Our main focus this issue (although I’m sure you’ve already realised this by our beautiful snow-related cover) is skiing. We’ve explored the wintry virtues of five top European countries before looking towards five further mountain destinations across the USA and Canada. While skiing and winter sports facilities are obviously vitally important when choosing a chalet, lodge or apartment, the additional benefits of an all-season resort add to the property’s investment potential considerably. Not only will you and your family have year-round enjoyment of the home, this aspect is almost certain to raise its rental prospects and income significantly should you decide to let the property. Having the freedom to enjoy the great outdoors gives a great boost to your health and wellbeing whether it’s on ski slopes or in the heart of the city. And, if you’re immediately thinking the latter is not going to be so easy to achieve, please turn to our feature on London park-side properties where we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised. The capital has eight Royal Parks, all of which were former Royal hunting grounds, covering almost 5,000 acres and including fabulous lakes, sweeping lawns, trees and wildlife. Walking through the midst of any one of them you will soon forget you are actually in Greater London. However, owning a property nearby means that you also have close proximity to world-class shops, theatres and restaurants.

Park life

Owning a property near one of London’s magnificent parks means that you have the best of both worlds, vast landscaped spaces, fabulous views and many of the world’s finest shops and entertainment venues close by

Picture: Fitzroy Gate, Old Isleworth see page 16

herever you happen to be in the capital, there will be at least one of the city’s renowned parks within a short distance. There are no less than eight Royal Parks in Greater London covering around 4,882 acres; all former Royal hunting grounds that are now open for all to enjoy.

Shereen Malik, senior sales negotiator at United Kingdom Sotheby’s International Realty, says, “A home that is within close proximity to a park, particularly one of the Royal Parks, presents a highly attractive proposition for not only families, but also dog owners and those that like to exercise. In any built up urban area, green space is extremely desirable and homes that are close to an attractive, immaculately presented park such as Hyde Park or Regent’s Park will continue to command a premium. However, equally important is the increased marketability of these properties. A nearby park certainly adds value to a home, but it also generates more significant interest, acting as a strong selling point.” » 11

This iconic British hotel is a favourite choice of royalty, world leaders and celebrities and has been at the heart of London’s Mayfair overlooking Hyde Park since 1931


hether you are staying in one of The Dorchester’s exquisite rooms or suites, unwinding in the spa, enjoying Michelin-starred cuisine or indulging in an award-winning afternoon tea, you will experience the epitome of timeless glamour. Indeed, Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester is the only UK hotel restaurant with three Michelin-stars, putting its creative French cuisine firmly in London’s culinary spotlight. The hotel began a room and suite refurbishment programme back in 2012 with a fresh look by interior designer Alexandra Champalimaud. Spacious and elegant, each highly

luxurious room features specially commissioned fabrics, antique furniture and exceedingly comfortable beds, while the hotel’s white marble bathrooms are said to feature the deepest baths in London. Last November, The Dorchester completed its suite renovation project with the relaunch of the Belgravia Suites. They now feature exquisite marble fireplaces, walnut flooring and combine the colours of grey, blue and golden tones in soft furnishings. Offering unrivalled views across Hyde Park, they are named after an ideal location from which to enjoy the boutique shops, Regency-style streets and sweeping crescents. Guests staying in the Belgravia Suites will sample the ‘Essence of Belgravia’ through a discreet butler service performed to a ‘Royal Household’ standard. 

African continent and the region. Much of the undeveloped land held by foreigners, including the most pristine swath around Intendance Bay in the southern-most part of the main island, Mahé, was nationalised. This land was held by none other than George Harrison of The Beatles and actor Peter Sellers. The title deeds disappeared – tucked away in a local attorney’s office. A few years later, a chance encounter with the racing driver Jackie Stewart resulted in Ammann being introduced to George Harrison’s business manager. Following discussions about the Seychelles, negotiations ensued to regain the property. By now new developments on the island were gradually being approved under very strict guidelines. When the original deed was finally tracked down, an offer was negotiated and the scene was set for the first

LIVING WITH GODS People, places and worlds beyond This thought-provoking exhibition presents religious beliefs in a novel way not through the doctrines but the objects and symbols that people across time have created for a wide range of devotional, superstitious, cultural and ceremonial reasons. The exhibition takes us on a meditative, sometimes funny and often tragic journey through the existential byways of the human mind: there are shrines and signs, masks and flasks and many a terror, such as the Mexican Devil figure. The oldest exhibit is Lion Man – a carved figure, half man, half beast, made from the tusk of a woolly mammoth. It is some 40,000 years old and is worn smooth by handling, hence it is assumed to be a devotional object. Lion Man was discovered in an inner cave in 1939 in fragments. Supported by the Genesis Foundation, Living with Gods is part of a collaboration with the BBC and Penguin Books. Until April 8th at the British Museum, London, UK 

First impressions More than 10 years in the making, and hugely anticipated, the opening of the Louvre Abu Dhabi is a momentous event, a milestone for the cultural enrichment of the Emirates and the first museum in the region to present works spanning the whole of human history from Paleolithic times to the 21st century. While the ‘rain of light’ effect of Jean Nouvel's 180-metre wide dome, a star patterned ‘parasol’ has seized the headlines, the galleries are the real stars. The ambition of the Louvre Abu Dhabi to be a 'universal museum' is born to an extent from the problems of acquiring art worthy of such an institution when great works are almost impossible to come by (whatLouvre Abu Dhabi

ever your budget) and some artists are not available at all. The decision

The Rain of Light created by the dome designed by Jean Nouvel

taken at the outset to present the works in way that breaks conventions


as a cross-cultural series of chapters beginning with The First Villages and moving to A Global Stage is a means of addressing the problem.

Old Masters Now Celebrating the Johnson Collection


n the wake of the astonishing £450 million auction of Salvator Mundi, now attributed by several – if not all experts – to Leonardo da Vinci, we might suppose that Old Masters’ prices will start to compete with those of contemporary works. Hence the reason why Christie's entered the Leonardo into a contemporary art auction. So an exhibition of one of the finest collections

of European paintings, including many Old Masters, ever formed in the United States is timely. Interestingly authentication – at the heart of the Leonardo story – is one of the key issues dealt with in detail here. The works were gifted to Philadelphia in 1917 by John Gravel Johnson, a

great and wealthy corporate lawyer of the city. The roll call of Renaissance greats is astonishing: works by Botticelli, Bosch and Titian rub shoulders with those of Rembrandt and Hieronymus Bosch while 'modern' masters include Manet and Monet. The discovery of a painted over skeleton in Judith Leyster’s painting The Last Drop – removed for aesthetic reasons but now recovered is

extraordinary facts: Johnson, who relied often on his own judgement as

And relax...

We consult two award-winning interior designers for advice on creating lounges that are every bit as comfortable as they are stylish


ost lounges have to perform two very different functions. While they have to be a cosy place for the family to feel literally ‘at home’, they also have to create an impact for entertaining guests. Based in London, Cochrane Design individually tailors interiors to create beautiful solutions for each client. When designing lounges, Sean Cochrane, the firm’s director, advises that the first major consideration is what the client will see when they first walk in. “Whether it’s architectural, a piece of furniture, or lighting, it’s the use of colours in interior spaces as the translation of abstract colour schemes, theories and » meanings into real materials and surfaces.


Interiors.indd 1

13/12/2017 11:21


If you are going to use carpet, you have to consider the other materials you have used, and make sure that it doesn’t seem too like a bedroom

“It is very important to think about lighting and how it can affect the mood. Depending on the space, and what you have to work with, lighting can really induce a wow factor. Whether it is a large chandelier piece in the centre, or whether it is a collection of smaller lights, or accent lighting, highlighting a key area/piece


of art or furniture in a room. It can really change the mood of a space without compromising functionality or affecting the comfort of the space.” For a lounge, Sean suggests an open layout but with some select private and coveted areas throughout the space. “It needs to be obvious to the clients where they can go for a more private time and where they can interact socially,” he says. “At present we have found darker, richer colours are more popular, and work extremely well within high-end lounges. The rich and dark colour schemes work well with the idea of luxury and plush spaces. Navy blues work particularly well, but make sure to add a splash of colour here and there, whether it is bright fabric on bar stools, or a bright sofa, make sure to not forget bright colours completely. “Rich velvets and other plush fabrics upholstered on to chairs and sofas are good if you want to create a comfortable yet luxurious space. Bar stools are also important to use, and appeal to those wanting to sit alone, or just wanting to perch for a short time. Leather is a great and interesting material to use and creates a wonderful natural pattern using texture. Material wall covering can also work well and, if you are using tables, choose small ones to rest a drink on.” Lastly, Sean advises that it is vital to think about acoustics when deciding on the flooring. “If you are going to use carpet, you have to consider the other materials you have used, and make sure that it doesn’t seem too like a bedroom. We tend to go for a treated wooden flooring, which we sometimes finish with a rug in certain areas of the space.” 56

Taking a holistic approach Stirixis Exclusive is the unit of Stirixis Group that focuses on the creation of private villas, apartments, lofts and vacation homes. Its design repertoire is wide and always perfectly fits the company’s distinguished clients’ wishes. Elena Athanassoulas, vicepresident and executive director of Stirixis Group, says, “The lounge area is part of a wider context and design. It is not a singular, detached area and it shouldn’t be designed this way. Rather, one should consider the space itself, the surrounding areas, the general feel of the home and what the customer needs.”

As for the type of lay-out that works best, Elena believes there is no single correct answer. “What I can say after more than 20 years of experience is that good use of ‘corridors’ should be made in the lounge. In other words, making use of space and the placement of furniture in a way that divides the area and creates pathways that subconsciously guide the guest around the lounge and make everything accessible.” The centrepiece of the lounge, for Elena, is the sofa and she says that this should be functional and comfortable but, most importantly, appropriate to the overall design. “We then move on to other comfortable furniture such as armchairs, then coffee tables and art pieces. The lounge area is usually

the most frequented space in the residence. The owners usually spend most of their time there but it also serves as the de-facto spot for accommodating visitors. This means that the materials chosen must be durable enough to withstand frequent use. As for the aesthetics of the carpet and floor, it must be compatible with the overall concept and the taste of the owner, or else it disturbs the overall feeling of the room. “For us, the wow factor is a lounge that gives off a complete feeling of tranquillity where all your senses are harmonised, allowing you to relax. By using the right materials that respond to our vision as well as the customer’s, placing them appropriately in the available space, and then making sure that things like sound, smell, and visuals enhance the feeling of comfort are addressed is part of our holistic approach. We won’t use any incompatible colours that might disturb the harmony of the room. Usually we find that earthly colours work best for lounge areas, but always accompanied by art pieces that break the sense of monochromy.” 

The yacht’s spacious 22’ 6" beam, coupled with the open salon floor plan lined with large, frameless windows, create the ambiance of a beach house surrounded by the sea. Owners have a choice of indoor dining options – in addition to the

traditional dining table located near the bulkhead, there is also a wraparound dinette in the Atrium galley forward, which is bathed with light by the super-sized skylight overhead. The lower-deck guest area has four large staterooms, all with en suite heads, accommodating a total of eight guests in privacy. The master suite is full-beam and amidships, with its king-sized berth set slightly off-centre. The master bath has twin sinks and large shower. Separate crew quarters encompass a captain’s cabin with double berth, twin bunkroom, head, and galley/lounge area, all finished to the same high standard as the rest of the interior. The M90 Panacera excels at outdoor entertaining with an aft deck complete with a big settee, dining table and built-in bar. The yacht also features the next generation of Hatteras foredeck lounge, featuring a comfortable cocktail/dining area and huge sun lounge. However, the flybridge is sure to be the most popular spot for alfresco dining and entertaining onboard. A large hardtop shades the fully equipped helm station, an adjoining table for eight, a long settee, chair and bar. HattCON, another Hatteras innovation, makes its debut in the M90 Panacera. The new, proprietary total ship management system fully integrates the yacht’s navigation, vessel monitoring and automation systems into a seamless touchscreen interface. The yacht also features a Crestron marine automation system, putting intuitive ease of use of the yacht’s onboard entertainment right at owners’ and guests’ fingertips. It will allow them to use the iPads provided onboard to control audio source, volume, and acoustics anywhere in the yacht. Similar functionality is present for the video distributed throughout the yacht’s large interior TV screens and the equally impressive drop-down TVs on the aft deck and flybridge. 60

Book a boat

Boatsters, a leading rental platform for yachts and boats, grew impressively from 19 to 63 countries, with a portfolio of over 12,000 rental boats. By developing an innovative solution for the maritime industry, they made it possible to rent a boat as simple as booking a hotel room. Their hybrid business model provides owners with the possibility to rent out their boats and yachts through the platform. Moreover, fleet operators are also being provided with extra customers by listing their fleet on the platform. This combination gives clients the opportunity to experience renting with a local boat owner or to take advantage of the professionalism of affiliated partners. With the recently launched new label dubbed Boatsters Black, yachts starting from 60 feet are now available for those clients with high demands and standards. Both

owners and renters benefit from a global concierge service that takes care of all demands and special wishes. Boatsters is now aiming to expand even further, towards the United States, not just from a regular workspace but executing business from the company’s own yacht office. The Pershing 88 super yacht has been modified to be an office with global internet, phone lines and traditional office space.

New Vantage unveiled For seven decades the heartbeat of Aston Martin’s purest models, the Vantage nameplate has been worn by some true icons. First used in 1951 on a high-output engine option for the DB2, Vantage was quickly established as a model in its own right. Highlights include the William Towns-designed V8 Vantage, spectacular twin-supercharged V600 Le Mans and the much-loved V8 Vantage. Now this formidable sporting dynasty is hitting new heights with the introduction of the latest Vantage. The heart of the Vantage is its potent new alloy, 4-litre twin-turbo V8 engine. Set low and as far back in the chassis as possible, it ensures optimal centre-of-gravity and perfect 50:50 weight distribution. Capable of accelerating from 0 to 60mph in 3.5 seconds and on to a maximum speed of 195mph, it employs a sophisticated suite of integrated electronic systems to offer maximum control and driver enjoyment. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in the second quarter of this year. From £120,900 

four-door in the world

aguar’s SVO-developed XE SV Project 8 is now the world’s fastest four-door car, following a production-intent prototype’s record lap of the Nürburgring Nordschleife. The incredible time of 7 minutes 21.23 seconds is nearly 11 seconds quicker than the previous fastest sedan around the legendary 12.9-mile German circuit and puts the 600PS Project 8 ahead of some of the world’s fastest two-door coupés and supercars.

Designed, engineered and hand-assembled by SVO, the car is capable of 0-60mph in 3.3 seconds and a top speed of 200mph. Mark Stanton, SVO Director, said, “The SVO design and engineering team’s mission was to create the most track-focused road-legal Jaguar in history – not only the fastest, but also the most agile.”

Go for green A limited number of bespoke McLaren 570GT models have become available to a fortunate few buyers in the UK and Europe. Commissioned from McLaren Special Operations as an MSO Collection, the six cars are finished in McLaren historic ‘XP Green’ exterior paint – the same colour as the famous F1 XP GT ‘Longtail’ homologation model built in 1997. The Saddle Tan leather interior additionally features green leather inserts in the seats and green contrast stitching, as well as a dedication plaque mounted on the centre tunnel beneath the infotainment screen identifying each car as one of six in the Collection. The exterior of the car is adorned with Saddle Tan aero pin-striping edging the front aero blades, side skirts and rear diffuser, while each door carries a stripe of the same colour that runs rearwards from a subtle Union Jack emblem finished in silver-grey. The MSO content in each is identical and adds £21,000 to the final price. Approx £188, 570

limbing into this car is the operative word as it sits higher than all other comparably fast cars capable of reaching over 180 mph. However, the air suspension will allow it to drop down to allow those

wearing short skirts or kilts a degree of modesty to enter and exit the car. Featuring the highest quality wood and leather British craftsmanship, this luxurious SUV is beyond anything that has been previously made. There are so many controls to take in that you may have to curb your curiosity if driving in traffic and wondering what various buttons will do. With so many options you can specify, it will take new owners a few days to learn them all. This is not only a very quick car but it will also go places no sports car can. Much of the earth that is not covered in oceans is now at your beck and call. Although many might dismiss the offroad capability as they have no plans to take excursions off piste or into the backwoods, it is precisely the car’s off-road handling that makes it exceptionally safe for unpredictable occurrences on the tarmac. That is what you pay for, peace of mind and the safety of you, your passengers and other road users. A multitude of switchable sensors offer warnings and help you avoid wandering from lane to lane. Automatic breaking slows the car if the vehicle ahead unexpectedly switches lanes or brakes; night vision with infrared picks out people in yellow; and wing mirrors emit warnings if cars enter your blind spot. The roads in and surrounding many towns and cities are more often than not laden with traffic, speed cameras, signs and hazards so having a car which lessens the stress has to be applauded. Another valuable safety device is the head up display where the main instruments appear on the windscreen just below the sight line. This allows drivers to keep their eyes on the road rather than glancing down at the speedometer every time a speed camera comes into view. The ride height of many SUVs makes them wallow around corners but the Bentayga feels like it is on tracks and the positive feedback you get through the bends gives every confidence to enjoy them. There are two engine options, either diesel or petrol. The petrol W12 6 litre engine gives the highest performance while the diesel will take you further for every litre. Personalisation when buying new will give you a chance to own a unique car but don’t be surprised if your two-seater sports GT starts to gather dust at the back of your garage after the Bentayga is delviered.

We have a strictly limited number of opportunities available to experience a test drive of up to two days in a Bentley Bentayga. If you would like to be considered for this, please email

he latest Ski Property Report from Knight Frank has found that ski resorts are investing heavily in their facilities to establish themselves as dual season resorts. With non-skiers now estimated to account for 25% of alpine visitors resorts are realigning their leisure offer, with water parks, spas and mountain bike trails now broadening their appeal. Knight Frank advises that buyers increasingly fall into two camps; those seeking a dual-season resort to maximise year-round rentals and those targeting high altitude resorts offering reliable winter snowfall. Investment in ski and nonski infrastructure is definitely influencing buyer demand. Since it hosted the first ever Winter Olympic Games way back in 1924, the town of Chamonix has been synonymous with skiing during the winter months. However, the area’s growing year-round appeal and rising property values means that it’s no longer just powder-hounds who are taking an interest in this beautiful pocket of France. Annick Dauchy, property business development manager of FrenchEntree, comments, “As Chamonix maintains its reputation as a yearround destination, we’ve seen a marked increase in buyers looking to part-fund their holiday home investment through its rental potential. Values in prime areas of the valley are rising swiftly and the promising underlying rental value is opening the area up to an array of new buyers.” Jessica Delaney of Alpine Marketing reports that, currently, Austrian property prices are on average 28% below those found in France and Switzerland. However, she warns that it will not stay this way for long. “Demand and property prices are growing quickly, and will continue to do so into 2018. With some Austrian resorts offering impressive rental returns of up to 6% per year, there has never been a better » time to buy your dream chalet in Austria.” 77

golden visas

New horizons Over the last decade, several European countries have introduced

initiatives to attract much needed investment through the purchase

of property from overseas buyers. We consult a number of property experts who explain more about the Golden Visa programme

he global economic crisis which hit in 2008 affected real estate markets across a wide spectrum. Since then, certain countries have tried to stimulate their economies and increase investment flows using Golden Visa programmes, through which authorities grant citizenship and residency for buying real estate. Yulia Kozhevnikova, a property expert from Tranio an international real estate broker, explains, “A Golden Visa gives holders the right to travel freely across the EU, while owning a ‘safe haven’ asset, and profiting from

the investment. There are several ways to gain residence in the European Union, including obtaining a wealth visa, which obliges applicants to change their tax residency, opening a business, or marrying a EU national. “These strategies work for those who plan on moving there. However, many people want to obtain residency for other purposes, such as to facilitate interaction with foreign banks, travel freely across the EU, or as a safety precaution in case of an urgent need to emigrate (this being one of the major motives among Turkish, Iranian, Russian and Chinese nationals). “A good option in such cases is the so-called Golden Visa; a residence permit issued to buyers of real estate or other assets above a certain value. This is the easiest and the quickest way to obtain a residence permit. The most accessible immigration programmes in the EU are those offered by Latvia, Portugal, Spain, Greece and Malta.”

has always been a great demand for European Golden Visas from the Middle East, Asia and Africa, and lately a great appetite for citizenshipby-investment programmes. “Greece is an incredibly attractive and popular destination in Europe and provides one of the best visa programmes currently available,” she says. “The country offers options for non-EU citizens who purchase real estate valued at €250,000 or more, offering one of the lowest residency costs in Europe.” David Branch, managing director, Development Project Marketing, Christie’s International Real Estate, adds, “Every scheme is different; in Portugal, a minimum property investment of €500,000 is required

and you can apply for permanent residence after five years and citizenship after six years without needing to live in Portugal. “However, the rules in Spain are slightly different in that a €500,000 real estate investment will gain family residency. The Spanish investor visa can be renewed every two years and after five years investors can gain permanent residency and citizenship after 10 years. The Greek Golden Visa is one of the newest having launched in 2013. The visa is granted for five years and can be renewed every five years if the property investment is retained. However, citizenship can only be granted after seven years of residency. “In Italy, the government introduced a non-domiciled regime earlier this year to attract foreign taxpayers to Italy. The initiative exempts foreign income from Italian tax in exchange for a payment of €100,000 a year, with an additional €25,000 for each family member to which the non-dom regime may be extended. The new non-dom scheme in Italy which was launched around the same time the UK changed its own non-dom rules, may suggest the country is looking to entice high net

worth individuals who may be looking to relocate after the UK leaves the European Union.” As for Cyprus, Pantelis M Leptos, joint director of Limassol Del Mar, comments, “For buyers outside of the EU, citizenship is acquired when purchasing property for a minimum of €2 million in total investment with full payment in advance. Cyprus is unique in its offering of citizenship within just six months of such an investment and paperwork can be started within days of the investment. This grants a Cypriot passport and EU citizenship, allowing the freedom to work, travel, study and live anywhere within the EU including countries such as Germany, France and the UK. “The investment can be reduced down after three years to just €500,000. In addition to the real estate investment, applicants will need a clear criminal record. Qualifying family members include spouses and children. Parents can also qualify by making a further €500,000 investment in real estate. “Very simple documents are required for the application. It is easy to apply and there is no requirement to stay in the country. The citizenshipby-investment scheme is particularly appealing to global butterflies who spend their time between various destinations, as it not only grants the buyer citizenship to Cyprus but also the right for the whole family to obtain citizenship.”

Towards the future

f you’re looking for the ideal ski home it’s likely that location, reliable snowfall, varying levels of runs and a full range of both ski and resort facilities all feature highly on your list of priorities. According to the latest Knight Frank Ski Report, Aspen heads the list of most aspirational US ski resorts, a position it has held since it first opened in 1946. Spread across four very different local mountains; Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk and Snowmass, the resort is now home to nearly 7,000 permanent residents. Andrew Ernemann, broker associate of Aspen Snowmass Sotheby's International Realty, reports that the Aspen real estate market has enjoyed a phenomenal run over the past seven plus years and thus far it doesn’t look like any major changes are on the horizon. “Sales of downtown Aspen properties have experienced strong demand as a result of a demographic shift toward a desire for convenience, particularly at the upper-end of the market,” he explains. “The West End and Red Mountain neighbourhoods have also been particularly strong and have further established their foothold as the priciest Aspen sub-markets. Prices have increased approximately 5-10% each of the past few years in these areas. Sales at price points over $10 million and over $2,000 per square foot have been on record pace. Supply has also been on the decline, leaving fewer options for buyers.”

An exciting segment of the Aspen real estate market is the new development projects currently under construction. “Buyers are taking delivery of the first five of 14 new townhomes at the base of Aspen Mountain (The One Aspen), The W Hotel is under construction in downtown Aspen and two other new lodge projects are winding their way through the approval process,” says Mr Ernemann. “The Base Village project in Snowmass Village has some really great momentum with a new Limelight Hotel slated to open in 2018 as well as numerous other new buildings and improvements currently underway.” Another interesting shift in the Aspen real estate market over the past several years has been an increased focus on more contemporary design. “The days of heavier mountain styles and colour palettes have not faded completely but are certainly in lower demand. Lighter, brighter materials and cleaner lines have found their way into the recent slew of spec homes that have sold or are currently on the market. The style pendulum is always in motion and presently it looks like general preferences are shifting toward a healthy balance of contemporary design combined with the warmth and ruggedness of the mountains.” Over in Canada, John Ryan has been selling real estate in Whistler, British Columbia for almost 30 years. He advises that sales activity in the Whistler marketplace continued to be brisk throughout the third quarter of 2017, albeit at a slower pace than the first half of the year. Interest in an investment at Whistler continues to be high and this, combined with the restricted supply, has led to a continued upward movement in values. “The luxury segment of Whistler’s real estate market continues to be strong with significant sales in the $5 million CDN plus price range,” says Mr Ryan. “A low Canadian dollar, historically low interest rates and stunning quality residences have attracted both international and » domestic demand.”

EMES    specialising in high-end tourism and residential development and operations, founded by Captain Vassilis Constantakopoulos, with the aim to establish his homeland Messinia as a top international destination while preserving and protecting its heritage and environment. Located in the southwest Poloponnese area of Greece, Messinia is one of the world’s most breathtaking Mediterranean seaside landscapes. The company’s flagship development Costa Navarino is an ambitious and far-ranging collection of five luxury resort areas that will feature extensive facilities and year-round activities for adults and children alike. Overlooking 1.5km of sandy beachfront, Navarino Dunes is the first area in operation, home to two luxury five-star hotels – The Romanos, a Luxury Collection Resort and The Westin Resort – and The Dunes Course, the first signature golf course in Greece. Another


world-class golf course, The Bay Course, will form part of the second area, Navarino Bay. Further attractions include the 4000m² Anazoe spa and thalassotherapy centre, a state-of-the-art conference centre, specially designed facilities for children and a variety of gastronomic, sports and cultural options. 21 restaurants and bars, together with 14 retail shops cover the whole gamut of needs for residents. Activities include bowling, squash, climbing, basketball, hiking, biking and every water sport imaginable. All of this is set in one of the highest biodiversity regions in Europe, shaped by 4500 years of history and with three UNESCO World Heritage sites within a short driving distance. Yet this unspoilt area is easily accessible through direct flights to Kalamata airport from more than 25 major European cities. At the heart of Navarino Dunes is the award-winning Navarino Residences, an

exclusive collection of luxury villas for private ownership. Located as close as 30 metres from the beachfront or nestling amongst verdant olive groves, each villa has guaranteed unobstructed sea views for life as a result of environmental legislation. The initial phase of freehold pool villas range from 250-1000m² internally, with plots from 1500-3000m². For each main location (Panorama, Golf Front and Beachfront) three fundamental villa designs are available, created by award-winning Greek architects to suit the locations available. Designs meld local elements and natural materials with the latest standards in contemporary architecture and construction. These are distinctive architectural creations with roots in the past, resonance in the present, and an eye to the future. Off-plan villas have extensive customisation options within a carefully mandated framework that

ensures harmony with the development as a whole. The result is an ongoing development that is in keeping with the region – a consistent and appropriate design to retain continuity. Naturally, owners will have privileged access to the resort’s five-star amenities and facilities, plus private olive groves, vineyards and vegetable gardens with the possibility to produce wine and olive oil. Comprehensive property management services are available to ensure peace of mind and ease of living. Sustainability is an important factor – water management, recycling, energy efficiency and the preservation of natural habitats are touchstones to maintain the continuing viability of the development for the future, creating homes and environments to last the ages. The result is one of the most impressive new developments in Europe that will continue to evolve and grow into maturity.

   Frankfurt and Berlin, Pecan Development creates living and working environments with an eye to the future. Its wide-ranging remit includes individual office, residential and hospitality projects, extending to full development of urban districts and revitalisation programmes. The company takes a holistic approach, intertwining development, architecture and interior design. The award-winning Marienturm office building is part of a larger scale Marieninsel development in the CBD of Frankfurt/Main. At 155 metres high and spread across 38 storeys, it will form the standout element of a plot that also includes a 40-metre tall Marienforum and a new public square:

Marienplatz. Pecan Development brought renowned Berlin architects Müller Reimann Architekten and famed interior design studio Urquiola Milan together to create this further commercial expansion in one of Europe’s leading financial centres. The design of the public spaces inside the buildings is thus receiving equal attention to that given to the aesthetic design and urban planning of the buildings themselves. Although the new build is designed to blend with the existing setting, it also creates clearly defined, new urban spaces. The urban and architectural concept underlying the design innovatively responds to both needs. The high-rise podium forms a small block and defines clear urban spaces and proportions

in its immediate vicinity. The tower then rises up from the podium in a simple yet striking shape. This consists of two sleek, superimposed slabs, structuring the large mass of the building and emphasising its vertical thrust. The spatial interaction of the individual parts of the overall volume changes depending on the location and line of vision. A key goal of the project from the beginning was to focus on the needs of future users. The aim was to create a working environment that blends professionalism with increased personal well-being. In line with the high standards set, the usage mix provides a diverse range of services for future office tenants. These include high-grade

office areas, hospitality outlets, retail units, fitness amenities, childcare facilities and a public plaza. Floor 34 offers a spectacular roof terrace of approximately 340m². This floor provides conference facilities for around 155 people and an event area for more than 200 guests. The resulting ensemble creates a new urban cosmos in the heart of the city. Not least, the development on Marieninsel will give rise to a collection of buildings that will emphatically shape the face of the microlocation and the city of Frankfurt as a whole. With its striking silhouette, Marienturm will emerge as an unmistakable landmark in the skyline and as a new, attractive magnet, Marienplatz will bring new life to a thus upgraded Central Business District.

   a leading development company based in Istanbul, Turkey which has been successful in winning awards for two different aspects of its latest project, Buyukyali. The mixed-use development is in a spectacular location on the coastline bordering the Marmara Sea. It promises to become a highly sought after new residential quarter in one of the world’s most exhilarating cities. The challenge of Buyukyali’s masterplan was to design an exciting and sustainable place to live for families, singles and young couples. It had to bring together all the elements of a city and also outline the story of the neighbourhood of Kazlicesme’s evolution from a derelict military site into a complex urban community, bridging the gap between the city’s edge and the sea. The masterplan’s configuration therefore consists of carefully located high-rise towers,


with all apartments provided with balconies, streets leading to the sea with oriel windows, south facing courtyards and garden courtyards with colourful planting, rills, fountains and reflective water features. One of the key areas of its concept was to create a strong sense of place, capitalising and enhancing the existing character of the site. The historic buildings, each of which has a strong identity, are to be preserved. Through careful adaptation, they have the potential to convert to unique new residences and community buildings that will invigorate the masterplan with valuable historical and cultural heritage, thus bringing a unique energy to the development. All functions of Buyukyali will be developed to satisfy the needs and tastes of the targeted upper-class market. These will include the main component of the project which is

residential properties; a 250 – 260-room hotel managed by an upscale international chain; offices conforming to EU standards for national and international companies; and commercial, social and cultural areas. A traditional palette of colour and materials has been used, inspired by Istanbul’s historic, defensive city wall. The masterplan uses natural stone and brick materials to create contemporary buildings with an enduring character. The aim is that they will age gracefully to preserve Buyukyali’s aesthetic value for future generations to enjoy. The development offers its inhabitants a concept that is both safe and integrated with social life. Four main gates in the project allow safe entry into and out of the squares and common areas. Furthermore, it provides a concierge service, security check points, vehicle recognition system, vehicle barrier

systems, a receptionist, doorman, camera systems and private security to ensure residents’ total peace of mind. Residences also feature smart systems including touch and mobile control panels. Buyukyali is designed to be a sustainable, self-contained urban community. Materials used minimise the development’s impact on the environment, solar panels are placed on rooftops and A+ energy efficient white goods are installed in residences. Open streets with active edges interpret the traditional city in a contemporary way, while an extensive and wide variety of landscaping is incorporated as part of the cityscape. These areas prove ideal for walking, relaxing, playing and sheltering from the sun. Overall, Buyukyali offers a state-ofthe-art, 21st century lifestyle for its residents whilst also retaining its important historical links to the past.

-E A is an international practice with studios in Brussels, Leuven and Hasselt and a growing presence in Eastern Europe. The first of the company’s two latest award-winning projects is The Cond’Or in uptown Brussels, Belgium. It involves the renovation of a disused series of four abandoned 1960’s office buildings to create a high-end residential ensemble of 78 units built above an existing retail gallery. Additional free-form levels erected above the original structure have created one-ofa-kind glass-enclosed penthouse units with 360-degree views over the city’s skyline. The use of white natural Marbella stone, bow windows and a glass-enclosed crowning roof have transformed the office block into an attractive residential development which has become part of the integrated urban fabric.

Gateway & Passport is a highly flexible Grade A office complex right in the heart of Brussels Airport which integrates as much as possible of the obsolete terminal wings. The chosen design also incorporates a newly built wing, the existing 1958 air traffic control tower (which is retained for emergency use only) and the newly built additional upper levels of the original wings. Designed to accommodate prime tenants such as Deloitte, KPMG and Microsoft, both Gateway & Passport have a 25-metre atrium space. This is effectively designed to be an extension of the working and meeting environment with a multitude of restaurants, coffee shops, auditorium and meeting spaces. Gateway was created in cooperation with A2RC Architects and developed by Immobel and Codic.

Kadikoy Mixed-use Project

F 2017-2018

  , iki design group is an internationally-renowned architecture and design studio based in Istanbul, Turkey. The company has enjoyed phenomenal success, winning eight awards across five of its latest mixed-use architectural projects. The design approach for Bayramoglu was totally dependent on creating a healthy and sustainable waterfront town; an urban-escape destination that harmonises green areas with the blue sea. Located within the boundaries of Kocaeli Municipality in Darica District, Turkey, the 386,566m² plot had been granted permission for a 720,000m² development. The client brief required iki to design a new urban area specifically as a healthy living space with ample social and public spaces, large green areas and recreational opportunities, residential units and complementary urban functions. The completed concept includes a marina, waterfront landscape design, restaurants, swimming pools, a theme park, dormitory block, health centre, hotel, residential areas,

retail and working areas. Conserving the natural coastal and historical characteristics of Bayramoglu, iki has given the site an injection of new urban life. Kadikoy is on a site close to Kurbagalidere stream which is being revitalised by a large-scale recreation plan. This will connect the Fikirtepe urban regeneration area with large recreational areas exactly where the Kadikoy mixed-use project is located. The neighbourhood culture of Fikirtepe with its social relationships and childhood friendships has always been central to the design concept of the regeneration area. This led the design for Kadikoy to emerge from children playing games on their neighbourhood streets; like a peg top spinning around in a smooth and dynamic way. Positioned between the surrounding vernacular architecture and modern architecture of both the future and regeneration masterplan area, Kadikoy acts as a mediator for these differing designs. Its three towers, the animated length of the buildings and their

colourful façades emphasise the centre of the development and balance its structure. Each tower features a green roof while the office building has a swimming pool at its crown. Uskudar is located on the Anatolian side of Istanbul which is noted for its historic value and monumental bazaar and mosque architecture. The project’s unique design represents earth, water and sky. This is expressed by the earthy terracotta coloured façade inspired by the mansions, sea, hills and Uskudar’s traditional houses. Representing a vibrant and new subcentre for the district, the development’s multilayered functions balance both day and night use. The long, linear plot has been articulated into three primary uses; a rectilinear form defines the retail areas on the ground floor represents earth with organic forms addressing the main public or open spaces. Gentle terracing and landscaping characterises water and refers to the dynamic offices on the first floor.

Maltepe is situated alongside Istanbul’s most famous Bagdat Boulevard with a design that focuses on strengthening the mutual interaction between the project site and its urban environment. The development comprises four blocks ranging from seven to 17 floors high, all connected to the same base. Blending retail and residential functions, Maltepe complements its surroundings whilst also preserving residents’ privacy and creating an alternative ‘pocket’ retail axis at the same time. Vadikoru consists of three residential blocks, two office blocks and a retail base in the Cendere Valley area, next to Maslak Business District. Providing a new alternative office development, the office buildings’ design has been inspired by the form of a crystal with horizontal layers, while the detailed glazed façade adds a unique touch. The main aim of the project was to create a modern working environment that provides a strong identity by linking architecture and landscape together.

One Bishopsgate Plaza will be located on Bishopsgate, adjacent to Liverpool Street Station at the heart of the City of London. Its aim is to create a vibrant, high-quality, mixeduse development of residential, hospitality and retail elements. Strategically placed in the northeast corner of the capital’s main financial district, the new Pan Pacific London will be uniquely individualised yet an authentic and original hotel, capturing the cultural diverseness of the East End. The hotel’s 237 guest rooms are located between levels 6 and 19, with food and beverage outlets, wellness amenities and

meeting rooms located on the lower floors. The ballroom will be located at basement level 3, underneath the public plaza. One Bishopsgate Plaza will also include 160 luxurious residential apartments from level 20 to 41, with a dedicated residents’ club. The project also includes the restoration of Devonshire Row, a series of mid-Victorian terrace buildings, which will be adapted for retail and commercial use. The hotel and residential accommodation is set in a slender, high-rise tower, designed to make a harmonious transition between the lower scale of the Bishopsgate Conservation Area to the north and that of the City’s tall building cluster to the south. No existing City facilities match the scale and quality of those proposed for the hotel and residences at One Bishopsgate Plaza. They therefore offer a significant contribution as an attractive location for business and commerce.

The first of the multi-award winning company’s two latest successful projects is a two-storey penthouse apartment with a roof terrace which Sergey created for his own family of four. As he is fond of Japan, the philosophy of Wabi Sabi with its irregularity and asymmetry, respect for old things, natural materials and rough textures were implemented into his design. The apartment was imagined as a bridge between the minimalistic Japanese and bright Ukranian colours and forms. Combining the very best of ancient and modern, while infused with the latest technologies and

contemporary art, the apartment also contains 17th century tables and antique vases dating back to 5200-3500 BC. Perfectly demonstrating the versatility of Sergey Makhno Architects, its award-winning office moves away from tradition to form a creative working space that feels more like home. Decorated with items of symbolic value, the office is also a showroom where customers can see, touch and try products and materials used in the company’s interior design projects. A small staircase leads up to a cosy tea ceremony room in Japanese style while in the main areas, minimalism with loft elements and warm notes of Ukrainian art create a special atmosphere that, like a mirror, reflects Sergey’s inner being.

One of client’s main briefs was to provide a physical and flawless interaction between the interior and exterior of the living spaces. Another significant requirement was for there to be a clear view of the whole surrounding environment, regardless of where you may be

standing. Water was yet another important element to be included in the design as the sound and movement of it helps to calm and relax the client who has an exceptionally hectic working life. As an authentic Cypriot, he also wanted to entertain friends regularly and so a barbecue was an extra requirement which had to be incorporated in harmony with the rest of the design concept. The resulting Bali House features a multitude of references to tropical aesthetics both indoors and outdoors without altering the relationship of the home with its surrounding area.

Each floor also has its own private outdoor terrace for offices to use as relaxation spaces and to bring green areas and fresh air to employees. Interior architecture combines modern geometric figures with perforated aluminium sheets, marble flooring and glass walls, all enhanced by concealed lighting. A key feature is the night-time lighting scheme that brings beauty to the building while ensuring public safety. Mermerler Plaza is LEED Gold certified for energy efficiency and sustainability.

The project’s aim is to create a modern lifestyle within a refined architectural complex as well as a new environment for an ecological and healthy way of living in Georgia. Lisi Green Town is the first of the company’s two award-winning projects relating to this new urbanisation. Its design criteria is unique due to the combination of outstanding architecture, quality of building materials and low-rise building. The project’s competitive advantage is based on its main concept – 80/20 – which means that 80% of the development is used for recreational areas, while only 20% is dedicated to residential units. Lisi Green Town

ultimately offers everything for residential, recreational and educational needs just minutes away from the city centre. Lisi Green Tower is a new residential building which will form a new landmark for Lisi Green Town. The 11-storey building contains 32 apartments varying from 85m² to 200m² with spectacular views over the Mtkvari River and the city of Tbilisi, three retail units suitable for small businesses and an underground car park for residents. Its design concept is based on a combination of the local and traditional Georgian ‘veranda’ approach and smart living solutions. By using verandas as spaces for interaction, the anonymous boundaries of a multi-storied apartment complex disappear.

Its award-winning project ‘Bakery Place’ is a state-of-the-art development in a much sought-after location in Battersea. It involves the extraordinary transformation of a Victorian bakery into a collection of 12 stunning properties. These include four mews houses, a gatehouse, six apartments and a breath-taking three-bedroom penthouse, simply labelled The Penthouse. This spacious and luxurious penthouse boasts a Lutron lighting system and automated roof light control, along with top of the range porcelain tiles on the roof terrace. Its kitchen is fully fitted with Miele appliances, a wine fridge and a Quooker tap. From the exterior

advantage of a private terrace to the interior finishes in the living areas, nothing has been overlooked in this stunning setting. The renovation was not without its challenges, one of which was the requirement to remain as close to the original building as possible. Resisting the temptation to remove existing walls, and oddly shaped spaces, the architects have instead used them to create interesting geometric configurations. Glazed partition walls divide living areas and provide the solution to the existing building’s poor levels of natural light. Bakery Place is a world away from the average development. Each home is bespoke, individual and full of interesting details with The Penthouse being undoubtedly the crown jewel of the project.

It is the largest urban transformation project to be realised by a private investor in Turkey and will be built on a prime plot covering 82,000m² of central Istanbul. The project consists of offices, hotel, an ‘open concept’, 550-metre long shopping street and residential housing. The units include 760 flats and 190 residences of various sizes and types ranging from 55m² to 240m² and from studios to 4+1 flats. The most striking feature of the project, which incorporates reflections of Seljuk and Ottoman architecture, will be the revival of the ‘neighbourhood culture’ that every metropolitan community longs for. Rather than high-rise buildings, the design of Piyalepasa

Istanbul differentiates itself with architecture favouring a lower, horizontal silhouette designed by iki design group. With stepped façades, cantilevered balconies, wide eaves, bay windows, decorative pools and inner courtyard system, it is designed to be a nostalgic project that fits the city and friendly neighbourhood.

They now lead a team of stylists and installation specialists, specialising in eye catching, innovative interiors. Royal Wharf Show Home on a new development of 3,300 homes across 40 acres in East London is an award-winning example. Milc was asked to design the interiors of the two-storey, four-bedroom show house to appeal to a young and trendy target market.

Following four different concepts, the client chose ‘Design Junky’ as it fit the brief of being bold, striking and unusual. Its eclectic look incorporated design led pieces that those with an eye for design will recognise as well as using generally budget conscious items with the right look. Making the property feel like a family home was an important element of the design. The client particularly wanted the children’s rooms to have a younger feel to them without appearing too childish. This would allow older families or those without children to envisage living in the property as well. Therefore, the resulting interior was specifically designed to appeal to a wide range of viewers while remaining on trend.

Hotel Royal Savoy in Lausanne, Switzerland is an awardwinning example by the company. One of the city’s ‘grandes dames’, it originally opened in 1906 but had been closed and left in a state of disrepair for several years. The project’s vision was to reinvent the legend, taking design cues from the original building but essentially creating a new hotel. Its overall aim was to retain the spirit of old while fulfilling all 21st century expectations of a luxury hotel experience. Design inspiration has been sought from Hotel Royal Savoy’s beautiful

gardens, its views of Lake Geneva, Art Nouveau heritage and the owner’s private art collection. The original building has six floors plus the ground floor, a lower ground floor and a rooftop bar with amazing views. This has been restored and sensitively modernised with architectural interventions revealing themselves as guests move through the building towards the glazed extension at the rear. From here, an entirely new building becomes apparent, connected to the original building by a discreet, fully glazed walkway. In total, the project achieved 197 guestrooms, introduced an additional ballroom and other event spaces as well as an ultramodern spa, a cigar lounge and a wide choice of wining and dining options.

The company’s award-wining development at Fulmer Drive in Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire is a stunning project of five uber-luxury homes. Often referred to as ‘Mini Hollywood’ due to its exclusivity and many celebrity residents, Gerrards Cross is revered as being one of England’s most desirable residential locations.

The site, following the purchase of three existing properties, offered huge potential and presented the challenge of avoiding overdevelopment. Therefore, the spacing between each of the five plots had to be exactly right to ensure the properties could be given their own unique character. While the site layouts had to satisfy planning requirements, from an aesthetic point of view a visual balance had to be established between each unit. The spacious rooms in each property at Fulmer Drive are filled with natural light from numerous large windows while the interior design makes each one feel contemporary and indulgent. Each home offers a comprehensive Crestron home automation system enabling residents to effortlessly regulate and perfect every aspect of their home environment.

The company now employs 248 people and has a development pipeline of over 4,000 homes. Two of its latest award-winning projects are featured here. Stratosphere in the heart of London’s resurgent Stratford called for an apartment building that would establish its own architectural presence within this new urban landscape. It comprises two linked towers of 36 and 12 storeys respectively. These are connected by a double-height, glazed, 24-hour concierge and reception area. At the basement of the building is a single-storey car park, extensive cycle parking and plant rooms. Retail areas on the ground floor bring an added dimension of use to the site as well as dynamism to the area.


Vibe is a mixed-use development in Dalston, East London which combines new high specification homes and school facilities. Acknowledging the limitations of the small 0.45 hectare site, Telford Homes proposed a radically different approach – to build 101 apartments above the school. Designed for maximum flexibility of space, the primary and nursery school premises also afford the development the ability to provide community space out of school hours and term time. An innovative double-height, open-air play deck has been set between the seven-storeys of apartments and the school, dramatically increasing the amount of outside amenity space. A green rooftop garden and mature ground floor landscaping also increase both outside space and quality of life.

   SORAVIA and ARE DEVELOPMENT based in Vienna, Austria, have presented TrIIIple, an award-winning mixed-use development on the banks of the Danube Canal in Austria. A former customs office, the project’s name is derived from the English word triple meaning ‘three-fold’ and relates to the development’s three main towers. The design by acclaimed architects Henke Schreieck consists of the aforementioned three towers of over 100 metres high comprising apartments, penthouses, lofts and shopping areas plus an approximately 40-metre high office block. Harnessing the power of the symbolic number three to combine modern living, working and leisure, TrIIIple’s aim is perfection, unity and harmony.

Apartments range from 35m² to 165m² with terraces, balconies or loggias and large windows bathing them in natural daylight. A full range of residents’ amenities include a concierge service, rooftop swimming pool, salon with library and a fully equipped event kitchen. The combination of an attractive location in Vienna’s central third district directly on the Danube Canal, landscaped open spaces and the greenery of Vienna’s largest public park, the Prater, as a recreational area right on the doorstep is a key part of TrIIIple’s great success. With 360-degree views across the whole of Vienna, the project offers all the excitement of city living together with the family-friendly, healthy lifestyle of living in the midst of green spaces.

 H  an award-winning real estate agency which was established in Albufeira, Algarve, Southern Portugal in 2012 by Chris White. A British ex-pat, his vision was to further open the Algarve to foreigners and, in doing so, offer exceptional end to end service quality. The company later relocated to Vila Sol, Quarteira. Today, Ideal Homes prides itself on tailoring the property purchasing experience to the buyer. By identifying their needs, the firm ensures that the property investment is a wise, enjoyable and worry-free experience – whether for relocation, holiday, retirement or rental investment. In July, 2016, the company discovered an abandoned plot of land in Almancil. Having recognised its potential, he and his friend Duncan Bannatyne, an expert investor and

Vila Sol

entrepreneur, began the transformation of Apple Tree Lane. The project is comprised of five linked villas within a private cul-de-sac. Landscaped gardens surround the property, including a shared pool and lounging area for residents. The exterior of the property is in keeping with traditional Algarvian design of light coloured walls, manicured gardens and terracotta roofs. Inside, the design features clean lines and airy openness with large windows and sliding doors. Bedrooms have en suite bathrooms and open to balconies with panoramic views. The last available unit sold in July 2017, successfully completing the mission it set out to achieve for both its investors and for the regeneration of the region.

 S  a familyowned and run interior design practice based in Krakow, Poland. The company has won awards for two of its latest projects. ‘Far from City Hustle and Bustle’ is a detached house which was built in the late 20th century in a tranquil location in the south of Poland. Following numerous discussions with the clients, a contemporary mixed style of design was agreed, combining loft, country, classic and English decor elements. Nearly all the existing furnishings were removed and the colour palette was changed completely. Natural colours now feature such as oiled oak, terracotta, greys, whites, blacks and neutral beige. The property’s total transformation from dark, heavy and unorganised living spaces to bright, stylish and highly functional areas has been phenomenal.

‘Tiny Loft in the Centre of Krakow’ is a compact apartment on the second floor of a former industrial building dating from the 1970’s. South-facing, the apartment has windows opening on to a small green square at the front of the building. The owner is a young, artistic woman who relishes nonconventional ideas. With this in mind and to utilise the space efficiently, Mikolajska Studio designed a raised loft area accessed by spacesaving samba stairs. This innovative restructuring has increased the living area by 20m², resulting in a total of 60m² of functional space. Downstairs is a living room with kitchen annexe, a bathroom and study with walk-in wardrobe. At mezzanine level is a bedroom, small cloakroom with washbasin, a second walk-in wardrobe and an office nook.

The firm traces its history back to 1818, when it launched as Edmund Cude, and has remained in family ownership for two centuries. It now has over 100 employees across 18 London offices but its founding principles of integrity, approachability and reliability remain exactly the same. Over 1,000 landlords and sellers were surveyed in December 2014 before a major project was undertaken to rebrand Edmund Cude & Booth to the single name of Portico. Through this extensive research, the company

was able to clearly identify its brand values and this informed every element of the rebrand. The process began in 2015 and by 2017 all offices were rebranded. A completely new creative design was established, completely updating all marketing communications and offices as well as introducing a new fleet of branded cars. The main objective was to create a single cohesive brand across all offices but additionally, it was to develop a new way of working along with a whole new set of services. These are supported by Portico’s award-winning website which generates 70,000 visits a month. Along with active social media channels and online PR, Portico effectively markets properties to attract the right buyers.

 F T which dominates the heart of the Moscow International Business Center has become an award-winning symbol of modern Moscow. It is the tallest building in Europe and comprises a complex of two skyscrapers – West and East – built on a single, six-storey podium. The 62-storey West tower is 243 metres high whilst the East tower has 97-storeys and rises 374 metres above the ground. The best professionals from around the world have been involved in the creation of this unique high-rise complex. They include German architects, US engineers, Turkish builders, Australian façade cleaning system developers and German and Chinese specialists in state-of-the-art glazing systems. Throughout the creation of this one-of-a-kind architectural project, numerous innovative

ideas, ultra-modern technologies and the highest quality materials were implemented, applied and used. The complex accommodates shopping arcades, offices, residential apartments and penthouses. During the design stage it was decided that the office block would be separated from the residential block so that, despite the proportions of the building, the tenants could enjoy maximum privacy. The Federation Tower is fully lined with glass as, for the first time in Russia, the façade has been constructed using the technology of structural glazing with double-glazed windows filled with argon. The density of the glass makes it almost as heat resistant as a brick wall and all windows are panoramic with no need for bars or handrails to mar the magnificent views of the city, sunrise and sunset.

Its awardwinning project Mesa Koza 66 is an iconic and eye-catching, 35-storey high residential complex in Ankara. Designed by A Tasarim Mimarlik, it provides a total of 30,000m² of residential floor space and is part of a fabric of low and high-rise buildings in the capital. The housing complex aims to offer a comfortable and peaceful lifestyle to its residents by integrating innovations in building technology. While the tower offers more compact and classical solutions, the ninestorey horizontal block with studio apartments, galleries and interior spaces, provides a more flexible living environment. Gardens and

terraces in these units add further lifestyle benefits to residents as these spaces become increasingly scarce in the city centre. Overlooking the cityscape, the tower with its transparent façades framed in toned-down contours offers residents a vast, panoramic view of Ankara. Each room within the vertical block has a unique city view with a narrow balcony running along its entire length. This creates a strong visual connection between the high-rise apartments and the city. A wide range of amenities including an indoor swimming pool and a fitness centre are housed between the two blocks enabling easy access for residents. This social centre is integrated with the patio which is vibrant both night and day and plays a mediating role between the different living environments.

Mood Works-Dorota Kuć & Karina Snuszka Emilii Plater 27 (at Wspólna str.) 00-688 Warsaw, Poland

   years ago, Mood Works is a renowned interior design practice based in Warsaw, Poland. It is run by Karina Snuszka and Dorota Kuć who both like to work with young artists, incorporating art into each interior at every opportunity. Mood Works’ award-winning interior design is for the new Warsaw headquarters of Linklaters, a well-known law firm. The brief was to feature bespoke solutions highlighting the prestige of the legal profession and corporate ambitions of the company. The client wanted to create a timeless, elegant and calm ambience for the office space and its employees. Natural materials, neutral colours and art all combine to provide a non-aggressive interior which has a positive impact on staff.

Special emphasis was placed on the reception area, where the company and its values are reflected in all elements such as furniture, lighting and art. Areas were also created for both individual and team work including seclude and quiet space to read and analyse and public space for socialising and team building. Due to the specifics of the work carried out in the office, the space has been divided into comfortable single, double and triple rooms with separate offices for the partners. The cafeteria, which occupies the most attractive spot overlooking the city, is a place where employees can not only dine but also spontaneously organise informal meetings. Special attention has also been given to the conference rooms, all with beautiful views of Warsaw.
