Announcing the best property professionals in Arabia and Africa… Anyone setting their sights on finding the best architect, developer, interior designer or estate agency in the Middle East or across the African continent should find this publication invaluable. Both the Arabian Property Awards and African Property Awards are part of the International Property Awards which are now in their 19th year. We hold a series of annual competitions to find the best properties and property professionals within different countries. But the contest doesn’t stop there - the International Property Awards’ judging panel reviews the top scoring winners from every category of each country and they vie for the coveted World’s Best titles. Consequently, some of Arabia and Africa’s best property companies are about to compete on a truly global scale. Congratulations to the companies highlighted below and to all the other winners listed in this book. Here are just a few of the international nominees. Da’Em Homes in Riyadh by Da’em Real Estate Investment Company took the title of Arabia’s Best Property. Our judges commented, “This property is excellent in terms of its layout and sustainability.” The judging panel’s verdict of “Excellently presented and meeting all requirements of the client,” earned Bishop Design the accolade of Arabia’s Best Interior Design for a private villa in Al Barari. As for Arabia’s Best Estate Agency, Allsopp & Allsopp were rewarded for their “brilliant and extensive range of services.” Moving on to Africa - Best Residential Development went to Mandharini by Hello Developments for being “By far the most comprehensive development with excellent detail covering every element.” Kritzinger Architects claimed the crown for Africa’s Best Architecture for Makana House in South Africa (shown above). Its ‘transparent’ design offers a seamless transition between internal and external living areas and draws the eye towards its stunning views. Every entrant from the International Property Awards is invited to meet other winners in order to generate new contacts and extend their business boundaries at our Property Networking Business Events. We aim to make connections between the best in the business, enabling winners to benefit from each other’s strengths. In turn, this helps to raise the international bar within the property industry, promoting higher standards levels of design, build, eco-friendliness and services.
