Casa Munita Gonzalez

Announcing the Americas’ Best Property Professionals. . . Official airline partner

Innovation, eco-awareness and an all-important ‘wow-factor’, these are just some of the many qualities that our judges demand from entries of these prestigious awards. Excellence is the order of the day and I think you will agree on browsing through the following pages of winners that the bar is being raised higher than ever. Central and South America’s Best Architecture Single Residence went to Casa Munita Gonzalez in Chile. Designed by Arias Arquitectos and Surtierra Arquitectura, this amazing house is built using panels of earth-filled wire mesh, supported by beams and steel pillars. The Caribbean’s Best Apartment proved to be the ‘Grand Residence’ at The WaterColours. One of the tallest in the Cayman Islands, it covers 7,200 uberluxurious square feet and has the most fantastic island views. Costa Hollywood Condo Resort in Florida, scooped the award for the USA’s Best Development Multi-Units. Featuring 307 ‘smart units’, many with terraces and ocean views, it is complemented by a host of leisure amenities. The accolade for Canada’s Best Apartment Interior Design went to Po Ku Design Build for a simply stunning Art Deco apartment at The Four Seasons in Toronto. Very well done to these winning companies and all those listed in this publication. May I also remind you of one of the many additional benefits of entering the awards programme. We will shortly be commencing our series of Property & Hospitality Shows for 2014 to which all current and past entrants are invited. These events prove invaluable for targeted networking and forging new business partnerships with companies of an equal high standing. Please refer to our website at www.propertyawards.net for full details of dates, locations and how to register.

REVOLUTION

Practise in Silence. Anytime. However dedicated you are to encouraging the next great concert pianist, and however tolerant your neighbours, there will be times when the deep, resonant sound of a Yamaha grand piano are, well, inappropriate. For those times there’s our new SH Silent System which can be switched on in an instant. All the sensitivity and touch of a real Yamaha grand piano action and all the sound of a Yamaha CFX concert grand delivered through headphones... while others can watch TV or listen to their own music in the same room. Early mornings, late nights, no problem. Practise in silence without disturbing others or being disturbed. Find out more at uk.yamaha.com/silentpiano
