Travel opens our eyes and gives us greater insight into

the world, as well as into other cultures. Couple that with prime properties for sale and you’ll have a melting pot of elements that you’ll be tempted by.

Luckily for us, we get to consult property professionals

and delve a little deeper into areas around the world

where, if you’re like me, you’d would love to call home. Turning our attention

to Canada, with its incredible outdoor wonders, famed natural beauty and a

diversified culture like no other, it is easy to see why many people flock there. Some of the country’s most luxurious properties have majestic staircases, high ceilings and all the mod cons you could ever wish for.

We also explore Austria, with its snow-capped mountains, crystal clear

lakes and gorgeous alpine villages. Not surprisingly, there has been a 30% increase in interested clients coming from around the world to invest and live

in the city. If that’s not enough to get you packing your bags, the country’s healthcare system and international schools are top notch.

Staying on the stunning-landscape theme, this issue also focuses on

New Zealand, with its picturesque views that take centre stage. While this beautiful country features ideal backdrops for the most discerning

of property investors, a garden tops many people’s lists of dream house elements. Therefore we have included an interview with renowned garden designer Randle Siddeley about his eye-catching designs.

Last but not least, we are delighted to feature some of London’s historic

conversions, from Victorian warehouses to an iconic disused power station.

Piece of London’s History a

From Victorian warehouses and factories, to former churches and even an iconic disused power station, London is home to a plethora of properties ripe for conversion, as well as those already converted.

he journey from life as an industrial building to becoming a warm and welcoming home is often not straightforward. Six London estate agents talk us through what makes these eclectic properties attractive to buyers, and what developers and potential homeowners alike need to take into consideration before taking the plunge. “London is a city very much in touch with its history, and a large proportion of that history is read through its buildings” says James Klonaris from The Modern House. “Many of our clients think of themselves as custodians of historic buildings rather than owners, and I would argue that we experience a greater connectivity to our surroundings when we live harmoniously with the past. Spatially and materially, lots of historic buildings offer a scale, grandeur and means of construction that would no longer be financially viable today.” Simon Murphy, CEO of Battersea Power Station Development Company agrees: “Historic conversions, like Battersea Power Station, offer so much more than simply a place to live – they offer a chance to buy a slice of British history.” Joseph Bate, sales manager at Johns&Co told us “Buyers are drawn to properties which have a unique or interesting story behind them. Historic properties that have been sensitively restored or transformed often have a number of unusual characteristics or quirky features and these help them stand out from the crowd and attract buyers who are looking for something different.”

Battersea Power Station

Battersea Power Station is a Grade II listed building on the banks of the River Thames. It is one of the largest brick buildings in the world and is at the centre of one of the largest regeneration projects in Europe. Simon Murphy, CEO of Battersea Power Station Development Company told us, “Battersea Power Station is one of London’s most loved landmarks. Through sensitively restoring it, our specialist architects have been able to retain much of the original

St Dunstans Wharf St Dunstans Wharf is a Grade II listed conversion which dates back to 1878. This stunning threebedroom property offers a rare slice of East London history. This former warehouse was previously used to house straw, hay and even juniper berries for gin making. The property currently comprises three king-size bedrooms,

Developers of course have to think carefully before embarking on any conversion project and that commitment does not stop there. Giles Barrett, head of sales at Domus Nova states: “Buyers need to be aware that certain planning regulations will need to be adhered to if looking to make design changes in the future. This often means working with planning consultants or architects who have specialist experience with listed or historic properties and spaces that are not originally designed to be residential homes. The interior design should also be afforded considerable thought to turn these properties into inviting homes.” Eddi Matthiasson from Williams Lynch agrees and says there are important considerations to bear in mind: “To make sure ceiling heights are not compromised by inappropriate mezzanines for example, ensuring windows are fully exposed and being conscious of light, because many of these buildings were warehouses with small windows so they need to be clever with the shape and sizes of these.” Solly Strickland from Nest Seekers International told us, “People love authenticity and developers are starting to see that. In the last two to three years I have seen developers realise that the heritage of a building can enhance the price points that they are hoping to achieve.” As for the market – things appear to be going well, Eddi says: “Authenticity and escapism, that is loft living in a nutshell and we are seeing impressive interest in our lofts for this reason.”

Giles Barrett from Domus Nova explains, “Kenmont Gardens frames modern furnishings with grand arches and rounded windows that draw in a huge amount of natural light.

Renovated by Chris Dyson Architects, the internal accommodation approaches 4,000 sq. ft. over five levels, including a substantial roof terrace. The design breathes new life into the building’s industrial past. Combining concrete, black steel and exposed brickwork, the architects have created a home that is at once versatile, warm and aesthetically arresting.

London Marriott

County Hall Hotel A perfectly located hotel steeped in history


et on the banks of the River Thames with astounding views, this Grade II listed building was the former offices of the London County Council. The council was established in 1889 and previously occupied a site in St. James’s. Work began on this new building in 1909. Original construction was temporarily halted by the discovery of a Roman ship, which is now housed in the Museum of London. The offices were eventually officially opened in 1922 by King George V and Queen Mary. Once the council moved out in 1986, the building lay empty for a time, but after extensive refurbishment, The London Marriott County Hall opened for business in 1998. Today the hotel continues to provide guests with stunning views of the London Eye, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, and Westminster Bridge. Among the amenities on offer, there is a pool, a bar serving 100 gins, and the beautiful Library serving afternoon tea.

INIGO HOMES The team behind UK based estate agency The Modern House have announced the launch of a new agency specialising in historic homes: Inigo. The company, whose first listings will go live this spring, is named after Inigo Jones, the 17th century architect who sparked a revolution in British building design. They aim to adopt Jones’ pioneering spirit, matching this with a deep admiration of beautiful homes and a wealth of specialist knowledge. Founders of The Modern House and Inigo, Matt Gibberd and Albert Hill say: “The Modern House was founded on the idea that good domestic design has a positive impact on our lives. We both grew up in centuries-old houses, and have first-hand experience of the spatial and decorative quality of buildings from the Georgian era, in particular. Inigo is a logical extension to what we’re already doing, with shared core values, a strong editorial point of view and a personal approach to service.”

Chief Operating Officer Bond Wolfe Auctions has appointed a new chief operating officer. Sue Randell has been promoted from operations and marketing director to COO at the fast-expanding UK auction business. Sue first started in the business as an office junior in 1992, and worked her way up the residential

The L ord Kenilworth

RANDLE SIDDELEY The renowned garden designer tells us what inspires him from the past, and what the future holds


Lord Kenilworth.indd 1

25/02/2021 14:50


andle Siddeley, The Lord Kenilworth, founded his design business, which also takes his name, in 1975. Now described as a ‘leading landscape architecture, construction and maintenance company’ he has spent the last 45 years, designing bespoke gardens and installations not only for some of the most discerning of private households, but also for important public spaces around the world. With a seemingly unending passion and flair for outdoor design, today he is as busy as ever, but what has changed over those 45 years, and who has influenced him in his impressive body of work?

The Garden Before & After, Published by Papadakis

Randle’s father John Siddeley was an interior designer who worked on the Harlequin Suite at the Dorchester Hotel, the Park Lane Hotel in London’s Piccadilly and the Okura Hotel in Japan, as well as working on projects for English actor Peter Sellers. Randle says that he certainly drew inspiration from his father: “I grew up in the interior designing world, but my interest in gardening started as a child, so I always had it in my blood. In my late teens my father had a couple of projects that needed landscaping. I suggested to him that I could do that. I got involved, and he gave me freedom to do my own thing as opposed to being under his watchful eye.” Today Randle still loves getting involved in the design process. “Fortunately, I have a very good visual memory. So, I can walk into a space and come back to work, and I can imagine that space without actually referring to a picture. I think, ‘now I know how I’m going to start implementing

the initial structure of the garden.’ The whole design of the garden is there to bring joy, and then of course seeing the finished result at the end of the day, as well as having an exhilarated client.” His designs are wide ranging from the tidy symmetry of classical garden design to modern city gardens, huge rolling landscapes to planning open public realms. Does he have an identifiable style? “I generally want my clients to have ownership of how we reach the end product. So there’s not one particular style that I can pinpoint simply because everybody is so different.” In terms of Randle’s inspiration, it comes from not only his years of experience, but also learning from the client what their likes and dislikes are. Who then does he admire in the landscaping world? “There’s a lot of professional and creative people out there who I admire.” Historically speaking he says that he admires the work of Humphry Repton, an important 18th Century landscape gardener. “In Repton’s book, he shows

the before and afters, he does a sketch of what the garden or parkland looked like, and then you flip over the page, and you end up with what it is going to look like, a before and after.” So inspired was he that Randle now has his own book called The Garden, Before & After. It has gone on to win a number of awards, which he says is “very gratifying.” Randle acknowledges that much has changed in the 45 years since he started his business … “With the 3D drawings that you can do now, you can give everybody a pretty good understanding of what the space can look like.” Now, the projects are often international: “Over the last ten years I have been doing a lot of work in Hong Kong, to name just one country. One project in particular that I worked on was located in Discovery Bay which required me to design six different gardens.” Of course, travel has been impacted in the last twelve months “Everything is UK-based at the moment. I’ve got a project planned in Hampshire and there are lots of things that we’re doing in central London, too.” Randle it seems has plenty of energy, ideas and inspiration to continue designing for the foreseeable future, and to carry on innovating and adapting as he has so successfully all this time.

With zero clearance and vent-free technology, there are multiple benefits including ease of installation, greater flexibility in the fireplace location and fuel efficiency ratings near 99%. Unlike a direct vent fireplace, which vents to the outside and brings in combustion air to a sealed firebox, a vent-free option uses available room air to provide the oxygen necessary for combustion. This makes the H Series not only ideal for a house, but also condo, high-rises and small abodes. Price on application European Home t: +1 781 324 8383

Firelog Technology produces unparalleled, campfirelike flames. The real-fire appearance is achieved by allowing the gas to flow directly within the log media, resulting in a taller, more realistic flame. The fireplace media also creates a fuller flame, more closely resembling the traditional look and feel of a campfire. Price on application | Ortal Heat | t: +1 206 290 4431

Truly bespoke Plaza fireplaces are crafted with design flexibility in mind. By utilising innovative heat redistribution, a television, artwork, or mantel can be safely installed as low as eight inches above the fireplace. The company can place any finishing material right up to the opening of the fireplace, so there will be no need for non-combustible materials or special framing. Unobstructed views are possible thanks to the Plaza's unique venting configuration which allows for windows to be installed above the fireplace. The company also incorporates power vent technology, which means greater vent run lengths and the ability to vent down below the fireplace. Price on application Plaza Fireplace e:

nternationally famous for books including Fungus the Bogeyman, The Snowman and When the Wind Blows, this is remarkably the first ever exhibition devoted to Raymond Briggs. Briggs' talents included not only his storytelling that entranced both the adults who read his books and the children who were lucky enough to have them at bedtime, but wonderful drawings and paintings of the characters he was depicting. His books have sold millions of copies and several have been adapted for stage and screen most notably perhaps The Snowman, the animated version of which is screened annually at Christmas. Briggs once said that he illustrated the entirely wordless The Snowman as a clean and fresh antidote to the years "buried amongst muck, slime The touring exhibition is scheduled to open in Hampshire in April.

Despite his reputation as one of North America’s greatest 20th-century colourists, Milton Avery's

work has never been shown in Europe. Now however the Royal Academy hopes to present a selection of 70 of his most celebrated paintings from the 1930s – 1960s. The works typically feature scenes of daily life, including portraits of loved ones and serene landscapes from his visits to Maine and Cape Cod. Marvel in the colour sensibility and balance that runs throughout his work – a style that was to have a major influence on the next generation. It is a long overdue celebration of an American master who, in Marc Rothko’s words, celebrated the world around him with a poetry that “penetrated every pore of the canvas to the very last touch of the brush”. The show is scheduled for summer and the RA Milton Avery | Little Fox River | 1942 | Oil on canvas

Online shows become the norm cross the globe, museums have adapted to the new realities posed by the COVID pandemic. In many countries this means new lockdowns as governments battle to control infections. Many museums re-opened in the summer only to be forced to close again – one of the most important shows affected was Artemisia at the National Gallery which had an all too brief flowering but can still be seen online by members. Hundreds of virtual shows have taken the place of live events. Hopes are again being raised that vaccines will begin to enable the re-opening of our museums, in particular the smaller regional ones that cannot rely on well-heeled trustees.

Faced with building delays due to COVID, India's new Museum of Art & Photography (MAP) in Bangalore launched last December with a digital display of works from the sub-continent. MAP's digital platform now offers curated experiences allowing audiences to interact with exhibitions and events from home. The collection of over 18,000 artworks, predominantly from the subcontinent and dating from the 10th century to the present, is wide ranging, with tribal and folk art as well as contemporary and pre-modern works continually being acquired. Among the opening exhibitions which can still be seen online is Bhuri Bai: My Life as an Artist charting the life of the Bhil painter, muralist and illustrator whose lively visual vocabulary records her experiences and travels as a contemporary artist.

RARE PORTRAIT of cross-dresng king comes to light

A miniature bought 'unseen' during the 2020 lockdown and originally believed to be of Sir Walter Raleigh has proved to be a portrait of Henri III of France (1551-1589) and one of a very rare number of images of the king. Experts at Philip Mould were also excited to discover the signature Decourt when conservation work began. Jean De Court was an important French court artist of the mid 16th century, reputed to have painted both Mary, Queen of Scots and Elizabeth I. Henri III was a notorious cross-dresser who often wore elaborate dresses at jousts, banquets and in court. Courtiers who followed his eccentric style were said to resemble “whores of the brothels” with “their hair long, curled by artifice, with little bonnets of velvet on top of it. ... so their heads look like St John's on a platter” – a description that could equally be applied to the hairstyle of Henri in this miniature. The St John the Baptist gag turned out to be somewhat prescient. Henri was assassinated by a Catholic fanatic after 15 troubled years on the throne, his reputation for sodomy


was exploited by enemies and played a part in his demise.

A Modern Edge Fusing timeless tradition with a fresh sensibility, Nanas Design is the go-to design house for interiors that perfectly reflect its clients’ personalities


lipping through the portfolio of Nanas Design is like looking at an eclectic wonderland of interiors, and that is very much intentional. “We like to be chameleons,” explains director Mariko Konno. “Whenever we take on a new project, we always try to see things through the clients’ lens. This helps us understand their needs and wants, and better reflect their lifestyle.” Nanas Design was born in 2018 and is the brainchild of Mariko Konno and Saki Funayama. Both ladies have over a decade of experience in the property, design and construction industries. But it was not just their love for style that drew them together, it was also their shared experiences. “We both grew up outside of Japan and have been exposed to many different cultures and aesthetics throughout

Saki Funayama and Mariko Konno Nanas Design

our lives. This not only allows us to be more versatile, it also helps us draw from both Eastern and Western influences when we design,” says Saki. At first glance, the common thread that ties all of Nanas Designs professional work together might not be obvious. However, upon closer inspection, you will be able to see the influences of their Japanese heritage that has made the design firm such a powerhouse in their field. For one, they are known for their attention to detail, especially when it comes to craftsmanship. They also believe in efficiency and putting everything to good use. “Japanese people traditionally don’t like to

waste things, they would even cut up an old kimono and use it as coasters or wiping cloth,” shares Mariko. And last, but definitely not least, the concept of Kaizen is something they adhere to. It’s a Japanese philosophy that means ‘continuous improvements’. This ensures that their designs are always at the highest level and are able to withstand the test of both time and functionality. After all, at Nanas Design, where form goes, function must follow. Nanas Design Pte Ltd e:

ith every master bedroom, I like to juxtapose hard and soft goods. It is important to layer hard goods, including wood pieces, metal accents, art, accessories and furniture with soft goods, such as draperies, bedding, throw pillows, and upholstered furniture, to keep the room feeling soft, elegant, and comfortable. “I also like, no matter the style of the room, to integrate a sumptuous and luxurious feel in every master bedroom. It is also important to integrate art with soft colours when appropriate to denote a sense of relaxation.” »

Truly timeless

Michele Chagnon-Holbrook, Owner, Casabella Interiors he first thing to consider when designing a bedroom for high-end clients is how to create a timeless look that feels both soothing and sophisticated. Timeless finishes are essential to achieving this look; try to stay away from trendy finishes and gravitate to classic colours such as soft blues, greys, beige, and white. Consider the walls an opportunity to bring in something original such as creating custom wallpaper from a piece of artwork your client loves. Go bold with lighting, incorporate an oversized headboard, and use mirrors

to expand the sense of space. Let the nightstand be your source of bling by incorporating gorgeous hardware and different finishes such as mother of pearl. And, don’t forget the pillows which are excellent accent pieces. Michele also loves the power of texture. An essential part of good design is not just the furniture, accessories, and colours but also the layering of textures. The texture of a fabric can dramatically change the way a chair will feel when you sit in it and sensation is very important in a luxurious bedroom. Texture also provides a balance so you don’t have too much of one thing. When thinking about colour, Michele advises using soft neutrals for the bedroom, especially classic white in all of its simplicity layered with grey tones, or the spa-like soft blues. Bringing all of these considerations together – finishes, wall treatment, texture and colour – and keeping them in balance will result in a bedroom your client will never want to leave.

Comfort and Practicality

Super Midsized cabin jets offer a large comfortable cabin area and a longer range than their smaller cousins. The Challenger 350 from Bombardier accommodates up to 10 passengers and crew and has a range of 3,200NM. This world class aircraft offers an exceptionally smooth ride, extremely quiet large cabin with sound suppressing design, stylish finishes and a flat floor design.

stylish. The manufacturer points out the jet’s lower maintenance costs, afforded by longer maintenance intervals, and peace of mind offered through a reliable reputation. This comfortable, welcoming cabin, with its renowned craftsmanship and attention to detail, offers areas in which to work and to relax, and features air to ground passenger internet connection, a state-of-the-art cabin management system, a well-appointed galley, and many optional extras in specification and styling.

A Lasting Legacy

The advantage of a super midsized jet is that it not only offers plenty of room in which to walk, but there is also space for a galley and other essential facilities for passenger comfort mid-flight. When Embraer’s Legacy jets were announced, they revolutionised business aviation. Today the portfolio continues to evolve with the Praetor 600 taking the baton, but the Legacy 500 remains a leader in its class and a firm favourite of the private charter

and shared ownership industry. The Legacy 500 has a range of 3,125NM, a width of 6'10" and seating for up to 8 passengers. The jet is spacious, extremely quiet and adaptable to many locations thanks to a relatively short landing distance requirement. Embraer | t: +1 954 359 5387

ntario is Canada’s most populous province, where sunken ships, swimming caribou, endless forests, abundant wildlife and over 250,000 freshwater lakes await. It’s the provinces’ capital city of Toronto that takes centre stage though. According to Jerry Hammond, president and senior director of Hammond International Properties, “Toronto is one of North America’s largest cities, a thriving metropolis with a growing population which attracts many of North America’s largest companies. Canada relies on Toronto’s prosperity to fuel the economic engine. “Our diversification of culture, museums, restaurants, fashion, broadway shows, five-star hotels and walkability to major attractions is very unique for a city this size. Toronto has grown tremendously over the years and continues to increase our immigration year after year.” And there’s so much more... Elise Kalles, broker for Harvey Kalles Real Estate says, “From an investment standpoint, regional real estate has performed very well. Using the Toronto Regional Real Estate Board, the last 12 months have yielded a 11% return (15% for single detached) and historically speaking, if you bought real estate at any point in the last 50 years and held it for seven, it was worth more than your original purchase price. The market is secure and predictable.” “Buyers are a mix”, says Elise Kalles, and “Ontario’s capital city, Toronto, is a world-class destination with a strong construction sector. As such, immigration is high and certainly factors into the sales mix. There are more cranes operating in Toronto than in LA, NY, Chicago and San Francisco combined, with most units selling before construction starts. As such, this appeals to investors, regard» less of location.”

Jerry Hammond agrees on the diversification of buyers: “We have had many buyers from all over the world. Canada’s stability, natural beauty and acceptance and respect as well as a democratic and sound political system attract many people wanting to move to Toronto. Our most prominent buyers have been from Hong Kong, Mainland China, Russia, USA, Iran, Korea and the Middle East. In terms of the most popular features potential buyers gravitate to, it’s the “access to outdoor space,” says Elise Kalles. “Backyards, parks, and nature trails are more important than in years past, as people seek sanctuary from the city. We are working from home more regularly, so proximity to the urban centres has become less important than space for study and work.” Jerry Hammond adds, “Location is number one, with some areas being in higher demand based on the location and proximity to downtown and schools.” Just before packing your bags though, there is one thing that international buyers need to be made aware of. “International buyers will need a minimum 35% deposit to secure a mortgage with a local lending institution,” says Elise Kalles. And in terms of growth Jerry Hammond comments that “Toronto will continue to grow at the rapid pace which we have seen, our federal government has increased our immigration numbers and most will end up in the city of Toronto. We have lots of room to grow considering our overall land mass and being located on the southern border with the USA our largest trading partner.” Overall, this is one of the few places on the planet to offer such a brilliant mix of city glamour, natural splendours, top-notch museums, and beautifully-constructed homes.

he third largest and most westerly province in Canada, British Columbia is enveloped in pure, unadulterated natural beauty. The dense forests and stunning fjords, flowing rivers and mountain peaks are amongst the most beautiful in the world, so it is easy to see why investors are drawn to the province. Faith Wilson, founder of Faith Wilson Realty Group, affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate adds, “British Columbia offers wide appeal to many demographics. It is a diverse multicultural community that is accepting and ultimately speaks to many different lifestyle choices.” The province also has “many diverse and fascinating ecosystems. We have a vastly unique and sometimes rugged coastline, with temperate rain forests to the only desert in all of Canada, the Okanagan Desert. We have a thriving vineyard and winery economy in the Okanagan Valley and the world class ski resort Whistler-Blackcomb, as well as numerous other ski hills, three of which are merely half an hour away from downtown Vancouver. “From the Yukon in the north to the southern border just below Vancouver, we have it all, here in British Columbia. Clean air, clean water, good schools, nice people! Cosmopolitan with a low-key vibe, amazing food, which equates to fabulous restaurants in an array of price points.” In terms of areas within British Columbia that ultra-high net worth and high net worth individuals are drawn to, Vancouver Westside, West Vancouver, Whistler and the Okanagan are top choices, with budgets ranging from four to five million dollars and up to 20million, and beyond.

Realty says, “Vancouver as a whole offers a unique lifestyle opportunity bordering the ocean and mountain ranges. The ability to take advantage of the outdoors is rarefied. One is able to boat, sail, and take advantage of water sports year-round or indulge in skiing, hiking, walking and biking with all the local amenities. It offers a clean and healthy way of life with little crime and an ease of travel.” In terms of property features that buyers seek, Faith Wilson says it’s the “privacy, safety, views, house and lot size, quality of build, and all the bells and whistles” that are most popular. Jason Soprovich agrees to a certain extent, citing that “The most popular features buyers request usually revolve around some level of ocean, lake or mountain views, proximity to amenities, schooling, hiking trails or access to the water and parks as well as ease of travel and privacy.” If you are hesitant about the future prospects of the British Columbia property market, Jason Soprovich is here to dismiss any doubts. “Having entered this new era of Covid-19, we became an essential service. There have been very few foreign investors entering our real estate market over the past ten months although inquiries have increased significantly abroad. The majority of purchases have been from local buyers. There has been a significant movement of activity in sales at all price levels up to and beyond the $20-million-dollar threshold. Our markets have stabilised and will continue to progress positively for the foreseeable future. This will be enhanced due to incredibly low interest rates and a lack of inventory.” As a destination for tourism and immigration for people all over the world, it is one of the most sought-after regions of Canada to call home.

s the largest province in Canada, Québec plays host to some of the country’s most beautiful countryside. “Québec is steeped in history,” says Christina Miller, real estate broker for Profusion Immobilier. “This has created a multi-cultural province noted for its vibrant world-class cultural scene and entrepreneurial development.” Carl Rémillard Fontaine who is also a real estate broker at Profusion Immobilier adds, “Québec has long been recognised for its breathtaking natural landscapes, its rich and inclusive cultural scene as well as its rapidly growing economy. With both European and American heritage, Québec charms the world with the warmth, simplicity and kindness of its people and quality of life it offers. Open to the world, particularly in terms of education, technology and innovation, the province has it all.” Montréal and Québec City are two bustling metropolises that are perfect areas to settle within Québec. Christina Miller agrees: “Montreal and Québec City are the places that attract high net worth investors who come here to take advantage of attractive real estate opportunities. Old Montreal and Le Vieux-Québec have seen steady foreign investment over the last twenty years, with properties being bought as ‘pied-à-terre’ or as rental properties for people who flock to both those cities to work, study or soak in their rich cultures.” When it comes to investors, “There is a higher proportion of local ownership in cities like Montreal and Québec,” says Christina. “Foreign ownership has been climbing steadily due to Chinese and European immigration, particularly » over the last 7-10 years.”

Carl also provides his insight: “We’ve noticed an increase in the proportion of buyers from other Canadian provinces, as they are in lockdown, mostly working from home and looking for space and quality of life. I’ve had clients from Toronto recently buying a luxury condo without being able to visit it – they fully trusted the current Montreal Real Estate Market and knew it was the right time to invest. Overall, the real estate market in Québec experienced a record year in 2020.” A luxurious home is one whose amenities allow for the owner to feel lavished upon or spoiled. Christina states that “Nice kitchens, and bathrooms are always a priority for buyers and our high net worth buyers really insist on having heated garages!” Carl comments that it is definitely a mix of indoor and outdoor space. “Before the pandemic several buyers prioritised location, however with the current lockdown and the reality of working from home, buyers are reviewing their needs and looking for space. I often have clients who are selling their property and looking for larger houses since they now need home offices.” Future prospects for the property market in Québec look promising. “I am a firm believer that the Québec real estate market is still a very affordable investment,” says Christina. “Geography is an advantage with these great cities being an easy flight – I am bullish on our province and have continued to invest in it myself – I believe prices will continue to rise.” “For the luxury real estate market, many Canadian and foreign investors are looking to Montreal and Québec City, as prices are more affordable than in Toronto, Vancouver, New York or any other major North American city.”

ustria is a land blessed with the most beautiful snow-capped mountains, crystal clear lakes, pretty alpine villages and incredible historic architecture. What is it like to live here though? What draws people in? We spoke to Alex Koch de Gooryend from Knight Frank’s International department: “When we first started working in Vienna, a lot of people were looking at it from a lifestyle perspective: the cultural elements of the city, the huge number of art galleries and theatres. It’s a fairly small city so you can walk everywhere and it’s very safe and secure. The market has changed a little bit over the years – now we are beginning to see more people coming over and looking at it as an area for potential relocation.” Richard Buxbaum, head of residential real estate from Otto Immobilien, (Associate Partner of Knight Frank in Vienna) told us, “One of the most important things during the last 9 to 12 months has been the extraordinary healthcare system, and I think the combination of great education provided by the international schools in Vienna, and our health system will bring in more and more international clients.” Richard says that over the last nine months he has seen a “30% increase in interested clients coming from around the world to invest and live in the city.” Away from the capital, for some it’s the lure of the mountains which beckons – Johnny Cartwright from Savills Ski told us “Zell am See, Kitzbuhel, Lech, St Anton and Obergurgl are popular locations. There is a big demand for Austrian resorts from Germany, the Czech Republic and other Eastern European countries such as Hungary and Slovenia. Zell am See and Kitzbuhel are dual season, so they are busy all year round. Lech, St Anton and Ischgl have been more winter locations as they are high altitude resorts and very snow-sure, however, Lech is now

becoming much more popular in the summer as it has opened a new golf course.” The call of the mountains is self-evident but Johnny explained the added draws – “There’s beautiful scenery and a good climate all year round. Austria is a clean and efficient country. Hotels and restaurants are all very welcoming to their guests.” Evelyn Hendrich from Hendrich Real Estate guided us further around this beautiful country and back towards the cities, “Vienna, as the capital, is known for its high quality of life and has been voted as the most liveable city of the world several times in a row (according to the Mercer Study). As well as its international schools and excellent healthcare system, Vienna offers a vibrant cultural life, and is known for its wonderful cuisine. It is a beautiful city full of historical buildings from all periods, surrounded by lovely green landscapes. Vienna is known to be a safe city and is a society hotspot. Then Salzburg, for example offers a variety of those same qualities, but it is best known for the summer festival where, for six weeks in the summer, people can enjoy a rich cultural and social life. Even close to the cities we have lakes, woods, mountains, vineyards.

Leisure activities in spring and summer range from swimming, sailing, tennis, golf, hunting, mountain climbing, hiking, biking, summer festivals all over the country, beach volleyball, horseback riding tournaments and many more.”

Properties in high demand

Evelyn says, “International clients are looking for apartments, mansions, chalets and castles in Austria´s prime locations. They ask for the bedrooms to feature en suite bathrooms and walk-in closets. A wellness area with sauna and steam bath is often requested. A spacious garage and quarters to accommodate staff is desirable, too.” In the mountains, Johnny says that people are looking for “Privacy, views, accessibility to the mountain, as well as accessibility to the towns.”


“Everyone who comes to Vienna, stays in Vienna,” says Richard. “They move their families first and then their businesses. We have a lot of international headquarters in Vienna. Some people establish businesses here and some return, having made their money elsewhere because they see it’s an interesting city in which to live.” Richard’s colleague Martina Gruber who is head of international network management with Otto Immobilien states, “There are two kinds of clients – those who would like to live here and those who would like to invest, maybe to come to Vienna later when they are retired or in another situation. They differ between originally looking for apartments to invest in, but when they come to live here, they prefer apartments in old buildings or old villas because they like the Viennese tradition and the Viennese charm.” Austria it seems has plenty of charm, no matter which area you search in.

Immerse yourself in New Zealand’s stunning landscapes and unique wildlife. Become enveloped in its rich Maori culture when you choose to purchase a property in Auckland, Bay of Plenty or Wellington


ew Zealand is a remote and geologically dynamic country abounding in vibrant cultural and culinary experiences. For those seeking the perfect area for investment, Tauranga in the Bay of Plenty is steeped in appeal. Jason Eves and Cameron Winter, founders of Oliver Road Estate Agents, both agree: “Tauranga is the main centre in the Bay of Plenty and is the fifth largest city in NZ with a population of around 151,000 people. Over 90% of Tauranga residents typically rate the quality of life between good and extremely good in public surveys. Tauranga has immediate access to over 250km of coastline including ocean beaches and safe harbours. The city is just one hour to the beautiful lakes and forests of the 91

New Zealand.indd 1

central North Island, three hours to the big city experience and international venues of Auckland and four hours to the North Islands Alpine National Park and ski fields. The Bay of Plenty enjoys a moderate coastal climate and some of the highest annual sunshine hours in the country. “As a centre for property investment, Tauranga and the wider Bay of Plenty area are a sound choice both from a residential and rental perspective. The shortage of property, »

that has been further increased by the desirability of Tauranga and surrounds as a lifestyle and business centre, has seen considerable growth in the property market and that growth looks set to continue.” So, who buys in the Bay of Plenty? Jason and Cameron say, “The growth of Tauranga and the wider Bay of Plenty area and its reputation as a desirable lifestyle destination has seen a massive influx of out-of-region buyers in particular from Auckland given its proximity and ability for people to live and work between the centres. Tauranga is high on the list for returning NZ ex-pats as a destination to settle in, and we certainly get our share of foreign buyers.” In terms of budget, “the median house price in Tauranga is currently $720k NZD,” say Jason and Cameron. “This is the fourth highest in the Country, with the highest in Auckland being $1.04M NZD. The national average is currently $749K NZD.” If you are more drawn to the hustle and bustle that comes with city living, then Wellington, could be the location for you. Glen Jones, managing director for New Zealand Sotheby’s International Realty, Wellington states, “Given the geography of Wellington – it is constrained by its very nature. Therefore, the scarcity of land has a domino effect on the quantum of housing. Combined with those supply and demand issues, being the home of government, the location within New Zealand and » the world class amenities, all

The main living, master suite and all the bedrooms in this large home look out on the magnificence of a water view, framed by plenty of greenery. Huge expanses of glass – including a deep window in the master suite upstairs – ensure maximum enjoyment of the commanding outlook.

help make Wellington an extremely desirable and accessible city.” Glen does however say that there are restrictions for international investors. Wellington is the perfect location “to invest in from an international perspective, but given our restrictions on international investors, the options to do so from a residential perspective are limited. However, international investors can acquire new build apartments off-plan (subject to the respective developers obtaining the appropriate approvals).” Wellington has plenty to offer and future prospects for the property market seem favourable according to Glen. “Given the city’s land constraints, the spectacular setting, the many amenities, how central everything is, accessibility, general ease of living here and being the home of the government, Wellington will continue to go from strength to strength – making it the ideal city to invest and/or live in.” Now, let’s not forget about Auckland. Also known as Tāmaki Makaurau, this province sprawls over volcanic hills and is known for its waterfront lifestyle and superb skyline. And its luxury property market? Just as phenomenal as the province’s surroundings. Auckland consistently weighs in as the top performing region with property sales figures hitting the very high end of the New Zealand market. If you’re looking for some of the most popular areas in the province to reside, then turn your attention to Herne Bay and Saint Marys Bay suburbs.

e are delighted to announce the winners of this year’s Europe and UK Property Awards. This is

the fourth section to be judged by our panel of industry experts, with each project demonstrating the dedication, passion and persistence by all the



award-winning companies – the focus on finer details and quality is a constant reminder of how much work goes into every design.

Throughout the years there has been an influx of beautiful projects across Europe and this year was certainly no different. Mercury Tower in particular secured six five-star awards across three categories, while Gowin & Siuta Pracownia Architektoniczna snagged four five-star awards for its Rotunda PKO Bank Polski w Warszawie located in Poland. With four five-star awards under its belt, Asterus Development’s Business Park Rostec City project is the epitome of an integrated development, and once complete will feature business, social and sports infrastructures along with landscaped public spaces and a park on the Moscow River embankment. While judging for the UK was no easy feat, Chancellors managed to stand out from the crowd to secure six five-star awards for the Estate Agency Single Office category across six counties. Griggs won four five-star awards for two projects: 37 Newlands Avenue, and Hanstead House, a luxury residential development in Hertfordshire featuring 11 elegant two-bedroom apartments. These are but a few of the projects that have stood out this year, and we are truly pleased with the outstanding levels of expertise that you continue to showcase. Many congratulations and I can’t wait to see what you have in store for 2021-2022.

With a history dating back 200 years, Városliget was one of the world’s first public parks and is of great pride to the city of Budapest. Under the guidance of the Hungarian Government, the Liget Budapest Project seeks to secure the future importance of this verdant cultural space with the renovation of the historic buildings and the development of new recreational facilities and cultural centres. The site will be home to the award winning Hungarian House of Music and stunning buildings housing The Museum of Ethnography as well as other museums. The new National Conservation and Storage Centre (OMRRK) is actually five buildings

situated on a brownfield site within the park. The buildings now provide world class support for the Museum of Fine Arts, Museum of Ethnography and for the National Gallery, with conservation and restoration spaces and storage facilities. The centre’s design aimed to create harmony between new and existing buildings, reflecting their 19th Century architecture, while also using simple geometry and classic proportions. Inside there are cutting edge art storage rooms, restoration workshops and artwork diagnostic labs. The site is now home to the Central European Research Institute for Art History. There is also a deep level garage and a visitor centre. With its geothermal heat pump system, solar panels and green roof areas, this key development truly has innovation at its heart.

4 Belovezhskaya Street, Moscow, Russia

JSC F-E has presented an impressive project that has won three awards. The design of Reef Residence, which is a new deluxe clubhouse, reflects passion and artistry. Located on the Sochi Black Sea Coast, the unique natural landscape of this area, along with the concierge service and a beautiful multiservice, including spa and fitness centres, a complex of swimming pools as well as walking and children’s areas represents the gold standard of high quality of living in the Russian Riviera. The architectural solution exploited by the Reef Residence complex was developed by Project Meganom, which is considered one of the most successful design companies in Russia. The main building of Reef Residence is a 12-storey complex, and in an effort to offer residents the opportunity to feast their eyes on the views, the architects designed a cascade of wide terraces. Transparent insets in the

terraces’ parapet walls are key to the everchanging sea becoming an inherent part of every apartment’s interior. The Reef Residence complex also includes two villas with separate entrances and their own outdoor lounge zones with swimming pool, waterfall and tropical gardens. Both are situated below the apartment building level and are in close proximity to the calm waters of the Sochi Black Sea Coast, while being totally autonomous. Setting the highest quality standards for seaside apartments, the Reef Residence complex provides an example of responsible and lean development of the Sochi coastline. Its elegant and bright memorable shape, which does not distort the existing city panorama, and a well-thought-out range of façade colours combine to make this project a seamless extension to the relief and nature of the only Russian subtropical resort.

The design brief for PSJ I’ Vily Třebonice near Prague was to achieve simple shapes and forms, with innovative use of the available space, along with maximum privacy. The client requested that the 12 homes offered a high standard of living using quality materials but always remaining mindful of the environment. In creating the property, PSJ I had to consider how the buildings would sit on the existing plot whilst making best use of the natural resources available, such as land, soil, and rain water.

The project was based on one house shape with a variety of details – a unique but unified set of structures, offering an overall character for the location. The design concept was for imposing high ceilings, up to 3.6 metres, creating spaces with personalised interiors suited to each home. Each property boasts an enormous terrace with a connection between indoors and outdoors in every room. To further enhance life in the development, the project included communal areas for socialising and play, such as an adult workout zone and basketball court, as well as children’s playground. The properties enjoy cooling and radiant ceilings, plus underfloor heating via heat pumps, a green roof offering insulation within the house, and an integrated rainwater irrigation system.

Its award-winning project involved the redesign of The Garden House – a two-bedroom bungalow located on the southwest side of Wandsworth Common in London. All the non-original parts of the bungalow were demolished prior to the extension and renovation, leaving a small portion of the garden elevation and the full original roof finished with curved tiling. The fence by the entrance was modernised with the use of hardwood trellis, which replaced the existing non-original brick boundary wall. Contemporary wood frame and aluminium-

The interior materials were carefully chosen with a range of neutral colours taking centre stage, whilst a clever balance of natural and artificial lighting allowed for an airy and well-lit environment. Natural oak wood planks were fitted throughout, with the exception of the shower rooms which were clad with porcelain tiles. The bespoke kitchen was designed and built onsite with MDF natural oak veneered panels, quartz worktops and simple appliances, while the shower room in the basement features a slightly illuminated area that is made possible by a Velux sun tunnel.

Located in the capital city of the Lausanne West District in the Vaud Canton of Switzerland, this mixed-use residential development was constructed on an ancient empty site, and plays its role by revitalising and giving a new aesthetic and green look to its neighbourhood. The project affirms strongly its presence in the urban context, occupying a residual slender parcel of 644m² with a footprint of 135m², leaving space for urban private gardens on the

ground floor and a common green area in the north-west part of the site. The building, structured around four levels above ground and an underground level, is oriented south west/north east to offer multiple exposure angles. It is composed of thirteen new apartments, mostly addressed to the increasing student’ population and to young professionals looking for their first real estate investment. The ground floor houses two symmetrical apartments with private outdoor space; the first floor has four studios, each with a large balcony, while the second floor replicates the typology of the ground floor, this time with a long linear balcony of 23m² for each apartment. There are four studios on the third floor and a single penthouse apartment on the top floor set across 106m².

Specialising in the renovation of historically significant buildings, KR Properties manages a portfolio of major assets including offices, apartments, commercial premises and warehouses. Situated in central Moscow, just a short walk from Red Square, the club house Kuznetsky Most 12 by Lalique was constructed in 1877. This immaculate 19th century building has been sympathetically restored into 61 luxury apartments by KR Properties in collaboration with the iconic crystal manufacturer. This unique partnership has led to Lalique creations being incorporated in many of the fixtures, fittings and furnishings in the interior.

The project comprises three buildings with separate entrances, lobbies, lifts and stairs, decorated with Lalique fittings, along with the bathrooms of each apartment. For the renovation KR Properties was even able to refer to the original plans for the building to ensure a sympathetic restoration. The project aimed not only to remove relatively modern unsympathetic additions to the interior, but to pay tribute to the original architects by reinstating many original features which had been lost. Marketing for this project included specifically designed logos and colour palettes. In keeping with the concept of sales privacy, there was no direct advertising and the website carried only minimal public information. Marketing was further enhanced by beautifully presented bespoke literature, beautiful events and even a film.

In addition it pays close attention not only to what’s best for the person who is destined to live there, but also what’s best for the local area, and the planet as a whole. This is something that the company terms #puredesign. Designed by the renowned architect Ricardo Bofill, at over 100 metres tall Ikon is the highest residential tower in Valencia. This iconic project stands proudly, its two towers forming a gateway to the city, and providing a total of 203 apartments, with the tallest tower reaching 30 floors. The predominantly white façade with its distinctive curves and vertical metallic

slats makes the building visually appealing, and captures the dynamic essence of this city. A large lobby welcomes residents and visitors. There is a Mediterranean garden, complete with pool and solarium, a gym and space set aside for communal eating – giving the whole a sense of community. Inside, each home takes full advantage of the available space, and blends entertaining and private areas in harmony. This iconic building was devised to complement and balance others in the locality, providing an architectural coherence, whilst at the same time laying a legacy for future planning. Ikon epitomises Kronos Homes’ #puredesign philosophy, clearly focusing on architecture, design and quality.

Iulius Town benefits from an ultra-central location and creates a direct and natural connection within the city centre of Timişoara, linking important tourist objectives and central attractions with the main relaxation destination and the largest regional business hub. With its transition from an early 2000s enclosed mall to a shopping and business district, Iulius Town is not an average realestate development. The mission was to

develop a unique regeneration project and fit it like the final puzzle piece within one of the strongest cities in Romania. With the suspended garden as the new star of the development, a variety of cafés and restaurants were added with terraces and panoramic views overlooking the green area. The ground levels of the newly added office buildings include new retail services aimed at catering to the employees working within the project. New atriums inside the mall were created and the overall circulation was simplified to allow seamless access for visitors to park. With three office buildings in operation (50,000m² GLA) and another one under construction (52,000m² GLA), Iulius Town is also the regional business hub and a creative multinational community accommodating over 30 companies and 5,000-plus employees, being a genuine force of development.

with a full-size swimming pool, a beauty salon, a children’s club, and much more. In the circular gallery you’ll find five comfortable lobbies. Each lobby has an entrance to two of the city houses The spacious courtyard was thought up by European architectural studio S&P Architektura Krajobrazu. The courtyard will feature jogging and cycling paths, promenade areas among mature trees, a playground and a man-made brook with a picturesque pond. In order to achieve a truly unique exterior appearance, a composite façade structure was used which flawlessly combines clinker bricks with ventilated and render façade systems. It truly is one of the most uncompromising housing estates in Russia.

The company presents two beautiful projects in Cyprus. The first, Adonis Beach Villas is a luxurious development set in one of the most desirable locations in Paphos, and based on the success of the nearby Apollo Beach Villas located in Chloraka.

 P B, on the island of Thassos, you can find The Caeli Villa 200 metres from the sea. Developed by Novalis Terra Properties, the building is constructed across two levels, astride a linear axis. On the ground level you will find the living room, dining room and kitchen on one side of the axis, while the two guest rooms and a bathroom are located on the other side. The main bedroom can be found on the first floor – it is coupled with a bathroom and walk-in wardrobe. The clean minimal lines throughout are combined with the richness of the surroundings to create a peaceful space. The use of stone, water, large windows and white tones are used to highlight the

architectural design. Other elements such as earthly tones, uniform clean surfaces and handmade objects add to the personality of the space while preserving its simplicity. Novalis Terra Properties also incorporated white plaster, white metallic elements, warm tones and monochromatic surfaces which all harmonise with the surrounding atmosphere. Everything has been conceived to provide maximum space and a sense of openness to the owner, and every aspect of the interior design has been carefully selected, from the intricate stone detailing to the positioning of the windows – all these contribute to the sense that Caeli Villa is an exceptional residence.

 A V is based in Zagreb, Croatia. His striking designs are enhanced by his signature use of light to outline structures, and reflective surfaces to mirror the cast light. There is a beautiful simplicity about his clean lines and sense of proportion and perspective. Villa Eleven is a four bedroom, five bathroom family home on an elevated site in Dalmatia, above the Adriatic Sea. The villa is designed to bring peace of mind and privacy while also blending with its environment. The whole property has been raised 250cm off the ground to enable the sea to be visible from every corner inside. The exterior is finished in a mixture of concrete and stone. The

overhanging roof provides shade for the main terrace and the white colour of the building serves to reflect the heat of the sun away from the interior. All lights are LED, while rainwater irrigates the garden. Both internally and externally, this property perfectly delivers Ante’s signature use of light and mirrors, with pillars which by day reflect the ever-changing sky, and by night transform into architectural lamps, with thin bands of light outlining the profile of building. Inside, the feeling is clean and contemporary with high ceilings and cool surfaces. The mirror-clad stairwell is particularly striking, with LEDs under the treads turning this functional area into something truly architectural.

Stylus Architects

76 White Hart Lane, Barnes, London SW13 0PZ, United Kingdom

 S  designed and developed by Stylus Architects for a private client located in Roehampton. The brief was to create an open plan entertaining space on the ground floor which visually connected to the garden whilst retaining and refurbishing the existing living room at the front of the house. Two additional bedrooms were added and the garden was also integrated into the design. The project features a visually floating Corten exoskeleton which frames the glass sliding doors behind. The internal and external spaces are visibly separated by the Corten feature frame, but the boundaries of the internal and external spaces are dissolved through the matching floor finishes, levels, and the large glass façade.

Internally, the kitchen overlooks the dining area and the dining table is centred on the vertical carved brick slot wall which seamlessly lines up with the linear lighting trough above it. This is mirrored in the geometry of the adjacent roof light. At night, the wall and ceiling trough light up, providing a warm background light to define the edges of the recesses. The dining table is centred under a large feature pendant light, which provides further light and emphasis to this central design. In short, Stylus Architect’s layout of this single residence creates a visually stimulating space that communicates with the viewer in different ways, depending on the angle from which the building is viewed.

 N Z has for nearly 20 years provided end-to-end design services for all manner of clients, including developers and architects, as well as commercial and residential property owners. Here, the Designworx team worked remotely, as the home was situated on the other side of the world – on the Isle of Man, off the western coast of England. They say that technology and globalisation have given them the tools to communicate, “so that we can operate seamlessly with the clients to provide an overall design that they love.” The original 18th Century house was retained, but latter extensions demolished, to make way for a new wing. The new extension was to house not only the family

living area, but also the kitchen, bedrooms and underground gymnasium, steam room, children’s media space and cellar. It was down to Designworx to design a colour scheme, layout, furnishings and accessories for each room. It was important that the spaces felt welcoming and warm while incorporating striking contemporary elements such as a glass walkway between the buildings, and ultra-modern bathrooms throughout. Working remotely meant that there was a greater focus on effective and clear communication to enable the clients to see exactly what the designers had in mind. The end result blends a time-honoured building with its new structure, and delivers an interior which reflects the family and their passions and interests.

During that time they have worked on many projects which have helped to shape and define the city of Łódź, Poland’s third largest city, 120km from Warsaw. Monopolis is one such project. The main building, which dates back to 1902, is one of the most recognisable in Łódź. The renovation of this former vodka bottling plant creates almost 2,500 light-filled modern workspaces. Along with its food and beverage outlets, concert stage, art gallery, museum and service and fitness facilities, Monopolis provides the city with a great place to work and to relax. With its famous façades, iconic chimney, barrel vaults, industrial lamps and original

staircases, the historical integrity of the main building has been retained, while at the same time adding not only new buildings, but focusing on small details such as street furniture, which all serves to create an amazing location. Designed by Polish architect, Grupa 5 Architekci and with sustainability, safety, security and innovation at its heart, the offices are based in the main historic building, as well as in two brand new buildings. It is this combination of the historic with the contemporary which sets the project apart. By carefully considering the design, the team has strived to create an atmosphere that appeals to those looking to spend their free time, as well as being a perfect location for business in the heart of the city.

This talented young team are known for their signature subtle blend of refinement and modernity on both residential and commercial spaces in Portugal and overseas. It is that subtle blend which is represented in the redesign of the common areas of the Hotel Eva Senses in Faro. The design concept for the project was to open the hotel to the city and to also bring the city into the hotel; opening it up more to locals as well as hotel guests. As well as improving the façades to encourage more visitors and light into the lobby, the main design concept was a

combination of comfort and modernity both in the lobby area, and on the pre-existing mezzanine. Finely cut walnut wood and warm French oak is combined with elegant and welcoming deep button-back upholstery. Stunning marina views and a double height mural await diners at Bar Adão, where the furnishings are finished in velvet and brass. All the custom furniture was designed and made locally. The hotel now also boasts a beautifully presented bespoke wine shop as part of the lobby offering. As the hotel owner is a renowned wine producer in Portugal, this new outlet not only supplies the hotel itself, but also retails to members of the public locally.
