Welcome!

There are properties that take maximum advantage of its locations, and those nestled in Central and South America are no different. Meander along one of the many areas in each region and you will find a biodiverse, topographical variety like no other. Brilliant interiors within each abode takes precedence too, inspiring property investors from all walks of life to make a purchase. And it doesn’t end there, you will relish in the beautiful hotels where you will no doubt find simple solace. As the momentum surged while putting the pages of this issue together, it struck me that I have never been to Switzerland. And if like me, you haven’t had a chance to go, perhaps our Switzerland feature will entice you; the properties on offer are stunning, and are framed amongst some of the most dramatic landscapes. I am already thinking about the next issue, and my inbox is brimming with beautiful abodes. Perhaps I will focus on the Caribbean or the Oceania region. Whatever the outcome, I am sure there will be plenty of ultra-luxe properties that will leave you in awe.

ount Street is where you’ll find the haute couture fashion scene, with some of the world’s most luxurious labels. Described by some as the more discreet little sister to neighbouring Bond Street, this is undeniably one of the most exclusive shopping streets in the world. According to Marcus Bradbury Ross, co-founder of The London Resolution, “Grosvenor Estates’ continuous investment in Mayfair has helped make Mount Street the place to be and be seen, it is a true destination in itself.” Hannah Aykroyd, founder and managing director of prime-central-London specialist buying advisory, Aykroyd & Co., agrees, “The 2010 regeneration of Mount Street has ensured the street now ranks right up there alongside Bond Street, making for an attractive shopping experience, with consumers able to dip into such stalwarts as Scott’s, Harry’s and The Conduit for a light refreshment when necessary.” No longer lingering in the past, property prices have continued to spiral here and it is a part of town favoured by the elite as Mr Ross explains, “In the mid-nineties, Mayfair was a quiet, slightly dull place but The Grosvenor Estate has helped it become what it is today. Now Mayfair achieves huge prices per square foot and that’s down to the fact that it’s the place to buy when you’ve made it. Here you will find residents are established, wealthy, generally over 40 years old and are often international. ” With space at such a premium, prices are escalating to an all-time high, here and in the surrounding areas says Mr Ross, “A buzzing but tiny market, boxed in by Regent Street, Hyde Park, Oxford Street and Piccadilly. Within that space there are several very good roads, and there is a small location in its centre that is uber-uber prime. Lodha has reportedly achieved a sale of £100m within their One Grosvenor Square development, while John Caudwell is rumoured to be suggesting 10k per sq. ft for the proposed units at his Audley Square development. Finchatton’s development at Twenty Grosvenor Square offers an apartment building within a hotel and some apartments are commanding in the region of a staggering £7.5k per square foot.” Once seen as a place for the wealthy to add to their property portfolio rather than to actually reside, this is now becoming a thing of former Mayfair’s past, as Robert Cox, sales manager for Harrods Estates’ Mayfair Office explains, “Mayfair has and continues to attract investors and owner occupiers. The increase in super prime new developments has certainly been a major factor. Schemes such as 20 Grosvenor Square and Clarges Mayfair have seen record prices achieved in the area. These outstanding properties

Clarges This remarkable dwelling, located in a super prime landmark development is one of Mayfair's newest and most fashionable addresses, with a collection of just 34 exclusive apartments. Offering a fine contemporary three-bedroom three-bathroom home over a spacious 3,358 sq. ft of beautifully styled internal accommodation, the property benefits from spectacular south-facing views over Green Park and surrounding London streets. Life here is very much centred around the owner/ occupier with extensive five-star residents' leisure facilities, including a modern well-equipped gym, large swimming pool, treatment rooms, cinema and meeting rooms – a welcome retreat from busy London life. Located between Clarges Street and Bolton Street, this is the ideal spot for enjoying local culture, being just a stone’s throw from many of the city’s most exclusive private members clubs and restaurants. £18.5m / €21.6m / $23.9m Harrods Estates

appeal on both a domestic and global level attracting buyers anywhere from Britain to the Middle East and from India to the Far East.” These are often lifestyle driven purchases says Mr Cox, “Discerning buyers are looking for properties which offer the highest levels of service with the finest leisure facilities – whether it be in a single house or apartment building. We have also seen an interest in “turn-key” properties that offer out of the ordinary features such as integrated art galleries or private offices.” With Mayfair ripe for regeneration, much change is transforming the area, explains Ms Aykroyd, “We have seen an increasing demand for new-build penthouses in Mayfair. This is a trend driven primarily by overseas buyers, where high-rise cities are more widespread than they are in the UK.” Whilst Mayfair’s infamous exclusivity squeezes many potential buyers out of the market, investors are looking at nearby alternatives and Fred Scarlett, sales and marketing director at Mayfair based, super-prime property developer, Clivedale London says it’s neighbouring Marylebone that is capturing the limelight: “Marylebone’s magnetism amongst international and UK buyers is its proximity to Mayfair and its ‘village-like’ feel – with its specialist boutiques and artisan shops, as well as an array of independent cafés, bars and restaurants. The Mansion stands out with its confident, striking and contemporary architecture wrapped in handcrafted terracotta sheets creating what will become an iconic London façade. The interiors offer generous light and space whilst outstanding additions to the building include a gigantic lap pool, private state-of-the-art gym, Bamford treatment room and private hidden garden, all of which make life as a resident at The Mansion like living in a renowned five-star hotel not just a private residential development.”

Mayfair Park Redences Mayfair Park Residences is an exclusive collection of just 24 beautiful homes, which will be the first in the Dorchester Collection residential scheme. A choice of one, two, three or four bedroom private apartments and a selection of generously proportioned townhouses will offer flexible living options at this prestigious address. There is also a magnificent eight-bedroom penthouse. All homes have been beautifully developed by Clivedale London, with internal spaces reflecting the design creativity of internationallyrenowned interiors expert, Jouin Manku. This prime location is situated next to 45 Park Lane, where each home will be meticulously tended by Dorchester Collection’s 45 Park Lane. This outstanding development offers a new prime spot to live and enjoy London life; residents will even have access to the superb health club. Mayfair Park Residences

historical medley of seven Georgian listed buildings, The Mayfair Townhouse will offer an escape from the bustle of vibrant neighbouring Green Park and is due to open its doors later this year. Half Moon Street has been around since the 1700s and takes its name from a public house that once stood on the corner of Piccadilly. The street’s historical ambience is heightened by its many listed buildings, with parts of Flemings Mayfair Hotel and Green Park Hotel. This has also been home to many notable residents throughout the centuries and was even used as the setting for a scene in Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest. Guest accommodation is sumptuous and reflects the surrounding decadence of ages that once also graced the street. With 172 lavish

rooms and suites there will even be two Penthouse Suites and Garden Suites if you care to stay in the utmost of style and comfort. Residents will also be able to enjoy the surrounds of The Dandy Bar located in the hotel along with a private gym and event space. Iconic Luxury Hotels, founded in December 2016, offers a small collection of exceptional hotels spread across Britain and is the luxury hotelier behind Cliveden House, Chewton Glen, Lygon Arms and 11 Cadogan Gardens. Each property has its own character, and is very much focused on making sure guests enjoy their stay. Perhaps this is one of England’s finest hotel collections with properties located in London, the Cotswolds, Berkshire and the New Forest. The Mayfair Townhouse is Iconic Luxury Hotels’ fifth luxury hotel. If you care to experience the hospitality of Iconic Luxury Hotels in London before the opening of The Mayfair Townhouse later this year, then visit 11 Cadogan Gardens in Chelsea. Here you can savour the English past time of taking afternoon tea, the epitome of the 11 Cadogan Garden’s guest experience.

Mougins, Alpes-Matimes

Situated just a short distance from the picturesque village of Mougins, famed for its historic charm, this stunning mansion is conveniently located just ten-minute’s drive from Cannes and 20 minutes from Nice International Airport. Providing ample accommodation, this domain benefits from a main house, guest house, an equipped pool house and two staff apartments. The property is surrounded by lush green parkland, spanning some 11-hectares, which has been skilfully designed by the owner, with the expertise of French landscape architect Jean Mus. Planted with a range of Mediterranean species, some 750 rose bushes and 300 olive trees in the westerly aspect, accentuated with numerous fountains, this garden has been carefully planned to create a space of tranquillity. The theme of nature runs throughout the property with shady terraces achieved by strategically planted trees. Having undergone an extensive program of regeneration some twenty years ago, the house has been completely renovated and restored using various traditions. Period features include a sumptuous walnut entrance door with characterful knocker. Burgundy floor slabs, an elegant stone fireplace and Versailles parquet floor all dating from the 18th century.

enowned as a high-end boutique apartment block, Botanic was designed by leading multi-family and hotel architects in Dubai, structural engineers in Mumbai, and constructed by the Premier Engineering and Construction business in southern India. Botanic has all the makings of an ultra-luxe project that no other apartment complex in Chennai delivers. Situated on a quiet street a few minutes away from Chennai’s bustling Anna (Mount) Road; adjoining Adyar River, and directly opposite the YMCA cricket ground, the location is a breath of fresh air. Neighbouring Chennai’s prestigious Boat Club residential area, Botanic ranks incredibly high with the best the area has to offer. This includes an outstanding architectural design and the sheer size of the units’ layout. Floor area efficiency, which is the usable area to saleable area; is about 85-88 per cent. Most apartments in Chennai offer no more than 65-70 per cent, and in Mumbai it is 50% or less! The Botanic apartment block is made up of six 4-bedroom apartments on three levels above stilt level parking, topped off by a fourth level penthouse and a fifth level private terrace. Of the total seven apartments in the

building, four apartments on the second and third floor have already been sold. Two unfurnished first floor 2,897 sq. ft. apartments are also available in addition to the furnished fourth level penthouse, which is the star of the show. Spread across over 4,200 sq. ft., with its en-suite bathrooms and attached balconies, the property also has a separate living space and bathroom for domestic help, with individual external and internal access. The fully furnished abode comes with a beautiful bar area, while two large interconnected balconies face the YMCA cricket grounds. Internal stairs offer access to a fifth level private terrace, comprised of over 1,370 square feet, and is exclusively meant for use of the penthouse occupant, with direct guest access from the fifth level elevator lobby. The upper level private terrace and super-sized lower front balconies, have the capacity to entertain 100 guests. There are also two parking spots, solar water heating, full power backup, French windows, fifth floor balustrades, 24-hour uniformed security, video security, six DVR cameras and electrically operated gates.

Europe’s NEW Riviera

With almost six decades of experience, the multi-award winning Cypriot developer Leptos Estates has launched Blu Marine, a stunning new development of waterfront apartments for the 21st century. Jill Keene visits Limassol to find out more

yprus has a great deal of incentives for those looking for a Mediterranean island home. The country is centrally located between three continents, has around 300 days of sunshine each year, one of the lowest crime rates in the world and a 17km coastline with no less than 19 Blue Flag beaches. Add to this enticing mix the fact that you can enjoy winter skiing in the Troodos Mountains and it’s not hard to understand why Leptos is seeing growth in property sales in excess of three per cent and rising. Ideally situated in downtown Limassol, just 330 metres away from the marina, Blu Marine is a hugely anticipated development of 247 fabulous apartments, all orientated

towards the sea. It consists of three towers of 34, 30 and five floors respectively, each one named after an ancient Greek God – Poseidon, Zeus and Oceanus. The high-spec apartments have one to five bedrooms and are specifically designed to reflect their beachfront location with large balconies and extensive south-facing windows. Complementing these properties beautifully are state-of-the-art amenities including a 15,000 square feet (1,400m²) health and fitness centre, 50-metre infinity pool, landscaped gardens, a bistro and 24-hour concierge services. Pantelis Leptos, deputy president, comments, “It is within Leptos Group’s DNA to invest in prime land and create extraordinary destinations with a global appeal. Limassol Blu Marine is our flagship development, the epitome of world class. Limassol is an exciting investment location and is destined to become Europe’s new Riviera.” Buyers can also take advantage of Cyprus’ Investment Programme. By purchasing property to the value of €2 million, non-EU citizens qualify for Cyprus citizenship, allowing them to travel, work and reside within the EU and Schengen zone.

Luxury living in Knightsbridge

Nominated for Best Architecture Single Residence UK, this beautiful abode was the site of a former pub that has now been given a new lease of life

evelopment company Grandlane Homes and AR Architecture were tasked with transforming the site of a derelict building into a £12 million high-quality contemporary family home, situated just a stone’s throw away from Harrods. The client’s vision for this redevelopment site on Fairholt Street in Knightsbridge, London was to create a lovely home with enhancements to the existing building’s external appearance and interior spaces, whilst remaining respectful to the surrounding environment. The restricted site meant that the house occupied the whole plot and all external amenity spaces had to be located on the terraces, protecting the privacy of surrounding properties.

The result of this transformation was a luxury five-bedroom, six-bathroom single family property arranged across five levels connected via a feature staircase and a passenger lift. It boasts a two-level basement, a spa and a home cinema. The main façade, featuring the retained pub front and a traditional mansard, blends into the conservation area; the rear of the building is more contemporary with large sliding panels of glass and roof terraces. The design took into consideration the comfort and impact of surrounding properties to ensure the character of the conservation area was preserved. Designed by Lawson Robbs and AR Architecture, the property’s ultra-luxe interiors resulted in a home fit for royalty.

Music of the nature Recognising Hungarian masters with a cultural musical arts centre

here is perhaps no other cultural area where Hungarian art has made a bigger impact than music. Although people may know this as the land of Kodály, there are many Hungarian composers who have left their mark on the universal language of music: Béla Bartók and Franz Liszt are defining figures in European music history, while György Ligeti, György Kurtág and Péter Eötvös are giants of contemporary classical music. The House of Hungarian Music – designed by Sou Fujimoto - will provide a comprehensive overview of the music masters from Hungarian and European music and bridge the cultural divide by paying tribute to some of the best known and most respected musicians. The new educational centre is being developed as part of the Liget Budapest Project,

currently Europe’s largest cultural urban development plan. This programme will transform Hungary’s largest park on a scale not seen since the millennial celebrations of 1896. Taking an unconventional approach, The House of Hungarian Music will also serve as a performance,

training and education centre as well as exhibition venue. The interactive music hub is aimed to be a space for exploration of music. The design of this new public area and events venue in Városliget also embraces the surrounding parkland and introduces creative musical work.

ituated in the Costa del Sol, Bright was set up shortly after its CEO, Michael Rodziewicz, commissioned UDesign’s owner, Jason Harris to help turn his Marbella house into an outstanding home. After searching high and low for a contemporary villa with a striking interior and exterior, Michael bought an Andalusian style abode, not realising that the furniture he had purchased didn’t quite fit in with the home’s design. Fortunately, Jason was able to work his magic to solve the problem, thus forming a budding partnership between the two. Through its talented team, UDesign have created some of the best addresses in the world including mountain retreats in Verbier, listed buildings in London’s Belgravia and magnificent estates in La Zagaleta. On the other hand, Bright is a true trail blazer in the development realm, being the first to bring true design-led projects to the Costa del Sol area. With Jason and Michael’s

combined efforts, Bright is currently spearheading two projects in Marbella: the International Property Awards’ Best Architecture Single Residence, Europe – Villa Alcuzcuz, as well as the Vista Lago Residences. Villa Alcuzcuz features 1,323 m² of exquisite, environmentally sustainable architecture and stunning views. The second project, Vista Lago Residences has, 18 designer luxury villas with exceptional views of a lake, mountains, golf courses, the Spanish coastline to Gibraltar and the continent of Africa and beyond, all while sitting in your lounge! It’s no surprise then that one of the company’s slogans is “Improving Quality of Life through Design,” which perfectly explains how they are shaking things up. Bright creates homes that improve quality of life through pure design – home offices where isolation is not a factor, kitchens that inspire a healthier lifestyle and bedroom suites designed for easy sleep.

Is buying a home in Spain difficult? Are there any restrictions? Purchasing a property in Spain is not a difficult process. An important first decision is the location. The region you move to will inevitably determine the lifestyle you live. Another tip is to work with an estate agent, who will be the key to your success. There are no restrictions to buying a property in Spain and most are sold as freehold but, make sure that your solicitor or lawyer is a qualified abogado or abogada registered with the Spanish Bar Association. Remember to include any purchase costs that will arise including taxes, which will normally be around 12-15% of the purchase price. Be sure to also enquire about the up-keep costs of the home and annual comunidad fees, as well as any local and non-resident taxes. Do we need to carry out a property survey?

Bigger and better Why have a wall when you can have a television?

J

ust as we reach critical mass for 4K video, television manufacturers have upped the game to keep pace with the demand for increasingly large screens. At a diagonal size of 98 inches, and a whole four times the resolution of 4K, the Samsung Q950R 8K television provides the sort of picture that makes reality seem washed out and unconvincing.

While 8K content may be thin on the ground at present, you’ll have the benefit of a dedicated artificial intelligence engine to upscale lower resolution sources with the highest fidelity, together with enough future-proofing for the next generation. The QLED screen provides intense brightness and contrast to make maximum use of HDR content. And, to save this monolith of a television from dominating your room when not in use, there’s an ambient mode to replicate the pattern of your wall on the screen, with optional filters to generate a work of art. Smart features and voice control come as standard, of course. £69,999 / €83,000 / $92,000 www.samsung.com

Things are heating up! For the perfect culinary outdoor kitchen companion, this Kalamazoo K750 Hybrid Fire Grill will certainly do the trick. Its sheer versatility is evident with its ability to accommodate gas, wood or charcoal, resulting in a variety of tastes and flavours. Its heavy, cast-bronze Dragon Burners deliver an operating temperature range between 250 to 750 degrees, which results in a multifaceted performance for searing quickly or cooking low and slow. The Hybrid Fire Grill is also engineered to deliver uniform heat with no hot spots. This is possible due to the fact that its deep firebox goes all the way to the floor, using the entire body of the grill to circulate air and heat, thus being double the volume of most grills. With the support of the Kalamazoo team, you can rest assured that this grill, whether you opt for a built-in or freestanding model, will blend seamlessly with your outdoor setting. £13,810 / €16,289 / $17,995 www.bradshawluxury.co.uk

Salvador Dali painting, called Heavenly Diptych, that could well surpass its £10 million estimate, leads Bonhams Impressionist and Modern Art Sale in London on 26th March. Couple aux têtes pleines de nuages, has never been seen at an auction before. The work depicts Dali and his wife Gala formed only by the outlines of the frames. The motifs – scattered rocks, a disfigured tree, indistinct human figures, a girl skipping, a giraffe on fire, and clouds that fill the frames are recurrent Freudian themes in the surrealist iconography.

FEAST AND FAST The Art of Food in Europe o sooner had Last Supper in Pompeii drawn to a close at the Ashmolean in Oxford than a giant pineapple by food artists Bompas and Parr appeared outside the Fitzwilliam in Cambridge to announce the opening of Feast & Fast. Inevitably some critics teased that the old rivalry was at work but given the universal fascination with culinary matters it is hardly surprising. Food and culture have always been intertwined. The 300 objects here do more than show the brilliance of tableware from a gilded rosewater basin used by Elizabeth I to the 18th century rabbit tureen in which the victim (presumably) stewed. There are paintings and manuscripts, recipes and notebooks, and lessons on how to get bees to return to their hives, too.

arrying a variety of trends, textures and colours was key to creating a balance between classic and contemporary styling within this drawing room. We used a colour palette of rich blue with neutral accents for a statement interior, whilst incorporating our clients’ grand piano so that they could entertain guests. We worked with the client’s existing chandeliers, coordinating the rest of the metals in the room to match the bronze finish in the existing lights. These included inlays within the fitted bookshelf, the antique bronze framed mirror above the fireplace, and coffee and console

tables. This was also echoed in the choice of accessories we used to dress the shelves and furniture. Beautiful silk-effect wallpaper in a soft, warm, neutral colour was also used to create a luxurious backdrop, which added depth and texture. We introduced heavily interlined satin curtains with textured pelmets, accessorised with stunning bespoke crystal tiebacks for a touch of glamour. Individual threads were selected for the tiebacks to provide a perfect match to the rest of the scheme, and enabled us to personalise the length to suit the extraordinary height of the window. www.aji.co.uk

ith more than 19 years of experience, The Nielsen Collection of Interiors specialises in kitchen and bath redesign with fresh, contemporary styling that will engage one’s imagination. To add to its repertoire, the team was tasked with creating a zone for relaxation and stress relief. To ensure inner and outer harmony in this bathroom, we began with a fresh clean white palette for the background and balanced it with shades reminiscent of nature, while the dark cabinets provided anchorage for the space. The colour filled steam shower provided healing and physiological impacts through the use of chromotherapy, such as blue, the colour for peace and purple, the colour of spirituality and relaxation. Other materials chosen were large textured slab tiles for the shower and steam areas, accented with natural stone in warm and cool shades of creams and grays, while stainless steel was used for the base of the custom steam lounger seats and the custom ceiling light fixture. Chrome, glass and mirror completed the look and feel of the elements used throughout the space, creating an area to suit our clients’ needs. www.nielsencollection.com

GDY Design takes inspiration from famous American architect Frank Lloyd Wright when it comes to creativity and exclusivity

B

lending history, imagination and exceptional skills, GDY Design offers a refined take on making interiors come to life. The company’s influence is all thanks to the greatest American architect of all time, Frank Lloyd Wright, who was known for his organic architecture. Wright’s designs were far from ordinary and never a repeat of themselves. Every aspect of his work had a personal touch owing to his incredible eye for detail. GDY produces one-of-a-kind layouts, which stray considerably from a one-style-fits-all approach. It is GDY’s passion for design, commitment to its clients and the love of its work that drives the entire team to be the best. Inspiration is drawn from the company’s surroundings, from the lush green grass to elements seen on a piece of furniture. All of GDY’s projects are unique, and are of the highest quality. From a luxurious entrance hall to a casual dining room, the elements and character of each are of the utmost importance.

Its 2.9–litre V6 biturbo engine delivers 280kW (380PS) – an increase of 15kW (20PS) compared with its predecessor. The revised PDK dual-clutch transmission and an optional Sport Chrono package give this model its performance capability with acceleration speeds of zero to 62mph in 4.7 seconds, three tenths faster than before, with a top speed of 162mph. This newest compact SUV variant carries Porsche’s Gran Turismo Sport badge, whilst the specially tuned Active Suspension Management (PASM) damping system offers greater control. For improved cornering, the chassis has been lowered by 15mm and can be lowered a further 10mm with optional adaptive air suspension. Combined with the standard 20-inch RS Spyder Design wheels and the generously-sized cast iron brakes, the new Macan GTS has the agility and responsiveness of a sports car, united with Porsche’s iconic styling. As an added option, if you want or need improved deceleration then opt for Surface Coated Brakes with tungsten carbide coating or Ceramic Composite Brakes.

Central & South AMERICA’S finest Living in South and Central America sounds exciting given both regions’ rich cultures, biodiversity and variety of glamorous locations, each with magnificent residences and individual reasons to invest

C

entral America’s rugged, rainforested backdrop in uber glamorous Costa Rica with its breathtaking Caribbean and Pacific coastlines and extraordinary biodiversity is drawing the attention of property investors the world over. Tim Fenton, President of Costa Rica based real estate agency, Blue Zone Realty International explains, “Property ownership in Costa Rica is quite simple, and unlike other tropical countries, overseas buyers can enjoy all of the rights of ownership. Property taxes are considered low, at 0.25% of 1% of the property value, plus a luxury tax which is also 0.25% of 1% of the property value. “The most popular destination for luxury remains the north Pacific part of the country, with established communities like the Four Seasons, but there is new interest in the more peaceful and uncrowded areas of the south Pacific region where home owners may enjoy a lusher and more bio-diverse environment. The southern zones developed much more recently, and with access that simply didn’t exist 89

South America.indd 1

a few decades ago, the Costa Ballena or Whale Coast region now offers endless possibilities,” says Mr Fenton. From Brazilian beaches to Argentinian glaciers and beyond, South America is a stunning region. However, Andrew Amos, lawyer and land broker from ReMind Group, affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate in Argentina, says that it’s Patagonia that is gaining the most attention. “Since the 2000´s the Patagonian real estate market has seen the presence of young entrepreneurs from the US mainly, but also from the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, South Africa, Australia and since 2015 various investors from the Middle East. »

Considering the inflationary process occurring in Argentina since 2018, real estate prices have touched their minimum in 20 years. Due to inflation, prices have been trending down for the last 18 months, however, the market should start its recovery process from the second quarter of 2020.” According to Guido Mosin, Research Manager at JLL, “Concentrated demand for luxury properties is in the cities of Colombia’s, Bogotá, Buenos Aires in Argentina, Punta del Este in Uruguay, São Paulo in Brazil and Santiago, Chile. These districts – each with its own dynamic – have shown strength and growth in recent years.”

Considered to be extremely stylish, this linear 1000m2 home features a huge living room with magnificent floor to ceiling windows, giving outstanding views across Copacabana. This stunning property also features a modern American style kitchen with four spacious and modern bedrooms, all with en suite

A good time to buy

Chris Dietz, Executive VP, Global Operations at LeadingRE, says, ‘‘Recent political uncertainty and currency devaluation across South America has dented demand, although Uruguay could improve next year due to increased investment, both locally and from Argentina owing to its stable economy. Paraguay’s economic and real estate growth could be fuelled by its healthy export market. In Ecuador, the political unease will affect Quito and other major cities, however its coastal market is likely to attract foreign investment. Recent difficulties in Chile may result in a price drop next year, while Colombia is seeing increased foreign investment, especially in Cartagena and Medellín thanks to their improved crime levels. “I expect modest growth in Sao Paulo and wider Brazil with its weak but improving economy, continues Mr Dietz. “An off-shore oil reserve was discovered near Guyana’s coast in 2017 which will drive further investment from overseas. I don’t expect significant change in Bolivia, Suriname and Venezuela, however in Central America’s Panama there is an oversupply of property and pricing has gone down by around 25% in the last three years.”

SWISS bliss Switzerland’s picturesque landscapes, sleepy meadowland pastures and lakes create an idyllic setting for beautiful homes that are never far from spectacular scenery

orld renowned for its top-class Alpine skiing resorts and close relationship with nature, it’s no surprise that Switzerland attracts international visitors, the world over. However, buying a substantially sized property here requires a permanent residency due to the restrictions on ownership. Ueli Schnorf, owner of Wetag Consulting ImmobiliareSA, affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate in Ticino, Switzerland explains, “With very few exceptions, larger residential properties have to be purchased and used as a main residence, therefore it is either large apartments or villas that international purchasers are looking to secure. This is quite a unique Swiss restriction for foreigners considering large residential property. Those that don’t want to take main residence can only buy a small holiday home.” According to Alex Koch de Gooreynd, partner and head of Knight Frank’s Switzerland desk, the country has a law called Lex Kholer, which limits the sale of residential real estate in non-holiday markets to Swiss-based residents only, “Purchases in villages such as Cologny are impossible unless you are in possession of either a Swiss passport or residency permit. If you are considering a move to Switzerland then the process to take residency is fairly straightforward especially if you are arriving with an EU member passport.” “With the new law on second homes, no additional properties are allowed to be developed, so a lot of existing properties are being renovated,” adds Sandro Bolton, managing director of Griwatreuhand, a real estate agent in the Jungfrau region. One major draw for the international investor is the tax benefit as Mr Schnorf explains, “General taxes are lower than in many European countries, and foreigners not working in Switzerland may ask for a very interesting flat-fee-taxation. Foreigners from all over the world, all continents – predominantly Germans, Italians, French, Scandinavians, Benelux, Russians, South Africans and South Americans – are the main demographic of investors in Switzerland.” Mr Koch de Gooreynd adds, “The Canton of Geneva is one of the regions that still offers a lump sum form of taxation and are now offering a reduced 13.99% corporation tax, down from over 23% last year.” » 102

There are a number of property hotspot areas attracting international investor attention, says Mr Schnorf, “The Swiss mountains such as Gstaad in the Bernese Oberland region of the Swiss Alps, with its prestigious international boarding schools that have long made it a destination for both royalty and celebrities alike. Also among the popular Alpine mountain villages are Verbier, for the Four Vallées ski area, with year-round natural snow reserves; Zermatt, popular for skiing, climbing and hiking; St. Moritz, a luxury resort town in Switzerland’s Engadin valley and the village of Andermatt, with its narrow streets lined with traditional chalets.” “Shared between France and Switzerland, and overlooked by the Alps, the Lac Leman area or Lake Geneva, including Lausanne, Montreux, and the Geneva region is another property hotspot region. Also, the Italian speaking Ticino area in southern Switzerland with its Mediterranean vibe, palm-lined lakes and characteristic Alpine peaks has great appeal. The architecture, cuisine and culture here is closely related to neighbouring Italy with Lugano and its surrounding hills such as Collina d’Oro and Ascona/ Locarno on Lake Maggiore being popular choices,” he explains. Mr Bolton agrees adding, “The best areas to consider buying property in are the Swiss Alpine resorts, such as Grindelwald, Gstaad or Verbier with these areas being popular with expats, Europeans and Swiss Nationals. The property prices in Alpine resorts haven’t risen for some years now, so prices are interesting, also there is a lot of investments into the local infrastructure, which increases the attractiveness of a resort.”

 D A (SD Architects) is a company passionate about design, form and function in order to achieve each client’s brief. Based in Brentwood, Essex, its team consists of highly creative and dedicated architects, graduates, technicians, 3D visualisers and interior designers. Lodwick is SD Architects’ award-winning architectural project in Southend-on-Sea, Essex. The property’s site was unique in that it is located at the end of a cul de sac and in an elevated position. The client’s brief was to design an inspirational, contemporary family home, maximising the site’s panoramic views of the Thames Estuary. The aim was to create a Miamistyle house that interacted with the south facing views of the estuary, beach and beach huts.

Designed over three floors plus a basement level with swimming pool, entertaining space and health complex, the ground floor has been derived around two zones or pods. One is a curved structure that opened the main entrance into a large, double-height hallway, while the other is a crisp, linear form with curved external walls. The first floor continues the two-pod theme, incorporating the master bedroom suite in the east wing and opulent girl’s bedroom suite and a guest en suite bedroom in the west wing. At second floor level, the design is at juxtaposition to the rest of the house, providing two equal-sized boys’ bedroom suites with the most fabulous panoramic views imaginable.

In line with plans for the complete renewal of the park, the government sought to erect new buildings for important cultural institutions in Budapest, Hungary. Enchanted by the multitude of trees in Varosliget, the structure, which is in close proximity to Vajdahunyad Castle and the lake, will represent a major crossroads in the middle of the park. Its transparent, translucent design will make it easy for visitors to find their way around, while the semi-spherical sound dome, with the use of speakers will create a special

visual and audio experience for visitors. The building will be covered on the ground floor by large glass surfaces supported by transparent glass ribbing. Featuring three floors, the ground level will be used for events while the first floor will hold offices for employees of the museum, library, club and music education rooms. The floor beneath the ground level will contain the main exhibition spaces, mechanical rooms, storage areas and the kitchen for the café. The mission is to continuously discover, collect, store, make available and transmit the results of Hungarian music and outstanding individual achievements on the history of music, performing arts, instrumental history and music pedagogy, to name a few.

General Antonio Leon 70-B1 San Miguel Chapultepec Mexico City 11850, Mexico

  M, Uribe + Arquitectos creates architecture that infuses Mexican cultural elements with a new meaning, elevating them to a universal plane. Its work is characterised by exploring clients’ needs and transforming them into projects that merge design and technology. The company has won three awards relating to the following projects. Klein Residence is located in an exclusive residential area and has spectacular views of the valley of Mexico City. The client’s requirements included four bedrooms, private family space, an open concept kitchen and generous social spaces for entertaining. A six-car underground garage, gym and service quarters were also included in the brief. The heart of the house is the terrace as it is used all year round and even houses some

of the surrounding oak trees. Indeed, the principal inspiration of the overall design was the oak trees which make the house feel immersed in nature. Moran Apartment is a penthouse owned by a mature couple with unique requirements that influenced Uribe’s final design. Their extensive art collection was one of the main focus points throughout the property as well as maximising the impressive Mexico City views. One of the clients also has tunnel vision so high contrast colours and lighting was vital for safe navigation of the apartment. A major highlight of the interior design is the living room which has been designed around a painting by the renowned Mexican artist David Alfaro Siqueiros.

G A, an international design company based in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, has been accredited with the design of a number of Grade A office buildings around the city due to the company directors’ strong understanding of international design standards and attention to detail. A large majority of TwoG’s projects are re-engagement from existing clients, following success stories from previous projects. TwoG’s entry in to the Asia Pacific Property Awards program is for Friendship Tower, a LEED Green Certified Grade A office building located in Ho Chi Minh City, with the intent to meet the demand for fully serviced office buildings. The design of the building is a celebration of the diplomatic relationship formed through the years between Slovakia and Vietnam.

The project is in a landmark location, home to some of the city’s most recognisable and historic buildings. There are few locations which offer such stunning visuals. With this in mind, the project is more than simply office space – it provides its users with unsurpassed comfort, an energy efficient workspace and the connection to the local context which is unique in its own right. Currently under construction, the project was designed using post-tensioned slab floors for the superstructure, whilst the substructure was designed to minimise ground settlement outside the site boundary, allowing for advanced construction methods due to the close proximity to neighbouring buildings. TwoG worked closely with LKP Vietnam Ltd, a Civil and Structural Engineering company based in Ho Chi Minh City, to ensure maximum structural efficiency throughout the development of the project.

 A  the result of Costa Rica based SARCO Arquitectos client’s brief to design a home in the prestigious, luxury Peninsula Papagayo Resort in Guanacaste, Costa Rica, that offers flexible family accommodation and rental potential, sleeping up to 12 people. Taking in the natural surroundings the property links seamlessly with the tropical exterior landscape, enhanced by the panoramic views. The biggest design challenge was the terrain and the differing land levels. The solution was to segment the build into several modules and then carefully plan methods to create continuation and flow, taking into consideration the varying land levels. The result was to create a central module that houses the main living space and some

of the guest accommodation. Using an up/ down flow, the main entrance and living spaces were arranged on an upper level, with sleeping areas below. The external space and swimming pool serve as a throughway to the additional bedroom module, entered by the lower level, which flows upwards to the master suite located at the uppermost point of the home. Interior styling embraces a tropical jungle vibe, and relates closely to nature. Internal requirements included master bedroom suite with private office space, four-guest bedrooms, open plan living spaces, extensive outdoor space, pool and room for staff, with ease of maintenance. Energy efficiency was also an important consideration to minimise running cost.

A

GA A, Coral Boulevard Development and SL Capital have worked in collaboration to win three awards across two of their latest projects. Coral Boulevard in the Maldives is an integrated development incorporating a retail mall, hotel and a variety of residence types and sizes. Rather than a single mass, it is made up of a series of volumetric towers which rises above an expanded horizontal podium. This podium integrates the streetscape with the development and connects both the pedestrian and vehicular circulation. Hence, the tower avoids any formal complexity but still achieves a memorable massing and silhouette due to its clustering and arrangement of towers. In addition, the

3 Cuscaden

adoption of a ‘coral’ motif as a distinctive lattice feature adds a dimension of spontaneity and playfulness to the building’s façade. The architectural design of 3 Cuscaden in the Orchard district of Singapore breaks down the scale and massing of the tower into interconnected volumes. This avoids the repetitive austerity of conventional tower design and, by creating a new horizontal and vertical configuration, a socially engaging and dynamic environment is formed. The introduction of lush sky courts and terraces offers intimacies within the tower, while the specific articulation of the façade facilitates natural daylight into living spaces, also allowing sweeping views of the city.

The group has won two awards for its project Development of Al Bujairi Heritage Quarter in Ad Diriyah. This 23,000m² multi-use development includes an office building, retail and outdoor souq, a small mosque and parking for 230 cars for retail customers in the basement levels. Built on a site of 54,354m² in close proximity to Turaif vernacular village, its aim is to revive the Albjeri area through an understanding of the place and its history. Starting with the past, through the present

and into the future, each era has been given the opportunity to express its important role in the wheel of time. The design combined a contemporary outdoor experience with historical values, satisfying all required areas and functions while giving the retail experience a twist of discovery. Regional materials such as palm leaves have been used for the roof and clay and local stones for the external walls. The design enhances the penetration of daylight into the building by using courtyards. These increase the occupants’ connection with the outdoors, reinforce circadian rhythms and reduce the use of electricity. Shading elements and canopies together with recessed windows, high external walls and roof thicknesses also improve the building’s thermal comfort.

Given the task of creating the award-winning Casa Borghino, a five-bedroom home in Italy on the site of an earlier property which had been demolished in the 1960s, Smallwood Architects were versed in building a truly original residence. To make the most of the landscape, the structure was placed on the edge of a mountain by the Poggio Rosso nature reserve, facing southwest across the valley of the Singerna river with uninterrupted views of Monte Faggetto and Lake Montedoglio.

Built in the style of a classic Tuscan Casa Padronale, the first floor houses a large openplan kitchen, dining and living space with an outside balcony, while the second floor has two double bedrooms. The master suite is generously sized with a walk-in wardrobe, shower room and secret storage. Covered loggias are featured to the east and west, transforming the home into a relaxing, open-walled living space. You’ll find a large bathroom underneath servicing the master bedroom suite to the west and a plant room to the east. A nod to modern living comes in the form of large window openings, insulated walls and roof ensuring that the home remains refreshingly cool in summer and warm in winter.

  - hotel Nest at Amami Beach Villas by Nest at Nest Hotels, SHC Group, is located in Amami, a subtropical island in the south of Japan. Architect Yasuhiro Yamashita who is from the island found the perfect location for the client and designed the resort as a collection of intimate villas rather than a massive hotel building. Ideally situated on a hillside that gently slopes down to the beach, the entire resort comprises a restaurant and administration building, three villas with private pools and 10 semi-detached villas – five by the ocean and five on the hillside. This results in a total of 23 guest accommodations. When designing the villas, Yamashita made it an essential requisite

to create an architectural form that would represent the culture and nature of Amami. After studying various forms in depth, he created a new form inspired by traditional architectural vocabularies and the shape of conch shells. The main building represents the face of the whole resort, commanding a panoramic view of the ocean. Two large roofs on the restaurant building overlap each other at odd angles, protruding dynamically, giving the space a swirling feel and multilayered complexity. The pool villas are luxurious suites with a plunge pool and panoramic sea views, while the ocean and hillside villas are meticulously staggered to provide guest privacy and create a rhythmical architectural layout.

The developer’s main goal is to renovate an existing condominium building with 210 keys into a full-service resort with 300 guest rooms as well as new buildings and six villas. As the site is a long, confined plot of land, it has a very narrow opening towards the sea. Therefore, in order to emphasise the sea view, Altus decided to frame the scenery with the existing axis of the main building and visually connect the architecture towards the oceanfront. Newly constructed, four-storey

buildings are located along the site’s border, leaving the central area free for landscape and water features and forming a private haven for guests. Guests are led from the hotel lobby and its reflecting pool, through the courtyard with its waterfall, via the swimming pool to the infinite sea beyond. The business centre, all day dining restaurant, bar and fitness facilities are all located in the newly renovated main building. This connects directly to the new 500m² ballroom building, while other highlights include a spa and two speciality restaurants, one beside the pool which doubles up as a bar and leisure area while the other floats in the sea at the resort’s pier.

K L  a leading real estate investment and development company based in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. It specialises in high-end real estate developments in three key sectors: residential, hospitality and offices. The company’s project The Galleria Residences, which is the first phase of The Metropole Thu Thiem development, has been successful in winning awards across two different categories. Located in a prime position along the Saigon River across from the historic and business district of Ho Chi Minh City, the project’s masterplan maximises the view from every apartment. This has resulted in more than 90% of units featuring open vistas of the river, District 1 or internal landscaping. The Galleria Residences takes the artful spirit of the nearby Convention Center and Opera House and translates it into modern,

artistic design. Its three towers are named after well-known art museums from around the world: Hermitage, Louvre and Prado, which define the concept of each tower’s interior design. Both the grand public and private lobbies will be adorned with famous art collections, making residents’ way home a fascinating artistic journey every day. Providing one of the most exclusive communities in town, The Galleria Residences has fewer than 100 units per tower and private lifts to its penthouses and premium apartments. Penthouses and loft condos are designed with five metre-high ceilings and modular flooring that allows the space to be enlarged as necessary. Premium units such as the four-bedroom apartment and penthouse also offer a living room that can be opened to connect both indoor and outdoor spaces, creating a huge living area and a strong sense

of spacious luxury. Folding doors have been added to offer stylish entrances and offer benefits during the changing seasons. Doubleglazed windows in the apartments also help to provide better insulation from the heat. The development’s residential high-rise architecture is simple, yet impactful, allowing all three towers to come together harmoniously via a centralised, elevated deck. Both the linearity and minimum distances of 25 metres between blocks have been adhered to as stipulated by the master planning guidelines. At ground level, lushly planted landscaped squares act as a buffer between the commercial street and the internal residential courtyards. The façade is an elegant take on the imagery of river rocks. Both textured and reflective, it resembles the ever-changing movement of the river and sky as if having a continuing dialogue. Natural airflow is provided to common

corridors via opening slots in the façade’s massing. Towers are orientated generally long side in a North-South direction, passively preventing the heating of units by direct sunlight penetration in the East-West direction. By tilting each individual unit, the sightlines towards the Saigon River have also been further improved. A range of extensive wellness amenities has been specifically designed for residents’ physical and mental health. These include a sculpture garden, infinity river-view lap pool, an outdoor Jacuzzi, floating massage pavilion, sunbathing deck, kids’ water park, outdoor playground, barbecue garden and pool-side gymnasium. Showing meticulous attention to quality and detail, SonKim Land has carefully chosen each and every element and accessory for The Galleria Residences, from building materials right through to appliance brands, ensuring a premium lifestyle for its residents.

The two following awardwinning projects are prime examples of the company’s expertise. Roza Rossa is a modern, uniquely designed apartment complex and boutique hotel. Located in Khamovniki, one of the most tranquil and convenient neighbourhoods in central Moscow, it is the first truly original project in Moscow real estate. The complex has been completely conceived by the world-renowned Italian architect and designer Piero Lissoni. Everything from the architecture to the furniture has been designed in a contemporary European minimalist style. It ranks among the iconic projects of theatres, hotels and residences developed by the Lissoni Associati bureau.

2019-2020

The development has 120 apartments for permanent living on the left and right wings of the main building with separate entrances and lobbies. The central part contains the boutique hotel with 90 rooms run by the prestigious hotelier Metropol Moscow. This means that the owners of the apartments can enjoy the peace and seclusion of their own homes while also utilising the hotel’s infrastructure and roundthe-clock services. The first floor will house boutiques, restaurants and bars, a spacious spa area with a swimming pool and gym and meeting rooms. Homeowners will be able to access their apartments via the hotel’s main entrance as well as via separate entranceways with their own lobbies and lounge areas. The building will also have an underground parking garage with areas for technical vehicles, bicycles and motorcycles.

Kuznetsky Most 12 by Lalique

Kuznetsky Most 12 by Lalique is a meticulous renovation project being carried out by KR Properties in collaboration with the world-renowned French brand. This union is unprecedented, not only for the Russian real estate market but also worldwide. Lalique’s crystal creations will beautify the entranceways, lifts, staircases, residential floor galleries and the apartments’ bathrooms. Located in the midst of Moscow City, the building is distinguished not only by its exquisite façade which is reminiscent of Renaissance-era Italy but also the handmade stucco decoration of its interiors. The decorated arches and columns of the central gallery, including garlands and curving fixtures that crown the cornices, have all been perfectly preserved. Renovated reliefs and plafonds, framed doors and mirrors, fireplaces, wrought-

iron staircases and balcony enclosures will beautify the reinvented commercial spaces, lobbies and apartments. The historic façade on Pushechnaya Street has already been completely restored, while the other façade on Kuznetsky Most Street is still being worked upon. The restoration project will also include a revival of the building’s interior architecture such as dismantling mezzanines and superstructures that appeared during the Soviet period. This will enable the historical atrium and its stucco moulding to be displayed in their full beauty. This iconic building, which long served as a centre of aristocracy and celebrities in the 19th century, will soon be reborn with 61 luxurious apartments and penthouses, with fashion galleries, a fine dining restaurant and French café on the lower floors.

characteristics. Its main attraction is a spiral tower which recalls ancient architectures and allows natural light to reach the interiors, providing natural air ventilation and good sound insulation. The other buildings, furnishings and surroundings have then become part of a unified, interrelated composition.

-  Waterfall by Waterfall Management Company is the largest mixed-use development in Africa and largest property development in South Africa. It will ultimately combine over 28,000 residential units with approximately 2.5 million square metres of GLA for commercial, retail and office space. Located on a 2,200-hectare tract of land in Gauteng, Waterfall is extraordinary in the sense that it is a ‘greenfield’ development, unaffected by the constraints of older developments and existing infrastructure. This 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, all within the development’s secure perimeter. With both a hospital and a cemetery on site, Waterfall is literally a ‘cradle-to-grave’ development, where a community of diverse individuals can live, work and play in an environmentally conscious and technologically advanced haven. The development’s aim from its outset 26 years ago was to raise the benchmark for urban design on both a local and international level and to remain on the forefront of innovation. Having been named the World’s Best Mixed-Use Development for the last three years, it seems as if Waterfall is achieving this goal.

Its iconic Business Tower, at 413 metres high, remains the tallest tower and a modern landmark of timeless elegance in Kuwait. Designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP, the Tower is a recipient of 10 international awards, including an impressive trio of world records for the tallest carved concrete tower, first asymmetrical skyscraper; and tallest stone cladded tower. The design inspiration for its stunning asymmetrical form came from a desire to maximise the views of the Arabian Gulf, while minimising solar heat gain.

Calling to mind the traditional robes worn by Kuwaitis, the tower is an iconic symbol of contemporary Kuwait, heralding a new era of development and prosperity in the country. Like an enshrouded figure with its delicate glass veil, the apex of the tower with its carved flared walls depicts a continuation of the sculptural form infinitely upward. The results reveal a rich, monolithic stone at the south wall framed by the graceful, twisting ribbons of torque walls, which define the iconic form of the tower. Al Hamra Business Tower has created a modern office space environment specifically designed to meet the highest international standards, revolutionising the way work is executed in the new age and forming ‘the’ business hub par excellence in Kuwait.

KCG R E in the Czech Republic has snapped up four awards for its Bořislavka Centrum development and architecture. Founded in 2012, KKCG was established for the purpose of ensuring effective management of the group’s remarkable real estate projects. Bořislavka Centrum is situated in a prime location of Prague 6, on Evropská Avenue, which sees an influx of visitors. Acting as a link between the city centre and the Vaclav Havel International Airport, the avenue passes the prestigious districts of Hanspaulka, Střešovice and Ořechovka. Due to the higher altitude, the site offers visitors beautiful views of Prague Castle and the nearby city centre.

The design by Aulík Fišer Architekti took on board its client’s idea of having a functional architectural development that would be fully accessible and permeable to pedestrian traffic and would also fit in with the existing buildings in the vicinity. The structure is visually appealing as it looks like crystals scattered across a landscape, which makes up a significant use of the green space. Within this luxe development you’ll find a fine dining restaurant on the upper floor, a supermarket, a shopping mall with a host of things to see and buy, a main lobby featuring a light sculpture from Lasvit, beautifully landscaped interior gardens, as well as a café and piazetta for visitors to lounge the day away.

The appearance and texture of the project’s façade is enhanced through the use of metal plates and stone which has been perfectly integrated with the vertical greening. Every unit has a fabulous view and, in turn, also provides a beautiful scene to the surrounding properties across the changing seasons. All these important factors have combined to make The One Sky Villa become the top green building environmental protection community in Nanjing.

Its award-winning project Pearl Sea Caves Villas is an exclusive development of nine villas in Paphos with breathtaking views over the Mediterranean. Surrounded by olive trees and natural scenery, it comprises seven five-bedroom split villas and two six-bedroom two level villas. A study to determine the development’s positioning ensured that all villas benefitted from an unobstructed sea view and that no other residence will mar the view now or in the future. One of these properties, Pearl Sea Caves Villa 7, has won two awards, adding to Island Blue’s already impressive portfolio of winning

projects. It belongs to a couple with three children who approached Island Blue with specific requirements for their home. Shared family spaces, indoors and outdoors, were of great importance to them. The clients’ brief was 100% achieved throughout the property. A swimming pool was placed within close proximity and in full view of the covered veranda, while an exquisite flower bed fuses the home with its natural surroundings. Although an open plan concept was the main focus during the design process, a feature fireplace and TV unit has been created to separate the kitchen/ family room from the dining area. This adds a touch of privacy yet still maintains the clients’ favoured open living spaces.

Its design concept stems from the concept of the flower, Morning Glory.

The funnellike shape of the 31-storey building means it maximises natural sunlight and wind flow for

better ventilation. Its elegant glass curtainwall also allows daylight into the interiors and minimises energy loss as well as heat absorption. On entering the office lobby, its 8.7 metre high ceiling and tall bamboo plants create an impressive sense of openness and space. One Hennessy provides office accommodation across 21 floors, complemented by 24,500 square feet of retail space and amenities – all for rent.

Masingita Towers is a contemporary, urban styled, signature apartment project with its top lofts and penthouses on the 15th floor prominently placed on the magnificent horizon of the Sandton highveld skyline. Consisting of 174 units with a full range of amenities and services, the building’s sculpted form was designed from the inside out. The generous outward facing bedrooms and living rooms were then further refined through a sculptural exterior skin layered in sun screens, expansive glass, stone cladding and aluminium framed window walls.

The Masingita Mall project required a 30,000m² extension to the existing centre, totalling the GLA at 42,000m². On completion, it will be the largest shopping centre in the Mopani District. Its architectural design is rooted in nature and the landscape. Inspiration was drawn from the trees and the shaded canopies they create. This is evident through the mall’s sweeping roof emulating the tree tops with structural columns representing tree trunks. The theme is carried through the interiors of the mall where diffused natural light, as if through a tree canopy, enhances the shopping experience. Visually linking the interior and exterior spaces, an al-fresco dining area covered by a curved roof stretches out towards the edge of a natural riverine. This further engages nature and softens the boundaries between the mall and its surroundings.

A restaurant overlooking Plac Zamkowy square occupies part of the ground floor and first floor. Classical windows resembling those in the neighbouring buildings have been put in the plastered walls on the first and second floor. The ground floor has been finished off with stone plates from shell limestone, while the upper floors have been tiled with fine granular plaster.

Each parcel is intended to attract different users at various times of day, appealing to a wide range of people and extending the active hours of the mixed-use project. With its more than 600,000m² of construction on a plot of 250,000m², this visionary project represents one of the most impressive urban rescues of deteriorating areas in the southeast of the country. What used to be an abandoned industrial area is

now a living ecosystem, with beautiful lakes, gardens and other essential amenities for a tranquil lifestyle. The development will contain a combination of high-rise, mid-rise and low-rise buildings; a series of signature open spaces; and a system of both vehicular and pedestrianised streets to link the varied uses within the master plan and connect the project to its existing context. The integration of retail, dining, entertainment, office, hospitality, institutional and residential uses will create a new hub of activity for the bustling city. At the heart of the project is a large water feature which will act as a unifying element and central amenity for both residents and visitors to enjoy. Without doubt, Via Montejo will become a destination attraction with an unambiguous sense of community.

Damansara Avenue Sales Gallery is a multifunctional space that can be used to showcase the development and other product launches by TA Global. Prior to its transformation, the building was a dark and disconnected space. Now completely redesigned with luxury to the fore, its interior is furnished with high-end finishing in order to host the selected potential clientele viewing Damansara Avenue. Ativo Suites @ Damansara Avenue is the second residential phase of the Damansara Avenue master plan which aims to create the new city centre of Petaling Jaya. Its marketing plan is to develop and elevate the project’s brand image as the crème de la crème of local

property developments. The entire marketing blueprint has been backed by thorough research and consideration and proved highly effective in identifying, reaching out and staying engaged with the right target audience. It has also driven quality interest and ultimately translated it into sales. Ativo Suites Type F is a spacious condominium unit with a unique dualkey concept. This allows for flexible living and caters for multi-generational families, professionals and prospective property investors. Inspiration for its interior design was taken from the motto ‘classic is the new modern’. The colour and material palette echoes an old-new contrast – with time-tested materials such as wood and brass accents making the overall aesthetic appear richer despite its simplicity.

   Channel Islands, Comprop is a leading privately-owned property developer of both commercial and residential sites in Jersey and Guernsey. The company has won two awards for its Havelet Waters project located on the southernmost end of the St Peter Port sea frontage in Guernsey. Comprop’s aim was to create a combination of one, two and three-bedroom apartments of a very high-quality relative to the Guernsey housing market. The final design consists of 34 apartments that are one or two-bedroom with at least one parking space for each unit, arranged around shared open spaces that maximise the potential of harbour views. The steep hillside site was about two thirds covered by a 1960’s semi-industrial concrete framed structure that contained the working part of a former brewery. This was demolished

and replaced with a new contemporary building. The remaining area had a traditional Georgian building (originally the brewery office), which was also demolished and a new building constructed to precisely replicate the original. This reused many of its features which had been carefully removed and retained to be incorporated into the new development. The concept, scale, massing and detailing of Havelet Waters have set a new benchmark in contextual design along the St Peter Port seafront. The variety of external styles, whether Georgian, contemporary or warehouse/semiindustrial are reflected in different interior design styles so that the external character follows through to the interiors. This gives the development a unique character that stands it apart from anything else on the Guernsey property market.

The following award-winning projects are prime examples. SkyMeridien is a modern recreational residence in Kuala Lumpur, designed for urban convenience and sky-high resort living. It features two towers of 38 and 39 storeys respectively, both resting on eight storey podiums which incorporate the lobby and arrival level.

Serviced residential units total 366 per tower and range from single to family scale and are designed for maximum flexibility of use. The Valleys is phase 1 of SkySierra mixeduse development in the heart of Setiawangsa, Kuala Lumpur. It comprises three towers of diverse heights soaring skywards as a metaphoric response to the nearby Titiwangsa mountain range.

  , Inarc Design Hong Kong is a quality-driven design consultancy specialising in both interiors and architecture. The company has won an impressive ten awards for its project ‘The Owners with Kids Box, STRC, The Hong Kong Jockey Club’. Ultimately, the client’s goal was to provide a ‘first of its kind’ dining venue at the racecourse specifically designed for horse owners’ children. The design challenges were both complex and numerous as the existing space had little natural daylight or external views. Hence, throughout the concept, Inarc focused on the suitability of materials, colours, lighting and shapes in order to enhance the overall experience. The new dining venue had to accommodate approximately 200 guests and include an open

as well as a semi-private dining environment, betting facilities, a large buffet area, a fully selfcontained kitchen and access to a new viewing terrace – all within a special child-friendly interior environment. Therefore, the vision for the interior design solution was inspired by the colours and shapes that generally evoke fun with children. Moreover, child-friendly curved shapes were applied to the decorative semiprivacy screens and special lighting fixtures. The kitchen design provides an ‘active’ food experience for patrons and their children with a number of standalone buffet counters and a large glass ‘picture’ window to observe the main food preparation area. Even the bathrooms have been created to exude a ‘magic forest’ appeal for children with onyx stone giving the illusion of height to the walls with its multi-coloured veins.

surroundings in Jakarta. The dedication in the research is therefore easy to see by way of the final design. Featuring a selection of houses, villas, apartments and low-rise commercial components, the ASYA project is family oriented meaning its central focus surrounds family ancestry. Using the family tree as a physical concept, various architectural elements, such as lighting and partition features were used to emulate the trickle and flow of the tree. Each space is structured with interconnecting components, warm lighting and soft textures to echo feelings of warmth and sentiment. These physical details weave and envelop the visitor within a comfortable

setting, reiterating the sense of familial protection and nurture. The Reception sculpture is a representation of a tree, simulating the concept of lineage, while openness to the exterior is maintained to enhance the transition from day to night of the interior and exterior space. The concept of nature is applied in the children’s playroom in a more figurative approach to create a playful space. The use of natural materials like stone and wood veneer not only feature the distinctive local Indonesian style, but they also create a cozy resort-looking atmosphere. Overall PTang Studio Limited has created a unique place to incorporate the very best for comfort and style.

The Arthouse Penthouse

19 Ringwood Road

D 2019-2020

 I  one of the leading design studios in the Asia Pacific region. Helmed by partners Nikki Hunt and Andrea Savage, the company’s work has garnered an international reputation for attention to detail, quality and creativity, winning numerous awards including the five latest accolades featured here. The property 19 Ringwood Road in Singapore belongs to a single mother with a teenage daughter and seven-year-old son. She wanted Design Intervention to build her a home that would grow with the family and provide a sanctuary and feeling of permanence. The design has been inspired by the client’s preference for modern neo-classical architecture and contemporary ranch style. However, the greatest influencing factor was the incorporation of the existing 1950’s art deco home which had become badly dilapidated. By adapting elements from these two styles, a successful fusion with the original property has been achieved.

With a penchant for cooking, the client wanted the kitchen at Ringwood to be spacious, uncluttered and dramatic. The open plan space flows seamlessly from the rest of the house with clean lines complemented by glamorous elements for a luxurious ambience. A key part of the brief was to create a light, airy aesthetic as the kitchen has no windows. Achieving this goal, the space feels welcoming for the children while meeting the demands of a professional chef when required for frequent entertaining. The Arthouse Penthouse in Singapore is home to a well-travelled, cosmopolitan couple approaching retirement. They wanted a home with a warm and welcoming vibe, free from ostentation that resonated with homely comfort rather than ‘haute design’. Both avid collectors of paintings, wine and objet d’art, Design Intervention has succeeded in integrating the couple’s collections seamlessly into their new home, avoiding any showy displays.

A Mid-Century Revival

Twelve Cupcakes

Taking eight months to complete, the interior has captured the clients’ personal style while becoming an urban sanctuary for the family. The apartment is modern, timeless and equipped with all the comforts a home should possess combined with that essential spark of intrigue and excitement. The clients’ brief for A Mid-Century Revival in Perth, Australia, was to imbue the family home with colour and warmth. They also wanted to emphasise the clean lines and timeless quality of the architecture whilst including their impressive art collection. As blue proved the dominant colour in their artworks, they wished to weave this colour into the design. Incorporating a space and bar was of utmost importance as the enjoy entertaining and also host many business-related events at their home. Throughout the house, large sliding doors dispel the barrier between the interior and exterior and invite the outdoors inside. Mid-century motifs were featured in the

design to add drama and inject vibrant colour whilst still achieving a crisp visual appeal and facilitating a seamless transition between the indoors and outdoors. Twelve Cupcakes is a Singaporean brand with a steady stream of shops around the City State. Its new retail store at Universal Studios Resorts World on Sentosa Island was to become the flagship outlet. The shopfront was not just for food but also to showcase the brand to an international audience as a springboard for expansion. The biggest challenge overcome by the design was accommodating the multitude of kitchen equipment, storage and display units as well as seating and serving patrons in just 378 square feet. Existing brick columns on the façade have been clad in a fun, bold graphic decal. This doubles as a pictorial menu and clearly conveys the message that ‘Twelve Cupcakes’ serves up far more than small cakes. A strong, geometric, asymmetric black and white pattern then flanks the clear glass doors.

For this particular master bath project, the clients wanted a luxurious space for complete relaxation. Customised designs tailored to their daily activities were required, including grooming facilities, a beverage centre and cabinetry with smart integrated storage. A steam shower with chromotherapy, aromatherapy, and ergonomic seating was a must, not only for sheer pleasure but for health benefits, too. There was also a need for an adjoining shower with high-quality plumbing fixtures, which

was as a direct result of the clients sharing a love for health and wellness properties. Custom cabinetry featured trash pull-outs, along with internal drawers and a grooming appliance storage cabinet.

The brief was to develop something that embodied Cibrian’s aspirations, and sense of escapism through its architectural design and interiors. The resulting effect was a substantial, five-storey residence, nestled within the 20-metre deep cliffs. One of the outstanding features of the property is the fabulous views facing out towards a duo of volcanoes and lush green golf course. Exquisite finishes and an eclectic

art collection give this property its awardwinning characteristics. The company also scooped a second award for Casa Valencia, commissioned by Pueblas State University. The brief here was to create a property for its annual raffle to raise student funding. The challenge was to build and fully furnish the family residence, based in Mexico’s Puebla, within a tight schedule of just four months. In a fine balance of form and functionality, Cibrian came up with a design featuring large interconnecting shapes that create volume and something that maximised the potential of this corner plot. Nordic styling is reflected throughout the interiors using a blend of different wood tones and neutral colour palette.

Mariam El Alaoui

Khanshara Street, Dumas Building Mar Mikhael - Nahr Beirut 1100, Lebanon

 E A, an awardwinning interior designer based in Beirut, Lebanon, was commissioned to transform RN Residence, an apartment belonging to a couple with two young daughters. Her motto is: Our mission is to positively influence the lives of our customers by shaping their spaces with timeless designs and gracing their homes with the style, sophistication, elegance and warmth that capture the essence of their personalities. The brief was to create a timelessly stylish, luxurious and functional living area which would fully utilise the available space for both the family and entertaining on a large scale. Although the couple have very different style preferences, some commonalities emerged that helped the design process.

Drawing inspiration from their personalities and lifestyle, a concept of ‘where two opposites meet’ evolved. This emphasises contrast, intersection, interlocking connection, pairing and symmetry across all furniture, textiles and materials. Being a believer that an interior is the natural projection of the soul, the resultant design naturally features a graceful combination of interconnected spaces that progress seamlessly from the television area to the main entertaining area and finally to the dining area. Neutral tones have been used to allow the finer details of the furniture and metal elements to shine through while also enabling Mariam El Alaoui to be creative with textures and patterns. Light and bright walls also prove more reflective, making the space feel open and airy and maximising the natural light.

Believing that interiors are much more than being just about space, the design specialist uses a creative approach to accentuate client personality. The firm’s award-winning interior design for the General Secretariat of the Cabinet in Dubai is a design triumph, reflecting traditional local heritage and modern cultural diversity. Feng Shui influences are portrayed in the work space design, channelling positive energy throughout the building. Commissioned patriarchal artworks customise the décor, whilst the use of industrial materials modernise the design. Exotic plants, strawberry shoots, colourful

fixtures and patterns add a sense of playfulness. An installation of a preserved tree with mirrors above and below, symbolising infinite reflection, sits as a central focal point, signifying the growth and development of the United Arab Emirates. All the while the design retains a corporate vibe throughout. The executive wing uses a rich mix of material finishes with opulent marbles, natural wood and clean lines to create comfortable Majlis lounges within the work space. On the other side of the building, general staff areas are contrasted with a more contemporary, industrial, playful design. The use of multi-coloured accents and zoning is combined to create an open and creative atmosphere, accentuated by a tropical lounge, surrounded by exotic plants.

One such project is the award-winning Sattva House in Jor Bagh, New Delhi, created to the home owner’s exact specifications. The client sought to create an ambient space that would incorporate the philosophy of ‘Sattva,’ which in Sanskrit means light, goodness and purity. The 3-bedroom abode’s contemporary style is uncluttered and minimalistic, and following a holistic treatment, the client adopted lifestyle and postural changes for wellness. This is evident in his request for low level seating that would allow him to comfortably sit in the lotus position.

Owing to Delhi’s temperamental weather conditions, the design had to cater more-so to the hotter climate. Fortunately, the secondfloor apartment faces a garden that has shade giving trees, while energy-conserving air conditioners and ceiling fans are dotted across the interior. Beautifully handcrafted Oakwood furniture was carefully customised and strategically placed, freeing the central space for movement, while storage solutions were wall-stacked to allow for space continuity. In keeping with the minimalistic design, the palette chosen includes pastels and a variety of pared-back accented patterns and tones. Botticino flooring and sans rugs create a visual fluidity, while a teak wood door and window frames further accentuate the sense of being rooted to earth. Overall, the attention to detail makes this residence one for the books.

 L P is a multi-awardwinning boutique real estate agency based in Hong Kong specialising in promoting overseas developments. It is appointed as the exclusive sales and marketing consultant to premium international developers looking to increase their brand awareness and to generate business leads and sales through tailor-made localised advertising campaigns. By identifying auspicious markets abroad, it assists buyers in building their international property portfolio. This agency liaison allows Jade Land to act as a direct intermediary between prospective purchasers and developers. The company assures that their purchaser’s assets are secure by continuously providing updates on the construction progress and coordinating with overseas agencies for the future sale and leasing arrangement.

This year, Jade Land implemented a holistic marketing campaign for two Malaysian developments, Alila2 and YOO8 Serviced by Kempinski. Their objective was to educate the public on the market potential of this initially lesser-known location, rather than simply highlighting the features of the development. An innovative mix of contemporary, traditional and digital marketing tools were employed to attract foot traffic to public exhibitions, investment seminars and cocktail and dinner showcases. The company’s consistent visibility on multiple marketing platforms, such as television, radio, print, social media and online portals, greatly contributed to generating brand awareness, interest and confidence in both the development and the developer. Creating a demand for Malaysian properties paves the way for future projects to come.
