, though nonetheless stunning, other areas primarily designed for periods of relaxation are a multicolourful mix of soft furnishings. Design Intervention shaped all areas of the four-

bedroom house, along with four bathrooms, a master study, a children’s study and a sizeable family lounge. Equally remarkable in quality is Mount Faber Apartment, another Singapore residence. Once again, Design Intervention pushed the boundaries of its own creativity to produce another top quality product. Compared to the interior design at The Modern Chinoiserie House, Mount Faber has certainly a more modern feel and appearance, though no less homely. Mount Faber is also on two levels: Downstairs is glossy, smooth and polished, while the three bedrooms and upstairs study possess a softer and calmer ambience. More than 6,000km from Singapore, and with a three-hour time difference, is the Balmoral Apartment in New South Wales, Australia. On the outskirts of Sydney, and close to Balmoral Beach, this deluxe residence

is another brilliantly designed property where east was commissioned to meet west. The clients, a retired couple who have lived in the area for more than 20 years, purchased this apartment that is large enough to cater for their growing number of grandchildren. The brief was to inject a touch of Asia and, once again, Design Intervention delivered another exotic habitat. Possibly the highlight of the entire experience is the wonderful outdoor terrace high above Sydney’s Middle Harbour which combines soft chairs, sensible tables and cultivated shrubbery. Finally, back in Singapore, is Design Intervention’s own single floor studio that was once a British Army barracks in colonial days. However, it is now a mixture of hi-tech clinical workspaces and areas of soft fabrics and furnishing where some of the more relaxed company meetings can be staged.

Focusing on luxury residential construction in South Africa between Paarl and Franschhoek as well as Stellenbosch, Brick Art Construction (established in 2011) delivers building projects of the highest quality. The company is also recognised for its outstanding client service and attention to detail. Founded in 2009, Guardian Project Management offers bespoke turn-key services by combining the skills of leading architects, builders, engineers and quantity surveyors. Through this wealth of experience, the company provides an independent and professional service to plan, lead, organise and control the management of projects from inception to reality. Located within Cape Town’s exclusive 1,000 hectare Val de Vie golf and polo estate, Valentia Manor stands on its own impressive

27 hectare estate. The property is like a metaphor for the Cape Winelands’ culture which dominates this picturesque region. Its scenic, almost one kilometer of Berg River frontage and the beautiful backdrop of the Cape mountains, set the tone for a breathtaking visual adventure. The manor house is an architectural fusion of European and Cape vernacular influences, mirroring the English and Dutch heritage of its owners. Architectural and engineering alchemy has been performed to create a striking salute to the elegant style of the typical French chateau. However, beneath the smoothly sculpted lines, are the very latest innovative technologies, ensuring that the home runs smoothly and efficiently. The clients’ brief for Valentia Manor was to create a residence which would hold its own, and even supersede, the best family lifestyle the world has to offer. Every effort also had to be made to follow the latest ‘green’ building

principles and practices. The aim was to establish a permanent ‘family haven’ for the owners, which would stand the test of time and always be a welcoming place for children, friends and family to visit. Visitors entering Valentia Manor are left in no doubt as to its pedigree with their first impression being that of the beautiful sweeping double free-standing staircase leading to the upper floor. Throughout the selection of fittings and fixtures and the application of finishes throughout the property, care has been taken to remain true to the French chateau theme. This has resulted in a seamless portrait of elegant European style. Wherever possible, in the construction process, strategic arrangements were made with suppliers to provide solid oak floors, marble, air-conditioning technology and Siemens’ appliances. While the ground floor is all about hospitality and entertainment, upstairs is a

haven reserved for the family’s living space. Boasting five sumptuous en suite bedrooms, it is an elegant retreat for the owners and their special guests. And, should family or guests be driven inside by inclement weather, there is always the 12-seater home theatre with its 4m x 2m screen to provide them with an authentic luxury cinema experience. A residence of this scale requires a lot of upkeep and so 24 staff are employed – six for the house and the remainder for the farm. The manor house staff are accommodated in a double-storey building and there are also six separate, two-bedroom guest cottages on the property. Further amenities include a drive-through stable block with 64 loose boxes, a farm store, an office building including indoor parking for 25 vehicles and a full-size, laser-levelled football field for the owners’ son and his team to play on while receiving expert training from a professional coach.

Located in front of the lagoon, the lobby concept was developed and inspired by the

freshness and lightness of water. The magnificence of the hotel is reflected in the welcome area with its 37 metre high ceiling and superb works of art.

Sultan Batterjee Park is an urban green space that Lifestyle Developers ‘wove’ into the fabric of a primarily ‘concrete’ residential area. It was donated to the community as a way of giving something back that would promote the residents’ wellness and raise their standard of living. The park includes features encouraging community gathering as well as physical activity, particularly for children who are commonly confined to play indoors. The project features a variety of seating areas built into the landscape using locally sourced wood. Respecting the challenging climate of Saudi Arabia, the park includes both soft and hardscapes to allow it to thrive in the

relatively harsh environmental conditions. The M Tower in Jeddah is a mixed-use commercial building by Lifestyle Developers. Located in a prime position on the intersection of two commercial streets, it is an 11-storey building comprising 88 offices, five retail shops, two cafes and open elevated terraces. At first glance, the development’s exterior resembles stacked, rotating boxes. This design gives a lightweight and soft aesthetic to the tower, while a heavy, stone clad base anchors it to the ground. By implementing larger setbacks on the street fronts, Lifestyle Developers has created a more pedestrian friendly environment. At the same time, green spaces and open plazas have been introduced to redefine and improve the urban nature of the street.

The company’s award-winning project DLR Lexicon at Dun Laoghaire, Dublin consists of a public library including an auditorium, gallery, café, library headquarters, car park and a new public park. The project’s brief was two-fold: firstly to reconnect the domains of town and harbour by means of a new public place anchored by a civic landmark, and secondly to provide a multi-media library and cultural hub for the whole community. The building is wedged into a granite escarpment and directly relates to the two levels of the park. Materials chosen

for its construction follow the traditional Dublin palette for public buildings – granite and bronze. The Lexicon’s design strategy is based on a philosophy of integration, where all elements, from the building structure, internal linings joinery and furniture each contribute to and amplify the design intent. A voluminous concrete shell has been rigorously engineered in order to form the space. The concrete is naturally white and lined with oak bookshelves and panels for acoustic modulation. Facing the sea and overlooked by the civic institutions of the town such as the church, grand hotel and town hall, the Lexicon takes its place as a 21st century archetype.

The award-winning mixed-use project caters for all basic needs of humanity providing everything from a place to live to a place of work. Here, the community can live, work and play in an environmentally conscious and technically advanced, sustainable haven. Right from the outset, the main goal was to raise the benchmark for urban design on both a local and international level. Waterfall was designed to grow with its community and integrate seamlessly with the surrounding infrastructure. Another goal was for the Waterfall development to remain on the forefront of innovation – not just now but well into the future.

Residential precincts offer a choice of lifestyles ranging from lock-up-and-go apartments to sprawling residential estates with generous plots of up to 1,500m². These have been combined with ample parkland with a number of recreational activities such as nature trails in the indigenous forest alongside the Jukskei River to fishing. Waterfall also has numerous office parks, commercial nodes, retail precincts and light industrial warehousing components, all of which are harmoniously designed. As an example, the inspiration for Mall of Africa is drawn from the natural and geological beauty of the African continent. This creates a commercial synergy in the context of its environment, energising the spirit of the shopper and complementing its surroundings.

Since then the company has provided clients with excellent quality projects, ranging from office buildings and small uniquely designed hotels to large residential developments and large urban planning. The company’s award-winning architecture and interior design project, ‘B54 – Recoleta’, stemmed from its client’s desire to design a new brand for a ‘gourmet hamburger experience’ restaurant. A vital part of the design was to grasp the identity of the brand, referring to both the quality of food and the young generation to which it was addressed. Based on this, Carla Bechelli created a modern aesthetic with dynamic and flexible spaces,

spatial fluidity and surprising innovative and original details. These include the recycling of colourful, used plastic beverage lids as decorative wall coverings. The existing building was deep and narrow with little visual connection between its three levels. By replacing the façade with glass, the interiors are bathed in natural sunlight. This has been emphasised by the triple-height glass roof and a glazed marquee. Natural materials were used to be in line with the ‘natural’ cooking/gourmet concept such as concrete, wood and steel. Additionally, an inner green plaza forms the heart of the project, bringing the green landscape inside. This responds perfectly to the client’s brief to offer a ‘respite from the hectic city life’.

  L is an architectural design practice based in Uruguay with more than 25 years of experience and over 1,500,000m² of buildings completed in seven countries. The company’s multi-award winning project Lux Punta Carretas is a new benchmark in sustainable, high-design architecture in Montevideo. The client, Sures Bienes Raices, commissioned the firm to design a multitenant office building in Montevideo that is also likely to accommodate a main tenant. As both businesses have their own different structures, functions and main goals, the design’s main challenge was to merge different requests while still achieving a unique aesthetic for this part of the city. One of the key considerations was to design the building so that it would fit

sensitively into the neighbourhood and existing landscape while also maintaining a consistent architectural language with surrounding buildings. Forming part of a new generation of midsize buildings in Uruguay, Lux Punta Carretas’ dramatic vertical garden extends to the full height of the building while its inclined floor-toceiling glass façade creates a striking, natural landmark. For Ponce de León, landscape is architecture, and so it has created a continuity between the park, trees and buildings where the facades literally extend the park into the sky. Ultimately, Lux Punta Carretas will form an outstanding silhouette in Montevideo while enabling its tenants to work in the city yet still reap the benefits of a natural environment.

   met in a path of creativity, building trust based on innovation. Urbn and Tresismo were founded in Monterrey, México to combine quality designs, professionalism, experience, family and human values; always searching to evolve in the design market worldwide. Their single goal: to make clients’ dreams come true. Urbn is an architecture firm with more than 20 years of experience. With the personal attention of Enrique Leal and using the company’s exclusive methodology, Urbn shapes dreams and offers a unique and incomparable signature design. Tresismo is an interior design studio with offices in Monterrey, México and Florence, Italy. The company is recognised for the experiences developed by its team directed by Sandra De La Torre. These enhance the quality of life of users, based on the userdesigner-maker synergy.

The award-winning project, Mar Muerto 700, is close to the mountains. This context influenced the selection of local materials for the interior finishes, furniture, accessories, textures and colour palette, so the interior becomes part of the exterior. The grey marble, volcanic stone and porcelain tiles resembling wood grain in some ceiling and wall elements, create the modern, minimalistic and raw look of this design composition. Proportion, natural light and functionality were the bases for the research applied into this interior design. This was in order to accomplish an environmental psychology related to a cosy, homely feeling. The spaces created by the architecture together with the interior design gave the desired result of comfort and aesthetics, making this residence a personal success for both the client and the team.

 A, based in Porto Alegre, Brazil, has presented two stunning, award-winning architectural projects. The first is Sense, a gated neighbourhood located in the seaside city of Xangri-La in south Brazil. The development has 144 plots for detached houses bordering a lake of around 35,000m². Its main concept is luxury and simplicity, focusing on each material’s inherent elegance. The design seeks to exude the very essence of Brazil through exposed concrete, wood and glass as well as the integration between the buildings and surrounding nature. Reinterpreting the traditional tropical veranda, the project creates transitional spaces that

allow contemplative views towards the lake and gardens while also acting as shelter for the interior spaces. The second award-winning project is The Esplendido Residencias, a hybrid building that unifies high-end residential and commercial spaces. Located in the main street of Novo Hamburgo city in Brazil, the development arose from differentiated spatial intentions for the apartments. The design’s initial guidelines were wide-open spaces, double-height ceilings, verandas and balconies that are integrated into living areas creating hanging gardens and with a focus on the user and their lifestyle.

  , Sarco Architects is a family-owned and run, boutique architectural firm located in San Jose, Costa Rica. It works exclusively with international clients, providing high-end custom architectural design services for luxury vacation homes and investment properties in Costa Rica, Panama and the Caribbean. Sarco’s award-winning architectural project, Casa Magayon, is within a dense jungle site in Papagayo, Costa Rica. The clients’ brief was for a vacation home to meet the needs of an extending family as their three children become adults. While it had to sleep up to 12 people and be familyorientated, the property also had to be flexible

in design to appeal to the luxury vacation rental market. The property’s hillside location determined the positioning of the driveway which in turn led to the home’s ‘upside down’ concept. Thus the main entrance is on the upper level along with the main social areas, providing the most impressive ocean views. The layout features two wings – the first being the main building and the second housing four guest bedrooms. Creating the desired tropical jungle feel, Sarco broke up the layout into two ‘pods’ within the guest wing, connected to the main wing by an external covered breezeway. This solution enables the couple to have a smaller home if there by themselves or a larger home if guests are staying.

  M, Red Group Luciano Gerbilsky is an architectural and interior design practice which takes pride in establishing exactly what each client requires before commencing work. The company’s award-winning project, Walden House in Valle de Bravo, is a fourbedroom weekend home for a couple with three children. Due to the young ages of the children, it was important to create connected spaces that could be utilised fully without feeling crowded. It was also vital to see the swimming pool from every angle. The initial concept was to create a house around an open social area with privacy provided in the bedrooms, each with its own

bathroom and terrace. There is a formal living room inside and another to the side of the pool under a high ceiling which gives the sensation of sitting outside while being shaded from the sun. This area has a fireplace enabling it to be used as an additional living area even during colder weather. Behind the open living room is the second dining area and grill where meals can be enjoyed without leaving the garden and pool area. A TV room has been located conveniently close to the social area but far enough away to avoid noise. The resulting design of Walden House has fulfilled the clients’ dream for a home where they can enjoy the company of friends and family in a beautiful setting.

It offers complete architectural and construction services in different segments including hospitals, education, entertainment, food services, logistics and a wide range of corporate projects including the following award-winning example. Audi commissioned Informov to design and construct the company’s new headquarters in Brazil, with responsibility for all phases from concept and construction until moving, overseeing all finishes, furniture and materials. The challenge was to translate the spirit of Audi’s brand pillars: Sportiness, Progressiveness and Sophistication. The great success of the project was the concept of “Audi Platz”, an area of

decompression with all the necessary infrastructure for both work and fun – a stage for presentations and bands, space to welcome the whole company for coffee breaks and snacks, video games, a snooker bar, and the perfect location for informal meetings. The main objectives were to achieve better synergy between the areas; improve the exchange of information among employees; increase overall productivity and creativity by introducing specific work areas, such as focus rooms, phone booths, collaborative areas; and for Audi to be able to proudly display a brand-new headquarters. Informov’s design and layout proved so successful that it has become the standard to be followed by all other Audi offices around the world.

  P  E, Maldonado, Uruguay, Estudio Cinco Arquitectos carefully considers each project’s site to determine different starting points for the ensuing architectural design. Its award-winning residential high-rise project Onix Punta del Este has been conceived on the basis of this approach to great effect. The 23-storey tower has become one of the first constructions to reach the newly permitted 63 metres in height. The building consists of a 15-storey tower standing 45 metres high (which complies to the former lower height regulations) supplemented by floors 17 through to 22. Due to its differential design, the project offers a varied typology of units and prices in accordance with the spatial

needs and costs typical of the peninsula. All suites face at least one beach while two apartments have views over both beaches of Brava and Mansa. The two exclusive penthouses on the 23rd floor also benefit from multiple orientations. This allows occupants to enjoy the beautiful sunrises and sunsets of Uruguay’s Atlantic Coast. Onix Punta del Este’s gym, spa and solarium as well as its indoor and outdoor swimming pools are all located on the 16th floor. This makes the project the first of its kind to locate its leisure amenities on one of its upper floors, providing a privileged orientation and stunning views. The combination of all these features has resulted in the building becoming a unique and spectacular addition to the town.

It is the first planned community in Mexico, where all of the urban, commercial, social, natural and aesthetic elements are designed in relation to each other. The aim is to create public spaces as a substantial part of the residents’ lives. The project covers over 1,200 hectares in which more than 45,000 families are going to live in the next 25 years. As a fundamental part of Zibata, the Town Center is the most important area to be developed in the project in which social

coexistence will take place for residents and visitors. It includes residential buildings, corporative complexes, commerce and services, all surrounded by the natural landscape that characterises Zibata. Technology is fundamental for the proper functioning of the entire project, ranging from construction and maintenance to management and sustainability. Furthermore, the design of Town Center was based on the sun’s orientation, to take advantage of the daylight and the shadow projected by the trees that will help to reduce the temperature inside the houses and other buildings. The idea is to achieve an eco-friendly design that promotes natural ventilation and reduces the need for air conditioning.

The company’s award-winning project Rossi Atlântida is in a highly desirable coastal location at Atlantida Beach in Xangi-la township, Brazil. The client’s brief was for Pedro Gabriel | Bonini Arquitetura to design a condominium resort development, complete with all associated leisure facilities and amenities on a 170,000m site. Due to restrictions imposed by the local urban planning authorities, an essentially horizontal volume was adopted for the architecture to meet the maximum height limit of just seven metres. Four condominium typologies were devised ranging from onebedroom studios or apartments through two,

three and four-bedroom apartments to fourbedroom houses. The apartment blocks consist of two floors each with ground floor units having a private garden facing the lake and second storey units having a balcony that gives access to the penthouse. The blocks of houses are composed by twinned floor modules, while a large lawn facing the lake, limits the private area of each unit. Totalling 456 apartments and 16 houses, the overall constructed area of 61,000m supports a generous, central condominium complex. This includes an artificial lake, a security cabin with access control, an administration office, squares, soccer and tennis courts, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a beauty salon, fitness centre and much more.
