Welcome!

Celebrating a love of Alpine climes and beautiful properties to boot, Austria, France and Switzerland are on our radar as countries with the best snow conditions. Despite the cold temperatures, each location thrives on providing warm hospitality.

Austria has the outstanding Tyrol and Salzburg with their feel-good modern infrastructure, while those who venture to France tend to purchase their properties in Megeve and Chamomix. Let’s not forget Switzerland with its world-famous ski regions in the Alps. Popular locations here tend to be Verbier, St Moritz and Gstaad. Although it will be hard to decide on where to reside, rest assured that all three locations will forever be associated with luxury thanks to their top-class facilities and quality of life.

We jet across the Atlantic Ocean to two other glamorous international property hotspots: New York and Florida. A state of dazzling diversity, NYC has no restrictions for foreign buyers, so you can easily purchase a condo or townhouse before heading out to one of the many fantastic restaurants such as Carbone and Via Carota.

On the other hand, beautiful beaches, rustling mangroves and stand-out homes in Southeast and Southwest Florida are what draws property investors to the state. Despite the di erences between the two states, both have long been sought-after locations to call home.

Indelibly tied to multiculturalism, we turn our heads to London, more speci cally Mayfair. If there’s a cuisine you’ve left to experience, an upmarket hotel that someone has raved about or an activity you’ve always dreamed of doing, chances are it will happen here. Goodbye, inhibitions; hello, Mayfair.

BISHOP DESIGN

A proje that’s anyth g but ord ary

In 2018, Bishop Design were assigned their biggest project to date: a 75-storey hotel to be operated by renowned hospitality firm SBE. Located in the heart of Dubai’s Downtown district, the debut of the SLS brand in 2019 brought a playful yet unmatched glamour to the region. The design comprises 254 hotel rooms, 321 residences, Ciel Spa, Carna steakhouse by Dario Cecchini, Italian restaurant F'ilia – a fully female-run establishment recently honoured with a Michelin Bib Gourmand –and rooftop spot Privilege complete with a dedicated nightclub and two infinity pools on the 75th floor.

The design ideology for the establishment revolved around revolutionising the SLS brand in conjunction with the local demographic by marrying contemporary elements with the natural aesthetic of Dubai. From the onset guests are immersed in luxury and their SLS journey unfolds as they travel through the venue. Although each area holds its own unique identity,

sophisticated elements such as rose gold copper contrasts against more unrefined, raw finishes and surfaces with flippant accessories delivering a playful touch, an overall unconventional perception of luxury is presented coherent to both the brand and region's elite clientele.

Earlier this year Bishop Design were appointed to create an unparalleled dining experience which paid homage to Italian heritage and the local demographic of Dubai through interior styling. Belcanto, which translates to “Beautiful Song” not only aligns with the sophistication of both regions but is a modern rendition of a classic Italian opera house. Dim lighting coupled with whimsical accessories and scarlet red accents shape the venue's demeanour. A classic Italian love affair, between cuisine and entertainment, the sophisticated use of lighting and materials inspires desire within the space and seduces guests into an unforgettable experience.

CAFFE LATTE

Luxury modern house Dubai

This home has been brilliantly decorated with high quality materials. The bathroom in particular is dressed in black and white marble to give a glamorous and lavish effect. Paired with gold accents, it makes for an extremely noticeable area in the home. Grey has become a steadfast favourite for decorating, in any room. Thanks to its versatility grey is considered to be a timeless shade that never goes out of style, making it a fashionable choice for creating chic bedrooms, as can be seen in the master bedroom of this home. Layering a variety of elements throughout has been key to creating a cosy space guests will love.

The brief for this year-long project was to create a luxe but comfortable home for a growing British expat family. For the ground and upper levels, clean-lined modern furniture and a neutral palette were chosen to reflect the villa’s contemporary architecture. For the daylight basement level, a traditional style was introduced with button-tufted leather ottomans, wood panelling and a handsome pool table. The project’s scope ranged from concept design and visualisation to custom furniture creation, design development and full project management.

Opulent

Mayfa

Mayfair has long been synonymous with exclusivity, and is defined by upmarket hotels, fine dining and luxury shopping.

Charlie Gibson, Managing Director for Oliver Bernard Private sums up the area even better… “Sandwiched between a beautiful Royal Park, the hustle and bustle of Soho and the Kings Home at Buckingham Palace, with its terracotta streets, 5* hotels (7* soon to arrive in Grosvenor Square) and abundance of Michelin-starred restaurants and private members clubs, there is something for everyone.”

Guy Bradshaw, managing director for UK Sotheby’s International Realty adds: “Mayfair has been one of the most robust postcodes in prime central London over the last decade. These new schemes attract ‘global citizens’ who are less bothered about short term ‘fluctuations’ or political uncertainty, as on a global scale the UK is still very attractive and of course, the weakening of the currency helps to sustain this. The epicentre of Mayfair is Mount Street, which seems to get ever more ‘high end’, and the streets surrounding it remain the most popular.”

Charlie continues: “People imagine Mayfair as a microclimate for opulent freehold mansions with garden courtyards and connecting mews big enough to park a Rolls-Royce Phantom, replacing the traditional horse and cart of which they were originally purposed. This is still the case for a handful of houses predominantly located on either Hill Street, Charles Street or South Street, but generally speaking that’s sadly a thing of the past with a number of freeholds split up into flats to accommodate the growing need for housing, even in Mayfair.”

“Historically, Mayfair would have been weighted in favour of large houses,” says Simon Walker, Director of Sales for Caudwell. “However, in more recent times there has been the introduction of a wide range of residences and predominantly larger apartments. Serviced apartment buildings in partnership with high-end brands and providers are also becoming increasingly prevalent.”

Claire Reynolds, Head of Savills, Mayfair office weighs in on Mayfair’s property types: “Mayfair has it all when it comes to the types of property available - a real blend with varying architecture, from Georgian to brand new developments. You can find some of the best trophy townhouses in London on the likes of Charles Street, charming mews houses like those on Hays Mews, and lateral apartments in both period conversions and newer developments like Burlington Gate.

“A trophy townhouse can offer up to 20,000 sq. ft. of space with garaging for multiple cars, a courtyard garden and terracing, indoor pool, lift and staff accommodation. The offering of branded residences such as Twenty Grosvenor Square - a Four Seasons serviced residence - are also on the rise

here, where buyers at the top end of the market can enjoy the benefits of world class hotel services including 24-hour concierge and security, a pool, spa, gym, cinema and a private dining room. There’s something for everyone essentially, with large and smaller properties to suit your lifestyle and the amount of time you spend in your home. What they all have in common is that the properties here in Mayfair are of some of the highest calibre in the world.”

In terms of prices, Charlie says “Entry level apartments in Mayfair are in and around Shepherd’s Market, a vibrant little square in the heart of Mayfair. You can pick up a one-bedroom unmodernised flat for around £700K. At the other end of the spectrum, houses go for up to £150 million. As a general rule for buying in Mayfair, if you can buy under £2000 per sq. ft.

An a uent central London neighbourhood with plenty of history
london
“Mayfair has been one of the most robust post codes in prime central London over the last decade”.
Charlie Gibson Managing Director Oliver Bernard Private Simon Walker Director of Sales Caudwell Guy Bradshaw Managing Director UKSotheby’s International Realty

it’s largely speaking, a good buy. If you need amenities, the majority of new build apartments start at £5500 per sq. ft., meaning a two-bedroom apartment in a typical new build scheme will cost you £10 million.

“Attractions in Mayfair vary; the obvious ones are the spectacular stores of Bond Street, Michelin star restaurants such as Murano and Sketch and the world-renowned hotels such as the Connaught and Claridge’s, but it’s interesting to observe how these attractions change as you become a resident in Mayfair. You see locals opting for

laid back family restaurants such as Delfino and Caffe Inn instead of the glamour of Michelin stars. Having been in the Mount Street Cigar shop, often on the way back from Hedonism where everyone likes to buy their tipple, you will often see local residents enjoying the tranquillity and privacy of Mount Street Gardens rather than the raz of the private members clubs. If you want to understand all the shenanigans going on within government, your best bet is Wiltons on Jermyn Street where you can overhear Kwasi Kwarteng joke about the forthcomings of his brief cabinet role.”

The recent changes in Westminster’s planning policy will dictate the future of residential property in Mayfair, says Simon. “This legislation means that large-scale new build units will be a thing of the past, so that smaller and more affordable units will be more commonplace.

“Mayfair has historically been seen as a safe option for medium and long-term investment and the utmost desirable place to live. This ‘super prime’ London neighbourhood is incredibly resilient to large price fluctuations and has experienced steady and consistent growth over the years”.

Great Scotland Yard Hotel

Famously the headquarters of the Metropolitan Police, Great Scotland Yard Hotel offers an unforgettable escape within a historic site with a story to tell.

Sitting around the corner from Trafalgar Square and just off Whitehall this hotel is the Hyatt’s first Unbound Collection property in the UK. Enveloped in red brick and Portland stone, the front of this hotel embodies all the old-school charm, splendour and English eccentricity that you would expect of a historic, five-star hotel.

Punctuated with massive green doors, guests are greeted to beautiful Edwardian-inspired hues and patterns. Food and drink choices are a plenty with The Parlour transporting guests to the nineteenth century West Indies. Guests can enjoy afternoon tea, including tea-based cocktails surrounded by tropical landscapes and wicker furniture.

Opposite The Parlour, and taking interiors to new heights, you’ll find The 40 Elephants. Named after London’s notorious Girl Gang

who came from Elephant & Castle and menaced the city over three centuries, the bar is naturally lit by a skylight which houses a breathtaking chandelier composed of a series of broken glass. Here you can enjoy inventive and unusual drinks with garnishes that are truly flamboyant and fun.

Each of the 152 rooms has been thoughtfully and individually designed to help guests feel even more in tune with the hotel’s historic background. What they all share is enabling guests to have a luxurious and unforgettable experience.

Colonel Saab

In the heart of Holborn, Colonel Saab shines as an example of hospitality and superb cooking. Its ethos is inspired by traditional Indian cuisine with a twist, and the personal memories and family history of owner Roop Partap Choudhary. Affectionately expressed as a ‘love letter’ to Roop’s family and India, the new meticulously-crafted tasting menu is in honour of his mother.

Chef Sohan Bhandari helms the kitchen where he creates the £75 path-breaking menu featuring finessed, unmistakable and inventive flavours – it’s like poetry on a plate. Diners get to choose a wine, Champagne, vodka, whisky or gin for carefully curated cocktails to pair with each of the six courses, which include chilli mogo – crispy-fried cassava in tangy, soy tamarind –sarsoi ajwaini fish tikka – mustard and carom marinated fillet – lotus stem koftas and malpua waffles laced with rabri and sprinkled in rose petals.

Meanwhile, the jaw-dropping interior blends the past and present to create a nostalgic-inducing atmosphere. Enter through a grand pure silver door from a Gujarat temple and admire the canopy of ornate chandeliers from Firozabad hung high above the dining area. Experience a one-of-a-kind journey through copious amounts of artworks that pay homage to Choudhary’s travels across India with his mother, Mrs Binny Choudhary and father, Colonel Manbeer.

Overall, the atmosphere here is certainly one for the books with the gentle clink of glasses, the low hum of conversation, the soft lights and appetite-whetting scents that will make anyone come back for more.

Minimalism is the name of the design game and Eastway’s use of dark wood, pine green columns and brown leather chairs creates a wholly elegant and functional setting, created with the customers’ comfort in mind.

To conclude, Eastway Brasserie is a cosy and relaxed venue with an appetising menu. It’s truly a place to celebrate, indulge and be merry.

Building and designing a structure requires imagination, ingenuity, and craftsmanship that are all seen in this villa

This beautiful villa , located in the Southern German university town of Heidelberg is defined by simplicity and its comprehensive use of natural stone, inside and out.

Winner of the European Property Award for Architecture, Single Residence Germany, the house is a monolithic cube which rises high above the river in the picturesque Neckar valley. The house façade features black slate from the German Mosel valley, a material used for centuries in German castles and churches. Window banks are made of matte finish black granite, while the path from street level to the house and its spacious terraces are covered with large format red sandstone slaps.

The protruding front cantilever terrace features a frameless glass railing, while large triple glazed floor-toceiling windows offer stunning views over the river valley. Three-metre-high ceilings on both floors contribute to the airy, spacious feeling of the interior.

The ground floor layout includes an entrance hall, stairwell, service space and an open plan living, sitting, dining and kitchen area looking out to a wraparound red sandstone covered terrace. The upper floor contains four bedrooms, bathrooms, a stairwell and a walk-in wardrobe. The two large bedrooms facing the river both have direct access to a large master bathroom with two cubic Carrara marble wash basins, oversized bathtub, spacious rainshower and unobstructed river valley views.

The design incorporates carbon neutrality including super insulation, motorised external shading jalousies, ventilation system with HEPA filters and heat recovery, and LED lightening. Solar panels on the roof, a heat pump and Tesla Powerwall battery makes the house largely energy independent of the electricity grid.

HALL FAME of

Regal residences once occupied by famous A-listers

The former Stylistic Creator for Christian Dior, Gianfranco Ferrè, planned to transform this prestigious property into a representative villa for his global clientele.

Located on the shores of Lake Maggiore with gorgeous panoramic views, this historic residence was built between the late 19th and early 20th century, and is a perfect spot for a bespoke holiday home or investment. The elegant villa includes the main villa, two cottages, 12,000m2 of wooded land, and 260m2 of private beach. For the classic depiction of a European castle, it has two symmetrical corner turrets and central square tower.

Where land meets water

September 2022 saw the launch of Peninsula Gardens, the next chapter of London’s rapidly growing Greenwich Peninsula district in Zone 2. Anticipation for the new address has seen 94% of the first phase of apartments sold over the opening weekend in September, with Knight Dragon now bringing forward a limited collection of homes from a future phase to meet the continued high demand.

Peninsula Gardens encompasses a family of four characterful buildings, just

moments from the River Thames and from the Peninsula’s Central Park, yet easily connected to the buzz of the wider city.

Combining character and craftsmanship, homes take inspiration from their river and park surroundings, and have been designed to make the most of the panoramic views, with floor-to-ceiling windows and organic finishes, colours and materials throughout.

The central feature of the Black Bay Bronze model is its 43mm bronze case, an aesthetic reference to the brass used in old ships and other diving equipment. This "living" metal, a high-performance aluminium-copper alloy used particularly in naval engineering for submerged parts that need to be highly resistant to corrosion, will produce a subtle, unique patina on every watch case, based on the wearer's habits. The combination of a slate-grey dial, shaded from the exterior to the centre, and a bezel coupled with gold accents found on the hands and hour markers, completes the model's aesthetics.

he Master Hybris Artistica Calibre 945 is one of the most complex movements in Jaeger-LeCoultre’s extensive portfolio. The company introduces grisaille enamel to its repertoire for the first time. A painterly technique that originated in 16th-century France, grisaille enamel is unique in creating a chiaroscuro effect, with an illusion of threedimensionality created by half-tones and shading. Thanks to this rarefied technique, the dials of the Master Hybris Artistica Calibre 945 depict with utmost artistry the sky that we see above us at night. The dials are constructed on multiple levels, dominated by a domed structure that also wraps around the cosmotourbillon, while on the domed celestial disc, midnight-blue grisaille enamel and a transferred star map amplify the visual connection to the cosmos.

lysse Nardin’s technical teams have succeeded spectacularly in taking the three-dimensional effect to the limit. The inclined double oscillator on the Freak S is a premiere, the prime signature of new UN-251 Manufacture movement. Positioned on distinct planes as if on two launching pads, the two XXL silicium balance-wheels with inertiablocks are linked by a differential, which draws the average of their rates. Assembled on two plans inclined at 20° one from another, they are linked by a bridge in rose gold in the form of a rocket’s wing. Siamese, in a rhythmic tango, they give the impression of two turboprops beating time at a frequency of 2.5 Hz – reinforcing the timepiece’s 3D effect and space inspiration. The inclined double oscillator and its differential enable improved regulation of the movement’s running rate. The micromechanical machinery featured beneath the crystal of the Freak S is nothing other than a carousel with an autonomy of 72 hours, with no hands, dial, or crown. The Freak indicates the time thanks to the rotation of its movement, and its two bridges rotate around the centre. They indicate the hours and minutes, respectively. An arrow covered with Super-LumiNova® shows the hour while the nose cone of the rocket, which bears the balance-wheels and the escapement, indicates the minutes. In the course of its 60-minute revolution, the movement pivots on its central axis inside a high-tech case with a sapphire crystal.

EDWARD HOPPER’S

New York

Mention Edward Hopper and night-time images of gas stations and American diners spring to mind. While they are certainly iconic and typical of Hopper, much of his work is rather less well known. The Whitney Museum sets that right with a major new exhibition documenting Hopper's love affair with the Big Apple.

New York was “the American city that I know best and like most,” said Hopper, who lived here from 1908–67. These six decades saw endless development in the metropolis and a booming population. Yet Hopper's paintings are strangely depopulated, while nowhere do we see landmark sites such as the Empire State Building or Statue of Liberty. The impression Hopper's obscure corners, empty squares and bare factories leave is one of intensely personal dreamscapes, those unsettling places that take root in the imagination at night.

As a child, Hopper's family had often taken him on visits to New York from their nearby home in Nyack. On Broadway he was introduced to the theatre, which

offered so much in the way of painterly subject matter to so many artists. His lifelong love of the theatre as well as cinema, reflected here in several works, was shared by his wife Josephine Nivison and the young couple often visited the latest shows after they settled in New York for good.

Hopper had begun life as a commercial illustrator but he ended his days lauded as among the greats of American painters – his 1950 retrospective at the Whitney Museum was warmly received and Life magazine anointed him the “major American artist of the century.” By exploring the artist’s work through the lens of New York, the exhibition offers a fresh take on this formidable figure.

Until 5th

Paul Klee

and the Secrets of Nature

This exhibition of works by the well-known Paul Klee has a singularly unusual element – it includes a number of female artist whose careers were "silenced by the official account of the history of art" – in other words, not being men, their work was ignored.

To set this right a selection of works by Gabriele Münter, Emma Kunz, and Maruja Mallo are squeezed in the general framework of Klee and Nature. An installation by Sandra Knecht rounds off the exhibition's chronological tour of Klee's life.

JAINISM

The first exhibition for 50 years in Switzerland devoted to Jainism is a curious affair which mingles masterpieces of art with talks and films about the subject. Jainism as a religion has never 'caught on' in the West in the same way as Buddhism has done. This show tells us why. The core ethical values which underpin the religion – including nonviolence and universal tolerance – are not the problem. It is the renunciation of material possessions that conflicts with the Western way of life in the 21st century. Yet Jains still operate in all areas of life, including business and here at the Rietberg films and interviews document Jains from all spheres of life; religious leader as well as laypersons active in business, culture, and politics.

Until 30th April at the Rietberg Museum, Zurich, Switzerland

Untitled (Alpine Landscape). | c. 1932. Gouache on paper | Bildarchiv, Bern

The show examines among other things the impact of the First World War on the German Swiss artist, plus his increasingly theoretical approach to art thanks to his years as a teacher at the Bauhaus.

There are more than 200 pieces, among which are paintings, drawings, documents and pedagogic sketchbooks in which we find the often misquoted advice to students to "take a line for a walk. "

As to nature, like most artists Klee found it an endless source of inspiration and a refuge from the ills of modern industrial life and the horrors of the First War when he was conscripted into the military. He died just after the start of the next great conflict in 1940, writing in his own epitaph to say he was: "Slightly closer to the heart of creation than usual, but still not close enough."

Until 12th February at the Fundació Joan Miró, Barcelona, Spain

Africa Fashion

This wide ranging exhibition at the V&A views a continent through the lens of its fashion, using textiles, clothes, design, film and photography from the 1960s to the present day. It is a marvellous journey through materials both natural and synthetic, including cottons, beads, metal, silk ribbons, raffia, grasses, mud and organzaproving that there is nothing African textile artists cannot fashion into a useful – or sometimes purely ornamental – outfit. If there is a black power message, it's quite muted; we are not expected to confront the ills of colonialism directly, more to admire the inventiveness that defied it. The work of Bubu Ogisi, who founded the women's wear brand IAMSIGO, is an example. Her hand crafted pieces are helping preserve ancient techniques while also promoting the use of ecologically sustainable materials.

There's also a nice nod to the many indigenous and anonymous artists of Africa, with a glass case called the Unnamed Dressmaker in which classic weavings such as the kente cloth find a place.

DENIS WIRTH-MILLER: Landscapes & Beasts

Denis Wirth-Miller's bleak but wonderful landscapes must be seen in the flesh, and what a story unfolds as we enter the world of reed beds and marshes on show at Firstsite in Colchester.

It is the tragic tale of an artist said to have worked on some of Francis Bacon's paintings, yet whose reputation was destroyed largely by the influential critic David Sylvester. Now Firstsite has restituted their 'local hero', who lived at nearby Wivenhoe where Frances Bacon was the most regular visitor to his home.

Born in Kent to impoverished hoteliers, WirthMiller started life as a textile designer before moving to London and joining the Fitzrovia set where he met Richard Chopping – the illustrator of Fleming's James Bond books – and began a famously rancorous relationship with him.

Weather plays a significant role in Wirth-Miller's landscapes which are often darkly brooding and subject to pelting rain and howling winds. When Bacon condemned them as ‘rubbish’ , Wirth-Miller destroyed most of them and stopped painting. Firstsite's show contains some 100 surviving works: there should have been many more to admire were it not for his backstabbing friends and critics.

Until 22nd January at Firstsite, Colchester, UK

ehind the bright canvases and graphic drawings on show at the Royal Academy's show of seven 19th century German artists lurks the dark question: why has it taken 100 years for such women to find a place in art history?

The exhibition is built around the work of Paula Modersohn-Becker, Käthe Kollwitz, Gabriele Münter, Marianne Werefkin, Erma Bossi, Ottilie Reylaender and Jacoba van Heemskerck. All were from reasonably privileged families yet faced a massive disadvantage: ladies were not permitted to enter the academies in Germany until 1918. In addressing the roles that they were they offered in a theatre designed for men, the curators have chosen four main themes – Ourselves and Others, The Century of the Child, Sites of Intimacy, and City and Country. In her philosophical essay available on the RA website writer Rachel Cusk looks at the dilemmas facing such women –

should they adopt the role of a man and the subjects that were deemed worthy of the big prizes or should they somehow try and break that mould? Modersohn-Becker chose to break with convention and notoriously was the first woman to paint nudes, often using herself as the model.

The most arresting works are not paintings but Käthe Kollwitz’s prints and drawings including examples of her “Secreta” or secret drawings which were never shown or sold during her lifetime. We are fortunate that they were not actually destroyed: Kaiser Wilhelm II called it "gutter" art.

This small exhibition tackles a huge subject. It has met with mixed success – a more comprehensive exhibition awaits. Until 12th February at the Royal Academy, London, UK

At the heart of Lucid Air Sapphire lies a three-motor powertrain – the first from Lucid – featuring a new twin motor rear-drive unit and a single motor front-drive unit. These technically innovative electric motors incorporate Lucid’s microjet stator cooling and wave winding. The twin rear-drive unit also introduces new heat exchanger technology and heightened coolant flow rate. The battery system is also upgraded for higher power and more precise thermal logic.

As expected, Lucid Air’s Sapphire three-motor powertrain delivers even more horsepower than the car’s dual-motor siblings, including the 1,050-hp Lucid Air Grand Touring Performance. With over 1,200 hp, Lucid Air Sapphire is not only the most powerful electric sedan in the world, it is

the most powerful sedan in the world. With this vast power and the enhanced delivery afforded by the twin rear-drive unit the Lucid Air Sapphire will accelerate from a standstill to 60 mph in less than two seconds, from zero to 100 mph in less than four seconds, and the standing quarter mile in under nine seconds. These figures are achievable with no

extra-cost, equipment upgrades or protracted preconditioning routines. Additionally, massive carbon ceramic disc brakes come as standard, endowing Air Sapphire with the stopping power to match its prodigious performance.

ICONIC BUILD

The Pagani Utopia radiates simplicity. It asserts itself straightaway, affirms and imposes its lines, which are so typical of Pagani but at the same time it is so different from anything the company have offered before. The Pagani Utopia's shape is more flowing and curvaceous. From the windscreen, with its rounded upper edges, to the details of its wings and bonnet, its softer contours give it a new expression and a new outline.

The most difficult part of the process for Pagani has been to follow as closely as possible to the original intention of creating a timeless design object, instead of one that follows the fashion of the period. The new car has very few aerodynamic add-ons yet is more efficient than ever. Where some hypercars have a multitude of spoilers, Utopia incorporates the function of these appendices into its overall shape, achieving greater downforce and reduced drag solely by means of its design.

The details of its styling are few in number, but each is so carefully executed that it can be admired in its own right: technologically advanced, their shape is inspired by objects from the 1950s like the streamlined headlamps of Vespa scooters or the fittings of Riva speedboats. The forged wheels have a turbine-shaped carbon fibre extractor which draws hot air away from the brakes and reduces turbulence under the body. Mounted on carbon-ceramic discs, the brake calipers have a new, lightened design

Veteran Car Run

ith all entrants dating back to the dawn of motoring, the RM Sotheby’s London to Brighton Veteran Car Run is the world’s greatest celebration of automotive history.

This year’s event, however, not only hailed the life-changing advent of motorised transport after centuries of horse-drawn carriages but also showcased the future with two of the venerable pre-1905 vehicles running on innovative sustainable fuels. Both Edwardian cars successfully completed the 60-mile drive despite heavy rain, surface water and localised flooding.

This is nothing new, of course, about veteran cars being propelled by ‘alternative fuels’ – some of those regularly seen on the London to Brighton Run are driven by electric and steam engines as well as primitive combustion engines.

This is the first time, though, that veteran cars have pioneered sustainable fuels on the annual trip from capital to

coast. Fossil-free fuels not only offer a low-carbon outlook for much-loved veteran, vintage and classic cars but also provide an attractive alternative to the widespread introduction of electric motors, which are likely to be only part of the overall solution.

Proving the potential, a singlecylinder, 6.5bhp 1904 Covert was propelled by a 100 per cent fossil-free fuel developed by P1 and similar to the decarbonised fuel used officially by all those competing in the FIA World Rally Championship. The Covert was driven by Wolfgang Presinger, himself a veteran of more than 30 London to Brighton Runs and a board member of the Allgemeiner Schnauferl-Club in Germany.

Running the American-built Covert on a fossil-free hydrocarbon-based fuel with a blend of synthetic and bio-fuels, his findings were entirely encouraging.

“Even though the weather was the most challenging I’ve ever experienced on the event, the P1 eFuel functioned absolutely perfectly – it was an entirely positive

World’s oldest cars pioneer sustainable fuels on this year’s London To Brighton Run. Words by Jonathan Gill LONDON TO BRIGHTON
dve

experience,” he related after a trouble-free trip to the Sussex seaside resort.

“We must now cross our fingers that these kinds of fuels will soon become available in good quantities at market prices thus saving us from changing our much-cherished vehicles. Then our passionate old car hobby will be part of the solution and not perceived as part of the problem.”

Acknowledging Presinger’s foresight of pioneering a fully de-carbonised fuel on the 2022 RM Sotheby’s London to Brighton Run, he was presented with a special Hagerty Achievement Award at the pre-event Participants’ Reception held at the Royal Automobile Club on the eve of the start. The cup was presented to Presinger by Ben Cussons, Chairman of the Royal Automobile Club. Cussons himself drove the 10bhp, 1901 Mors entered by the event’s organiser, the Royal Automobile Club, running for the first time on a forward-thinking sustainable fuel –and he was equally impressed as Presinger with his findings.

“It really could not have been any easier,” he reported. “The fuel only arrived 24 hours before the Run – we simply drained and refilled the tank, completed a short test drive and packed the Mors off to London for the dawn start on the next day. In what were truly testing conditions, the car performed superbly – if anything the engine ran better than ever.

“While electric cars may be part of the solution, it’s so very important that we keep an open mind. If we can find affordable alternatives that do not require a complete overhaul of the infrastructure as well as environmentally costly replacement of existing vehicles, so much the better. And, from both my own personal experience having driven the Mors on last weekend’s RM Sotheby’s Veteran Car Run, and those of Wolfgang’s, such eFuels must be part of this solution,” concluded Cussons.

Benefiting from a thriving arts and culture scene and incredible healthcare and education, Austria is a destination that’s ideal for property investors. As well as visiting the opera, and touring the gardens at Schonbrunn Palace, Austria is one of the world’s ski destinations.

Giles Gale, Managing Director for Alpine Property Finders states: “Most of Austria’s “ski resorts” have been towns and villages long before anyone installed ski lifts. Popular destinations such as the beautiful Kitzbuhel and Zell am See date back to the 18th century and were popular summer holiday destinations for the wealthy elite from the Austrian-Hungarian empire.

“What this means is that plenty of Austria’s ski resorts are busy throughout the year with thriving summer seasons that are viewed with envy by many of the purpose-built, higher altitude French and Swiss ski resorts. This is all good news for property investors that benefit from excellent rental returns driven by a year-round tourism market - not just a 14-week ski season.

“Resorts with year-round tourism are the most popular with buyers looking for family friendly activities that they can enjoy 12 months a year. Most buyers in Austria are interested

in enjoying their property throughout the year – not just during the ski season.

“In Zell am See for example, you will find the beautiful Lake Zell with its warm waters, beach clubs and watersports attracting active families from across Europe. Similarly, just across the border in Austria’s Tyrol region, Fieberbrunn is a firm family favourite with a vast 260km+ ski region as well as summer activities galore including the scenic Lachsee swimming lake.”

Florain Hofer, Managing Director of Engel & Völkers Kitzbühel adds, “The alpine state of Tyrol and Salzburg Land is ideal as a feel-good residential region for many reasons. In addition to the unique natural landscape, Tyrol is characterised by excellent modern infrastructure and an attractive range of leisure and work opportunities. More and more people who want to orient themselves in the direction of nature and work-life balance are moving from the big cities to the mountains of Tyrol and Salzburg Land. From Germany and Austrian cities, many people move their centre of life to the federal state with an above-average quality of life.

“The 3000-metre-high mountains, countless kilometres of ski slopes and glacier ski areas allow skiing in autumn. In summer one can

enjoy our many lakes with qualitydrinking water and untouched nature in the national park valleys for hiking, cycling, climbing etc. Austrian properties are well known for a good investment because of the high construction quality of the apartment/ houses at the highest standard”.

“Most holiday properties in Austria come with a rental obligation as the Austrians are keen to avoid the ‘cold beds’ that are the curse of many high-altitude French ski resorts,” says Giles. “This means that you are likely to be asked to sign a rental agreement alongside your property purchase.

“EU citizens have exactly the same rights to buy property as Austrian citizens but Brexit has added an additional layer of complication for UK buyers who are now restricted to properties in designated ‘zweitwohnsitz’ areas.

“Recent law changes in 2018 have severely limited the availability of second homes in Austria. Unless a property was used as a holiday home before 2018 then it cannot be used for touristic purposes. This restricted supply, as well as tight regional planning laws, should support prices into the future. Property investors who are able to acquire a property with permission for touristic use can expect to see strong rental income and sold capital gains into the future.”

France

ith something in the region of 89.4 million tourists visiting the country every year, France’s quaint cafes, exquisite architecture and centuries of history all add to the country’s allure.

Margaux Bertrand, Head of UK Operations for Terresens UK says “France is a fantastic location for property investors as it has a strong culture in terms of gastronomy, wines, history and traditions. It is also an opportunity to experience the famous “Art de vivre à la Française”. On top of this, France is simply a beautiful country.”

“France seduces people of all ages,” says Thomas Deruaz, Partner of Agence Clerc. And what about the country as a ski destination?

“The French Alps have many assets especially for winter sports” says Thomas. In fact, they offer their visitors many ski slopes with different levels according to each one.

Landscapes are varied and it is in the Alps that we have the best snow conditions. The ski areas are among the largest in the world, which gives the possibility of endless skiing. On the top of that, France is the first destination in the world for skiing.”

It’s clear that skiing is where France excels as Margaux adds: “France is a top ski destination thanks to its variety of ski domains including the biggest European one

– Les 3 Vallées (600km of pistes). Furthermore, every ski resort has its own authenticity and identity which meets every owners’ needs. From avid skiers, and children’s activities to mountain bikers, there are activities to keep everyone in the family entertained.”

Andrew Beale, Founder of Free Spirit Alpine, shares similar positive sentiments: “France has been a storied destination for skiers for many years with a wide variety of ski stations and areas for all standards of skiers. The French Alps is also hugely popular as a summer destination, whilst its year-round appeal is rapidly being discovered by an international market looking for clean air and outdoor living.

“This makes it hugely popular for buyers looking for primary or second homes now and in the future. For many ski resorts, buyer demand exceeds property inventory which often means a very liquid investment. Architectural design and quality of construction evolves year on year, with some of the finest real estate in the world being built in the French Alps.”

You may now be wondering what areas in France property investors flock to… Melie Dunod, Founder of August Collective says, “Certain regions of the Alps lend themselves to year-round travel. Places like Megeve and Chamonix, being at mid-altitude make them

attractive throughout the summer as well as the winter months. They form an incredible base to explore this region of France. To have access to this level of piste and be accessible to Geneva International Airport in just over an hour is no mean feat.

“The reality for many other ski destinations is that you are looking at either a very long drive or a helicopter to get you there in good time; less ideal if you are a frequent visitor of your home. The apartments and chalets we buy here always have incredible views – typically panoramic vistas of Mont Blanc. We find our homeowners who also have a place further south in Cannes or Valbonne like to escape to the Alps when it gets into the warmer months for some fresh mountain air.

“There is also an incredible gastronomic scene in this part of the Alps. Michelin-star restaurants, traditional Savoyard cuisine and of course, a thriving après ski atmosphere. As there is limited space on the mountain, properties retain their value and have seen an increase of 5.8% in the last year alone.”

Budgets for properties vary. It really depends on the amount of space you need. Melie says, “You need €1.5-2million for something with great storage, ski room, views and proximity to the lifts. You are looking at around €10,000-€15,000 per sqm for a great chalet apartment in the centre. Our homeowners only pay a fraction of this as they co-own with other families (but are guaranteed ski weeks in the season). It’s also very important to have parking.”

The future prospects for France as a luxury/ski property haven are enviable, with Margaux commenting, “France will always be a safe investment because the French Alps continue to be a much loved and attractive destination, thanks to its abundance of ski slopes, the breath-taking landscapes and the proximity to international airports. France has forever been associated with luxury, thanks to its way of living with top class gastronomy and quality of life”

Sw zerland

Known as a veritable wonderland, the most appealing part of living in Switzerland has to be the country’s exceptional lifestyle. In addition, its powdery ski slopes, frozen lakes and luxurious resort towns are enviable.

According to Alex Koch de Gooreynd, Partner at Knight Frank, “The Swiss Franc has often been seen as a negative however the current strength and stability has played into Switzerland’s hands with increasing numbers as during turbulent times, that stability is worth paying for.

“From a ski holiday perspective Switzerland boasts versatile and challenging skiing, but there has also been huge investments in infrastructure that ensure snowsure pistes, easy public transport access to each resort and improved leisure facilities for both winter and summer.”

Quentin Epiney, Founder & CEO of FGP Swiss & Alps adds, “Switzerland is world famous for its exceptional ski regions in the Alps Mountain range, including some of the most prestigious resorts in the world like Verbier, Gstaad and Zermatt. There are hundreds of Alpine resorts offering a broad range of opportunities, all sharing the same welcoming Alpine culture

and authenticity. Furthermore, the increased interest for remote working, outdoor spaces and wellness have boosted demand since Covid.

“Additionally, the country’s accessibility, health and transport infrastructures, as well as financial, diplomatic and innovation hubs combined with world-class facilities in urban areas, have made it a prime location for investors for decades. These considerations adding up to Switzerland’s economic, political and fiscal stability, as well as some of the most prestigious international education institutions, make it an attractive haven at the heart of Europe and the Schengen area, ideal to raise a family while enjoying global business opportunities, or to enjoy an alpine holiday home.”

Alex explains that “Swiss resorts have many opportunities for a variety of budgets however the average price per square metre differs hugely. In Verbier, St Moritz and Gstaad you can expect to pay in excess of CHF30,000 per sqm for the best locations within a resort however there are equally wonderful opportunities in smaller resorts that are at least 50% cheaper.

“To buy a property in Switzerland you must either have a Swiss passport or a Swiss residency permit within your passport. The only exceptions are within designated

holiday zones where a non-Swiss based buyer is limited to purchasing one property per named individual with a maximum of 200m2 of official living space. Thankfully all the main ski resorts have this holiday zone classification so foreigners can buy within these size limitations. On occasion a larger chalet will be divided into a number of apartments which allows a family to purchase in multiple names, however these opportunities are becoming fewer and fewer.”

What do we make of the future of the Swiss property market? Quentin says, “The attractiveness of Switzerland remains high internationally and we are seeing an increase in the appeal for residences, chalets and flats with hotel services and amenities. These include room service, dry cleaning, ski shop, concierge service, swimming pool, spa, a cinema room, valet parking. These are seducing more and more people, and it can be said that the country has an excellent reputation for combining discretion, service and luxury.

“It is true that the increase in value of the Swiss franc versus the drop in value of the Euro and British pound may have affected the projects of certain buyers, however for those who have the means, the acquisition of a property in Switzerland has proven to be an excellent way of preserving value in the context of a fluctuating international economy, as well as a beacon of safety and a reassuring relocation opportunity, given the neutrality of the country and its unique qualities to, for instance, raise a family away from global trouble.”

There’s no mystery to what makes Florida so intoxicating. Beautiful beaches, rustling mangroves and one-of-a-kind sunsets are but a few things that draw people in from all over the world.

Adam Miller, Broker Associate for Go to the Beach expands on what makes Florida ideal for property investors… “Northwest Florida along the Gulf of Mexico is a unique environment. The climate is sub-tropical and we have beautiful pine forests that grow around us, and we have some of the most beautiful beaches available in the United States. The sand is powder white and the waters are often a clear emerald hue. We also have many coastal dune lakes that provide us a beautiful ecosystem that is rare to the world and only found in a handful of locations including New Zealand, Australia, Madagascar and South Walton (our county), Florida.”

Peter Griese, CEO for Engel & Völkers Florida concurs that “Florida is the ideal location for property investors.” He continues, “This is due to its certainty of population growth which leads to continued increase in property valuations. While sought-out international destinations such as California and New York have seen a decline in populations, Florida has continued to grow and is now the third most populous state in America.”

Specific areas where high net worth investors flock to include “Southeast and Southwest Florida,” says Peter. “Miami is now the

international hub in the U.S. with great beaches and diverse restaurants and a lively night life. For those seeking a more casual setting, Naples has been a long sought-after destination known for great golf courses, calm ocean water and early restful evenings.”

Adam adds: “There are a number of communities on Scenic 30A that were built according to the principles of New Urbanism. These small towns were meticulously designed by talented architects and creators to promote walkability, community activity and overall neighbourhood aesthetics. These new urbanist developments are built right along the coast and are very appealing to high net worth investors because they are consistent in quality and aesthetic while also offering luxury-level amenities, shopping and dining. Seaside, Florida is a favourite tourist destination. It was the backdrop to the 1998 film “The Truman Show,” starring Jim Carrey and Ed Harris. Carrying the slogan “New Town, Old Ways,” Seaside presents itself as a quaint beach getaway with modern conveniences. The town’s many merchants are vibrant and unique, helping to make visitors experiences memorable. Stop by Modica Market and Central Square Records on your next stay.”

Florida is also home to a host of activities, including “Year-round fishing, golfing and all other beach and ocean activities,” says Peter. “A diverse global population of visitors and homeowners supports a diverse range

of high-quality restaurants in the luxury destinations,” he continues.

Adam turns our attention to the future of the Florida property market, and says, “I believe our area has a strong foundation. We’ve been through hurricanes, oil spills, and all kinds of market shifts. What holds things together is the natural beauty which always endures. While our area has always been a strong second-home market, it also has attracted primary owners in the masses over recent years. The area’s beauty and popularity alone point to a positive future for investors and owners.”

Entry to the hotel is via either a modern porte-cochère at the property’s east entrance, or the main walkway on Washington Avenue.

A modern glass tower built atop restored Art Deco storefronts, the Moxy is all about easy living, with every handy extra you could need for a well-sorted stay thrown in.

This seven-storey boutique hotel also has six eating and drinking venues by Coyo Taco Group. They include the Bar Moxy, an all-day lobby bar; Los Buenos taco stand/bodega; Serena, an openair rooftop restaurant and bar with a laid-back yet sophisticated vibe; and private event lounges Mezcalista and Como Como.

The Equestrian Hotel

The equestrian hotel in Ocala, Florida is a quiet, luxurious escape featuring 248 rooms created with equestrian pursuits in mind. With two of the most expansive climate-controlled indoor and outdoor equestrian sports facilities in the world, the hotel houses weekly top-level competitions and events in a familyfriendly environment.

With a setting that evokes the desired elegant temperament of the most luxurious of hotels, the design of The Equestrian Hotel was led by neoclassical French architecture. Every inch of the property was designed exclusively for the hotel by the in-house design team: from the Hermes/Louis Vuitton inspired carpeting to the custom saddle stools around the horse-shaped bar in the Yellow Pony Pub.

The grand lobby has 20-foot ceilings, crystal chandeliers and a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, as well as mahogany and Italian porcelain throughout the entire first floor. Through the hotel, works by local artists are strategically placed so guests can explore the various art forms on display. These include carefully placed paintings of animals in beautiful frames, and outstanding sculptural art pieces.

A favourite haunt of celebrities like John Travolta, as well as Olympians, guests are also able to relax in the spa or by the pool, or explore the variety of shopping and dining options available on-site. The Equestrian hotel is quite literally a ‘paradise found’ sort of spot, the kind worth writing home about… unless you’d rather keep it to yourself, of course.

New York

Often referred to as

‘The Big Apple,’ this fast-paced location is a hub of opportunities and a creative spirit.

“As America’s largest and more dynamic city, NYC has a constant influx of domestic and international transplants,” says Craig George and Kevin Brown, both from Sotheby’s International Realty – East Side Manhattan Brokerage.

“The vast majority of those new residents are initially looking for rentals, creating a very healthy and lucrative rental market,” they continue. “While carrying costs are higher than other international cities, our historic appreciation over time is where investors will reap the biggest returns.

“While Central Park South, Tribeca and the West Village remain very popular, investors are exploring Midtown East as a value play, as well as the Upper East Side, which is now perceived as a more stable neighbourhood, less transient and with fewer tourists. People love visiting New York City for its food scene, culture and architecture, so it’s only natural they would want to own a piece of the Big Apple!

“There are no restrictions for foreign buyers in condos or townhouses, but coops may present more challenges due to their higher level of financial and personal scrutiny. The vast majority of coops restrict subletting, so they are less than ideal investments. In a full-service luxury condo, you should expect to pay between $1500 - $2000 per

square foot, or roughly $1,800,000 - $2,400,000 on average for a 1200 square foot two-bedroom apartment. New developments average $2000 - $3000 per square foot, so it’ll likely be $2,400,000$3,600,000 for a 1200 square foot two-bedroom apartment.

“The rental market has been extraordinarily strong for the past nine months, with price increases averaging 30-40% over pre-pandemic levels with no concessions. Recently, the demand has started to cool and prices have stabilised or started to come down. In some cases, small concessions are starting to make a comeback.”

Craig and Kevin rave about the countless activities there are in the city…“You could live in New York your entire life and not experience all of the fantastic restaurants, but some standouts include Carbone and Via Carota in the West Village and Le Bernardin in Midtown. Broadway is constantly reinventing itself, and recent hits include Six, Moulin Rouge, and MJ the Musical. One of the great pleasures of New York, however, is just walking the streets and discovering the many boutique shops and historic architecture.

“Our last market peak was 2015, and since then we have seen prices decline and stabilise at 2018 levels. We fully expect another market peak in the next 3-4 years, and the longterm prospects for appreciation are certain based on historic trends. If you hold long enough (10-20 years), you have an opportunity to double your investment if you time it right.”

The James F. D. Lanier House, a landmark mansion built in 1903 and meticulously maintained for well over a century, remains one of the finest residential architectural works in New York City.

PwC Campus brings peace of mind, and this is the backbone ethos behind the new landmark headquarters for international consultancy PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), developed by international real estate investor and developer Ghelamco. The PwC Campus combines BREEAM Excellent certification with an E level of 46, applying the highest standards in terms of energy efficiency.

The site makes maximum use of natural sources of energy – solar panels achieve local electricity production, and a gigantic BTES system stores heat deep under the car park on hot days, which is used on cold days to heat the building. The building generates the energy required for all in-house businesses and amenities, without consuming any fossil fuels. This all boosts the PwC Campus appeal to clients and staff.

Other features within the office and development which reduce energy consumption include fine-tuned lighting control with movement sensors (KNX) and daylight control to reduce the use of artificial lighting; floor-to-ceiling glass façades increasing daylight penetration; shallow floors ensuring daylight reaches all workstations; and climate ceilings to ensure heating and cooling at low temperature to create a relaxed and pleasant indoor climate –as well as many more innovative energy conservation techniques.

Outside there are intensive green roofs and flat roofs able to turn into mini ecosystems; wadis (channels) around the building to enrich local biodiversity; an insect hotel adding to existing animal and plant life and rainwater collection reused during the building phase on the construction site.

The PWC Campus and The Wings, designed by Assart Architects, are truly strategic triple-A destinations, located close to Brussels Airport and city centre, strengthening both ambitious local and international companies and guaranteeing high visibility.

Setting new standards in the international office district of Brussels Airport is no easy task, but The Wings is Belgium’s first triple-certified mixed-use development with groundbreaking technology and challenging architecture. The 50,000m² of above-ground floor area will serve global companies.

The Wings is laid out in four separate blocks primarily used as co-working spaces or offices; the third wing is the hotel Hilton Garden Inn which has 250 rooms, a fitness centre, restaurants and large lobby all revolving around a luminous atrium. Ghelamco developed a building that would

enhance performance in business and be a leading example of a modern workplace.

The building has maximalised glass façades, making its own light and harmonising with the green surroundings. Its lavish terraces allow people to retreat and reconnect with nature, converting daily work into a next level experience.

The Wings has been developed as a smart building, supported digitally by a custom-made building application making it possible to provide energy monitoring with associated visualisation energy consumption, occupancy rates and remote management.

Across the surface ground level of the plot, the consultancy aimed for a ratio of 70% greenery and 30% paving. The external and terrace spaces allow for outdoor meetings, breakfasts and moments of time out to optimise work-life balance for the building residents.

H H is a German Design & Build company that has been operating worldwide for over 110 years. Based in the Westerwald region, the company has always challenged traditional build methods. The highly acclaimed HUF home is an architecturally designed and bespoke build concept, which has seen HUF HAUS win multiple awards over the years.

Mansworth House is located in Walton-onThames, Surrey. The client’s design brief was to create a contemporary, bespoke family home in the classic post-and-beam architecture - a fusion which HUF HAUS is famous for.

The position of the plot with its orientation towards the sun and flow of natural light, were the obvious starting points to determine the placement of the home. A double-height lounge in the centre of the house was created with an impressive six-metre-high glass façade to fully

enjoy the benefits of this natural light, and stunning views of the landscaped garden.

The client liked the idea of a generous reception area that has the advantage of creating a statement of pride within the house at first arrival and setting the tone for openness throughout.

The home’s appearance and finishes include: a black stained timber frame, constructed of laminated Scandinavian spruce; Argonfilled triple glazing from floor to ceiling, with clerestory windows above and a flat roof section covered with natural pebbles.

Strong, laminated double timber beams under the ceiling of the ground floor carry the load of the solid premanufactured concrete panels of the floor above. The combination of all these considerations results in the house having a net zero carbon footprint, whilst still adhering to the simplistic and luxurious theme.

B B has been in the real estate industry since 1996 when he started his company Open Frontiers.

Over the last 12 months alone, Ben has closed 53 sales, with an average of 100 listings and amounting to a total value of €25 million.

Specialising in large projects, Ben works with clients from plot purchase to project completion. His reputation precedes him and 80 per cent of Ben’s clients are connected with him because of personal referral.

Ben started working in his home country Belgium, but decided to make the move in 1998 to booming Spain. By 2001, Ben had grown his office to a 200m2 space buzzing with 12 sales agents and the full set up in La Duquesa, Cádiz. In 2002, Ben moved to Sotogrande, Andalusia. He was appointed exclusive sales agent in the Benelux for this resort during the 13 years following.

In 2008 when the real estate industry was severely thwarted, Ben and Open Frontiers weathered the storm.

After more than 25 years of service to the real estate industry and more than 1,500 properties sold, Ben is recognised in Sotogrande as the best by many. Open Frontiers has been awarded for best development in Spain, and best after sales service and property specialists.

Despite all the crises happening in the world, 2021 was one of the most successful closing years yet for the company and Ben. Highlights include the successful completion of Senda Chica, a 102 unit project Open Frontiers had in exclusivity, and the Ribera del Dorada project getting the official go ahead after years of planning – all 14 luxury apartments of this development are currently reserved, predominantly by Ben’s repeat clients.

Nişantaşı Koru (grove) is a luxurious residential project designed with a luxury yacht concept in mind for maximum comfort through its terraces, balconies, architectural details and concierge services.

At the city centre, and in a well-established neighbourhood, it aspires to be the kind of project that’s passed down from generation to generation. It is seen as a legacy that adds value to the city of Istanbul, and “Where the culture of modern life is integrated with classic elegance.’’

Centuries ago, Nişantaşı was a location once frequented by sultans, ambassadors, palace officials and ambassadors. It is one

of the oldest areas of Istanbul, and where some of the most beautiful architecture can be seen.

Prioritising the concept of a “healthy home” which shapes the future of architecture, the apartments provide access to the best hospitals and healthcare services and offer generous space to pursue hobbies.

The company has put an emphasis on the healing power of nature and designed the homes so that fresh air is accessed from the living room, kitchen and terraces. “Your home will be filled with oxygen from the centuries-old trees of the Ihlamur Pavilion located nearby.”

A sports complex also includes gyms, cardio, pilates and kinesis facilities, and an indoor swimming pool to prioritise residents’ physical and mental wellbeing.

Ormanköy Çekmeköy incorporates 942 housing units in 20 housing blocks, a bazaar area with 70 shops and a theme park area. It is heralded as a “huge valley of life”.

The project area cover about 200,000m² of which 90% has been preserved green space. Its landscaped design is shaped around groves and surrounded by a forest on three sides of the project. There are hiking trails, activity areas and sports fields for children and young people, botanical houses, permaculture areas and outdoor swimming pools.

The building design follows low-rise Scandinavian style architecture. The concept of healthy houses also underscores this project.

The complex is made up primarily of between one and four-bedroom flats, with a few duplexes of up to five and six. Up to 20% of the flats have their own private garden. Loft

flats have an amazing glass roof that allows you to enjoy the sun and stars.

One of the symbolic elements of this project is the skylight located opposite the flat entrance, greeting residents with the magnificent perception of light as they come home. Other luxuries include underfloor heating and the concept of hammam (steam room) applied to the bathrooms – a reference to the traditional Turkish bath architecture.

Both projects are built following new earthquake regulations. The Çekmeköy district is regarded as an epicentre of education near many universities. The project serves as the hub for both Istanbul Airport and Sabiha Gokcen Airport. Of Ormanköy, the developers Dap Gayrimenkul Gelistirme say “These building and living spaces are beyond their time, built while considering 50 years into the future”.

A O is a new prestigious residential undertaking of over 140 apartments and six commercial premises completed by Allcon, a developer with over 30 years’ experience.

The estate comprising five three-storey buildings is located in Gdańsk, one of the largest and most attractive Polish cities, in its famous historical district of Oliva. The project is situated in the immediate vicinity of the Tricity Landscape Park, next to the University of Gdańsk and near the largest business park of northern Poland.

As the site had been formerly occupied by derelict industrial buildings, the design process focused on three main objectives: adapting to the nearby residential buildings, protecting the local ecology and prioritising the welfare of the

community. This resulted in the creation of a healthy and comfortable living environment, seamlessly integrated with the neighbouring low-density, low-rise development.

The designers found inspiration in the layout of an atrium house whose external façades faced the surroundings while the internal open-roof private courtyard ensured peace and contact with nature. Similarly, Atrium Oliva features an intimate public outdoor relaxation area and a leisure zone with a club room, fitness and saunas.

The green pedestrianised patio is a modern interpretation of an ancient atrium and constitutes the heart of the estate. Atrium Oliva is only the third project in Poland to have been awarded a BREEAM certificate with the result of over 60%.

of Bucharest H Victoriei 139 is home for 33 magnificent apartments, a unique luxury residence located in the famous boulevard Calea Victoriei – one of the most prestigious addresses in the city.

H Development Europe had the task of enlivening and reinvigorating this architectural landmark through renovation and redevelopment.

The project focused on creating contemporary apartments through interior repartitions, and included façade refurbishment, repair of waterproofing on terraces and in the basement, along with roofing reconfiguration. This inter-war building, designed in the 1930s for the upper class, needed to be transformed yet still preserve the Art Deco charm and patrimonial value of the property.

A key intervention was changing the attic in a reclused floor, with a flat roof. This way the building gained a more contemporary allure without affecting its general appearance.

The company also successfully redeveloped and renovated the commercial H Tudor Arghezi 21, upgrading the existing façade, interior repartitions and repurposing the existing space. The building houses tenants in diverse industrial sectors and is targeting medium to large companies that want to relocate from the city’s peripheral business hubs to a brand-new bold office space. The company delivers the building at the shell and core phase, offering national or international tenants the opportunity to personalise it for on demand and leased space.

Finishes include custom-made elegant furniture, premium carpet titles in vivid fabrics, and calacatta floor tiles in common areas.

V is based in Zagreb, Croatia. He has been heralded as belonging to a new generation of starchitects after winning multiple awards and developing over 300 projects. He is known as ‘AV’ the architect of light, because of the atmosphere his projects conjure both inside and outside the building.

The Polyclinic Rotim is owned by Dr Rotim who is the vice president of the World Federation of Neurosurgical Societies.

The clinic design needed to stand out to reflect the desire to provide excellent patient treatment. Some of the challenges included the regulations for operational functionality. The polyclinic has five clinics of specialist expertise, such as a large physical therapy area and faraday cages for MRI rooms.

Palm trees in the lobby give a serene atmosphere that is reflected in strategically placed mirrors.

AV Residence Sibenik is the architect’s summer home. The focus was on the preservation of the apartment’s 200-year history – returning it to the original majestic Venetian interior. Venetian architecture has a great influence on the Croatian coastline.

The stucco was handmade in Italy, along with the floors from Berti with silver dust in the wood.

The windows, decorative walls and interior doors are identical replicas of the originals, and painted glass came from Venice. Most of the furniture is made by the greats, such as the Barcelona chair from Mies van der Rohe and sofa by Knoll.

The complex will regenerate the Danube riverside rust belt area and is made up of clean, elegant and generous spaces. It includes a nursery, kindergarten, playground, shops and retail units, and commercial offices.

Metrodom wanted to provide residents with a welcome return each day with a reception areas and lobby that are elegant and homely. There is an impressive 18-metre-high plaza with a key feature of a Mediterranean-inspired vertical garden.

The Metrodom Green Residential Park is an exciting new-build residential project in the IX district.

The residential development will provide affordable housing solutions to an environmentally conscious clientele.

The 508-unit complex will have eye-catching living wall façades. The dominant element of the façade design is the eye-catching living plant wall, which forms the outer shell of the upper six storeys of the building. Plants fed from a central irrigation system are placed in troughs with insulted drainage. Pre-planting allows the façade to be 100% covered with plants once the complex is completed.

Brussels, Leuven and Hasselt, Jaspers-Eyers Architects offers architectural design, programming, master planning, and graphic and interior design to governments and the private sector.

Transforming the old 1972 Manhattan Center from an unremarkable monolithic block to a leading dynamic landmark that now forms the heart of Brussels, the company was tasked with breaking up the inaccessible block and renovating it to combine several functions, such as offices, shops, bars, restaurants, a gym and four-storey winter gardens. It has attracted 50,000 people to work in the area and is now home to Vlerick Business School, one of Europe’s finest.

Montagne du Parc is the headquarters of BNP Paribas Fortis, one of Europe’s largest

banks. Ready for the bank’s 200th anniversary, its new office architecture is an example of sustainability with over 1,400m² of green space, including inner courtyards and terraces – even connecting with the city with the metro line running through it.

Placing community, context and the environment as central to their designs, the company worked with ING Belgium to create a headquarters that houses a regional competence centre for over 600 employees. The project creates a new way of working for an agile organisation, with cluster arrangements to integrate meeting rooms of all sizes. The building has a lack of separation between floors for a shared, convivial space with an atmosphere of a modern start-up. The project achieves BREEAM excellence certification including a Natura 2000-labelled garden.

   family residence nestled in the world-famous Wentworth Estate in Surrey. is spectacular home is the creation of developer Applegate Homes, whose vision is the delivery of superlative lifestyle for the most discerning clients. The kitchen design is brought to life by Ashton Bespoke which specialises in custombuilt furniture and luxury interiors.

For Longwood, the kitchen island is a dominant feature, with function and form equally as important as design. The stone ‘Taj Mahal’ was a key material selected. A raised breakfast bar with seating brought a sense of inclusion and decorative frontal panels incorporated the array of materials used within the wider kitchen. Functionality was integrated within the hob area and

downdraught extraction, three-tier drawer storage, sink area with pull-out bin and dishwasher, and the far window elevation incorporated a wine cooler. The warmcoloured timber cabinet fronts run seamlessly along the island’s length, while recessed bronze finger-pulls and the waterfall stone top brought the whole concept together.

The goal was to deliver not just a place where the family could live together, but an exquisite area for entertaining.

The curved side panels that followed all the way to the coving created symmetry to the design and linked the two wall cabinets. Finishing the panels in leather brought softness and a feeling of comfort to the kitchen. Inset brass detailing brought further sophistication to the overall look.

is based in London and Essex, with expertise in optimising the value of land and building assets for investors, through residential design.

2 Portree Street is in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. The project was won in an open competition through the Greater London Authority’s ‘Small Sites Programme’. The land is owned by Transport for London, but due to demanding site constraints was left undeveloped for many years.

The outcome achieved results in nine apartments of two and three-bedroom types and a total of 34 habitable rooms. Apartments benefit from fitted kitchens and bathrooms, a common lift and staircase and have covered, lockable bin and bicycle stores. The

top-floor apartment has the benefit of a roof terrace and each apartment has a private outdoor space.

Given the range of local building typologies, the lack of consistent architectural local style and the imposing road infrastructure, the company sought to deliver a building that possessed a robustness of spirit. The weightiness is brought about by a layering and relief of façade that withstands the significant road infrastructure, the ten storey Aberfeldy Development and the noise and air quality from the carriageway setting.

The stepped roof line mediates scale from domestic to urban and the roof terrace provides urban green space.

Interiors focus on natural finishes and a generally mid-century appearance and style.

architectural and design practice that creates beautifully designed homes that are as individual as the people who live in them.

70 Warwick Gardens in Kensington had been sitting vacant for three years and had deteriorated through the ravages of damp, dry rot and uncontrollable ivy. The exterior was unstable and the interior bore the scars of a poorly managed refurbishment that was halted. The owners opted for a full restoration project to make it a family home. CATO Creative designed and delivered every element of the project, including appointing third-party consultants, suppliers and specialist contractors.

The stunning property is arranged over four floors, and planning approval was given

for various extensions including a full loft extension to create more space in the home.

The lower ground floor is multifunctional – an informal family reception space with connection to the garden. The raised ground floor has an en suite bedroom for a housekeeper or au pair, together with a dining area and kitchen. A wine cellar and a gym suitable for an active family was a must. The master suite is a central design feature, based across the whole first floor.

The second floor is dedicated to the children, with two double bedrooms sharing a bathroom, complete with a walk-in wet room, and a third en suite bedroom. The loft allows for additional overflow accommodation. With such an incredible footprint, the design challenge was to create a space that was coherent, connected and personal and private.

It can also create virtual reality tours of developments, allowing more interactivity for the user to move around the proposed development to experience the space first-hand.

Blackpoint was commissioned by property developer EcoWorld and housing association Poplar Harca to produce a series of images for the Aberfeldy Village master plan. Working with an architectural design team the primary focus of the project was to emphasise community and provide a glimpse of the platform that would be created for local businesses and people. The images had to be fun, vibrant and active, reflecting the local culture and telling a story of the new development in the area.

in the world – and third in Arabia – Kuwait is also one of the hottest. e country, made vastly wealthy from its oil resources, attracts residents, developers, and investors from across the world, despite its summer temperatures that can reach a staggering high of 54C. Bordered by Saudi Arabia and Iraq, Kuwait has a coastline of 500 kilometres and a population of 4.67 million. According to the United Nations, the population is expected to increase by 50 per cent by 2100. Currently, 83 per cent of the population resides in the capital.

Hessah District, located in the capital, is the first-ever comprehensive, mixed-use district in Kuwait. It comprises two parts: the Residential District and the Commercial District. In turn, the Residential District comprises two

components, Hessah Towers and Byout Hessah, and the Commercial District five: Hessah PLAZA, Hessah HEALTH, Hessah WORK, Hessah HUB and H Suites. Hessah is also the first development to take on the monumental challenge of creating a walkable district in the desertous country. This is accomplished with an architectural focus on efficiency, connectivity, community, and accessibility, and an approach that can be summarised as a symbiosis of natural and man-made features. The result is a uniquely one-of-a-kind sustainable living and working environment.

The holistic project boasts an enviable location adjacent to the Arabian Gulf, within vicinity to Kuwait’s business center and cultural attractions. It consists of living areas, shopping and grocery stores, food & beverage outlets, professional offices, medical clinics, and

serviced apartments – all clustered in one urban neighbourhood and interconnected through a string of courtyards and green open spaces.

Just over half of the components in the project are designed as a system of stacked layers, implemented to maximise efficient use of space and to both harness and combat the elements. On the ground level are the pedestrian paths, aligned with wind corridors and punctuated by lush green landscaping and water fixtures. Above this level are suspended podiums that house parking structures and offer shade and shelter to the pedestrians below, creating a walkable urban haven for Hessah’s inhabitants. The podiums are adorned with living walls that absorb the sun’s rays and reduce temperatures through evapotranspiration. From the top of the podiums the towers soar regally, providing unobstructed vantages over the

surrounding areas. To reduce the impact of the sun, the buildings’ external envelopes increase ventilation and achieve shading with an artful combination of porcelain tile cladding, vertical aluminium louvres, deep recessed windows, and perforated metal screens. And where Kuwait’s harsh sun cannot be subdued with clever design, it is instead converted into energy. At least 10% of the total required demand for power for the project comes from solar photovoltaic panels located on the roofs.

In addition to the car-free pedestrian zones that link the Residential and Commercial Districts, the design affords ample vehicular accessibility for non-residents. The development is nestled between two major highways and avails six entry points. Each component possesses both public and private multi-level parking and drop off and pick up points.

Hessah Towers Hessah Towers

The hallmark of the District is Hessah Towers. At 40-storeys, the two twin towers will be the tallest residential towers in Kuwait and are designed to maximise both views and living space. With 102 units per tower, the largest number of beautiful apartments have a direct waterfront view, and each floor holds no more than four apartments.

While Hessah Towers is the hallmark of the Hessah Residential District and indeed the District as a whole, Byout Hessah is not to be overlooked. The unique structure comprises a combination of 40 stand-alone four-bedroom townhouses and two identical 12-storey towers that house 104 apartments.

Hessah District’s residential towers are luxury exemplified. In 2021, they won three fivestar awards at the Arabian Property Awards. Both afford their patrons 360-degree floor-to-

ceiling sea and city views. The smart technology features in each residence and the concierge services streamline, simplify and enrich their lives. Each tower is a vertical compound with independent amenities exclusively reserved for their residents’ use. The swimming pools, health centres, multi-purpose rooms, kids play areas and terraced gardens serve to exceed the clients’ every need as well as to provide organic opportunities for community building. Finally, the residences are conveniently located within walking distance to Hessah’s Commercial District – a base for inspired businesses and forward-thinking entrepreneurs.

While Hessah District is in proximity to Kuwait’s business hub, the district is itself positioned to become the country’s newest commercial hub. Conceptualised by Nikken Sekkei, a world-renowned architecture,

Skilled professionals from fields such as law, architecture, finance, and specialised medical fields will be concentrated in the district that spans a gross construction area of 145,250m. The award winning Hessah WORK comprises two buildings containing 80 core and shell offices and a total leasable area of 16,496m. Hessah HEALTH, also comprising two buildings, houses 68 core and shell polyclinics for a total leasable area of 12,305m. Within walking distance to both is the awardwinning Hessah PLAZA , offering up to 16 F&B outlets and 10 retail stores, and Hessah HUB, which services the district’s everyday needs in the form of grocery stores, electronic shops and more. Finally, H Suites serviced apartments

is perfectly located to cater to the businesses headquartered in the Commercial District. A stay here has international business travellers within walking distance to their associates, reducing transit time from hotel to boardroom. Outpatients are able to swiftly check out of the clinics and into their rooms worry free.

The varied services and interconnected nature of this luxury district allow Hessah the formation of an exclusive community. Here the occupants of the Residential and Commercial Districts are each other’s neighbours, colleagues, clients and associates, their lives interwoven together for as long as they are inhabitants.

Hessah District was developed by United Real Estate Company (URC), a subsidiary of Kuwait Projects Company (Holding) – KIPCO, one of the largest holding companies in the Middle East and North Africa.

residential estate in the Waterfall mixed-use node in Northern Johannesburg by Balwin Properties and LYT Architecture. e project is also by far the largest residential estate in Waterfall and will eventually offer 5020 homes, consisting of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, together with a mixed-use lifestyle centre, a hotel, a sports lifestyle centre, sports fields and facilities, and a pre-primary school.

Situated along the Jukskei River, the estate offers a variety of mini precincts within it including river frontage zones, multiple individually themed internal parks, the sports precinct in Phase 2 and the central lagoon. At the outset it was decided that the introduction of a Crystal Lagoon would give the estate a unique focus and ambience and it is from this that Munyaka derives its name (Munyaka is the Venda name for crystal or crystalline).

Set in the southern suburb of Johannesburg, Thaba Eco Village offers a new eco-friendly lifestyle. Boogertman and Partners Architects were briefed to design a four-storey multipleresidency with one- to three-bedroom apartments. The architecture incorporates Transvaal architectural elements, including vertical sheeting, broad-spanned balconies and pitch roofs. The project features cutting edge amenities including a restaurant, indoor gym, Thaba trails, laundromat, outdoor swimming pool, and a kids play area.

Adding value to Gordon’s Bay are the ultramodern, meticulously designed one-, two- and three-bedroom open plan studio homes for project GreenBay, which flow seamlessly into the landscaped outdoor area. With its communal facilities, including a restaurant, swimming pool, laundromat, indoor gym, children’s play area and sportsfield, one can truly experience and appreciate a wonderous lifestyle.

design firm based in Riyadh in Saudi Arabia. It specialises in interiors, fabrication, curated furniture collections and art.

The company offers tailored and comprehensive design services catering to a wide spectrum of tastes, preferences and styles. With a firm desire to conceptualise, orchestrate and devise multi-functional spaces that are flexible and pragmatic yet stylish, the founder Al Anoud Khalid Mishaal set-up A Interiors to do more than just design residences, but to define lifestyles.

The design firm’s growing success is the result of Al Anoud’s contagious enthusiasm, keen eye for detail and hands-on styling approach. With an uncanny ability to grasp the true essence of client’s design preferences, Al Anoud develops a definitive style for each

project. It is this capacity for understanding the true nature, desires and driving forces behind each assignment that ensures A Interiors longevity and loyalty among clients.

The company’s design of a private residence (the ABA project) combines modern sleek lines with traditional Islamic influences to create a sense that is both calming and comfortable.

The palace interior design project applies a minimalist design and an aesthetic inspired by the oriental movement. This is enhanced through the strategic appliance of geometric shapes. The project requirements entailed high ceilings, and big windows in all areas to enhance natural light as much as possible, three bedrooms on the first floor, daily living on the first floor, a guest room on the ground floor, a formal dining area that could accommodate up to 30 people, a second dining room on the

ground floor for daily use, a daily living area on the ground floor, a large formal reception area on the ground floor and light colours used across all areas.

The breathtaking handcrafted ceilings were designed in Beirut by expert wood craftspeople Nest. This incredible feature gives a sense of muted elegance that elevates the height of each room.

The private client wanted to mix the old with the new, so wooden elements were reinforced throughout the interiors to create a primary design foundation and subtle accents that animate the space.

Korean artist Cha Seung and curator and art consultant Raneem Farsi, co-founder of the AR Art Advisory collaborated with A Interiors to select the perfect pieces for the space. There is also a beautiful custom designed elevator with

Pierre Frey wallpaper to create a warm and inviting atmosphere.

Maintaining clean, neutral colours, the rooms cohesively blend into one another, allowing for unity in design, but also enabling the unique vintage collectibles hand curated to stand apart and shine.

Purposeful splashes of colour and accessories artfully selected by Rabat Manzil draw the eye around each room.

Lavish, gilded mirrors pay homage to Islamic and Middle Eastern traditions while also creating a magical symmetry. Bespoke furniture sourced from Greek designers Karageorgiou complete the minimalist design, fusing together function with art.

Sculptural tiles designed by Tiles of Ezra and delicately placed within the swimming pool harmonise and completes the overall look.

the United Arab Emirates, between Yas Island and Saadiyat Island, lies Jubail Island.

Just a short drive from downtown Abu Dhabi and with more than 30 kilometres of waterfronts sprawled across 5,000 hectares, Jubail Island is poised to become Abu Dhabi’s leading idyllic sanctuary, with a stunning collection of villages designed to attract wellness and nature enthusiasts.

With a sense of being a world apart, Jubail Island itself has six distinct villages seamlessly situated across the natural environment. It seeks to be known as a low impact, low density settlement which has a unique approach to community living. It’s incredible ecosystems allow you to watch and experience nature on your doorstep. Its

wetlands play a role for roosting and feeding many migratory birds so exotic bird sightings are commonplace. Residents may also be able to enjoy occasional sightings of elegant gazelles wandering close by due to the island’s position.

The tranquil landscape of winding water channels and lush mangrove forests are what makes Jubail Island a popular destination and its qualities can act as an antidote to the fastpaced urban life of Abu Dhabi.

The Marina District, situated in Marfaa Al Jubail, is a luxury neighborhood with a 66-berth marina built along a stretch of shoreline. It is complete with large open spaces, walkways, and water features. This exclusive and secluded area will offer high-end waterfront Al Marsa villa’s and unrivalled amenities, anchored by a

The development includes 41 elegantly designed Marina villa’s among some of the UAE’s most beautiful landscapes and surrounded by mangroves and wildlife. They will feature spacious interiors of up to 290m in size and available with up to three bedrooms.

LEAD Development knows that wellness is a priority for residential planning, and

environments can have a positive or negative impact on our physical and mental wellbeing. Designing communities to foster a sense of wellness can pay dividends in both savings and in earning – societal savings found through less demand for hospitals and treatments and personal savings through more ability and opportunity for the population to live well and earn.

The company has focused on sustainable approaches and materials to ensure there is a harmonious balance between the natural landscapes and the architecture. Locally sourced natural materials enhance this relationship such as clean stone volumes with accents of wood to create a soft atmosphere that respects its context. The same principles relate to interior design which focuses on both light and minimalism.

From the first meeting with the clients, REESHA Interiors had a clear vision about the design concept, which was to use Jordan & Levant architectural elements, presented in a contemporary way. REESHA decided to have the owners’ personalities represented throughout the space: the rooted sweet mum, the energetic smiley chef, and the musician/ marketing guru. In addition, REESHA Interiors blended the backgrounds, lifestyles as well as the owners’ individuality, and their vision for the restaurant as these were all important concepts behind the design.

The previous linear layout along with the limited number of tables, the dark staircase, and the unpleasant and uninviting transitional space to reach the second floor were all revamped. REESHA Interior Design created additional space to house more

tables for guests, along with a pleasant and welcoming entrance.

Other changes included creating open counters to house a juice bar, bakery and oven, and a dessert preparation counter. Previous partitions were removed to create a freeflowing area, and a ground floor wall was removed to house an inviting staircase with more natural light. The company also extended a sandwich panel to add a proper reception and landing area with a grand piano. Large windows to allow maximum natural light were incorporated throughout and the facade was enhanced by adding attractive signage.

Overall, the blend of the owners’ personalities and levant architecture created an attractive spot for UAE residents and visitors to Dubai. These elements were key to the business’s identity and success story.

BEST MIXED USE DEVELOPMENT SAUDI ARABIA Alturki Business Park by Adeem Almabani Real Estate

is a residential estate in Waterfall, northern Johannesburg, South Africa. It will offer some 5,000 homes in a variety of configurations and price points together with lifestyle amenities such as a 172room hotel, a sports centre, and a preschool and primary school.

Situated along the Jukskei River, the estate offers a variety of mini precincts, river frontage zones and individually themed parks. From the beginning, it was decided that a crystal lagoon would give the estate a unique focus. This departs from the traditional palm tree tropical theme and uses only indigenous vegetation to create its landscape.

South Point student accommodation in Jorissen Street is an 18-storey university student residence housing more than 1,100 students. It is within walking distance from the

University of Witwatersrand in Braamfontein, a central Johannesburg surburb. The design aims to improve the student lifestyle by creating a sense of place and building a vibrant and connected community.

McDonald’s in Waterfall sets out to be the flagship store in South Africa, providing a clean aesthetic, and utilising a combination of both rustic and sophisticated materials. The landscaping in the precinct was a major consideration, with the distinctive fever tree being prominent within the surrounding area and incorporated as a ‘beacon’ on the roof of the building – also planted with local grass.

And finally, the Highline is a commercial bar and restaurant located on the 9th floor of the 168-room flagship Courtyard Hotel. It offers expansive 180-degree views of Johannesburg and offers private hotel guests and public visitors a selective food and bar menu.

car park, inspired a seedy, Tokyo den of iniquity, with neon, subdued lighting and a hive of experiences to tease, with an endto-end sensory experience.

You are transported into a darkly filled space where neon illuminates in a daring new world! You enter into a controversial, edgy, back street tattoo parlour, with a character tin tile ceiling and dark wood tones, together with antique chairs and a mosaic tiled floor.

Taking inspiration from the Tokyo nightlife scene Broadway Interiors created a bar, reminiscent of a smoke-filled gambling den, reusing, repurposing and reconditioning many inventory items. A plain mirrored wall is transformed into an innovative 3D effect, using layered Samurai bad boy art graphics.

The fringe of the bar hints at the foliage in the beyond, drawing your line of sight to the treasures beyond. A few steps down and you find yourself in a glamorous Japanese dining

and bar experience. Beautiful Autumnal colours and subtle, authentic features build on the seven cultural elements of Bushido through its tradition and customs.

Developed in parallel with the design intent, the artwork is created with the customer journey in mind, from patterned, street-style roughness, to sophisticated fine art techniques, Koyo features unique, female warriors in pre-modern Japan, complementing the Samurai. Kimono patterns and forms are the overall inspiration for abstract patterns and additional unexpected Japanese art receives a contemporary vibe.

Koyo is a destination restaurant like no other, designed to intrigue, transport and build a unique and memorable guest experience. The striking design explores Tokyo’s underground world; wild and sassy it ignites experimental creativity. With interesting bespoke space lighting, moody vibes and energised daring art, Koyo keeps guests wondering!

Waterfall is extraordinary in the sense that, as a ‘greenfield’ development, unaffected by the constraints of older developments and existing infrastructure, it has allowed developers and planners to create a new city from a blank slate, utilising the latest urban design principles for infrastructure, services, open public spaces and the buildings themselves.

Offering integrated stay-work-shop-play environments that are secure, ecologically

sensitive and easily accessible, Waterfall provides unsurpassed quality of life in a vibrant urban setting.

is a six-phase masterplan development spanning a total area of over 1.5 million m. It is the first gated residence in Sharjah and overlooks the Persian Gulf in the United Arab Emirates.

Al Lilac, one of the neighbourhoods in Al Zahia, has been beautifully and meticulously designed by DSA Architects International. DSA designed the villas for two major stages of development, Al Lilac phases 4A & 4B. In addition, DSA supervised the construction up to the handover stage. This was achieved within the construction program as set out at the beginning of the project.

The homes are designed to reflect local and regional traditions with a variety of layouts and sizes among other options, buyers can choose from four-, five- and six-bedroom villas, three-

bedroom courtyard villas, and outstanding three-bedroom townhouses.

The architectural and interior design concept is a combination of modern aesthetics with timeless details. It moves away from exterior facades that only read in 2D by incorporating shutter elements to give the walls some depth. There are also cantilever slabs and overhanging balconies, and an outdoor area with overhead shading that can be used for al fresco dining.

The Al Lilac neighbourhood also includes an innovative 5,700m sensory park and accessible pedestrian walkways. It is envisioned as a home for everyone; from those who are buying their first home or just starting a family, to those who are enjoying life’s easier pace. Sharjah has the most diversified and fastest growing economy in the UAE, so Al Lilac is more than investing in a home; it’s an investment for the future.

Jumeirah, the project consists of the full interior design of a new spa and fitness centre in the Taj Exotica Resort.

The spa’s design is contemporary, minimalist yet luxurious in design with subtle Indian cues in line with the hotel’s roots – all achieved through finely crafted artefacts and design elements.

The design of the space blends effortlessly with nature thanks to the use of natural materials with an emphasis on organic forms and curves. The spa’s ambience accentuates serenity and softness to bring about a mystical and magical atmosphere. This is achieved through design elements such as natural ambient lighting, a seamless indooroutdoor connection and the use of natural

and high-quality materials such as American walnut wood, golden mosaics, travertine marble and Terra Chiara (composed of quartz and granite).

The importance of being connected to nature is a key element of the spa creation and design. One example is the use of Tadelakt – a traditional Moroccan wallsurfacing technique composed of lime plaster and finished with olive oil soap. It is ideal for use in wet areas such as showers and baths. The history of the technique has its origins in the ancient city of Marrakech at the foot of the high Atlas Mountains.

Wherever possible the outstanding views of the Arabian Gulf have been given prominence to allow guests to take advantage of their location.

    rebrand his existing hotel to a new exclusive St. Regis luxury property. Working closely with the client and the Marriott/St. Regis team, WA International needed to elevate the existing hotel to this premium luxury brand. Signature bespoke experiences that are part of the St. Regis heritage needed to be conceptualised into all areas. A design narrative for the rebranding was created using references from both the historical old souks on Dubai’s Creek to the St. Regis location on the new Dubai Canal and its adjacency to the largest exclusive shopping mall in the world.

The St. Regis brand emulates timeless elegance with a reputation of exquisite taste and impeccable service. The WA International team decided the arrival experience for the property needed the first uplift. The existing exterior stainless steel clad columns were reclad in polished black marquina marble flutes. Two new extended black and bronze metal canopies

were introduced to the porte-cochere and a row of large burnished golden pots with manicured topiary align the arrival driveway.

For the entrance areas, a large locally commissioned painting of Dubai’s skyline immediately greets the St. Regis guests. New bronze trimmed and leather clad desks have been positioned in front of the golden bronze drapery. The existing chandeliers have been reshaped to resemble a golden necklace inspired by Dubai’s Gold Souks. The tall wing back chairs were reupholstered in emerald green velvet, while additional sumptuous seating groups replace the earlier concierge area.

A signature St. Regis ‘Long Gallery’ featuring works from three prominent artists has been allocated to the central circulation area. A library and tea lounge featuring the legendary St. Regis afternoon tea service has been reimagined into the lobby lounge area and to top it off, the all day dining restaurant was stripped out and replaced with a glamorous new ballroom.

single-use space where guests arrived and checked in or out of the establishment. Innovative hotel design concepts have taken this space and made it functional in new and more useful ways for the modern traveller.

In response, lobbies have evolved into multiuse spaces for casual and formal meetings, for guests to catch up on work or catch a quick meal while they wait for friends or an appointment. With this in mind, Mouhajer International Design focused on creating a luxury dream home feel for the Sheraton Abu Dhabi. The result was a fantasy space where you feel welcome and relaxed, and are able to enjoy all the upsides of a getaway while still having all the practical benefits of a private home.

Elements of the home away from home luxury hotel concept also include warm and

cosy features, eclectic furnishings, fireplaces, the ability to catch your favourite show or play your favourite music, personalised food services, and even flexible layouts for furnishings. Nothing is cookie-cutter, yet nothing is overwhelming – everything is about mental and physical comfort, and the Sheraton includes all these elements and so much more.

Today, local experiences are a huge trend, influencing every aspect of a hotel’s design and services. This includes using local art, materials and décor to make luxury hotel rooms and spaces reflect local culture, local produce and cuisine on the menu, and sightseeing tours for local events and points of interest. Mouhajer International ensured that all these aspects were included throughout the common areas and rooms to create exceptional settings.

to the south of the Central Business District of Johannesburg, South Africa. It is nestled between the two main road corridors that funnels daily traffic into and out of the city.

The building was part of the ABSA Bank Campus which was the largest structure on this campus.

The mothballed structure was transformed into a safe mixed-use building for all income levels through this spectacular intervention by the development team and AMA Architects.

The low-income apartments are not exclusively for ABSA employees, and it houses a mix of people who live, work, play, shop, gym, enjoy childcare, entertainment and exclusive dining all overlooking this dynamic city.

The connection with the well-developed Maboneng Precinct also supports foot traffic through to Fox Street ; planting and resting

benches are placed en route to ensure a green and pedestrian friendly experience.

Within the ABSA Precinct, the Village Park, is a community focal point for ABSA employees, the local residents and visitors. The concourse highlights the notable sculptures and the very first public bleacher in Johannesburg for outdoor entertainment.

The ground floor retail areas, the art gallery, the crèche and the 15th floor social amenities attracts activity on a daily basis.

The design language of this intervention will pervade the surrounding sidewalks, through collaborations with ABSA, the Johannesburg Development Agency and the newly established Village East City Improvement District.

The transformation of this tower block by AMA Architects acts as a development catalyst to create identifiable pedestrian friendly mixeduse facilities across Johannesburg.
