Destination-wise, this issue could almost be divided into two parts – one for those who relish the buzz of city life and the other for those who crave peace, tranquillity and wide-open spaces. We first look at the beautifully regenerated area of London Docklands. Once part of the thriving Port of London, the ships and dockyards have now been replaced by high-end properties, offices, restaurants and wine bars. Continuing our city theme, we move on to explore the delights of Italy’s Florence, Milan and Rome before investigating the enormous property potential of Los Angeles, Boston and New York. Our feature on Australia then bridges the gap between the joys of living in glorious countryside or beachfront locations and remaining conveniently close to major cities such as Sydney. Changing pace entirely, we then focus on the islands of the Indian Ocean taking in serene retreats for sale in the Seychelles, Maldives and Mauritius. While researching another feature for this edition, I was interested to learn that wine has toppled classic cars from their leading position in terms of growth as a luxury investment. With this in mind we consult Bonhams to find out which wines are proving most popular at international auctions and offer different solutions for effective wine management and storage. What’s more, if you would like to try producing your own vintages, we spotlight fabulous vineyards on the market in Italy, France and California.

london Our new, regular feature views the capital’s prime locations as if from the comfort of an aircraft’s first or business class cabin. This issue we explore property in the hugely popular regeneration area of London Docklands


t was once part of the world’s largest port, the historic Port of London, and a bustling hub of imports, exports and manufacturing. Now, since the closure of all the major docks and many related businesses in the early 80s, London Docklands has been transformed into one of the leading financial centres across the globe. Chris Osmond, regional sales director of JOHNS&CO comments, “London Docklands attracts a real mix of buyers, from professionals working locally in Canary Wharf to buyers from overseas and tenants looking to purchase their first home given a wide range of properties and price points. We are noticing in particular that this area is a hotspot for professional workers that are on short to mid-term work placements in the financial district and are looking to buy rather than enter into traditional rental accommodation. “Today’s buyers are increasingly seeking ease of living, particularly at a time when working hours are more flexible than ever and as such, new developments are being designed with luxury and convenience in mind. Many of the larger developments offer hotel-style facilities including a concierge, leisure club and cinema on-site, adding extra value for residents. As buyer expectations evolve, developers are having to compete to offer the most unique and luxurious features that will accommodate modern lifestyles and enable the highest quality of living.”

One Park Drive, Canary Wharf a

Standing out amongst the area’s famous skyline, this eye-catching apartment building with its cylindrical appearance will form part of the new district of expansion. Meticulous attention has been paid to the design of this 58-storey building which offers 483 apartments, ranging from cleverly concise studios to spacious four-bedroom penthouses. Each will offer views over the surrounding Docklands and across London, while the layout of the building has been planned with privacy in mind, ensuring that no unit is overlooked. Residents will benefit from a lobby with concierge, a library, plus a screening room. There will also be a modern fitness suite, including a gym and 20-metre swimming pool overlooking the docks as well as a steam room and sauna. From £575,000 / €665,820 / $745,000 for a studio 

scotland STAY


like a laird Stuart Shield enjoys a stay at Skibo Castle near Inverness where the ultimate in Scottish hospitality is assured for members of the Carnegie Club


f any fans of Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh or the more recent worldwide hit period television drama Downton Abbey wished to experience what it was like to live in a grand household, I think it safe to assume not one would dream of being part of the downstairs life. The writer Julian Fellowes re-created the twilight years

of British titled and landed gentry from the early 20th century period just before the Great War until the early 20s. This was a time when privileged families living in country castles and mansions across Great Britain enjoyed all the trappings of wealth with a small army of maids, butlers, footmen, groundsmen and gamekeepers on hand to serve their every need. Fortunately, many of these country estates survive with some being in an excellent state of repair. Most are paid for by the tens of thousands of visitors who want to peek inside to get a brief sense of the life they could have had if born a blue blood over a century ago. Today a very small number of extremely wealthy individuals have acquired these grand properties, being fully aware that the expense and upkeep of the property and grounds amounts to the same as having the heating fuelled with bank notes.

he Netherlands is renowned for its marine engineering, a tradition being continued with pride by U-Boat Worx. Following a vision to create personal submarines that make access to the subsea readily available, Bert Houtman realised his dream by launching

the company in 2005. Over the years, the range of U-Boat Worx models has evolved to include personal submarines that can accommodate from one to nine people and operate to depths from 100 metres up to 2,000 metres. The Cruise Sub 5 – 1700 featured here has two large acrylic spheres, each accommodating two passengers. These spheres are connected through a steel cylindrical pressure hull in which the pilot sits. The sub enables users to dive underwater virtually anywhere in the world to a depth of 1,700 metres and can also be equipped with options like manipulator arms or underwater cameras. The comfortable interior includes leather seats and can revolve inside the sphere, always allowing passengers to have the best view regardless of the direction of travel. Complete with air-conditioning and a bespoke quality audio system, details such as the leather and colour scheme can be customised. Operating the submarine is very straightforward – following the completion of a two-week training course provided by U-Boat Worx, the pilot is ready for action. From £1.7m / €2m / $2.2m – £3.4m / €4m / $4.4m 

Data from the latest edition of The Wealth Report has revealed the value of The Knight Frank Fine Wine Icons Index, rose 24% in 2016, dwarfing its 5% growth the previous year. In contrast, classic cars increased in value by just 9%, falling from the previous year’s 17% growth. Bonhams holds seven sales a year of Fine & Rare Wines in London, with four in the USA and two in Hong Kong. These sales offer not only a wide range of Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, the Rhone and Port but also wines from Australia, Italy, Lebanon, Madeira and Spain. Bonhams International Wine Department is headed by Master of Wine, Richard Harvey, who comments, “People buy wine for a variety of reasons but in our experience the majority of clients buy to drink or, if they are hoteliers and restaurant owners, they are buying for other people to drink. There are people who buy to invest but they tend to do this on the advice of consultants and as part of a wider investment portfolio. Bonhams is always happy to discuss upcoming lots with collectors although we do » not offer investment advice.”

Wines at auction go in and out of fashion though the great names will feature in most sales

Burgundy and Bordeaux Mr Harvey says that wines at auction go in and out of fashion though the great names will feature in most sales. “Burgundy, for example, has been very popular over recent years, driven by demand from Asia and by its scarcity in comparison with its great French rival Bordeaux. The quantities of Burgundy produced each year are around one 10th of the size of Bordeaux - Château Lafite Rothschild might produce 20,000 to 25,000 cases (of 12 bottles) a year, Domaine de la Romanée Conti, the most celebrated vineyard in Burgundy, produces around 500 cases a year. To give some idea of its attraction to collectors, our past seven sales have each featured a 12 bottles case of Domaine de la Romanée Conti 1988, the selling price in the latest three sales being £141,500 a case.” It appears that, over the past 18 months, demand in the market for Bordeaux has strengthened. “Bonhams’ February, April and May sales 2016, for example,” explains Mr Harvey, “featured more than 400 cases from the five vineyards which constitute the First Growths – ‘Premiers Crus’ in French – in the 1855 official classification of Bordeaux wines. These, which are regarded as the greatest clarets, are Château Lafite Rothschild, Château Latour, Château Margaux, Château Haut-Brion and Château Mouton Rothschild. The wines sold out in their entirety, most for above their high estimates. This trend has continued throughout 2016 and into 2017.”

Mr Harvey reports that Champagne is also currently in demand with interest at auction centring on mature vintages from houses such as Krug, Louis Roederer and Dom Pérignon. He goes on to say that the wines of the Rhône valley, particularly Côte-Rôtie single vineyards from Guigal, Hermitage La Chapelle from Paul Jaboulet Aîné and Château Rayas from Châteauneuf-duPape are always sought after.

Super Tuscans

As for Italy, Mr Harvey reports, “Leading growers in Piedmont such as Gaja and wines referred to as super Tuscans (usually made from Bordeaux grape varieties often blended with the indigenous Sangiovese) such as Sassicaia, Ornellaia, Masseto, Tignanello and Solaia have always sold for high prices. From Spain, sought after Vega Sicilia from Ribera del Duero has been joined by Pesquera and Pingus, also worth noting Marqués de Riscal and Artadi from the Rioja region “Outside of Europe, the greatest demand for Californian wines remains in the US, sold in limited quantities to mailing lists on release, among these wines: Screaming Eagle, Harlan Estate, Schafer Hillside Select and Joseph Phelps Insignia. Australia is headlined by Henschke, as well as Penfolds, notably Grange (Shiraz or Syrah), but also Bin 707 and Block 42 Kalimna (both Cabernet Sauvignon): 12 hand-blown glass ampoules of the 2004 vintage from the latest wine were offered in 2012 retailing at around £100,000 each.” 50

Venice Art Biennale 2017 i

t’s the year of marine art. At the Venice Biennale crowds are flocking to Damien Hirst’s ‘Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable’, a

tableau of barnacle incrusted artefacts lost at sea. Hirst's installation, not part of the official Biennale programme, appears suspiciously similar to the Grenada pavilion ‘The Bridge’ created by sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor which features encrusted statues ‘caked in sea life’. Taylor founded the world’s first underwater sculpture park off the Caribbean island's west coast in 2006 and it is now an established part of the tourist trail. At least the controversy, highlighted by Artnet, may help spread Taylor's message about the fragility of the marine environment and coral bleaching caused by global warming. Venice is certainly at the forefront of this debate. As for the Biennale, best mug up in advance or you may find yourself drowning in what critic Matthew Collings has called, ‘discombobulated bric-a-brac with exotic meanings’.

CREATING THE CINEMATIC UNIVERSE Until September 3rd at the Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) Brisbane, Australia 


ust off your old Marvel comics - their value has probably been quadrupled by the largest ever museum exhibition devoted to the books, costumes, props and set designs from the iconic film series. The artists who translated characters such as Thor, Captain America, Hulk and Hawkeye to the screen are revealed in 400 exhibits including through storyboards, costume

and prop design, and special effects. Throughout the show the in-house GOMA cinema will show Marvel Cinematic Universe films, from Iron Man of 2008 to this year’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2.

Alberto Giacometti Tate Modern's staging of the first major UK retrospective of Albert Giacometti places him firmly among the greatest painter-sculptors of the 20th century. Born in Switzerland and raised on Renaissance masterpieces, Giacometti was to experience the full horror of the 1930s, the rise of Fascism and the Second War which cost 60 million lives and affected every human life. Most people will readily recognise his emaciated bronze stick figures reminiscent of holocaust survivors such as ‘Walking Man’ - ironically it's on the 100 Swiss franc banknote. Indeed, most of us only know Giacometti from the stick figures. This show, which assembles some 250 other drawings, paintings and models created over 50 years, is a chance to put that right. Until September 10th at Tate Modern, London 

Until August 28th at the National Gallery, London, UK  www.ipmag.

tional Gallery with a small show mainly of watercolours. It all hinges on a vast new tapestry, ‘The Caged Bird’s Song’, handwoven by Dovecot Tapestry Studio in Edinburgh. Reflecting Ofili’s interest in classical mythology and the stories and colour of the Trinidadian landscape that is his chosen home, the work evokes an Arcadian landscape with overtones of Gauguin and Matisse. The sublime weaving, with its flawless surfaces and palette created over two years, is the highlight that knits together Ofili's all too rough sketches and makes for a pleasant - and free - experience of the great art of tapestry work.

hile the kitchen is said to be the heart and hub of every home, the bedroom is a private retreat that should make us feel at our most comfortable and contented. Alexander Wong, a prestigious architect and interior designer based in Hong Kong, says, “Sleeping is a ritual and possibly the most important daily ritual of all. However, in a city that never really sleeps like Hong Kong, bedrooms become mere temporary sanctuaries for keeping us from getting slightly insane. Having said that, we still need to design them to the best of our ability and there

are numerous criteria to consider including lighting, ventilation control, temperature control, noise control and size of the views out (if any).” Alexander advises that there are no hard and fast rules in terms of bedroom lay-outs, although he does believe in Chinese feng shui or the art of geomancy. “One has to take into account the orientation, position of door and windows as well as other energy lines and gravitational pull aspects – mountains behind your back are supposed to be more beneficial for

example. This is in order to find the best layout for the bed and sleeping position of each room which should always be tailored for the individual. “Colour is a very personal matter and different for individuals, due to their ethnic background, gender and age. However, let’s try and break it down to paint, wall coverings, fabrics and furnishings, as colours do not mean much without clear specifications and until we know exactly where they are to be applied. For paint – Light Teal, Periwinkle and Beige Sand are very

popular now but Pure White, Dark Chocolate Brown, Flannel Grey, Chromium Yellow or Sky Blue are forever in fashion as far as colours for bedrooms are concerned. “Timber veneer is always a classic choice for wall coverings. I prefer not to use wall paper as it isn’t really suitable for the climate in Hong Kong but may work well elsewhere. If you feel adventurous, try high gloss timber or faux leather like stingray or even crocodile in ivory, dark brown or light grey colour tones.” While Teal Green or Peacock Blue are really popular colours for curtains and other fabrics at the moment, Alexander tends to favour beige, grey silks and chocolate brown sheers. “Unless you want to go for leather curtains of course,” he says. “For furnishings – perhaps adopt hand-made bespoke area rugs or carpets based on a painting or even a doodle by one of your family members – kids’ paintings could enhance the warm family feeling. But if you are unsure, go for light beige or dark mocha carpets, with the latter colour choice being slightly easier to keep clean of course.” As for flooring, Alexander suggests that, if wall to wall carpet is not an option, especially for those with allergies, natural timber flooring could be considered in a herringbone pattern. “Elizabethan parquet could also be an interesting design choice,” he says. “Lighting is everything and special scented candles (as inspired by Marcel Proust) are for some a must; micro spotlights and indirect lighting will add sophistication and layering to the space as well.” Last but not least, Alexander also suggests finishing touches such as a giant size black and white photo of sea shells, beautiful horses or nudes would prove an innovative addition to a bedroom. »

A bedroom should have an abundance of light and airiness to exude calm and serenity

Designing a dream

Sam Abbas Design Studio t: +92 21 3587 8232 e: 

The renowned Sam Abbas Design Studio works on projects worldwide with offices in Dubai, Karachi and New Delhi. Founder, Sam Abbas, says, “A client approaches a designer in search of a dream, an idea that is in their head and they seek our help to make it a reality. At Sam Abbas we strive to help the client achieve more than what they can dream or imagine. “When a client comes in with a design brief, the idea is to create a synergy between the client brief and envisioned design. There may be

instances when we have to guide and influence the client’s ideas to achieve the core concept of providing high end interiors balanced with ergonomics exceeding the client’s expectation.” Sam advises that space planning is the most vital aspect of designing any room. “Bedrooms are considered to be our private space,” she explains, “our domain and our comfort ground; the positioning of each furniture piece directly influences the kind of energy created in the bedroom. The bed should be the focal point with everything else working organically.” Inspiration often seems to spring from the most seemingly minute aspects of life, nature and art and can translate into breathtaking experiences and expressions. “Design is constant evolution,” continues Sam. “The new trends involve using various textures to create spatial differentials and the use of materials to identify, separate and expand spaces as opposed to constricting them using permanent structures.

“A bedroom should have an abundance of light and airiness to exude calm and serenity. The two main factors playing in this are colour and lighting. The colours used in any room are defined by the climatic conditions, client personalities and design language used in the room. Once we have gauged these factors we work to create a colour palette that is timeless and classic; one the client will never grow tired of. Multidimensional lighting is a very specialised and integral part of any interiors and more so in a multifunctional space like a bedroom. It can be a workspace as well as a relaxing space and needs to be equipped to cater to all of the client’s needs.”

with the design of product lines, seasonal collections directed to the house and lifestyle in the most diverse materials: acrylic, wood. With the firm’s growing success in this area there were then requests for the creation of ambiances in the residential area. Project after project, the studio was gaining experience and admiration in architecture and interior design and this generated invitations from business and commercial areas.

The desire to create objects and products from the 80s and 90s, which the partners gained from their international trips, remains to this day

International presence The internationalisation of the SA&V brand is a process of decades, but it was only in 2011 that it was systematised with the launch of SA&V International. Its central management is headquartered in Lisbon, but there are also two other operational centres; Zurich that covers all of Europe and the Chinese territory and San Francisco for the US market. Projects have already been implemented in Spain, Switzerland, the USA and China. In addition to this international expansion, there is another market segment that is very important for SA&V. This is the market that represents foreigners in Portugal. Customers who come from outside Portugal to live or buy second homes, and look to SA&V because of the experience and know-how that they recognise in this dynamic and innovative brand. Through this international growth the firm has already undertaken projects for clients in Russia, Germany, France, Switzerland, China, Ukraine, Brazil and Angola. Now the team, which currently numbers 22 staff, is led by the two founding partners together with younger partners Ana Camões and Francisca Perestrelo.

FERRARI closes

he Ferrari Owners Club GB celebrated its 50th anniversary this year with a special parade of 102 Ferrari cars across the Forth Road Bridge which was specially closed to mark the club’s half-century. As one of the oldest Ferrari Owners Clubs in the world, the FOC GB has over 2,750 members and a packed calendar of social meetings, track activities and regional events.

The FOC GB’s parade over the Forth Road Bridge included cars from Graypaul Edinburgh,

the official Ferrari Dealer for Scotland, as well as several very exclusive models such as the Limited Series LaFerrari and F12tdf, and a number of historic models, such as the 330 GT, 246 Dino and 308 GTB. The Forth Road Bridge was closed to allow the parade to pass from Edinburgh to Fife, heading north for a FOC GB track day at Knockhill Circuit. The event also pre-empts the official Ferrari 70th Anniversary UK Tour which takes place

from June to September at various locations around the country. The LaFerrari Aperta will headline Ferrari’s presence at the Goodwood Festival of Speed from 29th June to 2nd July, leading a parade of the most iconic road and racing Ferraris from the company’s past 70 years during each day of the event. Ferrari will also have a full display of the current product range at the event, including the new GTC4Lusso which makes its dynamic UK debut there.

being lashed by wind and rain. The height of luxury was when car manufacturers put roofs over the chassis to cover the occupants. Many of the early cars had rudimentary removable tops and offered the best of both worlds and over 100 years on, there are 41 different new convertible cars available. You may expect countries with low rain fall and lots of sunshine to have the largest numbers of soft tops but this is not always true. The United Kingdom, although not renowned for its clement or warm weather, has the highest ratio of convertibles on the road of any country in Europe.

Each of the three boats has its own skipper and chef (they have private quarters away from the guests at the front of the boat), and guests are free to help out, learn to sail, or simply relax and enjoy the scenery as they cruise around the Ionian Islands. These including Corfu, Paxos, AntiPaxos, Levkas, Meganisi, Kefalonia, Ithaca and Zakynthos. The boats also have 30 knot speedboats and other ‘toys’ tucked away inside them, so that guests can enjoy watersports including water-skiing, paddle boarding, windsurfing and snorkelling. Most meals aboard can be enjoyed ‘al fresco’ and include barbecue facilities. If you can tear yourself away from the yachts there are beautiful villages and tavernas to explore, unless of course you just want to find a private sheltered bay to enjoy some serious peace and quiet. From £580pp / €665 / $750 for a three-

night break or £1,140pp / €1,305 / $1,470 for a seven-night stay (both prices based on two people sharing a cabin and full occupancy but without flights) 

Hot CITY in


The Italian cities of Florence, Rome and Milan are becoming increasing popular as places to stay for rather longer than a fleeting visit


f you’ve spent many happy holidays in Italy and often considered buying a property in one of its prime locations, now could be a good time to turn that dream into a reality. Lynne Davie of Beauchamp Estates, Florence, reports, “Italian property prices are still slightly declining, but the rate of decline has slowed particularly in key cities like Rome, Florence and Milan.

Many Italian cities, but especially Florence, remain popular due to the rich history, art and culture. “This, coupled with a growing new trend for smaller second homes in cities rather than larger isolated country villas, is a key driver. Apartments in the city provide an increasingly easy ‘lock and go’ second home and can have a lower purchase price than many estates, making cities like Florence a highly attractive and viable investment. With Florence being one of Europe’s tourism capitals and having an ever-growing number of foreign students, the opportunity for rental investment has also increased: particularly for buyers with a euro-denominated currency, Florence can be great value.” As for Milan, Yulia Kozhevnikova, real estate expert at overseas property broker, says, “The most popular property type is renovated historic apartments. There is a large demand for apartments in buildings dating from the late 18th and early 19th centuries. There are a few villas within the city but they rarely come to the market.” Ms Kozhevnikova advises that Italian buyers account for 85–95% of investors on Milan’s property market, with the small percentage of foreign buyers coming from Northern Europe, France, Switzerland, Germany, China and Russia. “Prices per square metre in Milan vary from €2,500 to €13,000,” she says. “The most prestigious neighbourhoods are Scala (around the famous opera house) and Quadrilatero della Moda (the fashion quarter). Exclusive addresses are also found in the Brera district (up to €10,500 per square metre) and the San » Babila district (up to €9,500 per square metre).” 93

When in Rome

The main market for Maurizio Pezzetta, owner, La Commerciale SRL, affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate, concerns high-end properties in prime locations. “Prices can vary between €7,000 and €12,000 per square metre,” he explains, “with homes in really unique locations commanding around €20,000 per square metre. Nonetheless, even the top end of the market has been affected by macroeconomic factors and prices have been reduced. However, this has created opportunities for investors and now it is a good time to buy beautiful properties in locations where in the past, they were unavailable either because homes were not on the market or sold to someone close to the property. “In Italy, our overseas buyers tend to be British, but also Dutch, Scandinavians, Russians, Indians, Chinese. The majority of foreign clients prefer, in cities like Rome, a property in a historical building on a high level, preferably a penthouse with a panoramic terrace. In fact, in Rome it is possible to exploit the terraces a lot thanks to the good climate.”

Indian Ocean islands such as the Seychelles, Mauritius and the Maldives offer a fabulous lifestyle as well as a host of stunning waterfront properties


he third largest of the world’s oceanic divisions, the Indian Ocean’s boundaries have Asia to the north, Australia to the east, Africa to the west and the Southern Ocean stretching to Antarctica to the south. Covering such a vast expanse, an ocean such as this has many islands just waiting to be explored by holidaymakers and prospective property purchasers.

Starting with Mauritius, Julian Walker, director of Spot Blue International Property, explains the island’s appeal, “No housing or property tax, no inheritance tax on properties purchased and no capital gains tax speaks directly to property investors and home buyers, particularly those looking to relocate for retirement or simply a highly appealing lifestyle in a sought after international location. “Coupled with this, for a minimum investment of $500,000 – assuming you retain your property acquisition – foreigners are entitled to a residency permit and may then apply for a Mauritian passport after five years. The low tax rates encourage business formation and naturally appeal to retirees, while the island’s corporate tax rate of 15 per cent has made it attractive to foreign investors. There is also no withholding tax on dividends.” The prospect of lucrative rental returns is another aspect worth considering. Marco Bonini, sales director of Soneva Residences in the Maldives, says, “The amazing lifestyle that can be enjoyed in the Maldives is a key reason why people invest here. Our owners also benefit from good rental returns, typically around 4-5%, » after all costs.

“As Soneva is a globally recognised brand we have a very good all yearround occupancy. We do not rely solely on one region for guests. We have European, Scandinavian, Middle Eastern, Russian, Chinese, Japanese and American nationalities staying, which drives rental returns for the owners of our residences.” Peace and quiet and an escape from the pressures of everyday life is yet another of the islands’ main attractions. Kristell Thornton, director of Second Home, believes, “Luxury is now defined by the lack of neighbours, noise, intrusion and sight pollution - luxury is redefined by having access to high-end services and up-to-date technologies in a purely natural environment where beauty reigns. The Seychelles and the development of Zil Pasyon provide exactly that. “Zil Pasyon provides the quality services of a top branded resort in a very unique island. Only 17 residences in Phase I and a maximum of 28 residences in total is permitted for the entire 286-hectare island. This is the only development announced so far if you want to be in the Inner Seychelles, and a stone’s throw from Iles Coco which is considered some of the world’s finest diving sites.” »

Los Angeles, California

ities of this calibre require little introduction; even if you haven’t visited them in person, the chances are you will have seen them countless times on screen. So, how does the reality of life in one of these famed city centres shape up to its movie persona? Take Manhattan for example, which is the most densely populated of New York City’s five boroughs. Richard Wallgren, executive vice president of sales and marketing for Macklowe Properties, one of the co-developers behind 432 Park Avenue in Manhattan, comments, “Prime cities are undoubtedly seen as desirable places to live and New York is no exception, a truly worldwide, global city that has always exerted a captivating appeal throughout the world. “New York is seen as a solid and resilient market to invest in and is therefore attracting a number of foreign buyers with many high net worth individuals expressing interest in large luxury apartments. 432 Park Avenue however has seen the majority of its buyers originate from within the US, perhaps due to its exclusivity and prime Park Avenue location. »

“There is a certain status that comes with owning a property at an address that everyone knows and recognises worldwide, hence the international appeal from Europe, Asia and Russia. The impressive connotations associated with landmark addresses such as Park Avenue, 5th Avenue and Central Park West, are irrefutable and underscore their existence as some of the most coveted street addresses in the world.” Mr Wallgren says that prices of ‘super luxury residential’ property seem to be stabilising with increased activity in the $30 to $70 million individual price bracket. “This pattern is echoing the solid gains in the US stock markets. Most economists are predicting a continuation of the steady, but measured increase in Manhattan super luxury pricing.” Diane M. Ramirez, chairman and CEO of Halstead Properties, reports that, post-election, she has seen a great deal of interest across all price points in New York City. “In Manhattan, the average apartment price reached a record of $2,174,105 in the first quarter of 2017. The luxury market is becoming more active, and buyers – whether they are searching for a $30 million, $12 million or $1.5 million property – want to see or feel that they are getting value.” People are still loving the newness of new construction, especially downtown. “In fact,” says Ms Ramirez, “just under 45% of all new development closings in the first quarter of 2017 were south of 14th Street, by far the most of any market in Manhattan.”

From NY to LA

The majority of property buyers in Los Angeles are American. “However,” says, Susan Smith, senior real estate advisor at Hilton & Hyland, affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate, “we are also seeing an uptick

Quietly situated in the private Campanile, a handsome 1927 building in a discreet location, this residence was home to the late Hollywood legend Greta Garbo for 40 years. The actress was drawn to the three-bedroom, three bathroom retreat directly above the East River partly because the passing boats reminded her of her native Stockholm. It has been meticulously maintained by Garbo's family and features a private elevator lobby opening into an expansive formal entrance gallery. A grand, L-shaped living room with working fireplace and a separate library/den area, is clad in exquisite knotty pine wood panelling, against which Garbo displayed her extensive collection of art. The walls of the master bedroom are adorned in Garbo's favourite rose-hued Fortuny silk, as is the headboard. At the opposite end of the apartment is a formal dining room, large kitchen with locking silver and wine cabinets and an eating area positioned to take full advantage of the river views. £4.7m / €5.32m / $5.95m

Boston is Massachusetts’ largest city and also its capital. Brian Dougherty, partner of Robert Paul Properties, reports, “We are seeing continued investment from international buyers particularly in luxury developments like the Millennium Tower and the to-be-built Four Seasons where the penthouse has reportedly been put under agreement for $5,000 per square foot; a significant jump from Boston's previous record high price per foot at the Mandarin Oriental. “Brownstones and townhome product at $3 million plus are attracting growing families who tell us they'd prefer to stay in the city versus previous patterns of moving outside to the suburbs. We continue to see buyers flock to real estate in neighbourhoods where they can ‘live, work and play’. We anticipate that The Seaport neighbourhood of Boston, along the waterfront, will attract more luxury buyers as General Electric moves their global headquarters.”

The tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere, 432 Park Avenue is a 96-storey, 1,396 foot tall condominium on Manhattan's famed Park Avenue, between 56th and 57th Streets.

in European and Chinese buyers in the first quarter of 2017. I think people realise you can work from anywhere now and the weather and lifestyle in LA is a big driving force for the new homeowners.” “I would consider in Los Angeles the luxury market to be $20 million or higher. When we compared the sales in the third quarter of 2016 to the first quarter of 2017 we had the same number – 10 sales in both quarters. The active listings on the market right now are 35 homes ranging between $20 million to $250 million. There are probably another 10 that are being quietly shown. We are still seeing a lot of buyers looking for either ready to move new homes or large properties owned for decades by families like some of the recent sales in Holmby Hills.”

The hotel offers respite from busy New York life for both visitors and the local community. Using the building's original industrial architecture as a reference point, the design brings the outside in to feature the raw beauty and imperfections of natural materials. These include wood, brick, marble, stone and glass from local suppliers, blended with original riveted steel beams and concrete ceilings. 1 Hotel Central Park offers 229 guest rooms, including 22 suites and one luxe Greenhouse Suite.

local craftsmen, offset by a colour palette of warm, neutral colours.

Southern Land We take a trip down under to explore the lifestyle and property purchasing potential of Queensland and New South Wales


ustralia with its glorious beaches, fresh air and wondrous weather has always attracted property buyers from every point of the globe, and now, it seems it’s not just for its aesthetic qualities. Linda Shore-Perez, director of Villa Real Estate, a boutique real estate company specialising in the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, explains, “What is not often talked about when discussing Australia’s finer qualities is its economic climate and its stability in the world arena. Factors driving the stability of the Australian prestige real estate market and particularly the

Queensland market include stable, low interest rates, the cash rate at a record low of 1.5%, major banks continuing to profit and asset prices remaining competitive enough to attract a competitive yield. “Queensland itself is especially attractive because of its lower purchase prices and forecasts for population growth. It also attracts a high percentage of expats wanting to land bank as well as foreign investment from emerging markets like China and India. The capacity to work from anywhere in the world with our current technology has also been a major factor in choosing Queensland as a perfect place to work and raise a family. “From magnificent country farms to homes on golden beaches, 86% of our clients last year were from interstate and overseas with our average sale being around $1.5 million AUD. This is still unbelievable value considering a recent home sold in Brisbane for a record breaking $18 million AUD. More and more of our buyers are seeing the value in property on the coast and savvy investors are realising the potential for further growth in the region, giving our buying clients confidence that not only will they own property in paradise but also » have a secure investment.” 125

Spoilt for choice

Further down on the East coast, Sydney is the capital of New South Wales and Australia’s most populous city. Nicolette of Unique Estates believes that this coastal area offers the greatest choice. “Of particular interest right now are lifestyle properties within one to two hours’ drive of the cities of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and the Gold Coast,” she says. “Areas to search for include the Northern Beaches of Sydney – including Palm Beach, Scotland Island, Whale Beach and Avalon; the Mornington Peninsula coastal region just one hour from Melbourne – including Sorrento, Portsea and Flinders; also the Melbourne hinterland regions of Mount Macedon and the Dandenongs; the Gold Coast hinterland – Tallai and Mount Tamborine; and the hinterland regions around Brisbane as well as the Queensland Coastal areas of Noosa and Port Douglas.” The penthouse and luxury apartment market in Australia offers a range of price points. “These range from around AUD$10,000 per square metre in Brisbane and the Gold Coast; from AUD$15,000 per square metre in Melbourne and from around $25,000 per square metre in Sydney,” advises Ms van Wijngaarden. “Most buildings offer excellent facilities including 24/7 concierge and large gymnasiums and pools as well as car-parking.”

Pittpoint Waters, Scotland Island, New South Wales

Against the backdrop of one of Sydney’s most sought-after island refuges, this property has impressive 180-degree views over Pittwater’s waterways to Church Point and across to Palm Beach. The Housing Industry of Australia was so enamoured by this pavilion-style home that it was awarded the titles of ‘2010 House of the Year’ and ‘Australian Custom Built Home of the Year’. Comprising five bedrooms and five bathrooms, the residence has been designed to ensure water views from every room. All finishes have been hand-constructed from only the finest timbers such as Sydney Blue Gum, kiln-dried Blackbutt, Northern Box and recycled Iron Bark. The master bedroom has a large en suite and balcony together with a cavernous private sitting room and office. A beautiful lounge area with floor-to-ceiling windows flows into a spacious dining area with both rooms connected via a wrap-around deck. Adjoining the dining area is a gourmet kitchen with a walk-in pantry. On the lower ground floor is a large games room, two en suite bedrooms, a wine cellar and laundry. A separate, self-contained, two-bedroom guest pavilion with kitchen, living area and balcony completes the property’s extensive amenities. £4.05m / €4.67m / $5.25m Unique Estates 

   the first to be judged in the 2017-2018 International Property Awards programme, setting a benchmark of quality and professionalism for others to attempt to exceed. Asia Pacific has been consistently strong

in submitting exemplary entries across the entire range of categories throughout the awards’ long history and I am pleased to report that this year is no exception. Judging has resulted in a number of multiple five-star award-winning entries including Tower 535 by Phoenix Property Investors. Located in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong, the landmark building has won two awards and will bring new Grade A office and highprofile retail space to the neighbourhood. Ashgabat International Airport in Turkmenistan by Polimeks has achieved an impressive three awards for public service categories. Its design is almost akin to a work of art with every aspect, both internally and externally, being focused on creating an optimum experience for passengers. PTang Studio has also won a trio of awards but across three different interior design projects. They range from a show home in Hong Kong and a mixed-use interior in the Philippines to a whiskey bar and lounge in China. These are just a few of the highest scoring Asia Pacific entrants who will go on to compete against other winning companies from Europe, the UK, Africa, Canada, the USA, Central and South America, the Caribbean and Arabia to find the World’s Best in each category. Tickets are now available for the grand final held on December 4th at the Savoy Hotel in London where the ultimate winners will be revealed. Visit to book. Many congratulations to all those listed in this publication,

What began with a spark‌ emerges as an icon.

The difference is Gaggenau. We have been perfecting one oven for 30 years. Our latest rendition accentuates its distinctive design: the door panel is now created from one imposing 90 cm wide sheet of 3 mm high-grade stainless steel. It represents one vast entrance to culinary potential. This remodelled, hand-crafted work of art represents the culmination of our finest principles, skills and ethos. We christened it the EB 333 in recognition of our 333 years of working in metal. This has always been more than an oven; it is a promise to create masterpieces.

Wah has won a trio of awards across two of its latest projects. The Spectra is the first West Rail’s residential development in Yuen Long and has a direct connection to the Mass Transit Railway (MTR) network – providing excellent access across the whole of Hong Kong. It features an all-weather covered walkway and footbridge exclusively for residents to access the Long Ping MTR station.

residential developments. The Spectra’s four colour-coded towers have 25 storeys (including G/F) each and provide a total of 912 units. In order to maximise the number of apartments with open views and to alleviate wall effect, the buildings have been carefully positioned and a low-density massing strategy was adopted as well. A 16-metre separation between the towers also creates three air corridors to optimise visual and ventilation impact for the development. To further enhance air ventilation at pedestrian level, the car park is located at basement level to avoid the need for a large podium. The Spectra offers a wide range of unit layouts, spanning studio flats, one-, two- threeand four-bedroom apartments – complemented by premium amenities such as a swimming pool and thoughtfully-designed clubhouse facilities.

 P,  in an arch form connecting the twin towers, is a 372-unit residential development located in the southern part of Tseung Kwan O. Development planning in this district has been centred along the MTR corridor. Twin Peaks is prominently located by the waterfront and within close proximity to the MTR station. Its ‘arch’ design not only creates a landmark in Tseung Kwan O South, but also offers a 360-degree view of the surroundings for residential units at high-zone. This concept was modelled on the archway of the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, France. The 22-metre wide archway starts at 18th floor level and continues upwards to the top of the building, creating a natural wind corridor below. The chic style of Twin Peaks has brought

a unique modern look to the town which started development since the 1980s, with a few existing residential complexes almost two decades old. For this reason, a dynamic urban environment was created to bring original and new communities closer to each other. A sense of pride and belonging as well as a common purpose in the community are further aims of the project as a whole. The twin towers have 22 storeys each and are connected by a three-storey podium at low zone. This contains the retail shops and recreational facilities plus a two-level basement car park. The highly sculptural form of the towers highlights a gateway at the low zone levels before morphing into the form of a butterfly hovering by the sea as it rises to the upper levels.

Seven Victory Avenue

  , Henderson Land is a leading property developer with businesses in Hong Kong and throughout mainland China. The company has achieved a total of seven awards across the following projects: One Prestige is an exquisite new residence at the metropolitan gateway of Hong Kong Island. The combination of elegant bronze metal and vertical lines create a simple yet elegant exterior to the mixed-use development. This verticality is carried through to the interior design offering a sense of continuity. Apartments maximise the use of space by adding practical yet thoughtfully designed elements. Features include an extendable kitchen worktop to the balcony plus ledged railings for evening drinks. The bathroom has a compact storage unit and a modern bronze coloured glass partition. Combined with consistent furnishing tones, spatial quality is given to every inch. No 6-22 Chung Ching Street is in Sai Ying Pun within a cluster of mid-20th century residential blocks. The new building is therefore

a statement of revitalisation as well as paying homage to the vernacular urban fabric of the north-western quadrant of Hong Kong Island. Once again, every inch counts in the apartments. They showcase a compact, functional kitchen design using wood cabinet doors, black reflective glass backsplashes and modern appliances. The bathrooms feature the overall colour palette using warm hued linear pattern wall tiles and flooring. Built-in furnishing creates space saving solutions and integrates all accessories into the general design. Located in the Ho Man Tin district of Hong Kong, Seven Victory Avenue provides a compact living home design in the city centre. Far from compromising on quality, it offers the perfect blend of tranquillity and metropolitan lifestyle. The single tower development offers 250 micro-apartments configured at just 161 to 390 square feet. These include units with one and two bedrooms and mini-studios. Designed with flexibility in mind, double volume ceilings create a sense of space while operable sliding partitions provide both free flow open space as well as compartmentalised areas.

8 Ka Shin Street

Novum East

Ka Shin Street is a new mixed-use development in the Tak Kok Tsui area in the Western Kowloon district. Large openings and pathways between the buildings will allow cross ventilation across the sites to enhance air flow and ventilation. There is also significantly more soft landscaping than required on the site, including green roofs and public spaces together with a high-emissivity roof which will help to reduce the urban heat island effect. At the foot of Braemar Hill, the Novum East mixed-use development has a dual identity of being quiet and exclusive on one side and highly visible on the other. In response to this duality, an intimate ‘domestic’ frontage has been created for the former and a grand, ‘commercial’ frontage to address the latter. Novum East’s concept revolves around three themes – greenery, verticality and luxury. Slender green planted columns extend up to the clubhouse floor, enriching distant mountain views from every room. By also adopting a palette of limestone and bronze, a softer ambience adds to the building’s sense of luxury and elegance.

H Code - 45 Pottinger Street

H Code – 45 Pottinger Street is a pioneering commercial development in Hong Kong, setting an example for high-rise development location in the most compact city in the world. The development offers a formula for flexible space planning giving the highest level of future commercial opportunities. Vertical commercial exposures were maximised to create high value floor areas and the project has successfully upgraded the neighbourhood to a modern day social hub. 218 Electric Road will create a new business hub with the adjacent AIA Tower and 18 King Wah Road Grade A offices, all by Henderson Land. The typical office layout is carefully planned to allow a high degree of flexibility in partitioning. Its architecture has also been designed to bring in cool bright daylight and natural cross ventilation (through automatic window actuators based on the tenant’s informed decision) to the office interiors, integrating design aesthetics with the principles of green architecture. This project was a winner of Green Building Awards 2016 Hong Kong, for its demonstration of a new direction of sustainable offices in the city.

Ashgabat International Airport


   in Istanbul, Turkey in 1995, Polimeks Construction has successfully completed 134 projects and is now ranked among the top contractors of the world. The company, which is already renowned for its extraordinary architectural buildings and projects, has now added a further four property awards to its impressive portfolio. Three of these awards are related to Ashgabat International Airport in Turkmenistan, which many would go so far as to describe as a work of art. Acknowledged world-wide for both its architecture and design, the high-tech airport also includes many cultural and intellectual elements. Built in accordance with all international standards and requirements of civil aviation, the new state-of-the-art airport complex will be capable of handling 14 million annual passengers by 2036. The project’s goal was to accommodate the increasing demand of air traffic and to prepare the airport for the arrival of athletes

and visitors during the 2017 Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games. As the main airport hub of Turkmenistan, it connects Ashgabat to major cities in Europe, Asia and the Middle East from a total site area of 1,209 hectares. The two-runway airport has been expanded and renovated according to a new master plan. The infrastructure has been improved and extended, existing buildings have been replaced by new, contemporary buildings including a new passenger terminal, VIP terminal, parking garage, air traffic control tower, cargo terminal, offices and operational services and utilities buildings. The striking shape for the main terminal building, that of a graceful Lachin bird in flight, was chosen by the Turkmenistan President. Its design and construction proved challenging but Polimeks overcame this by using custom made curtain walls details and specially designed roofing materials. Additionally, a main steel structure and electromechanical

solutions were developed, enabling the bird shape to take form without making any concessions to design standards or the occupants’ comfort. The interiors of the Passenger Terminal Building contribute to the positive passenger experience and excellent reputation that the airport enjoys. Both the design team and airport management were focused on creating the very best environment for passengers from the very beginning of the project. This included processing requirements, amenities, intuitive wayfinding, acoustics, natural daylighting and many other aspects to create a positive and enjoyable experience. The result is an operation which offers a highly efficient and comfortable travel process, allowing passengers a smooth transition from beginning to end of their flight experience. Polimeks’ fourth current award is for the Olympic Complex in Ashgabat City, Turkmenistan. Forming a unique example

in the Central Asian region, it will become the main complex for the Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games in 2017. Situated at the heart of Ashgabat City, the Olympic Complex is a multipurpose sports venue which will encompass more than 30 facilities, all within walking distance of each other. Sports facilities are located in such a way as to conduct high quality education, training and competitions across a total area of approximately 157 hectares. Main competition arenas are located closer to city lines where pedestrian subways are arranged while other educational and training facilities are mostly in the internal part of the complex. The vast and comfortable environments at the Olympic Complex have been specially created for a whole host of indoor and outdoor sports facilities. This will enable athletes and trainers to achieve their whole year training programs using state-of-the-art training and competition equipment.

Asimont Villas

Centralcon Shangsha


   of the world’s leading architecture and design practices. The company, which creates world-class design solutions tailored to the needs of global cities and communities, has won awards for an impressive total of 11 different projects. Asimont Villas is a choice residential enclave in the exclusive neighbourhood of District 11 within Bukit Timah, Singapore. The intimate community consists of seven clusters of villas containing three similar properties within a lush and tranquil garden. The villas are conceived as a series of ‘frames’ and ‘floating boxes’ with carefully placed apertures to frame scenes of the surrounding tropical garden and allow in filtered daylight. Instead of physical barriers, the boundaries between private spaces and common areas are visually blurred by the use of carefully selected trees and evergreen planting. Overall, the identity of Asimont Villas relies on a close relationship between architecture and landscape design – one that

Gmond International Building

creates a serene and conducive environment for all residents to enjoy. Centralcon Shangsha is a mixed-use project and the first phase of the most important megadevelopment in Shenzhen, China. With this project, Aedas seized the opportunity to develop iconic twin towers, representing the power of two. Suggesting equilibrium, harmony and balance, the visual strength has been enhanced with a doubling of focal points. This architectural coupling creates a strong identity itself without the need for any additional ornamentation. Furthermore, by twisting the two towers at different levels, the best views are shared between each one. Additionally, the separation of the service core and structure creates flexible leasing space for future tenants and also avoids any overlooking between the two towers. Gmond International Building is a mixed-use tower in Shenzhen, China. The project comprises offices, service apartments, retail spaces, a jewellery gallery, club house and restaurants.

Huarong Financial Centre

Its concept is derived from the image of bamboo and the art of Chinese ink paintings, providing an iconic gateway to the district. Located in a high-density neighbourhood, tough urban constraints were imposed to the site by the district government. Aedas met this challenge by exploring new ways to fulfil a sustainable design. The result is a practical and appealing project which is unique in its functions, aesthetic and economic viability. Huarong Financial Centre (HFC) is a mixed-use, twin-tower project in Guiyang, China. Comprising retail, hotel and office components, its design concept refers to Miao village. By expressing the local culture of the traditional villages from the Guizhou region, the development combines continuity with the past with a progressive link to the future. The traditional form of local villages constitutes the typology of HFC’s internal commercial courtyard with a retail podium under the towers. This offers different volumes and a diversity of space providing a unique

SCE Shanghai Hongqiao CBD North 01 & 03 Project

atmosphere for business and retail. Forming a new landmark for Guiyang, the ‘City Twin Lighthouse’ aspires to stimulate the city with its stacking retail village typology. SCE Shanghai Hongqiao CBD North 01 & 03 Project is a Grade A, ‘stand-alone’ office development in China. Its design embodies three main concepts: The Enclosure, The Bamboo and The Cube. The Enclosure is the courtyard which fosters a sense of territory and belonging. The Bamboo is represented by the elegant design of the façade which features architectural fins made of aluminium alloy and gold metal thread. These are then installed against the curtain wall made of grey tinted glass. The Cube concept challenges the banal, plain curtain wall façade of office buildings with a thoughtful composition of projections and grooves. The interlocking of volumes starts to divide the façade itself into various portions, while dark linear strips are utilised at the junctions to strengthen the unique and iconic concept of interlocking.

Zhuhai Holiday Resort New Hotel (Phase 1)

Shishi Gold Coast Project

Zhuhai Holiday Resort New Hotel (Phase 1) is located adjacent to the Pearl River Delta in China. Between Zhuhai CBD and Macau, the site has been coined ‘the garden of the garden city’. This is because it is renowned, not only for its well-established resort, but also for its lush greenery and central lake. The concept for the new buildings thus draws its inspiration from the site as an aged tree that continues to grow, extending its roots and sprouting new branches. The lakes, pathways, buildings and activities of the site divide the charming landscape into a series of layers, creating a naturally textured experience. Shishi Gold Coast Project in China is a resort development divided into three zones and two phases. The first phase is the hotel zone which consists of two blocks of hotel, F&B, retail units and a glass wedding pavilion. The final massing of the buildings offer a rhythmic skyline along the coast while a visual ‘spine’ articulates scenic views with architectural spaces, which blend seamlessly with the landscape.

Nansha Riverside Garden Hotel (Sheraton Hotel)

The two blocks of large scale F&B units are strategically placed at the waterfront to create the desired view of the sea, while the two hotel blocks form a pleasing back drop. A landscaped plaza at the central axis of the resort is ‘framed’ by the two hotel blocks which extend across the strand and convert into a wooden bridge above the sea. Nansha Riverside Garden Hotel (Sheraton Hotel) in Guangzhou, China is a five-star resort hotel on a triangular, 28,200m² site. Bordered on the south by the Jinzhou River and on the west by Haibin Road, its design is a direct response to the site’s context. The river wraps around the site and provides a unique setting for the development. During the design process, Aedas discarded the common practice of facing hotel architecture to the river and enclosing a garden. Instead, a decentralised approach was taken which maximises hotel rooms which face directly to the river, enabling various hotel functional spaces to form around a central garden.

Taipei European School-European Secondary Campus Redevelopment

Lè Architecture

Lè Architecture is a 62.7 metre high office tower in Taipei, Taiwan which aims to redefine the skyline of this rapidly developing district. Its design is inspired by the shape of pebbles in the nearby Jilong River; developing the unique aesthetic that conveys the idea of softness and elegance as well as strength and character. By taking inspiration from stone, the building integrates regional culture and represents it in a contemporary form. The perforated green façade, a representation of moss on stones, brings a welcome breath of air into the office spaces. Interweaved with a series of interlocking ‘Urban Living Rooms’, the building is no longer a monolithic, static, impenetrable object, but a permeable, breathing mass filled with life. TES – Taipei European School-European Secondary Campus Redevelopment – takes full advantage of the site’s hilly position. Its design places large volumes, such as the auditorium and indoor basketball courts, underground to make room for several spacious communal areas, terraces and outdoor activity areas.

The design concept for the project’s internal communal spaces has used the special quality of the characteristic Taiwanese alleyways. Similar to their pockets of areas where people can converse, a series of break out spaces along the main circulation of the new campus promotes interaction and communication. Temple Mall North is located in the heart of Kowloon in Hong Kong. Initially two separate malls, Lung Cheung Plaza and Wong Tai Sin Plaza, the two were to be merged and given a fresh, new identity both inside and out under the name of Temple Mall North. Inspired by the adjoining historical Wong Tai Sin Temple, Temple Mall has been given a vivid oriental design with a contemporary flair, revealing a unique sense of the local community. This style extends into the interiors that feature void rings imitating the lantern shapes crafted on the atrium ceiling linking the main entrance plaza with the shopping arcade. Colours are also derived from the neighbouring temple – red and yellow with grey as the background colour.

ABB Shanghai Office


PWT D  founded by a group of enthusiastic young architects in Hong Kong in 1995 and has progressively grown to include offices in Beijing and Shanghai, China. The company is committed to creating innovative quality living spaces suited to individual client’s needs. Its professional services range from architecture and interior design to planning and product design with a wide range of successful projects in Hong Kong, China and Southeast Asia. Apart from its many commercial projects, DPWT has also undertaken many community services projects such as renovations of churches and retirement homes. The following award-winning office interior design projects were both carried out for ABB, one of the most advanced energy saving technological companies in the world. ABB has extended its footprint in China over the past few decades, necessitating new office

models and designs. These will accommodate expanded headcounts and spatial requirements in two workplaces in Mainland China. The new office model will manifest a new corporate image to ABB for the forthcoming decades. ABB Shanghai Office is located in one of the most prosperous areas of China. Previously, each member of staff was usually assigned a fixed working space but this arrangement no longer proves practical. Hence a free seating system with limited fixed seats for admin, HR and finance staff has been incorporated for nearly all staff. The spatial efficiency under this arrangement can increase by up to 150-200% – meaning only 50-75% of the existing office space is needed for the workstation area. Under this design layout, some surplus spaces are dedicated to various public areas such as breakout spaces, project rooms and telephone booths which all feature a unique design character.

The office working area has been divided into two zones – mobile and fixed – and accommodates around 150 workplaces for 200-250 staff. The high number of workstations meant that almost two floors were required to meet the required capacity. Therefore, one entire floor is dedicated to a reception and customer area with hot desks, while the other is for more internal office use. The mobile workstations are located at the opposite entrance of the lift lobby so that they have an individual entrance avoiding any disturbance for the other office workers. Fixed workstations are at the inner zone of the office, ensuring privacy for the admin and finance staff. Multiplicities of spatial structures including individual, group and open-scheme office and multi-purpose areas are designed to work together through a variety of methods and are arranged in a flexible configuration. The second floor is mainly dedicated to

internal ABB staff, therefore meeting rooms are located at the entrance to form a conference zone. As on the other floor, the breakout and collaborating area will be scattered around the office ensuring various working modes for staff. The colour palette has been chosen to project a vivid ambience across the workspace. Vibrant warm tones such as red, blue, green and lime enhance the spatial quality and create a highenergy feel. Apart from these bright colours, the overall office has a neutral tone of monochrome with a white wall and grey carpet. Besides focusing on the flexibility and cost efficiency, the office design had to strengthen the brand and maintain a high design profile. The corporate brand permeates every aspect of the building including reception, canteen, meeting room and internal office to display the energetic and dynamic atmosphere of the ABB office and highlight its characteristic, lively and modern image.

As the corporate office’s reception is the first area encountered, it has to present a clear picture to the world of what the company represents and the profile associated with the brand. A large image showing ABB’s achievement in the energy business has therefore been elected to form the stunning backdrop for the reception counter. Designed in white and black marble, the desk is a linear console and presents a crisp and clean professional image. The reception ceiling has a special lighting effect concealed inside the lighting membrane of its blue sky pattern. This resembles good weather shining down from above to lift everyone’s spirits as they enter the office. ABB Guangzhou Office is located in a highly prosperous area of the Southern province and required many of the same layout priorities and all the corporate branding devices as the

Shanghai office. The brief with this particular office interior design was to accommodate around 100 workplaces for 150-200 staff. Due to the fact that the premises are in a long rectangular configuration, the challenge for DPWT was to create various interesting areas along the main circulation. These serve as meeting nodes and also alleviate the feeling of a long corridor. There is a greater need for meeting areas with this form of office layout as the staff are sharing workstations. Following a similar impactful reception area as that for the Shanghai office, a history wall along one of the corridors leads to the conference room and internal office area. Featuring a range of photographs depicting ABB’s successful completed projects across the years, it cultivates a mood of progress and professionalism.

The breakout area is located at the central core of the office and forms a place which encourages social interaction between staff. Short, spontaneous meetings between colleagues can also be held here, taking advantage of its relaxed and inviting atmosphere. A bar table and meeting tables provide different seating/working environments and there are also phone booths provided for individual needs. A sound absorption fabric panel with a different colour accent has also been designed into each phone booth to give identity and freshness. This enables staff to hold a private tele-meeting in the phone booth. The facility also helps to preserve the peace and tranquillity of the reading room as a silent area where mobile phones are not permitted. The large meeting room is equipped with a projector screen and white board, while a

vast poster wall has been installed to foster a branding image and reinforce the ambience of professionalism. A shared hot-desk is positioned facing the entrance door, close to the lifts and pantry. This creates a natural working place for visitors and staff who may only visit the office on an occasional basis. Colourful carpet strips on the floor help to bring directional indication to visitors as well as projecting an image of progression and forward thinking to match with ABB’s philosophy. Both ABB Shanghai and ABB Guangzhou offices have met the client’s brief for modern, carefully designed and highly productive workplaces. They clearly demonstrate the brand’s identity and professionalism and will provide functional office solutions for many years to come.

 C C is a 505-unit residential development, jointly developed by UOL Group and SingLand, with over 50 years of experience and an extensive portfolio of development and investment properties, hotels and serviced suites. It is located in the heart of three transformational growth areas in Singapore, namely Jurong Lake District, one-north and the Kent Ridge Education Belt. Nature very much takes centre stage at this forest-inspired development, proving that high-rise, high-density living can also be lush and green. The design optimises the site planning and provides efficient and functional layouts for the units of two, three and fourbedroom configurations. The two 40-storey towers have been designed as elegant, monolithic blocks to complement

the organic forms of the surrounding landscape. Their placement ensures optimum views and orientation as well as minimising overlooking. A multi-storey car park linking the two towers also provides an added floor of amenities including pools and landscaping at roof level. The landscape design concept of The Clement Canopy aims to maximise the opportunity for actual ground tree planting within the residential compound. These trees can then grow into large column-like elements which will, over time, subsume the architecture and blend it into nature. Functional spaces have been carefully curated around the overall planting as if to suggest that the nature existed before the built structures. The organic form of the pool has also been designed to meander around the trees, simulating the natural environment.

Designed by award-winning Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, the exterior and façade

of Park Eleven is intended to be contemporary and modern yet appropriate to the local context. Composed of bold vertical lines, the façade of the residential towers emphasises the stature of the development while the articulation of the windows and balconies gives it a sense of refinement. The townhouses feature a focus on high volume spaces with glazing and screens to give the residents views of the lush surroundings. A sunken residential clubhouse has also been designed within the development’s open parkland setting and provides residents with recreational amenities while complementing the openness of the landscape. The underground parking and vehicular circulation will provide the opportunity for large garden spaces that the local communities, as well as the adjacent kindergarten, can enjoy.

Bay Pavilions


H P  an integrated property, project development and asset and facilities management group. Building on proven technical and commercial experience and expertise, it focuses on four core areas of business, namely property development, construction, project management and facilities management. The group has won an impressive array of awards for the following three projects. Bay Pavilions is a joint venture between TH Properties and Piety Developments. The apartment development is located on a 3.2-acre site approximately nine kilometres from Sydney’s CBD, between Burns Bay and the Lane Cove River. It has been designed by Marchese Partners with interiors inspired by the surrounding native flora and rock formations. Three key elements give shape to Bay Pavilions’ architectural concept and theme. These are craftsmanship, contemporary influence and connectivity. With the interplay of all these elements, the design of the building is made to blend seamlessly with its calm and

serene waterfront setting on the Lower North Shore. By fusing nature, architecture and extensive glazing, the external backdrop appears as if it is an actual part of the property. The resulting development offers a perfect respite from the hectic nature of the CBD while still keeping the city within sight. A village street runs in between the buildings to create more open spaces and make the spatial planning feel less congested. Each pavilion building also features secure entry for residents to the individual designer lobbies. By planning the development’s layout in this way, more free surface area is provided for landscaping and recreational areas, thus encouraging interaction between residents. There is a choice of one, two and threebedroom apartments at Bay Pavilions, each with terraces and balconies. Consisting of five ecosensitive blocks of up to seven-storeys in height, the development has a total of 273 apartments. The largest penthouse units on the top floor have a commanding vantage point where

residents can enjoy the surrounding views of bushland reserves, waterways, natural parklands and meticulously landscaped grounds. Careful attention was given to the positioning of the apartments to ensure that each unit was given a good solar orientation. This helps them remain cooler in summer and warmer in winter whilst also making use of the natural light and views. The award-winning penthouse at Bay Pavilions has an interior floor area of 154m² and comprises three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a study. While the master bedroom has an attached bathroom, the remaining bedrooms share a bathroom. Its interior design places emphasis on aesthetics while also embodying spaciousness and practicality. An expansive terrace allows more flexibility of use and also merges the indoors with the outdoors. The highly luxurious penthouse comes furnished with pure wool carpets, a sleek gourmet gas kitchen with island benches and stone benchtops, mirror splashbacks for the bathrooms, and premium fixtures and fittings.

The TH Hotel & Convention Centre (THHCC) Kuching in Sarawak, Malaysia comprises of a four-star hotel with an office component, convention facilities, including a hall that can accommodate 1090 delegates, and a Hajj complex. The latter is designed for Muslims who are planning on embarking on the Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca. It provides a venue where they can carry out applications and immigration procedures, while the hotel itself complements the Hajj complex by catering to pilgrims’ accommodation during the Hajj period as well as tourists and other patrons on a daily basis. The design of the nine-storey THHCC developed by TH Properties draws inspiration from the lush tropical rainforest of Sarawak. This concept not only celebrates the hotel’s 6.16-acre site but also forms the underlying green technology and efficient living principles adopted by the project. Everything from the scale, design and building function to the landscaping and materials has been specially

chosen to be as environmentally friendly as possible while being conducive to the expectations of a modern lifestyle. THHCC’s architectural design also embodies the cultural heritage of the indigenous community in Sarawak through the adaptation of Pua Kumbu motifs. Pua Kumbu is a traditional, multi-coloured hand-woven fabric made and used in Sarawak. Its rich patterns and vibrant colours are as unique as they are significant to the local community. Therefore, this ethnic heritage is infused into the design of the hotel to create a timeless and synergistic blend of art and architecture. This approach has resulted in a striking, modern and contemporary building façade accented by tropical architectural elements. The final overall design of the integrated development will feature a grand lobby at the ground floor, a roof garden at the top and a shopping arcade and restaurant on either end of the lobby. This frees up the lower ground floor for both public and private parking bays. The interior design for THHCC

uses Islamic concepts as a guideline for the various facility areas in terms of spatial planning and layout. This extends to the common facilities within the development which provide separated male and female facilities in order to fulfil the requirements of the adjoining Hajj complex’s patrons. While all rooms in the hotel are beautifully oriented and presented, the Presidential Suite is its most exclusive VIP accommodation. It includes a living room and dining area, an activity lounge area, a main bedroom with master bathroom and a smaller bedroom with twin beds and an adjoining bathroom. Embracing a lavish sense of style and featuring custom designs and fittings, natural light shrouds all key areas through large windows in each living space. The Islamic Complex Putrajaya is a RM500 million office development by TH Properties in the federal administrative capital of Malaysia. Located beside the Putrajaya lake and adjacent to the new Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin Mosque, the development consists

of four office blocks in three buildings. By housing all 10 Islamic government departments that come under the purview of the Prime Minister’s Department beneath one roof, it will boost service efficiency and facilitate programme implementation. As the first modern Islamic complex of its kind in Malaysia, the development is designed to embody the pureness and beauty of light. The repetitive, intricate design of the eightpointed star motifs in the building forms filter natural light, while also enveloping the complex in a design that is both timeless and cutting-edge. Each of the four office blocks features a rooftop trellis which stretches over the reinforced concrete roof and has membrane waterproofing, which is being used for the first time in Malaysia. Roof gardens are located underneath the trellis with curved, tree-lined pathways and lush greenery around their perimeter. Work space in the complex has been optimised to create an engaging environment for heightened efficiency. The office units

are spacious and light-filled, while open courtyards and pedestrian plazas provide perfect retreats for rest and relaxation. All these elements ensure that the overall environment with its interconnecting landscaped spaces between the buildings is conducive to both work and moments of leisure. Given that the complex consists of four office blocks over three plots, enhancing connectivity between each one and enabling smooth movement across the whole development were priorities. It was equally important to ensure easy accessibility from outside the complex, whether by road or pedestrian walkways. TH Properties has gone beyond conventionality to infuse philosophical and spiritual values into the design of the Islamic Complex Putrajaya. This stunning complex is an art form that combines natural light, glass, shades, screens, water and greenery along with bold metallic and concrete structures. The result is an award-winning and inspiring blend of serenity, strength and dynamism.

T S was established in Hong Kong in 1997 and has since undertaken a diverse scope of projects: ranging from small scale residential, show flat design to large scale commercial works such as corporate headquarters. The company has won an impressive total of 11 awards. La Cresta is a low-density residential project in the new luxury sector of Kau To Shan in Sha Tin, Hong Kong. PTang has designed the award-winning interiors for the sales office and show flat in Kowloon Bay as well as for individual properties. Located in the heart of its mansion area, the development is surrounded by lush greenery where residents can enjoy a high degree of privacy. The concept of La Cresta is inspired by a city in Italy where families usually live with several different generations. With a gross floor area of approximately 134,000 square feet and unit size of 1,500 to 3,300 square feet, the three and four-bedroom properties are ideal for families looking for a spacious home.

PTang has designed their interiors to be represent a clear expression of the life of Kyo-shu which is surrounded by mountain scenery. Rich and opulent interiors feature carefully selected marble and natural materials complemented by a gentle colour palette reflecting nature. Together with high-end furniture, furnishings and appliances, they offer a relaxed and comfortable lifestyle. Copper is a 3,000 square feet whiskey bar and lounge located in the heart of downtown Kunming, China. Its design encompasses a high class, modern and elegant ‘English brasserie’ look and feel. In order to create an enigmatic and stylish scene, the customer is first greeted by a prominent tunnel feature of copper steel strip lights. Inspired by whiskey houses and distillers, it guides guests inside the space. A long, wide white marble table-top bar then welcomes guests with a bespoke copper chandelier above.

VIP stage is flanked by a three-storey high glass window. The bar is dominated by dark grey hues, while colourful cushions add vibrancy and assorted lighting lends a dramatic glow to each area. A leather and velvet sofa creates a distinguished masculine and feminine atmosphere and also helps to divide the lounge and bar areas. Across the entire space, the palette of materials offers hints as to the heritage of the whiskey collection whilst telling the story in a modern way, making Copper a worthy venue for the serious whiskey enthusiast. Mandani Bay is located in the midst of the busy city of Mandaue in Cebu, Philippines. The concept of its sales gallery and show flats has been inspired by the famous Victoria Harbour and Marina Bay in Hong Kong. A full-scale exhibition area of 20,000 square feet features large scale models, a kids’ room, AV room, courtyard, show flats, negotiation rooms and a space for holding future events. The courtyard is surrounded by three show flats and a handover unit and features a water

element to enhance the experience. Sourcing appropriate materials in the Philippines proved a major challenge for PTang and so different solutions were sought to address the problem. The result across the studio, loft and two-bedroom show units was a stunning continuity of design carried through the exterior and interior. 2 Gether is a sales office with two show flats in Tsuen Wan, Hong Kong. Based on the idea of converting a 6,000 square feet office floor into a cyber-inspired space, illusion and cosmetics were key design solutions. In order to create a unique spatial experience for the showroom, the whole space features reflective materials, while feature glass with a linear pattern gives visitors the impression of falling into a cyber world. The most challenging part of the project was to decorate the show flat with the same materials whilst also giving it a homely feeling. By placing the right accessories in appropriate places and using reflective mirrors, a stylish and contemporary home environment was achieved.

The Graces in Providence Bay is a residential development located at the waterfront of Tolo Harbour. Its duplex units of 260m² include a garden and offer views of the coastline from the first floor. PTang has therefore extended the feeling of coastal living into the property by using the curved shape of the waves on a feature wall. Furniture is also designed in an arc shape, as if being aboard a yacht while colourful ornaments and decorative elements resemble marine organisms. Providence Peak Show House 7 at Tai Po is a refurbished 4,000 square feet, fourstorey residence. It has an air of romance and a sense of understated luxury, combined with an eclectic mix of modern classic and cosmopolitan style. The whole living space is crowned by full height windows, making it open and full of air and natural light. Moving

away from the main living area, the ratio of the residence mildly shifts from aristocracy to contemporary modern living, bursting with colours and patterns. Comb+ Show Home – Blue is a 48-metre loft in Beijing which has the principal aim of dividing each area in order to optimise and maximise the space. In order to achieve this challenge, PTang has used a range of colours, forms and graphics to create an aesthetic living space suitable for single people and young couples. The open plan kitchen, living and dining space is integrated with assorted curving elements throughout the loft. A mezzanine bedroom overlooking the living area and garden beyond is enclosed by a glass balustrade to create an unimpeded flow of light and views.

Located in Woolloongabba, the most dynamic inner urban destination in Brisbane, Australia, it offers much more than a place in which to live. The mixed-use precinct provides a unique opportunity to live with the convenience of shops, cafes, green space and transport right outside the door. The precinct’s initial stages comprise three towers with around 400 apartments which have now sold and are under construction. These represent half of the precinct’s residential offering. Ultimately, South City Square will deliver six distinguished residential towers and a boutique hotel as well as a major retail, dining and entertaining precinct including a fullline Woolworth’s supermarket and 500-seat cinema operated by NASDAQ listed, Reading

Cinemas. Inspiration has been sought from the best urban renewal projects around the world, as well as from the history and identity of Woolloongabba itself. Public spaces will comprise some 45% of the precinct, with 25% given to a beautiful central square comprising over an acre of space. Featuring lush lawns, cascading water, sculpture gardens, trees and outdoor café seating, this innovative open space is set to be a new gathering place for all of Brisbane. Undoubtedly, South City Square will deliver a wide range of new shopping and lifestyle options for the broader community. For residents, it will provide an architecturally designed sanctuary with everything they need just below their apartments, as well as invaluable after completion service from the developer’s own management business, SCS Property Management.

 L  a boutique property developer that was incorporated in Singapore in 1982. The company has been successful in winning awards for the following three projects: The Asana is a boutique residential development consisting of 48 bespoke apartments arranged over five storeys. Taking inspiration from the heritage and prestige of the site in Bukit Timah with its aura of serenity and calmness, associations of zen and yoga rose to the fore. The result is a collection of limited edition residences that offer a contemporary yet vernacular home that will remain timeless in its beauty, form and function. 1919 is an inspired collection of 75 black and white apartments recalling the elegance associated with Singapore’s colonial era. The

interior design brief called for a show flat that would effectively showcase the unique design concept of the project. By continuing the exterior monotone colour palette, black overtones unify the space, whilst the white brings light and presence, creating a bold, highly stylised and glamorous interior. Collision 8 is one of the latest co-working spaces to be opened in Singapore. Within its interior design, Aurum has incorporated everything from hot desks for flexible working to dedicated desks and personal offices for privacy into its carefully considered layout. Complemented by elegant furnishings, a variety of conducive workspaces, lounges and event spaces have been created, all with natural light and fabulous views of the Marina Bay Sands, Singapore River and CBD skyline.

Ridout Road, Singapore


 I, helmed by partners Nikki Hunt and Andrea Savage, has earned an international reputation for attention to detail, quality and creativity, winning awards at national, regional and global levels. Believing that design is about far more than aesthetics, Design Intervention crafts bespoke homes tailored to its clients’ every need to elevate their mood and recharge their soul. A bespoke home, both inside and out, Ridout Road features architecture and interior design by Design International. The property in Singapore was inherited by a couple (both professors) and their two teenage daughters and, although the site is beautiful, the building was very dilapidated. Design International demolished the house and created a new family home; contemporary in design and full of light, it maximises the fabulous views.

There were two main challenges: the first was the undulating hillside site while the other was the clients’ requirement for expansive spaces for family gatherings as well as quiet, private spaces for study and solitude. The chosen design captures the strong lines and sturdy forms of the old colonial style but in a more modern and streamlined way. Borrowing architectural elements from many different styles, the property suits the clients’ style preferences and requirements perfectly. Inside, pops of colour enliven the décor and add energy and vitality without overwhelming the rooms. The wife is an amateur artist and so Design Intervention has reflected her love of watercolour and artistic effects in many of the soft furnishing choices. Notably, the living and dining area was a key consideration for the clients. An open concept dictated the need for a seamless flow of materials and design linking the

two spaces. Optimisation of seating and flexible use of space was paramount while lush greenery was to be viewed from every possible angle to suit the husband who is a keen gardener. The Tomlinson Apartment, also in Singapore, was purchased as a second home by an international businessman and his wife. With two children at university abroad, it was important to create an inviting home to encourage their visits. As a result, particular attention was paid to personalising the bedrooms of the son and daughter. The brief was for a smart, sophisticated city vibe. The couple wanted a stylish home with a metropolitan feel but with more personality than the hotel rooms they wished to escape. Design Intervention has injected soul into this brand new apartment and capitalised on its stunning cityscape views by linking the interior schemes to the outside vistas.

Singapore Winevault is a new wine tasting, restaurant and entertainment concept within a rooftop oasis in West Singapore. As its location is far outside the city centre, Design Intervention had to ensure that its interior design would entice guests to make the journey. The client brief was to create the ambience of an American mountain lodge – the challenge was to rework a look associated with snow-covered terrains and blend it seamlessly into lush, tropical Singapore. The architecture of the building resonates with a Zen like simplicity and so the interiors complement this style while invoking a sense of luxury to suit the premium quality of wines on sale. The essence of an American mountain lodge has been combined with the subtle undercurrent of an Asian spa resort, making it relevant to the local environment. The result is a mash-up of two seemingly opposing design themes in a striking yet harmonious manner.

 D L (MDL) is an Italian design studio dedicated to creating cutting edge and outstanding work. The following award-winning projects are excellent examples of the company’s high standards of design. Villa Otto is located in the exclusive and prestigious District 10 of Singapore. Its name is taken from the fact that ‘Otto’ means eight in Italian and the footprint of the building is shaped like the number as the owner has a great interest in Feng Shui. He chose the number as it is auspicious but also because it celebrates the beauty of fundamental geometries, where ellipses and circles merge their mystical meaning with more esoteric theories. Breaking all limits of traditional design and construction technology, Villa Otto is a sculpture and a dream. It appears to portray an alien starship about to land and transport the onlooker to another dimension and place.

The stainless steel, eight-shaped cladding that wraps the second floor of the house where the bedrooms are positioned, is the glory of the project. It is so outstanding that it asserts itself even without the rest of the building. The number eight shape is also brought into many areas of the interior, such as the entrance hall where the central sculpture, ‘Vase Otto’, intensifies its impact by an optical illusion given by the light above. The symbolic figure of eight is also engraved on to stainless steel plates repeated on the feature ceilings in the arrival hall and bedrooms. Stainless steel continues to assert its magnificence throughout the building with sculptures and a bar canopy at the pool that, as an organic tree, shades the half-submerged counter. Additionally, glass skylights positioned at the two central areas of the building bring natural light into the house and also create an atrium of focal points.

The client’s brief was to deliver a unique opportunity to a select group of foreign buyers looking for a tropical villa lifestyle but not permitted by law to own a ‘landed’ property. Hence, MDL’s task was to create a prestigious ‘bungalow’ in an apartment complex. Each of the four units includes doublevolume ceiling height, a private lift, entertainment deck, spacious living room, dining and kitchen rooms and at least five bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. There are also numerous facilities such as a private garden and pool, private car park lots, and private ground access from which to enjoy communal amenities. Architecturally, the developer’s vision was for an iconic building with lush greenery,

differentiating itself from the neighbouring luxury apartments and bungalows. The resulting composition of the architectural volumes was inspired by music with the aim of writing a solid symphony on a musical score that acts as a binder of design components. This musical score is represented by a red aluminium trellis that spans across the entire building. Functioning as a shading device for the rooftop terraces, it is also a key element in the composition of Nassim Quattro’s architecture. In order to enhance the musical effect, solid elements of the façade, mostly made from glass, are placed on the first floor and surrounded by water features such as pools and Jacuzzis. This bestows an effect of ‘floating on a reflective lake’ across the entire apartment block.

Forming an excellent, quadruple awardwinning example, The Riviera, Wongamat Beach is located in Pattaya’s highly desirable upmarket area of Wongamat. The mega-project of 42 and 45 levels respectively, is themed around a ‘French Riviera’ concept and had to include outstanding architectural details to make it an iconic building on completion. It also had to provide residential features and facilities that could rival the successful low-rise developments of recent years, both on the ground and within the buildings themselves. Located on over three acres of land, The Riviera includes a total of 979 units with almost

all units boasting unobstructed sea views. Architectural highlights include two 25 metre long, cantilevered sky pools, both located in the upper floors with sky gyms and gardens, surrounded by an iconic light box feature. An extensive and highly effective marketing campaign included Pattaya’s most talked about showroom. This demonstrated the concept of allowing the buyer to purchase everything seen within it via two different furniture packages – namely ‘Luxury’ and ‘Glamorous’. The £900,000 showroom consisted primarily of a grand lobby area and three condominium units, varying from a studio to one and twobedroom options. Warm colours and natural ‘earthy’ tones became the overall Riviera theme with occasional ‘sparkling’ items to add the concept’s desired polished element.

Makati City is the country’s primary destination for business, entertainment and culture. It will always be a trophy address especially for professionals working at the Central Business District. For some, a more ideal location in the area would be a place that allows them to detach from the hectic workday but still provides easy access to lifestyle opportunities with friends and family. One Antonio provides this option as it is close to the city’s landmarks including Ayala Triangle Gardens, Ayala Center, Makati Medical Center,

Makati Central Post Office, and Makati Sports Club. It is also near schools, offices, churches and even foreign embassies. Since it will be part of an established residential community, One Antonio has been conceptualised and designed as a distinct condo-village development. As Avida’s first residential condominium to feature a one-tower, low-rise and low-density design, it allocates a generous 60% of the 7,059m² land area dedicated to shared open spaces. These include a pavilion, wading pool, kiddie pool, landscaped gardens, a playground and fitness area among other outdoor amenities. It also features a T-shaped layout with spacious, single-loaded corridors throughout the development and a landscaped atrium at the centre of the building. There are just 198 units in two and threebedroom layouts, all with balconies and parking provision on the ground and at basement level. The design maximises natural light and

ventilation across the property and, coupled with the provision of so much open space, One Antonio presents a rare and highly attractive proposition for potential residents and investors. Avida Towers Sola is part of Vertis North, the rising centre of Quezon City, a masterplanned, 29-hectare, mixed-use estate from Avida’s parent company, Ayala Land that is set to become the next central business and lifestyle district in Quezon City. Rising to be a dynamic community in this part of the city with an integrated mix of residences, office, hotel, malls and gardens, Vertis North is easily accessible via major transportation modes and is located near commercial areas and places of work. Residents are envisioned to have an active yet relaxing lifestyle within this rising city centre. Avida Towers Sola is located directly across the Vertis North Gardens, a two-hectare park which will feature a grand lawn for walking, jogging

and other outdoor activities and an activity lawn with sloped, terraced gardens for outdoor concerts and events. Within the development itself, the layout and functionality anticipates the needs of its target market, primarily individuals and families who wish to upgrade their lifestyle. The first tower will have 1,004 residences in a mix of studio, one-bedroom and new right-sized two and three-bedroom units. The latter were designed to provide family members with more of their own personal spaces. The two-bedroom units come with a multi-passenger toilet and bath, allowing simultaneous use of the facilities. Avida Towers Sola will also offer sensible, active lifestyle-oriented amenities such as a 25-metre lap pool, kiddie pool, indoor gym, play area and a clubhouse with function hall for up to 150 guests which will further enhance interaction within the community.

Artful Color


V architecture and design studio was launched in Lisbon, Portugal in 1985. This soon led to the creation and development of the SA&V brand following the two founding partners’ trips abroad. Through the will and determination to create objects that would make a difference, the studio threw itself into the design of product lines and seasonal collections aimed at home and lifestyle in a wide range of materials such as acrylic, pine, stone and wood. Over the years, SA&V has won many prestigious awards for its work including those for the two latest projects featured here. Artful Color is a three-storey family villa in Chengdu, China which has been designed to make a bold statement through a bright color palette, bespoke furniture and chic accessories. The client is a Chinese businessman with a wife and family who is a lover of art, bright colors and fine wine.

A contemporary architecture project led to the continuation of a contemporary look and ambience created throughout the interior design by SA&V. The strong colors of the living room’s large abstract wall art project ‘Andy Warhol Remix’ by Claudia Fale set the mood to spread color all over the place. Marbles, various woods and French brass also feature throughout the villa’s stunning design. One of the many spectacular features of this particular interior architecture project is the repetition of porticos (passageways) throughout the three floors using an amazing mixture of rich materials, complemented by stucco wall finishing. Another is the master suite studio which overflows with art at its very best. Even the armchair, designed by SA&V, has been upholstered with a handpainted rainbow on canvas, proving a work of art in itself.

Orient Express

Orient Express is a four-storey villa in Chengdu designed for a Chinese couple and their adult daughter and son. While it was intended as a family home on a daily basis, it also had to be suitable for hosting and entertaining guests to a highly luxurious standard – that of an exclusive club for professional business people. As a starting point for the project, SA&V took inspiration from the extremely sophisticated architecture and interior design projects featuring an Art Deco style. The richness of materials chosen for the floors, walls and ceilings are outstanding such as various stones, ebony and metal. Take the first floor studio for example which is a masterpiece of mixture with its art deco look and carefully chosen design pieces. Bookcases in ebony reflect art deco ambiences, while a modern twist is given by the details in stainless steel. Gold, silver and copper combined with offwhite, red and black makes this a very rich space.

The master suite also features SA&V’s notorious mixture of fabrics and materials such as lacquered wood, plexiglass and metals. Different pattern combinations are much appreciated by Chinese clients and so zig zags, animal prints and diamond shapes have been incorporated. In China, yellow corresponds with earth and is considered the most beautiful and prestigious of all colors. The Chinese saying ‘Yellow generates Yin and Yang’, implies that yellow is the centre of everything. Associated with brown, yellow means neutrality and good luck, and so is often used to decorate royal palaces, altars and temples. This said, yellow was the obvious choice for the master suite, alongside a range of grey, brown and black tones. The overall result was yet another outstanding interior design project to add to SA&V’s ever-extending, award-winning portfolio.

The company was commissioned to design the award-winning Village at Pasir Panjang, Singapore, situated on the west coast highway, just 20 minutes from the city centre. This eye-catching, unique development was primarily designed for residents who have an appreciation of the ‘black and white’, colonial style houses of the 1950s, together with a desire for beautiful, natural open spaces where they can gather and socialise on a regular basis. After a busy day in the concrete jungle, The Village offers an inviting oasis with its lush natural environment and relaxing atmosphere. Boasting a total of nine residential blocks, five storeys high, they feature

stunning apartments ranging from two to four bedrooms. Inspired by the simplicity yet elegance of the 1950s, one of the unique features is the low-density concept of the development. Property sizes range from 818 square feet for two bedrooms up to 2,077 square feet for a four-bedroom penthouse. A step inside reveals beautiful decorated and calming interiors, together with modern fixtures and amenities that would be expected from a development of this calibre. Design features include excellent natural day lighting and ventilation with wide views out to the shared garden. Panoramic views of the coastline can be seen from the three and four bedroom penthouses. The pièce de résistance of The Village is the inviting gardens, where residents can escape the hustle and bustle of urban living,

whilst developing a relationship with nature. A meander among the trees admiring the specially crafted sculptures offers time to unwind and enjoy the natural surroundings. The enticing 50 metre pool is tucked to the side of the property, where an attractive water feature flows gently beside it. This allows the creation of the central space in to a gorgeous landscaped garden, where the abundant greenery offers privacy to the facing units. Residents can look forward to relaxing comfortably with a good book on the unusual three-dimensional tilted lawn under the natural shade of the coconut trees. A sense of escape can be enjoyed in the secret garden, which is lit with water candles creating a feeling of serene peace within its inner sanctum. The Village facilities also include a gym, club house and a 350 metre walking/

jogging/cycling area. Resident children can look forward to frolicking in their own pool as well as enjoying a dedicated play area, packed with play equipment, adapted and inspired by a 1950s theme. The Village development creates an environment where the true spirit of community is embodied within its walls, families are bonded and friendships fostered. The objective of creating a very rare philosophy, in today’s technology based world of keeping life simple has truly been achieved through the black and white elegance of the 1950s. Often the simplest things can be the hardest to obtain but this timeless development is perfect for the buyer who is looking for a classic, vintage product, which is rich in detail and will stand the tides of time.

 D S is a holistic interior design company based in Makati City, Philippines. This team of highly proficient designers, led by their principal interior designer IDr Jigs Ranada Adefuin, are dedicated to seeking design solutions that best fits the clients’ style and taste. By using cutting edge technology, Adefuin is able to transform the most exciting interior concepts into reality. The award-winning project 32 Manila One Roxas Triangle (ORT) is a perfect example. Taking tactile modern as its overall design style, the project was a renovation of a 320m² condominium apartment. The clients, an affluent middle-aged couple, consulted with Adefuin and mutually agreed to emphasise symmetry and streamline within the interior design. Unlike many modern designs which can be cold and impersonal, tactile modern’s sleek lines

and geometry are augmented by plush comfort. The design’s sharp edges are soothed by the restraint and pleasure of elemental materials and textures. The colour palette is an achromatic blend of soft greys, white, black and various shades of neutral. This homogenous colour scheme allows for subtle pops in the artwork and décor. Coloured glass, walnut wood veneer, silver travertines and stainless steel detailing allows for a play on textures and firmly places the project in the realm of the modern. Wishing to highlight the clients’ consummate love for Philippine art and hosting, Adefuin created an open layout design that both combined and set apart the living and dining areas. The clients’ artworks are then meticulously curated around the space, while the baby grand piano rests beautifully between the living and dining areas. As the clients

specified their love of entertaining guests, these two spaces were melded to maximise the potential for spacious gatherings. Adefuin fulfilled the clients’ specifications in this respect while also achieving a delicate balance and symmetry in the spatial arrangement. The living area is a medley of black and white with a black crystal top beechwood coffee table ringed by black velvet Giorgetti armchairs and slate grey leather and linen sofas. Paintings by Filipino Masters grace the walls of one side, framed in gunmetal grey and symmetrical, black-coloured glass is highlighted with dimmable, modern wall sconces finished in chrome. The open dining area is adorned with a dark maple 12-seater dining table, also by Giorgetti. Ringed by solid oak chairs, the table is crowned by a fine wave of Venini Murano glass crystals.

Adefuin had a vision for the master bedroom, which can only be described as a personal five-star hotel room. The clients were very well-travelled and highly knowledgeable about multi-star hotels and their design predilections reflected this affinity. In order to achieve this specific ambience, Adefuin made use of top quality, high-end furniture pieces such as the king-sized tufted leather bed. This rests on a recessed wall flanked by accent walls in walnut wood veneer in a dark wengue finish with stainless steel accent. Through the close collaboration between Adefuin and the clients, the interior design of ORT has been tailor-made to suit their lifestyle. By including the clients on every step of the design process, a mutual masterpiece has been created.

 P  an awardwinning, family-based property investment and development group headquartered in Brisbane, Australia. It has a 30-year track record in delivering exceptional projects and is one of Australia’s most established property groups with a diversified development portfolio across residential, commercial, retail and industrial sectors. Taking pride in being ahead of the cycle with its developments, Citimark identified the Gold Coast as a city primed for exponential growth in 2012. This led the company to make a series of off-market property purchases in prime locations. Markwell Residences in Surfers Paradise is the first of these developments. Ideally located, it is just 180 metres from the beach, adjacent to the city’s new light rail track and an eight-minute walk to the world-renowned Cavill Mall. Markwell Residences represents the next generation of Gold Coast living. Launched in October, 2015 it was marketed in both Australia and internationally. The marketing

brief was to position this exciting new project as the first affordable luxury property of its kind in Surfers Paradise for seven years. The award-winning marketing strategy for Markwell Residences adopted a three-prong approach. Education was key in reinstating the value of the region as was building on Citimark’s reputation and three-decade history. The project value was then highlighted with a distinctly digital focus as part of the Markwell brand launch. The branding process was integrated into all aspects of the project – architecture, interior design and selling strategy. Visually, it reflected the dynamic winged and curved architectural planes of the building while acting as an immediate identifier. This branding also influenced the interior design process, common areas and the sales strategy. The education campaign began three months prior to the launch and selling phase of Markwell Residences. Citimark developed a stand-alone Gold Coast education website as a key marketing tool for its national and

international agents. The site was established as an ongoing ‘live’ resource for agents, consultants and media. It was updated weekly with all key infrastructure, tourism, employment and relevant Gold Coast market information and media announcements. Education seminars were held in key demographic areas for Citimark’s target markets – the Gold Coast, Brisbane, suburbs within Sydney and Melbourne and in China. They were split into two phases – education of agents and consultants, then selling. Citimark agents were equipped with specifically designed comprehensive selling tools including a dedicated sales agent kit with USBs. These incorporated all relevant collateral and digital tools, with the education website as a continually updated resource. With the campaign’s strategic educational foundations in place and weekly sales communication relayed via articles in key publications, the project launched with a teaser A1 flyer. This impressive foldout brochure introduced the project, its magnificent

location and highlighted Citimark’s key Gold Coast investment summary. A unique digital campaign was also developed utilising WeChat soundbite, the Citimark Reputation Video and a retargeting campaign. A stringent retargeting Google Adwords Campaign was also put in place. This was highly beneficial in tracking and reinforcing the message to its target audience. Markwell Residences’ bespoke onsite sales office served as both an education hub and display. Integrating top-of-the-line technology, it ran constant presentations on the project, Citimark Properties and key growth on the Gold Coast. A state-of-the-art interactive model of the development also offered next level engagement with the building, view lines and detailed close ups of the apartments. Markwell Residences was officially launched in October, 2015 and celebrated onsite by local and interstate agents at a formal cocktail party. Once the six-month sales objective for 100 sales was reached, Citimark threw an additional party to celebrate and reward agents and consultants involved in making the project a success.

 C  Beijing Earth Spring Investment’s award-winning residential development located at the north of Beijing in Xiaotangshan Royal Hot Springs area. Ever since Qing Dynasty’s Qianlong period, Xiaotangshan has always been the spa location for the royal family. Just as Bath is famous for its springs in the United Kingdom, Xiaotangshan boasts the relics of the bathing site of Cixi, the late Qing Dynasty’s female ruler. Located along Beijing’s central axis where Chinese emperors have chosen to live for the last 800 years, Chinese Courtyard is only 20 kilometres away from Beijing International Airport. Surrounded by eight rivers, seven major golf courses and a vast city forest, the project is in one of Beijing’s most affluent and highly desirable areas.

The ultimate aim is to provide top class residences for China’s super rich who have a taste for traditional culture. Following Ming and Qing Dynasty’s Wang and Qiao Family Courtyard’s blueprint, Chinese Courtyard also draws on the extensive use of traditional craftsmanship from the Forbidden City to the Old Summer Palace. The revival of intangible cultural heritage – Chinese traditional eight building techniques, combined with modern technology – results in a total of 19 villas with a floor plan from 11,840 – 23,680 square feet of pure Chinese-style courtyard. A residential development of such a large scale, yet with extreme elements of delicacy is unique in modern day China. Chinese Courtyard is even more precious as it offers a contemporary way of life combined with traditional Chinese architecture.

After searching the whole of China, a team of traditional craftsmen were finally found who are expert in carving brick, wood and stone. These craftsmen have an average age of between 50 to 60 and with some even aged 70, these skills are on the verge of extinction. Chinese Courtyard combines a traditional Chinese civil engineering structure with a modern steel and concrete structure. The façade features China’s grey brick, tile and three carvings technique, while the interior is a modern structure to meet fire and earthquake resistance standards. In order to combine these different Chinese and Western building styles seamlessly, the design team has had to modify the whole construction plan many times to perfect it. Chinese Courtyard is one of the few project in Beijing with an ultra-low floor area ration at 0.73. This is due to the fact that, since 2011,

the Chinese government stopped land approval for villa projects with a volume rate below 1.0. Each villa is adorned by a stunning MingDynasty entrance wall, Qing Dynasty horse hitching post and other rare antique objects. On arrival at the development, residents and visitors are greeted by a grand entrance archway which is a direct copy of China’s earliest royal garden Jinci in Shanxi. Other highlights include a 118,400 square feet sunken garden, modelled from the manor of Qing Dynasty China’s largest tea merchant Family Chang. A 23 metre cascading waterfall and a hanging gatehouse, second only in scale and status to Qing Dynasty Emperor Qianlong’s Prime Minister Heshen’s Gong Wang mansion, are just two further examples of the many fine details that contribute to Chinese Courtyard’s overall magnificence.

The company believes that everyone deserves their own living space, so it strives to provide housing that suits the income levels of all communities. The company was commissioned to build the award-winning residential development Telaris located in Alam Impian, Malaysia. This luxurious development enjoys the best of both worlds, nestled within nature, surrounded by lush fields and trees but also a stone’s throw away from all local amenities and schools. Telaris is an enclave of 132, elegant three storey semidetached homes over 13.5 acres. Designed principally as a ‘passive’ house to save energy, the residences are also low maintenance within a psychologically stimulating environment, conducive for creative, productive and

comfortable living. Ensconced in the heart of this development is a community oriented spirit combined with the belief that social interaction is hugely important for a healthy lifestyle. With this in mind, the exterior design of the properties and streetscape lend themselves to encouraging residents to venture out and explore beyond their home boundaries to the inviting green parks and meandering pathways. A life of luxury awaits at the entrance, where residents are greeted with a stunning view of vines weaving naturally through grid trellises creating a sensation of light and elegance.

High ceilings together with warm tawny and walnut coloured floors add a dash of grandeur and class. Sliding glass doors reveal a well-appointed terrace with an inviting Jacuzzi shaded by trees, a perfect setting to enjoy a dip and the sunshine. Telaris embraces the environment though sustainable and green living initiatives. The use of natural sunlight is harnessed throughout each home by increasing the exposure of each area to sunlight. Rain water is utilised through harvesting technology thus mitigating the demand of water for outdoor use. Climate is controlled though the use of cross ventilation, which naturally cools spaces. Each property enjoys intricate design features, providing home owners with a well-

appointed, comfortable and spacious home in gorgeous surroundings. Telaris is perfectly located for its residents to enjoy a wealth of outdoor activities, allowing social interaction combined with a healthy lifestyle. Plenty of natural parkland surrounds the development for exploration, whilst The Permai Golf club, located in neighbouring Kota Kemuning, offers a glorious 18-hole course. The Skytrek and botanical gardens are perfect for extreme sport lovers with exercise tracks and obstacle courses. Three theme parks are just a short drive away, which offers a fun day out for the children. The vision to combine a desire for a luxurious, safe and elegantly designed development, which sits comfortably and lives in harmony with its natural environment, has been fully accomplished through the Telaris development.

It is committed to creating vibrant and sustainable master-planned communities with a vision for the future. The group commissioned Squillace Architects to design its $388 million dollar luxury development Trinity Point Resort & Marina project located on the shores of Lake Macquarie, New South Wales. Squillace’s approach focuses on the holistic practice of architecture, incorporating a dynamic design aesthetic with a fundamental understanding of commercial realities. The resulting architectural designs won awards in both hotel and leisure categories. The client’s vision was to create a Five Star mixed-use development which would prove a successful, viable and vibrant place as well as a world-class destination. Its aim was to form part of an experience and interaction with the area’s greatest quality, the lake itself. The brief

highlighted the need to establish a sense of ‘place’ as a critical outcome of the design. Trinity Point is a unique site just 88 minutes north of Sydney on one of Australia’s largest salt-water lakes. The site presents one of very few edges of Lake Macquarie that are zoned for the purpose of tourism and also have the capacity for a marina to be constructed without significant environmental impacts. Trinity Point plays host to many an event and is fortunate to be positioned a mere 8 minutes by helicopter or 40 minutes by car to over 150 wineries at Hunter Valley together with hatted restaurants and gourmet food. The Watagan Mountains are on its doorstep offering beautiful waterfalls, walking trails, picnic spots and fabulous scenery. Trinity Point is surrounded by 30km of pristine beaches and there are more than 12 golf courses within an hour’s travel.

Additional facilities are a tourist reception, 240-seat signature restaurant with an extra 115 seats outdoors (daybed cabanas), a 300-seat function centre, café seating 60-80, an extensive resort-style pool, a proposed helipad, restored natural seabaths and a public foreshore boardwalk surrounding the entire development. The development consists of 196 residential land blocks, 250 luxury apartments and terraced housing. Medium density accommodation concentrated in four-storey buildings in a landscaped setting became the client’s approved design. This allowed the architects to carve out large corridors of the site for landscaping and public amenity use. With this comes the two-fold benefit of

increasing density of the accommodation whilst also increasing the amenities. Buildings are sited with an eye to existing visual corridors and generally follow a radial pattern to preserve vistas to the lake. As a result, the site engenders a more welcoming public presence and establishes primary pedestrian connections to the foreshore. Undulating landscaped terraces aid the subtle and incremental delineation between private and communal zones and soften the transition to the buildings. Consequently, the architectural design of Trinity Point Resort & Marina perfectly meets the brief to provide a world-class resort environment. It offers generous landscaped open space alongside maximum on-site tourist facilities while still maintaining the visual and physical connection to the foreshore. This awardwinning combination of all-important elements has created a vibrant tourist destination that will attract visitors from far and wide.

Lakeview City


 G  one of Vietnam’s most prestigious companies in the fields of property development and investment. Reflecting this reputation, the group has won an impressive total of eight awards across two different developments. Lakeview City in Ho Chi Minh City marks a significant milestone for Novaland as it represents the group’s first township project. As the development occupies a large site area of 30.1 hectares with an adjacent river, it required a smart and logic strategy in terms of land site usage and allocation for different living purposes. Therefore, to incorporate all living conveniences into just one destination, Lake View City’s design brief also focuses on creating a multi-functional township with a wide range of amenities and facilities for residents. Low-rise housing at Lake View City includes townhouses, shop houses and semi-

detached villas spread across 116,350m² of land. As with all Novaland’s developments, sustainability and environment-friendliness are placed as top priority. Hence, green architecture and design plays a very important role in Lakeview City’s overall concept with 60% of the site area used for public and green areas. Key features include a landscape lake located at the heart of the planning area and a high density of trees and internal parks along its streets, rivers and canals. The Sun Avenue is a mixed-use development featuring a complex of 1,400 luxurious apartments, offices and an attractive high-end shopping avenue within eight towers. Devised to be a new landmark for Ho Chi Minh City, it boasts an outstanding design providing green ventilation and views through each corner of every tower. Residents will enjoy the benefits of a healthy and secure lifestyle

through the provision of an infinity swimming pool, gym, community area, kindergarten, park and 24-hour security and services. Utilising the large site area, the planners have delegated the ground floor of all the buildings to commercial units with offices placed from the second to fourth levels. Residential units and their various amenities then range from the fifth floor upwards. Significant retailers and eateries are situated around the exterior and on terraces of the architecture to encourage more outside interactions and activities. The addition of external glass roofs positioned between the buildings provide the public with shelter from the elements and a sense of enhanced safety. The architect behind The Sun Avenue conveys the idea of time and space in Ho Ch Minh’s evolving modern society. The concept utilises a contemporary approach as

well as incorporating symbolic designs that reference the essence of Vietnam’s culture and natural beauty. This optimises the development’s sense of space, energises the community and its surrounding environments and also serves as a cornerstone for the upcoming major transformation of District 2 into an ancillary epicentre to the biggest financial city of the nation. The project draws inspiration from both Western and Vietnamese influences. As an example, it expresses ideas from European architecture, such as creating complex labyrinths and walkways leading users to discover different amenities. Portraying distinctive features from its own country, the towers’ façades are designed to display natural flows from nature such as the billowing waves of a rice field and the meandering roots of the ancient Banyan trees.

NU Sentral Shopping Centre


  , Pelaburan Hartanah Berhad (PHB) is a real estate investment holding company based in Malaysia. Its core business is to strategically acquire and develop properties at prime locations across the country as well as leasing prestigious office spaces to corporate clients. PHB has won a trio of awards relating to the two following commercial projects. NU Sentral Shopping Centre is Kuala Lumpur’s newest shopping centre and one of the largest of its kind within the CBD. Standing nine storeys high on a 5.6 acre site, the mall has a diverse collection of stores and services to meet the needs of Kuala Lumpur’s ever growing population. It is also Malaysia’s first ever integrated lifestyle and transit mall hub developed to optimise the changing lifestyles of Malaysian and international travellers. Hence, Nu Sentral’s aim is to combine the elements of connectivity,

convenience and convergence for the benefit of both consumers and retailers. As the shopping centre is built to connect to the monorail and KL Sentral Station, a total of RM25 million was put towards a symbiotic co-habitation. This included the construction of a bridge between the adjacent monorail station and NU Sentral Shopping Centre and the provision of easy access points to all the different transport hubs from the mall’s entire floor space. The trapezium shaped land upon which it sits, determined the shopping centre’s design. The popular ‘dumb bell’ concept places anchor tenants at both ends of the floor space with smaller tenants in the centre. This creates an attraction at each end and helps to generate increased customer flow throughout. The mall also gives visitors access to an open-air sky lounge that can be used for private events accommodating up to 650 guests. Within this space there is a skycube

that is designed as an architectural structure positioned on the top of the building to penetrate through the ceiling, providing a link between the interior and the exterior. Integrated to NU Sentral Shopping Centre, Menara 1 Sentrum is a new 27-storey tower providing 450,000 square feet of Grade A corporate office accommodation. The dedicated and exclusive double-height atrium entrance on the lower ground floor provides direct access to the impressive sky lobby. This serves as the main office foyer and a secure link to the prestigious corporate offices. The modern and efficient floor plates have been designed around a central core to achieve maximum efficiency and access to natural light with minimum energy usage. Menara 1 Sentrum’s design complies with both national and international green buildings’ standards and provides technology of the highest quality externally and internally. Shaped in part by the neighbouring KL

Sentral CBD, the building blends seamlessly with KL Sentral Station and NU Sentral Shopping Centre. As there was also a desire to introduce traditional Malay Art styles into the architecture, the external design embraces the weave of a Songket (hand woven fabric from Malaysia), fused with contemporary architectural elements. Featuring this cuttingedge design on the outside, the inside was kept elegant and yet highly functional. There are two main types of units with one being adopted for the low floors and the other for the high floors, while the penthouse unit on the top floor has an impressive four metre ceiling height. The common areas and utility spaces within each unit are positioned to provide a break between open spaces in order to create more functionality and usability. Largely similar across all floors, the unit layouts offer maximum flexibility for respective companies to adapt the space as they wish.

  , Kuala Lumpur based Premier De Muara (subsidiary of PRG) created a majestic masterpiece for the Malaysian property market – Picasso Residence. Inspired by Pablo Picasso, one of the most influential artists of the 20th century it is located at Jalan Jelatek in the vibrant and cosmopolitan city of Kuala Lumpur. Just a few minutes’ walk from the commercial and social hub of the city, this stunning property offers spectacular views of the Petronas Twin Towers and KL Tower. The primary goals for this project were to create a highly architectural appealing residence with the benefits of energy efficiency and low operational costs. Inspiration was taken from Pablo Picasso’s Analytic Cubism style that he developed between 1908 and 1912, using monochrome neutral colours.

This is reflected in the beautiful external structure as a unique 3D vision of his masterpiece artworks. The diamond shaped features that adorn the external building are unique to residential developments in the area and truly give Picasso Residence a very elegant and contemporary look. Two condominium towers rising magnificently greet you with their exquisitely artistic façade and views of the city skyline. Both towers consist of 38 levels with one level below ground. Tower A comprises eight units per level and tower B has six. Opulence and exuberance ooze from this residence as you enter the grand lobby area with its welcoming use of warm, rich wood and clean lines. A step inside each apartment reveals luxurious living within calm and neutral surroundings using modern and contemporary designs and

Natural daylight floods each room through large floor to ceiling windows, bathing each living area in a warm glow, whilst offering residents jaw dropping views of Mont Kiara and The KLCC park. Picasso Residence boasts over 25 excellent facilities and amenities for residents all located at both podium and sky levels. Situated within the lush green landscaped podium level, residents can enjoy a welcome dip in the gorgeous 50 metre Olympic length pool after a workout in the state-of-the-art gymnasium, which overlooks the pool. The area is further complemented with among other amenities

a Jacuzzi, sauna, a jogging/walking track, children’s playground and barbecue terrace to enjoy alfresco dining. The sky level offers residents the perfect setting for evening entertaining within the opulent sky lounge. A perfect place to enjoy a cocktail, whilst taking in the rolling vistas of the highlands beyond, which border the states of Selangor and Pahang. A tranquil, landscaped garden with quiet seating areas, including a hammock garden, offers the perfect place to relax and connect with nature. Combining a true masterpiece of contemporary architecture together with the vision of luxury living within a sought-after area has certainly made The Picasso residences the most coveted high-rise address within Kuala Lumpur.

Inarc conquered its main challenge of ensuring that the ‘front of house’ primary circulation areas were separated from the ‘back of house’ servicing and operational areas of the staff. The Six Furlong, Happy Valley Clubhouse interior design project involved the creation of a unique all-day dining experience for members and their guests that would maximise natural daylight in the venue. Inarc also

The Owners Pavilion, Shatin Racecourse required an interior design that would prove welcoming to horse owners and their guests within a retail environment. Betting counters have been given a sense of privacy while the betting lounge exudes an air of exclusivity yet is wholly relaxing and comfortable. With ‘An Urban Sanctuary’, located at Mid-Levels, Hong Kong Island, Inarc created a unique residential interior environment in an existing old apartment building. The careful selection of materials, quality of detailing and selection of timeless yet classic modern furniture significantly contributed to the overall enjoyment of the owners.

Its double award winning residential development J Gateway is strategically located at the hub of Jurong Gateway. It comprises two blocks of high-rise apartments with superb facilities befitting an exclusive development. Residents are also able to enjoy the many shopping malls which are adjacent to the development. The design brief was to formulate a holistic development that incorporates a variety of residence types and sizes. While it was to represent luxury and prestige, it also had to exude the comfort of a modern, sophisticated home. Apartments have been designed in a regular shape with high ceilings and loft platforms to enhance their flexibility. They are complemented by contemporary communal

areas where residents are greeted with a socially engaging environment. J Gateway features a series of sky terraces that connect the towers. Catering to the desires of different residents and lifestyles, the landscaped sky-terraces are equipped with a variety of activities traditionally restricted to the ground. Here, the terraces allow tropical nature to invade and enliven the spaces at multiple levels located high in the sky. Externally, the architectural design orchestrates light and shade to give the towers a vibrant intensity. Rhythmic play at multiple scales brings a never-ending animation to the towers. A series of random cantilevered open boxes, in the form of balconies, varied in size and length, provide relief to the otherwise static facade and provide elevated patios to enjoy the surrounding scenery.

 TTDI  incorporated in 1973 as the property arm of Naza Corporation Group and has now completed various types of residential and commercial projects, strategically located in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor. Part of the company’s name is derived from Taman Tun Dr Ismail (TTDI), the award-winning successful major township in Kuala Lumpur CBD that was developed by the company in 1974. The company’s latest award-winning high-rise architectural project, TTDI Segaris, is within this highly sought-after address of Taman Tun Dr Ismail. As TTDI is well known for its greenery as well as its community, the 27-storey, low density, duplex residential tower had to ensure the continuity of the neighbourhood. With this in mind, an urban resort theme was incorporated

throughout both its architectural and landscape design. Therefore, TTDI Segaris seamlessly combines the traditional residential typology of TTDI and the latest architectural language of high-rise residences. Enhanced with the use of concrete, metal and glass; a streamlined, modern building has been created which melds perfectly with the urban setting. Its angled roof pitch adds to the aesthetics while providing fabulous 360-degree views of the city skyline, Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club and Bukit Kiara Forest Reserve. It offers residents the experience of three levels of entertainment leisure deck. Furthermore, the building’s vertical shifts and undulating design gives the façade a distinctive form as well as function, providing a welcoming shade from the sun’s rays for the 185 exclusive duplex residences within.

This gives momentum to the whole design which in turn reflects and enhances the energy of the sport being played within the arena. A celebratory and cheerful splash of colour also adds an element of excitement to the environment. By the creative application of mirrors and lighting, Chi Design has successfully achieved an illusionary effect of added spaciousness. This creates a feeling of unlimited height and an infinity of depth to resolve space and height constraints, visually enlarging the entire bowling alley.

  , MIL Design and Construction is a Malaysia based, full service interior architecture consultancy and design and build company. Its award-winning project is a refurbishment of a 30-year-old apartment in an upscale urban area of Kuala Lumpur. It was designed for a client who is a TV host for fashion and lifestyle programmes and an avid fan of travelling. The main challenge was to create a new home and living space within a very old structural shell, marrying in new functions and space planning with the existing. MIL Design chose to approach the whole project differently, rather than complying with the existing space.

The client’s brief called for a home which is ‘chic and stylish with soul and character – not another conventional home’. It also had to include areas in which to relax and entertain friends as well as ample space to display funky art purchased during his travels. Spatially there were a lot of restrictions to address: the narrow entryway, low ceiling height, noise from the elevated MRT train nearby, lack of sunlight, large beams, the overall cluttered and narrow space of the living area, the redundant large balcony, and a dark enclosed kitchen. During the design process of addressing these restrictions, the living, kitchen and dining areas were redefined to enable them to integrate with each other, resulting in better interaction.

 D  presented an award-winning project in Jubei City, Taiwan. Vertical Villa is a residential unit merging three floors of a high-end apartment building in a bustling downtown area. The owner’s brief was for Vattier to create the feeling of a modern villa. Thus, the greatest challenge with the design was how to connect the three floors effectively without damaging the beams and columns of the building. A consistent ambience also had to be maintained in the spatial design of the three floors and an open and permeating feeling of a villa had to flow vertically and horizontally. After careful consideration, a 10-metre space was created for the stairwell with an ultra-modern black steel staircase to

effectively and interestingly connect the entire space. The designer also established horizontal connections using space function configurations and a transparent glass opening to maximise the open feeling of the common areas in the living space. An eight-metre tall white stone wall was placed in the stairwell to contrast with the transparent glass opening and black staircase, thereby giving the modern structure and lines a greater presence. Sculptural pendant lights, hung at staggered heights from the stairwell ceiling also gives residents views at different angles and levels during the day or night. Looking up or down, they will discover interesting spatial views on different floors and even forget they are in an apartment building.

   of ‘Diversity in Unity or Unity in Diversity’, Finko International Design Alliance has made use of over a decade of experience in their design of the Panorama Hotel in Nha Trang, Vietnam. This flagship 39-storey tower is situated on one of the world’s finest beaches, forming an interface between the city, the land and the sea. Supporting Vietnam’s burgeoning tourist industry, the aim was to provide around 1,000 rooms in five-star splendour. Conceived as a living statue with a pure white façade and clean glass reflections, the softly curving lines of the building combine efficiency, strength and integration with the skyline. With a location on the same axis as a French-colonial-

style City theatre, the Panorama Hotel had to balance modernity with history – a feat achieved through its use of vertical energy and horizontal gentleness. Internally, the design of the hotel rooms takes advantage of the project’s beach location, opening up to bring the outside inside. Natural materials and an abundance of space enhance this, creating a relaxing and airy welcome for guests. Additional facilities include retail units and a mall, together with a restaurant. A stunning rooftop pool arcs around the peak of the building, serviced by a tempting sky bar. Two levels of basement parking provide hidden convenience without disturbing the lines of this new symbol of modern Vietnam.

Situated in southern China, close to the spectacular Shenzhen Bay, the first is a stunning apartment with fabulous views. The property is within a building that converges nature, architecture and urban landscape to integrate seamlessly with the mountains, sea, culture and arts. Based on a white tone, the interior backdrop evokes an almost sacred atmosphere, while the design and furnishings complement it beautifully. Lighting in the form of sculptural art plays a visual role in the living room, extending a broad hierarchical relationship. The kitchen, with its geometric sequences on

the floor, exaggeratedly echoes the surrounding stone textures. Overall, the charismatic interiors reflect three closely linked themes: life, environment and architecture. Fubon 777 is a magnificent, neo-classical show home project in Taipei, Taiwan. According to the client’s brief, the designer transformed four rooms into three and restyled the interiors to resemble a celebrity’s Parisian mansion. The spatial pattern, from the tableware to the exquisite hanging lamp and marble table tops, has been meticulously styled to create an opulent and artistic atmosphere. As the hostess has a preference for purple and gold, these regal colours have become keynote tones while a variety of artwork and unique designer sofas and armchairs also reflect the owner’s elegant taste.

JWCC was commissioned to design the award-winning project The Studio, within the busy inner harbour commercial district of the UNESCO Heritage city of Macau. The design captures the desire to preserve and reinterpret the area’s local culture and unique identity. This six-storey apartment building with 30 studio units has been architecturally designed and furnished by JWCC; introducing contemporary living with a taste of Macau’s old town. The building’s layout consists of three voids and a six-storey atrium space situated along the corridor, intersecting between floors for cross ventilation and users’ interaction. The design aims to promote communication between

the residents instead of traditional apartments where this often only occurs within each floor. The roof top garden and terrace offer additional spaces for interaction and act as a breathing space from the hustle and bustle below. ‘Bird cage’ window extensions are a common facade feature of the existing area: they are an addition to the building façade by individual owners for additional space and security. The Studio reinterpreted the bird cage as one of the façade concept elements which allow the building to blend seamlessly within the context. Additional height and larger window openings were designed for the three commercial spaces on the ground floor to give differentiation. The Studio clearly portrays how a contemporary design can successfully integrate with older buildings in the neighbourhood, yet still provide contemporary comforts for its residents.

  , Chapman Taylor is a multi-award winning international practice of architects, master-planners and interior designers. The two projects featured here are prime examples of the company’s expertise. Athena is conceptualised as a one-of-akind shopping experience and a commercial space to meet the emerging need of a leading financial and industrial hub. The plaza area is a key feature of the development and creates a sense of cohesion between the commercial tower and retail complex. Water features and extensive landscaping will help to form a pleasant gathering place. The commercial office space is a single tower of 20-25 storeys high. Its interesting steel and

glass structure features sharp edges while floor plates are designed for maximum flexibility. A cocktail bar and health club will be positioned at the crown with extensive views. Architecturally sleek, the retail area relates well to the architecture of the commercial office space. East Kidwai Nagar involves the redevelopment of a 35-hectare site to be undertaken by the Government of India based on the ‘self-sustainable model’. Its components include commercial, residential, banquet/retail and an educational institute. As the project had to ensure a maximum return for office space, zoning was a major design priority. The offices will be occupied by various Government departments over the next 30 years and so flexibility of the workspace was vital.

The project is a joint venture between two developers – Cambodian firm Urbanland Asia and Malaysian-British firm August Development Co. Together they take a fresh development approach to workspace that is community-focused and designconscious to encourage the exchange of ideas and experiences. Challenging the traditional office block, Raintree is a low-density development that considers the existing townhouses and buildings directly adjacent to the site. Its layout comprises a rational floorplan with a range of unit sizes, from 50m² to a continuous full floor of 1,000m². The aesthetic brief was to

create a simple exterior with clean lines and an understated elegance. Landscaping is also a key design element to give the building character and introduce lush greenery amidst the stern high-rises. Raintree serves a diverse community of entrepreneurs, creatives and professionals alike with significant space dedicated to communal facilities. These include an indoor event space, an outdoor terrace, comfortable corners for informal meetings, private balconies and curated small format retail units on the ground floor for the convenience of tenants and surrounding office workers. Raintree has consequently become a professional environment that is simultaneously friendly and creative, with workspace that fosters productivity and innovation.

Inspiration on composition, materials and combination then naturally flowed, which were followed through by factory visits and discussions with experienced craftsmen, to ensure the best materials were procured and utilised to achieve the most appropriate effect. The manufacturing process followed traditional methods, paying tribute to the historic context, whereas the daring composition and combinations gave the space a distinct personality. For example, a light is no longer a mere utility, but the personification of the clients’ preferences and experiences. The crystal chandelier of the dining room uses rock crystals from a Belgian mine, oozing delicate beauty and class, while bringing an interesting topic to the dinner table. The extra height chandelier for the grand spiral staircase forms a cascade of lights, echoing the dancing rhythms of the living room ceiling light installation.

  (P), as part of 49 Group was established in 2005 to provide professional and comprehensive architectural services. Its award-winning project Nook Dee Hotel is located in Phuket, Thailand. The site sits on a cliff at the south end of Kata beach, one of the most famous beaches in Phuket. Its topography slopes down to the north, south and west which allows the hotel to benefit from a sea view in each direction. Without a clear plan, the owner approached Architects 49 (Phuket) with a book entitled ‘Very Thai’. It reflected the simple elements behind true everyday life in Thailand. ‘Baan Nork’ is the name Thai people usually call a rural area. This inspired the architect to use the concept ‘Baan Nork Kao Krung’ or ‘the

clumsy state when rural people come to town’. The details integrated into the design of the guestrooms therefore reflect the colourful mix of Thai culture from various areas and eras. Conversely, the hotel’s all-day restaurant is called ‘Very Farang’ – the opposite of Very Thai – and represents European culture. The architect studied various alternative layouts seeking the best solution for the site and the client’s requirement for 60 guestrooms, viewing angles and minimising any adverse effects from the neighbouring hotel or private residences. After many consultations with the owner, the option which included a lawn space expanding the view to the vast ocean was chosen. This space is a metaphor for ‘tiang naa’, the small huts in rice fields that are seen across the countryside of Thailand.

House in Pakse

  T in 2001, Makoto Yamaguchi Design seeks to replicate the natural environment by creating architecture as beautiful scenery. Villa/ Gallery in Karuizawa, an area renowned for stunning natural scenery, is the first of two award-winning examples. The owners are a couple, both musicians and art collectors, who purchased land in the middle of a forest to build a small resort villa. They also wanted it to be a place where they could hold small concerts for friends as well as a gallery to showcase their art. The structure is designed as if softly touching down on to the forest floor, enabling it to blend into the scenery. Its overall interior design focuses on making the specific functions inconspicuous. Mirrors and glass have also been placed to connect the light and

line of sight with the outdoors. As a result, the residence offers a rich atmosphere for each of its diverse roles. House in Pakse, a huge residence with symmetrical wings simulating the palazzos of the Renaissance era, overlooks the magnificent Mekong River. One side of it is three storeys high with a total floor area of 1,500m² and was built for the daughter of the family. The project’s aim was to achieve a contemporary interior design for her without changing the exterior of the building. Using materials suggestive of Pakse’s waterfalls and rocks as well as golden teak from Laos, the design managed to achieve a perfect blend of the essence of both places. Contemporary glass, stainless steel and crystal was also used to achieve a harmonious fusion of contemporary and local elements.

Completed projects range across the world, including the UAE, Seychelles, UK, India and Singapore with a focus on elegant, contemporary interiors with a glamorous edge. With the Khalid Chawla villa, the brief was to restructure a double-storey house into two separate self-contained apartments, blending chic with comfort to create large living spaces. Another requirement was spacious master bedrooms with interconnecting dressing rooms. This project involved not just interior

redesigns, but a complete alteration of floorplans and structures. Interior choices include careful use of lines, textures, materials and lighting serving to expand rather than confine spaces. A striking fireplace feature wall partitions the lounge seating area from the sunlit breakfast room, while rosewood floors contrast with the cleaner mirrored lustre of black and white marble. Every piece of furniture has been custom-designed and built by Sam Abbas to match the extensive soft interiors and bespoke linens. Even the crockery and cutlery was meticulously selected to suit the client’s lifestyle and aesthetics. The overall feel is one of neutral, understated elegance, bringing peace and refined luxury to the home – both a showpiece and a sanctuary.

Established in 2010 by Harlan Redgen and Phillip Mathieson, the partners lead a design approach that is grounded in Modernist principles of authentic, timeless design and planning rigour. The company’s award-winning project Balmoral House was commissioned by Cameron Macdonald as a turn-key development and envisaged as a classic, timeless property. Located in a prominent position in the harbourside Sydney suburb of Balmoral, the large family residence’s quiet and composed architecture is subservient to the framed views. A high level of detail belies a perception of simplicity whilst materials have been selected to provide longevity.

The design scheme is characterised by its timeless use of simple form, material and space. Entry to the property is through the upper level with an expansive living space which opens on to a covered terrace with views to the water and bush land beyond. There are four bedrooms on the ground floor, each with en suite bathrooms and dressing rooms, opening to terraces and garden. Other highlights include a dramatic 4.5 metre high gallery space opening to the exteriors with motorised timber louvres and a swimming pool with adjacent lounge surrounded by dense planting for optimum privacy. The overall result is a house that has been designed to capitalise on its location and proximity to the water and incorporates both the attributes of a large family residence and sophisticated resort living.

It has accumulated a diverse body of work spanning hospitality, commercial, community, office, showroom and residential design. Initially approached to advise on the spatial planning for the lobby, Architology took over the branding and design of the lobby and café of this hotel. Situated in a larger mixed development, the Bespoke Hotel project represents an unusual contradiction – a budget boutique hotel that offers services not normally found in its peers such as a swimming pool and gymnasium. Architology’s role was to design the tripleheight lobby and café areas, taking cues from the concept of stitching in Bespoke suits.

Balancing an unconventional mix of industrial and luxury design with careful budgeting resulted in a lower layer of exposed rebar and concrete on the flooring, together with raw sawn timber cross sections. This transitions into another stratum of luxurious timber wainscoting, veneers, marbles and leathers. Finally, the highest layer uses clean vaulting to evoke travel and transport hubs, combined with custom brass chandeliers and a giant cross-stitch rendition of the hotel logo through reflective ceiling panels. All of this is centred around a focal reception desk hub and waiting area, making passage through what is otherwise quite a narrow area clear and intuitive, minimising the need for wayfinding signs and providing continuous flow through the space.

Inspired by an ‘oriental yard’, the building’s design combines innovative materials to create a functional space that provides a platform for sales and service between contractors and homebuyers. It is also a spiritual space expressing values with a view towards the future. Therefore, Breathing Light Fence not only embraces a grand sales service centre but also four stylistic types of model houses.

Through its glass structure, the design focuses on transparency, lightness and strength. Inside, there is a wooden fence that considers both the direction of the sun’s rays from the west and visual transparency. The wooden wall standing at over nine metres high is incorporated to separate the reception area but also serves to make the façade of the building shine like an elegant jewellery box. By connecting continuous grey and white irregular squares throughout the interior design, a dynamic and vivid ceiling line has been defined. Hanging metal lamps and installation artworks showcase crafts, while all details have been developed based on a concept of mixing and matching modern materials in an oriental artistic manner.

 W I H is a leading firm of interior and consulting services with a portfolio of successful projects of varying scale throughout Hong Kong and the Asia Pacific region. Its award-winning retail interior design project involves the new store Lusso Icona, a luxury home accessories and lifestyle outlet in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The client’s brief was to bring out the character of every brand, most of which are designed by artists and include custom made furniture imported from European countries. While each product has its distinct characteristics, the overall brand of Lusso Icona had to rise to the fore. With this important requirement of brand positioning,

The W has delivered a clean, elegant and spacious concept including many different design elements. Due to the irregular layout of the existing double shop unit, the final design achieves a delicate balance between its display and storage areas. A display cabinet has been used as a partition wall to separate the two, maximise the spaces and avoid any views being blocked by structural columns. Dark brown and white have been chosen as the main colour palette while a floating marble wall embellished with a gold leaf metal logo stands out as the overall brand image. By bringing ample natural daylight into the shop’s interiors, a welcoming feeling is experienced whilst also displaying the home lifestyle products to their best advantage.

 L I C was established in 1992 as one of the first private construction companies in Vietnam. Over the years the firm has gone from strength to strength achieving many awards, the latest of which is for Flora Fuji in District 9 of Hochiminh City. Co-developed by Nam Long and Japanese partners, Hankyu Realty and Nishitetsu, this condominium project is designed in a distinct Japanese style. It follows the success of Flora Sakura, the first of Nam Long’s affordable condominium product line branded Flora, and adheres to its strict 3G criteria: Gettable – Green – Greater. This entails having an affordable price, creating a green living environment

and giving owners a home of which they can be justifiably proud. Ideally located just 15 minutes from the CBD, Flora Fuji is aimed at middle-income buyers aged between 25-40 years. Each part of the project has a high level of perfection: such as using eco-friendly material, focusing on room functionality, simplifying design and limiting excess details to build an affordable condominium. The 18-storey apartment building has 789 units but on a 27% construction density. The remaining space is dedicated to integrated amenities such as a colourful Japanese garden filled with flowers, a barbecue area and café, swimming pool, community clubs, outdoor sports grounds, kindergartens and shopping centres.

Bennington Residences @ SkyArena, Setapak


W D, based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia is founded on one single vision – to be the best city developer. It aims to achieve this by providing the ultimate Sky Living experience in a sustainable environment – an award-winning concept it has developed and refined in a mission to enhance the experience of city living. Set on a generous 2.7-acre plot, Bennington Residences represents the second stage of SkyWorld’s iconic new landmark in the heart of SkyArena, the largest 28-acre master development in Setapak. Bennington Residences will provide an urban and active living experience as well as a welcoming and serene oasis for its residents. Inspired by the natural majesty of the Malaysian Rainforest Strata, each zone of its landscape represents the layers of a rainforest. The careful selection of nature-oriented hardscape finishing and

SkyLuxe On The Park @ Bukit Jalil

a mixture of both native and imported plant species prove key components in creating a unique yet sustainable landscape environment. SkyLuxe On The Park is on a 1.85-acre site, surrounded by the 80-acre Bukit Jalil Recreational Park and opposite the 165-acre, 18-hole Bukit Jalil Golf & Country Resort. Offering exclusive sky living with luxurious greenery views, the two 43-storey towers contain 477 residences. Their irregularly shaped exterior façades resemble the branches of trees to complement the natural surroundings. As the park is a natural habitat for an abundance of flora and fauna unique to the Malaysian tropical rainforest, this has inspired the landscape theme. Specially selected plants and design elements invite the co-habitation of wildlife within SkyLuxe’s surroundings, thus creating a harmonious coexistence between humans and nature.

The magnificent award-winning Banyan Tree Grand Residences project is a prime example. It consists of 19 exclusive and exquisite villas that combine serenity and architectural brilliance. Forming part of the Laguna Phuket integrated community which is within 1,000 acres of tropical parkland fronting the pristine Bangtao beach, residents have ready access to the resort’s many attractions. Each five-bedroom villa offers capacious living areas with an unsullied flow of interior design and the latest technologies. Rising gracefully above the water’s edge, a serene entrance courtyard leads through to an expansive shaded terrace linking the living areas to a large infinity pool with integrated Jacuzzi.

Whilst Banyan Tree is a well-known brand in Asia, it is relatively unknown in Australia. However, all this is to change with the launch of the award-winning Banyan Tree Residences in Brisbane. This represents not only the company’s first development in Australia but also Brisbane’s first luxury branded development. Inspired by its stunning clifftop location, this striking 11-storey building features three undulating wave structures. All 76 apartments have extensive balconies which serve as an extension of their impressive interior living areas. Additionally, the penthouses include private rooftop infinity pools with the most spectacular panoramic views of the CBD, river and botanical gardens. Residents also enjoy access to an integrated spa, restaurant and 24hour concierge.

The company, which is based in Pakistan, has won two awards for its prestigious residential high-rise development The Arkadians in Karachi. With distant views to the Arabian Sea, it is the only development of its kind in Pakistan with a golf course on one side and a creek on the other, combining both lush greenery as well as the water’s edge. The Arkadian’s Thirteen Residential Towers are predominantly of two heights – ground floor plus 32, and ground floor plus 26. They are positioned in a staggered configuration with 80 feet diagonally while 130-150 feet distance between towers. Logically, the taller towers are situated further from the creek and

golf course, enabling views both between and over the top of the shorter towers. An iconic roof canopy and pergola takes its inspiration from shells found by the Arabian Sea. Whilst being visually exciting, it essentially protects the roof gardens and terraces and provides privacy to the penthouses in the lower towers. Each of the 1,720 luxurious apartments will feature the best possible materials and finishes including Italian kitchens, Spanish tiles and German fittings. The building’s podium is heavily landscaped and completely pedestrianised with each tower having its own drop off point. The intention is to create a self-sufficient community with its own amenities in the podium including swimming pools, health clubs, sports facilities, day care and a mosque, all within the pedestrianised zone.

Cave B, Edf, Ieng Lei 3, Calcada Da Feitoria, Macau

  M, Nomad Design creates aesthetically beautiful as well as functional interior design concepts for private residences, restaurants, retail outlets and commercial offices. The company’s award-winning project is for a private, 150m² apartment in Macau Island Park. The client initially requested a hotel-like space. Instead, Nomad suggested the creation of a warm but luxurious home, influenced by the local hotel-casino culture. It features a classic-European style but with an eclectic twist. As the timeless feature of European interior design is timber moulding, Nomad has used this classic element to great effect in the project. In order to visually enlarge the space, the symmetry of decorative

mouldings has been broken to extend on to the side walls. The three-bedroom, three bathroom apartment has an irregular shape and is mainly divided into two parts. After walking through the main entrance door, the first sight is a foyer. The left side features an under-window bench seat which provides an ideal relaxation area when a gentle breeze blows. Bypassing the foyer, the dining and living area offers a fabulous view towards Macau through the balcony. The home is full of vibrant hues to appeal to all family members who have different characters and tastes. However, the underlying theme throughout the apartment’s design is one of sheer luxury with accessories and materials such as timber creating warmth.

The Grand Star Platinum


 P H G was founded in 2005 and has since become one of Cambodia’s most prominent property development companies. Two of its latest ongoing projects have won a total of three awards. Grand Star Platinum is a multi-residence project covering 200 hectares in the capital city of Phnom Penh. It is the largest housing project in the country with innovative architectural design that carefully considers space, light and ventilation and green areas. Each of the 10 phases has a different design theme and the highest quality materials, fixtures fittings and finishes feature both internally and externally. Borey Peng Huoth believes in creating a balance between its residential developments and a green environment. Providing attractive landscaped areas in which the community

Euro Ville

can relax and enjoy leisure pursuits is a main priority for the group. Grand Star Platinum’s landscaping therefore features different plantings providing shade from trees and shrubs, and floral colour and scent throughout its public gardens, parks and rooftop gardens. Phase eight of Grand Star Platinum is Euroville – an entertainment, leisure and hospitality development set over 3.11 hectares. It is zoned into thematic areas positioned along a canal vista and boulevard crescent, both of which transect the main axis of the development. The axis itself is the connection that leads to the grand conference ballroom of the Convention Hall. The resulting combination of residences, infrastructure network and public leisure amenities brought to Phnom Penh by Grand Star Platinum and Euroville will offer a superb new lifestyle for residents.

V Point

RK A  innovative solutions in architecture, planning, and interior design. The company has won awards for the two following architectural projects, both in Hong Kong. SCape involved the replacement of 10 outdated townhouses with a new development of eight properties, inspired by tropical resort hotels in South-east Asia. One of the main architectural design concepts and objectives was to design a house where the interior engages with the exterior. The architecture, landscape and spectacular scenery have all been designed to merge and flow into one another. This immersion into nature has been achieved by the lower row of houses being accessed at roof level to minimise the access road and maximise the landscaped areas.

Ground floor living rooms open out to the garden and infinity pool and look out over the sea views beyond. The project brief for V Point was for a ‘Ginza’ type tower with 12,457m² of commercial space in the heart of Causeway Bay. This typology originated from Japan where space is often limited and retail spaces have to develop upwards, connected by a series of lifts. The 30-storey tower takes inspiration from the shapes and qualities of diamonds and other gemstones. Its unique curtain wall is made up of over 2,000 different glass modules which reflect the sunlight at different angles. The resulting signature and iconic tower is a new destination and landmark for what is one of the major shopping and entertainment districts in Hong Kong.
