WELCOME

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the first edition of IP&T+ magazine! Throughout the conception and planning process of this edition, I kept being struck by the deeply personal nature of design – from our homes, to our workplaces, to the buildings that make up our cities. Design impacts every part of our lives, and our environment affects how we feel and how we live our lives.

In this edition, we exhibit multiple Award-winning properties from across the globe, from Mexico to Singapore to Australia, and explore the innovative ways they use design to make an impact. The staggering Century Spire is a new edition to the Philippine skyline, while R.Evolution’s Bac de Roda challenges the boundaries between workplaces and the natural world. Projects like these demonstrate the impact that design has not only on our productivity, but on our physical and mental wellbeing as well. Our Industry News section uncovers the latest advancements in the property and design world, presenting trend predictions for the following year as well as up and coming developments to keep an eye out for.

While researching for our Interiors & Lifestyle section, it became apparent that people are choosing to invest in statement pieces for their homes and are regularly focused on quality. With this in mind, we have highlighted products that are testament to the unique designs that underscore residential living.

Finally, we turn to the USA to showcase the projects of several cutting-edge architects and interior designers, discovering how their styles are driving the trends in home and commercial design and observing a resurgence in bold colour and striking patterns that embody the creative personalities they represent.

Please enjoy perusing through this shiny new edition and, as you read, I hope you’ll come to agree with me that design really does have the potential to change lives.

Throughout this magazine, you will come across this symbol that highlights the participants and winners of the International Property Awards. Keep an eye out as you browse through the pages of this magazine where you will be able to identify and learn more about the most innovative and successful players in the property industry.

English EXCELLENCE

Multi-award winners Cranberryhome credit their success to a skillful blend of tradition and modernity.

Following their launch in 2014, English interior design firm Cranberryhome have made a name for themselves in the UK property sector for their attractive, functional projects that are designed bespoke for each client.

Headed by design director and founder Hugo Fleming, Cranberryhome has been on a consistent path of organic growth since their inception. In 2018 they formed a partnership with estate agencies Fine & Country and Taylor Walsh to act as their styling and staging agency. They have received award recognition from BUILD Real Estate & Property Awards, the Best of Houzz awards, Global Business Insight awards, the Prestige awards and most recently for the second year running, the International Property Awards. The root of their success is credited to their philosophy of providing cost-effective design that incorporates modern ideas and concepts but with a traditional heritage.

The range of projects undertaken by Cranberryhome range from custom kitchens and unique bathrooms, to hallways and children’s playrooms. Particularly over recent years, Cranberryhome have become increasingly known for more bespoke projects such as furniture, walk-in wardrobes, bar design, spa bathrooms and unique kitchens. They have great relationships with

high end suppliers such as Porta Romana, Designers Guild, Visual Comfort and Little Greene among others and frequently enlist local bespoke furniture makers and specialist finishing contractors for plastering techniques, flooring and lighting options.

Through the success they’ve generated from their outstanding design projects and their many award wins, Cranberryhome have managed to extend their clientele beyond the British Isles, attracting overseas clients and facilitating their design dreams for their properties in South East England. To date, they have assisted clients from as far as Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, Canada and South Africa.

Following a large expansion of operations in 2023, the future looks bright for Cranberryhome, and they plan to keep scaling as the demand for their superb services continues to grow.

MagicMALDIVES in the

Atoll Estates to launch Zamani Islands: the Maldives’ first truly integrated resort, with private estates and mansions for residential purchase.

Atoll Estates has announced the development of Zamani Islands, a lifestyle destination in the Maldives’ South Malé Atoll, including the country’s first superyacht marina and yacht club. Launching its first phase in Spring 2026, this ground-breaking destination will redefine luxury and sustainability in the real estate and hospitality sphere.

Extending to 5km in a natural lagoon and located only 21 nautical miles from the main international airport, Zamani Islands will make up three resorts spread across eight islands, designed in partnership with resort master planner Killa Design. Zamani Islands aims to be the first resort in the Maldives powered completely by clean, renewable energy.

Atoll Estates founders Amit Majumder and Dmitry Bourtov have stated that “it was our intention from the outset to conceive a resort with sustainability truly at its heart that will do good for both people and place. Zamani Islands will set new standards for a lifestyle destination both within the Maldives and globally. We are redefining what is possible in the Maldives whilst respecting the unique natural environment of the setting: creating a harmony between nature and luxury.”

The first phase will launch a collection of private estates and mansions, with 14 available for residential purchase off-plan. Developed with the utmost attention to detail, the private beach front residences offer between four to eight bedrooms,

multiple private pools across different levels, a screening room, personal spa and wellness area as well as dedicated fitness and game spaces. There will be a personal butler service and included with each residence is a private berth within the Maldives’ inaugural superyacht marina with fullservice facilities.

Additionally, owners of Zamani Islands will receive unrestricted access to the resorts, including three spas – one of which will be the first medical spa in the Maldives. The delights don’t finish there, as Zamani Islands will offer an exceptional gastronomic experience across 28 venues, the crown jewel of which will be the Maldives’ largest underwater restaurant.

Dream AMERICAN the

In this special feature, we journey across the United States of America discovering the projects of some of the country’s most talented architects and designers currently working.

The influence of traditional American style architecture is apparent in works by studios such as Haver & Skolnick and Barker Architecture Studio, both of whom draw on classic American and European elements to seamlessly merge their projects into the surrounding environment, all whilst updating their buildings for the modern era.

This drive for the future is similarly echoed by architects Phil Kean Design Group and Studio Gang, whose designs seek to challenge pre-existing ideas of public architecture.

Designers such as Onyx & Oak Interior Design, En Masse Architecture & Design and Studio Sven report seeing a re-emergence of colour, patterns and the desire for statement pieces. Lauren Svenstrup of Studio Sven comments that, “We have always embraced the bold, and have never shied away from the moodier hues. It is refreshing to see the masses embrace this design direction again.”

Indeed, a new design direction that places personality as the central focus seems to be the future, as embodied by R/terior Studio, which uses loud colours and charming designs to reflect thier

clients’ sense of self. Likewise, Jessica Helgerson Interior Design and Brad Ramsey Interiors choose to fully embrace their clients’ lifestyles, often re-designing floor layouts to optimise the usable space.

These architects and designers from all across the United States are driving the trends in residential and commercial design, pushing boundaries and re-shaping the future of property design in the Land of Opportunity. Read on to discover more…

BERGEN STREET BROWNSTONE

Curves, stone and a rich colour palette were the primary ingredients used to utterly transform this New York home.

ALEXANDRA BARKER

Principal, Leed AP

BAAO Barker

Architecture Office www.baaostudio.com

In a historic Brooklyn townhouse, Alexandra Barker of BAAO Barker Architecture Office used deep colours and sculptural elements to define and maximise spaces, designing a home that met the needs of a social family of three.

Barker Architecture Office was inspired by the muted neutral colours found in stone for the additional colour palette, and chose to bring in soft curves wherever possible, which acted as a counterpoint to the traditional boxiness of brownstone buildings.

The details start from the front door, where a custom asymmetrical mirror echoes the arched door of the entryway, which is cloaked in a rich green paint from Farrow

& Ball. The curved transitions and textural details continue throughout the property from the front to the back. The soft curving furniture chosen by BAAO reflect the harder textural curves created by the marble, wood and plaster, building a unique, whimsical yet practical structure to the property.

Framing the view toward the kitchen and rear steel window wall is a deep fluted plaster arch with a bar area lit by vintage French smoked glass sconces. Soft mushroom shades were chosen for the kitchen, contrasting gently with the custom Calacatta vagli viola marble countertops and the pale oak dining table by Maiden Home.

The atmospheric media room, painted a rich aubergine, is flanked by a marbled bar area lit by Volker Haug sconces.

The primary suite is painted a gentle lavender grey and features stained oak elements. Continuing the same colour scheme, the primary bathroom uses a mixture of soft lavender walls and a green onyx and rosa aurora macchia vecchia shower to produce a calming oasis. The freestanding bathtub is positioned to look out over the garden, and the stained oak vanity is covered with gleaming onyx.

A SERENE SANCTUARY

Calming neutral colours and treasured family keepsakes create the soul of this inviting family home.

This 5,157 square-foot new build was built for a Nashville-based music manager with a growing family of grandchildren. Having a previous home in Alys Beach, the family outgrew it and wanted something to better fit the needs of their expanding family.

The home features four bedrooms, four and a half baths, a plunge pool perfect for indoor-outdoor living, two garages, a covered porch and a second-level pergola.

Brad, of Brad Ramsey Interiors, stuck with a neutral colour palette of soft whites and clean, modern lines, taking cues from nature while blending existing items of the family’s African tribal collection; one-of-a-kind collectables from family vacations. The living room features a shellstone fireplace, white coffered ceilings, a

custom carved Saladino furniture, round wooden table by Four Hands, and additional Palecek seating. To create a sense of warmth, Brad used textural Mark Alexander wallpaper in the powder bathroom. The room also features a floating Calacatta marble vanity. In the kitchen, the cabinetry and ceiling planks were whitewashed to give the room a clean and warm vibe, pairing beautifully with the warm oak accents of the island base and kitchen door.

Upstairs, the second-story stairwell features a striking black iron and alabaster pendent by Ralph Lauren, which pairs graciously with the natural oak stair rails.

Finally, designed as a retreat for the owners, the primary bedroom employs a neutral colour palette to create a calming oasis.

CO LO U R in COLORADO

EVEN IN THE FACE OF POTENTIAL DISASTER, ONYX & OAK INTERIORS FOUND THE OPPORTUNITY TO BUILD ON WHAT THEY HAD ALREADY ACCOMPLISHED FOR A RESULT EVEN BETTER THAN BEFORE.

FELICIA BUSHMAN & KRISTIN LOSEY

Co-Founders & Principal Interior Designers

Onyx & Oak Interiors

www.onyxandoakinteriordesign.com

alifornia-based interior designers Kristin Losey and Felicia Bushman of Onyx & Oak Interiors had their work cut for them after a fire devasted the Boulder, Colorado property on which they were weeks from finishing renovations.

The majority of the work needed to be re-done, but as luck would have it, damage to the drywall allowed for the discovery of the building’s original red brick walls, which fit perfectly alongside the bright and bold colours that that the client was calling for.

Luckily left unscathed by the fire, beautiful handpainted wallpaper lines the upstairs bedroom, and classic patterned fabrics are used to great effect throughout the home.

Kristin and Felicia chose antiques and vintageinspired furnishings for the project, inspired by the owners love of all things old and new, resulting

in a home that feels like a true sanctuary. In the kitchen, hand-painted blue and white tile mixes with the intricate parquet floors to fill the room with character, and the metallic elements from the gold light fixtures and custom copper hood bring warmth into the space.

Felicia states: “Our client gave us the freedom to think outside the box and loved seeing new and unexpected ideas. We wanted to be respectful of both the home’s architecture and historic charm and of its owner’s lifestyle and aesthetic.”

As part of this, Kristin and Felicia chose to centre the decorations around the owner’s personal art collection, which adorns every wall of the property, and draws out even further the personality of a home already bursting with character.

AN EVOLUTION OF IDENTITY

ore than ten years since the MB&F M.A.D.Gallery first opened its doors on Geneva’s Rue Verdaine in 2011, MB&F are launching a new interior design and architectural identity for its M.A.D.Galleries.

“I really wanted to elevate the gallery to be at the level of the art pieces,” Said MB&F founder Maximilian Büsser. “I wanted to bring a sense of dignity and importance to the artists.”

The galleries were originally created in 2011 in order to situate their Horological and Legacy Machines in appropriate context, and have since taken off and grown organically. In collaboration with Voltige Design & Architecture, a highly experienced team with offices in Geneva and Lausanne, MB&F have redefined their spaces, starting with their largest gallery, located in the famous Dubai Mall.

The fresh identity is also applied to the growing number of MB&F shop-in-shops at the brand’s retail partners around the world – such as the MB&F corner at PMT-The Hour Glass in Bangkok – as well as a new retail format dubbed ‘MB&F Lab’.

The visual marker of a giant reflective lens was used as the focal point for the new design, a theme mirrored by the domed display cases specially made for the MB&F Machines. The custom furniture acts as the third key element of the redesign, taking its inspiration from the furniture craftsmen of the 50s and 60s. The lighting was the last element noticed by visitors, but the most important.

Voltige installed a state-of-the-art system combining exhibition track lighting, allowing

surgical precision for the art pieces and ensuring that the atmosphere and light intensity are always right, no matter day or night.

Where the previous M.A.D.Gallery interior design could be slightly overwhelming, Voltige and MB&F have paid particular attention to creating a discovery path through the space, starting with the most impressive artworks and leading to the smaller, more affordable pieces at the rear. Each domain has its own clearly defined space, and MB&F has its own space at the centre of the gallery.
