This brochure celebrates the winners of not just one but two important regions competing in the International Property Awards’ programme. Our panel has deliberated during several judging sessions to determine those entries displaying the most innovative, imaginative, eco-friendly and sustainable elements. Above all, our judges demand excellence in every aspect. Highlighted below are just a few of the top scoring entrants – my congratulations to these companies and to all winners listed in this publication. Arabia’s Best Property was awarded to The Reserve in Dubai by Al Barari for offering boundless luxurious living both inside and out. Doha Villa in Qatar by Living In Interiors won Arabia’s Best Interior Design by creating a living environment combining opulence and a sense of well-being. Winner of Arabia’s Best Apartment was JW Marriott Residences, Dubai Lifestyle City for grand architecture, spectacular views and impeccable furnishings. Africa’s Best Property was won by The Polo House in South Africa from Guardian Projects; a grand residence in every respect, it also has a superb location. Nairobi Villa in Kenya by Zen Interiors inspired by the surrounding African landscape was worthy winner of Africa’s Best Interior Design. Heralded Africa’s Best Apartment, the simply stunning Apprentice Apartment by AdMakers International is within the National Bank House in South Africa. Finally, I would like to remind you of one of the many additional benefits of entering the awards. We are again hosting a series of Property & Hospitality Shows to which all entrants are invited. These events prove invaluable for targeted networking and forging new business partnerships with companies of equal high standing.

A towering opportunity

Berkeley Homes is launching the latest phase at One Tower Bridge, Wessex House, offering the opportunity to own a property at one of the most talked-about luxury London residential developments, located on one of the last great riverside sites available in the capital. One Tower Bridge will rank amongst the most luxurious of prime central London developments, with residents having access to five-star facilities on site including a boutique hotel, a -hour concierge managed by Harrods Estates, a gymnasium, a private health club with a swimming pool, sauna, steam room and vitality pool, a virtual golf facility and a residents-only business lounge.

Landmark living

Nowhere else in the world can you live amongst some of the world’s most iconic landmarks, including the Tower of London, Tower Bridge and the capital’s newest showpiece, The Shard. Whether you want to be close to the capital’s finest cultural destinations, the thriving business districts or world-class schools and universities, its location is unrivalled. Designed by internationally respected architects Squire and Partners, the . hectare site will provide  private apartments and penthouses, most of which have private balconies, terraces or roof gardens. Built in four different architectural styles, the buildings vary in size, architectural appearance and height, taking full advantage of the location beside the River Thames. 10

International Property Luxury Collection

Each apartment features the latest in integrated Smart Home Technology. Residents are able to adjust their heating and air conditioning or control their entertainment and security systems from anywhere in the world.

Coveted collection

Wessex House is an exclusive collection of  apartments and  penthouses situated at the heart of the development. The interiors have been designed by Darling Associates, who have worked on some of the most prestigious central London developments including One Hyde Park in Knightsbridge and Embassy Court in St John’s Wood. From the lobby to the individual apartments, Wessex House has the feel of a five-star hotel. Darling Associates has designed elegant spaces sourcing the finest materials from across Europe with opulent Italian and French stone and timber, all complemented by bronze detailing.

One Tower Bridge residents will live directly next door to Potters Fields Park, part of the Thames Walk, and will benefit from access to this acclaimed public space, as well as a beautifully landscaped exclusive private courtyard garden, with three individually designed areas. The opportunity for both investors and home buyers is unique – an iconic address offering exceptional one, two, three and four-bedroom properties in the heart of one of the most vibrant parts of central London, with access to five-star facilities on site. ■ Further information From £785,000 / €932,000 / $1.24m One Tower Bridge Sales Suite St Olaves Tooley Street London, SE1 2HZ Telephone: +44 (0)207 871 0011 Web: www.onetowerbridge.co.uk Email: onetowerbridge@berkeleygroup.co.uk

Kenya Image 360’s philosophy focuses on the functionality and flexibility as well as the uniqueness and attractiveness of its interior design projects. When Africa Oil set up offices in Nairobi, Image 360 focused the design concept on the culture of the locale in which its Kenyan oil exploration sites are based.

Nigeria Spaceweb Consulting competed for the design of the proposed headquarter of the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State. The chosen theme was ‘work, play and sleep on the canoe’. This design concept symbolises the typical lifestyle of local inhabitants and has therefore played a major role in dictating the canoe shaped hull of the building podium. The result is a sensitive, functional, symbolic, environmentally friendly and energy efficient building which meets the brief perfectly and is appreciated by all.
